DSPORT: What's new since we visited with you last summer?
Alicia: Well I made Maxim's top 10 Hometown Hotties which was super exciting. I appeared in several magazines and you can also catch some glimpses of me in the most recent Fast and Furious movie.

DSPORT: Word on the street is someone has herself a '93 Nissan?
Alicia: Hell yeah, I finally found one! It's an S13 240SX hatch. I haven't done anything to it except change the oil, battery, spark plugs and wires. I've been dying to start working on my baby and take it to the track. Once I build it up I definitely would love to enter drift competitions. It's one of my biggest dreams and I've been looking for sponsors, so if anyone is interested please hit me up!

DSPORT: With all of your accomplishments, do you feel that becoming a star has gone to your head?
Alicia: Not at all, actually. Some people might think that because I don't call them as often, but truthfully I have just been so busy. It really isn't easy to have a job like this, a son and try to answer all the fans, friends and family. So I hope everyone understands, I'm still my fun and humble self.

DSPORT: What keeps you centered and grounded?
Alicia: Above all things my son and my boyfriend. They mean the world to me and keep me on a straight path to success. My son is five years old and will turn six on Sep 11th. He will be finishing up kindergarten soon and is super tall for his age. He's a total knockout, so watch out ladies. He makes me so happy and I love him more then life itself.

DSPORT: Having the tomboy spirit, do you play any sports with him?
Alicia: Of course. I play baseball with him and have been trying to teach him how to skateboard when I can. He is actually way better then me now. So I have just been sticking to the video games with him instead lately. We love playing Call Of Duty and Halo, but he hates when I kill him.

DSPORT: Aside from the tuner scene, what other kinds of work have you branched into?
Alicia: I have actually been looking into the whole acting scene again. I used to do a little bit of it back in the day. I've been going to a lot of different casting calls, so hopefully some day soon I will land a big commercial or movie.

DSPORT: Still hitting the clubs in the furry boots?
Alicia: I go-go dance once in a great while. It really isn't my scene anymore. These days I'd much rather just go out to my favorite restaurant.

DSPORT: Is your taste for foods as diversified as your ethnicity?
Alicia: Very much so. I'd eat just about anything except cow intestines and pig's feet. Barf. I eat anything I want and as much of it as I like. I have actually been trying to gain weight but nothing works. I've even tried all those weight gainers and supplements. But yes, I love food. Everyone calls me the bottomless pit.

DSPORT: Many would consider you lucky to have that sort of problem. Over the countless events you've attended, what's one of the most memorable moments?
Alicia: I would have to say when I became one of the Naughty NOS Girls. It opened the door to so many opportunities. I have also received so many huge gifts from my fans. But one of the cutest was when this guy gave his newborn daughter my middle and last name for her middle name. That made me feel so special. Never in my wildest dreams would I expect to have such a fan base that someone would use my name for their child.

DSPORT: If we get a third date, does that mean you love us?
Alicia: The question is, do you guys love ME enough to give me a third date? You guys should already know that I love ya. You guys rock!

Corissa Furr

DSPORT: It's great to see you again Corissa, how have you been over the past year and a half?
Corissa: Crazy busy! I'm never home.

DSPORT: You said in our first interview that making a career of modeling was a long shot. Think you've proven that statement false?
Corissa: Definitely, I'm now a professional model. Seeing myself in magazines, video games and DVDs was definitely surreal at first, but I've gotten used to it.

DSPORT: Speaking of working on DVDs, is it hard to understand our DVD host Andrew Hawkins' Australian accent?
Corissa: Crikey! I love his accent. I always try to talk like him. Poor Andrew, you guys give him such a hard time. It is hard to understand him sometimes, but he's awesome to work with.

DSPORT: Well you've been great in our DVDs. Have you been doing any other film work?
Corissa: I filmed a pilot for a TV show and we're waiting to see if the network picks it up. Fingers crossed! I love both film and print work but television is my passion.

DSPORT: Are you happy with your popularity or do you want to keep getting more famous?
Corissa: Of course popularity helps my career but that's not why I do what I do. I'm not really too caught up in being famous.

DSPORT: Do guys approach you more or less when you're modeling at events?
Corissa: I feel like guys hit on me more when I'm in the airport with pajamas on and no makeup. I think that's funny.

DSPORT: You've become quite the traveler. Any destination you favor over the rest?
Corissa: I do love California, but there are so many places I still haven't been to. I have yet to head overseas. I keep telling Andrew to take me to Aussie-land.

DSPORT: Has traveling also expanded your list of favorite foods?
Corissa: Yes! I think I keep getting closer to being Asian. Beef tongue is amazing! Mom's home cooking still can't be beaten though.

DSPORT: Are you still driving the Volkswagen or have you gotten your dream R33 GT-R yet?
Corissa: The VW is broken right now. And I'm still waiting to save up enough to buy that Skyline!

DSPORT: Did anyone ever get around to giving you drift lessons?
Corissa: Not yet, but I am pushing Chris Forsberg on the NOS team to teach me how to drift. Who could ask for a better teacher?

DSPORT: What else still remains on your "To-Do" list?
Corissa: I still need to travel the world and go skydiving.

DSPORT: What's it going to take to get you to move out to So Cal?
Corissa: Well, I love my small town and I can still go to big cities anytime, so I get to have the best of both worlds.

DSPORT: You mentioned that your favorite part of the DSPORT DVDs was the credits/bloopers portion. Are we going to see you in there anytime soon?
Corissa: I kind of felt left out not making the cut last time, so I even contemplated messing up on purpose. Since we did a bunch a hosting after a long shoot, I'd imagine you'll probably catch me at the end of DVD #9. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
