Carmen Electra took less than an hour to be told: “You broke the internet with this” last night. The 48-year-old model and actress took to Instagram with a throwback from her days on TV series “Baywatch” – if you’re old enough to remember the blonde’s 1997-1998 stint on the show, you might recognize the snap. If you sat there and watched the ESPN-aired “The Last Dance” over April and May, the ex to former Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman will likewise prove a familiar face.
Scroll for the photo clocking Carmen – born Tara Leigh Patrick – over 17,000 likes overnight. Not bad for an Instagram account with 1.1 million followers. The hot shot showed Carmen back in the day and on the set of “Baywatch.” The Ohio native was seen right on the beach and delivering an enviably-flexible stretch as she grabbed her right and turned-out leg and held it up by her head. Carmen’s rock-hard abs were on show via a black, v-neck crop top, with teeny tiny and matching Adidas shorts showing off her killer legs.
Carmen, who trained as a dancer, found herself complemented up the wazoo for this one. “Daaamn flexible! I can’t even touch my toes,” one fan wrote, with another saying: “Damn girl can u still stretch that good? ?” Carmen – who wound up front-page news after revealing she had sex “all over” the Chicago Bulls court with Rodman recently – was also told she’d straight up broken the internet. The male in the background was also mentioned – “??? This guy is like ‘God I love my job’ ???,” a fan wrote. More below.
Carmen, who recently reminded IG why those “natural bubbles” made it Pepsi, also reminded the planet just how adventurous her brief marriage to former Chicago Bulls player Rodman was, per her L.A. Times interview. “It was crazy, like two kids in a candy store. We were eating Popsicles from the fridge and pretty much having sex all over the damn place—in the physical therapy room, in the weight room. Obviously on the court. … To be honest, I don’t think he’s ever worked out so hard in his life,” she said. Scroll for that iconic “Baywatch” swimsuit.
Carmen’s reveal had a knock-on effect. Pornhub searches for the blonde were averaging 1,500 per day prior to “The Last Dance,” with the basketball documentary then seeing searches spike to 1.7 million – per day. Carmen’s Instagram quickly found itself filled with comments from NBA fans – and she replied. When a fan asked if she’d ever “bang” icon Michael Jordan, Carmen replied: “No because he was married with kids & he was close to DR!” Carmen’s IG is followed by celebrities including singer Demi Lovato and rapper Chanel West Coast.
