Christina Haack’s and Tarek El Moussa’s divorce didn’t mean an immediate end to their HGTV series. The Flip or Flop co-stars continued renovating homes together despite their marriage ending. Later, the Christina on the Coast star described what it felt like to work with El Moussa after their split.

Flip or Flop premiered on HGTV in 2013. At that point, Haack and El Moussa had been married for four years. Flip or Flop became a success as viewers tuned in to watch the husband and wife team renovate homes together before putting them on the market.

Then in 2018 when they divorced it seemed Flip or Flop might be no more. But Haack and El Moussa moved forward with the show, continuing to film despite their split. Ultimately, Flip or Flop ended in March 2022 after 10 seasons. 

Haack and El Moussa now have joint legal and physical custody of their two children, Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6.

Haack opened up about working with El Moussa after their divorce in May 2019. Shortly before the premiere of her HGTV show, Christina on the Coast, Haack told ET things were different on set. While viewers may have previously watched Haack get the final say on design decisions the now-38-year-old said that was no longer true. 

Asked if Flip or Flop was still very much “Christina gets whatever she wants,” Haack laughed before replying, “Not so much anymore. Nope. Party’s over.” 

“It’s much more like, kind of on my show where the spouses have different opinions,” she explained. “Before I kind of got my way more. No, no, not so much anymore,” she added with a laugh, saying that now it’s “a lot more Tarek design.” 

At the time of the interview, Haack was married to English TV presenter Ant Anstead. They tied the knot in December 2018 before welcoming a son, Hudson, in September 2019. A year later the couple announced their separation before officially divorcing in June 2021.
