Put those relationship rumors away, readers. Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra are not dating (yet).

Following rumblings that Simon Cowell was the peanut butter to her jelly, Carmen Electra shot down reports that the high profile pair was indeed a couple.

Our friends of Hollyscoop caught up with the 40-year-old stunner, and they couldn’t help but asking about the romantic rumors. But, alas…Carmen’s lips were sealed. “We’re friends. Just friends,” she said with a smirk on her face…

Carmen’s mum stunt was followed by an appearance on Access Hollywood where she answered a bashful “Maybe” to the questions if the duo had kissed and—ahem—laid down together.

Sounds like this whole “just friends” ruling comes complete with a benefits amendment…

Still, Carmen has enjoyed the time that she has been able to spend with the V-neck of “The X Factor.” When asked if she’d consider the idea of joining a singing competition show in the future, the “Baywatch” vet certainly seemed down.

“Absolutely,” she said. “I had a chance to work on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ with Simon and everyone and it was so much fun, I loved it. I had such a good time. It’s great.”“When I was on the show I just went in with a good sense of humor—wanting to have fun,”

“Just sort of realizing that you know, you have to be honest. You have to be honest but I like to keep it playful. That’s how I roll.”
