Jessica Rowe is a mum of two small girls, author, television host, crazy cat lady and a terrible cook!
The crap housewife is a badge she wears with pride, and it's a title she wants other women to embrace. For Jessica, the idea of 'crap' is the real life messes, hiccups, disasters and bad meals that many of us dish up and deal with every day. This mum is tired of the photos of perfectly packed school lunches, posts about cuisine family dinners eaten together over the table, plus tales of neat, tidy and obedient children with smoothly brushed hair. Why not cut the crap, take the pressure off and admit to the moments, days, weeks and months when the wheels do fall off?
You can watch Jessica from 8.30am each day on Network Ten's morning chat show Studio 10 and read her weekly column Dear Jess in the Sunday Life magazine.
Her recent book is the bestselling 'Is This My Beautiful Life?', an honest and raw account of balancing motherhood with mental illness, career and family. She is passionate about advocating for better mental health awareness and support for new mums.
Jessica is a notorious over-sharer, much to her husband's frequent horror and her daughters' embarrassment.
