As fans of Flip or Flop know, Christina El Moussa and Tarek El Moussa broke up two years ago, the result of which was dramatic for both of them. Especially for Tarek, who had the cops called on him because he went for a hike in the mountain-lion filled hills with a gun to protect himself.
It was a challenging experience for Christina too, who has recently come to terms with the downfall of her marriage. During a chat with People Magazine, Christina, 34, said she was “doing whatever I could to stay above water and just get through the day.”
Back in 2016, after they had an argument, Tarek, 36, left their home with a gun and went for a walk in a national park, leading to a helicopter and 11 officers arriving at the scene.
It was a messy situation, indeed, resulting in a popular reality series hanging in precariousness. El Moussa said, “a lot of people were thinking, ‘What’s going to happen?'”
Tarek and Christina built a life together. They had a television show, real estate, children, and a house. It was incredibly stressful to break all of that up, and it was publicized in the media, making a private situation public.
Even though their breakup was hard, Christina and Tarek persisted, and their children together, Taylor, and Brayden, 7, and 2, managed to get through it.
According to the reality star, who is now dating Ant Anstead, they managed to build something better than what they had before. Now that the divorce is in her rearview mirror, so to speak, Christina is now looking toward the next part of her life.
The Flip or Flop alum explained that she’s got a new TV show, a new boyfriend, and a prospering career. “For the first time in a long time, I feel at peace,” the reality star remarked.
