Em Rusciano describes herself as a “comedian, singer, writer, TV and radio presenter, MC, mother of two, and fancy lady,” but after her appearance on Monday’s episode of The Project, she can definitely add “professional advice-giver” to that list.
The 37-year-old was discussing her new book Try Hard when Carrie Bickmore asked about one section in particular.
“You’ve written a ‘Just in case of death’ letter in this book,” Bickmore said, referring to a part of the book aimed specifically at Rusciano’s daughters Marchella, 15, and Odette, 9.
“What is that, and have they read it?”
Rusciano explained, “Every time I go away, I don’t know if other parents do this… I’m worried I have so much wisdom to impart on them, like no one can wear white pants, don’t have plastic bra straps… so I write them a letter.”
"Then I thought, if I could put them in a book, I could put them in there, and if something happens to me [I could give it to them]."
Bickmore laughed, conceding that she doesn't write those types of letters. But for Rusciano, it's more about having the opportunity to impart very valuable advice.
