When Carmen Electra bared all on the “Crazy Horse Paris” stage in Las Vegas last week, it wasn’t because she was told she had to, and it wasn’t because she had been asked to, either.
Electra tossed her pasties to the side and went completely topless because she wanted to.
“It felt so good,” Electra said. “No one was expecting it. It was a completely last-minute decision,” she explained, noting the full reveal was not part of the model-actress’ original plan.
“I started off with a bra – a big bra – and a larger-sized panty,” Electra said, “(But) once I got here and had a chance to try on some of the costumes and get into some of the numbers, I decided to go with pasties, and then just yesterday right before the show … I was just backstage and they put the pasties on and I thought, no, let’s go without it, and I took them off and decided to just completely go for it.”
“I thought I would’ve been a little bit more nervous about showing so much,” the 37-year-old former Playmate said, “(But) it was very easy to decide (to do) … I felt really comfortable.”
Electra said her impulsive action had nothing to do with fellow topless show guest star Holly Madison’s decision to go topless during her stint as a guest star in “Peepshow.”
Like Electra, Madison’s pasty-free premiere at Planet Hollywood was subject of much will-she-or-won’t-she speculation before her debut last month. Rather than competition, however, Electra views Madison as a fellow entertainer and friend.
“There’s room for everyone,” the non-competitive and uncatty former Pussycat Doll said. “I’m such a girls’ girl; I support women and I think it’s great that she’s doing a show.”
Electra said joining the “Crazy Horse” cast has been a thrilling experience. “I’m just having a blast so far doing this,” she said.
“The dancers are so amazing, they’re so lovely,” the former “Baywatch” babe gushed. “They have the most perfect bodies and attitudes and they’re so much fun to work with.”
