  • Quotes

    • Tania: I love everything about India. It doesn't make me homesick. And the best part is the people around. I just love them.

    • Tania: (on being voted off first on "Dancing with the Stars") People think that I`m a very competitive person and maybe when it comes to my work I am, but when it comes to things like dancing or even a tennis match I'm not.

    • Tania: (on being voted off first on "Dancing with the Stars") No one remembers who goes third, fourth or fifth, but everyone remembers who wins and who gets booted off first!

    • Tania: (on her dares in "Who Dares Wins") It never occurred to me that I would attempt as many dares as I have. I'm conquering my own personal fears every time we film. I think it helps the contestants feel at ease when they see I'm scared too. I'm not a superwoman.

    • Tania: (after allegations she had sex with Australian soldiers in the Middle East) How does a supposed document ... that I don't know about get leaked in the first place - that's a little bit concerning about the security of the country. It's complete made-up lies. I feel I am owed an apology. You [the entertainers] were never alone with any soldiers - you were in full view of everybody else all the time.

    • Tania: I think that not letting things get the better of me was often my inspiration and what really made me give everything my best shot.
