Radio host Jackie O has hit back at suggestions PR mogul Roxy Jacenko timed the announcement of her breast cancer diagnosis to distract from her husband’s conviction for insider trading.
A snippet released from Jacenko’s upcoming “tell-all” interview with 60 Minutes, shows her being pushed repeatedly on the topic, with reporter Allison Langdon insinuating people felt the timing was disingenuous.
“There’s a problem isn’t there, when you announce that you have breast cancer and people’s first reaction is cynicism,” Langdon said, before claiming the questions were being raised “normal people out there”.

“Seriously??? Since when do we get to choose the timing of cancer?” Jackie O captioned an Instagram post featuring a headline about the interview.
“I wouldn’t call those people normal by any means.”
