Us Magazine reported today that Heather Rae Young isn’t ashamed of her photoshoot for Playboy Magazine at all. Heather, who’s most famous for her role as a real estate agent on Selling Sunset, says she’s not mad at her choices.
In a May interview, the 32-year-old actress said it was an “amazing experience,” to be featured as Miss February in 2010. According to the reality star, if she hadn’t posed for Playboy, she never would’ve met the people who helped her with her career.
A big part of her career now, Young explained, is the fact that she has to meet a lot of fans. And her photoshoot with Playboy definitely helped with that, because it prepared her for the fans of today.
She added, “I take photos with everyone,” before going on to say that it definitely changed her life.
Young says that eventually, she had to change her career path from being a model to a real estate agent. The star claims she studied very hard, passed the test, and after just three months of doing real estate, she managed to sell a $7.2 million house and a $1.5 million condo.
Just a few years later, in 2014, the California native began working with the Oppenheim Group, the organization on which Selling Sunset is currently based.
In the past, Young shared, it was challenging to be a Playboy model and also a real estate agent because she had to challenge men’s preconceived notions about her. Young says that many men were shocked to see she was so smart, and would often say as much.
These days, she’s been dating the HGTV star, Tarek El Moussa, whom she started seeing last year in July. Just nine months after, the couple decided to move in together. The 38-year-old reality star said to Us Weekly back in March that they’re probably going to get married soon.
As fans of Flip or Flip know, he and Christina Anstead were married from 2009 until 2016. They finalized their divorce in August 2019.
