Carmen Electra to Pose for Playboy
11/12/2008 AT 01:40 PM EST
Electra, 36, first posed for the publication in 1996 – a move that helped transform the Ohio-based girl next door, who was born Tara Leigh Patrick, into an international pin-up star.
The January issue, which marks the 55th anniversary of Playboy magazine, goes on sale Dec. 12.
