‘X Factor’: Simon Cowell confirms romance with Carmen Electra

Simon Cowell Mrs Carter: Seems that Carmen has that “X Factor” that Simon’s been looking for.

“X Factor” judge Simon Cowell has been a man about town ever since he ended his engagement with makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy in February.  He has been linked to anyone and everyone under the sun, including “True Blood” star Janina Gavankar (whom we were secretly hoping would be the one to settle this boy down), but now Simon himself has confirmed that he is indeed dating Carmen Electra.  There has been romance rumors surrounding Simon and Carmen since November, but on Wednesday Cowell confirmed that they are dating (not exclusively) to Ryan Seacrest.  He said: “We’re people who date. She’s adorable, isn’t she?”

Carmen has also opened up about her feelings towards Simon, telling Access Hollywood Live that he’s a “sweetheart” and “so cute”.  She said: “He’s so cute. He is adorable. He’s actually a sweetheart. 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.”

Like Simon, Carmen also ended her engagement earlier this year to Robert Patterson, so besides “Britain’s Got Talent” they also have that in common.  While these two on the surface don’t seem to be a great match for anything long term they really do have a lot in common, especially the fact that both of them are looking to have fun, but as we all know “fun” can turn into love when you’re not paying attention.

Do you like Simon and Carmen together or would you rather see Simon with someone else?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
