Ever since they announced their split, Tarek and Christina El Moussa have been in the news more for their tumultuous divorce than they have been for Flip or Flop; the HGTV show that made them famous. Today, Tarek and Christina are back in the new for the same reasons — because there’s more dating drama.
It almost seems like Flip or Flop is going by the wayside, and Tarek and Christina are getting famous for their drama.
In any event, according to E! Online, the Flip or Flop stars are taking to the blogosphere to talk about Christina’s new man. Christina has been dating a few different men, including the couple’s former contractor, since she and Tarek split, but this one is special because she used to date this guy before she dated and ultimately married Tarek.
“Christina El Moussa is stepping her feet in the dating pool. With summer quickly approaching, E! News has learned the Flip or Flop star recently started seeing someone she used to date before Tarek El Moussa. While the complete identity of this new man remains private, Entertainment Tonight reported that he is an Orange County businessman named Doug.”
Well, let’s hope things fare better for Doug and Christina the second time around.
Of course, it didn’t take long for the press to seize the offensive and ask the other half of the Flip or Flop duo, Tarek El Moussa, what he thought of the new man in his ex-wife’s life.
Tarek went on Andy Cohen’s radio show, where he was immediately asked about Christina’s new boyfriend, according to People Magazine, and he didn’t seem too happy about it.
“Flip or Flop’s Christina El Moussa is dating again — just don’t tell her ex Tarek about it! “We’re going through this divorce thing, we’re working together, I just really don’t want to know what’s going on with her personal life,” Tarek told Andy Cohen on the Bravo host’s SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy, on Wednesday.”
Tarek, however, also admitted to dating other people himself, which makes it rather funny that he’s taking Christina to task for moving on with her life. However, he swears that the women he’s dating “aren’t his girlfriends,” and he doesn’t think he’ll be getting a serious girlfriend anytime soon.
Hey, if it makes you happy, Tarek, it can’t be that bad.
But the good news about it is, there’s no hate in the hearts of the Flip or Flop stars for one another. And that’s all for the better, considering the couple has two children together.
According to Radar Online, Tarek El Moussa went on to say, in this same interview, that he doesn’t carry any hate in his heart for Christina, and he hopes his now ex-wife feels the same way about him.
Unfortunately, however, it seems like Tarek is still going through a cancer battle, which seems to be back with a vengeance.
“Tarek El Moussa is still dealing with his thyroid and testicular cancers — and the wrath of his ex! The Flip or Flop star appeared on Radio Andy with Andy Cohen, and told the Watch What Happens Live host, “to this day, the aftermath of cancer never goes away.” Tarek, 35, explained that he had to get one of his testicles removed after he was diagnosed — and has a “fake ball” to replace it! “I asked for an extra large one,” he joked, adding that his friends call him the “one nut wonder” now.”
It’s good that he seems to be making light of his situation, if nothing else.
