Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra really isn’t all about sex. Really, she isn't.

At least that's what the former Baywatch babe wants us to believe.

Electra insists that you won't always find her wearing next to nothing. "One of the big misconceptions about me is that I walk around in miniskirts and high heels twenty-four seven and go to the gym in heels," she tells Jeanne Wolf at Parade.com. When people see me dressed normally, they can't believe it. It's really weird."

In fact, she say sometimes she is more Tara Patrick than Carmen Electra...

For those not up on Carmen factoids, Tara Patrick is her real name.

And yes, Electra talks about Tara in the third person. "She's that side of me that was afraid of rejection, that was afraid to take a chance, and step up and have someone say, 'no, you don't get the role," Electra says. "I do still have that side of me—that soft, sensitive side—and I think that Carmen is the more aggressive part of me. There are moments when I am so that little girl from Cincinnati, Ohio [where she grew up], and I cry and I'm just like everybody else. You know, I have all the same feelings that everyone else has."

She can also tap into her girl-on-girl feelings. At least for a flick like her new Disaster Movie, in which she gets it on with E! reality star Kim Kardashian.

"I really got to know her in our wrestling scene," Electra says. "There’s hair pulling and I hurt my back and got some burn marks. But it’s also sexy. We’re sort of playing with the idea that guys get turned on by girls wrestling. We get into some down and dirty positions, so it’s a good thing we became friends. Kim is so cool, not to mention being hot."
