Title: rubbernecking Christina Antstead divorce
Post by: partgypsy on October 20, 2020, 04:01:21 PM
For some reason (maybe because I look at house porn) my phone news was getting flooded with all this "news" about Tarek and Christina, their divorce, her subsequent ott wedding/marriage and of love of new husband.  When about a month after this, up pops they are separating. Just makes me feel cynical. Especially as she now has 2 families to juggle, the post she is buying a yacht, holding a bottle of champagne  https://people.com/home/christina-anstead-buys-a-yacht-and-names-it-aftermath-amid-split-from-ant-anstead/

She posts that but also "don't judge!" missive.

I know nothing about them other than that I think he's now engaged to that other real estate show woman?

So, you're saying that they were married for only a month?

Proud to say I didn't know who any of them are. Read the article and know now. The lives some people live. PR stunt?

I know who Ant Anstead is. He was the replacement for Edd China on Wheeler Dealers. He's a good replacement, but nowhere as down to earth as Edd.

I know who Christina is, because my late mum used to watch her show on HGTV. Same formula for every house they flip. She's irritating AF on the small screen, wouldn't want to meet her in real life. I can see why Ant (and Tarek) got rid of her.

That yacht is truly an aftermath, but she's rolling in the money from a lot of angles. Spend, baby, spend!

I was under the impression that she left Tarek due to his health issues.  I was also under the impression that she left Ant, but I'm less certain about that.

It took me a bit, but now I remember I used to watch Flip or Flop, until the repetitiveness, mutual needling, and fake "oh no we're over budget" drama bugged me too much.

It always bothered me when they'd complain about having enough money, while driving around in a top-trim Escalade with two kids.

Tarek and Christina also got into cahoots with a shady company to sell RE education.

The kicker was a massive vertical billboard in Nairobi, Kenya, for the classes, on the main highway leading into the center of the city. I should dig up the photo I took in July/Aug 2016.

For someone who asked tarek and christina were married (6-8? Years) have 2 kids. Tarek gets cancer, beats cancer. They buy a yacht, she is sleeping with someone else (contractor?) They divorce, she dates others, gets married to ant (yet another tv reality star but across the pond), has baby, now separating less than 2 years later, she buys a yacht. Tarek is getting married too to another tv reality person and proposed on television. Christina is not invited to wedding. Those are the highlights.

You know more than I did. Are these people on TV?

Yeah, they're all on various real estate TV shows.

I've seen Selling Sunset, which is why I know of the ex husband's new fiance. Selling Sunset is not really a real estate show though, it's more like "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills who Sometimes Sell Houses", it's a glorious burning heap of trash.
