‘Flip or Flop’
Divorce: Christina El
Moussa Says She Still
Loves Ex Tarek
We wonder what Gary Anderson will think of this!
“I’ve never met a group of more positive, fun-loving, funny… all-around amazing guys,” she captioned the shot. “Filming seven seasons of Flip or Flop has been a breeze because of them. I [love] each and every one of you.”

The decision to keep filming the reality show came after HGTV threatened to sue the couple for breach of contract if they abandoned their successful home-flipping show because of their impending divorce.
“This is getting really ugly,” a network source previously told In Touch. “HGTV is livid with Tarek and Christina. Flip or Flop just won’t be the same if they’re not together, so execs desperately want them to reunite to save the show. If they can’t do that, the network wants them to make it seem like they’re getting along at least until their contract is over. They were given an ultimatum: Either finish out your contracts or we’ll take you to court [for breach of contract].”
While the two may be saving face for the sake of their show and their brand, things aren’t exactly going great behind closed doors — partially because of Christina’s relationship with Gary, who was first hired by the couple as a contractor to work on their pool.
“It’s hard for Tarek to see Christina dating, but it’s even worse that Gary is the guys she’s with,” an insider tells In Touch, exclusively. “There’s nothing that could be more upsetting to Tarek than to see her with a guy who is like him but better — and that’s Gary. He’s in the same industry as Tarek, but he’s older and more established and has more money.”
