carmen electra rob patterson getty Carmen Electra and Rob Patterson call off engagement; Carmen readies for 'The Choice'Carmen Electra has called off her four-year engagement to former Filter guitarist Rob Patterson, but don’t get too excited — unless you’re a contestant on this summer’s “The Choice” on FOX.

“[The engagement’s] off … They’re more like roommates. They don’t share a bedroom anymore and they sleep in separate parts of her house,” a source tells Life & Style.

The news comes on the heels of FOX’s announcement of the celebrities who will be participating on their summer dating show “The Choice,” where famous singles will go on dates with non-famous singles based on what they hear, as their backs will be to the contestants “Voice”-style.

The show is primarily featuring male celebs and female non-celebs, but there will be one episode that features four female celebrities — Carmen Electra, Hope Dworaczyk, Rima Fakih and Sophie Monk.

This would have been Carmen’s third marriage. She was previously married to rock star Dave Navarro and NBA star Dennis Rodman. Perhaps now she’ll settle down with a nice non-famous boy.
