Christina El Moussa Opens Up About Humble 'Flip or Flop' Beginnings With Ex Tarek: 'We Had No Money'
By Alex Ungerman
Christina El Moussa is opening up about the early days of Flip or Flop with estranged husband Tarek El Moussa.
The 33-year-old reality star was a featured panelist at the 2017 Real Estate Wealth Expo in Chicago on Sunday, sharing the appearance on Instagram with the caption, "Had so much fun presenting at the real estate expo ... now back to Cali... out Chicago ❤️ Thank you so much for the beautiful hair and makeup."
During the event, Christina discussed her beginnings with the HGTV house-flipping show that she started with Tarek.
"We had no money," Christina said, according to E! News. "Tarek told me we were going to get a TV show ... He made me follow him around with a little video camera that we borrowed. And we did all the work ourselves."
Christina and Tarek announced their divorce in December, following a highly public incident last May. The two share a 6-year-old daughter, Taylor, a 1-year-old son, Brayden, and for now, are continuing on with their popular show.
"We're actually getting along really, really well right now," Christina told ET last month, adding that the former couple has figured out how to work together amicably by "letting go of past resentment, living in the future and remembering that kids are the priority."
