‘They love swimming in my pool and barbecuing and going on the boat, just doing stuff like that.’

As far as her very public split from Tarek, the Orange County, California native said it made her wiser.

‘I learned that you have to have very thick skin,’ the TV icon said.

‘I just learned that I know who I am, and I really have not let it affect me.’

And she added it has ‘definitely’ made her stronger.

As far as filming their hit home makeover show together, she said: ‘It’s going good.’

She added: ‘At the beginning when everything first started, it was a lot harder because, you know, there was more tension between the two of us. Now it’s gotten a lot easier.’

And the leggy wonder notes that the ‘fun’ crew has made it easy for the exes to gel.

‘It’s light on set,’ she said. ‘We definitely enjoy filming and we enjoy our job for sure.’

And she said her packed schedule suits her: ‘I love being busy.’

A source close to the mother of two told the site: ‘Christina is looking forward to moving on to the next chapter in her life.’

The HGTV reality stars announced their separation in December 2015, disclosing that they had broken up after a heated fight that led to the police being called to their Orange County, California, home.

‘Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,’ they said in a joint statement to ET at the time.

‘We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed,’ they concluded.
