Trick or treat? Dennis Rodman was a big surprise at a Fright Night party in Boca Raton, Fla. on Thursday, Oct. 23, when he showed up unannounced to the event, which was hosted by none other than his ex-wife Carmen Electra

Electra, 42, hit the red carpet at the bash, showing off her toned body in a curve-hugging, cutout dress. The Baywatch star's good times were short-lived, however, as she soon ran into her ex-husband Rodman, 53. 

In what had to be an awkward moment, the actress stared down the eccentric former basketball player, choosing not to crack a smile as he approached her. 

The run-in came just days after Electra opened up about her late '90s marriage to Rodman in an episode of Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now? series.

"People couldn't understand why I loved him, because he had a reputation for being a bad boy," she said of the retired Bulls player. "What I saw in the beginning was this gentle giant that was in a lot of pain. So in a way we understood each other."

Indeed, Electra grew close to Rodman in a time of personal anguish, marrying the athlete after the death of her sister Debbie. The couple eloped to Las Vegas in November 1998, only to divorce after just six months.

 

"Our relationship was very passionate," she said on the Where Are They Now? episode. "When it was good, it was amazing, and when it was bad, it was the worst… [The wedding] happened so fast. It was so spontaneous, and I remember right after, 'Oh god, what did we do?'"
