Giuliana Rancic Explains: This is Why I'm So Thin

by at .

Giuliana Rancic has more important things to worry about right now than the state of E!'s Fashion Police.

The future of that series is uncertain at the moment, due to the departures of Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne, but Rancic spoke to People Magazine this week about something more personal than her career:

Her health.

Thin Giuliana Rancic

"I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can't," admits the TV host.

Rancic has come under Internet (troll) fire after her last couple red carpet appearances, with many wondering whether her cancer has returned and many labeling her as "disgustingly skinny" due to her weight loss.

"I eat more than any of my friends," Giuliana says. "I eat a very robust, healthy, balanced diet and dessert almost every night. I'm not hiding from anything."

But the star’s oncologist, Dr. Dev Paul, recently explained to Rancic that the drug she is taking to combat the breast cancer with which she was diagnosed in 2011 can alter metabolism.

She is simply unable to pack on pounds.

"It's really hurtful," Rancic says of the criticism. “But there's nothing I can do. I'm lucky that I even have the type of cancer that reacts to the medicine."

Rancic underwent a double mastectomy four years ago. The procedure and the cancer diagnosis have helped give her perspective.

"I refuse to be broken [by what people say]," she says. "I have so many beautiful things in my life."
