Tarek and Christina El Moussa’s heartbreaking split is the talk of the town, but we like to focus on the positive instead. So, let’s take a walk down memory lane and revisit all the fun and happy times the ‘Flip Or Flop’ couple have shared. Here are 5 things to know!
1. They’re pretty, smart, and business savvy.
Tarek, 35, and Christina El Moussa, 32, are one of the most attractive couples on television. You wouldn’t expect two people in real estate to be so good looking, but here they are! As husband and wife, they’re also each other’s business partner on the home-improvement show Flip Or Flop.
2. They found love in a hopeless place.
As two career-driven individuals, it’s only natural that they met AT WORK. Getting out of bed and going to the office is usually a drag, but for Tarek and Christina, the real-estate station was like heaven on Earth. “We started our relationship working together,” confessed Christina.
3. The success of Flip Or Flop was a total shock.
Tarek admitted in past interviews that he NEVER expected to be on TV, especially with his wife. Then one day, just for fun, Tarek asked a buddy to film a random demo video. That project quickly snowballed into Flip Or Flop, but it did take awhile for the show to catch on with viewers.
4. The show’s network had some doubts.
Tarek and Christina surprised everybody, including the HGTV channel, with its epic ratings. Producers were nervous as to how the audience would respond to a show about flipping houses, but their doubts were quickly cast aside. The show became a hit!
5. OK, time for one piece of bad news…
Ugh, it breaks our heart to say this, but Tarek and Christina are no more. The couple decided to separate on Dec. 13 after an explosive fight took place inside their home. Here’s some good news though, they will continue to work together on the show!
