‘This year has been incredibly isolating. Activities like church, travel, dinner, movies, sports- canceled,’ she wrote. ‘No longer seeing my friends smiling faces on set (all covered by masks) it all feels like shit. So many changes for so many people.’

Christina has starred on the popular HGTV design and renovation show, Flip or Flop, with ex husband Tarek El Moussa since 2013.

She remarried television host Ant Anstead in December 2018 and announced the couple split just two months ago in September.

‘So despite what you see on Instagram most people are struggling,’ she continued. ‘When I get told “you must be an absent mother because you are not with your kids” – smh wake up people. 

‘I hardly post anymore … and I def do not want to post my kids every freaking day to make it a contest of who’s a better parent. f that. This doesn’t mean I’m not with my kids – it means the opposite – I am with them- I’m present.’

Christina shares two children with Tarek, Taylor and Brayden, and has a one-year-old son with Ant, Hudson. 

Flip or Flop was recently renewed for a 10th season, which will be the fourth season Christina and Tarek have worked on together since their split in 2016.

‘So stop parent shaming people, stop choosing sides when there is no side to choose,’ she added. ‘My point being – when you see stuff on here take it all with a grain of salt. 

‘There is a whole lot of Filters and fake smiles. I’ve been guilty of faking it too. We are all struggling – some of us are just better at “masking” it.’

In September, Christina announced their split with an Instagram post and wrote:  ‘We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority. We appreciate your support and ask for privacy for us and our family as we navigate the future.’
