Giuliana Rancic comes back tonight in her own reality show on the Style Network – Giuliana & Bill. It’s actually one of the better reality shows I watch. No huge train wrecks, just the occasional husband and wife bickering along with their ongoing struggles to conceive a baby. Of course you know Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer late last year and from the commercials it appears that the show will chronicle her diagnosis and recovery from a double mastectomy. The promo for Giuliana & Bill will play after a super short commercial below.
My hope is that Giuliana and Bill let the audience in on the complexities of this disease. I’m afraid that Giuliana will appeared to be cured by the magic of television. Breast cancer is complex and each patient’s diagnosis is totally different. Did you know there are at least seven different types of breast cancer? From the “good” kind to the “bad” kind and all the others in between. And there isn’t one single way to treat breast cancer.
I wrote a post about Giuliana’s decision to opt out of chemotherapy several months ago. I still don’t understand her decision but it’s not for me to understand. Treatment is a very personal decision and one must weigh the pros and cons with what information is available to them.
So, I’m excited to watch the season debut of Giuliana & Bill tonight. Do you plan on watching?
I am in no way, shape or form promoting the Style Network or Giuliana & Bill.
