Former Perth radio presenter Em Rusciano has revealed her marriage is over.
The former 92.9 breakfast host, who worked alongside Michael "Wippa" Wipfli, announced today that she had split with her husband, Scott, with whom she has two children.
"I wanted to keep this private, I wanted to protect my children and my heart but I am a public person of sorts and I wanted to be in control of how people found out what has happened recently in my life. You see, my marriage is over," Rusciano wrote in a blog on the Mama Mia women's website this afternoon.
"I don't particularly want to go into details. It's truly no one's fault and I still love my husband but we bring out the very worst in each other.
"It has been that way for many years, this separation has been a long time coming.
"My children truly are my main priority, so far they have been bloody spectacular. My eldest in particular, she hops into bed with me each night as she knows I don't sleep well on my own.
"They know that their dad and I love them and that they can see either of us whenever they want and they can also see and feel the calm that had set upon the house now that my husband and I are apart."
Now based in Melbourne, Rusciano, a former Australian Idol finalist, has been flooded with support since she made the announcement.
Performer and co-host of Nine's morning show, David Campbell, tweeted: "A brutally honest, brave and sad article from Em on @Mamamia @EmRusciano. Much love to you Em x” (sic)."
