Rancic likes being part of power couple

NEW YORK — Bill Rancic embraces the notion of being part of a power couple with wife Giuliana. Both together and separately they have pretty busy careers, made exponentially more intense with the arrival of their son, Edward Duke, last year.

You may remember Rancic from winning the inaugural season of the NBC reality show “The Apprentice.” As the only one to not hear Donald Trump utter his trademark phrase, “You’re fired,” Rancic went on to work for the real estate mogul.

These days the couple remains busy with Giuliana hosting E! News, being part of the “Fashion Police” crew, and having her own fashion line, “G by Giuliana Rancic.” Together they have a reality show “Giuliana & Bill” on the Style Network and are in the restaurant business.

And if that’s not enough, he’s moderating a competition for small business owners sponsored by the software maker Intuit where one business wins a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl.

Recently, the 42-year-old television personality sat down with The Associated Press to talk about family, business and the power of a Super Bowl ad.

AP: You and Giuliana lead busy lives. How do you kick back?

Rancic: We run a lot. We exercise and now we have a little boy at home so I’m now a father so that’s my new role, that’s my new job and it’s the best job I’ve ever had in my life. It’s pretty amazing. He’s 11 months yesterday. He’s crawling and 25 pounds. He’s a big kid. We just started filming another season of “Giuliana & Bill” so we will have 85 episodes completed by the end of the year this year which in reality TV that’s like dog years. These things don’t last that long typically.
