Carmella DeCesare - WWE Divas

Carmella Danielle DeCesare Garcia (born July 1, 1982) is an American model and a former WWE RAW diva who was Playboy magazine's Miss April 2003 and Playmate of the Year for 2004. She is of Italian and Puerto Rican descent.

DeCesare was born in Avon Lake, Ohio and lives in Manhattan Beach, California. She graduated from Avon Lake High School in 2000, and later worked at a title company in the Cleveland area. She responded to Playboy's "Who Wants to Be a Playboy Centerfold?" search when it came to Cleveland and was selected as a finalist for the competition. However, she had second thoughts and withdrew early in the taping of material for the Fox Network special that aired in the summer of 2002. DeCesare then changed her mind about posing for Playboy again, and was quickly named Cyber Girl of the Week in October, 2002, Cyber Girl of the Month in February, 2003, before being selected as Playboy's Miss April, 2003.

She competed in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) $250,000 RAW Diva Search and came in second to Christy Hemme. Though she came in second, she developed as a jealous heel and WWE decided to keep her temporarily. She competed in a match against Christy at Taboo Tuesday 2004 in a losing effort and appeared several times on the WWE's RAW show until she was released by the company shortly there after. The song Carmella used as her theme while working with the WWE was "Bodytalk" by Kynady Lee; the song was later used by Amy Weber. She also appeared on the game shows Family Feud on May 10, 2004, the Howard Stern Show, and Street Smarts.

DeCesare married Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jeff Garcia on April 21, 2007 at the CordeValle Resort in San Martin, California. Although she is still known professionally as Carmella DeCesare, she now publicly refers to herself as Carmella Garcia. In an May 2007 interview with the Calgary Sun, Jeff Garcia intimated that since DeCesare is now his wife she will distance herself from Playboy. The article also reported that DeCesare was trying to get a job as a Tampa Bay Buccaneers sideline reporter. DeCesare is listed as the vice-president of Garcia's charity, the Garcia Pass It On Foundation.
