Carmen Electra Sues Naked Women's Wrestling League

Carmen Electra Sues Naked Women's Wrestling League

By Robert Paul Reyes

Carmen Electra is best known as a Playboy model, Baywatch cast member, and reality TV personality. Carmen has an amazing ability to always make the wrong choice, in her personal life as well as in her career.

Carmen ElectraInstead of seeking to gain credibility by tackling a challenging role, she became a Baywatch cast member. Instead of doing an in-depth interview with Vanity Fair magazine, she posed nude for Playboy. Instead of accepting supporting roles in serious movies, she`s made cameos in clunkers like Good Burger, The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Instead of building a professional relationship with a quality sports organization, she became a hostess for the Naked Women`s Wrestling League.

As far as making the wrong choices in her personal life, all I need to say is that she was married to Dennis Rodman from 1998 to 1999.

Carmen`s business relationship with the Naked Women`s Wrestling League has turned nasty.

"Lawyers for the Naked Women`s Wrestling League today won a round in court against Carmen Electra when a judge ruled the actress`s lawyers need to revise portions of her lawsuit demanding $300,000 for hosting several events.

The 36-year-old former `Baywatch` star, whose real name is Tara Patrick, filed her suit in Los Angeles County Court last Nov. 7. She claims NWWL bosses promised to pay her $400,000 for her appearances, but she only received $100,000."

I doubt that Carmen would be entangled in a lawsuit if she had made a business partnership with the WNBA instead of the NWWL -- but homegirl always makes the wrong decision.

I haven`t seen any of the pay-per-view telecasts of the NWWL, but I`m sure subscribers are interested in "money shots" and not wrestling techniques. By associating herself with such a skanky enterprise, Carmen deserves to be knee deep in legal troubles.

Carmen Electra is relatively young, and there`s still time for her to turn her career around. I hope that one day she will live up to her potential and becomes a quality actress.
