Sad day for HGTV lovers, as “Flip or Flop” stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa have announced they will be getting divorced.
As much as this comes as a shock to us invested reality tv watchers, it appears the couple have been in turmoil for a while. Trouble started in May when deputies responded to “a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun” at the couples home. Eleven deputies and a helicopter responded to the scene.
According to witnesses, Tarek was seen taking a gun from his safe, going out the back door and running down a hiking trail. Shortly after, Christina was seen running out of the house crying, shaking, and visibly distraught.
That’s when the helicopter spotted Tarek on a trail and deputies ordered him to drop the gun. Tarek told deputies he had no intention of hurting himself, but rather wanted to “blow off some steam,” and brought the gun in case of mountain lions and rattlesnakes. When deputies went into the house, they seized five guns in total.
The couple addresses this horrible incident as an “unfortunate misunderstanding,” and “will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together.”
I’m not sure what that means for the show, but it’s just another example to us that we never really know what goes on behind closed (and very well decorated) doors..
