Is there a new man in Kendra Wilkinson‘s life?

After a photo of Wilkinson and Bachelor in Paradise star Chad Johnson holding hands emerged on TMZ, speculation began to spiral that the pair is dating.

But despite the hand-holding snap, a source says that Wilkinson and Johnson — who appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season 12 of The Bachelorette and currently stars on MTV’s Ex on the Beach — were only together because they taped something for work.

“Kendra and Chad know each other and have hung out before,” a second source tells PEOPLE. “They’re just having fun and she’s really not looking to get into a serious relationship.”

The second source adds, “She’s feeling confident and healthy, but is still healing from her marriage. She’s open to casually dating though.”

Wilkinson, 33, filed for divorce from Baskett, 36, in April 2018 after nearly nine years of marriage. The same day she filed, Baskett responded with his filing and mirrored her documents. Both cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, listed their date of separation as Jan. 1, 2018, and requested joint legal and physical custody of their two children: son Hank IV, 8, and daughter Alijah Mary, 4.

The former Playboy model’s filing came hours after she confirmed in an Instagram post that they’d broken up.

“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways,” she captioned a photo of herself and Baskett.

“I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because I did believe in forever, that’s why I said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile,” she continued.

In October, Wilkinson gave an update on the status of their split, saying she signed her “last divorce paper.”

Since their split, the reality star hasn’t shied away from meeting new people — and dipping her toes back into the dating pool.

“Kendra’s been talking to a bunch of different guys and having fun after her split,” a source told PEOPLE about the Kendra On Top star in September. “She’s playing the field and enjoying the dating scene again after everything she and Hank went through.”
