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.
Entertainment Tonight recently visited Terra Jole andJoe Gnoffo at home to check in on the little couple after the high-risk delivery of their baby girl, Penelope, on March 16. Terra and Joe have been documenting Terra’s pregnancy and her baby’s birth on Lifetime’sLittle Women: Terra’s Little Family. Terra’s pregnancy was considered high risk due to the forms of dwarfism she and Joe have and the series has provided a glimpse into the fears and joys the couple has shared along the way. Facing health concerns like the risk of having a double-dominant child (a condition in which double-dominant dwarfism genes prove fatal for a newborn), the couple were overjoyed to welcome a healthy 6-pound, 2-ounce little girl this spring!
Penelope may face health concerns down the road; still, Terra and Joe hope for the best: “She doesn’t have any part of my dwarfism,” Joe told ET. “It’s all [Terra’s]. I’ve had a bunch of leg surgeries and scoliosis and stuff. We’re hoping that, because she’s just Terra’s type that she’ll be able to avoid that.” Terra added, “We don’t know in the future if she’s going to need leg surgery or back surgery. All of these things are very common with achondroplasia [a form of short-limbed dwarfism], but all we can do is give her the best life that she can have.” Terra is four foot, two inches tall and 90 pounds, which Penelope could grow to be as well.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kyle Richards, Caroline Stanbury, Drita D’Avanzo, and Yandy Smith, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our picks for the cutest family photos from the past few weeks.
Above: Tia Mowry shared this picture of herself, Cree, Tamera Mowry, and Aden, adding, “The return of the selfie… Fam Bam.”
It’s part two of the Little Women: L.A.reunion show and this time, the men are joining the little ladies to sling some mud. But of course they are!
Back to host part 2 of the reunion, and to go hard at Christy McGinty, is Tanika Ray. We rejoin the group with Lila Call (of Little Women: N.Y.) defending her past relationship with the great and powerful Joe. Terra Jole is still bothered by Lila’s texts & calls to Joewhile Terra and Joe have been in a relationship.Tonya Banksjumps in to tell Lila, “I really wanted to whoop your ass” in Catalina but adds that she “didn’t want to catch a case” so she refrained. Lila asks if Tonya paid a writer for that line and Tonya’s grouchy face hits level 10. “I can be classy and I can be ratchet!” yells Tonya. Lila ignores her at first, then finally snaps, “Just shut up!” to Tonya, which provokes Tonya to hop off the couch and go at her (well, kinda…before a very pregnant Terra fake-holds her back). Instead of assaulting her, Tonya finally ends it all with “You need to take your dildo and go f*ck yourself back to New York!” OMG. These women, especially Tonya, need a bar of soap shoved in their ratchet mouths STAT. Lila’s had enough, so she decides to get up and leave, saying, “I’m better than this.” Terra and Tonya yell “BYE! BYE!” like middle school mean girls while Christy tries to follow Lila out to make sure she doesn’t drink. But Christy stays instead and attempts to address Tonya’s ridiculous behavior…to no avail. Someone needs to pull out a dog bone and tell Tonya to go fetch.
Well, it’s time for the new franchise of Lifetime’s Little Women series to make its debut! Little Women: New York premiered last night just after part one of the Little Women: L.A. reunion ended. And crossover “stars” from both cities appeared everywhere. Lila Call, a LWNY cast member, joined the LWLA ladies at their reunion to rehash her extreme antics with the ladies in LA last season. Then Elena Gant showed up on the LWNY premiere to sh*t stir like her name was Christy McGinty. Jeez, Elena! I thought she “had a dream!” that little people everywhere would one day live in peace? This dream is not happening in New York – or LA – with these groups of women.
We begin in NY with an introduction to the 6 little women and 1 little man who make up the cast. Lila Call (the ringleader), Misty Irwin (the party girl), Dawn Lang(paralegal career girl), Jason Perez (poly-sci student and – er – a guy!), Jazmin Lang (sister in law to Dawn & performer), Jordanna James (Broadway & burlesque performer), and Kristin Zettlemoyer (performer). Gotta say, I’m loving the opening video montage and soundtrack! Waaaaaaay better than LWLA!
Who knew there would be a multi-part Little Women: LA reunion? Not this girl! Well, it’s happening. And part one was full of blaming and finger pointing and drama-rehashing…and that was just from the Terra Jole.
Hosting the first hour of the LWLA reunion is Tanika Ray. Since seating arrangements at reunion shows typically speak volumes, it’s noteworthy to point out that Tonya Banks and Terra Jole are seated by themselves on one side of the room while Christy McGinty, Briana Manson, Elena Gant, and Traci Harrison are arranged on the other couch. Terra is very pregnant (and filming new show Terra’s Little Family) and scenes flashback to her pregnancy journey. Terra explains that she’s hopeful her baby is healthy – and we do now know baby Penelope is just fine! Yay! Terra says she’s been feeling some extreme pain and she had a blackout recently, but the baby is growing normally and they’re okay. Christy says she’s excited for Terra, but Terra flat out says that she doesn’t think Christy is genuine in her well-wishing. Tonya is still mad that Terra told Elena about her pregnancy before her, but rest of the group calls out Christy for being an instigator (Ding! Ding! Ding!) for telling Traci (and everyone else) that Terra told Elena first. Terra accuses Christy of being fake, which she refuses to accept.
