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.
Happy St Patrick’s Day! To kick off this all new gallery of reality star sightings is Tonya Banks celebrating the premiere of her “Lil Boss Body” clothing line with a few of her Little Women: LA co-stars.
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.”
I thought the last season of Little Women: LA was a rough one for Christy McGinity Gibel, but it turns out even more happened when the cameras weren’t rolling. The viewers have already seen many cast members struggling with health problems associated with being little people, but Christy recently revealed that she had a stroke during a neck surgery back in November 2016.
Just when we thought things were tough enough for Christy with her father, her daughter’s health issues, and her drama with her LWLA co-stars, she’s actually still suffering from the mini-stroke she had months ago.
Almost everyone was pregnant during the last season of Little Women: LA, so of course I expected some new reality show babies to be born soon. But for the most part these ladies stay out of the spotlight in between seasons, so it’s not shocking that Jasmine Arteaga Sorge gave birth to her second child back in December 1 and only just announced it.
I like that though, they get the perks of being reality TV cast members and the luxury of keeping some things private like “normal” people who aren’t on television. Plus, from what I’ve seen on the show, pregnancy can take a toll on a little person and her child, so it makes perfect sense to step away from the limelight when a newborn comes into the picture. But now Jasmine is opening up about the new addition to her family.
It’s official! Little Women: LA, the flagship show that started the entire Little Women franchise on Lifetime, has begun filming season six. So, take a few cleansing breaths while you can – because more cat fighting, drug accusations, pregnancy news, and of course, vomit inducingMatt Ericson [Grundhoffer] insanity is just around the corner.
LWLA producer and star of the show, Terra Jole, posted the above pic on Instagram, announcing that she was “Back at it with these guys!” referring to the film crew beside her. No word on season six’s premiere date yet, but with LWLA’s history of stacking seasons back to back in dizzying succession, one can assume it’s not too far away.
Finally! Rhonnie and Karla weigh in on part two of the Little Women: LA reunion! Wait – who are Rhonnie and Karla, you ask? Good question! They are, in fact, total rando’s that Christy McGinity Gibel feels the need to trot out once more, apparently under the guise of having “backup.” They were first seen acting like thirsty wannabees at Casino Night; now they’re gracing the couches for a final say. Or something. You know how Taylor Swift has her Squad? Yeah, well, this is the like that. Except – totally not like that. Ah, Christy. You make it hard for us to go to bat for you, chica!
The rest of the men join the ladies in part two as well, adding their opinions to the stinkpile of rehashed topics such as: Tonya Banks’ comments on average sized children, new babies (yay!), and more. Hang on, gang…I pinky promise that we are almost DONE with season 5! (I am sending Lifetime an invoice for a 7-day spa retreat as reparation for living through this mess!!!)
