Move over Giuliana Rancic, Maria Menounos is reportedly taking over at E! News. The longtime news correspondent moved over to the network last year after leaving Extra and will replace Giuliana Rancic as co-anchor of the celebrity news show.
So this week Giuliana announced her departure from E! News (but she will stay for Fashion Police & Live From The Red Carpet) and Maria’s been waiting in the wings for the opportunity and allegedly the ladies dont like each other. One source told Page Six, “It’s the battle of the bitches. They’re like oil and water. They cannot stand each other. They’ve always been rivals. Maria sees Giuliana as competition and it goes back years. They never speak and they won’t appear on-set together. It’s kind of unspoken that if she is in the building, Giuliana wants nothing to do with her.”
Another source said it’s just not like that for Maria who looks up to Giuliana, “Maria doesn’t have any issues with Giuliana, she sees her as a role model. Giuliana doesn’t feel the same way.” Do you think its catty between the ladies? or just some old-fashion hearsay? I’ve seen cattiness in person, I went to an all-girls high school! HA!
I’m a Maria fan and have been since the show, Channel One played in high school. #Throwback.
