What Do Kate Gosselin’s Kids Think of Her New TV Show, ‘Kate Plus Date’?

Kate Gosselin is coming back to TV. The 43-year-old mom of eight will appear in a new TLC reality TV show, Kate Plus Date, about her quest to find love. Previously, she starred in Jon and Kate Plus 8 (later Kate Plus 8) from 2007 to 2017.

On the show, a matchmaker will set Gosselin up on blind
dates. But don’t expect any wild antics like you might see on other dating
shows. The “G-rate” Kate Plus Date will
definitely be family friendly.

“It was important for me that my kids could watch the show and not feel cringe-y or uncomfortable,” Gosselin said during a recent Television Critics Association panel discussion about the show.

What her kids have to say about the show

While the Kate Plus Date will focus on Gosselin’s efforts to find a new man (she and Jon Gosselin divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage), viewers will also get a glimpse of her kids. Eighteen-year-old twins Mady and Cara will be on hand to help their mom navigate the dating pool. They’ll be “weighing in and helping me out,” Gosselin explained.

Apparently, Gosselin’s kids think it’s high time that she
started dating again.

“We’ve been nudging her to date for years,” Mady said
at the TCA event. “We’re all, all eight of us, are so glad that she
finally is.”

“She deserves to be happy. Everyone deserves to be
happy,” Mady added.

It’s a different kind of dating show

Most dating shows focus on younger people without kids who
are looking for romance. Gosselin says her show will show a different side of
modern dating.

“There’s no other mom dating show out there,” Gosselin
explained. “I have five daughters and three sons, and they need to be able to
watch a respectful … G-rated show,” she added. “And it’s important for me to be
an example to my kids.”

Why Kate decided to return to TV

In an interview with People last year, Gosselin explained one of the reasons she decided to document her dating journey for the cameras: safety.

“If I’m going to date someone, I can’t just go out on a date
— it’s creepy to me to think of just going out somewhere with some stranger,
and so I actually feel like doing it like this is the best and safest way for
me to go on a date — a camera crew will be there! I’ll be safe!” she said. “And
the person will have been vetted by a matchmaker.”

The realization that her kids were growing up also spurred
Gosselin to try dating again.

“As we’re talking about Mady and Cara going off to college
which is becoming more and more of a reality, it’s gonna happen, it almost
became like a worry for them, too, like ‘Mommy, you’re gonna be all alone
soon,’ ” Gosselin explained.

“[I[ started picturing myself sitting in a rocking chair,
knitting, and words like ‘old maid’ and ‘spinster’ started to come to mind, and
I realized that no, I don’t want that to be my fate,” she added.

Will the Gosselin twins get their own show?

Kate two oldest daughters are growing up fast. Last fall, they began their senior year of high school, and they turned 18 in October. The pair now each have their own public Instagram accounts, though only Mady has posted any content.

Mom Kate even suggested that the girls might get their own
reality TV show when they head off to college next year, though she added “that’s absolutely up to

Kate Plus Date will premiere in June 2019 on TLC.

Sarah Ferguson Calls for End of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Bullying: ‘Social Media Has Become a Sewer’

Sarah Ferguson

Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson has had enough of the bullying that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have endured — and is quite outspoken about the matter, referring to social media as a “sewer.”

Ferguson knows all too well the effects of this bullying

The Duchess of York is, unfortunately, all too familiar with tabloid attention, as she has been the subject of many articles over the years. Most notably, the media tried to drum up a feud between Ferguson and Princess Diana.

Sarah Ferguson wants the bullying to stop

In a letter she wrote for Hello! Magazine, Ferguson took aim at social media while discussing the treatment of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Often, Middlelton and Markle are on the receiving end of hateful trolls and online abuse.

In her letter, Ferguson writes: “It’s time to confront head on the fact that much of social media has become a sewer… Take a look at any website, and you’ll see extraordinarily abusive comments aimed not only at people in the public eye but also other internet users.”

She continued: “Bullying, sniping, bitching, even the most
appalling sexism, racism and homophobia are commonplace — it seems that online,
anything goes.”

