The host of the show, Jenny Jones, didn't give up on her career and became a women's health advocate. Jenny's philanthropic tendencies partially started due to her personal experieince with her body.

Struggling with self image

In early 1980s, Jenny Jones underwent a breast implant surgery after struggling with accepting her body for years.

She was raised by a tough father who had concrete understanding of what makes a woman feminine. He constantly shamed Jenny for not having a big enough cup size, which shattered her self-confidence.

My father would tell me to rub cold water on my chest in the shower to make my breasts grow. He insisted that I do certain exercises to make my breasts grow.

Young Jenny would look at the female stars of her time, including full-bodied Jayne Mansfield, and wasn't feeling complete. Unfortunately, Jones' breast enhancement surgery ended badly, as her body rejected the implants over the years.

In the mid 1990s, Jenny finally realized that big breasts don't define a woman. In 1997, she wrote an autobiography titled "Jenny Jones: My Story," the proceedings of which went to women's breast cancer research.
