Melanie studied anthropology at Oberlin College and archaeology in Egypt but ended up not pursuing a career in either of the fields. Since 1998, Melanie has written and published three books: “A Hard-Hearted Man”, “Man Trouble”, and “Trust Me”. We wonder if any of these were written about her now-ex-husband. The timeline could work for at least one of them!
Melanie was married to Larry Ellison for seven years, and both of them serve on the board of the Ellison Medical Foundation, which aids Alzheimer’s research. Interestingly, their wedding photographer was none other than Steve Jobs! Sadly, however, the couple divorced in 2010.
