Quotes (3)

  • Gretel: (on educating her children) Every day my children learn something that makes them more capable to own their own lives and freedoms. Sometimes these lessons are learnt through school, other times around the kitchen table.

  • Gretel: (following her departure from "Big Brother") They are good people doing the show and I want to be supportive to them. And I love the anonymity. To have that freedom back has allowed me to kind of forget what it is like to live in that television world.

  • Gretel: (revealing she hasn't any regrets about leaving Big Brother, and commenting on the reports of poor ratings) I think it's much better not to have seen it. I wouldn't want to say its time has come or gone because it's not fair to the people who are doing it. I think people can sometimes exaggerate where the ratings are. I was ready to go, I'd done it for seven years.
