Biography for Carmen Electra
Tara Leigh Patrick (born Apr. 20, 1972 (39 years ago)), professionally known as Carmen Electra, is an American glamour model, actress, TV personality and dancer. She gained fame for her appearances in Playboy magazine, on the MTV game show Singled Out, on the TV series Baywatch, and Summerland, for her appearances dancing with the Pussycat Dolls (11 walls) and has since had roles in the parody movies Scary Movie, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans (4 walls), and Disaster Movie.

Early years
Patrick was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, the daughter of Patricia, a singer, and Harry, an entertainer and guitarist. She attended Ann Weigel Elementary School and then studied dance at Dance Artists dance studio under Gloria J. Simpson, in Western Hills, a neighborhood of Cincinnati. Her mother died of a brain tumor in 1998 (13 years ago). Her older sister Debbie died from a heart attack, also in 1998 (13 years ago). Carmen graduated from Princeton High School in Sharonville. She has Irish, German, and Cherokee ancestry.

Patrick started her professional career in 1990 (21 years ago) as a dancer at Kings Island theme park in Mason, Ohio in the show "It’s Magic", one of more popular shows in the park's history.
She moved to California in 1994 (17 years ago), where she met Prince while auditioning for an all-girl rap group. Prince persuaded her to change her name to Carmen Electra and record a solo album. Soon after, she signed a recording contract with Prince's company Paisley Park Records, marking the start of a short-lived singing career.
In 1995 (16 years ago), Electra started appearing in TV programs. In May 1996 (15 years ago) she was featured in a nude pictorial in Playboy magazine, the first of several. This exposure led to higher profile TV appearances, including Baywatch (cast member from 1997-1998, as Leilani "Lani" McKenzie) and MTV's Singled Out. She returned to Baywatch for the 2003 (8 years ago) reunion movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.
Electra was featured in Playboy four more times, with her second appearance in Jun. 1997 (14 years ago), third in dec. 2000 (11 years ago), fourth in Apr. 2003 (8 years ago) and her fifth in the Jan. 2009 (2 years ago) anniversary issue. She subsequently was on the cover three times, in dec. 2000 (11 years ago), Apr. 2003 (8 years ago) and on the 55th anniversary Issue in Jan. 2009 (2 years ago). In the Playboy Cyber Club, she was the first woman invited to be a celebrity guest photographer; she chose Playmate Jennifer Walcott (8 walls) as her subject model.
