Carmen Electra just dropped $2.11 million on a monochromatic Hollywood Hills home with a dramatic master bathroom that calls to mind her ex-boyfriend and mentor, the dearly departed Prince. The expansive room has large windows with gauzy white curtains — and a large soaking tub in the corner that’s topped by a chandelier.

The singer/actress/model/TV personality was going by her given name, Tara Leigh Patrick, when she signed to the Purple One’s Paisley Park Records. Electra has credited Prince with christening her Carmen and setting her on the path to stardom.

And now she owns a castle fit for a modern princess. The 3,852-square-foot home looks traditional on the outside, but is dramatic on the inside, with dark hardwood floors, a chic gray fireplace mantle that stretches to the top of the soaring ceilings, and a transparent, floor-to-ceiling wine cooler that’s the centerpiece of the eat-in kitchen.

With five bedrooms and five baths, the home offers two spacious levels for Electra and her husband, musician Rob Patterson, to spread out — plus a waterfall out back.
