It looks like Traci Harrison Tsou made the right decision to take a hiatus from the drama of this season’s Little Women LA in order to focus on a healthy pregnancy with hubby Erik. Because Traci has now delivered a healthy average sized baby boy, Jacob Christian Tien-U Tsou! Jacob was born 8 lb., 20 oz. and was 201⁄2 inches long.
Tracitweeted today, “Thursday Nov 12 was the best day of our lives,” with a link to the PEOPLE Magazine story of her son’s birth. She and Erik suffered multiple miscarriages before carrying baby Jacob to term, a feat that doctors had previously told the couple might never happen.
It’s been a season of ups and downs for the Little Women: LA cast. We’ve had it all: newbies who like to stir the pot, Little Boss behavior on fleek, gynecologist appointments that left us visually traumatized, and secret marriages to questionable men. And now it’s time to rehash it all on part one of the 2-part LWLA reunion! Tracey Edmonds hosts the show and asks the ladies the tough questions we’ve wanted answers to for months. Plus, a special guest makes an appearance to clear things up about Matt’s proclivity for sexting nude pics to women who are not his wife.
First of all, the production value of this reunion versus last year’s is much improved. The teams seem to be seated according to alliances, reminiscent of Housewives reunion arrangements. On couch left of screen, we have Elena Gant, Tonya Banks, Christy McGinity, and Terra Jole. To Tracey’s right, we have Briana Manson, Jasmine Sorge, and a blue-wigged Brittney Guzman. After they watch a montage clip of the season’s most dramatic highlights, Tracey asks what it’s been like watching this season back. Terra says she noticed it wasn’t her who started most of the drama this season. Tonya admits she saw herself saying things she didn’t realize she’d said. (Like “heifer” 1,000 times?)
Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman made her mark on this season’s Little Women: LA as one of the newest – and youngest – cast members. And she didn’t hold back when it came to confronting castmate Terra Jole. I got a chance to chat with Brittney yesterday about her reaction to the season, where she and Terra stand now, and what she’s been up to lately (spoiler alert: she met Kylie Jenner on Tyga’s video shoot recently and claims she was a total zero!).
So, do people call you Brittney? Or Freakabritt? “They call me Freakabritt now or Freaka. That’s now my name!”
What did you think of your first experience on reality TV? “It’s been great. Things don’t always seem like they appear. It’s been fun, there’s a lot of drama. At the same time, people will do whatever they can to be the center of attention. And I’m not into that route, unlike some other people.”
How did you fit in on the cast? “Everybody on this show is married and having kids, and I was like 22. I wanted to focus on my career and they wanted me to be in a relationship. But I was the youngest one there, and I wasn’t trying to be tied down!”
Oh, Little Women: LA. Can’t you all just get along? All that’s standing between Elena Gant and her dreams of renewing her vows with hubby Preston are the Pacific Ocean and a small tribe of very dysfunctional women ready to, quite literally, sling mud at each other. This week, the ladies travel to Hawaii for Elena’s event. Because they can’t seem to grasp the fact that Elena’s event is (and should be) the center of attention on this trip, Christy McGintyinvites the couples to a “therapy” session beforehand, in which tempers explode around Briana Manson’s secret wedding to Matt.
As Terra Jole and Joe (and adorable baby Penny!) arrive in Hawaii first, Terra reflects on how angry the entire group is with Briana. No one is sure how to handle seeing her here, with the possible exception of suck-upJasmine Sorge. Terra also doesn’t trust Brittney Guzman, who has betrayed Elena in the past. Here’s hoping the group can rally around Elena for her big day, regardless of their issues. (HA! That was hilarious to type.) As the rest of the gang arrive, Christy voices her wishes for the trip: to have multiple orgasms. “I wanna f**k!” says Christy, “I want doggy style! I want every style!” (Ummm, I want to un-hear these words!)
After Briana Manson dropped a stink bomb on the group last week that she and Matt are already married, this week’s Little Women: LA finds the ladies trying to shift focus back to Elena Gant’s upcoming vow renewal.
We begin at Christy McGinty’s home, where she shares with hubby Todd that Briana spilled her big news. Todd calls the situation “one of the most f*ked up situations I’ve ever heard in my life.” Yep. Even more f*ked up is the fact that Matt (according to Terra Jole’ssources) sent photos of his…uh, Matt Junior…to some random chic a few months back. Which Briana now flippantly writes off as a “mistake.” Todd wants to look up evidence of Briana and Matt’s marriage, so he employs his best googling skills to check out the actual wedding date: 4/19. This means, at the time of filming, Briana has been married FOUR MONTHS already without telling anyone. Does this also mean the d*ck pics in question were sent during a state of wedded bliss? Hmmm. Christy just feels betrayed that this lie has gone on so long right under her nose.
On this week’s Little Women: LA, it’s time for Elena Gant’s bachelorette party! Terra Jole and Tonya Banks are planning a Palm Springs getaway, but they have strict instructions that it can’t be tacky. So…why are Terra and Tonya planning it, then? After their day at the track, the group is on the outs with Briana Manson, who Tonya is particularly angry with for not showing up at day 3 of her video shoot. As for Terra, she is convinced that all of Briana’s issues (and her own issues with Briana) stem from her relationship with Matt.
Elena has been checking in on Briana since their blowup at the race track, and is having Briana over for a poolside chat at her home. Elena wants to support Briana and wants her to be at her bachelorette party, no matter what the rest of the group thinks. Briana is hesitant to attend, though, considering she was booted out of the last event by mean-girl Terra. In the end, Elena promises to talk to the rest of the girls to ensure no one confronts Briana about Matt on the trip. Briana promises to give Elena an answer in the morning.
On last night’s Little Women: LA, the ladies take their drama to the racetrack, where tensions escalate between Briana Manson and Tonya Banks. So, let’s jump right in! Terra Jole comes to Tonya’s house bearing a bouquet and announcing their plans to head to the races. Huge hats are, of course, in order. So the ladies begin assembling their super gaudy head gear. Terra invited everyone to the event, including Briana’s much-maligned boyfriend, Matt. Because in Terra’s world, she’s being the bigger person.
But it’s not Matt on Tonya’s sh*t list these days. It’s Briana! Because she ditched filming for day 2 of Tonya’s Little Boss Body workout video, having had enough of Tonya’s low rent production and Little Boss Meltdowns (TM) on day 1.Tonya says Briana gave her no notice, thereby forcing Tonya to cut all of Briana’s footage from day 1 because it wouldn’t work fluidly with day 2 shots. (Question: Did Briana have to return her $5.99 t-shirt?)
The subject of maintaining a healthy weight is an important one in the little people community, as we’ve seen on Little Women: LA for the past three seasons. Back issues, bone development, and metabolism for given height/weight ratios are topics of concern – and much discussion – of the show’s stars, and the little people community at large. Former LWLA hubby Erik, like many little people, has struggled with his own weight in the past. Yesterday Erik shared the above pic on Instagram, stating, “Everyone has their own story of where they’ve been & where they are headed. Here is mine…. This is 6 years in the making & I’m not done. I still have work to do to accomplish my goals. This was at my heaviest 221.5 pounds. As of today I’ve lost a total of 95 pounds.”
