Tarek El Moussa has a temper.

This point cannot really be debated.

A few weeks after allegedly unleashing his anger on his ex-wife, meanwhile, insiders now claim the reality star is focusing on someone else:

The person(s) who alerted the media to this vicious takedown.

Flipping 101

Last month, multiple outlets reported that Tarek blew up at the mother of his two kids, Christina, on the set of their HGTV program, Flip or Flop.

(The former spouses divorced in 2017, but have continued to co-host this series despite their break-up.)

According to TMZ and other celebrity gossip sites, Christina signaled to Tarek that it was time to start shooting a scene and, supposedly, that’s all it took for a switch to be flipped.

Tarek allegedly compared Christina her to his new fiancée, Heather Rae Young, who he claimed is much "hotter" and "richer" than his ex-wife.

Tarek added that he "made" Christina famous, and referred to her as a "washed-up loser."

To close out his rant, Tarek scrreamed "Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning" and capped everything off by yelling at Christina:

"The world knows you’re crazy!"

Yikes, huh?!?

The same source who broke this story in July explained that Tarek has been upset with his ex ever since Christina confessed to smoking toad venom with her new boyfriend.


Because Tarek concerned over how this sort of drug use will impact his young son and daughter.

He and Christine share custody of the kids.

Flip or Flop Stars on TV

Fast forward just over a month since this confrontation went viral and it’s notable that Tarek hasn’t denied any aspect of the story.

He has, however, reportedly responded to the leaking of story behind the scenes.

After the original TMZ article came out that detailed what went down between Tarek and Christina… the former demanded that any crew member who had been working on the day of the argument on Flip or Flip NOT be assigned to his spinoff show, Flipping 101.

To be clear, it doesn’t sound as if Tarek is asking HGTV to actually fire anyone.

He just doesn’t want anyone who was around for his diatribe against Christine to also go and work for his next series — because, let’s face it, someone on the Flip or Flop set must have leaked the fight to the press, you know?

On a related note, Tarek also made this request, TMZ writes, because he wants employees around who are loyal to him and fiancee Heather Rae Young.

He doesn’t want any spoilers to be revealed about their impending wedding.

As for where things stand between Tarek and Christina?

“They argue in front of the HGTV crew, who are walking on eggshells around them and feel they’re being pushed to take sides,” an insider previously said, adding the obvious:

It’s “beyond awkward” for the cast and crew.

This In Touch Weekly source concluded that the HGTV personalities "pretend they’re friendly exes for the cameras …when, in reality?

They "can’t stand each other."
