Fun Fact: Jackie has known her husband, Ben sine she was 15 years old
Jackie Gillies, the youngest of the Housewives, is confident, opinionated and spiritual. Married to Australian rock royalty in Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies, Jackie and Ben have recently relocated from Newcastle to Melbourne and are reveling in Melbourne’s vibrant culture and thriving in a new creative space that has inspired Ben’s second solo album and the couple’s new beverage brand endeavor – La Máscara.
Jackie is a highly in-demand professional psychic with a proven history of connecting people – including a long list of celebrities - with their soul purpose and loved ones.
Croatian-born, Jackie lives in the moment. As does husband Ben, who hasn’t wasted anytime setting up a new home studio to collaborate with Melbourne’s renowned songwriters.
A philanthropist and humanitarian, when Jackie isn’t attending or hosting a high profile event, she’s likely to be found enjoying an impromptu family dinner or cocktails and a dance with her girlfriends.
Like all our housewives and respective partners, Jackie and Ben enjoy the good things in life, including fine dining and luxury getaways. The couple own beautiful properties on both the Newcastle and Croatian coasts and like nothing more than a getaway to their holiday homes with family and friends.
Being married to Australian rock royalty has its obvious upsides but their romance is nothing short of fairytale.
Reconnecting 14 years after they had first met, these childhood sweethearts tied the knot in 2010.
And launching her ready-to-serve cocktail line La Máscara in 2013, Jackie barely has time to be a housewife at all.
