Local writer and former Married at First Sight contestant, Melissa Walsh, dishes the dirt on the realities of reality television and her life, in her new memoir.

Everybody Deserves a Disaster is the journey of a middle-aged woman who decided to transform her life before it was too late.

A witty and heartfelt account of the mistakes we all make and how to find the lessons and laughter along the way.

A neighbourhood barbecue is where Melissa’s last husband decided to announce he was leaving their marriage. She had just celebrated her 50th birthday, had a new granddaughter, and a huge mortgage since buying the house together three years earlier, when his secret life was revealed.

Losing the house, the husband, and the license, Melissa embarked on a journey to find the answer to why she keeps repeating her mistakes.

Melissa is not a stupid woman, with two university degrees, a career as a journalist, and a healthy philosophical outlook on life thanks to her father, and lots of self-help books.

How did she let this happen?

When did it get to the point that she would lose everything? And how would she pick herself up from this enough to become the strong woman who could appear on Married at First Sight?
