Christina El Moussa believes in second chances… but not for her husband Tarek. The Flip or Flop star, 33, has been stepping out with a new beau, Orange County businessman Doug Spedding — and some close to her have noticed that he looks familiar. “Christina has known Doug for years, and they actually had a short romance long before Tarek came into her life,” says a longtime friend of the blonde bombshell. “He’s a really sweet guy who treats her like a queen.” While the source notes that the relationship is casual — “Christina and Tarek were married for seven years; you don’t move on from that so easily” — the real estate pro seems to be having a great time. Says the source: “Doug is a total gentleman and puts no expectations on her.”
