There are no plans to film a new season of the hit HGTV show Flip or Flop after Season 7 airs later this year, In Touch has exclusively learned from five sources. The production company is not shooting Season 8 now, which normally it would be doing if HGTV had plans to air it.
“They won’t go beyond what they’ve already shot. There will be only the spin-off shows with the new couples in different cities,” a high-level network source reveals. “Christina El Moussa and Tarek El Moussa won’t be filming more episodes. Season 7 is their last.”
In Touch has also exclusively learned that Christina is looking to land her own show: “She’s shopping an interior design show around,” an insider says.
“She’s drawing a lot of interest and feels HGTV will let her out of her contract. She has impressed several people at other networks who can give her a new show. They think she’s a hot commodity,” the insider says.
Though ratings are up for Flip or Flop’s Season 6 (the finale airs on March 30), so is the off-set drama. After the world finally learned in December about Tarek and Christina’s secret May split, the two struggled to put on a united front as stories reported exclusively by In Touch revealed Tarek’s rehab stint last summer and his abusive on-set behavior toward Christina.
The insider says Christina has no plans to return to the show now that she’s decided to go out on her own.
HGTV refused to say the show will film a Season 8. “Flip or Flop still is in active production on Season 7 of the series. No additional new info to share beyond that statement,” a spokesperson from the network said when In Touch asked for comment.
