Did Carmen Electra’s plane ticket get lost in the mail?
With “The X Factor” off the air, Simon Cowell is on an extended holiday … but he’s not alone. While recharging in Barbados, the British reality TV judge has been spending time with not one but two of his exes – former fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy and one-time flame Sinitta. The cozy vacation comes at an interesting time – just one week ago, the 53-year-old confirmed that he’s dating the “adorable” Electra, who didn’t seem to be invited along for the getaway.
Over the weekend, animal lover Cowell was flanked by Hussainy and Sinitta at a charity event for The Hope Sanctuary, a local dog and cat shelter on the island. Sitting in the front row next to the glammed up women, the sometimes cranky judge was dressed down in jeans and one of his trademark v-neck shirts. He appeared to be in a great spirits – and was certainly feeling generous. For the auction part of the event, Cowell – who landed on Forbes’ highest-paid celebrities list for 2012, earning a reported $90 million – donated a VIP trip to the 2013 finale of “The X Factor.”
But the fun between Cowell and his exes didn’t end there. He and a bikini clad Hussainy also went jet skiing on more than one occasion, including New Year’s Eve. They made a big splash riding the waves – and their outing didn’t go unnoticed. When they returned to the shore, a crowd of fans was gathered waiting to meet the TV star. Sinitta also emerged from their waterfront hotel to hit the beach with them and some other members of their vacation posse.

The “I Like It Loud” singer took part in Fox’s “New Year’s Eve Live” countdown at Mandalay Bay, then partied the rest of the night away at The Act Las Vegas. Dressed in a curve-hugging sparkling mini and fierce high heels, Electra didn’t appear distraught over Cowell’s vacation – or maybe the one-time “Baywatch” star is suddenly a great actress.
It’s still possible that Cowell and Electra could meet up early in the new year. On Christmas Eve, he tweeted that he will be “on my hols for three weeks,” so he has nearly two more weeks of R&R ahead of him – and you never know who will turn up by his side. Or maybe things between the two are extremely casual. After all, Cowell did note that Electra is “not my girlfriend. We’re people who date.”
