Today in The Good Girl Confessional, host Sandy Lowres is chatting with Ali Brahe-Daddo who exploded onto the Australian modelling scene at the age of 16 and became the cover girl of Dolly Magazine. Over the years Ali’s life would take her in many different directions including moving to Hollywood with her husband of 30 years, motherhood, (she has 3 children), fitness and teaching.
Her first book, QUEEN MENOPAUSE – a friendly, frank, compassionate and comprehensive companion for any woman experiencing menopause – was published in 2022 by Allen & Unwin. She also Co-hosts with her husband, actor Cameron Daddo, on their hit podcast “Separate Bathrooms”. Interviewing some of the most interesting couples in Australia, they take a look behind the closed doors of their relationships.
With her gorgeous smile and all-Australian beach body, she lit up the covers of Australia’s top fashion and pop magazines. Cleo, Dolly and Cosmopolitan, kept her face front and centre with fashion spreads and stories. It was rare that she was not on the cover every month of one of these publications, well into the 90’s. Now Alison’s daughter has just signed to a modelling agency, in her 20’s.
Alison talks opening and honestly today about her perimenopause journey, and why sharing this journey has been so important in helping other women to navigate perimanopause. She is also open about attending therapy and how a 30 year marriage requires genuine work!
This is a brilliant conversation!
