Little Women: LA's Terra Jole Discusses Breast Cancer Scare

This season of Little Women: LA seems to have one emerging theme: health. Most of the cast is facing health challenges – from pregnancy complications to surgeries to strokes – that range from troubling to downright frightening.

After returning from her time on Dancing With The Stars last year, Terra Jole faced surgery for three hernias sustained during the grueling workouts – which she engaged in mere weeks after giving birth to her second child. Now Terra is facing another potential health scare: breast cancer. She opened up about feeling vulnerable sharing the details with the world right now, but did say she’s received two doctor’s opinions thus far and is “still waiting on additional results” of recent testing.

DANCING WITH THE STARS - NICK VIALL - The celebrity cast of

I had no idea that William Shatner has such strong opinions about The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars, but I cannot stop laughing. William has been adamantly campaigning to get Nick Viall booted from the ballroom in a series of impassioned tweets. I feel like I have finally identified the one person who takes reality TV more seriously than I do.

Sure, I feel bad for Nick, but Shatner’s devotion to both of these shows is just entertainment to me. He went on and on an on and on trying to rally support to vote for every contestant other than Nick.

Terra Jole has been feeling the wrath of her friends ever since returning from Dancing With The Stars – especially from former bestie and cast mate, Elena Gant. The Little Women: LA star and producer isn’t sure if it’s jealousy, bitterness, “I told you so” syndrome – or an unhealthy mix of all three. Whatever the case may be, she sure hasn’t been feeling the love. She has, however, been healing from the many health issues she faced as a result of competing on DWTS only weeks after having a C-section.

Terra breaks down the episode, beginning with uncharacteristically kind words for cast mate (and sworn enemy!) Christy McGinity Gibel, who sadly suffered a mini-stroke during neck surgery that left her with multiple health hurdles to overcome. Terra offers, “When it comes to Christy, it is really crazy to see the chaos that she’s having to deal with and I honestly wish her good health.”

Little Women: LA Recap - Terra Jole

Terra Jole came back to reality on last night’s Little Women: LA, and that reality was filled with health problems and broken friendships. As Terra prepares for hernia surgery, Christy McGinity Gibel begins the slow process of recovering from neck surgery – including complications which resulted in a mini-stroke. Sadly, the group is so fractured at this point, they can barely support Terra or Christy in their time of need, focusing instead on their resentments and anger. Case in point: Briana Renee and Elena Gant. 

Terra returns home after her press junket, which followed elimination from Dancing With the Stars. Tonya Banks has been Terra’s sole support system throughout her stint on the show, while Joe Gnoffo has basically been imprisoned with their two children (he can’t leave the house with them, given his own health challenges). After coming home, Joe admits he’s glad DWTS is over. Terra admits she placed a ton of pressure on him to single-parent their kids while she was gone, but now she has to face the music – motherhood and hernia surgery.

Terra Jole’s friends have been pretty vocal about the Little Women: LA star’s all-consuming stint on Dancing With The Stars this past year. But now that her run is over, Terra reflects on how the group’s relationships have changed – and fractured – since filming. Because she apparently doesn’t get enough camera time to speak her mind on the show, Terra has taken to blogging each week to dissect the drama. And to shade her cast mates (looking at you, Briana Renee and Matt Ericson!).

It’s not all snark for the ladies, though. Terra compliments Briana on her postpartum body, at least: “Honestly, Briana looks great already. She’s got an awesome body that popped right back into pre-pregnancy shape.”

Little Women: LA Recap: Tough Crowd

Last night on Little Women: LA, Terra Jole makes it to the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars, but her friends seem less than supportive. Christy McGinity Gibel faces complications during neck surgery that we now know sadly brought on a mini-stroke, leaving her to face even more health challenges. Meanwhile, Elena Gant continues to rage against Terra being a “bad friend,” so she tries to force a laugh with Briana Renee and Tonya Banks at a comedy show. As for Jasmine Sorge, she’s just ready to have this dang baby already! And she’s letting her hubby, Chris, know it.

But first, we are forced to follow Briana and Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer] – who, in case he isn’t gross enough, now has GOUT – to the gym. Outfitted in her “Fit & Fierce” tank top, Briana does her best to focus on all things Briana – like her music career, which is currently stalled because this chick cannot sing. She just needs a better voice coach, yo! What does Matt want, you wonder? Well, since his whole body is his “instrument” <dry heave> he wants to use said instrument to become an MMA fighter. At 40. With GOUT. “I’m sorry that your life isn’t enough for you,” snarks Briana. (Shouldn’t she just be glad he’s not sexting his other instrument clear across the nation anymore? Hmm?)

DANCING WITH THE STARS - ERIKA JAYNE WITH GLEB SAVCHENKO - The celebrity cast of

When news broke that Erika Girardi will be a part of next season’s Dancing With the Stars, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans were excited about it, but some people were wondering if we would get to see Erika Girardi or her performance alter ego Erika Jayne.

It seemed pretty obvious to me that this would be more of an Erika Jayne situation, but I figured she would mix a little bit of her every day life in with her DWTS persona. Apparently, that’s not the case though. Erika will be all about the outrageous alter ego and I am all for it.

Dancing with the Stars season 24

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 24 stars this morning on Good Morning America. As expected, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi will be competing.

Erika‘s been paired with pro dancer Gleb Savchenko, who previously danced with Erika’s co-star Lisa Vanderpump. Let’s hope Erika fares better than Lisa. Lisa and Gleb were the second couple eliminated based on votes and scores in Season 16 (but the third to go home after Dorothy Hamill withdrew).

Who is Erika‘s competition? Well, she has her work cut out for her, as she’s up against gymnast Simone Biles, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, Glee (um, hello, dancing!) star Heather Morris, and figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Just to name a few. Check out the full cast list below and let us know if you’ll watch.
