Last week, Tarek El Moussa reportedly launched a vicious verbal diatribe against his ex-wife Christina Haack while on the set of their show Flop or Flop.
And on Wednesday, Christina Haack left the drama behind as she focused on her boyfriend Josh Hall.
The mum of three, 38, posted a sweet snap of him gushing over her husband, calling him her “ride or die” in the Instagram caption.

Christina seemingly alluded to the incident with ex Tarek in the candid caption, which she posted with the comments turned off.
‘Drive or die. Some people are lucky enough to be the first time forever, but no one has to be ashamed of things that don’t work and no one knows what goes on behind closed doors – remember that before you make judgments and assumptions…and this woman/ mommy is still lucky this man chose me,” added a heart emoji.
Christina was grinning from ear to ear in the photo, which she took in her car, lovingly placing her hand on his leg.
The snap comes just days after it was revealed ex-husband Tarek launched a nasty verbal diatribe against Christina while on the set of their show Flop or Flop.

The exes, who share daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, five, rose to fame as a power couple on the HGTV home renovation scene and are still working together on their show, despite officially breaking up five years ago. .
Tensions between the pair boiled last week when El Moussa reportedly labeled Christina “crazy” and stated that he was “winning”.
He is also said to have compared her to his current fiancée, Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young, 33, who called Heather “richer and hotter” than Christina, according to TMZ.
The insider claimed that Tarek called Christina a “washed up loser,” said he “made her” and that he “had fun” watching her “fail.”
He is also said to have said, ‘Look at me, look at me, look at me. That’s called winning. The world knows you’re crazy!’
El Moussa allegedly lost his temper when Haack told him she and the crew were ready to fire.
He was also reportedly unhappy about her recent public admission that she smoked toad poison — a psychedelic that she claimed helped with her anxiety — before meeting her current boyfriend Josh Hall.
TMZ reported that the alleged rant wasn’t the pair’s first verbal confrontation on set.
The couple married in 2009 but separated in 2016. They were officially divorced in 2018.
El Moussa met his new partner Heather at a party on July 4 in 2019 and a year later they got engaged. Haack married Ant Anstead in 2018 and welcomed son Hudson London in September 2019. They split the following year and their divorce was finalized in June. She has been dating Josh Hall for several months and they recently enjoyed a trip to Tulum.

During their seven-year marriage, El Moussa and Haack endured many hardships, including his stage 2 thyroid/testicular cancer, her fertility problems and an ominous ‘suicidal’ incident in 2016 involving the police.
Police were called to their marital home in May 2016 after police responded to a call for a suspected suicidal man with a gun. Police officers showed up with 11 officers and even a helicopter.
Witnesses told police at the time that they saw Tarek run out of his house with a gun and turn down a nearby walking trial. Christina was seen running out of the house and was visibly upset.
Police eventually caught up with Tarek on the trail and he dropped his gun when police asked. They then seized five weapons he had in his home, but no arrests were made.
Days before he filed the divorce papers, an insider claimed that Tarek had become suspicious of his wife’s correspondence with their then-contractor Gary Anderson.
The source claimed this led to the incident where police were called to the house after they reportedly received reports that Tarek had armed himself and was suicidal.
He voluntarily gave up all firearms for safekeeping for thirty days.
Tarek has insisted that he amicably stayed with his ex so they could continue hosting their hit show, but the father of two has taken a public swipe at Christina.
Shortly after their split, the house flipper reality star posted a selfie of their kids’ school during open house.
Single #dadlife Kid’s open house… moms [thinking face emoji]’ he captioned it, clearly suggesting that the mother of two should have been there but wasn’t.
Toad smoking and finding love: Earlier this month, Christina shared a candid Instagram post about her life-changing experience with psychedelics and finding love again with her new husband Josh Hall
Last week, Tarek revealed that he met Christina’s current boyfriend Josh during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“A few times,” said El Moussa’s fiancé Heather, standing next to him at the kick-off event for the JBL True Summer Campaign, before sharing that Hall “seems” a good guy.
“I don’t really know him, but I sure hope so,” the Flip or Flop star added.
Christina took to social media that same day to clarify that she met Josh in the spring of 2021 and that she wanted to keep their relationship private “before the tornado (media attention) hit.”
In her lengthy Instagram post, Christina appeared to be defending the new relationship against the haters’ social media, as it comes less than a year after her divorce from former husband Ant Anstead.

“I met Josh when I wasn’t in a state of fear or fight-or-flight… I’d taken time off, hired a spiritual coach and smoked a Bufo pad (which basically reset my brain and saved years of fear into 15 minutes),’ she wrote alongside a photo of the couple enjoying an ocean view.
Commonly known as the Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, the venom of the ‘Bufo toad’ secretes a potent venom that can be harvested and smoked to achieve a high.
“I may be a little crazy and certainly not perfect, but I will never live my life based on the judgments or opinions of others. We pride ourselves on never judging others and always want others to be happy and we wish others would have the same respect,” Haack shared.
The Anaheim, California native ended the post by taking a shot at those haters, writing, “So yeah “another relationship” and guess what. I’m 38. I do what I want.’
She married Ant on December 22, 2018 and welcomed their son Hudson in September 2019.
Their union would be short-lived as they announced their split in September 2020 and their divorce was finalized last June.
Around the same time, it was publicly revealed that Anstead is now dating Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger.
The reality star also has daughter Amelie, 17, and another son Archie, 14, from his marriage to his first wife, Louise Anstead, whom he divorced in 2017.
