DUBAI // If mention of the name Tara Leigh Patrick doesn't send mens' hearts racing, her alias Carmen Electra probably will. The 41-year-old American model, actress and singer is heading from Los Angeles to the UAE for a special appearance at Dubai's Cavalli Club, Restaurant & Lounge on Sunday night.
Electra, who was on the US television show Baywatch and in Scary Movie, follows in the footsteps of stars like Jennifer Lopez and Akon who have also been guests at the top table of flamboyant designer Roberto Cavalli in recent months.
Electra recently reportedly split from 53-year-old music mogul and talent show judge, Simon Cowell. One of her ex-husbands, the basketball player Dennis Rodman, was in the news recently after visiting North Korea. She has also been married to Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro.
Electra is due on the red carpet at 10.15pm before heading inside for a sumptuous four-course meal and dancing until the wee hours. She's also expected to give a brief press conference and reveal her upcoming television and movie projects, following up on Britain's Got Talent last year.
Cavalli is located in the Fairmont Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai. For reservations call 800 Cavalli (2282554) or go to www.cavalliclubdubai.com/ for more information.
