Carmen Electra, the blonde bombshell who rose to fame with her saucy pictures in Playboy magazine, was born as Tara Leigh Patrick. With an exotic skin tone, azure blue eyes and an amazing figure, she always knew she was meant for stardom. Her parents were also into entertainment, so it’s no surprise that the lady chose to follow in their footsteps. She began her professional career as a dancer and singer before moving on to television. She took up her stage name Carmen Electra at the beginning of her singing career, which was meant to be quite short-lived. An opportunity to appear in an issue of Playboy magazine changed her fortunes forever. Her new found popularity as a beauty with a gorgeous figure led to offers from the highly popular television show ‘Baywatch’ in which she played the role of lifeguard Lani McKenzie. One television appearance led to another and soon she was chosen to host the game show, ‘Singled Out’ on MTV. Film offers also began to pour in and she made her big screen debut with ‘American Vampire’, followed by movies like ‘Scary movie’, ‘Dirty Love’ and ‘Epic movie’. She has also appeared in cameo roles in many television series and as a character in a video game.
