Before we begin our recap of Little Women: LA, it’s of some interest to note that Briana Renee did a bit of damage control in an interview posted just hours before the episode aired. She claimed that her sister, Tiana, falsely accused her husband Matt Ericson of abusive tendencies on last week’s show. And she’s hoppin’ mad about it. Briana says Tiana’s accusations were “a complete, blatant straight-up lie” and “disgusting.” Furthermore, Briana maintains she never told Tiana she thought it was “ok” to hit a woman, although Tiana says differently. In other news: Christy McGinity Gibel lost in a car accident lawsuit brought against her in The People’s Court today. Whah?
Very interesting times we’re living in with the ladies of LWLA, indeed. Now, on to the show! Terra Jole and Tonya Banks are washing their doggies at the pooch spa. Terra vents about her discussion with Briana and Matt at Elena Gant’s Little Palettes party. The conversation went something like this: Briana, do you want to reconcile with your family? (Terra and Christy) I’m fierce! (Briana). They are dead to us and will never meet their grandchildren! (Matt). So, it didn’t go well.
Another baby race? Say it ain’t so, Little Women: LA! We already know one cast member is expecting twins, but who? Christy McGinity and hubby Todd have also decided to pursue adoption in lieu of undergoing more IVF treatments. And Briana Renee has been hinting at her desire to spawn procreate with Matt since day one. Now it seems Terra Jole is pressuring Joe for more kids too. So, here we are. The race is on…again!
Elena Gant and Terra are out getting Elena’s tattoos lasered off. Elena says she wants them gone since she’s preparing to have kids (that makes sense…how?), but the process takes three years. No time like the present to start, I guess! The ladies have recovered from their bumps and bruises ala the motocross event, but have not recovered from their issues with each other: specifically Elena’s beef with Jasmine Sorge. Elena hasn’t invited Jasmine to her eye shadow palettes launch because she is DONE with that fake somebody.
Who knew that little people having arguments about welfare checks, baby daddies, and twerking would attract so many viewers? Lifetime’s latest installment in their Little Women franchise, Little Women: Atlanta, raked in 1.3 million viewers during its premiere episode Wednesday night!
The new series, which follows Little Women: LA (now in its fourth season) in its Wednesday time slot, showcases six new little women living in the Atlanta area. But their geographic location isn’t the only difference between this cast and LA (or Little Women: New York, for that matter).
The first ladies of Lifetime’s ‘Little Women’ franchise are back for season FOUR! This season of Little Women: LA sees the gang reunited, minus Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman, for another round of oversized drama, including more friendship fallouts and – of course – more pregnancy news. (Has there been a season yet that didn’t involve marriage or pregnancy hullabaloo of some sort, I ask you? Looks like this one’s no different!)
We start out at Jasmine Arteaga Sorge’s home, where she’s fixin’ to throw a Mommy Cocktail Party. It’s been only about a month since Elena Gant and Saint Preston’s vow renewal in Hawaii, which means it’s also been a mere hot minute since the epic throw down between Briana Renee(formerly Manson), Matt Ericson, and…every other human being on the show. Jasmine is still sporting the spider lashes, and she’s still BFFs with Briana, who shows up first to the soiree.
Even though Traci Harrison-Tsou is busy taking care of her new baby, hopefully she’ll make an appearance or two! Last season’s newbie Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman will not be returning.
We already know that the ladies are going to have plenty of drama this time around. Terra and Christy’saltercation will be shown later in the season, so we’ll get to judge the severity of that head injury/glass toss for ourselves. I’m looking forward to seeing how that plays out and whether or not Christy or Terra will leave the show over it since Christy has now filed charges against Terra.
It’s been a bad week for Christy McGinity Gibel! Over the weekend the star of Little Women: LA was hit in the head with a glass, courtesy of cast mate Terra Jole, which landed Christy in the hospital with head injuries. The physical altercation, which took place while the ladies were filming season 4 of LWLA has now turned into a police matter, as Christy has since filed a police report against Terra claiming “assault with a deadly weapon.”
In an unrelated event, Christy is also being taken to court over a fender bender that occurred just before Christmas. The driver whose car Christy smashed into is claiming damages in the amount of $3,575.
But wonder no more! Later yesterday, People Magazine revealed that 4-season cast mate and producer of LWLA, Terra Jole, was the other main party involved. According to a source on the scene, Christy and Terra (among others) went to the bar to whoop it up with a little line dancing, but ultimately “got into a screaming match,” which led to a physical altercation.
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.
