Christina Hall tried to ease the animosity between herself and her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa and his wife Heather Rae Young with a conciliatory Instagram post Thursday night.
The 38-year-old Flip Or Flop star shared a sweet photo of herself and her new husband Josh Hall beaming with Tarek, 40, and Heather, 34.
The quartet joined forces to celebrate an open house for Christina and Tarek’s daughter Taylor, 11, just days after they had several tense arguments at their son Brayden’s soccer game.
‘Co-parenting 101’: Christina Hall, 38, tried to downplay the rift between her and ex Tarek El Moussa, 40, and his wife Heather Rae Young, 34, with an Instagram post Thursday showing how they connected at daughter Taylor’s open house
Christina looked casual at first glance in a beige top and high-waisted jeans and brown boots, while Josh wore a light blue shirt and acid-wash jeans with black sneakers.
Tarek was dressed in all black and Heather wore a brown Louis Vuitton jacket with a powder blue shirt and jeans.
The adults all beamed at the camera as they stood around, rocking a cream sweater.
“Co-parenting 101. Kids come first,” Christina explained in her caption, adding that they were at “Taylor’s Open House.”
“Next she goes to middle school. Brayden is recovering well and we are all grateful,” she continued. “It’s been a very tough couple of weeks, ready for some peace.”

The exes appeared to be on the same page when it came to their social media posts, as Tarek posted a snap from the open house around the same time.
“It’s been a tough, exhausting week!” he wrote before sharing more good news about his six-year-old son. “Bray’s starting to feel a little better, so we made it to Taylor’s open house tonight. I’m so proud of them both ❤️.”
Heather added a supportive comment to his post: “[Heart emojis] love you so much baby.’
Tarek and Christina sat down after a peaceful public expression bitter screams at Brayden’s football game on Saturday.
Photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com showed Tarek having to pull Heather away by her arm after what appeared to be an argument with Christina, who was sitting with her husband on a folding chair under a portable awning.
However, the disagreement did not end. Although the pairs kept their distance after that, tensions flared up again later in the game when Tarek and Josh appeared to be arguing with faces only inches apart.
A representative for Christina later said the couples had “solved” their issues.
“A personal matter was discussed and has since been resolved. We’re focused on parenting together as a team and moving forward,” they told Us Weekly.
They appeared to have put their differences aside after Brayden suffered a medical emergency just hours after the game.

Christina was forced to take her son to the hospital, where he had to have his appendix removed, along with Meckel’s diverticulum, which is a congenital defect of the small intestine.
On Tuesday, the Christina On The Coast star posted an update on her son’s condition while calling the medical emergency a “wake-up call.”
“Stressful 24 hours but a good reminder of the importance of teamwork/co-parenting,” she wrote on Instagram. “We’re all under pressure but when it really counts we’ve all been there for Brayden to do our part.”
The health scare comes as Christina is locked in a custody battle with her second husband, British TV presenter Ant Anstead, to whom she was married from 2018 to 2021.
The two share two-year-old Hudson Anstead. Ant was denied in his motion for full custody after court filings called his ex an unfit mother and claimed she had endangered Hudson’s safety.
Christina’s legal team has called her ex’s claims “false allegations”.

Although the content of Christina and Heather’s argument isn’t clear, the bad blood between the two doesn’t seem to be new.
“There has been tension between Christina and Heather for a while,” a source told Us Weekly on Wednesday. “They usually keep their distance.”
They added that the Christina On The Coast star prefers to communicate with Tarek when it comes to the kids.
“She accepts Heather taking on the role of stepmom but has this animosity towards her,” the source continued.
“The whole football match incident proved that to everyone [Christina and Heather] can’t figure it out Honestly, they can’t stand each other.”

Christina also has her own longstanding issues with her ex-husband.
In May 2016, just seven months before they would announce their split, police were called to the couple’s home to investigate a “possibly suicidal man with a gun,” police officials said.
During the pursuit, police found a man who worked at a home next to Tarek and Christina and said he saw Tarek “run out of his back door” and “jump over his back fence,” according to People.
Christina’s makeup artist Shannon Rhodes was at her home at the time Tarek stormed out of the house, and she claimed to police that she saw him remove a gun from a safe before stuffing it in his backpack and rushing out.
She said he “seemed annoyed” when he walked out and he refused to answer her when she tried to get his attention, although she stressed that he didn’t threaten her or say anything that would indicate that he intends to harm himself.
Tarek was eventually found by police and complied with their requests to return home, where he subsequently gave them five guns for 30 days.

Tarek has also said their marriage was strained after his treatments for thyroid and testicular cancer, when he started taking testosterone injections, which he later claimed he didn’t need.
After their divorce, the two resumed filming Flip Or Flop despite being ex-boyfriends, but they couldn’t contain the ugly arguments between the two.
Tensions reached a fever pitch in July 2021 when Tarek lashed out, calling Christina “crazy” on set while boasting that he “wins” in their post-divorce life, according to TMZ.
During the tirade, he reportedly yelled at his ex that his new wife, Heather Rae Young, was “richer and hotter” than her.
A source who witnessed the blow added that Tarek called Christina a “stranded loser” while boasting that he “made her” and that he “enjoyed” seeing her “fail”.
“Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s winning. The world knows you’re crazy!’ He is said to have screamed on set.
The source claimed Tarek was outraged after Christina told him the rest of the crew was ready to start filming again.
