Zaetta was born to an Italian father and an Australian mother, and is the granddaughter of amateur botanist James Howard Browne. She spent the earlier years of her life living in Merbein, Victoria. There, her family interests were in a local brick manufacturing business.
On 1 August 2008, Zaetta was confirmed by the Geelong Advertiser to co-star in a planned feature film to be shot entirely in Geelong called The Ninja. The film was slated to start shooting in 2010, with a cast including Rob Baard, John Schneider, Roger Cross, John Wesley Shipp and Jeremy Kewley.
In April 2010, Zaetta commenced filming on the Sunshine Coast for a movie called Just Like U. In May 2011, Sydney-based author, Amanda Cole, issued Who Needs Prince Charming?, a self-realisation book for women, which collated contributions from 35 Australian women including Zaetta, Bianca Dye, Camilla Franks, Kathryn Eisman, Molly Contogeorge and Cindy Pan.
Zaetta's fourth film Mr. White Mr. Black was released worldwide in 2008. The character saw her as a Charlie's Angels-style action girl in pursuit of stolen diamonds while being chased by criminals. This required her to learn fight sequences and perform wire work to display flying somersaults and mid-air kickboxing manoeuvres.
Health & Fitness
Zaetta has released an online program aimed at building a better body through Pilates training.
Charity, Peace for the Children
Zaetta co-founded a charity, Peace for the Children, with Grant Hilton. The Office of Fair Trading launched an investigation in March 2011 after it was revealed 'Peace for the Children' was not a registered charity, and audit of the charity by 'IPS Audit' showed it had directed less than a quarter of its income towards charitable projects, with the majority of the donations being used to cover costs. On 7 June Tania was cleared of the allegations she collected donations through her unregistered charity, Peace for the Children.
Australian Defence Force tour controversy
Zaetta toured Australian Defence Force bases in Afghanistan and Iraq during early 2008 with a group of entertainers including 12 members of the Royal Australian Navy's band, Angry Anderson, The Wolverines, and others. After the tour, accusations arose in the media that Zaetta had engaged in sexual relations with one of the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR). This was quickly denied by Zaetta and members of the touring group. The following day, an unreserved apology was given by the Department of Defence. In September 2009, the dispute was settled out of court with Zaetta for an undisclosed sum.
In 2012, Zaetta appeared in Celebrity Apprentice alongside her former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff. She was the third person "fired" from the show, but was able to raise over $70,000 for charity before her departure.
