Carmen Electra dropped a pretty juicy admission during episode three of the ‘Last Dance’ when she recounted hiding behind the couch as Michael Jordan dragged Dennis Rodman out of her bed in Las Vegas.
But the new documentary didn’t exactly get the juiciest story behind Electra and Rodman’s whirlwind romance.

Rodman famously had a fling with the actress and ‘Playboy’ cover model during his days with the Chicago Bulls.
It ultimately led to a short-lived marriage that resulted from a 1998 bender in Las Vegas.
Electra talked with the Los Angeles Times about the documentary, saying watching it was an emotional experience that made her want “to get up and cheer” and that “seeing Dennis back on the court brought tears to my eyes.”
She also said that part of Rodman’s courtship involved a surprise trip to the Bulls’ practice facility that included Popsicles and sex “all over the damn place.”
“One day when the Bulls had an off day from practicing, Dennis said he had a surprise for me,” Electra told the Times.
“He blindfolds me and we get on his motorcycle. When he finally takes my blindfold off, we’re standing at the Bulls practice facility, centre court. It was crazy, like two kids in a candy store.
“We were eating Popsicles from the fridge and pretty much having sex all over the damn place - in the physical therapy room, in the weight room. Obviously on the court.”
Electra was candid with the Times, opening up about her party heyday in her 20s with Rodman.
She talked about Rodman’s erratic behaviour while recalling moments like being invited to the Bulls locker-room celebration after their 1998 NBA Finals win over the Utah Jazz.
“Dennis gave me his jersey - he was always throwing his jersey to fans,” Electra said.
“I got pulled into the locker room really quickly, and suddenly I’m in there with the guys.
“Michael Jordan is popping bottles, champagne is being poured down my throat, in my hair and on my clothes. I was honoured to be allowed in there.”
When Jordan had to drag Rodman from Electra’s bed
‘The Last Dance’ delivered another classic moment as the crew handed phones to Rodman, Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson that played a video of Jordan recounting a certain meeting in the 1997-98 season.
Jordan had to make a mad dash to Las Vegas to retrieve Rodman from a 48-hour break away from the team.
“I say, ‘Look Phil, let me tell you something man, if anybody needs a f***ing vacation, I need a vacation’,” Jordan says in ‘The Last Dance’.
“We look at Dennis and say, ‘Dennis, what are you going to do?’ He says, ‘Well, I need to go to Vegas’.
“(I say) ‘Phil, you let this dude go on vacation, we’re not going to see him. You let him go to Vegas, we’re definitely not going to see him’.
“I’m looking at Phil like, ‘You ain’t going to get that dude back in 48 hours, I don’t care what you say’.”
As it turns out Jordan was right and after four days he was forced to go looking for his teammate.
“It was on, the party was started right away,” Electra recounts.
“It was definitely an occupational hazard being Dennis’ girlfriend. He was wild.”
Jordan said he stormed Rodman’s hotel room and dragged his “a** out of bed”, while Electra said she was forced to hide.
“There’s a knock on the door, it’s Michael Jordan, and I hid,” Electra says.
“I didn’t want him to see me like that so I’m hiding behind the couch with covers over me.”
