Christina and Tarek El Moussa’s marriage may have been doomed from the beginning! According to reports, the Flip or Flip hosts have always had drastically different tastes, which their hit show pushed to the surface.
“Anyone who has spent a halfway decent amount of time with them could have seen this coming. In a lot of ways they just seemed wildly incompatible,” a source told People magazine exclusively.
The couple seemed to be able to handle their differences, though, until fame hit. “The more [Christina] started to sparkle and shine, the more [Tarek] sort of regressed,” said the source.
“She has champagne tastes and he’s a beer-from-a-can kind of guy. And that was okay for a while when all they could afford was canned beer…but the money from the show meant that she started to feel like she could finally have some of the finer things in life,” the insider said.
“She didn’t really expect to become a TV star, but she wants to enjoy their success and build their brand and really likes being out there…Tarek was always more reluctant. He’d pull if off, but he was never going to be a natural.”
As Okmagazine.com readers know, the El Moussa’s have been facing a long road of challenges that led to their split. However, according to these latest reports, it seems like the couple may have been in trouble long before they even said “I do!”
