Jessica Rowe’s mental health fears grew last month after her podcast interview with Pauline Hanson was removed due to fierce reactions on social media.

But the former Studio 10 host, 51, brushed aside her recent controversy on Thursday as she enjoyed a pampering session at a skin care clinic in Bondi.

Jessica looked relaxed as she emerged from celebrity facialist Ingrid Seaburn’s studio, even smiling at onlookers from behind her cat-print facemask.

The journalist showed her quirky fashion sense in a bright blue sweater and matching crocodile leather booties.

She completed her look with a light blue patterned skirt, a leopard print handbag and a perfectly polished set of neon orange nails.

As she stepped out of the clinic, Jessica hugged a woman—presumably a beautician—in the doorway.

It’s the first time since Jessica has been spotted following her podcast saga late last month.

At the time, Jessica faced fierce opposition for interviewing far-right One Nation politician Pauline Hanson on her podcast.

Hanson had appeared on Jessica’s LiSTNR podcast – a platform hosted by the media company Southern Cross Austereo – to discuss her time in prison for election fraud in 2003, her children, and other light-hearted topics such as her favorite drink.

Rowe promoted the podcast on social media while Hanson talked about “love, raising children, and why she continues.”

But the episode quickly backfired on Twitter, with Australian of the Year accusing Grace Tame Rowe of “subtly turning on,” “normalizing,” and “appreciating” Hanson.

Rowe later asked LiSTNR to “delete the interview with Pauline Hanson.”

Backlash: Rowe promoted the podcast on social media while Hanson talked about “love, raising kids and why she keeps going.” But the episode quickly backfired on Twitter, with Australian of the Year accusing Grace Tame Rowe of “subtly enabling,” “normalizing,” and “valorizing” Hanson.

Southern Cross Austereo’s chief content officer Dave Cameron later said he didn’t hesitate to shoot a controversial episode after his conversation with the veteran journalist made him concerned about her well-being.

“That was a conversation that lasted until late in the evening yesterday [Wednesday] and, to be honest, we really support Jess [and] of what she wanted to do and how she wanted to go with what unfolded yesterday,” Mr Cameron said the Australian.

Hanson has since taken action against Southern Cross Austereo, advising the company that it has taken down One Nation’s expensive TV campaign from the network.

The party planned to pay for a series of ads on the company’s regional channels to promote Hanson ahead of next year’s federal election.
