“Honestly, despite everything, I’m doing really, really, really good,” Christina said. “Tarek and I met 10 years ago at work and went through a market crash. We went through [Tarek’s] cancer, infertility. Now we’re going through a very public divorce, but, despite everything, our primary focus always will be our kids. We continue to work together, and there’s a lot of false stories and a lot of hype, but in the end we’re just normal, nice people who just want to be the best parents and co-workers that we can be.”
She added that she and Tarek have no plans to stop working together on the show and that all those rumors about it being a super-hostile environment because of how much they hate each other are really far from the truth.
“[We] filmed together three, four days a week and… we have a great crew. We have so much fun on set, and we look forward to continuing the show,” she said. “It’s our normal. We also run a seminar company together, Success Path, and every five weeks we go to Vegas together…. [We] have a great time, and we’ll always be working together.”
Christina El Moussa may have underestimated how crazy Flip or Flop fans can get about the show (or maybe she just likes to mess with them, and if that’s the case, I may actually like her), because an Instagram post that really was pretty innocuous sent them all into a rabid tizzy this week.
The post in question was just a group shot of El Moussa hanging with the Flip or Flop crew alongside a message thanking them for all their hard work on the series.
“I’ve never met a group of more positive, fun-loving, funny… all around amazing guys… filming 7 seasons of #FlipOrFlop has been a breeze because of them. I [heart] each and every one of you,” she wrote. Aww, that’s a sweet message.
The wording, though, was maybe not El Moussa’s best choice. It does kind of sound like she’s saying goodbye to the show’s crew, and that’s how a lot of her followers took it. Complete, all-consuming panic ensued, because a world without Flip or Flop is not a world any of these people want to live in.
But while El Moussa’s followers were filling her comment section with crying emojis, they were missing the real point of this post: She is shading the ever-living shit out of her soon-to-be-ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.
Read the post again. See that part where she says that filming seven seasons has been a breeze? SEVEN? Flip or Flop Season 8 just premiered, fam. Season 8. What she’s actually saying here is that the show was all fun and easy until now, and the divorce is ruining everything. You’re welcome for that quality piece of detective work.
