"I'm grateful to be here with my friend."
And Paul admitted he is also pleased Helen is still here.
He added: "Me too."
The pair have reunited for a revival of the 90s US sitcom, in which they play a married couple who live in New York City, and admitted they were keen to reprise their roles before they died.
She said: "We agreed for 20 solid years that it was a terrible idea, we must never do it.
"Then, I don't know, 'Will & Grace' was good and we realised that our [characters'] daughter - who was born the last year of the original show - would be leaving home and so suddenly an empty nest seemed like [something] we could write about."
Paul joked: "Plus, if we waited any longer we would be dead."
Speaking in a joint interview with 'Entertainment Tonight', Helen added: "It would be a really slow reboot."
Following her car crash, Helen was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, and her representative admitted she was shaken but didn't suffer any major injuries.
Helen returned to work on the 'Mad About You' set just a week after the incident.
