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.”
Yay, babies! After a bit of a rough road to motherhood, Little Women LA‘s former castmate Traci Harrison Tsou seems to be in full celebration mode at the baby shower her bestie and costar of LWLA, Terra Jole, threw for her this past weekend. Terra posted the above pic on Instagram yesterday, joking, “Someone has a bow hat going on large from her baby shower!”
In anticipation of the party, Traci tweeted Sunday, “#BabyShower Day!! Cant wait to celebrate #BabyTsou with my closest friends. Thank you @TerraJole for hosting. You’re the best! Love u.” An outpouring of support from fans followed Traci’s post.
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 our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Well, it’s already time for season three of Little Women: LA, and I’m still left scratching my head over the two-part reunion from last season, which pitted mean girl Terra Jole against Christy McGinty in what looked like a friendship-ending scenario. But, both Terra and Christy are back, along with veteran LWLA castmates Tonya Banks, Briana Manson, and Elena Gant. Joining the cast as newbies are Miley Cyrus dancer Brittney Guzman, aka “Freakabritt,” and Orange County mom, Jasmine Arteaga Sorge. Traci Harrison is not back as an official cast member, but may appear in some scenes with bestie Terra or the group as a whole as the season rolls forward. Reports surface back in June that Traci and hubby Erik are expecting their first child together (yay!), so she stepped back from the show. Traci, about five months pregnant now with an average sized baby, calls her pregnancy “a miracle.”
Now, on to season three! We catch up with new mom Terra at the gym where she’s dancing with Brittney, who Terra’s been friends with via their connection as Miley Cyrus dancers. Terra’s daughter, Penny, is two months old and doing great. Terra hopes to plan a wedding soon, but before then, she’s working on getting back into her pre-mommy body. Briana is hosting a wine event soon, so Terra wants to integrate Brittney into the group – all of whom will be at the event. Brittney knows Tonya, Elena, and Christy in varying degrees already. Briana is new to her, but she’s willing to give the event a go.

As viewers have seen, Traci and Eric have been trying to have a baby since they tied the knot and suffered two miscarriages along the way. They shared those losses with the show’s fans in painful detail on the series, but they are now choosing to keep this pregnancy as intrusion-free as they can.
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.
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.
