It’s a weird world. On one hand, celebrities want their privacy. On the other hand, some celebrities will throw open the doors to allow camera crews to film their lives. A lot of what happens is just done for the cameras but there are still a lot of personal moments that get shared with the world.
Bill and Giuliana Rancic are among those who have opened their doors to camera crews. The couple — along with their son, Duke — have had a lot of what most people would consider private conversations televised through the E! Network series “Giuliana & Bill.”
Bill says that exposure was something they found challenging at the start and fodder for many discussions.
“But once we first started putting those personal matters out there, we got back a lot more than we gave. And what I mean by that is so many people would say, ‘Thank you. My family now knows what we’re going through with infertility,’ or some of the other subjects that we’ve had to cover over the last seven seasons of the show.,” Bill says.
Giuliana adds that it’s gotten easier over the years.
“We don’t feel the cameras as much as we used to, and we’re okay with it, because there has been a lot of positive feedback. We’re okay just opening up our lives and we just feel like as long as people can relate to us and they enjoy watching us, maybe they get a little takeaway from our show,” Giuliana says. “We’re really happy to put it out there because we just feel at the end of the day, we have this unbelievable platform.
“That instead of just trying to get people to watch our TV shows, it’s like why not try to give back a little bit, too, and actually help people out in the process and help people feel less alone? So we just feel it’s a nice thing.
