Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and Sean Stewart have decided to mix business with pleasure.

"This started as a business relationship, and now we're casually dating," Adrienne tells People about Sean. "It's casual, real casual." 

Adrienne, who is 51, doesn't sound concerned with the fact that Sean is, y'know, only 32.

Sean is "a lot more mature than a lot of 60-year-olds at this time in his life," she points out.

"I'm a modern business woman," Adrienne continues. "I don't think of age."  

As it turns out, the fact that they both come from famous families has helped them connect.

"He understands my world, the entertainment industry and being a public figure," Adrienne explains.

She also points out that his partying ways are well behind him. "That was when he was a young kid," she says. "He's been clean and sober for years." 

And there is one rumor Adrienne wants to clear up: "We are not living together. He has his own place. He has a nice place." 

As for Sean's father, Rod Stewart, Adrienne has nothing but positive things to say about him, too. "His dad is lovely," she says. "A very nice person." 

You go, Adrienne!
