    Traci Bingham Married a Musician From Ames??

    Who knew knew about the former Baywatch girl, but can you imagine the bachelorette party around Campus Town that included Carmen Electra and Gena Lee Nolin?


    "in May 1998, but kept her name in the headlines with a June 1998 photo spread for Playboy magazine. In August of that year, Traci Bingham married musician Robb Vallier in a ceremony in his hometown of Ames, Iowa. Bridesmaids included fellow 'Baywatch' babes Carmen Electra and Gena Lee Nolin. "


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    I did not live too far from the church they were married in. Traci and her friends got there pretty quick from my place.

    I grew up in the church it was held up. One of the guys in my youth group got to do all the sound system stuff for it.

    I know that a portion of the reception was at the Memorial Union as well. I saw the pics that were published.

    I knew the groom's brother, Jeff Vallier while I was in Ames. Jeff was an awesome guitar player in his own right.

    I had Jane Vallier, Jeff and Robb's mom, as a speech teacher at ISU. It was while they were still married and she would name drop Traci almost every class. I was pretty impressed.

    He was an alum of our fraternity and they made a stop over when I was in school there.

    I sold a car to his grandparents shortly after the wedding. They were VERY nice people. I believe his grandfather Fred passed away a few years ago.

    I remember the hub-bub around town at the time was if Dennis Rodman was going to come to town since he was dating Carmen at the time. Of course he didn't.

    Freddy Hoiberg and Loren Meyer made it back to town for that wedding. Too bad the weather was rotten that weekend.

    Re: Traci Bingham Married a Musician From Ames??

    She came to a wedding in Carroll when she was still married to Rob. I went to pick her up at the airport in Des Moines, and she changed in the back of the car on the way home. I may or may not have adjusted the rear view just right for that one.

    Are you positive on that Rodman info? I was told by two different people that Carmen and Dennis, and the wedding party, stopped in People's inbetween the wedding and the reception.

    Re: Traci Bingham Married a Musician From Ames??

    There was a time period where I tailgated with some buddies that knew Robb, so I met Traci at a tailgate......and I didn't know who she was at the time. I always laugh when I think about that still, as how could I not have known? Anyways, she was really really nice and I think the tailgating was something really new for her. She seemed to really enjoy the tailgaiting!
