What Happened When Carmen Electra Ran Into Ex Dennis Rodman At A Party

Remember when they were a thing in the '90s?

Running into your ex is always a little bit awkward. Just ask Carmen Electra.

The model and former "Baywatch" actress stopped by HuffPost Live Thursday and talked about a recent run-in she had with ex-husband Dennis Rodman. The 43-year-old actress said she was hosting a party in Florida when Rodman unexpectedly showed up.

"There was chaos with security -- they thought it was going to be this big problem and this big deal," she said. "They said, 'do you want us to keep you guys separate?' and I said, 'no!'"

In the end, Electra and the former Chicago Bulls forward ended up having a nice catch-up sesh.

"We talked for five minutes, we caught up a little bit and that was it -- and it was nice," Electra said. "I've cared about him throughout all these years and it was great to hear that he sounded like he was in a decent place. "

Electra and Rodman got married in Las Vegas in 1998 after a whirlwind months-long romance.The couple were married for less than a year before officially divorcing in 1999.

"Our relationship was very passionate," she said. "When it was good, it was amazing. And when it was bad, it was the worst."
