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.
Big thank you to @60minutes9 for the opportunity to respond tonight and the whole crews hard work to allow me to share my story. Also for agreeing to donate the FULL amount for the exclusive TV interview to three well deserving charities I wanted to support – Breast Cancer Network Aus, Ovarian Cancer Australia, The Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Trials Group. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
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.
