On tonight’s episode of “Giuliana & Bill,” this celebrity couple who have weathered their share of bumps along the highway of love, now have the reward of a beautiful son named Edward Duke Rancic.
As the episode opens, the Rancics are in Chicago at an amusement park with Bill’s sister Karen and her son Noah. Bill wants him to grow up without becoming afraid of certain things. Bill and his sister ride a very high roller coaster and Giuliana prefers to take the lesser of the scary rides and arcade games. She has some pitching arm and manages to win giant stuffed animals while the daredevils prefer to ride the death-defying rides.
While in Chicago, Bill gets to meet with the builders as the house is completely gutted as they go over their ideas and how the finished product will start to come to fruition.
In Los Angeles, Giuliana wants to design her gown for the Miss U.S.A. pageant. She will be wearing three different gowns and after eleven years on the red carpet, she has worn fifty-five couture gowns and now wants one with her name on it. She calls Olivier from Tiger J to help her out.
Bill is going over the security and sound system in the house, and has plans for a place where Duke will do his homework and hopefully, his little sister will study there too.
When Giuliana proposes her “G by Giuliana” gown idea to Olivier, he is thrilled and happy to oblige. Then he finds out that he has a week to complete the dress before Giuliana goes to Las Vegas for the pageant. Now they have to go fabric shopping. The head right to the silks and after much deliberation, they settle on a beautiful pink, and they purchase the last four yards. When Giuliana goes to see the dress, it is pretty, but needs some tweaking. Ella, the seamstress did a great job and has all the confidence that it will be ready in time for the pageant.
At home, Bill is in the pool with Duke and while Giuliana is at the pageant, he plans to take Duke to Karen’s lake house in Michigan and get Duke accustomed to some sports. Bill stops in Chicago again to meet with the builders and tells them he is taking Duke tubing on the lake.
In Vegas, Giuliana is with her girls, and they are having a fun time. She tells them how much she is afraid of, while Bill wants to make Duke a little daredevil. Giuliana announces that she will do something that she would never have thought to do, just to try to overcome her fear.
In rehearsals for the pageant, G stops to call Bill and finds out that they are about to go tubing. Now she has another thing to worry about. Bill had a great time with Duke, and he was none the worse for wear. Now Bill knows that Duke will not grow up to be a wimp like his mother.
On stage, Giuliana has three minutes to change into her pink creation. She makes it onto the stage with the dress that looks awesome, and it was a hit on social media.
Back in Chicago, she is with Bill outside the Willis Tower, where they have a Skydeck ledge that it totally enclosed, but to walk on it, one gets the feeling of being suspended in air with the clear floor, sides and ceiling. As Giuliana faces her fears, she scares Duke who starts to cry, but she overcomes her fear and goes out there more than once on this episode of “Giuliana & Bill.”
