Carmen Electra is grabbing her lifeguard float and diving headfirst back into the water to recant her days of running along the Malibu beach in a tight red swimsuit. The 48-year-old former “Baywatch” star has been sharing some scenes from the production of the upcoming documentary on the iconic TV series, titled, “Baywatch: The American Dream.”
For those who may not remember, Electra was a series regular on “Baywatch” from 1997-1998 and played the role of Lani McKenzie. Lani became a fan-favorite when she joined up with Mitch Buchannon and the other L.A. County Lifeguards. With dreams of bright lights and wanting to become a dancer, Lani thought working as a lifeguard would fund her life until her big break. The writer was smart to include Lani’s dancing background, as it was perfect for Carmen Electra to highlight her own talents in the organic fashion.
To film her part in the documentary, Carmen Electra had the production crew meet at her luxury home in Los Angeles.
“Brought @baywatchdocumentary into my home for a little chat,” the actress and model wrote on Instagram while showing off the views of the crew.
She also showed off a cherry-red business suit, which was obviously a direct nod to the red swimsuits the lifeguards on “Baywatch” made famous.
“[Looking] as young as you were filming the show in the 90s,” one fan wrote about Electra’s ravishing look.
Carmen Electra is proud of her time on “Baywatch” and has spoken out about breaking stigmas with women in television and recognizing how far roles in Hollywood have come for actresses since her days in the red swimsuit.
“This was a time when u would be judged for having a thicker body ! It’s beautiful to see how things have changed & all shapes & sizes are loved ❤️?? lovin the ladies ❤️ keep it up,” she wrote on a recent Instagram post while showing off her lifeguard tower pose.
It’s unclear what Carmen Electra will dish on with the “Baywatch” documentary crew, but we’re guessing one thing she’ll get into is the famous shower scenes!
“That Baywatch shower moment,” the star recently captioned some steamy shots of herself from the show’s iconic lockeroom.
It’s interesting, although Electra had some hot scenes in the showers, she didn’t crack the top list that “Baywatch” put together of their best shower moments.
The top honors didn’t go to any slouches, however, as Electra’s co-stars, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth and Alexandra Paul were featured in many of the long-running series’ top moments.
