Last night we witnessed the many pregnancies of Little Women: LA progressing, with some hullabaloo along the way concerning head injuries past and domestic sketchiness present. And Terra Jole is loving every messy minute of it!
After the ladies were informed of Briana Renee’s health scare last week, they are left to question what the real truth is about her “pre-term labor” claims. And whether Matt Ericson (Grundhoffer) is basically holding her hostage in a hospital bed somewhere in a dark basement, allowing her to Face Time friends and communicate a Morse Code “H-E-L-P” signal through subtle eyebrow movement. Or maybe he’s just a misunderstood guy who’s trying to take care of his wife out of the public spotlight? Nah. Basement kidnapping it is!
On July 18, 2016, Traci announced on Instagram that she would undergo spinal surgery that day. She did not give a lot of details, but she did use the hash tag “#littlepeopleproblems” so it is safe to assume that the procedure has something to do with her dwarfism.
Welcome back to Little Women: LA, the show that never stops filming! It seems like season 4 was just wrapping when BAM! Season 5 is suddenly upon us. I, for one, couldn’t be happier. Lifetime must know that they cannot take a hiatus with these women, lest someone chuck a glass at someone else’s head between seasons. Plus, nearly everyone has had or is having babies these days, so every minute counts. I say, let’s just strap Go Pros to everyone’s heads and be done with it!
When we left off on season 4, Christy McGinity and Terra Jole had temporarily laid down their swords over their altercation at line dancing night, with Christy bitterly reviving the whole mess at the LWLAReunion. She still claims a concussion diagnosis. Tonya Banks had forced convinced her ex, Kerwin, to leave his lady friend and take up with her. Jasmine Sorge’s hubby was relegated to busing tables at his father in law’s restaurant, having not found work close to home. Elena Gant and hubby Preston were expecting twin boys – awwwww! And Briana Renee and Matt Ericson (Grundhoffer) were, well, how do I put this? A HELLISH MESS. Oh – also, Jasmine’s pregnant, Terra’s pregnant, Briana’s pregnant, you’re pregnant, I’m pregnant (kidding!). It’s a virtual baby bonanza up in here!
Suffice to say, it’s going to be a season packed with drama, babies, and fractured friendships. In a recent interview, Terra Jole spoke out about the state of her relationship with former bestie Briana. An avid hater of all things Matt (which doesn’t really separate her from the rest of humanity), Terra says she still doesn’t want to throw away a lifelong friendship with Briana. Terra claims she and Briana are currently on speaking terms but, “Whether it’s great or horrible is a whole new story.”
For a woman who has lashed out at viewers for judging her too harshly, Briana Renee sure loves to spread her dirt around in public! Telling the press this week that her parents are forbidden from meeting their grandchild, her new son Maverick Jax, the Little Women: LA star claims it’s all “out of protection for my son.”
Briana, who is married to the illustrious sexting aficionado, Matt Ericson (Grundhoffer), accuses her parents of spreading lies about her and her marriage. In an interview this spring, Briana’s father told media sources that he was afraid for his daughter, who he deemed “gullible,” and that Matt was a master manipulator who controlled every aspect of Briana‘s life, including her phone communication. Briana hasn’t spoken to her parents in over a year.
We all know (in disturbing detail) about Matt’s despicable behavior: that he was explicitly sexting other women while his wife, Briana, was pregnant with their son. That he ultimately blamed Briana for having “a part to play” in his gross misdeeds. That he’s an angry, vengeful, and downright frightening dude. We also know that Briana, in her codependent and depressed state, ultimately forgave her bad boy for all of this – and more. But apparently, she’s not too pleased with a new turn of events. Trans model Plastic Martyr – a former friend of Briana’s – has already filmed a scene with LWLA star Christy McGinity Gibel in which she describes the “naked photos and sick messages over Instagram” Matt sent her.
Little Women: LA has been bursting at the seams with babies lately, with everyone trying to getting pregnant, getting pregnant, and welcoming new babies. This week two of the show’s starts – Elena Gant and Briana Manson – welcomed their new bundles of joy.
Elena simply revealed on Instagram that her twin babies had arrived, but offered up no further details on when the babies arrived, names etc. In all likelihood, she’s waiting for the new season to share information on the babies’ arrival! She shared, “Had my babies!!! Back on set #littlewomenla season 5 coming in July on @lifetimetv!!”
