Carmella DeCesare is probably best known for being crowned Playboy’s Playmate of the Year 2004. She debuted on WWE that same year. She was also featured in the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the players’ wives feature. Her measurements are 34B-24-27.
Carmella DeCesare is a mix of Italian and Puerto Rican ancestry.
In high school, she said she was the girl that “everybody liked to tease. I wanted to be friends with everyone and have a good time, but it just didn’t work out that way…kids at that age are horrible and look for someone to pick on, and I guess I was it. I hadn’t grown up yet – I had big red-frame glasses and no style.”
Carmella DeCesare came to Playboy’s attention after she applied to a Fox reality show “Who Wants to Be a Playboy Centerfold” search. But after she was selected as a finalist, she had second thoughts and withdrew from the competition. Supposedly, after Hugh Hefner discovered that she had withdrawn, he invited her to his birthday party and got her to change her mind. She was subsequently chosen as a Cyber Girl of the Week, then a Cyber Girl of the Month before becoming Playboy’s Miss April in 2003.

Carmella DeCesare told Playboy in 2003 that her turn-ons were “ambition, a sense of humor, blond hair, green eyes, muscles and a handy man with great power tools!” Her turn-offs included “dishonesty, bad pickup lines and people who are fake, rude or jealous.”
She admires people who “start at the bottom and strive to make it to the top.”
As far as modeling, she said, “There are countless times when I walk into an audition where every girl is a 15 on a 10-scale. It's highly competitive and it's a business. There's a lot of rejection. It's not about who is prettier. It's all about what that casting person is looking for on that particular day. Living this lifestyle, you become a little jaded. You question what is considered normal. I've learned to be very accepting.”
She was among one of the many female celebrities who had their iCloud accounts hacked in August 2014.
Carmella DeCesare was married in 2007 to NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia. They currently reside in Manhattan Beach, California.
