Carmen Electra has turned one year older – the legendary model and “Baywatch” alum didn’t miss the opportunity to mark her special day on Instagram, taking to the platform on Monday with a series of red-hot and very eye-catching throwbacks. The blonde turned 48 on April 20. Three separate posts showing Carmen, born Tara Leigh Patrick, landed on her account yesterday – the bombshell’s 1 million Instagram followers seemed unanimously sold on the revealing snaps.
Carmen recently made headlines for a nude Instagram throwback that nearly broke the platform’s rules – while yesterday’s photos were skimpy, they pushed less boundaries.
Carmen’s photo showed her upside down and knocking the camera dead as she flaunted a wild amount of side-boob while supporting her weight on her arms – the star’s legs were up against a white wall as she struck her pose outdoors and on a multi-color, striped towel. Seen rocking an electric blue bathing suit with a high-cut finish and a plunging neckline, Electra hid her face – the killer physique was on show, though.
With white sneakers upping the sporty babe look and her blonde hair down, Carmen reminded fans of her special day, writing: “Birthday #tb.”
Carmen’s fanbase is relatively modest, but this star comes with die-hard fans. They left her over 23,000 likes, also filling the comments section.
“The view is always perfect, no matter what,” one fan wrote, with another saying: “I want to be that wall!”
“Damn girl!!” was another reply, with many a user wishing the star a happy birthday. Remarks also came in over Carmen defying her age – “How? How you don’t age? You’re just as good now, if not better than when you started ‘Baywatch,'” one user wrote.
Carmen’s Instagram does rely on throwbacks, but the Ohio native does post up-to-date content – likewise videos. Earlier this year, the star posted a snapshot of herself strolling an abandoned beach – while the look lacked a brazen swimsuit finish, it did flash a little bikini as Carmen flaunted her trim figure in a khaki minidress. Far more revealing was Carmen’s mesh dress as she walked the Jean Paul Gaultier runway back in January – as The Blast documented, Instagram went wild as the former singer fully exposed her chest.
Carmen starred on hit TV series “Baywatch” from 1997-1998, also returning for the franchise’s 2003 reunion movie, “Baywatch: Hawaiin Wedding.” Speaking about replacing bombshell Pamela Anderson, Carmen recalled:
“I was so nervous. I had never acted in my life. I basically got the script and started,” adding:
“I walked into the audition and David Hasselhoff and everyone is sitting there. I’m just standing, nervously smiling, trying to do the best I can. The next question, ‘will you go put this red swimsuit on?’ I was in shock because at the time, I was shooting with MTV and I didn’t shave my legs.”
