Tarek El Moussa sure has a type, doesn’t he?

Not that we can blame the guy when said type can basically be summed up as follows:

Strong buinesswoman who is sort of famous, blonde and very pretty.

Tarek El Moussa and her

This sums up Tarek’s ex-wife, of course, Flip or Flop co-star Christina El Moussa. (Now Christina Anstead following her recent marriage.)

But it also sums up Heather Rae Young, the star of a Netflix reality show titled Selling Sunset.

On Sunday afternoon, the real estate gurus were seen on the deck of a yacht, cuddling up and swapping some significiant spit, according to TMZ and other sources.

This yacht was docked at the Portofino Hotel & Marina in Redondo Beach, California and the pair reportedly traveled together up from Newport Beach, to spent the day together.

So, what’s the deal between these two?

A source tells us that 37-year-old Tarek is "slowly" starting to date following his 2016 split from Christina — which remains one of the friendlist divorces in Hollywood history – but that things with Young are casual.

Like, VERY casual.

"Tarek and Heather have recently started hanging out, but it’s nothing serious nor official," explains an E! News insider.

Young is an employee of the high-end real-estate firm The Oppenheim Group in Los Angeles.

She has also worked as a professional model in the past — and was chosen to be Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in February 2010.

That’s quite the diverse resume, huh?

Since finalizing his divorce from Christina in early 2018, Tarek has yet to go public with a new girlfriend.

In fact, the HGTV star confirmed during a recent Today appearance that despite having fun playing the field, he didn’t foresee getting into a new relationship for "quite some time."

On the other end of the romantic spectrum, Christina has since remarried Ant Anstead … and is currently pregnant with their first child!

She and Tarek continue to co-parent their daughter Taylor and son Brayden, having made it clear ever since they ended their marriage that those kids were their first prority at all  times.

They also continue to work together.

Christina and Tarek El Moussa on HGTV

Tarek and Christina’s latest season of Flip or Flop returns Augugst 1 at 9/8c on HGTV.

“We’ve been working together for a really long time,” Tarek told People Magazine last summer of the former couple’s dynamic as business partners. “It’s our job. Obviously, we know each other really well.”

For his part, El Moussa is also gearing up to star in a 14-episode HGTV series called Flipping 101 w/Tarek El Moussa.

“I’ve successfully flipped over 300 houses,” El Moussa said in a promo for the new show, adding:

“Along the way, I’ve seen every mistake there is to make.

"Now, I’m out to help novice flippers get through their projects unscathed. I’m going to show them how to take the worst of the worst and make a mountain of money turning them into the best on the block.”
