Rogaine made more of my hair fall out around my hairline when I stopped using it, so be warned. Ive been using Nioxin for about a year. It doesnt cause hair fall like after Rogaine. I only use the scalp treatment and follicle booster. I have a short buzzed cut, but the Nioxin gives me a little extra fuzz around my edges, which is really all you expect from these kinds of products.

Watching those two on their 'reality show' is excruciating. Bill Rancic seems too nice for this self absorbed, odd looking, underweight woman.
One episode Giuliana was embarrassed by her old photos her mom was showing Bill, she has a huge nose!
She wants to know why she can't get pregnant on her own, let alone not miscarry even with IVF? She's severely underweight. If she was truly serious about having children, she'd start eating so she could get pregnant, then she'd be able to carry a baby!
Does Guliana EVER talk about anything but herself and how she spends money on useless shit?
What did this chick do before working for E!? I used to watch her on E! when Steve Kmetco was still there. I haven't watched E! in many years, I also watched E! while it was still called MovieTime! Anyone remember that?
Giuliana is excruciating, she seems to have no interests, she's an entitled spoiled brat going on about her "red soled" shoes. What's her family background? Middle class, wealthy, poor?
I know she was born in Italy. Her parents seem to live here, they have a huge house. What do they do, let me guess, construction? looool
When she had to move out of her LA residence into another place there, I never heard such whining in my life. Her female assistant, out in LA, handled everything, from what I saw the woman did a great job.
The movers delivered her furniture and everything else, the apartment looked large and comfortable, I'm sure by LA standards it wasn't big enough for Giuliana, by NYC standards the apartment was large.
But NO, nothing was good enough for Queen Giuliana, she called Bill up to complain...went on how "everything was a mess and I don't know where anything is..." She went on and on.
This woman is completely nuts, she is clearly the product of either an entitled upbringing or from working in showbiz too long, where every non-entitty working on the peripheries of showbiz seems to think, they too, are big stars.
Everything was in place, the apartment looked really great, WTF was her problem?
Imagine if she had to make this move like a real person, she would have had a stroke. My best female friend and her husband moved themselves from Manhattan to San Francisco, it took them THREE trips, she and her husband shared driving a huge U-Haul truck. They looked at this as an adventure, I can't imagine Mrs. Rancid do that, she wouldn't have survived.
I will never forget a live interview Steve K had from NYC, he was talking to a drunk slurring Nathan Lane, who would not stop cursing. Every other world was 'fuck', 'shit' and 'asshole'. Steve handled it as best he could, he eventually had to switch back to the studio because Nathan Lane was incoherent! I wonder how Miss Lollipop Head Giuliana would have handled it?

Her mom seems to speak with a heavy accent. I guess her dad has one too.
One of my pet peeves are immigrants who have been living in the US forever, say 20+ years or more, who make absolutely no attempt to drop their accents. My grandparents, on my dad's side, were Italian immigrants, they made sure to get rid of the accents and to read and write in English.
Actor Boris Kodjoe said in an interview many years ago, he came to the US with a heavy German accent, he knew it would limit him in pursuing an acting career, he made sure to study English. He has no trace of that German accent.

R60, you're probably one of the dumbest people to ever post on DL. You clearly have no understanding about how language works? I speak four languages, two of them (English and Italian) without an accent. If I could drop the accent on the other two languages (German and French) I would, but it's not that easy. Do you honestly think migrants hang on to the accent just to annoy you? Before you judge a situation you don't understand why don't you try walking in their shoes. Take a Spanish class and report back when you're fluent. That way we'll never have to hear from you again.

I never watch ET and rarely watch E! anymore, but I find this one hard to believe. Giuliana is very invested in E!. She got a reality show out of them, and Ryan Seacrest, like him or not, is a powerhouse at E! and he likes Giuliana a lot. Their friends.
She does Fashion Police, and her own reality show in addition to the E! "news" bullshit. So I think she's happy and making lots of money and more famous than she deserves to be.
Ryan, as an executive producer really knows his market. He develops reality shows like the Kardashian garbage, the Playboy Bunny garbage, and Giulina, and God know what else, all catering to the trailer trash crowd who love the tabloids, and he is extremely wealthy.
