LOS ANGELES - January 6, 2012 - On the heels of its most watched season ever, The Style Network's hit series "Giuliana & Bill," returns for a fifth season as they face their toughest challenge yet -- Giuliana's breast cancer. As they have done with all of life's obstacles, the couple continues their vow -- 'in sickness and in health' -- to stand together. Viewers will get an intimate look into Giuliana's journey as she returns to work, leaving Bill to find balance with their new houseguests -- Giuliana's parents, Anna and Eduardo. Additionally, this season will celebrate the couple's achievements, such as the opening of their restaurant RMP Italian in Chicago, which features many of Giuliana's mother's, Mamma DiPandi's, recipes and leads the couple to look for a new home in Chicago. As their immediate focus is on Giuliana's recovery, the future is always top of mind for Giuliana and Bill as they continue to dream of one day starting a family. Season five of "Giuliana & Bill" premieres on Monday, April 2 at 8pm ET/PT on Style.
"Since day one of our marriage, Bill and I have welcomed Style into our lives, from traveling with us to Italy for our wedding, to following our struggles to conceive," said Giuliana Rancic. "In 2011, we faced our scariest obstacle yet when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as we start 2012, I am focused on living in the present. Bill and I look forward to this new year of opportunity and good health and can't wait to once again share our journey with the Style viewers."
After announcing her fight against breast cancer in October 2011, Giuliana was overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from thousands of women and their families who have been touched by her personal story. As a result, Giuliana has teamed with Style to executive produce and star in a series of PSAs educating viewers on breast cancer awareness which is the latest chapter in the network's "Fight with Style" pro-social initiative set to kick-off in April.
