Heating up? Just days after Tarek El Moussa was spotted smooching his rumored girlfriend, Heather Rae Young, the pair was photographed looking cozier than ever while shopping in Costa Mesa, California, on Monday, August 5. While both reality TV stars — Heather appears on Selling Sunset — have yet to confirm their relationship, we suspect that things between them are more than platonic.

After all, the snapshot shows Tarek, 37, affectionately leaning toward his potential ladylove. Problem is, we’re a bit thrown by a recent statement the former Flip or Flop cohost made regarding his dating life. Basically, Tarek admitted that he was open to his ex-wife, Christina Anstead, finding him a new partner. No, we’re not kidding. 

“If she finds me the perfect specimen, then yeah,” the proud father two told Us Weekly. “That sounds great.”

Hmmm, by “perfect specimen,” we have to wonder if Tarek means someone who looks like Christina, 36. We mean, come on, she and Heather, 31, could practically be sisters. That said, we’re fairly certain Christina didn’t set the pair up. So, does this mean Tarek is trying to date more than one woman? Celebrity relationships can be pretty dizzying at times. 

To be clear, though, we think Tarek should quit while he’s ahead and totally settle down with Heather. They already make for such a sweet couple — including having a ton in common. “Tarek is very into Heather and likes her a lot … he thinks she has great, positive energy,” an insider gushed to Us Weekly on July 31. “[He] loves the fact that she’s a realtor like him and that she’s a reality star because she understands his lifestyle.” 

OK, you two, time to make things Instagram official. This love mystery has got to come to an end!
