Tom Gleeson Skewers PR Queen Roxy Jacenko In Stinging ‘Hard Chat’

Few things were off limits in last night’s episode of Hard Chat as PR queen and publicist, Roxy Jacenko, submitted to the biting probes of host Tom Gleeson.

Gleeson kicked it off perfectly when he asked the shameless self-promoter, “Who are you?” To which Jacenko responded: “Just a simple, blonde PR girl.”

“I must admit, before this, I hadn’t heard of you, and you’re a publicist, so is that your fault?” Gleeson fired back.

Gleeson then described Jacenko’s PR firm, Sweaty Betty, as sounding like “a tuck-shop worker on a hot day”.

Even Jacenko’s husband, Oliver Curtis, didn’t escape scrutiny. Curtis was famously jailed for 12 months for insider trading in 2016.

“Now, your husband went to jail for insider trading, do you have any stock market tips?” Gleeson asked, to which Jacenko replied: “No, I don’t buy shares.”