Ferguson’s words ring true about creating untrue rivalries

The Duchess of York touched on her relationship with the late Princess Diana, as she shared in the letter: “Women, in particular, are constantly pitted against and compared with each other in a way that reminds me of how people tried to portray Diana and me all the time as rivals, which is something neither of us ever really felt.”

While Ferguson didn’t reference the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, royal contributor Imogen Lloyd Webber told GMA: “She absolutely is referring to the treatment of Meghan and Kate. Certainly there are parallels between the relationship that Kate and Meghan have and Diana and Fergie had.”

Additionally, Emily Nash, Hello! magazine’s royal
correspondent, told GMA: “It’s safe to say that when the Duchess of York
and the Princess of Wales were around, social media didn’t exist and this was
always being played out in the newspapers.”

Nash further touched on social media trolls, explaining:
“Nowadays we are seeing something very similar online with their fans
pitted against each other.”

Kensington Palace has stepped in to remove hateful comments

While it’s impossible to stop trolls from spreading their hate, Kensington Palace aides are involved with moderating social media posts and deleting any violent, sexist, and/or racist comment meant for Markle and Middleton..

Nash further remarked that many of the comments are “very
petty, including “a lot of body shaming and criticizing how they walk, how they
look — and a lot of this is coming from women. Meghan is a newcomer so there is
a lot more scrutiny on her.”

She added: “It feels like it has reached a tipping
point now and it can’t go on like this.”

Ferguson’s letter supports #HellotoKindness

Ferguson’s letter is the latest effort to support Hello!
magazine’s #HellotoKindness campaign, which seeks to “champion positivity
online.” Those who want to post a comment online should ask themselves these
questions first: “Is it friendly? Is it kind? Would you say it in real life?”

Ferguson noted: “Let’s all
try to think before we post. Let’s all try to treat each other a little more
gently. Before starting an argument online, take a deep breath and try to
respect someone else’s position. Where we see others behaving unacceptably,
let’s call it out. It’s an old motto, but a good one: if you can’t say
anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”

In the letter, Ferguson notes: “I believe that it’s time to
take a stand. This isn’t about free speech. The truth is, it’s not acceptable
to pit women against one another all the time. It’s not acceptable to troll
other people viciously online.”

The Real Reason Kim Kardashian Never Smiles In Photos

Kim Kardashian is known for being in front of the camera 24/7. When the KKW Beauty mogul isn’t letting us all into her life on her long-running reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians she’s on Instagram snapping selfies or sharing videos on her IG stories. However, in recent years there has been one significant difference about North, Saint and Chicago’s mom in photos. Though she used to smile for the cameras and on red carpets, Kardashian rarely shows her pearly whites these days.

The real reason Kim Kardashian never smiles anymore

Though she’s mastered the Tyra Banks smize –Kim Kardashian refuses to crack a full smile in her photos. Instead, she chooses to stare into the camera for a more “high fashion” look. Since Kardashian seems like a nice person, this look doesn’t exactly fit her personality, but the 38-year-old recently revealed that not smiling is one of her biggest beauty secrets.

During a recent Mario Dedivanovic’s Master Class event, Kardashian was asked by an attendee to share her secret for smooth skin. The soon-to-be mom of four replied, “Don’t smile.” Not smiling certainly prevents any laugh lines from appearing, but because Kardashian laughs and smiles with her kiddos all the time we don’t think she’s just going around frowning or smizing in every aspect of her life.

Why did Kim Kardashian stop smiling in photos?

Preventing laugh lines was simply a side-effect of Kardashian’s choice not to smile. She originally stopped smiling back in 2013 when she was pregnant with her first child –North West. She experienced extreme swelling due to preeclampsia. This happens when women develop high blood pressure when pregnant, and their feet, legs, and hands swell.

The horrible comments about her appearance changed the way Kardashian wanted her picture taken. She also felt like she didn’t want to be nice to people who profited off of taking her photo. She told C Magazine,

Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about…I don’t want to smile for them. I don’t want to be out. Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.

Does smiling make you look older?

Kim Kardashian might be on to something. According to a 2017 study by the Psychonomic Bulletin and Review-Journal, people may look older when they are smiling. However, the study does not say if smiling actually ages you. Still, with her no-smiling crusade, Kardashian has an ally in her rapper hubby Kanye West. Back in 2015 at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards he said, “You know the paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile.”

