Giuliana Rancic has insisted that battling cancer has not changed her as a person.

The Fashion Police star was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2011 and later underwent a double mastectomy to eradicate the illness and reduce the chances of its return.

In a new interview with Glamour, Rancic expressed her frustration at returning to work following her surgery, where her colleagues were unsure how to react to the illness.

"I'll be totally honest. While I was recovering, I was thinking, 'I'm really going to be asking people what they're wearing?' I didn't know if I could find the joy in it again. But it didn't take long," she recalled.

"It was like, 'Hey, guys, cut the bulls**t. I'm the exact same person I was before. I'm still shallow, I still love clothes, I still want to talk fashion and I still want to gossip, so lay it on me'. They were like, 'Thank God'."

Rancic went on to say that she is grateful to have a public platform from which to share her experience with others, adding: "When I got my job at E!, I was the 39th person who auditioned. I wasn't the prettiest, I wasn't the smartest, I wasn't the most talented. And I always wondered why I got the job.

"Now I think God knew I wouldn't be a selfish little cow with this platform, and I'd actually try to do something good with it."
