The E! News host says the public doesn't know the full story.

on Jul 17, 2013 - The Dish0

Giuliana Rancic and her hubby Bill Rancic are one of Hollywood's hottest (and happiest) couples and know what it takes to make a marriage work, but Andy Cohen asked the E! News host to weigh in on an infamous love triangle on last night's Watch What Happens Live.

Many viewers demanded to know why Guiliana "is such a bitch to Brandi Glanville and a kiss-ass to homewrecker LeAnn Rimes." Has Rancic chosen sides in the battle over Eddie Cibrian? Her short answer: "Yes!"

"Before I really knew LeAnn, I interviewed LeAnn. I think there's more to the Eddie/Brandi story than maybe we all know. So I don't think we should be so quick to judge that whole situation," Rancic says. "A lot happens behind closed doors. It's like, who knows what was really going on in the marriage, you know what I mean?"

And aside from that, Giuliana said she didn't appreciate comments Brandi made about the fact that the Rancics were pregnant via a surrogate in response to a Glanville slam on Fashion Police.

"I thought, here's the thing: say what you want to me, don't ever bring my baby into that. Ever," Rancic says. "I love Beverly Hills, and I love all the Housewives, but I will cut Brandi if she talks about my baby again."

Watch Giuliana explain why she sides with LeAnn Rimes over Brandi Glanville and tell us in the comments: was Brandi wrong to bring up the Rancics' baby?

First - Giuliana should know better than to call someone Crazy. She thought that was funny but it apparently hurt, as Brandy has always said she fights back and she can become nasty when she does fight back. The truth is the baby is G & B's baby no matter how it came in this world and the comment from Brandy was abrasive. But not unexpected. You can not expect to say something about someone and not get hurt too. So they both got their shots and now this is old news.  What should happen is that everyone should apologize. The problem is that people think they can say anything about you and that crap won't hit them. 

As far as the word Surrogate ... well the baby may have come out of a Surrogate, but that baby is G & B's baby. Obviously Giuliana is sensitive about the word. Get over it. There are wonderful people out there who are willing to help parents have their baby. They are called Surrogates. So what. Now if you take that word out Giuliana may not have gotten as angry about what Brandy said. Kids should not be brought into adult matters and enough said about that.

On Watch What Happens, what I did have a problem with is that Giuliana did not show empathy to the plight of women who have husbands who deceive them. To get on the Leann and Eddy's bandwagon because of what Brandy said makes no common sense.

Now it may never happen to her, but if it does, she will be just as devastated as Brandy was and still is.  Her husband Bill, when he did not answer the question about Donald Trump on Watch What Happens,  and danced all over that question, it showed a lack of gumption. If Donald's own family will stand up to him and say that he needs to stop his behavior, why can he not stand for something and say it like it is as well. As parents your kids have you as examples. Bill and Giuliana need to get show some common sense when it comes to some of those matters. Leann and Eddy cheated on their spouses and instead of owning up to it and handling it as adults should, they cheated. Nothing can justify that. Not even a swing at Brandy.

Giuliana is an idiot. Can't stand her. For her to insinuate that there is more to the story which made it ok for Eddy to cheat with Leanne is crazy. Bet she would not feel it is ok to cheat if it were Bill Rancic.

Totally agree! I think the public is finally starting to see the TRUE Brandi. She has made a career out of making people feel sorry for her and has no talent. 4 years is long enough to whine and cry about being divorced and poor...Time to move on.

What Brandi said about Guiliana's child was completely uncalled, I will agree there.  Don't ever bring innocent children into it! BUT, how can a strong, independent, smart MOTHER & WIFE like Guiliana side with someone who had a hand in tearing apart another family, like Leann?? That is the most disgusting thing to do to someone else and Leann lost a lot of respect from people because of it! If you don't want to be married to someone else any longer, no matter what the issues may be, you still should have the respect and decency to tell your spouse instead of cheating. Brandi was probably not the most perfect wife to Eddie but NO ONE deserves what he and Leann did to her (not to mention, Leann's ex-hubby...). Brandi is the mother of Eddie's children, always will be and Guiliana needs to step away from the situation and keep her opinions to herself.

