Biography: Carmen Electra (born April 20, 1972) is an American model, television personality, actress and singer, born in Cincinnati, Ohio, as Tara Leigh Patrick. (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.
In 1991, Electra moved to Los Angeles and within one week met singer Prince, 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, 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.
Electra achieved considerable notoriety during her on-again, off-again marriage to basketball star Dennis Rodman from 1998 to 1999. 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.
Electra was also Punk'd with her husband Dave Navarro after they were both fooled by Ashton Kutcher during a hit and run chase.
Electra has dimensions of: Bust 90cm, Waist 54cm, Hips 86cm (35"/21"/34"). In a 2004 poll, readers of FHM magazine voted that she had the best looking bottom in show business. Fans of Jennifer Lopez might beg to differ. More so than the somewhat coy Jennifer, though, Carmen has been willing to "show it off" from time to time, such as on the cover of Esquire in a summer 2004 issue. 
Carmen tends to come across well on TV talk shows, perhaps even a little shy and modest in a normal context. This perhaps helps neutralize some of the potential for disparaging press coverage of her occasionally outrageous behavior.
