Christina El Moussa is a 35-year-old renowned American TV personality and real estate investor, perhaps best known as a co-host of the HGTV show “Flip or Flop” alongside Tarek El Moussa, her ex-husband.

Christina Career in Real Estate

In 2011, Tarek asked one of his friends to help him create an audition video for HGTV, recorded a whole episode of how houses are flipped from the start to the end. The audition tape was not taken seriously by many people, however, Pie Town Production loved it very much, and HGTV producers were impressed by the couples’ Instagram profile photos of houses before and after renovations, and they ended up signing their company to a weekly program. This led to the creation of the series “Flip Or Flop”, which debuted in April 2013 on HGTV.

The show will not just focus on her business, as her family will also be featured in it, and every episode will give a glimpse of Christina’s real life to add some spice.
