Carmen Electra’s Photographs

Carmen Electra was born Tara Patrick on April 20th, 1972 in the small town of White Oak, Ohio. Tara grew up in the town of Cincinnati, Ohio. Tara is of Irish and Native American descent. Her look is exotic but she is a classic beauty. She attended a special school for aspiring actors and performers in Cincinnati, the School for Creative and Performing Arts. Her friends and family knew from early on that this young, small town girl would achieve great accomplishments in the entertainment industry.Tara Patrick studied dance and theater at the School for the Creative and Performing Arts, as well as music. She did not find many leads for her performing career through the school. She did gain national recognition through a famous photo shoot in the well-known magazine, Playboy. This pictorial made her career skyrocket. Before appearing in Playboy, Carmen Electra was a musician. She was discovered by Prince while she was auditioning for an all-girl rap band. Carmen did not join the all-girl rap group, but she did sign on with Paisley Park Records. She released her self-titled debut album, Carmen Electra in 1992. Prince worked with her on many projects. She also had an affair with the pop star. Prince was the one who gave Tara Patrick the stage name Carmen Electra, which has stayed with the star to this day. Carmen’s relationship with Prince was odd. He spent little time with her, often showing up at her home in the middle of the night. Carmen said that she would dress for him and wait for him to come over all night. Often times he didn’t. The relationship gradually fizzled out, leaving Carmen heartbroken. However, her career really took off after the relationship ended.Carmen Electra’s photographs in Playboy got her career moving in a different direction. Carmen appeared in a Playboy video as a cheerleader and later, she signed on with the acting staff of Baywatch as the character Lani McKensi. She also hosted shows for MTV, replacing Jenny McCarthy on the show Singled Out.Carmen Electra achieved success in nearly every aspect of entertaining. She aspired to be a dancer, actress and singer and she accomplished all three. Her hosting and acting career faired better than her singing career. She has a new workout video that is innovative and imaginative. She incorporates sexy dancing into a choreographed routine designed to help burn calories. Carmen also has a substantial movie career. Her movie credits include Good Burger and the hit comedy, Scary Movie. Carmen showed her good sense of humor and her ability to laugh at herself through her role in Scary Movie. The film poked fun at her failed relationship with Prince, which is probably a distant memory for the now famous Carmen Electra. Electra grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and began performing at an early age when she place.
