Yesterday, to kick off the first official day of summer, Lifetime announced its reality TV summer premieres.
In addition to a brand new Little Women: LA spinoff, Little Women: Couples Retreat, we have the return of both Dance Moms and Project Runway to look forward to. As for new reality TV shows, get ready for So Sharp, featuring the University of Louisville Dance Team, and Growing Up Supermodels. Look below for more about each premiere.
If you watch Little Women: LA and/or Little Women: NY, you know that Lila Call and Terra Jole cannot stand each other. They have come to blows on both of the Lifetime reality shows, but I figured that Lila would be somewhat happy that Terra is the first little person to go on Dancing With the Stars, right? Well, as per usual, Lila has a lot to say about Terra being on the show and a lot to say about Terra herself.
I understand why Terra and Lila do not like each other and I feel no need to rehash it, but why do they still need to be talking about each other and talking about new things at that? Just leave the past in the past and do not stir up new drama. But then again, these girls are famous for being on reality shows so drama is par for the course and encouraged. What was I thinking? If you live for the controversy, you’ll definitely be interested in Lila’s opinion about Terra on Dancing With the Stars.
Looks like we are about the meet the newest member of Little Women: NY with the arrival of Katie Snyder’s baby girl! On last week’s episode, Katie was being rushed to the hospital after a blow up at the laundromat with resident meddlers, Dawn Lang and Lila Call. Is it incredibly over the top to be accosting a pregnant woman when she is due any day? Sure! Do these gals seem to care? NOPE.
We join Katie at the hospital, where she is anxiously waiting to give birth with mom, Kathie, and waste of space boyfriend/baby daddy, PJ. She had another week to go but it looks like the baby is coming now.
We last saw the Little Women: NY in the midst of some serious baby shower drama. If you weren’t keeping up, an uninvited Lila Call decided her drama desire to be there was more important than an actual invite to frenemy Katie Snyder’s special day. Jessica Capri, who planned the whole thing, was left to try and kick Lila out on her own while Katie was unexpectedly called in by the doctor and thus, missed her own baby shower.
We resume with Jess storming out of her own house and the party she planned, with the shower guests looking on, totally bewildered. Jason Perez does his best to explain to Lila that this is just like the time when he brought Terra Jole to their apartment and Lila threw a hissy fit because she wasn’t invited. Nice try, Jason, but that wilted purple feather covering half of Lila’s head is not going to allow any logic to sink into her brain right now. Dawn Lang tries to jump in but Jason shuts her down immediately as the guests look on. Someone pop some damn popcorn already!
After watching a whole episode of the Little Women: NY hold multiple interventions in one action-packed hour, I’m ready for my own intervention! But tonight is a double header and we are treated to another drama-filled episode, so no rest in recaps here.
Katie Snyder and boyfriend, PJ, decide to have a maternity photo shoot to create memories of her pregnancy. Jessica Capri stops by to talk about planning Katie’s baby shower. Katie is OK with everyone coming EXCEPT Lila Call. Jess agrees and is ready to get planning.
Last week’s episode of Little Women: NY ended with a distraught Jazmin Lang revealing that a very pregnant Katie Snyder has been smoking. We pick up in the same spot this week, with Jazmin showing video evidence of the event and the group deciding to join Dawn Lang on the judgment train to condemn Katie for her reckless behavior.
Never one to let an opportunity pass to make the topic about her, Lila Call starts crying because she is an addict too and Katie’s addiction reminds her of her own. The group decides as a whole to speak with Katie and she can then make the choice on her own as to whether or not she will continue smoking. Jason Perez thinks it’s better to do something rather than nothing in this case.
After fireworks during a night out of belly dancing, the Little Women: NY think it’s about time to get away and plan a camping trip to bond and maybe even try and have fun. Let’s see if a little fresh air can mend the rift between Jazmin Lang and sister-in-law/ultimate ball-buster, Dawn Lang.
Jazmin meets up with roomie Jason Perez to discuss her issues with Dawn. Jason believes in tough love but thinks Dawn expects Jazmin to be just like her and that’s not fair. He questions if maybe Dawn resents Jazmin for taking her only brother away and would like to give her the benefit of the doubt but thinks her judgmental nagging is becoming too much to bear. Jason thinks if he can invite Dawn and Jazmin over to his parent’s house to see a loving family dynamic, it might help.
Jazmin is on the hunt for a roommate now that her husband, David Lang, is moving to Florida for work. True to form, Dawn said “hell to the nah” about Jazmin moving in, so Jazmin decides to stop by Jessica’s apartment to see if she can crash there. Unfortunately for Jazmin, a pregnant Katie has already taken that slot. Katie mentions she knows David and Dawn from back in the day and Jazmin tells Katie how crappy of a sister-in-law she is. Jessica makes the obvious observation that Dawn is a hater.
