E!’s red carpet coverage is up for grabs, and someone’s going to get hurt.
Maria Menounos and Giuliana Rancic, E!‘s two darlings (I guess) are reportedly duking it out over who gets to cover the best award shows this season.
On November 11th, E! announced that Rancic would cover this year’s American Music Awards. Radar, however, claims that Rancic is getting demoted to "second-tier award shows."
Like, the Kids Choice Awards?
"Maria is making sure that she is getting the better award shows," a source claims. "She and Giuliana are fighting over the most prestigious shows."
Hell’s bells, ladies.
"Maria is confident that she is going to get the top spots over Giuliana," the source added. "She has made it known that she is the star now and she wants to make sure that she is doing the Oscars and the Golden Globes."
E! announced in July that Rancic would step down as co-host of E! News, but she would remain as host of E!’s Live From The Red Carpet and co-host of Fashion Police.
Rancic told People that rumors of a feud between her and Menounos were "absurd."
Not so, the report alleges.
"There are so many bad feelings between the two of them and they are totally vying for the same jobs," the source said. And they aren’t going to be a team, they’re going to go up against each other for the best jobs.
"Maria wants to do everything but she doesn’t care about the smaller shows and that’s why Giuliana is getting them."
Come on, now. Can’t they just host it together? That mani-cam can’t carry the show on its own!
"Giuliana probably has no idea what she is up against," the source continued. "Maria is going to make sure that she does whatever she has to to make sure she is the top red carpet host."
I have this image of Menounos tapping her fingers together over a cauldron, and it won’t go away.
