‘Don’t really know him, but I sure hope so,’ the Flip or Flop star, 39, added.
The couple’s comments came the same day Haack took to social media and clarified that she met Hall in the spring of 2021, and that she wanted to keep their relationship private ‘before the tornado (media attention) hit.’
In her lengthy Instagram post, Christina appeared to defend the new relationship from the haters social media, being that it comes less than a year from her split from former spouse Ant Anstead.
‘I met Josh when I wasn’t in a state of fear or fight-or-flight … I had taken time off social, hired a spiritual coach and smoked a Bufo toad (which basically reset my brain and kicked out years of anxiety in 15 mins),’ she wrote alongside a picture of the couple enjoying an ocean view.
The toxin from the ‘Bufo toad,’ commonly known as Colorado river toad or the Sonoran desert toad, secretes a powerful venom which can be harvested and smoked to achieve a high.

‘I may be a bit crazy and I’m definitely not perfect but I will never live my life based on other peoples judgments or opinions. We pride ourselves on never judging others and always wanting others to be happy and we wish others would have the same respect,’ Haack shared.
The Anaheim, California native ended the post by taking a shot at those haters, writing, ‘So yes “another relationship” and guess what. I’m 38 -I’ll do what I want.’
