Born Tara Leigh Patrick, she changed her name to Carmen Electra after meeting Prince and touring with him for a while. Unfortunately, an ex-boyfriend stole most of her life savings after the tour ended, and she was stuck in Los Angeles with nowhere to go and no money to her name. She remained homeless for a couple of years until she landed a role on “Baywatch,” which launched her acting career.
She went on to host MTV’s dating game show “Singled Out” in 1997. Electra appeared in the films Goodburger, Scary Movie, Starsky and Hutch, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and Meet the Spartans. She has an estimated net worth of $16 million dollars.
