Today I was just thinking about how I hope season 4 of Little Women: LA (premiering January 27 on Lifetime) pans out to be a kinder, gentler season than last year’s. Alas, this troubling news item popped up today and crushed those dreams in one fell swoop.
TMZ is reporting that 4-season LWLA cast member, Christy McGinity Gibel was hospitalized with a brain injury after being attacked by two cast mates over the weekend. What the WHAT!? Which cast mates injured Christy is anyone’s guess at this point, and I will refrain from conjecture…for now. But whoever it was did some major damage, apparently, as Christy left the brawl with not one, but TWO brain contusions.

The attack, which occurred at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, CA, this past weekend was so serious that producers of the show took Christy to urgent care. After she couldn’t shake her headache, TMZ reports that Christy then checked herself in to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Christy’s husband, Todd Gibel, said in an interview outside of the hospital that “Christy suffered a trauma to her head” and that while the incident happened a few days ago, she’s still suffering headaches.
“Unfortunately we just found out that these headaches could last for weeks – possibly months,” Todd added. “She thought this was…a bump on the head” and that it would go away. “But it’s not showing any signs of going away,” he says.
A source told TMZ that alcohol was not likely a factor as “the ladies were drinking iced tea,” and viewers of the show also know that Christy has been clean and sober for quite some time now.
Well, alcohol or no alcohol, the bottom line seems to be this: Someone put their hands on someone, and the result ain’t good.
After last season’s HIGH DRAMA surrounding cast mate Briana (Rene’e) Manson’s secret marriage to
total d-bag Matt Ericson, and the subsequent 2-part Reunion From Hell, I thought we’d seen some of the worst case scenarios unfold already! But it looks like season 4 finds the cast, which includes Christy, Briana, Tonya Banks, Elena Gant, Jasmine Sorge, and Terra Jole, in more hot water than ever.
