Rancic, anchor of “E! News” and co-host of “Fashion Police,” was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and underwent a double mastectomy as part of her treatment. She will be a special guest model for the day.  Prizes up for grabs in the episode include several items for which a percentage of proceeds go to breast cancer research, including a custom road bicycle designed by a breast cancer survivor, smartphones with specially designed Pink cases, a laptop computer and new kitchen appliances.  In addition, all audience members will receive designer bags and scarves, plus a sapphire and sterling silver charm necklace, each from lines which also donate a percentage of proceeds to breast cancer research.

Later, Rancic will introduce a special Showcase that she helped create, which includes trips to Washington, D.C. – near her hometown of Bethesda, Md. – and the Riviera Maya in Mexico, plus an Italian-made convertible, celebrating her Italian roots.  Other prizes up for grabs in the episode include a trip to Italy with a private tour of the Vatican, designer shoes, custom outdoor furniture, a 65-inch 3D HDTV and new cars.

    Guiliana Rancic is fine because she’s has an important message and is on primetime. But celebrity models throughout the season? Not a huge fan.

  • Joseph

    My girlfriend is a breast cancer survivor and she also loves “Price Is Right”. She’ll be setting her DVR for it!

  • Rod

    Not Giuliana Rancic! If you cross-bred a praying mantis with a human, she is what I imagine the baby would look like! If there was ever a face for radio, this woman is it! i can’t be the only one who feels this way.