Zac Efron’s Best Movies So Far

Zac Efron born Zachary David Alexander Efron is a California born actor who’s been making rounds in Hollywood since 2002. Initially he focused on TV appearances but eventually he climbed his way up the ladder to work on films. With a successful 17 year career under his belt, he’s appeared in his fair share of enticing roles. Let’s take a look at some of Efron’s best!

Zac Efron brings Ted Bundy to life

Efron’s most recent role was as Ted Bundy in the biographical crime thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. The film covers the various crimes committed by Bundy but takes on a unique perspective. Instead of looking through the eyes of Bundy, the film takes on the POV of his long time in denial girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer.

Considering the awkward success of the Ted Bundy Tapes on Netflix, it’s no surprise that fans and non-fans alike freaked out about Efron bringing this serial killer to life. The film currently scores a 7.7/10 on IMDb, and an impressive 94% of Google users are fans of Efron’s take on the infamous killer. 

The ‘High School Musical’ Phenomena

There have been several High School Musical movies, Efron has starred in all three as athlete Troy Bolton. The phenomena ran from 2006 through 2008 with a film releasing each year. In its prime, you couldn’t turn the TV on without hearing about the trilogy. Efron put on a stellar performance across all three movies landing him an MTV award for Best Male Performance, three Teen Choice Awards, and a handful of nominations. 

Zac Efron tackles another musical with ‘Hairspray’

In 2007, Efron played Link Larkin in the musical dramedy, Hairspray. Considering his experience with the musical genre thanks to High School Musical it’s no surprise he knocked the role out of the park. Efron got to rub shoulders with some pretty amazing performers while working on this film including John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer, Amanda Bynes, and Christopher Walken.

The movie was so good it was nominated for three Golden Globes and landed 21 wins. Efron took home a BFCAA Award, HFA Award, and PSIFF Award with his fellow cast members for Best Ensemble. He also won an MTV Movie award for his breakthrough performance!

Zac Efron joins the circus in ‘The Greatest Showman’

Ten years after Hairspray, Efron took on the role of Phillip Carlyle in The Greatest Showman. This film was his most recent not counting the 2019 releases. The movie also happens to be one of the greatest box office success stories of its time. Following suit with his previous iconic roles, Efron brings another character to life with a musical backdrop. In the film, he has some unlikely costars, namely Hugh Jackman who ditches his claws to play P.T. Barnum.

The biographical film chronicles the life of Barnum as he builds a worldwide sensation from the ground up. Efron may not have been in the lead role but his chemistry with fellow performer Zendaya really made for some powerful moments.   

What’s next for Zac Efron?

Efron has two movies slated to release in 2019. The first is The Beach Bum which will be released March 29th. The film stars Matthew McConaughey in the lead role as the rebellious stoner, Moondog. Efron will be starring alongside as McConaughey playing Flicker. The other movie is Blood Moon which is currently in pre-production. In the fantasy film, Efron will be starring alongside Kate Hudson and Craig Robinson. The film is about a girl with powers who escapes from an asylum and tries to create a life all her own in New Orleans. Considering some of his most memorable roles are musicals, will 2019 be a good year for Efron? You’ll just have to wait and see!

What Is Hillsong Church and Why Do So Many Celebrities Go There?

If you did nothing but read about celebrities all day long, then you’d probably think that Hillsong Church was a great place to spot one. After all, the Christian church has a few A-list celebrities associated with it, from Justin Bieber to Chris Pratt. It all has people wondering – what is Hillsong Church? Who goes there? And what kind of faith do they preach?

Hillsong church | Hillsong via Instagram

Hillsong hails from Australia

Fans are surprised to find that Hillsong isn’t even based in the United States – the church comes from Down Under. It was founded in New South Wales, Australia in the 1980s by Brian and Bobbie Houston. It’s most popular there and boasts more than 100,000 attendees every week, but also has a decent following in other major cities, too. You’ll find a Hillsong church in New York, London, Paris, Moscow, San Francisco, and Buenos Aires, to name a few.

Don’t live in a city? They also live stream their services to people all over the world.

What religion does Hillsong preach?

Faith practices taught at Hillsong are rooted in Pentecostal Christianity. The teachings focus on Bible study, faith in Jesus Christ, and baptism.

