El Moussa thanked his fans for their support
Though he continues to appear on Flip or Flop with his ex-wife and also has a new digital series, Tarek’s Flip Side, premiering August 1, El Moussa is thrilled to be getting his own HGTV show.
“This is one of the biggest announcements of my life!!!” he wrote on Instagram.
“Without YOU none of this would be my reality so thank you!!!” he added. “Thank you @hgtv and all my fans for always supporting and believing in me…I couldn’t have done it without you.”
A difficult few years for El Moussa
For El Moussa, getting a new show is an important step in moving forward after a difficult period in his life, he shared with his Instagram followers.
“The last few years have been extremely difficult on me and this is a huge accomplishment for me,” he wrote.
El Moussa and his wife Christina divorced in 2018 after nearly a decade of marriage. During a recent appearance on RuPaul, he admitted that he “wasn’t expecting” the breakup. He also battled thyroid cancer and testicular cancer several years ago. Both experiences “completely broke me,” he said. “It was the most miserable experience of my life.”
But there was a silver lining, El Moussa explained. “It gave me an opportunity to reevaluate who I am and who I want to be. It really made me a better person … I am the strongest version of myself I’ve ever been.”
