The duo managed to pull off the herculean task of firmly keeping their personal life out of their working relationship
Working with your ex can be a very tricky affair. But popular HGTV hosts, Tarek El Moussa and his former wife, Christina Haack, make it seem like a breeze. Moussa and Haack are the hosts of one of the most-watched HGTV series 'Flip or Flop'.
When 'Flip or Flop' first premiered in 2013, Moussa and Haack were a happily married couple with a toddler. The couple began tasting success as they managed to flip houses successfully, but their personal life was slowly falling apart. In 2016, the couple separated after Moussa left their family home with a gun in his backpack.
This incident left Haack concerned about her husband's safety and mental state. Shortly after this, they separated. In 2017, Moussa filed for divorce. The duo managed to pull off the herculean task of firmly keeping their personal life out of their working relationship. This helped them to remain great co-hosts on their popular HGTV show despite their divorce. Read on to know all about Haack and Moussa.
Tarek El Moussa
Tarek El Moussa is a successful real estate agent who began flipping houses and selling these properties when he was just 21 in Orange County. Moussa was selling multi-million dollar mansions when the real-estate market was booming, but when it crashed in 2008, Moussa's life changed dramatically.
He had to move out of his $6,000 per month home to a $700 per month apartment. This inspired him to divert his attention from just selling homes to flipping distressed properties and later reselling them for a huge profit. Moussa and his ex-wife Haack regularly purchase homes up for foreclosures and short-sales in cash. Moussa swears by the motto "No Risk, No Reward!"
He is currently engaged to 'Selling Sunset' star Heather Rae Young. He also has his own HGTV show called 'Flipping 101'.
Christina Haack is a real estate shark, who works with her ex-husband to find and renovate homes. She handles the interior designs of the new spaces. Apart from 'Flip or Flop,' Christina is also the host of HGTV's 'Christina on the Coast,' that she hosts solo.
She is also the author of 'The Wellness Remodel: A Guide to Rebooting How You Eat, Move, and Feed Your Soul' that she penned along with co-author Cara Clark. She has two children with Moussa named Brayden and Taylor El Moussa. Post her divorce from Moussa, she married Ant Anstead, a British television presenter. Anstead and she have a child together named Hudson Anstead. The couple announced their split and filed for divorce in November 2020.
