Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra

Carmen ElectraCarmen Electra (born April 20, 1972) is an American model, television personality, actress and singer, born in Cincinnati, Ohio, as Tara Leigh Patrick to a family of Irish, German, and Native American descent. (She is not related to adult film actress Tera Patrick, born Linda Hopkins Shapiro.) She attended Princeton High School for four years in the suburbs of Cincinnati.

Career highlights
Before moving to Los Angeles (1991) she lived in Minneapolis, MN and worked for Target Corporation. After moving to California she met singer Prince (a Minneapolis native), who persuaded her to change her name to Carmen Electra. Soon after, she signed a recording contract with Paisley Park Records, Prince's company, marking the start of a short-lived and unsuccessful singing career.

In 1995, Carmen Electra started appearing in various television programs. Then in May of 1996 she appeared in Playboy magazine. This led to an increasing role as a television personality on various shows, including regular roles on Baywatch and MTV's Singled Out.

Electra has appeared in several films, such as Good Burger (1997), The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (1999), the horror spoof Scary Movie (2000), and the remake of the 1970s TV show Starsky & Hutch (2004). She also regularly performed with the exotic dance troupe The Pussycat Dolls.

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra achieved considerable notoriety during her on-again, off-again marriage to basketball star Dennis Rodman from 1998 to 1999. Carmen Electra's current husband, musician Dave Navarro, was formerly the lead guitarist of the rock bands Jane's Addiction and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The couple documented their courtship and marriage on an MTV reality show in 2004 entitled Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave.
