It’s no secret that Pamela Anderson and husband Rick Salomon have had a rocky marriage.
Whether or not it will last is unknown, even to Anderson, but the former Bay Watch babe says that, for the moment, things are fine.
“It’s a real marriage,” the actress told People magazine Thursday at the Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners’ Annual Charity Day in NYC. “It has its ups and downs.”
Anderson told Us Weekly at the same event that it’s their friendship that makes the marriage unique and worth fighting for.
“It’s good!” Anderson told Us Weekly . “We’re good friends! I think that’s kind of what makes it special.”
The 47-year-old animal activist filed for divorce from Salomon back in July. But, by August, the divorce filing had been dismissed, a Los Angeles Superior Court spokesperson told Us Weekly. “The couple is still officially married,” the spokesperson said.
Anderson said it really comes down to choosing whether to remain in the marriage or let it go.
“That’s the thing [about relationships],” said Anderson. “You can make choices. You don’t have to stay in anything that doesn’t feel right, you know? That’s the modern world.”

This is the second time the couple have been married. Salomon, who is best known for his part in a scandalous sex tape with Paris Hilton, married the buxom blond back in 2007. The marriage only lasted a few months. The couple split three months after their wedding, and Anderson had their marriage annulled two months later.
Anderson announced in January that she and Salomon had once again married.
Anderson told Us that, for now, the reconciliation is going well, but doesn’t seem to have a clue whether it will work out in the long run.
“What are the odds?” Anderson said with a laugh. “I don’t know. Who knows? Who knows? I think we’re in it. I think we’re doing fine.”
