“TV Notes” column for April 21, 2013

E! is the usual place to find Giuliana Rancic, but Sunday night the TV personality will be at LSU’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center for a talk presented by the Gamma Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma.

The 7 p.m. talk, Delta’s Gamma biennial Lectureship in Values and Ethics, is free and open to the public.

Many know Rancic from her appearances anchoring red-carpet events and “E! News” for the E! network and serving on the panel of “Fashion Police,” also on E!. In addition, she and husband Bill Rancic star in their own reality series, “Giuliana and Bill,” on Style Network, and are hosts of NBC’s new dating show, “Ready for Love.”

Rancic, 38, will speak about the values and ethics she follows in her own life that have helped her become the woman she is today, a news release said. Rancic teaches men and women to focus on the positive.

She will also talk about her struggle with breast cancer and how one can take control of his or her own health and future. Rancic underwent a double mastectomy in December 2011.

The couple’s son, Edward Duke Rancic, born through a surrogate, arrived in August 2012.

La.’s ‘monsters’

Destination America’s new series “Monsters and Mysteries in America” will feature accounts of three southern Louisiana monsters at 9 p.m. Sunday (cable Channel 102).

Louisiana natives Elizabeth Courteaux and Jebediah Hambone will recount their harrowing experiences with the Rougarou in Cut Off. Some call the creature a werewolf and others claim it is a cursed human temporarily turned into a beast.

For more than 40 years, residents on Honey Island Swamp have reported an unidentified creature prowling the area. Harlan Ford, a local pilot, shot photos of what is said to be the monster in 1963.

Vampires are infamous in New Orleans and believed capable of mesmerizing their victims with a telepathic connection.

Valerie Knesel finds out firsthand about this in another segment.

Park Slope Production Co. is looking for members of the Jarreau family (or extended family) in Pointe Coupee Parish.

The company said it wants to develop a documentary series similar to A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” also shot in Louisiana, and hopes to feature the Pointe Coupee community.

Development of the series is in its early stages, a news release said,
