When asked how she'd swipe on a photo of Jon Hamm, the actress look puzzled. "Who's that?" she laughed, before deciding to swipe left for him not being enough of a "bad boy."

Huffington Post - about 1 year
It was 1998. Furbys were newly terrifying. Fruit Gushers were delicious. Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman were in love. And nobody knew who Jimmy Fallon was. Fallon stopped by Alec Baldwin's podcast, "Here's The Thing," and Tuesday's episode talked about his rise to fame and how he found himself behind the "Tonight Show" desk. But what we found especially memorable was his revelation that a certain celebrity was his style icon in the '90s. It was pre-SNL, and Fallon described how he looked for his second audition: "My outfit is awful. I look like I'm auditioning for Cirque du Soliel, everything was so tight. A tight brown shirt. My hair was spiked up, because I saw a picture of -- I'm gonna forget her name now. Actress. She's British. She had spiky hair." Then it hit him: Kate Beckinsale.

    Five years later, Electra gave an interview to Glamour in which she admitted that she married Rodman in 1998 in direct response to the numbing emotional pain and personal tragedy she experienced losing her older sister Debbie and mother in rapid succession that August:
    More Details Hide Details I was just going through the motions. I was completely numb. At the time, I was dating Dennis Rodman. He was such a fun person to be around, and we went out every night. I remember thinking, this is my out. I'm just going to have fun, and I'm not going to worry about anything. Right after my mom and sister died, I flew to Las Vegas and Dennis and I got married. I guess I was trying to cling to whatever I had. I'd lost my mom and my sister; I didn't want to lose anyone else. We were married for about five months. When I started going through some really hard times with Dennis, I became addicted to feeling that pain instead of dealing with my feelings about my mom and sister. But at some point, I realized I had to stop blaming him. So I got out of my marriage and started reading a lot of self-help books and watching Oprah Winfrey. And one day Oprah said, In order to heal, you have to feel. At that moment I realized I wasn't letting myself feel what I needed to.
    She and Rodman wed in November 1998 at Little Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas, Nevada.
    More Details Hide Details Nine days later, Rodman filed for annulment, claiming he was of "unsound mind" when the pair wed. Electra explained, "It's easy to get caught up in a moment. You think it's romantic, but then you realize, God, we did it in Vegas? It's like getting a cheeseburger at a fast-food restaurant."
    In 1998, Electra was dating NBA star Dennis Rodman when in August her mother and sister died within weeks of each other.
