Kelly Brannigan: Model

My NativeAdVantage:


Kelly Brannigan is a model.

What do I do best?

What can I say I do best? I’m not great at giving myself compliments. I am a Chef, so I guess I’d say I’m a good cook. I’m good at keeping a clean warm home, and I’m a mothering type. So, I guess all in all I’m “best” at giving. Making people feel comfortable, and happy.

What makes me the best version of myself?

I’ve actually had to learn this one in time. I have finally reached the conclusion that, you can never love or be loved until you love yourself. I think I’m the best version now because I finally have self worth. I pride myself on being loyal, honest, and good energy. I can give that to others in return, and that’s when I feel my best.

What are my aspirations?

At this point in my life I have been and done so many things I never believed possible. I have become a Chef. I was the number one television show in the country. I worked as a Esthetician, and last year had a main role in an amazing feature film! My life has been a Movie. So, turning 35 this month has made me think of the next step.

Maybe, finding MR. Right and having a child. I think I would be a great wife and mother.

But.. if that isn’t in my cards, I’d love to continue doing film.

My Biggest Success?

My biggest accomplishment work wise would be Deal or no Deal. It was many years and felt like dream. NBC was great. I miss all the ladies.

But, also I’d say.. being in a relationship with one amazing guy from the age of 24-31. Sadly it ended, but in LA an 8 year relationship is not a easy thing to do. We stayed away from the Lifestyle, And we respected and loved each other till the end.

My Most Challenging Moment?

Unfortunately, in my life I have had many challenges. I did grow up easy by any means. I learned not to live in the past, because everyone is faced with hardship.

I would say my fathers death when I was 10, and then being taken away from my mother and moved to New York. 

My Motto?

I wouldn’t say I have a “motto” But I do like

Treat me good, I’ll treat you better

My Favorite People/Role Models?

I don’t actually have a Role model. I have many favorite people. Someone I respect more then anyone is my fathers best friend Bill. He became like a father to me, and he has never failed me. He has no children of his own, but he has the kindest soul, and he would have made the Best father!

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

This is a hard one! I have been to a few places that have left a huge impact on me. Paris, Prague, Rome, but I recently went to a little place in Spain called Mallorca.

Mallorca and I definitely have a love affair going on.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

My favorite personal object I actually bought myself is a emerald ring from the 1920s

I always have it on. But my dogs are my favorite anything in life period.

My Current Passions?

My passion lately has been traveling. But, again my dogs, and animals in general are my favorite thing in life...

Besides good food and wine ;)