The belief systems fell under scrutiny recently when actress Ellen Page tweeted out a criticism of the church. Actor Chris Pratt appeared on The Colbert Show discussing a recent fast he had done under the guidance of his church. Page said on Twitter, “…But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed.”

“Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t
two sides,” she continued. “The damage it causes is severe.”

Pratt issued a response, saying “Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”

While the church had previously denounced homosexuality as a sin, they also said in a statement that they “love everyone” regardless of sexual orientation.

Pastor Carl Lentz is
basically a celebrity himself

There’s more than one
pastor at Hillsong, but the one you’ve probably heard of is Carl Lentz. He’s
been spotted with Justin
, Hailey Baldwin, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne. The 32-year-old Virginia
native graduated from Hillsong International Leadership College and now offers
spiritual guidance to celebrities and other non-famous parishioners, too.

Lentz and his wife
Laura run Hillsong New York, which he says is mostly made up of young members
in their 20s and 30s. Their parish has 6,000 active members.

Church services are modern and musical

This isn’t your
grandmother’s church service. Fancy dresses are swapped for jeans and graphic
tees. Instead of practicing worship in an ancient building, church happens in a
mix of locations including event spaces like the Hammerstein Ballroom for the
NYC outpost. Attending celebrities are granted VIP seating.

The whole thing is very hip and cool – there are neon signs, psalms on iPhones, and upbeat music. The church releases an album every year with songs from Grammy-nominated artists, like the Christian rock group Young & Free.  

They make a lot of

Celebrity attendees
aside, there’s no question that Hillsong is raking in donations. One estimate
found that the church brought in $100 million in just a year thanks to record
sales, book sales, and regular old donations. Pastors at Hillsong do not take a
vow of poverty like they do in some other religions.

Like other
megachurches, critics have called Hillsong a “cult” and accused the founders of
everything from sexual abuse scandals to exploitation of members. But even with
these criticisms, it’s an undeniably popular place to worship for young people
(or celebrities) who seek a deeper faith.

This is Meghan Markle’s Favorite Makeup Brand

Meghan Markle always looks flawless. It seems that during every royal engagement, she looks like she didn’t try too hard to look good, yet she still does. Her makeup is consistently perfectly done; she wears it, but it still looks natural. Meghan may not be like most women anymore, but she still has her go-to makeup brands the same way most women do. Here are some of the brands Meghan Markle swears by.

Meghan says she doesn’t have a set beauty routine

Back in 2017, Allure interviewed Meghan about her daily beauty routine, and she seemed like she didn’t have a perfectly set way of doing things. (Although she does do something called the “five-minute face,” but more about that later.) She said she likes to “play around” with her daily routine, but she is a big fan of Jan Marini skin products. “[Their serum] is a nice glycolic one that makes your skin really glowy.” She also said the secret to her long eyelashes is Revitalash and claims they’re as long as they’ve ever been.

She’s a fan of the same products she wore while filming ‘Suits:’ NARS blush and Diorshow mascara

When Meghan was filming Suits, she wasn’t doing her own makeup on set. Although the products weren’t necessarily what she used at home, she loved the way they felt on her skin. Specifically, she loved the NARS blush — it’s one product she did say she uses on her own, too. “I use it on and off camera because it gives you a nice glow from within.” The show also introduced her to Diorshow mascara, which she said is now her favorite. And her on-screen look was complete with Make Up For Ever HD Powder.

Meghan says it takes her five minutes to do her makeup

She noted that getting her makeup done for a show and doing her makeup at home were two very different things. Since the show was filmed in high definition, makeup was critical. Running out to do some errands doesn’t necessarily require the same amount of time spent on the face. Meghan doesn’t use foundation in real life; she does something called the “five-minute face,” which consists of YSL Touché Éclat, which is a highlighter. She then uses mascara and Chap Stick and finishes her look with a hint of blush.

She may spend more time on it now that she’s a royal

When Meghan discussed her daily makeup routine, it was prior
to marrying Prince Harry. Today, she’s waking
up at 4:30 a.m.
some mornings to prepare for her day’s engagements. And on
nights when she stays up as
late as 11:30
, she may need a bit more than just some highlighter to
prevent from looking tired. However, Meghan has always been very natural
looking; even on her wedding day, she wasn’t wearing too much makeup. The Duchess
may have a much crazier life now, but she probably still sticks with the
products she used before she married into the royal family.

