The El-Moussas: Keeping The Family Business Together Despite Divorce
Although Tarek and Christina El Moussa may be in the process of dissolving their marriage, they’ve apparently decided that they’re not ready to quit making their hit HGTV show, Flip or Flop. The show debuted in April of 2013 and focused on their exploits buying and selling homes. In four years, it has become the second-highest rated program on HGTV.
It’s reported that the soon to be ex-couple wants to keep producing episodes of Flip or Flop beyond the current season, and they are currently in discussions to finalize their wishes. However, ultimately it’s not their decision but that of the HGTV network.
Other sources suggest the HGTV brass is are closely watching the show’s ratings in the new season before making any final decision, but at this point, the show’s ratings are through the roof and it has been crushing the competition in its time slot. There’s even talk of more than one spin-off, but this seems unlikely if Flip or Flop is renewed for another season.
Just a month after separating from his wife Christina, Tarek El Moussa, 36, filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences in his divorce petition and requesting joint custody of their two children. Not only did Tarek request spousal support from Christina, 33, but he also requested that the court denies her any request for spousal support. The couple married in 2009.
The El Moussas were two real estate agents trying to survive after the 2008 real estate crash cost them nearly everything. The couple started a business buying foreclosed houses in California and flipping them for a profit utilizing Tarek’s investment savvy and Christina’s designing skills.
