Roxy Jacenko shares how she will spend the money received for her 60 Minutes interview.

Last night, PR mogul and one-time reality TV star Roxy Jacenko was the subject of a revealing segment on 60 Minutes.

The in-depth interview, helmed by journalist Allison Langdon, covered everything from Jacenko’s recent cancer diagnosis and surgery to her husband’s imprisonment for insider trading and how their two children are coping with it all.

It was uncomfortable viewing at times, with Langdon challenging Jacenko on her preoccupation with image, her decision not to have a full mastectomy as recommended by doctors, her famous work ethic, and even the timing of her cancer diagnosis.

And, as with anything Roxy related, the response on social media has been mixed. However, Jacenko has had the final word since the segment went to air.

On Instagram, the Sweaty Betty PR founder shared a message of thanks to the 60 Minutes team, and shared her plans for the money she was paid for the interview.

According to her caption, Channel Nine had agreed to donate the full amount to three charities close to her heart: Breast Cancer Network Australia, Ovarian Cancer Australia, and The Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Trials Group.

In another Instagram post, Jacenko allowed an “rather fitting” Instagram quote to express herself — and in this case, it seems inspirational quotes really can say it all.

Not one for an Insta quote but this is rather fitting right now.

Jacenko also posted a photo of herself with her two children, Pixie and Hunter, seemingly watching the interview at home.

In the Jacenko-Curtis household, it appears Magnums are the TV viewing snack of choice.

No popcorn here. We prefer #magnums ????