I have never been a fan of Guiliana and Bill, especially Bill.  I do appreciate how they stick together through all their personal crisis. But after Giuliana sides with someone who broke up someone's family I think even less of her.

I am not a fan of Brandi's I find her really crass.  But I do feel for her because the same thing happened to my mother and it takes quite some time to get over.

I'll tell you exactly what happened behind the breakup of that marriage! Leann Rimes is a spoiled brat who stalked a married man with children and she broke up a family! Then she got the prize and still continued to harass Brandi on twitter making up fake accounts and obsessing over those boys who are not hers she continues too call the paps to have her picture taken with the boys to hurt Brandi! Giuliana your not even a real journalist because when you interviewed Leann you didn't even ask her about her ongoing lawsuit with the teacher with kids with disabilities. Leann Rimes is a selfish, spoiled brat who will sue anyone who is not in her payroll! Brandi stated after you said she was Crazy that she was rooting for you because of you bring sick and you didn't even get to know her side of the story. She said that she hopes Bill doesn't run off with the surrogate! Because you have no idea what it will feels like to lose your husband and have to share 50% with the mistress! Get your facts straight! Leann Rimes Spitfire tanked because no one wants to hear her yoddle over getting everything she wants and to even have the nerve to say the boys love her songs about cheating! Spitfire is basically about getting revenge on Brandi! Giuliana do everyone a favor and go eat something! And Leave Brandi alone! She is a single mom. Something you wouldn't know anything about because you have nannies! I would think again about what side you are on because Brandi spun this whole affair into gold! And Leann lost big time! And Eddie will cheat again!! Your Welcome! #Team Brandi #Team Smiley

I agree with Giuliana that we don't know the whole story. However, I can't condone the cheating. What I don't understand is why people are mad at LeAnn Rimes - shouldn't everyone be made at Eddie?. I'm so tired of women being blamed. Eddie was married and he was the one that took vows! Also, I think Brandi's comment about Baby Duke were cruel and unkind. The Rancic's have been through so much - how about some compassion?

Finally someone not afraid to speak her peace. The only reason why people like Brandi because she was cheated on. Brandi what an idiot to offend someone from e entertainment.

Siding with a cheater who participated in the break up of two marriages.  Guess I don't need to watch the video clip and can delete the WWHL that she was on that I recorded.  Appreciate the heads up!

I used to consider Giuliana and Bill one of the golden couples of  American high society and entertainment world, because their strong love and common sense, values and down to earth approach in life crisis. Unfortunately , Giuliana  made a comment on her show FASHION PLOLICE last week which left me perplexed and make me immediately reconsider my respect and admiration for her. She was commenting on HELENA BONHAM CARTER outfit which was actually a pajama bottom, and she truly , totally looked like a mental psycho patient ,but my dear Giuliana's first comment was. .'SHE LOOK LIKE A NURSE...."

    GIULIANA RANCIC ,with all the respect for the NURSES all over the country and the world ,your comparison to HELENA'S look and the image of a nurse is totally ,despicable ,disrespectful ,and  ,unforgiven.  Anybody can sit in a chair for few minutes look pretty and not even use their own brain, but read already done lines  and make fun of people,make insane unjustified amounts of money, and then cry how hard and how much they work.,, ,,versus work like a slave for 12 hours ,on your feet ,trying to provide safe care and practice for your patients ,while being physically and mentally abuse by co-workers ,physicians, management, ,patients and family members.  That comment showed me you have no respect for a real profession, one of the oldest, in the history of the world.

I love Giuliana Rancic!! outside of Andy she is probably one of my favorite celebrities!! However I can't understand for the life of me why she would co sign Melissa Gorga!!! I mean if Giuliana watches the show she must of watched the christening!! Poor Teresa's father!! One of the saddest things I have ever seen on reality t.v. I'm pretty sure if Giuliana had a younger brother she wouldn't appreciate him upsetting her parents and bragging that they paid her parents rent!!!!! Getting on to Lee ann and Brandy!! What Brandy tweeted was one hundred percent wrong!! However when Giuliana makes comments about not knowing what goes on behind closed doors with Eddie and Brandi's marriage in a way that is talking about Brandi's children!! I mean after all Brandi was pregnant for her son when Eddie was cheating!! and it did affect the entire family!!  And actually I don't care what went on behind closed doors!! That never gives the man the right to cheat on his pregnant wife.....

