  • Giuliana Rancic and Vivica A. Fox were forced to skip the Emmy Awards on Sunday after they both tested positive for COVID-19
  • The pair were set co-host E!’s Live From the Red Carpet Emmys pre-show, but were forced to pull out of the virtual event due to their health 
  • Both Rancic, 46, and Fox, 50, shared the the E! show

Giuliana Rancic and Vivica A. Fox revealed they will not be participating in this year’s Emmy festivities after they tested positive for coronavirus.

Both Rancic, 46, and Fox, 50, shared the news during E!’s Live From the Red Carpet: The 2020 Emmy Awards show on Sunday.

Rancic told fans: ‘Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different.’ 


Sick day: Giuliana Rancic and Vivica A. Fox revealed they will not be participating in this year’s Emmy festivities after they tested positive for coronavirus 

As part of E! and NBCUniversal’s very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19.’

‘Now as much as I didn’t want to hear that, I’m very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I’m thankful.’

Touching on her family’s health and how they’re doing during this incredibly precarious time, the veteran red carpet host shared that all things considered her family was doing well. 

‘As far as my health, I’m doing well. My husband and our son also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care each other so I’m going to get back to doing that.’

She signed off, ‘I just want to say I’m wishing you all the best and please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care and I’ll see you on the next red carpet.’

Husband of thirteen years Bill, 49, and son Duke, eight, are all living in close quarters with the Hollywood reporter as they try and get through this challenging time as a family.

Fox was also slated to host the E! Emmy red carpet special on Sunday, but she announced during the special that she tested positive for COVID-19 as well.

‘I am terribly sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight!’ Fox, 56, said in a statement during the Emmys 2020 pre-show. 

‘Unfortunately, I have tested positive for coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution, I am isolating myself at home,’ she added.

She continued, “During these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever that we follow all safety and health rules and guidelines to protect ourselves and each other.”

Fox sent her best to Nina Parker and Brad Goreski, who ended up hosting the show.

“Congratulations to all of tonight’s nominees. I look forward to seeing everyone again soon,” s

 Unfortunately, Giuliana is no stranger when it comes to health scares. 

Only nine years ago, in 2011, she announced on Today that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was going to undergo a double mastectomy after struggling with infertility. 

Thankfully five year later she was diagnosed cancer free and has continued to live a healthy life, keeping wellness a top priority.    

As the host has been gearing up for red carpet season, it seems as if this one will have to wait until next year.  

Boys: Giuliana’s husband Bill and eight-year-old son Duke have also tested positive for the virus. The small family of three are quarantining together and are currently ‘doing well’ she reported

Health risks: This is not Giuliana’s first brush with a deadly disease. In 2011 the host revealed on Today that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and would be having a double mastectomy

 Since March a slew of red carpet regulars have tested positive for the virus including Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Mel Gibson and most recently Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Even as award shows and television & film productions have started to safely re-open with necessary precautions, there is still a looming risk over seven months later. 

With a vaccine on the rise but no end in sight people are starting to realize that things may not be back to ‘normal’ until the end of 2021 as virtual events have become the norm in entertainment. 

Because Giuliana was unable to fly in due to her positive diagnosis, Brad Goreski and Nina Parker from Nightly Pop are set to take over the hosting duties.   

Entrepreneur: In addition to being a red carpet host, Giuliana also has her own line of Prosseco and a clothing brand G By Giuliana
