Tarek and Christina El Moussa have returned to the set of Flip or Flop and according to insiders the filming was a nightmare.
After their divorce announcement the former couple has come back to filming the reality TV show and “the first week back filming has not been easy,” claims a production source. “The bitterness between the two of them has caused the crew to have to do so many retakes and reshoots.”
Tarek and Christina split in May amidst allegations that Christina had cheated with family friend Gary Anderson. A few weeks ago, Tarek filed for a divorce.
The show took a short break but now they are back at work and the tensions are obvious.
“Tarek and Christina used to share everything, but now they require to each have their own trailers, dressing rooms and team,” shared the insider.
“This will be the last season that two are going to film together. It is already really, really messy.”
Their attitudes and overall demeanor while filming is making the crew of Flip or Flop absolutely miserable. The way they interact during filming has made everybody really uncomfortable and behind the scenes is really a nightmare situation that no one can escape.
Their split has been not even close to friendly and it’s only natural that pretending to want to be in each other’s presence is really difficult.
“Tarek and Christina are still filming and flipping homes together despite their divorce, however they are simply not comfortable together. The tension on set is high and the entire crew is walking on eggshells every time Tarek and Christina are on location together,” claims a source.
“Tarek and Christina are not in a good place and do everything they can to avoid each other. When not working, they spend as little time together as possible. There is some bad blood and at this point there seems to be no chance of reconciliation,” added the insider.
According to a HGTV spokesman: “We are currently in production for season seven of Flip or Flop, with the new episodes slated to air on HGTV this summer. Ultimately, the production timeline is dependent on construction schedules and final sales of the featured homes.”
“We admire and appreciate Tarek and Christina’s great work on Flip or Flop. When it comes to matters related to their own family, we respect their privacy and honor any decision that works best for them and their children. HGTV is currently airing episodes of Flip or Flop and the series will continue production as scheduled.”
