After Ryan Seacrest introduced his pal to a round of applause, Rancic, 37, got emotional. "You're going to make me cry," said Rancic, who revealed an early-stage breast cancer diagnosis on the Today Show recently.

"I've got to say, I feel great. My surgery went very well," said the reality star, who starts radiation treatment next month.

"I still do have a bit of a road ahead of me, but it's nothing I can't handle...and it's going to be good!

Holding up her arm triumphantly, she added, "You saw when I came in here, I was like, 'She's back!'"
