Carmen Electra Biography
Tara Leigh Patrick, better known by her stage name Carmen Electra, was born in April of 1972 in Sharonville, Ohio. As a child, she studied dance at Dance Artists Studio, then later attended School for Creative and Performing Arts. Electra has stated in interviews that she knew from a young age that she wanted to dance on Broadway. She graduated from Barbizon Modeling and Acting School as well as Princeton High School.
Electra began her career in 1990, working as a dancer in a show at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. She moved to California in 1991 and met the singing artist Prince, who signed her to his Paisley Park Record company. It was here that she changed her name to Carmen Electra. She had a very short singing career, however, and in 1995, she began appearing in television shows including the very popular Baywatch and the MTV dating game show Singled Out. She has worked in numerous films as well, including Goodburger, Scary Movie, and its sequel Scary Movie 4, Meet the Spartans, and Cheaper by the Dozen. Electra has posed nude for Playboy four times and in 2005 she began the Naked Women’s Wrestling League, acting as the commissioner for the promotion of the team. Electra most recently appeared as a guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance in 2011 and in 2012 she joined Britain’s Got Talent as a guest judge.
Electra is almost as well known for her personal life as she is for her professional life. She began dating basketball star Dennis Rodman and they married soon after the death of Electra’s mother and sister in 1998. Less than 10 days later, Rodman filed for annulment claiming that he was not in his right mind when he got married. Although the couple tried to work things out, they finally agreed to get divorced in April of 1999. She married Dave Navarro, but they also divorced in 2006. Electra has a current net worth of $15 million, which may increase if she should decide to pose for Playboy for a fifth time.
