Tarek El Moussa is ready to flip the narrative.

The Flip or Flop alum is getting honest about the difficult chapters of his past in his upcoming book Flip Your Life, out on Feb. 6, 2024, according to a press release.

Tarek—who was first diagnosed with Stage 2 thyroid cancer in 2013—will open up about his health issues that led to his addiction to steroids, as well as his divorce from Christina Hall, which was finalized in 2018 after eight years of marriage.

“Tarek sheds light for the first time on pivotal moments in his life,” reads a synopsis, “from the very early days of his real estate career, including tremendous financial highs followed by devastating lows, filming Flip or Flop with his ex-wife Christina, to his earth-shattering bouts with thyroid and testicular cancer, a crippling back injury, his subsequent addiction to steroids, and his long and hard-earned path to recovery.”

As the reality star put it in a video on social media this week, “I had two beautiful children and I thought I was at the peak of my game until I was diagnosed with two different cancers and going through a very public divorce.”

Following his split with Christina—the mother of his kids Taylor, 13, and Brayden, 8—Tarek went on to marry Heather Rae Young in October 2021. Tarek and the Selling Sunset star—who has admitted to the “ups and downs” of co-parenting with Christina—expanded their blended family in February with the arrival of baby boy Tristan, while Christina married Josh Hall in Hawaii last year.

And the highs and lows of his personal life will certainly be part of Flip Your Life.

“I share my entire journey and all of the struggles that have accompanied it,” Tarek wrote on Instagram Sept. 21. “I put my heart and soul into this book and got really vulnerable with it, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.”
