Fans Accuse HGTV’s Tarek El Moussa Of Showing Off Wealth And Putting Up Paparazzi Photos

Many of Tarek El Moussa’s own fans were deeply annoyed by a new social media post from the HGTV star, in which he shared a paparazzi photo of himself carrying designer shopping bags for his wife of nearly a year, fellow reality TV star. personality Heather Rae El Moussa. Some fans called him out for bragging about his wealth, while others accused the “Flipping 101” host of staging the paparazzi shots.

On September 20, 2022, Tarek posted a photo of himself on Instagram and Facebook, showing him carrying a large Versace bag and a Louis Vuitton gift box.

The renovation expert, who rose to fame while filming HGTV’s hit “Flip or Flop” with ex-wife Christina Hall, wrote: “Caught by the paparazzi who were holding all the bags. Just kidding they caught me with Heather’s presents…so actually another average day for me.’

Many fans assumed the photo was taken while Tarek was shopping for Heather’s birthday on September 16, but the photo was actually taken after a birthday party for her that night at Craig’s in West Hollywood. While some fans praised Tarek for adoring his wife, who is part of Netflix’s “Selling Sunset” cast, many slammed the HGTV host for showing off his wealth with what one fan called “braggarts.”

One Instagram fan wrote: “I’m all for people making it and having great things. What annoys me is when people are constantly showing what they have. It’s so sad. How about a post about donating your time or money to help others?”

“Just stuff…I’m not impressed,” one woman wrote. “Your insecurities are visible … showing off is repulsive and embarrassing.”

When one wrote, “It’s an art to be subtle yet classy,” another fan replied, “Not with him.”

Similar pushback came from people on Tarek’s Facebook fan page.

Dozens of people liked a comment from a fan who wrote, “You’ve got Brag Bags!” Many also liked a comment that said “drop the humble bag…”

When another Facebook fan wrote, “Wonder why you had to post THIS,” someone replied, “Pretentiousness, arrogance and no substance. Enough.”

Another Facebook user commented, “There’s so much suffering right now. Maybe I want to tone it down,” while another wrote, “Those bags are worth more than anything I’ve got.”

In addition to complaining that Tarek was showing off the designer gifts Heather received, many fans also accused the pair of staging the paparazzi photos to generate more media attention.

Some celebrities have been known to tip the paparazzi about where they will be. Sometimes they are even paid to be photographed in “everyday” situations because publications know their images will attract more readers or brands want fans to see their favorite celebrities using their products.

In 2020, during the third season of “Selling Sunset,” Heather’s co-star Christine Quinn claimed that the couple takes paparazzi photos and negotiates media coverage with publications.

“Unless you’re Jennifer Aniston, I don’t think the paparazzi just follow you,” she told Heather during one episode, adding “people hire publicists and entire teams to get their name out there. They call or give hints.” She later said it was suspicious that the El Moussa’s are so often mentioned in the media for mundane things like “baking cookies” or going to a restaurant.

The pair denied Quinn’s allegations, and Tarek addressed the controversy on a Dear Media podcast that year, saying, “Christine has a big mouth. She’s said stupid things about us. I’m not really interested in dealing with her bullshit.”

But after Tarek’s most recent post, it’s clear that some of his fans think he tipped off the paparazzi he claimed to have “caught” with Heather’s gifts.

One Instagram follower wrote: “This reminds me of when Christine Quinn told you guys about calling the paparazzi about yourself. Also- the People Magazine stories twice a week. Let’s face it: real paparazzi don’t follow about a host of an HGTV show and a side actress on a fake reality show”

Another person on Instagram asked how the paparazzi knew they were in the restaurant and added, “Did you call them?!?”

One fan wrote on Facebook: “I’m sure you got ‘caught’. You must have tipped for publicity then.”

The restaurant where Heather’s birthday dinner was held is a celebrity hot spot where paparazzi often queue outside to photograph famous diners as they leave.

A video posted by the Daily Mail showed the couple and their guests leaving the restaurant and then Tarek called his driver to pick them up. Instead of waiting in the restaurant for their ride, they hugged the guests goodbye and stood on the sidewalk for more than five minutes, happily posing and answering photographers’ questions, until a large black luxury bus arrived to take the couple away. to hunt.

The El Moussas are expecting their first baby together in early 2023. Their new HGTV show, “The Flipping El Moussas,” will debut around the same time.
