Watch genConnect’s Randi Zucker connect with Giuliana Rancic at BlogHer ’11. This entertainment journalist, fashion and beauty expert and co-anchor of E! News spills on how you can get fit, healthy and gorgeous through her newsletter and blog FabFitFun, her involvement with Trop50 and her passion for the organization Dress for Success, a non-profit that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development assistance to low-income women.
GIULIANA RANCIC: How are you?
RANDI ZUCKER: I’m well, Giuliana, how are you?
GIULIANA RANCIC: Very good, having fun.
RANDI ZUCKER: Now Giuliana, healthy living is obviously a really important part of your life. And how does Trop 50 fit into that?
GIULIANA RANCIC: Well, they approached a couple years ago because they knew that I always give people advice on what skinny snacks to eat and what healthy drinks to have. So I loved everything they were about. Trop 50′s 50% less sugar and calories, no artificial sweeteners, and I think a lot of people are little– especially women– feel like, oh my god, juice has so much sugar. And it kind of does. And so that’s what’s so great about Trop 50 is there’s really not a lot of sugar in it at all. And it’s delicious and super refreshing. I’ve been drinking it all day.
RANDI ZUCKER: Love it. What I also love is how Trop 50 gives back. They’re involved with Dress for Success. It’s an organization you’re also passionate about.
GIULIANA RANCIC: That’s right. I think that’s how we all got involved, actually, is I was first involved with Dress for Success, which basically provides job resources to underprivileged women. And even better, they give them attire for that first interview and the first little while that they’re starting at this new company, like the first several weeks or months, whatever it is depending on the woman’s situation. And it’s just a terrific organization. And I love that Trop 50 is a partner and gives so much to Dress for Success and supports them. So I think that was definitely part of the appeal, as well, to get involved with Trop 50.
RANDI ZUCKER: So we’re at blogher.com where 3,600 attendees are here who have blogs. You just launched a website, fabfitfun.com.
GIULIANA RANCIC: That’s right. People would tweet me all the time and say, what should I drink or what should I eat after the gym or before the gym? And give me some advice. And so it’s all about diet fitness nutrition, it’s about just living a healthy life. So every single day, we send you a free email newsletter. It’s right from me, and I tell you kind of the topic of the day and I give you some tips for that day. And it’s been huge. We’ve gotten a lot of a great response.
RANDI ZUCKER: fabfitfun.com. I’m going to sign up for it if you promise I can get tips on how to have your glow in your hair.
GIULIANA RANCIC: It’s all in there. We even have a day a week, it’s called Ask G. So write in, ask me your question, and I’ll get right back to you.
RANDI ZUCKER: Fantastic. Thank you so much, Giuliana. Thank you for joining me at BlogHer.
GIULIANA RANCIC: Thank you.
