Tarek El Moussa shares update on Frank ‘The Tank’ Miller
Fox411: ‘Flip or Flop’ stars Tarek El Moussa took to Instagram to share an update on his beloved friend, and focus partner Frank ‘The Tank’ Miller’s battle with cancer.
Tarek El Moussa is bouncing back from a bad fall he took on Monday. The HGTV star injured himself after tripping over a rouge baby gate and later discovered that the flop was caught on security cameras.
From the video recordings, El Moussa seemed to have a handle on things at first. He managed to open the gate, but then lost his balance, tripping over himself and falling head-first and over the top of the gate, landing on his back. Of course in some pain from the fall, from El Moussa remained on the ground while grabbing his stomach and kicking his legs in the air.
Without shame that the dryer was caught on tape, the 36-year-old reality star took to Instagram and later shared surveillance camera images of the fall with his followers.
???? when life kicks you down, ALWAYS get back up!! If it’s a rogue baby gate…take your time! Well folks…I have a huge gash in my stomach from the landing with all my weight on the corner?? it hurt so bad!! Happy that all my employees have a kick!! Thank you team??? Apparently I was too fast today! I have more injuries of this baby gate then dirt bikes and go kart racing together ????
“When life kicks you down, ALWAYS get back up!! If it is a rough baby gate…take your time!”, he said in his Instagram caption, adding several crying-laughing face emojis. “Well people…I have a huge gash in my stomach from the landing with all my weight on the corner. it hurt so bad!! Happy that all my employees got a kick out of it!”
But a little fall is nothing compared to what El Moussa has undergone in the last few years. The real estate agent and father of two recently opened up to Us Weekly in an exclusive interview about his struggle with both the thyroid and testicular cancer.
“No joke, I thought I was going to die,” the “Flip or Flop” star told Us Weekly. “I was like, ‘Two forms of cancer?'”
In addition to his diagnosis of cancer, El Moussa also has gone through a very public separated from his wife and “Flip or Flop” co-star, Christina.
Although the TV couple are no longer together, El-Moussa acknowledged Christina’s support, while he was fighting cancer.
“They helped me a lot. She made sure that I took all my medications and she had to make some meals for me.”
Currently, El Moussa, is focused on the family and the advocacy of the health awareness for men.
