A PERFECT NIGHTMARE

My Glittering Marriage and How It Almost Cost Me My Life

KAREN GOSBEE

Karen Gosbee had it all: a successful husband, two beautiful children, the homes, the cars, the jewelry, the A-list invitations. Her life looked perfect and as her husband, George, liked to say, appearances are everything. But at the height of his success as an owner of a major American sports franchise, cracks appeared in George’s carefully constructed façade. Karen could not ignore his increasingly erratic and self-destructive behavior, which spiraled from affairs and hard-drinking to prostitutes and drug abuse. Nor could she escape his abuse as emotional bullying escalated into dangerous beatings. A Perfect Nightmare is the story of a woman’s awakening to the realities of her failing marriage and her desperate struggle—one that would end in headlines and tragedy—to bring herself and her children to safety.

KAREN GOSBEE is a Mental Health Advocate whose real life experiences has fuelled a personal commitment to improving the quality of life for those directly and indirectly affected by mental health and addiction. She is the Co-Chair of The Community Action on Mental Health and Addiction Stewardship Group.