What Is Ryan Reynolds’ Net Worth?

Ryan Reynolds is currently one of the biggest names in Hollywood. The 42-year-old actor has had a career spanning almost thirty years, earning him numerous awards and nominations as well as a large income in the process.

Let’s take a look at the many works that Reynolds had done and see what his net worth is like today.

His acting history

When Ryan Reynolds was fifteen, he landed his first gig on the Nickelodeon show Fifteen, where he played one of the main characters. According to Reynolds, he earned $150 per episode at this job. “For me, I thought I was, like, a gajillionaire. For $150 a day, it was like a dream come true,” he once shared.

When the series concluded in 1993, Reynolds continued to pursue his acting dream by getting minor roles in several movies and shows. His resume included short stints on The Marshal, The X Files, and The John Larroquette Show.

Despite his frequent appearances in the big and small screens for many years, Reynolds did not get his big break until the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. In 1998, he got the chance to star in the hit ABC sitcom Two Guys and a Girl. Subsequently, in 2002, Reynolds became even more well-known after the release of the comedy film Van Wilder, which became a cult classic.

From then on, Reynolds would continue to snag the leading role in countless numbers of Hollywood films, especially those in the romantic comedy genre, such as Definitely, Maybe; Just Friends; and The Proposal.

In 2011, Reynolds starred in Green Lanterbased off of the DC Comics universe. Not only did he become acquainted with his wife Blake Lively on the set, but he went on to earn several nominations for his role before eventually winning a People’s Choice Award.


By 2016, Ryan Reynolds had already established a name for himself in Hollywood. However, he gained even more commercial and critical success with the release of Deadpool. Aside from playing the title character, Reynolds also had a hand in producing the film since, years before, he played the same character as a minor role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine where he wrote all of his linesDeadpool made more than $700 million worldwide and Reynolds scored a plethora of awards for his work.

With the popularity of the first movie, Deadpool 2 was released in 2018 with Reynolds once again starring, producing, and writing. Deadpool 2 was another box office success, raking in yet another $700 million from theaters around the world.

What is Ryan Reynolds’ net worth?

Far from his childhood of making only $150 a day, Ryan Reynolds’ current net worth is estimated at $75 million. In 2017 (a year after the release of the first Deadpool movie), he made $21.5 million and was on Forbes’ list of highest paid actors globally.

Aside from acting, Reynolds also makes money from Aviation American Gin, a liquor brand that he bought stake in last year. Additionally, he has been the brand ambassador for Swiss luxury watch company Piaget since 2016.

With a huge net worth, it comes as no surprise that Ryan Reynolds can afford to spend money on a variety of things that most average people cannot. For example, he love motorcycles and has a whole collection of them. He even prefers motorcycles to cars.

Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively (who has a net worth of $16 million) also bought a $2.35 million house in New York. The estate has almost 5,000 square feet and sits in a quiet small town an hour away from Manhattan with Martha Stewart as a close neighbor.

What ‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Was Really Like Before She Was Married to Ladd Drummond

We know Ree Drummond best as the “accidental country girl” with The Pioneer Woman Food Network show, and she’s gained quite a following over the years. From her delicious and easy recipes to her banter she puts forth for the camera, we’ve learned a lot about the star’s life on the ranch and husband, Ladd Drummond. But she wasn’t always dreaming of life in Oklahoma — and it turns out she was like a completely different person before meeting her husband one fateful night at a bar.

Here’s what Ree Drummond was really like before being The Pioneer Woman we all know and love today.

Ree had aspirations of being a journalist or a ballet dancer

When Ree was young, she never wanted to be a famous cook. In fact, she had a totally different life for herself planned — and it had nothing to do with the culinary arts at all. The New Yorker reminds us Ree grew up in Bartlesville, an affluent city in Oklahoma where she studied ballet as a young child and grew up around wealth. Her father was an orthopedic surgeon and her parents belonged to a country club. And when it came to her career of choice, Ree moved away to Los Angeles to study broadcast journalism. As she told the publication, “I wanted to be Jane Pauley.”

