The reality star's current design series will follow what happened in her life in 2018, telling Entertainment Tonight that audiences will watch her "selling my house, on a house hunt in Newport Beach, getting engaged, my wedding will be the finale." In the premiere episode, the HGTV star had made the decision to put her beautiful Yorba Linda house — that she once shared with her ex — on the market. 

“This is the authentic me, unfiltered, just how I want to do a show,” she told People about the new HGTV series. “I’m an executive producer. I help write every script. I approve everything. It’s just been an incredible experience.” Christina has since moved on from her ex with a new man and current husband Ant Anstead. 

So, while the reality star was building a new life and another HGTV show, what happened to former spouse Tarek?

Moving on from his very public 2016 split, Tarek said, “I completely rebuilt myself over the last two and a half years. Who I am, how I feel, how I think... I know what’s good for me.” Adding, “I have a new life and a bright future.”

Is the HGTV series Flip or Flop over?

The mother-of-two also revealed that it is still undecided if Season 8 will be their last. "Everything's sort of up in the air. So we'll see how everything does this summer and go from there,” she told the outlet.
