Tia Carrere has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, Simon Wakelin. This is Carrere’s second divorce — her first marriage to Elie Samaha ended in 2000. The marriage to Samaha lasted almost eight years. Both divorces were as a result of “irreconcilable differences.”
Carrere reportedly filed divorce recently through the Los Angeles Supreme Court and it’s said that Carrere is seeking sole physical custody of the couple’s daughter, Bianca.
The gorgeous Hawaiian-born Tia started her career off with a starring role in TV’s Airwolf, which I don’t remember ’cause I’m under thirty, and she then went on to star on soap-staple General Hospital. In 1991, Carrere debuted her big-screen talents in two obscure movies — Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man and Showdown in Little Tokyo — before landing her breakthrough role in Wayne’s World. Every time I hear Sweet’s Ballroom Blitz, I think of the lovely Cassandra.
Good luck to Carrere and family … divorce pretty much always sucks.

Tia Carrere, whom some of you may remember as Cassandra from Wayne’s World, stopped by the Grammy Gift Suite to play it up for some free shiz looking decidedly ‘schwing!’ worthy.
I haven’t seen her around much after Relic Hunter and then Dancing with the Stars, but from the looks of her credits she’s been doing alot of voiceover work.
More pics of Tia workin it for stuff I still have to pay for:

6Um, Did Someone Instruct the Entire Female Cast of Nip/Tuck to Show Up at the Season Five Screening Wearing Black Dresses?
Honestly, I half-expected to find a picture in this set of Julian McMahon in a tight little Prada number, but clearly he was too busy waxing his eyebrows to do anything about his legs.
