Christina Hall, Tarek El Moussa Finding TV Success Without Each Other

  • Christina Hall and Tarek El Moussa’s show “Flip or Flop” ended in 2022.
  • But their independent HGTV shows just got renewed for new seasons.
  • They starred on “Flip or Flop” for 11 years together, both during and after their marriage.

Exes Christina Hall and Tarek El Moussa are proving they truly aren’t better together. 

In July, HGTV announced that both Hall’s, 40, and El Moussa’s, 41, original shows on the network have been renewed for new seasons. 

The network ordered 12 new episodes of Hall’s docuseries “Christina on the Coast” and six new episodes of its sister show “Christina in the Country,” according to a press release shared with Insider.

On the shows, Hall helps homeowners in Southern California and Franklin, Tennessee, renovate their houses, and she shows viewers glimpses of her life with her husband, Josh Hall, and her children. She’s also currently appearing on HGTV’s “Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge.”

Hall and El Moussa are parents to Taylor, 12, and Brayden, 7, and Hall also has a 3-year-old, Hudson, from her marriage to Ant Anstead. 

Like Hall, El Moussa will be returning to TV screens — alongside his wife, Heather Rae El Moussa, 35 — with a new, 14-episode season of  “The Flipping El Moussas,” as stated in a press release shared with Insider.

The series shows the couple flipping houses in Southern California and raising their family. In addition to Taylor and Brayden, they welcomed their son Tristan in January. 

Hall’s and El Moussa’s independent success on the network comes over a year after HGTV confirmed in a statement to Insider that “Flip or Flop” was ending in March 2022 after 10 seasons.

“Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack are long-time, fan-favorite stars on HGTV and it’s true that ‘Flip or Flop’ is coming to an end after an epic 10-season run as a top-rated unscripted series,” a representative for HGTV said in the statement to Insider.

“More than 90 million viewers have watched the popular series since its premiere in 2013,” the statement went on to say.

People‘s Mackenzie Schmidt reported at the time that the show was ending because the set had become “too intimate” for the exes, who were married from 2009 to 2018.

“Tarek and Christina are generally cordial. They’re co-parenting and nothing gets in the way of that,” the unnamed source told People. “The show was just too intimate of a setting at this point and it was time to close that chapter.”

People also reported that the two got into a fight on the set of the show in July 2021, with El Moussa telling his ex-wife she was a “washed-up loser.”

Tensions between the former spouses seemed to mount after the series ended. On May 6, 2022, Heather Rae El Moussa appeared to confirm on the “Selling Sunset” reunion that her husband called her a “hotter, richer version” of Hall during his and Hall’s July 2021 argument, and the next day, the El Moussas and Halls were photographed arguing on the sidelines of one of Brayden’s soccer games.

But on May 11, 2022, the pair released a joint statement saying that they had resolved an issue.

“A personal matter was discussed and has since been resolved. We are focused on co-parenting as a team moving forward,” the statement said. 

By the time the final episode of “Flip or Flop” aired in December 2022, Hall and El Moussa appeared to have a cordial relationship. In the episode, they reminisced on their time filming the series together and voiced their appreciation for one another.

“I am super proud of what we did together, and I understand your careful budgeting got us where we are today,” Hall told El Moussa on the show.

The new seasons of Hall’s and El Moussa’s shows are set to premiere in 2024.

Representatives for Christina Hall and Tarek El Moussa did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
