A few months ago, Ballyhoolie’s owner, Blythe Masters, announced the death of the bikini model who was widely credited with making the company famous in the 1990s.
She died in her sleep last Friday at her home in Sydney’s northern suburbs, the company confirmed.
Blythe’s death was announced on her Instagram page, which has since been taken down.
Ms Masters, who was born in the UK, became a Ballyhouse franchisee in the 1980s and became its chief executive in 2004.
Her Instagram page is no longer up, and her daughter, Shannon Masters, is now acting as a spokesperson for Bally’s parent company, Sotheby’s International Realty, which is representing the business.
Bly the Bally-esque model (Picture: Bly the GYM)A Bally brand is synonymous with a strong commitment to environmental stewardship and a culture of self-responsibility.
As a result, the brand was a favourite with children and teenagers, who loved the brand’s tagline: Bally, Bily.
Bally’s iconic bally bag has become a popular attraction for young people in recent years, and it has been a symbol of Bally housewives since the 1960s.
Bethany Gee, a Blyhouse franchise agent, told ABC Radio Australia in January that the company’s marketing was about “a woman with an extraordinary body of work”.
“It was a great product to market,” she said.
“She was the face of Blyhouses bikini brand and was a real icon of the brand.”
It’s a bit ironic because it was really the first thing they put up on the front of the balyhouse.
“We’re all about a woman with a remarkable body of works.”

“She had such a powerful impact on us as Bally Hoolies, and we will continue to be inspired by her legacy and work to ensure the world is better for her memory.”
The company said it would support Ms Masters and her family during this difficult time.
Ms Masters has been known for her unique and beautiful body of art.
