It’s been a few peaceful months since the ladies of Little Women: LA have dragged each other through the wringer. Fall dropped its leaves. Winter brought holiday warmth and cozy feelings for all mankind. The promise of spring is right around the corner. I even did some major deep breathing before hitting “play” on my DVR last night in hopes that peace and harmony will reign supreme on season six.
It seemed all good in the hood when former Bacheloretteleads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.
The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTSwas Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.
It’s been a hot minute since we last saw the ladies of Little Women: LA tearing it up on the small screen. If you’ve been missing the drama, the babies, the gnarly doings of Briana Renee’s ne’er do well husband – then, good news! Tonight, Lifetime premieres season 6, which promises to bring all of that and more.
Terra Jole recently blogged about some highlights from the season ahead, which picked up filming midway through her jaunt on Dancing With The Stars – a feat that left her with health issues, and some relationships to fix. Terra previews, “It’s incredible that we are already starting the crazy world of season six! There’s going to be drama, tears and laughter … with a side of screaming because what would Little Women be without some screaming?!” Exactly.
Peta and Maks headed to New Jersey for the weekend and celebrated their upcoming arrival with family and friends in Brooklyn at the McCarren Hotel. Among the guests: Amber Rose, who is dating Dancing with the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy.
Their baby boy is due any day now!
Check out the photos below. They shared some of the photos on instagram and there’s a gallery from the event down at the bottom, too.
But productionElena Gant thinks it might be worth one more try! So she gets the ladies together for a “land sailing” day in one final attempt to heal that which will never be healed: The bruised egos within this group. (Does anybody else get the sense that this might be Elena’s final swan song on LWLA? She seems Totally. Over. It.) Despite the one-track storyline of Christy v. Everybody this season, I do still hold out hope for this show, which I’ve truly loved watching over the years. So c’mon, ladies, rally! I just can’t quit you!
Even though Maksim Chmerkovskiy has taken breaks from Dancing With the Stars before, it’s hard to imagine the show without him on a permanent basis, but apparently Maks is so done with the show. Who knows if this is true forever, but he does seem pretty serious this time.
And you know what? It makes sense. He is engaged to Peta Murgatroyd and they are expecting their first child together soon, so it is perfectly valid and actually refreshing that he would want to focus on his family life even though he has a red hot career on such a popular reality TV show.
Last night on Little Women: LA, Terra Jole faced some frightening complications during the C-section birth of her second child (thank goodness we know all is okay, real time!). It didn’t help matters that charming hubby Joe Gnoffo suspiciously scheduled himself to be “out of the country” just days before the blessed event – something Terra was none too happy about.
Also, Jasmine Sorge has apparently gone through deep counseling to get over her very serious issue of not being a dog-person, because she’s back on the scene this week looking smug as ever as Christy McGinity all but BEGS her to be allowed back into the friend group. I’m sorry, but Jasmine being the gatekeeper of who’s “in” and who’s “out” among these ladies is just laughable. Not to mention, it’s totally the position Jasmine has been vying for since she first appeared on the scene. I half expected her to rise up from the cafe chair after her conversation with Christy, shouting maniacally, “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!!!!” – Highlander style. This chick is slithery.
