“Tanya Rowe appeared to live a very extravagant lifestyle, it was a lifestyle that she couldn’t sustain. he claimed that she was a designer for Heston Blumenthal, which wasn’t true and, more unforgivably, she also told people that she was dying of cancer, which also wasn’t true. She is a devious woman who has affected so many people’s lives.”
