Tarek El Moussa says he’s ‘the best’ Christina Haack ever had after calling him ‘new vanilla ice cream’
They broke up publicly as a couple in December 2016 and finalized their divorce more than three years ago.
But that hasn’t stopped Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack (formerly Anstead) from engaging in a conversation, as shown in a recent give-and-take on Instagram.
Over the weekend, the former couple got playful when Haack drives El Moussa for the outfit he wore in a music video, which she compared to ’90s mainstream rapper Vanilla Ice (born Robert Matthew Van Winkle).

In the clip, El Moussa wears dark camouflage pants, a black bomber jacket, black sneakers and a matching baseball cap as he strolls down a street sidewalk and smiles at the camera.
‘Do you know what you look like? Ice Ice Baby, ”Haack says, laughing off camera, in reference to Vanilla Ice’s huge 1990 hit single.
El Moussa, 39, then clapped back, ‘I look like the best you’ve ever had,’ which made Haack burst out with even more laughter.
The 37-year-old Christina On The Coast star called her ex-husband ‘The new Vanilla Ice’ in the post, which he then shared on his own Instagram stories.
