The man admitted that working with his former wife after they put an end to their marriage was not at all easy! In fact, Tarek El Moussa says that being on Flip or Flop with Christina was just like ‘pulling teeth!’ Yikes!
As fans know, Tarek is currently working on her own HGTV show but also continues to appear on the series that made him famous.
Now that it’s been a while since things ended, Tarek got candid about his experience going through a divorce with Christina and continuing to work together at the same time.
He tells HollywoodLife that nowadays, it’s much easier, but it took time for the exes to find the balance needed.
‘It’s been two and a half years since we split and we work together every day. Let’s be honest — It was like pulling teeth at the beginning. I don’t care what anyone says. It was awful.’
‘But two and a half years later, we are used to it. She is re-married. We are doing our job, and we have separate lives, separate careers, and it is our job. We have been doing it so long it is kind of normal,’ the man explained to the news outlet.
Christina indeed tied the knot with British TV host Ant Antstead, just last month, a couple of days before Christmas!
The wedding came as a surprise since they’d only dated for a year.
As for Tarek, he is excited to release his own HGTV show since at the moment, he is shooting the pilot.
The Flip or Flop spin-off is set to have Tarek coaching beginner flippers on how to successfully make a profit from this business.
Tarek is pretty much an expert at this point since he’s done around 300 houses.
