Sealed with a kiss! Tarek El Moussa was spotted locking lips with a stunning blonde over the weekend — and she happens to look a lot like his ex, Christina Anstead. The Flip or Flop star was seen getting cozy with Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young in new photos shared by TMZ.
Tarek, 37, appeared to be in great spirits while on a boat with Heather, 31, in Redondo Beach, CA, at the Portofino Hotel and Marina. The HGTV star was all smiles and he even had his arm wrapped around Heather, who happens to be a luxury real estate agent, so these two definitely have some things in common. Another fun fact: she was also Playboy Playmate of the Month in February 2010.
The dynamic duo reportedly traveled up from Newport Beach and spent the day together. Even though they didn’t post any photos that included each other, both shared images on the same boat. Tarek was heard asking on his Instagram Stories, “What is Bad Decisions doing in Marina Del Rey?” Around the same time, she posted a photo showing the name of the boat, “Bad Decisions.”
It’s unclear if they are actually together or just enjoying getting to know each other at this point. Tarek recently opened up about his romantic life, and revealed why he was hesitant about getting serious.
“I’m just not there yet, in a personal place to take on that challenge of falling in love again because that sounds like a big mountain to climb,” he told SheKnows during an interview. “Right now, I’m just putting all my love towards my kids and every extra ounce of energy I have goes towards building my brand and just becoming better at who I am. I’m sure one day when the dust settles, I might get lonely and look for someone.”
As fans may recall, Tarek went through a very public split with his ex-wife. Tarek and Christina, 36, were married for nearly nine years before officially divorcing in January 2018. The exes share two children together, Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 3. She is now expecting a child with her new husband, Ant Anstead.
