Christina is opening up about her divorce from Tarek two years after their separation.
“I felt like I was drowning,” she told to People. “I was doing whatever I could to stay above water and just get through the day.”
The pair have amicably decided to co-parent their two children daughter, Taylor, 7, and son, Brayden, 2.
Tarek and Christina divorced after an incident in 2016 when Tarek left their home while carrying a gun and ran to a national park which led to 11 policemen and a helicopter fleeing to the scene.
The HGTV reality star has decided to look towards the future and leave old wounds to heal. “I thought of this year like a rebuild,” she says. “So I’m starting from scratch. I’m moving, I have a new TV show, a new boyfriend—there’s a lot of projects going on. I’m just so happy, and for the first time in a long time, I feel at peace, which is such a good feeling.”
