HGTV’s Tarek El Moussa Was Seen Kissing This Netflix Series Star

Tarek El Moussa from HGTV’s Flip or Flop has several projects going on, including his new upcoming show for the network, Flipping 101 w/Tarek El Moussa. The reality star recently hasn’t said much on his personal life, coming off his highly publicized split from ex-wife and Flip or Flop co-star Christina Anstead in 2016. That may soon change, since El Moussa was recently spotted getting cozy with a young woman who also happens to be on a real estate reality show.

In a good place with his ex

El Moussa’s personal life has been in the spotlight over the past few years, between his divorce from Anstead and battling several health issues. Though Anstead has recently remarried to Ant Anstead and is expecting a child with her new husband in September, she and El Moussa are still partners on HGTV’s Flip or Flop, and El Moussa is supportive of his ex’s new life.

“The kids and I are excited, you know, I think overall it’s great for them. And I’m glad she’s happy, and I’ll do everything I possibly can to be as great as I can be to her kid. At the end of the day, her son is gonna be the brother of my kids,” El Moussa recently told Hollywood Life.

El Moussa also told Us Weekly that his working relationship with Anstead is better than ever. “In general, it’s just easier now than it was a few years ago, going through the divorce and the separation and all that, so filming together right now is the best it’s been in a very, very long time,” he said. “The entire success of the show depends on our relationship, because if we don’t have a working relationship, we have no show, so there are some pretty good motivations to make sure that we’re doing what we need to do to continue what we’re doing.”

Recently said he’s not looking for love

El Moussa says his main focus is to be a great father to his two children from his marriage to Anstead – daughter Taylor, 8, and son Brayden, 3. The HGTV star is also full of gratitude for making a full recovery from his health issues and strives to stay strong. “Every day I wake up and I’m grateful to be alive. I’m grateful for the life I have,” El Moussa said, according to People.  “I’m grateful for my family and I’m just happy… It might sound a little crazy but I feel like everything that happened to me, happened for a reason, and I wouldn’t change it.”

According to an interview with SheKnows, El Moussa hasn’t been placing a priority on getting romantically involved with anyone. “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,” he said. “I’m sure one day when the dust settles, I might get lonely and look for someone.”

Maybe the dust has settled …

It appears that El Moussa may be ready to move on. According to People, he was recently seen with Heather Young, fellow real estate agent and star of Netflix’s Selling Sunset. People reported that the two were spotted at the Portofino Hotel & Marina in Redondo Beach, California on Sunday, with photographs obtained by TMZ of the couple kissing and cuddling on a yacht.

E! Online reports that Young has been successful working for The Oppenheim Group as a luxury real estate agent, which is featured on the Netflix series. Young also models and and was named Playboy‘s Playmate of the Month several years ago. 

No word yet on whether El Moussa and Young are getting serious, so fans will have to stay tuned!

The next season of HGTV’s Flip or Flop airs on August 1, the same day as Tarek’s Flip Side, a new digital series showcasing El Moussa’s personal life that will be available on the HGTV app,, on demand across all platforms, HGTV Facebook and HGTV’s YouTube channel.
