Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Giuliana: I think a guy should tell a girl he loves her first. I've heard so many stories of girls dropping the L-bomb first, and it just catches a guy off guard. He's uncomfortable. You never want to say to a guy, "I love you," and he says, "thanks." Just hold out. If you guys fall in love, he will tell you he loves you eventually.

    • Giuliana: If you meet a guy, and you take his phone number and he takes yours, and three days later he hasn't called, the truth of the matter is he probably wasn't interested in you in the first place, or he's not going to call you. So what good is it having his number? The problem is, you have a couple of glasses of wine with your friends on day three, and you find yourself calling him. You're a little unruly, and you're having a little too much fun, and then you wake up the next morning and you regret it. You can't believe you called him. So I think it's just dangerous. If he likes you, he will call you.

    • Giuliana: My whole life, people have been telling me that I think like a guy when it comes to dating. I was pretty carefree in relationships, and if they didn't go well, I could walk away easily. I never had my heart broken that much, because I just had a different attitude than a lot of girls did.

    • (about her favorite movies)
      Giuliana: Some of my favorite movies are Good Fellas and The Godfather - I love mafia movies (I guess that has something to do with being born in Italy and raised Italian!!!) My all time favorite is Moulin Rouge. I have seen that movie a dozen times and it gets better every time. Baz is a genius and Nicole Kidman is the epitome of beauty in that film. The Italian film Life is Beautiful was one of the most touching and sad movies I have ever seen.

  • She rocks the news.

    Giuliana Depandi rocks. She's not only working for E!, she also wrote a book. And guess what it's called? "How To Get A Guy By Thinking Like One". I read it- and it's good. it's really good. it's sweet and funny. Exactelly the thing you need after a long day at work. Something to relax. And trust me girls, you'll feel like she really understands you. But again that's not the only thing she does. We can also admire her on the red carpet- no matter what award show's going on. And she's doing it with the neccessary fun. So enjoy.moreless
