For those who don't know the dynamic of this foursome, Christina and Tarek were married from 2009 until 2018 and welcomed sons Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, before parting ways. Despite calling it quits on their romantic relationship, they remained costars on their HGTV series, Flip or Flop, until the network announced in March that the house-flipping phenomenon wouldn't be returning for Season 11.
Christina found love again with second husband Ant Anstead, but their romance was short-lived. After tying the knot in 2018 and welcoming now-2-year-old son Hudson the following year, the coparents went their separate ways in 2020.
Meanwhile, Tarek moved on with the Selling Sunset star, who he proposed to in July 2020 on their one-year anniversary. The lovebirds wed in October 2021 and have been going strong ever since, often flaunting their love for each other on their respective social medias.
Shortly after Tarek got his happily ever after, Christina finally found her Prince Charming. Christina announced Josh proposed to her in September 2021 shortly after her divorce from Ant was finalized earlier that year.
Despite the new couples living out their seemingly perfect lives, as they portray it to be on social media, there's drama going on behind-closed-doors. Christina and Heather have been butting heads over a few issues, some of which stem from looking after the exes' kids, ever since the real estate agent came into the picture, a source claimed.
"There's been overall tension between both couples," claimed an insider of the ladies' hot and cold relationship over the past few years. "Christina feels Heather oversteps her boundaries when she parents her children and Heather doesn't feel like she gets enough respect from Christina."
