This is crazy, but after watching HGTV's Flip or Flop for many seasons, who could have seen this coming, the split up of the stars behind the show?
If you read the glorifying, traffic snagging headlines out there, you've seen the words police, domestic dispute, split and what not.
It seems that some months back the cops were called out to their place, but no charges were filed and if you read some of the statements released by Tarek and Christina El Moussa, it seemed to have been overkill.
Or so they say. I'm still trying to understand the statement that the police were called out of "an abundance of caution."
But despite that, they've also been having issues over the last few years, with Tarek's thyroid cancer and Christina having a very tough time getting pregnant, well, things may have just added up over time.
As it seems to stand now, they are separated and evaluating their lives, while HGTV says that their show, already in progress through the season, will continue to air.
It's always a surprise when things like this happen to TV personalities we watch. It has to be hard to go through something like this while camera crews follow you everywhere, but then, fans get shocked when something bad happens.
Look at the Roloffs on Little People, Big World, going through the entire cycle of their divorce in front of the cameras. As if just dealing with the deed of divorces isn't bad enough!
Then there's the other end of the spectrum, when people like Abby from Dance Moms gets busted for fraud while she tried to hide her earnings of the show from the feds. WTF stupid ass dumb move is that?

Anyway, despite the slight change in their format of what houses they're tackling, and what not, Flip or Flop is still a fun show. Though if they're separated, who knows if the show will go on.
