Tarek El Moussa just tested positive for COVID-19, and his diagnosis shut down the production of not one…but two reality shows!
According to multiple reports, the ‘Flip Or Flop’ star came up positive with the virus, and it caused the haunting of production for his new show, ‘Flipping 101.’ But, he is currently engaged to Heather Rae Young, who stars on Netflix’s hit show ‘Selling Sunset’ — and the positive test just shut down that production too!
Tarek’s representatives say the positive test came back recently, and he is consulting with his doctor but feels no symptoms. Either way, he has decided to quarantine for the amount of time put forth by the CDC, and his fiancee with join him. Of course, as soon as it is over, he will return to the show.
Tarek El Moussa Tests Positive For COVID-19, Spending 10 Days In Quarantine
Interestingly, Heather hasn’t tested positive for the virus but will be quarantined with her fiance anyways. Also, both reality stars are fully vaccinated — so it appears to be a “breakthrough” case of the virus. ‘Selling Sunset’ was shut down on Friday, and the cast is on standby just in case other positive tests pop up. Obviously, everyone involved wants to be safe and do things properly.
It should be noted since Tarek is experiencing zero symptoms, it’s possible the test results were a false positive. The reality star has had several negative tests since the positive one — but, he has decided to stop production and quarantine just to be safe.
Positive Test Shuts Down TWO Reality Shows!
It’s been an interesting week for the reality star, his ex-wife, and ‘Flip Or Flop’ co-star got engaged for the third time to boyfriend, Joshua Hall. When asked about the engagement, Tarek said “We just saw, but congratulations!” The ‘Selling Sunset’ star also had very nice things to say about the occasion, saying, “Wow, awesome! We just want nothing but happiness for [Christina and Josh] and nothing but happiness for the kids.” Of course, she is referring to the former couple’s two children that they currently share joint custody of — Taylor and Brayden.
“We’re looking forward to the next chapter of everyone’s lives,” she added.
‘Flip Or Flop’ Stars Have A Very Interesting Week…
As we reported, it’s unclear if the former couple is filming new episodes of ‘Flip Or Flop’ after they got into a blowout argument which ended with Tarek yelling at Christina, ‘I made you!’ The reality star addressed the massive fight, saying, “As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex, and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides, and I’m sure we both wish the whole thing never happened.”
Adding, “I never want to go through that ever again. I never want her to go through that again. I know one day our kids are going to be older, and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it’s really important to me.”
Get well soon!
