It makes complete sense that Carmen Electra was a Playboy cover girl and a pictorial model. She embodies the spitfire energy, lifestyle and work ethic that Playboy women radiate. Want to catch up with Carmen in 2020 and beyond? Check out her social media pages for the latest Electra news. Now let's commemorate Carmen's Playboy era by revisiting her spectacular nude pictorials in May 1996 and June 1997. They feature Electra hot and naked with a guitar. More pics spotlight Carmen topless arching her back on a chair under a spray of water and very sexy Electra leaning forward, eyes closed, boobs at attention. But truthfully, Carmen on the page is just a teaser for the trailblazing woman in real life. Carmen’s lifestyle is unapologetically similar to Playboy’s founder. She’s has loved deeply and passionately with some of the world’s most fascinating men. Her real name is Tara Leigh Patrick but she was christened her showbiz name by none other than Prince, who she was romantically involved with and who produced her self-titled album in 1993. After a dalliance with 90s rocker Fred Durst, Electra’s electric romance and one-year marriage to basketball’s flamboyant The Worm Dennis Rodman sent shockwaves everywhere from the mainstream press to the tabloids. Carmen found her way back to music world love when she married Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction. “Dave had ended a four year-relationship and was single for about a year so it was good timing. We have had such similar experiences. I think we’re really lucky to have each other,” Electra says of her then fiancé Navarro. “ Dave and I have great communication and don’t act out. We talk about our problems and it’s beautiful. That has changed my life because there are no insecurities.” It was good love affair the marriage lasted four years. Carmen kept the music going and hit a power chord with her burlesque musical revue, the Pussycat Dolls. She’s received rave reviews and the group’s lead singer and dancer. “We’re working on putting together a tour and recording a CD,” Electra said of her stint with the revue. “Even though it’s a burlesque, I feel like we’re a rock band.” For a while Carmen’s incarnation of the Pussycat Dolls was All-Star Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera and Charlize Theron donned the corset, garter belts and loads of lace to join Carmen on stage. Electra’s movies and TV shows display her hardworking grind in the business. Her film roles include Good Burger, Starsky & Hutch, Searching For Bobby D, Cheaper By The Dozen 2, Scary Movie, Christmas Vacation 2000 and Disaster Movie. But her TV show game is even more boss her numerous appearances include Alone Together, Jane the Virgin, 90210 (reboot), Reno 911, House, Summerland, The Simpsons, Just Shoot Me Baywatch, Baywatch Nights and Baywatch Hawaiian Wedding. Carmen even put in stints in reality TV as judges on the shows Britain’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance. In 2020, Carmen was featured in the Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, where she recounted her relationship with Rodman. Electra is keeping busy as ever in 2021 she made a splash revisiting her Baywatch era by modeling swimsuits in hot pics on Instagram. For the caption of one of the pictures, Carmen re-quotes another Playboy icon, Marilyn Monroe. It read, “If I’d observed the rules I’d never have got anywhere.” Aren't we lucky Carmen Electra is an unapologetic rule-breaker?
