Carmen Electra is "happily single".

The 42-year-old actress recently split from clothing mogul Tal Cooperman after their brief romance began to fizzle out, but the blonde beauty doesn't appear to be on the hunt for a new lover as she's enjoying being on her own.

She said: "I'm happily single."

However, Carmen, who had a brief fling with Simon Cowell last year, hasn't ruled out another relationship in the near future, but insists she will take her time with it.

She explained to E! News: "I'm a relationship girl. I've always been in long-term relationships, so you know, this is the first year that I'm actually taking my time and not jumping into anything and taking it slow and having fun."

Although, the model - whose real name is Tara Patrick - admits it takes a certain type of guy to catch her attention.

She added: "Obviously, he has to be somewhat of a bad boy because I'm always attracted to that."

Carmen recently sparked rumours she had rekindled her romance with ex-husband Dave Navarro, whom she married in 2003 before divorcing him in 2006, after he posted a picture on Twitter of them touching tongues.

Carmen was also married to Dennis Rodman in 1998 before their romance ended in 1999.

She also got engaged to rocker Rob Patterson in 2009 before the pair split up in October 2012.
