Giuliana Rancic on the time she was dumped for a Spice Girl.

Long live Jerriana.

Giuliana Rancic is pulling a Taylor Swift and scorning her ex-boyfriends in writing.

Yep. The 40-year-old E! host’s book ‘Going Off Script’ and it’s been reported that some ex boyfriends (*cough* Jerry O’Connell *cough*) might be mentioned.

Forty-one-year-old O’Connell, famous for having one of those recognizable faces from that movie you can’t remember the name of, dated Rancic back when her last name was still DePandi.

Jerry and Giuliana were once one of the biggest couples in Hollywood. (Think Brad and Jen, Bert and Ernie.) But everything changed when O’Connell reportedly broke up with Rancic for a Spice Girl.

“I was being two-timed for one of the lesser Spices?” Rancic writes in her book.


Rancic writes that O’Connell’s reaction “had as much emotion as the customer-service representative who tells you your bags missed the flight.”

“‘Yeah, I know. I’m so sorry. I don’t know what happened,'” Rancic says he told her.

They got back together. (Isn’t that always the way?)

Then Rancic writes that she and O’Connell were at a party when O’Connell allegedly did Things You Shouldn’t Do When You’re In A Relationship again, this time with the woman who would later became his wife.

“Little did I know he was in the VIP area, talking up Rebecca,” Rancic writes.

“As a prelude to feeling up Rebecca.”

Luckily for everyone involved, Rancic met her now-husband and contender for world’s best man, Bill Rancic, not long after.

And here’s a gallery of all the things Jerry O’Connell missed out on by being a dick.
