Giuliana Rancic: Women Have to "Compromise" to Have It AllShana Aborn
Life couldn’t be better for Giuliana Rancic as 2012 comes to an end. She has a popular reality series with husband Bill Rancic in addition to her job at E!, she has a clean bill of health after undergoing a double mastectomy to treat her early-stage breast cancer, and best of all, she and Bill are now first-time parents to little Edward Duke.
What’s more, she thinks every woman can enjoy a life like hers.
The Giuliana & Bill star sat down for a candid interview with The Huffington Post, in which she was asked whether women really can “have it all” (defined as having a career, happy marriage and family).
“Wow, that is a seriously great question,” she replied. “True, but with compromise. Definitely with compromise.”
It’s hard to tell where Giuliana has been compromising. It looks as though she’s managing to keep up with her busy schedule and still be there for her son.
So who gets the bottle ready when Duke starts feeling hungry in the wee hours? “It depends on who has what schedule that day,” Giuliana explains. “If he flies in late, then I jump up.”
The Rancics’ love for each other is what makes it all possible. “Here’s the thing with Bill and I — if you put your marriage first, then your children can only benefit from that,” she says. “There is nothing better than children seeing their parents happy.”
Okay, maybe it’s easier to have it all when money isn’t an issue, and when you don’t have to stress about arranging the best childcare when you’re at work. But at least she acknowledges that something has to give when you’re trying to achieve a number of personal goals.
Usually, it’s sleep!
