With a name like “Carmen Electra” one would think she’s part Italian, but it’s just a stage name

there is a golden rule in hollywood

if somebody looks exotic this person should not talk about ethnicity and make if you are just white

on the other side there are 100 percent white and european looking people who can claim to have indian or black roots

FERGIE and electra are among them

California July 25, 2015 at 5:30 am

neiltennant July 21, 2015 at 2:15 pm

you are all stupid and dumb

look at this girl

her name is REBECCA KRATZ. both of her parents are germans

and she looks exactly like ELECTRA

and the reason why some think that electra looks exotic, is that she tans and she lives in california

like the girl REBECCA KRATZ who lives also in a hot region (spain )

Always thought she had Spanish or native in her. I guess because of the makeup, eye liner, fake makeup…

loiro February 24, 2016 at 6:43 am

this makes no sense, spanish people are white europeans while natives are well natives and look nothing like spaniards lol

Are you serious? Why are you talking shit about white women for if you are “pure blooded Latina”? Unless , of course, you don’t understand what a Latin person is.
Well, since you don’t understand what you are talking about I will enlighten you. The Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Roman people are Latin. The natives of what is now known as Latin America started to be called Latin because of the Spanish and the Portuguese.. The Spanish and Portuguese forced there culture and language on them and that is what you see now.. You will see people of all different ancestries claiming that they are Latin just because they were born in a Latin American country.. The majority of Latin Americans are Mestizo (white and native American)… Us white women are just as exotic, shapely, sexy, exciting and beautiful as any other race of women.. Also Nordic women are known for their large natural breasts.. Honestly, stop being both racist and jealous, the first and only real Latinas are white women like my mother who is Spanish. Honestly did you even finish middle school? How can you not know these things?

WTF June 2, 2014 at 12:18 pm

she looks kinda latina. i think maybe she has native american in her or someone in her family was hispanic

roman2886 July 4, 2014 at 1:26 pm

There is no Hispanic in her she has no English and Dutch in her either she is primarily Irish German and Cherokee she has a similar ethnic background too the Jonas Brothers they are primarily Irish Italian German and Cherokee.

We are also related to actor Dennis Weaver.

Connie December 17, 2010 at 10:24 pm

She is a distant cousin of mine . Cherokee along with Jimi Hendrix, Jennifer Garner , Eartha Kitt, Will Rogers.

Connie December 17, 2010 at 10:21 pm

I am a distant cousin and she does have cherokee relating back to Nancy Ward. We are also related to Jimi Hendrix James and Jennifer Garner, Earhta Kitt and Will Rogers.

SparkleTime January 2, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Nancy Ward? Would that not mean that her Cherokee ancestry goes back hundreds of years? That is very distant . . . And if she is related to Jimi Hendrix and Eartha Kitt, wouldn’t she be part black? How come Cherokee is not listed for Jennifer Garner and Will Rogers as part of their ethnicity?

Ken Jamuskhan Hussein Nguyen December 17, 2010 at 6:25 pm

If you are a mix race it will make you beautiful. I’m African-Eurasian, I’m Vietnamese, Mongolian, Chinese, Tatar, Saudi Arabian, African American, Kyrgyz, Kazakh, French, Italian, Laotian, Yemeni, Cambodian, and German. ppl should love their names and who they are. Just accept who u are because God created us differently from other people. Besides nobody is pure blooded. Everybody is a mixed race.

tash November 3, 2010 at 7:52 pm

She has definately got native american blood. all the beautiful people have native american blood, cameron diaz (Cherokee), Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, Johnny depp, Myley Cyrus, Beyonce. You can tell by there eyes. the eyes look a bit asian.

Anonymous April 24, 2011 at 12:24 am

Angelina Jolie is not part Native American, and I think Cameron Diaz is hideous. She was beautiful in The Mask, but she aged so terribly that it is not even funny. Carmen and Miley Cyrus are not that great either.

Natasha August 20, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Tara Patrick is a sort of Irish sounding name.

Micia Leigh August 10, 2010 at 5:44 am

AUSTIN February 2, 2010 at 11:28 pm

Her stage name was given to her by Prince like all the other women he dated (Appalonia) lol.

ethnic January 12, 2010 at 1:39 pm

I guess they want to sound cool. eg. Tom cruise sounds better than Thomas Mapother IV

La Nena January 12, 2010 at 6:10 am
