Tarek and Christina El Moussa are seeking the help of a life coach amid their very public split.
The "Flip or Flop" stars met with Tim Story for an intimate dinner in Orange County, according to TMZ. There are no plans to reconcile and get back together, but it was Tarek's idea to talk about their split with Story.
And if there's anyone that can help the estranged couple, it's Story. He has quite the client roster -- having previously worked with Kanye West, Charlie Sheen and Christian Slater.
The HGTV couple announced their split in January, and their breakup has taken several nasty turns since then.

Huge shout out to my girl right here @cazeb ... My best friend - turned publicist extraordinaire - has been by my side since we were 14 years old ... she has always supported me and had my best interest at heart- and during this difficult time she has been a ray of positivity and such a role model ... Cassie you are the best friend anyone could ask for and I am so lucky to have you in my life. Here's to always laughing together and finding joy in every hardship ... C&C ❤
I've never met a group of more positive, fun-loving, funny... all around amazing guys... filming 7 seasons of #FlipOrFlop has been a breeze because of them. I ❤️ each and every one of you. @hgtv

News of Tarek's alleged secret affair with their two children's nanny, who was 23 at the time, surfaced right after their divorce announcement. He revealed earlier this month that he actually dated her for a bit:
"I did date her for a month," he said. "I was going through a tough time, and she's amazing. I never held hands with her around the kids, though. Now I'm not dating anyone specifically. It will be a long time before I'm in a relationship."
His estranged wife recently broke up with family contractor Gary Anderson, who they both worked with on their show. Tarek admitted a couple weeks back that the romance bothered him, at first, but now he's over it: "I've totally moved on."
Christina and Tarek have also candidly told their respective sides to the story in separate interviews.
RELATED: Hilarious thoughts you have while watching an HGTV show:
"I'm a stay at home mom and my husband works retail and our budget is a conservative $500,000" -hgtv EVERYTIME https://t.co/yloDQ3cjed
all I aspire to have in my future is a marriage like Chip and Joanna Gaines
nothing gets me more hype than when they pick the right house on House Hunters International
the homebuyers on HGTV be like i want a one-story home w a second floor, enough rooms for 13 kids, ocean view, my budget is $10
if you can't handle me at my rerun of property brothers, you don't deserve me at my new episode of house hunters international
Im at the point where I want to move to Texas just so I can live in a house remodeled and decorated by Chip and Joanna Gaines
I yell at the people on HGTV the way guys yell at the TV during a big game
I watch HGTV a lot here lately, and now I've realized that I have seriously turned into my mom. 🙃
Every episode of flip or flop:
Tarek: "WE'RE ALREADY SO OVER BUDGET THIS COULD FALL THROUGH THIS IS GONNA BE TIGHT"
*makes $60,000 profit*
Hi, I'm Nicole and I like to yell at people at HGTV who want to live on boats for some reason.
I wanna be HGTV famous
*interviewing for House Hunters*
HGTV: Do you agree on anything?
Couple: No. Never.
HGTV: PERFECT. You're on.
me at age 10: why do adults like HGTV
me 10 years later: tile floors? with THOSE cabinets?? ugh, you're killing me, deborah!!!
I don't understand how these people DON'T cry when they see their houses. Cause I cry, EVERY TIME. #fixerupper @joannagaines @chippergaines
The rush I get when I correctly pick the house the people on house hunters pick must be what heroin feels like.

Tarek revealed on "Today" that he was also told he had testicular cancer shortly after his thyroid cancer diagnosis in 2013. In a later interview with "The Doctors," he admitted that terrible communication amid his cancer battle and their rise to fame contributed to the end of their relationship.
Similarly, Christina confessed to People that she experienced health issues of her own -- a miscarriage. Just like Tarek's cancer, her miscarriage added strain to their marriage.
"It was too soon for me," she said. "I was overwhelmed. The tension between me and Tarek was high. [...] We weren't able to properly communicate anymore. It got to the point where we weren't even driving to set together."
The couple have continued working on their HGTV show, which has gained phenomenal ratings since their divorce announcement.
