Is it just me, or has this been the most exhausting season of Little Women: LA yet? We are on episode sixteen, for fudge’s sake! Thank goodness, next week is the season 5 finale, after which Kevin Frazier will return to lay down the smack on certain cast members (Christy McGinity and Terra Jole) during the 2-part reunion.
After last week’s Casino Night exploded like a dirty bomb in everyone’s faces, Christy is hell bent on getting back “in” with the group. But it’s too little, too late for Briana Renee and Terra, who can’t even stomach the sight of their former friend on a “survivalist retreat” that Tonya Banksdelusionally organizes. Terra is more concerned about meeting her partner for Dancing With The Stars, who she suddenly laments will be taller than her. Ya think!?
On last night’s Little Women: LA, Christy McGinity Gibel rolled the dice… and lost again. In an effort to extend a virtually rotten olive branch, Christy invited the ladies to a Casino Night. She also suspiciously invited surprise guests to the event, including Little Women: NYhenchman defender, Dawn Lang. But her passive-aggressive (emphasis on the aggressive) tactics, which included revealing her head injury medical records within the invitation, didn’t do much to win friends and influence enemies. Christy was, as ever, her very own worst enemy.
Meanwhile, Terra Jole and Joe Gnoffo are still on the baby name hamster wheel. She firmly wants D’Artanyan, although they’ve already agreed on Grayson. Joe concedes that – FINE! – they can add D’Artanyan to Grayson’s middle name. Terra stops whining, and concludes that she’ll be calling this kid D’Artanyan whenever she feels like it. Hmmmmph!
On last night’s Little Women: LA, Joe Gnoffo and Terra Jole went 32 rounds over the naming of their newborn son while Briana Renee went to buy a gun! Because, you know how it goes when your husband acts like a toolbox on national TV, causing otherwise balanced people everywhere to feel rather murdery toward him? Yeah, that’s what happened. Thus, the many “death threats” coming Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer]‘s way of late aren’t making Briana feel too secure about her safety. Just another day in the life of this Ride or DieTryin’ couple.
But of course, Briana blames Christy McGinity for the death threats. Cause… why not?! Meanwhile, Elena Gant tries to talk sense into Christy’s head about smoothing things over with the ladies. But an utterly exhausted Christy is not up for another beat down by the ladies. Yes, she’s (sort of) ready to apologize, but her heart’s not in it.
But, let’s start on a positive note! Even though they’ve butted heads on more than one occasion over the years, Christy says she’ll always have a true friend in Tonya Banks. “I think with Tonya nothing would really tear us a part. Tonya’s really solid. I am solid and we’re really solid in ourselves. And, so we know if something … goes on that day, she knows to call me, I know to call her, and we’re cool,” says Christy.
Last night on Little Women: LA, Terra Jole faced some frightening complications during the C-section birth of her second child (thank goodness we know all is okay, real time!). It didn’t help matters that charming hubby Joe Gnoffo suspiciously scheduled himself to be “out of the country” just days before the blessed event – something Terra was none too happy about.
Also, Jasmine Sorge has apparently gone through deep counseling to get over her very serious issue of not being a dog-person, because she’s back on the scene this week looking smug as ever as Christy McGinity all but BEGS her to be allowed back into the friend group. I’m sorry, but Jasmine being the gatekeeper of who’s “in” and who’s “out” among these ladies is just laughable. Not to mention, it’s totally the position Jasmine has been vying for since she first appeared on the scene. I half expected her to rise up from the cafe chair after her conversation with Christy, shouting maniacally, “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!!!!” – Highlander style. This chick is slithery.
It’s so crazy that Terra Jolethrew herself into Dancing With the Stars just a couple weeks after giving birth to her second child. I’m a (relatively) healthy person and I feel like I would die from the rigor of competing on Dancing with the Stars, so I have no idea how a new mom is able to do that so soon. So it’s really not at all surprising that Terra opened up about how strenuous the show is on her body.
Not only is Terra a mother to a newborn, but she is also a little person, so she really has a lot to manage when it comes to competing in such a physical competition. And even with all that, she is still doing very well on show.
Since the season began, Christy McGinity has spiraled down into a pit largely of her own making. Now that she has no farther to fall, it’s time for the rest of these Little Women: LA ladies to start turning on each other! Which is just what happens this week when Jasmine Sorgedecides she needs to confront Terra Jole about whether she’s a true friend or not. Because she’s not a pet owner. If you’re still scratching your head over that one, well, so am I.
Before we descend into total madness, we travel to the plastic surgeon’s with Elena Gant, who’s brought Terra along for support. Elena wants to get her a$$ stretch marks lasered off, which is rich considering she inserted implants into her butt before getting pregnant. I guess it’s reality check time. Elena tells Terra that she was unhappy with Preston’s surprise party, especially because she didn’t want to be around that level of drama on her birthday.
