Giuliana & Bill
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Giuliana & Bill is a mild and lighthearted celebrity reality show, but over the years it's dealt with some very serious themes, including infertility, breast cancer, surrogacy, and other mature topics. The language is mild (an occasional "hell" or "damn"), and, despite references to looking sexy and occasional scenes of the couple talking in bed, there's not a lot of risque behavior. Drinking is visible during social functions.
What's the story?
GIULIANA & BILL follows the lives of television host Giuliana Rancic and her husband, entrepreneur Bill Rancic, best known as the first winner of The Apprentice. From their newlywed days to becoming the proud parents of their son Duke, viewers get to watch as they try to balance marriage, careers, and parenthood while living in Chicago and Los Angeles. The obstacles to getting what they want out of life have been many, but somehow the duo manages to make it work.
Is it any good?
From coping with a house renovatio, to interviewing perspective pediatricians, Giuliana & Bill offers a voyeuristic look into the lives of a couple that has weathered serious illness, infertility issues, and all the everyday challenges that come with marriage and parenthood.
They're a likable couple, and adding to the show's appeal are the behind-the-scenes moments of the various TV series and award shows that Giuliana hosts. Overall, the show features enough odd or humorous moments to keep reality-television fans entertained.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the reasons why the Rancics are on a reality show. Why do they choose to discuss some of their issues so publicly? Is it for the attention? Money? Do you think the way they act on the show is the same way they act in real life?
