HGTV star Tarek El Moussa has removed crew members after his outburst, berating co-star and ex-wife, Christina Haack on the Flip or Flop set was revealed.
Sources say the 40 year old house flipper was “pissed” that the story of him ridiculing his ex-wife, calling her a “crazy, washed-up loser” (amongst other insults) got out and believes it was staffer who leaked the story to news outlets.
Now El Moussa has demanded that any crew member who was working on set that day be removed from working on his HGTV spin-off series, Flipping 101.
HGTV’s Tarek El Moussa Removes Crew Members After On-Set Tirade Was Leaked
While production complied with the request/demand and shuffled staffers around, a ‘source’ has said El Moussa was less concerned with how he came off in the headlining rant, and more about his desire to work with a team that supports his relationship with fiancée, Selling Sunset’s Heather Rae Young, and who he can trust in the lead up to their upcoming wedding.
El Moussa and Young have been quite secretive about their wedding plans and the last thing the reality stars want are their private plans to go public.
Needless to say, El Moussa did NOT come off well after the spat in which he demeaned Haack, saying his new fiancé is “hotter and richer” than his ex. He also told Haack he “enjoys watching her fail” after he “made her”.
If that wasn’t douchey enough, he then exclaimed, “Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning,” before adding an ironic, “The world knows you’re crazy!”
We can only imagine how vindicated Haack felt about the leak and El Moussa’s public claims of being “super remorseful” about the altercation…or the fact that it became public- you decide.
Either way, Flipping 101 will not see the same staffers on the show as those working that fateful day on Flip or Flop. Haack’s spin-off, Christina on the Coast however…well they just may have given some certain crew members a raise!!!
