On last night’s Little Women: LA, the group tried to mend fences. But this group of women needs more than a night of toasting marshmallows by the fire to snuff out the ratchet behavior of Tonya Banks and the ultimate pot-stirring that newbie Brittney Guzman is bringing to the this season’s fire pit.
We begin at the batting cages where Brittney is on a date with an old friend, Jordan, she used to date four years or so ago. She’s just been through a bad breakup, so wants to get back on the horse. Her ex-boyfriend Max cheated on her while she was on tour with Miley Cyrus. Since Jordan has been recently cheated on too, Brittney wonders if they’d be a good match. They confess they’ve missed each other, but Brittney plays it coy about seeing him again.
Well, last night’s Little Women: LApicked up right where we left off. In the tornado of Tonya Banks and Jasmine Sorge. Last week, Jasmine stormed out of a party after surviving multiple confrontations with Tonya, all stemming from some trite slight (or perceived slight) that Tonya’s hanging on to from a year ago. As Jasmine tries to flee the scene, Tonya “touches” her head after Jasmine put her hand in Tonya’s face. As far as Jasmine is concerned, Tonya is trash. As far as Tonya is concerned, Jasmine is a sh*t stirrer. They vow to never be friends. (Pinky swear.)
The next day Briana Manson and Tonya meet for lunch to debrief. Since Jasmine is the only friend she has left who accepts her relationship with Matt, she wants to keep the peace. In order to do that, Tonya claims Jasmine needs to apologize or she’s “gonna snatch that wig off her head.” Because Tonya is all class, all the time. At her home, Jasmine cries to her husband about Tonya’s ratchet behavior. She expects more of little people, and just wants to get along with the group. She’s not ready to be around Tonya, but will have to face the music at Christy McGinty and Todd’s upcoming anniversary party.
On last night’s Little Women: LA, tension reaches the breaking point between Jasmine Sorge and Tonya Banks. But before they get into it, Tonya is taking Elena Gant out for a spin in her new dream car, purchased with three seasons of bitterness on reality TV! Tonya’s had her car modified for a little person, so she takes advantage of her new ride by driving Elena up to a mountain peak to talk some trash. Elena fills Tonya in on the epic argument that broke out at Jasmine’s party the night before about Briana Manson’s questionable relationship with boyfriend Matt. Elena thinks Briana needs advice and support, but “sneaky a$$ Jasmine” (according to Tonya) is Briana’s only ally at this point.
Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman is moving into her new house with the help of her friend, Shelby, who is also a little person. They valiantly heave and heft boxes as much as they can before sitting down for a chat break. Brittney knows her gigolo dad will miss her, but it’s time to get her own place. She fills Shelby in on the new circle of girls she’s been hanging with, which includes a few former lovahs of her daddy’s. (That was sort of gross to type.) Christy McGinty, Briana, and – according to Brittney – even marriedElena were tangled up with her Latin playa’ father at some point. To stir up some sh*t, Brittney’s dad recently suggested throwing a barbecue to get all of these ladies together. So they can claw each others’ eyes out?
Well, we survived the premiere episode of Little Women: LA, which revealed a leaner, meaner Tonya Banks coming hard for newbie Jasmine Sorge, who Tonya claims to have some long-standing beef with over a social media faux pas with her ex-boyfriend Trevore. Fellow newbie Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman also dropped a nuclear bomb on Terra Jole and Tonya last week that rocked their worlds: Elena Gant used to “date” Brittney’s father while married to Saint Preston the Longsuffering, according to Brittney. So the season was set with some ratchet tension right off the bat! And last night’s episode continued the theme of Messiness with a capital M.
Briana Manson is back with Matt, a move that doesn’t sit well with her friends or family. She and Christy McGinty go shopping for lingerie and…sex toys? They tie each other up and slap each other around a bit before getting into a deeper conversation about Christy and Todd’s IVF plans. Briana is shocked to hear they’ll be choosing an average sized embryo rather than a little person (since Christy already has two children who are little people), but Christy wants the healthiest baby possible and stands by her decision. Side note, Christy looks the best she’s ever looked in her talking heads! #beautifulinblue
Well, it’s already time for season three of Little Women: LA, and I’m still left scratching my head over the two-part reunion from last season, which pitted mean girl Terra Jole against Christy McGinty in what looked like a friendship-ending scenario. But, both Terra and Christy are back, along with veteran LWLA castmates Tonya Banks, Briana Manson, and Elena Gant. Joining the cast as newbies are Miley Cyrus dancer Brittney Guzman, aka “Freakabritt,” and Orange County mom, Jasmine Arteaga Sorge. Traci Harrison is not back as an official cast member, but may appear in some scenes with bestie Terra or the group as a whole as the season rolls forward. Reports surface back in June that Traci and hubby Erik are expecting their first child together (yay!), so she stepped back from the show. Traci, about five months pregnant now with an average sized baby, calls her pregnancy “a miracle.”
Now, on to season three! We catch up with new mom Terra at the gym where she’s dancing with Brittney, who Terra’s been friends with via their connection as Miley Cyrus dancers. Terra’s daughter, Penny, is two months old and doing great. Terra hopes to plan a wedding soon, but before then, she’s working on getting back into her pre-mommy body. Briana is hosting a wine event soon, so Terra wants to integrate Brittney into the group – all of whom will be at the event. Brittney knows Tonya, Elena, and Christy in varying degrees already. Briana is new to her, but she’s willing to give the event a go.
Much speculation about their tense, dramatic relationship (anybody remember when Joe threw that pregnancy test stick upon hearing his “beloved” was unexpectedly knocked up!?), Terra and Joe decided to take their marriage vows just a few months after their adorable daughter, Penny, was born in March.
Terra called the day “magical” in an interview with US Weekly. “”Walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams and to finally be able to call Joe my husband — what more can a girl ask for?” she reflected.
As viewers have seen, Traci and Eric have been trying to have a baby since they tied the knot and suffered two miscarriages along the way. They shared those losses with the show’s fans in painful detail on the series, but they are now choosing to keep this pregnancy as intrusion-free as they can.
If you were wondering how long you’d have to wait for a new season of Little Women: LA, wonder no longer! The show returns next month already! And in a double dose, as Terra’s Little Family kicks off another season at the same time! Lifetime is mixing things up with the Little Women: LA season 3 cast, adding two new ladies to the series – Jasmine and “Freakabritt,” aka Brittney Guzman!
The cast shot new promo pics and have shared several on social media, letting the cat out of the bag that there are two new cast members. It also would appear that Traci Harrison is stepping back a little. She’s not featured in the main cast photos/promos, but she’s been included at some of the events they’ve filmed, according to the Instagram of her fellow co-stars. Maybe this is Lifetime’s version of “friend of” instead of “full time member.”
