Giuliana Rancic recovering after double mastectomy for breast cancer




E! News and Fashion Police personality Giuliana Rancic is recovering after a double mastectomy for breast cancer on Tuesday night, E! reports. Her husband, inaugural Apprentice winner Bill Rancic says she's just fine.

"G is doing really well," Bill tells E!. "Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result. She had a little bit of pain through the night but is feeling much better this morning and was cracking jokes."

The network even relayed a message from the 37-year-old herself: "I want to thank all the viewers and fans for their support and prayers. The tweets and notes have not gone unnoticed. I am very grateful," she says.

Giuliana also had reconstructive surgery after her breasts were removed. The E! host decided on the mastectomy when lumpectomies failed to remove all the cancerous cells. She was diagnosed three months ago.
