I Do, Now What?: Secrets, Stories, and Advice from a Madly-in-Love Couple
Bill and Giuliana Rancic are now the hosts of NBC’s Ready for Love, a new relationship show featuring three of America’s most eligible guys searching for their soul mates.
Five million viewers tuned in to The Style Network for Giuliana DePandi and Bill Rancic’s fairy tale wedding in Italy, as the passions, tears, and champagne flowed. But what happened once the honeymoon was over? After all, she’s been stationed in Los Angeles as one of E! Entertainment’s most popular personalities, and he’s kept his home in Chicago, where this handsome winner of The Apprentice has been busy running an empire of his own. How, we’ve wondered, is this marriage really working out?
With all the funny, frank, and characteristically down-to-earth personality that fans of their hit reality show, Giuliana & Bill, have come to adore, this glamorous couple takes you behind the scenes of their real-life marriage. Like all newlyweds, they’ve faced the big issues that wedlock manages to invite, including money (to merge or not?), household chores (she’s disorganized, he’s a neat freak), arguments (without staying mad), and trying to have a baby (it’s not as easy as they thought!). Sharing their newfound and sometimes hard-won insights, they offer suggestions on such topics as communication, giving and receiving support, trust and jealousy, quality time, friends and in-laws, fighting fair, and sex and romance.
A must-read for newly married couples, or those about to take the plunge, or anyone who wants to know the secrets of everlasting love, I Do, Now What? is an upbeat real-world resource for the most ambitious journey of a couple’s life: marriage!

I'd like to preface this with the fact that I've never really been a fan of either celebs here. I mean, I don't have anything against them, I just am not one to get wrapped up in the whole Celeb culture. However, my best friend lives and dies for this stuff, and so when she heard that Bill and Guiliana were doing a reading at Borders in Chicago, she dragged me along. Turns out, I actually enjoyed them. They are an adorable couple and seemed really in love. I skimmed the book my friend bought when we first got there- and it had a great "voice" to it and it made me laugh, so on my way out I picked up a copy for myself. I went home and read it cover to cover. I couldn't put it down. How did I get sucked in like that? Ha! They are such great writers and I love the humor and stories that they used along the way that made it such an enjoyable read. It gives you an intimate look into their lives and makes the reader feel like when they are done the book, like they know the couple and would... read more

As a newly married 30 something in today's self-centered, easily divorced society, I admire and appreciate G and B's traditional and earnest approach at marriage. This book is a candid read of real issues that all married couples face. This book had me listening and laughing to their insight and challenges but also made me think about how it can relate to my own marriage. Refreshing to hear honesty from a Hollywood couple.
Fantastic, funny, and insightful read!

I'm really surprised at ANY negative reviews of this book. I laughed from start to finish. This book truly captures Bill and Giuliana's personalities. They teach amazing and important lessons about relationships and marriages by telling anecdotes from their own experience. I related so much to so many of the things they shared in my own relationship, I've giving this to my boyfriend to read now that I'm finished with it. A fantastic book!!!
