Look for some of the skinny on that nasty makeover meltdown of a relationship? Head over to The Doctors on Monday, March 6th, and catch Tarek El Moussa spilling his guts over what happened.
“I feel like if we had better communication, we would have had a better relationship,” Tarek, 36,
Tarek, who battled thyroid cancer and then testicular cancer during the marriage, believes a
combination of mixed communication, overnight fame and his terrifying health problems ultimately led to the highly publicized divorce.
“I think as time went on, you get busier and busier — and you know, it was overnight — businesses, TV, all these things happened at once, and then the cancer, then the cancer, then the back surgery,” he said. “It just kind of starting pushing us apart from each other.”
Tarek’s post-mortem matched up fairly well with his estranged wife’s account.
“I had never even known anyone with cancer, so it was a very scary time,” Christina, 33, told People in late February, adding, “Like any couple, we had our share of issues, but we went through a lot in a short amount of time … I was overwhelmed. The tension between me and Tarek was high. We weren’t able to properly communicate anymore. It got to the point where we weren’t even driving to set together.” Yikes. That’ll do it.