Any woman cheating on her husband with another married man is all I need to know to not want anything to do with her.  I don't care about the other details because that is the ultimate disrespect in my opinion.  LeAnn gets what she deserves from Brandi and LeAnn shouldn't of slept with her husband if she didn't want to have lifelong conflict with his wife (and mother of his young children).

Now when Giuliana's husband cheats on her with a married women, leaves her with two young children and decides to marry his mistress (who divorced her husband to be with hers) then I will be interested in her opinion.  Furthermore, wait until the mistress is mommy to her kids....

I'm sure there is lots the public doesn't know but there is no excuse for being that kind of trash.

I totally agree.  Brandi is a hot mess and should shut her mouth :)

 @dsalts I disagree.Brandy has always been that way. She does not make excuses for it. But if someone called you crazy you probably have a better way of handling it. She apparently needs some guidance in how to deal with people who treat her badly and know how to push her buttons. There is nothing that one could say about her that would surprise me. She will say it like it is.

 @Mygirls97 Giuliana has a right to her opinion the same way all of us do.

Not to mention being a part of that whole world makes her a better judge of what

really goes down in these situations. Brandi is classless, if you need proof take a look at her recent drunken behavior. What Leann and Eddie did does not win them any prizes but in life there is three sides to each story, yours, mine and the truth. We will never know the truth. But, why bring Giuliana's weight into this whole conversation or her having nannies. She works very hard for her money and success, both of them do, so why not get the help. These two will be the most amazing parents, because they got their stuff together plus the love and support of a wonderful family. I think you swallowed too many bitter pills.

 @Aqualover Double standard as always. Men are expected to cheat and have been allowed to do so for centuries without any repercussions and when women do it, all the nasty stuff comes out. No one is blameless in this whole mess between those three. But Giuliana should not be attacked in that nasty way just because she happens to side with Leann.

 @cocoblodgediva Guiliana's become a little full of herself. Consider the source, nursing is the most noble of professions.

 Eddie was cheating before he met Leann.  Brandi(not my favorite) was pregnant when he was dating Scheana who works for Lisa(RHOBH).

@erica8123 I could not agree with your comments more. "Any woman cheating on her husband with another man is all I need to know... " Giuliana is a moron by anyone's standards. Not surprised she is defending LeAnn.

@Jessieandkitty Broken/damaged marriages get mended everyday. Leann moving in on Eddie and basically stalking him and the boys gave him an excuse not to work it out. Adultery is adultery is adultery. You seem determined to use this excuse for what happened to them and oddly enough I've heard other adulterers do the same....were/are you an adulterer and is that your excuse, too? As for Guilianna she is being really ignorant of the situation all because she has a chip on her shoulder over her baby. It is never okay to bring children into it, but it's funny she's involved him in every show she's ever on anymore. If anyone opened Duke up to the fire it was his own mother Guilianna.

 @housewifefan2012  @Jessieandkitty  @BravoVictim Is is SOOOOO SAD!!!  BOO HOOO! What words would those be...that the family was already broken?????  No I'll stand by those words.  You can't break up a couple if there isn't something wrong with the relationship and if it wasn't Leann then it would have been someone else.  Brandi should be glad he's gone :)

 @Jessieandkitty  @BravoVictim It is sad that you can make fun of a subject so sensitive and I hope that never happens to you. I have personally had a great love who has honored me from the time I have married to him. He even feels that a man or a woman is less of a man or woman if they cheat. You owe it to your partner to be honest. The news said that Leann was banging on his door and that he at that time had no guts to tell his wife it was over, and sent Leann away. Is that the type of man that you want as your husband and the father of your children? Is this the type of mother you want to raise your kids? I hope you never have to go through that and if you do, please remember the words you used in this blog.
