Keri's Couch: 'An elephant in my kitchen'

Keri's Couch: 'An elephant in my kitchen'

This week on Keri's Couch, I got to sit down with an inspiration, to say the least. Françoise Malby-Anthony opens up about the most important things in her life.

Listen to my full interview with Francoise or read the details under the podcast.

Her energy completely fills the room. Tall, slender, and blonde with a smile that makes you smile and a French accent to top it off. Françoise Malby-Anthony is picture perfect considering she is the ‘mom’ of a menagerie of wildlife at Thula Thula (a job she was thrust in to after the sudden loss of her husband, ‘Elephant Whisperer’ Lawrence Anthony), and... she is in the middle of a book tour.

We were extremely grateful that her team had allowed her to come and chat to us.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Françoise before on her home turf at Thula Thula in Zululand, and I was captivated by her then, just as I was now.

Françoise has had to deal with things that you just cannot prepare for, but she is an absolute breath of fresh air. Nothing about her shows scars of the trials and tribulations. Well, nothing on the surface at least.

When Françoise speaks she captures the entire room; she is honest, open, and just beautiful inside and out. I am very excited to share with you this week’s ‘On The Couch’ with the author of the number one best seller, ‘An Elephant in my Kitchen’, Françoise Malby-Anthony.
