Giuliana Rancic doesn't want to appear 'pushed out' at E! Entertainment; recommits with Maria Menounos likely joining.


She's the reigning queen of television red carpet coverage and Giuliana Rancic of E! Entertainment (DStv 124) is reportedly recommitting to E! Entertainment - not wanting to be perceived as being pushed out when the ambitious entertainment reporter Maria Menounos joins E! Entertainment very soon.

Giuliana Rancic who planned to scale back her responsibilities at E! to focus on her 2 year old son Duke, apparently decided to not do so anymore after word started circulating that Maria Menounos will be joining E! Entertainment soon, according to The New York Daily News.

E! Entertainment had no comment.

Giuliana Rancic reportedly doesn't want it to look like her diminished appearance on E! Entertainment - which was planned independently of Maria Menounos joining - is because of Maria Menounos showing up as a new entertainment reporter and anchor.

Giuliana Rancic anchors E! News, is a panelist on Fashion Police, appears in her reality show Giuliana & Bill and does red carpet coverage at awards shows during Hollywood's awards season.

According to quoted insiders, Giuliama Rancic who is the face of E! Entertainment doesn't want to appear "pushed out of a network she helped to make a success".
