Briana Rene’e has been at the center of her share of drama on this season’s Little Women: LA. I got a chance to sit down with Briana to hear her side of the story on a year filled with changes: including a new marriage, music career aspirations, and shifting alliances with old friends. Here’s what she had to say about that, and much more!
Did you ever think you’d wind up on a reality TV show? “You know, I didn’t. When you watch stuff you always wonder what it would be like, but until I was offered the opportunity, I never considered it seriously.”
“To say the least, it’s definitely been a wild ride! The fact that I am myself completely – what you see on screen is who I am off screen – I make myself basically wide open to the public and vulnerable to positive and negative reactions. It really is wild. It’s an experience that you can only really understand if you’re in it. It’s been a wonderful opportunity and an amazing platform for educating the public though.”
What is your relationship status with each of your cast mates right now? “At this point, we’re giving each other space, but are seeing each other when the opportunity arises. At the end of the day, you realize you were friends, you are friends, so you take it day by day. I mean, it was rough. But you don’t just end a friendship because you have one big argument.”
Our favorite reality TV stars, such as Kathryn Dennis, Chelsea Houska, and Kyle Richards, love to show off their adorable kids and family pics on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest photos from the past few weeks.
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.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow, Caroline Stanbury, and Leah Remini, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It’s so tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past week.
We did it! We made it to the bitter end of a season which can best be described in one word: Mattgate. To tie a bow on the whole package, we must tirelessly slog through Part Two of this season’s Little Women: LA reunion, however. And how could we do that without focusing on the man, the myth, the legend – Briana Manson’s newest husband, Matt himself?
In Part One of the reunion, we ended with the dramatic entrance of Makayla, the woman who Matt sent photos of his nether-regions to while he was in a relationship with Briana. Whether Matt and Briana were on a break when the photos were sent, or whether the photos actually caused the break has yet to be clarified. (And if Briana has it her way, it will likely never be clarified, as she’s talked out of both sides of her mouth on this issue for some time now.)

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?)
