Christina El Moussa    

Realty Expert & Co-Star of HGTV's "Flip or Flop"

Christina Anstead (formerly El Moussa) is a real estate investor and TV personality. She co-stars on HGTV's show "Flip or Flop" alongside her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa. She has become successful at a real estate investment strategy called "house flipping". Flip or Flop shows the ex-couple's ups and downs of their house flipping business and bits of their personal lives.

Anstead is a real estate shark. In the show, Anstead, also a real estate agent, works with Tarek to find and renovate homes. She handles the designs of the new spaces and keeps everything on schedule. Her experience as a real estate agent helps to steer the business into a stable direction as they strive to reclaim the American dream.

The ex-couple team sold real estate in the southern California area. When the housing market plummeted after the October 2008 stock market crash, their real estate business began to suffer, they went from living in a $6,000 per month home to a $700 per month apartment within just a few years.

One day in 2011, on a spontaneous whim, Tarek asked a friend to help him make an audition tape for HGTV. The friend filmed an entire episode of the process of house flipping from start to finish. The audition tape of the flip was sent to a production company without anyone really believing that it would be of much interest to them, but instead the production company, Pie Town Productions, loved it. HGTV producers had also noticed the ex-couple’s Instagram profile, which featured before and after profiles of many of the renovation projects they had undertaken.

In 2012, HGTV signed the couple to a regular weekly program that shows the process of buying distressed property and renovating it. In an interview for Variety Magazine, Anstead said: "Each episode shows things that can go wrong, and do go wrong". In April 2013 "Flip Or Flop" finally hit the small screen on the network.

The show's 7th season was rumored to be cancelled because of the couple's divorce. However, they confirmed the 7th season of Flip or Flop will be aired with both parties agreeing to continue co-starring together.
