Pamela Anderson appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday to talk about her upcoming run for charity in the New York City Marathon. But DeGeneres also had to ask about a recent trip to a beach in France, where she was pictured topless and was there with ex-husband Rick Salomon.
DeGeneres asked Anderson to talk about the current state of their relationship. “Are you back together?”
“I say we're best friends…with benefits,” Anderson replied.
People notes that DeGeneres joked about Anderson “going back to the same guys” and the former Baywatch star replied, “It’s recycling … No, I'm very happy. We’re happy. He's a great guy.”
Anderson did get to talk about why she was on Ellen in the first place - her run in the marathon on Nov. 3. She’s running for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, which is trying to help the population of Haiti after its devastating 2010 earthquake.
"I've never even run across the street [before this],” Anderson joked. “I started running and I hated it, of course...Everyone hates running for the first mile ... and now I love it. I look forward to it. It clears my head."
Anderson and Salomon were only married for two months before she filed for divorce in 2007.
