Tarek El Moussa Reflects on “Absolute Lowest Points of My Life”

Tarek El Moussa Throwback

Tarek El Moussa is doing very well these days.

Despite his split last year from wife Christina, the Flip or Flop co-host has made it clear that he’s very happy being single these days, while also enjoying fatherhood.

But things were not always this positive for the HGTV personality.

It wasn’t that long ago, in fact, that Tarek was battling two forms of cancer and had fallen into at least some kind of depression.

He doesn’t talk about this period of his life often, but he did share the photo above on Instagram this week, reflecting via caption on how far he has come.

“NOT embarrassed to share!!! This was one of the absolute lowest points of my life!! After beating cancer twice I had a horrific back injury,” explained Tarek, expounding as follows:

“Over the course of 10 months I lost 50 pounds from all the pain meds which prevented me from wanting to eat and I was nauseous all the time. I remember those days…in this photo I’m pale white….eyes are black…. and I was 169 pounds!!”

Shortly after her split from Tarek, Christina admitted that this was a very challenging time for the couple in general.

They were trying to have a baby and both were dealing with so many personal issues that communication problems arose.

“My clothing didn’t fit and it looks like I’m wearing drapes! This photo is a reminder than anything is possible with hope,” wrote Tarek as part of his caption, concluding:

“While I went through this it was the first time in my life I wanted to quit! Thank god I didn’t…or I wouldn’t be standing tall today!!

“Reminder everyone, anything is possible! You just have to believe!”

Lindsay Shookus: ACTUALLY Pregnant With Ben Affleck’s Baby?!

Ben Affleck: Suicide Squad Premiere Photo

It’s been two months since we first learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are dating, and surprisingly, the couple has been pretty open about their relationship status.

They haven’t made any official announcements, because that’s just not how the Batfleck rolls, but they’re certainly not hiding their romance from the tabloid press.

Affleck and Shookus attended the Emmys together on Sunday night, and while they didn’t walk the red carpet together, Ben reportedly stood up and cheered when she won an award for her work on Saturday Night Live.

So either Ben and Lindsay are moving pretty fast by the standards of two recently divorced people, or there’s some truth to the rumors that they started dating while they were both still married.

Either way, it’s a relationship that has the rumor mill has churning non-stop.

There have been near-constant rumors that Ben and Lindsay are secretly engaged, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that some gossip outlets already have the couple taking an even bigger leap together.

Both Radar Online and several tabloids reported this week on rumors that Lindsay is pregnant with Ben’s baby.

“There have been whispers that she might be pregnant with Ben’s child, and that’s why they decided to reveal they were together,” says one insider.

Obviously, the couple has not confirmed any of these reports, and they should probably be taken with several grains of salt.

We’re not saying that Lindsay is definitively not pregnant with Ben’s baby, but the rumors don’t exactly jibe with reports that Ben and Lindsay are drinking heavily.

We doubt Ben would publicly fall of the wagon by getting hammered with his pregnant girlfriend.

The man’s had his issues over the years, but he’s not Charlie Sheen.

We’re inclined to believe that Ben and Lindsay are headed for the altar eventually, but we …read more

Kailyn Lowry: Did She Trick Chris Lopez into Getting Her Pregnant?!

Kailyn Lowry with Baby Lo

Remember back when Kailyn Lowry’s life was easier, quieter, and so much more drama-free?

Oh, wait — it’s never been like that for her, has it?

Since the moment we were first introduced to her on 16 and Pregnant, her life has been at least a little bit chaotic.

Back then, it was because, you know, she was 16 and pregnant, and also because of her absent father and severely alcoholic mother.

Since then, she’s been through a lot: breakups, a messy divorce, and a whole, whole lot of criticism.

These days, the criticism is a little out of control, and most of it has to do with her relationship (or lack thereof) with Chris Lopez and her decision to have a baby with him.

Because, in case you hadn’t heard, the Chris Lopez situation is basically a treasure trove of questionable decisions and just bad times in general.

We don’t know a whole lot about Chris, but we do know that they met while going to college together.

They were friends, they had some sort of fling last fall, and Kailyn got pregnant.

She claims that she got pregnant on purpose — it was definitely 100% a conscious decision that she made.

But after the pregnancy happened, it seems like Chris sort of split for a while.

He wasn’t with her throughout the vast majority of her pregnancy, if he was ever with her romantically in the first place, and we heard report after report claiming he’d abandoned her.

She said that she was going to be a single mother this time around — it looked pretty bad.

But right at the very end of her pregnancy, Chris pulled it together a bit, and he was there when their son was born.

He’s been there in the weeks afterward too. It’s starting to sound like he’s actually going to …read more
