While there is virtually no information regarding Carmen’s early life and education, she rose to fame as a participant in the third season of ‘’Ru Paul’s Drag Race’’, a reality television series focused on competition between drag queens, led by the drag legend, Ru Paul; the series received vast success from its premier in 2009. Carmen joined this popular series in 2011, in the episode entitled ‘’Casting Extravaganza’’, and made her last appearance in ‘’Reunion’’ that year. Overall, ‘’Ru Paul’s Drag Race’’ won numerous awards such as three Primetime Emmys, in addition to being nominated for another 24 awards. Appearing in this worldwide watched show, Carrera was exposed further, and gained more fans and popularity.

Speaking about her other television projects, she appeared in three episodes of ‘’Ru Paul’s Drag U’’, another series of the previously mentioned franchise. In addition, Carmen has made several minor appearances on television in series including ‘’Fashion News Live’’ and ‘’Cake Boss’, but most importantly, she worked on the documentary ‘’South Beach On Heels’’, in which she starred alongside Cornelius and Noel Figueroa, and which won two awards: the Jury Award for Best Feature Documentary and the LAIFF June Award for Best Documentary Director. In 2015, Carrera appeared in ten episodes of ‘’Couples Therapy’’, as she attended relationship counselling with her then partner.

When it comes to her further career as an actress, Carmen has had minor roles in several projects, including ‘’Jane the Virgin’’ in 2014, in which she portrayed Eva, and in 2015 played Karlie in ‘’The Bold and the Beautiful’’, adding somewhat to her net worth.

When it comes to her private life, Carrera has been pretty open about this topic. She came out as a transgender person in 2012, in one episode of the series entitled ‘’Primetime: What Would You Do?’’. She is an advocate for transgender people and often speaks up about the issues she has had regarding the treatment she gets from other people. She was the subject of drama when she was cast in ‘’Cake Boss’’ and set up on a date with Anthony Bellifemine, and later on was called a man, which was extremely upsetting for Carmen, which she mentioned on her Facebook page. However, the main character of ‘’Cake Boss’’ apologized to her later on, saying that he didn’t have any intentions of offending people from the LGBT community or Carrera herself. Speaking about her relationship status, she was married to Adrian Torres, but the couple separated, which was followed in ‘’Couple’s Therapy’’ including consequent counselling – they subsequently married in June 2015, which was shown in the series’ finale later that year. Carrera is active on social media websites such as Facebook and Instagram, and is followed by almost 400,000 people on the latter.
