Now That's What I Call Entertaining the Troops

Let's hear it for Bollywood actress Tania Zaetta, who apparently is doing her best to help keep up the spirits of the Australia special forces. Allegedly.

Now if we could only convince some Hollywood bimbettes to do their part for the war effort.
A Bollywood starlet who made her name going beyond the call of duty in Who Dares Wins, an Australian TV stunt show, has been accused of having sex with soldiers while on a tour to entertain troops in Afghanistan.

Tania Zaetta was named in a confidential briefing paper to Australia’s Defence Minister as having slept with special forces soldiers last month at a military base in Tarin Kowt, the capital of Oruzgan province. Pictures and a video were said to have been taken.

But Australia’s military was in retreat last night, admitting that it broke its privacy regulations by naming the actress, 37, in the confidential note intended for Joel Fitzgibbon, the Defence Minister.

The Defence Department apologised to Zaetta for the leak, and Mr Fitzgibbon said he had ordered an inquiry into how the document — officially referred to as a “hot issues brief” — became public. Zaetta, who has appeared on Baywatch and Mission Implausible, a British pay-TV show, denied the allegations and said there had been little opportunity to be alone with any soldier, even if she had wanted to be.

“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,” she said.

It’s complete lies . . . apart from being hurtful, it’s damaging to a woman’s career, to her reputation.” The Government now faces a potential compensation payout after she sought legal advice over the claims, which the document said had been made by Angry Anderson, a veteran Australian rock star and fellow tour performer.
Looks like a lawsuit is brewing.
Australian entertainer turned Bollywood starlet Tania Zaetta may sue and demand compensation for unsubstantiated allegations made in a News Limited tabloid.

The tabloid reported that Zaetta had sex with Australian soldiers while on an Armed Forces Entertainment Tour to Afghanistan.

Zaetta, who has refuted the claims as "complete made-up lies", told News Limited: "When things like this get into countries like that (India) it's not taken lightly. Sex scandals - rumoured, alleged, bad chinese whispers, whatever it is - aren't taken lightly in a country like that."
