Giuliana Rancic has gone through a double mastectomy surgery just weeks ago, but the E! News and Fashion Police host is gushing about her recovery. Rancic said that her life has changed “in so many ways,” but in a good way. Not only has her bond with her husband, Bill Rancic, strengthened, but she said she’s been brought closer to God. "We go to church every Sunday. And we did before, but it never meant as much as it does now," she said, People reports. "We prayed on our own, but now we prayed together and you'll never know how much that means until you do it. Bill and I have changed our lives in that one way." The red carpet correspondent wasn’t regretful about undergoing the surgery, which removed both of her breasts, because it “brought my risks down to 95 to 100 percent.” "I didn't give two sh**s about my breasts. I didn't care that at the Golden Globes, I wouldn't be able to show cleavage," she explained. "A lot of people were shocked. They said, 'Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that's part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.' And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I'm in the wrong business." MSNBC reports that at the same event, the E! luncheon at the Television Critics Association Winter Session in Pasadena, Rancic admits that some of her friendships have changed. “Some people, like they don’t know how to act around me and I’ll say ‘Guys!’ And I’ll kind of break the ice like, ‘I’m exactly who I was before I was diagnosed. I’m the exact same person,’” she said.
