The former couple still co-star on their HGTV show Flip or Flop
Reality TV stars Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead finalised their divorce in January 2018, but continue to star in their show Flip or Flop much to the surprise of the viewers. While an announcement was made for the HGTV show’s upcoming season that premieres on Thursday, October 15, fans went to the comment section to show their support to Tarek and Christina.
“Admire and respect you, bro…can still work with your ex-wife,” said one user. Tarek, 39, responded, “Appreciate it.” Another user said, “I love that you guys can be friends and work so well together,” to which he replied with a smiley face emoji.
Tarek and Christina, 37, continue to coparent their two children Taylor and Brandon, aside from working together. But that doesn’t mean they don’t spend all the time together. Tarek is currently engaged to model, actor and real estate agent Heather Rae Young and said he didn’t invite his ex for his upcoming wedding.
“No, no exes at the wedding,” he said to Entertainment Tonight, adding that it’s going to be small, with less distractions, more intimate, and with better conversations with the people around them. He said that they both believed that smaller is better. Tarek and Heather, 33, started dating in 2019 and are planning their wedding for summer 2021.
Meanwhile Christina is going through a divorce, and she and her estranged husband Ant Anstead announced their separation on September 18. A source told Life & Style that Christina and Ant started having marriage troubles recently and friends got to know it, but didn’t expect it to end in a split. The sources added that everyone was really shocked that it has come to this. Christina will be continuing to co-parent her son Hudson with Ant, and his children from a previous marriage.
