“It’s been a tough time personally for me recently,” she said, adding, “It’s just so painful”.
When the show was originally filmed (back in April), Nadia was still with her husband. He was in the front row, cheering her on. But following allegations of the former Geelong AFL player’s affair with UK-based Australian socialite Lauren Mand, they have since ended their five-year marriage and Jimmy was edited out of the episode.
Speaking of the show and what it meant to be involved, Nadia said, “I'm hoping with Ladies' Night it will give me more confidence. Obviously we're there for the cause, but I think it will be great for me to put myself out there, doing something that is definitely totally out of my comfort zone. I think it will give me a whole new load of confidence.”
The one-night-only show challenged eight women to strip off naked to raise awareness for breast cancer. Nadia was joined by Georgie Parker, Simone Callahan, Lisa Curry, Casey Donovan, Ella Hooper, Rachael Finch and Lynne McGranger.
When discussing her reasons for going on the show with The Morning Show, Nadia said, "All of us know someone personally that's been touched by breast cancer. I thought it was so key to get the message out there.”
“So if someone is sitting at home and watching, hopefully, it triggers them to go and get themselves checked."
