Simon Cowell is dating Carmen Electra.
Apparently some brains, money and a lot of bluster can go a long way.
After much speculation, Simon Cowell finally confirmed to Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday that he's dating Carmen Electra, according to MSN.com. But they're not exclusive.
"She's not my girlfriend," Cowell, 53, explained when he called in to the "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest" radio show. "We're people who date."
I don't know. It sounds like he may ask her to the prom.
"She's adorable, isn't she?" he asked Seacrest of the 40-year-old actress/model.
She sure is -- once you get past the fact that she was once married to Dennis Rodman.
She apparently likes Cowell, too.
She talked about their relationship on "Access Hollywood Live." "He's so cute. He is adorable. He's actually a sweetheart," the former "Baywatch" star explained. "The thing is, we worked together on 'Britain's Got Talent.' I was a guest judge, and I had so much fun. I really liked him. I think he's really cool."
Electra ended her four-year engagement with metal musician Rob Patterson earlier this year. She was also once married to rocker Dave Navarro.
Cowell ended his engagement earlier this year to make up artist Mezhgan Hussainy.
