Born Tara Patrick on April 20, 1972, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Electra was discovered by Prince and tried to launch a musical career in an all-girl rap group before a nude spread in Playboy put her on the map. After her two-year role on Baywatch, Electra has maintained her celebrity status due more to her looks and high-profile personal life than her acting career, starring in films like Scary Movie and Meet the Spartans.
Despite filming an MTV reality show about their 2003 wedding ambitiously called Til Death Do Us Part, Electra and second husband Dave Navarro filed for divorce in August 2006. Electra had previously been married to, and quickly divorced from, basketball player Dennis Rodman, and had a much-publicized affair with Tommy Lee. She was most recently engaged to rocker Rob Patterson.