She didn’t stick with that career plan long, though, as she then switched her major to gerontology, which is the study of old age. Ree also called this a “completely random major” and didn’t seem too set on this plan, either, but she was happy to be in Los Angeles to sample all that the city had to offer that the small city of Bartlesville couldn’t.

She dreamed of city life before meeting Ladd

I know more now.

A post shared by Ree Drummond – Pioneer Woman (@thepioneerwoman) on

Ree may not have been too sure about her major, but there was one thing she was set on — and that was moving to the city. Country Living reports in the first issue of The Pioneer Woman Magazine, Ree recounted the time she went home to Oklahoma to study for the LSAT and immediately began making plans to move to Chicago. “Living at home with my parents had made me miss city life and start getting serious about Chicago. Based on my brief time at home, I knew that an urban environment was where I belonged,” she wrote.

As for why the city captured her heart, she went on to explain the joys and wonders that she felt big city life could have offered her at the time. “I missed the conveniences, the coffee shops, the take-out galore and the little nail salons … I missed the anonymity of living in a city—the ability to run to the market without running into my third-grade teacher,” she wrote. Of course, we know now she never made it out to Chicago, and it was all because she met her husband at a bar while visiting home. Once they went on their first date, she knew she was ready to be in the relationship with the “Marlboro Man,” as she calls him, for life.

Ree also went through a number of boyfriends and called herself ‘boy crazy’

A post shared by Ree Drummond – Pioneer Woman (@thepioneerwoman) on

Ladd might want to feel lucky that Ree stuck with him in her youth, as she’s explained in the past that she was crazy about boys and dating when she was younger. “I’d always been boy crazy. From lifeguards at the pool to the caddies traipsing the golf course, cute boys were simply one of my favorite things. By my mid-20s, I’d dated practically every category of cute boy under the sun,” Country Living reports she wrote. And Ree also recounted to People the many boyfriends she had while living her life in Los Angeles during her school years.

Fans of Ree’s can’t imagine her with anyone other than Ladd, of course — and while she may have always been looking for the next best thing as a youth, it seems her current marriage is just perfect.

You’re getting really high design, but you’re also getting a glimpse of my personal life, for example, the engagement, the nutrition book I’m writing,” El Moussa told Entertainment Tonight. “Yeah, he’s in it — the engagement, the wedding, the whole thing.”

It sounds like fans will get to see how the two managed to keep the big event a secret for so long.

She said their publicist and planners kept the wedding secret

There were many people who were in on the secret. “We got really lucky, we really did. My publicist met with a lot of the planners and everyone just kept it secret. It was amazing that that can still happen,” El Moussa said. “I was just really trying to stay calm and enjoy all the moments of it.”

Ant Anstead previously told People how he proposed to the reality star. “I did the proposal on Newport Beach on the sand with some champagne at sunset,” he said.

El Moussa also chimed in on how her husband got her to the beach. “He was like, ‘Let’s just go for a bike ride’ and we were going to grab dinner,” she told People. “We were watching the sunset, and then all of a sudden he just got on his knee and proposed. So yes, I was surprised.”

But Anstead’s cover was almost blown even before the proposal. “I called on [El Moussa’s] best friend, Cassie, and I said, ‘Look, we need to go ring shopping,’” he said. “We walked into a jeweler and I started looking at rings. And then I heard a customer go, ‘Oh my god it’s Ant from Wheelers and Dealers.’ And I just turned and walked out the shop. And Cassie is left in there going, ‘Ant? Ant?’” Luckily, everything worked out for the two of them.

Christina El Moussa was certainly the design force on Flip or Flop so it only makes sense that her new show will focus on it. She will be transforming properties along the coast through design.

Design is my favorite part of the house-flipping process and I can’t wait to be able to now work directly with clients and create a space they’ve always dreamed of having,” she announced in the press release.

Tarek El Moussa may also be seen on the show given they live just two streets apart from each other and are co-parenting their two kids together. The divorced spouses continued to work with each other on Flip or Flop so they seemed to really figure out staying on good terms.

So it sounds like people will get a good look into Christina El Moussa’s love life on the new show. They might even see Tarek El Moussa and more of what their relationship is like today.
