The Flip or Flop stars were all smiles on the red carpet, donning coordinating black outfits — a tuxedo and bow tie for him and a short dress with long sheer sleeves for her.
The former couple, whose HGTV show was not nominated for any awards, joked about their breakup while presenting the winner of the Outstanding Entertainment News Program award.
“It is kind of fitting because I think we’ve been on each and every one about 100 times per month, so they know us pretty well,” Tarek told Extra.
“Only for the past few months,” Christina added.
Christina, 33, also shared a photo with her ex on Instagram to commemorate the event.
“Fun evening presenting at the day time Emmy awards,” she captioned the image. “And super excited to start filming a brand new season of #fliporflop.”
The duo have signed on for more episodes of their hit series Flip or Flop — extending the current seventh season to 20 episodes.
“Tarek and I have been working together for a long time and we look forward to continuing to work together on Flip or Flop,” Christina told PEOPLE in a exclusive statement. Adds Tarek, 35, “From the beginning, HGTV has shown Christina and me tremendous support and we are excited to go out there and flip many more houses for Flip or Flop.”
The couple split in May 2016 — after a tearful Christina called 911 reporting Tarek had taken a gun into a forested park behind their Yorba Linda, Calif. home — but continued to publicly play house through December 2016 when holiday-themed promos featuring the pair were airing on HGTV even as news of their split broke. Tarek filed for divorce from his wife after seven years of marriage, his lawyer confirmed to PEOPLE in January.

Christina has admitted that she and Tarek had been driving to set separately for months before going public about their split, but that continuing to film and hosting lucrative seminars together “is just normal to us,” she told PEOPLE in February. “We had fun onstage together and went home to different houses, but we both went home happy. It’s comfortable for us to work together,” she added of doing an appearance with Tarek in Las Vegas on Feb. 10.
Tarek is currently living in Newport Beach and told PEOPLE in March that he’s currently “adjusting” to splitting custody of daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 20 months, “pretty much 50-50” with Christina. “We had a talk and said, ‘We still want the kids to understand we’re a unit—that we’re still a family even if we’re not together,’ ” he said.
