It seems that the hosts of HGTV’s “Flip of Flop” are moving on fairly well with their lives. After ending their relationship late last year, Tarek El Moussa says he is not yet seeing anyone but confirms he is open to appearing in the hit reality dating show “The Bachelor.”
The 35-year-old TV host and realtor explained in an interview with E! News his current status. “I’ve really never been single before, believe it or not,” shared Tarek. “It’s a whole new life and I am having a lot of fun. I’m just a free spirit, I’m happy, I love going on dates, I like meeting girls,” he added.
He was asked if he was dating someone, to which he responded “Not anyone specifically. Not exclusively.” Afterward, he was asked if he was open to appearing in “The Bachelor” and find a new love. “I would be open to that,” he replied. “Yeah, I would absolutely be open to that… 20 women? No problem,” he added.
The last few months have been a rollercoaster ride for Tarek and ex-wife, Christina. The two have had some controversial digs and exchanges in their Instagram posts, which certainly made some noise. Early last month, though, Christina signed for a seventh season of their show on HGTV and decided to work with Tarek anew.
A source shared that “Christina realized she and Tarek are stronger overall as a unit, but Tarek still better be on his best behavior, on and off set.” Moreover, the 33-year-old blonde and mother of two with Tarek noted money, family, and love as the reasons behind her decision, added the source.
Though Christina was hesitant at first, she eventually changed her mind once the offer was laid on the table.
Late last month, TMZ reported that the El Moussas were charged with a $37,800 lawsuit involving unpaid wages. The lawsuit was filed by Jonathan Schmier, North Carolina-based realtor who claimed to have helped the El Moussas find properties in the area. The couple allegedly did not pay him for the houses that he found in the area, which the two used in their house flipping business.
