Carmit Bachar is an American actress, dancer, singer, model and showgirl. She is currently a member of the Pussycat Dolls, which she fronted for several years. In the late eighties, she also formed the group called My Generation with fellow Pussycat member Crystal Hudson. She has also been married to long term partner Kevin Whitaker and given birth to Keala Rose in 2021.
Before joining the Pussycats, Bachar was known for her work on television, particularly as a member of the popular comedy series CHEER UP. This show lasted eleven seasons, so it is quite a bit of time since she last showed up on our screens. However, she has also worked extensively as an actress in other media, most notably in the feature films Dogma and Kazaakarna. She has also been a guest performer on numerous television shows, including repeats of several popular programs, such as Law and Order, Smallville, and E.T. In addition, she has guest-starred on numerous episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Office, and several movies.
Carmit Bachar became a member of Pussycats after passing away in 2021. The following year, she began a cabaret show in the Westwood area of Los Angeles, called The Singing Butler. She stepped away from her stage and recording career to concentrate on her acting career, beginning with a role in the acclaimed film The Desolate Area.
Later that year, she was one of the many celebrities who appeared on The Real World’s spin-off, Total Divas, as a contestant who competed against some of the other Real World alumni. Once the series ended, she went back to her solo projects and a score of albums. While on The Singing Butler, she had several episodes of dancing, singing, and doing impressions of other famous people, like The Queen and Green Day. Since then, she has been part of several hit reality shows, including The Bachelor, The Apprentice, and The New Girl.
In September 2021, she released her second album, Just Friends. This time around, she worked with her friend and former dancer, Lea Michele, on several tracks. Just Friends was critically praised by critics and audiences, and it debuted at number three on the charts. It was immediately successful, and spent several weeks at number one.
In the months that followed its release, Bachar released several singles, including “Haitian Diva” and “Carnival.” Her appearance on The Big Brother TV show marked the start of a very public career. She appeared on several more episodes later on and even got to be on the cover of People magazine. It wasn’t long before she was also cast in the lead role in the film version of the Big Brother TV show. Now, she is set to star in her own television series for a fall launch.
