And Giuliana’s just been replaced by Maria on E! News as head anchor lady. YIKES. So awks. I really question E!’s move here though. Maria is one of the worst red carpet interviewers I have ever seen, and that’s really saying something. I will watch a red carpet for practically anything. I live for award shows. And Maria is just awful. Worse than Giuliana trying to do tequila shots with George and Amal. That’s bad.
Although Rancic has been plotting her exit for some time, our source says that Menounos being named co-anchor at E! News was “a major slap in the face for Giuliana.
She feels like she brought E! News back to relevance, because it was going to be canceled at one point . . . to have her archnemesis now anchoring is a major blow.”
Another insider adds: “Maria was hired only because Giuliana was planning to leave. Maria is feeling a lot of pressure to succeed right now, because all of her shows on the network have failed. Execs are nervous and upset about the deal they’ve inherited.”
So this could really blow up in their faces. Just do yourself a favor and switch over to Access Hollywood and good ‘ole Billy Bush. You know it’s bad when I suggest that.
