Zoe Marshall has an unconventional bedroom arrangement with her NRL star husband.

Lifestyle blogger and NRL WAG Zoe Marshall is renowned for her unapologetic honesty, and her guest appearance on Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa on Tuesday was no different.

Appearing alongside Dr. Oz during a segment on the show, Zoe revisited an aspect of her personal life that stirred up controversy last year: her sleeping arrangements with St George Illawarra star, husband Benji Marshall.

‘I’m getting a lot of judgement that my husband and I don’t sleep in the same bed,” the 31-year-old started. “And I wanted to know, do you think this is normal? Because I really love it.”

The admission came as a surprise to the celebrity doctor, who first shot to fame from his stints on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show in 2004.

“Benji’s so good looking though, why wouldn’t you want to sleep in the same bed with him?” He asked.


But Zoe hinted her marriage’s unorthodox sleeping arrangement has nothing to do with physical chemistry or sex – but a medical condition.

Husband Benji, 31, suffers from sleep apnea, which causes him to snore disruptively into the night.

While sufferers are commonly prescribed treatment masks to use throughout the night, Zoe says her husband refuses to wear them because “he thinks it’s not attractive.”

Dr. Oz detailed the troubling side effects untreated sleep apnea can cause – including high blood pressure and weight gain – but Zoe says the snoring has lead to an ideal agreement.

“I feel like I kind of don’t want to fix the snoring because I really love sleeping separately now,” she said.

We don’t blame you for enjoying the peace and quiet, Zoe!
