Flip or Flop stars, Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead are no longer married, but the pair have been working hard to maintain a friendly relationship. Clearly, it has worked, and the former flames appear to be just as in sync as exes as they were as a married couple. In fact, they have apparently chosen to deal with heartbreak by buying the same luxury item. Tarek purchased a yacht after his split from Anstead, and Anstead just purchased her own boat following the announcement of her divorce from Ant Anstead

Tarek and Christina are still filming together, despite their divorce

Fans first met El Moussa and Anstead a decade ago. When they first started Flip or Flop, they were happily married. When their relationship soured, the media followed their every move. Their divorce initially looked like it was going to be a true battle, but they quickly got on the same page.

While the pair are no longer romantically linked to each other, they continue to film their HGTV show together and are amicably co-parenting their two children. In fact, the former flames appear downright friendly. It even looks like Anstead is taking a page out of El Moussa’s book on how to deal with the end of a relationship.

El Moussa may have found happiness with Heather Rae Young, but shortly after his split from Anstead, he was reportedly in a pretty rough place. El Moussa recently opened up about his split from his ex and business partner, stating that it “nearly killed him,” according to E!

While El Moussa had difficulty coming to terms with his divorce, he had no problem parting with some funds to make himself feel a little better. In September 2017, he purchased a 50-foot yacht worth nearly $1 million. El Moussa named the boat “Bad Decisions.”

Christina followed Tarek’s lead and just did the same amid her split from Ant Anstead  

Anstead announced her split from British television personality, Ant Anstead late last month, shocking fans and even friends. From everything that has been said thus far, it would appear the decision was not mutual. In a statement, Ant stated, “I have remained silent while holding on to hope. I never gave up on us. I pray Christina’s decision brings her happiness.” The pair had been married for just two years.

Anstead doesn’t seem interested in crying over the end of her relationship, though. Instead, she is buying luxury goods. Like her ex, Anstead has purchased a luxury yacht, and its name appears to be related to the divorce proceedings. The vessel is named “Aftermath,” according to Anstead’s Instagram
