Christina El Moussa has taken to Instagram in order to taunt her estranged husband.
In a new round of revealing photos, the Flip or Flop co-host flaunts two things that Tarek El Moussa will be seeing far less off in the future, as a result of the ex-couple's pending divorce:
- Her body.
- His daughter.
The interior designer strikes quite a few poses here with her six-year-old daughter, Taylor, as mother and child done similar bikinis in new ads for L*Space Swimwear by Monica Wise.
The 33-year old is clearly having some fun with the photos, including her dog in many of them, writing silly captions on the pictures themselves and giving Taylor a donut at one point.
But it's hard not to read a lot more into these images.
Christina, of course, separated from Tarek back in May.
But the public did not learn about this separation (or the insane, gun-wielding fight that broke the relationship's back) until several months later.
Tarek and Christina released an amicable, joint statement at that time, but various tabloid sources since have painted the pair in a negative light.
Tarek has received the brunt of this bad press, most notably one story that said he often joked about raping his wife on the set of their HGTV series.
So... might Christina be sending a couple messages with these photos?
She flaunting a rather tight bikini body in each of the images, while making it clear that she has no problem exploiting adorable little Taylor, either.
“Shoot prep & playtime,” one of Christina's captions reads, while another even jokes that she's found a "new boyfriend."
Who could it be?!?

"I'm doing really good. I'm in a really good place," Christina told said earlier this month when asked about her mental state.
She added at the time:
"The kids are happy, they're healthy, Tarek and I are in a good spot. We have a lot of things that we're working on, cool things coming in the future, so we're just looking forward."
It's true that both Tarek and Christina have had nothing but positive things to say about each other when approached by reporters.
It's hard to know what's taking place behind the scenes, and we'd have to imagine Tarek won't love seeing these photos, but each star is saying the right thing in front of a camera.
"There’s a lot of false stories and a lot of hype, but in the end we’re just normal, nice people who just want to be the best parents and coworkers that we can be," Christina told People Magazine in a cover story last month.
Does she begrudge Tarek at all? Does she want him to die alone?
It doesn't sound that way.
“It is what it is and we are going through a divorce and eventually we will be dating other people," she told the same magazine, adding very simply:
"I’m happy for him and whatever steps he takes in his life and I just hope he’s happy."
We're happy looking at these pictures, Christina. Does that count for anything?
