Between 1989 and 1996 and 1997 and 2001, Nadja and Dieter Bohlen had intermittent relationships.
She participated in two photo assignments for Playboy magazine in 1999, furthering her rise to fame. She hosted the erotic programme “Peep!” on RTL II from 1999 to 2000.
In the early 2000s, Nadja Abd el Farrag began writing and publishing. She first published a cookbook in 2002, then her autobiography “Ungelogen” in 2003.

In order to have some portions from the book removed, Bernadotte filed a lawsuit. In 2004, Nadja took part in “Ich bin ein Star – Holt mich hier raus!” the second season of the German adaptation of “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” In 2005, she also made an appearance as a guest on Big Brother Germany.
