... Were they, or weren't they?!

Marcia Clark stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday, when she opened up about the relationship between her and her former legal partner during the infamous O.J. Simpson trial, Christopher Darden. Although DeGeneres notes that Darden is portrayed as seeming to be "in love" with Clark in the FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Clark says she didn't get that vibe in real life.

"We were really partners," Clark said. "We were trench mates. He wasn't my second chair. A lot of times when you prosecute you have a senior prosecutor and a junior prosecutor. It wasn't like that. We were co-counsel and he was my partner and it was really ... I can't tell you how important it was to have him there."

When DeGeneres asked if the two made out in real life, the former prosecutor got adorably flustered.

"We danced," Clark, 62, laughed. "We did take trip to the bay area."

When ET caught up with Clark last September, she talked more in-depth about her relationship with Darden, 59.

"He kept me from just utter depression so many days," Clark revealed. "Sometimes it would really get to me. And he would be there to say, 'It's alright, it's going to be OK. If we just keep putting on the evidence, they'll get it. They'll get it.'"

"He was a great partner, and I hope they show that," she added about the hit FX show.

Sadly, the two have since lost touch.

"We were in touch periodically after the trial for years," Clark told ET earlier this month. "We ran into each other at times, and got to talk and reminisce, if you will. But we've gone separate ways, and we haven't spoken in quite some time now."

In Darden's 1996 memoir, In Contempt, he does reference he and Clark dancing together in their off-time.

"We sat up listening to hip-hop and R&B. We danced a few times and drank a few bottles of wine," he wrote. "She and I were two passionate people thrown together in a trial that left us exhausted and lonely. She was willing to take off her jewelry and go to jail with me over a ridiculous contempt ruling. I was willing to be at her side during her child custody deposition."

"In my mind, that is a relationship," he added.
