Book Review: Going off Script

Going Off Scrip
By Guiliana Rancic

How I survived a crazy childhood, cancer, and Clooney's 32 on-screen rejections

Giuliana Rancic is best known for interviewing A-listers on the red carpet and E! News, skewering their shocking style choices on Fashion Police, and giving viewers a front-row seat to her marriage and family life on her reality show, Giuliana & Bill. What fans may not know is that she learned English from Eddie Murphy got her American citizenship so she could be a beauty queen, and used to have a bad habit of stealing cars for fun. Giuliana bares this and so much more in her hilarious warm, and inspiring memoir Going Off Script. From a young age she dreamed of being a TV anchorwoman, but because of her inclination toward mischief and away from schoolwork, her bath to her dream job was far from straight. After a fateful (and mortifying) encounter with the late Senator Ted Kennedy, she learned that Hollywood news was where she belonged. 

Thankfully for readers, this epiphany led her to a bounty of L.A. misadventures (featuring notables such as Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Russell Crowe) and an entertaining behind the scenes perspective on what our favorite celebrities are really like. In spite of her glamours Hollywood life, however Giuliana could not escape some rockier times, including her battles with infertility and breast cancer. Here for the first time, she reveals the whole truth behind her well-publicized struggles and the highly controversial decisions she had to make. And of course at the heart of it all are the two loves of her life, her husband Bill and her son, Duke who keep her strong through everything. Candid, funny and poignant, Going Off Script is an autobiography that proves you don't always have to follow the rules to get the life you've always dreamed of. 

Verdict: I love Guiliana Rancic, she's gorgeous and absolutely hilarious on Fashion Police. So of course I was excited to get her book, and had quite high expectations for it. Going Off Script didn't disappoint. It offers many stories from all aspects of Giuliana's life that are entertaining, and down to earth. She's a great story teller, and after reading Going off Script I'm even a bigger fan of Guiliana.
