Carmen Electra made a name for herself when she starred on Baywatch and wore the iconic red swimsuit that is still in the pop culture lexicon years later. More recently, though, she became a prominent topic once more when she appeared in The Last Dance and had seemed to age very little. With the newfound notice, Ms. Electra took herself to OnlyFans and now is making a killing on the platform; she recently opened up about why she “loves” the work.
OnlyFans is a content creation platform that has helped loads of celebrities make an extra buck or – more accurately – millions of bucks. While the former Baywatch star hasn’t been open about how much money she’s made on the platform thus far, there is one thing she’s absolutely loving about the gig, with the TV star noting, “there's no one telling you what to do; I'm my own boss.”
She also opened up about the creative freedoms she feels the platform has allowed h
In general, OnlyFans has been a place known for nudity –see former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey’s profile – and curiosities – see a 90 Day Fiancé star selling fart jars for cash. But from what Carmen Electra shared with Fox News, the platform has given her major boss lady mojo, and has allowed her to be a curator of her own brand and content in a way she hasn’t really been able to explore before as a model or actress. It makes sense, too, as we know Carmen Electra searches went up after her viral The Last Dance appearance.
A subscription to the TV star's OnlyFans account is currently free; regardless, for VIP access, Ms. Electra requests a $150 tip. This is a bit of a different model than some other celebrities, including Bella Thorne, who have charged fans to view activity month-to-month.
So, how did she get into this space? It's actually pretty simple, according to the Baywatch star. Over the course of her career, people have made suggestions about her next move, but in the case of OnlyFans all of the stars aligned. She also said:
For a time, Carmen Electra would appear in an acting project here or there, but her last appearance in that sort of gig came in 2018. The fandom's interest was reignited in the 50-year-old star after an appearance in the Michael Jordon documentary in 2020, already the time OnlyFans was gaining in popularity (thanks to Beyoncé). The rest, as they say, is history.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. Theme park junkie. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
