Let`s call him Sugar, he`s very sweet and he`s the coach. ... Sugar is brilliant, I`ve even told your dad. I want to be happy and very, very rich and successful and I will be.
The whole world thinks I`m a slut and a whore. That`s what I`m going to have to cope with for the rest of my life.
She is very fond of him and he still holds a candle for her. You could say that the calls were of sexual nature.
I guess some of this was brought on myself, my stupidity. I don`t know if it was naivety.
Alam initially came to the attention of the public after the revelation of her affairs with Eriksson and Palios in August 2004. the Mail on Sunday and News of the World published interviews with Alam where she was questioned about sex with Eriksson and Palios in "graphic detail", and also mentioned a relationship with Indian actor Salman Khan (which he firmly denied). Alam was paid £200,000 for each interview.
"cocaine-fuelled lesbian sex session." claimed that Alam offered one of their reporters sex in return for £8,000.In February 2007, The News of the World It was further alleged that she boasted of a previousThe evidence included a video of Alam counting the money as well as photos of her in her underwear. When confronted by the News of the World Alam called them "nonsense". In response to the allegations she is reported to have said, "That's ridiculous. I'm insulted, I`ve not met anyone this week."
A few days later, The Sun reported that Alam had checked into The Priory rehabilitation clinic, feeling, it was said, that "no one will touch her with a barge pole, now".
In an interview with the Eastern Eye paper on 17 August 2007, Faria said she was now based in the USA and South America and is planning on launching a sports label in the next couple of years. "I am blissfully unaware of what takes place in the UK press nowadays and rather more concerned with what's happening in war torn Iraq and how they will become a democracy"
In January 2006, Alam appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. During her time on Big Brother she was perceived to have flirted with former NBA star Dennis Rodman. On 17 January 2006, while up for the public vote, she commented that the British public would "never let a black or Asian win" the show on the basis that the British establishment and/or media would not permit it (Indian actress Shilpa Shetty went on to win the 2007 series a year later). On 18 January 2006, she became the second housemate to be evicted, though many observers were at pains to stress that this had nothing to do with her ethnicity, and more to do with her unprecedented levels of unpopularity due to her personality and opinions.
In 2006, Faria got a role in Britflick Cash and Curry playing a hitwoman. In an interview she said of the role: "It was a role that presented itself to me and I took it on as one of life`s experiences".
