It was a total flop.
Tarek El Moussa confirmed he got into a heated fight with ex-wife Christina Haack on the set of “Flip or Flop” over the summer, admitting they had some “choice words” for each other.
“Christina and I, we worked together, wow, for over 10 years now and we’ve been working together as exes for five years now,” he recently told E!’s “Daily Pop.” “As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides and I’m sure we both wish the whole thing never happened.”
He added, “I mean, I certainly do, but I mean, honestly, since we got into that little disagreement a few months back, I’ve just decided that moving forward, never again.”
El Moussa, 40, stressed that he still has love for Haack, with whom he shares two children, and that he wouldn’t want a situation like that to arise again in the future.
“I never want to go through that ever again, I never want her to go through that again,” he said. “I know one day our kids are going to be older and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it’s really important to me.
“The whole thing just sucked for everyone involved.”
In July, El Moussa allegedly flipped out at Haack on the set of their HGTV show after he disapproved of the way she signaled to him that it was time to get to work.
Production sources told TMZ at the time that he allegedly compared Haack to his current fiancée, Heather Rae Young, saying Young is hotter and wealthier than Haack. Sources also claimed he bragged that he “made” Haack and called her a “washed-up loser.”
“Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning,” he had reportedly yelled at her, adding, “The world knows you’re crazy!”
Things seemly blew over fast as Haack took to social media the next day to share that she had a “nice day” on set.
Haack and El Moussa finalized their divorce in Jan. 2018 after officially breaking up in Dec. 2016 following an incident involving a gun and a 911 call. They share daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5.
Haack remarried Ant Anstead, with whom she has a third child, but they divorced after three years in June 2021.
Meanwhile, El Moussa proposed to the “Selling Sunset” star in Summer 2020.
