It’s been a hot minute since we last saw the ladies of Little Women: LA tearing it up on the small screen. If you’ve been missing the drama, the babies, the gnarly doings of Briana Renee’s ne’er do well husband – then, good news! Tonight, Lifetime premieres season 6, which promises to bring all of that and more.
Terra Jole recently blogged about some highlights from the season ahead, which picked up filming midway through her jaunt on Dancing With The Stars – a feat that left her with health issues, and some relationships to fix. Terra previews, “It’s incredible that we are already starting the crazy world of season six! There’s going to be drama, tears and laughter … with a side of screaming because what would Little Women be without some screaming?!” Exactly.

With Jasmine Arteaga Sorge poised to have her second child, Christy McGinity Gibel experiencing a new health challenge, and Briana and Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer] allegedly on the rocks (seriously! I heard the word “divorce” mentioned in the trailer – I SWEAR!!!), Terra says the group is on edge. Plus, Elena Gant’s supposed “jealousy” about Terra’s rising fame on DWTS also comes to a head.
Meanwhile, Tonya Banks faces health issues of her own, battling a spell of Bell’s Palsy that leaves her wearing an eye patch. Terra admits, “Seeing Tonya go through Bell’s Palsy made me want to cry.” It also looks like Tonya is suddenly ready to marry her ex-hubby, Kerwin – but he’s not so sure.
PEOPLE reports that Terra’s health issues and busy schedule keep her removed from the group for a portion of the season, especially during her last days on DWTS. Terra blogs, “We are also submersed into life with all of the women together again! Due to my crazy schedule, I was not able to join the ladies when they started going out again. Watching back, it’s bizarre hearing other people talk about your health concerns without you being present. It’s not that I don’t want to be friends with Bri, but we have said a lot of hurtful things that make it seem like we still aren’t where we were in our friendship. Throughout the season, you’ll see Bri and I have our ups and downs. Since we’re still filming, I’m hoping there will be no more downs … only ups from here! Stay tuned!”
As for Terra’s feelings about Christy? Well, it’s obvious nothing has changed. “Forgive me for saying this, but I usually fast-forward Christy. Life is too short to get involved,” snarks Terra.
Apparently, there is some drama surrounding a baby shower for Jasmine, to which Briana doesn’t invite Terra. (Ouch!) And Terra has to deal with ultimately being eliminated from DWTS – something that she still hasn’t fully recovered from. “I’m having a bit of depression watching the episode to be honest — only because it brings back emotions that I had dealing with my health, my family and my friends. I’m sad I never made it to the finals with Sasha. I remember vividly what it felt like being eliminated. Plus, sadly, I’m still going through health issues that may change my path in life.”
Terra does confess that “Hearing how concerned everyone is melts my heart and yet gives me that overwhelming feeling of anxiety all over again.” Elena is not one of her best supporters, though.
Terra breaks down her issues with Elena: “Elena, on the other hand, took me by surprise in a different way. The fact that she had the audacity to judge me as a mother for staying in the competition hurt me beyond words. I can’t believe she was going to make me the godmother of her twins, then she revoked the offer. It’s not that I was a bad friend, I was a busy friend — with little to no time for anything other than pumping for my newborn son and sleeping when I wasn’t dancing. Stay tuned to see how we work out our differences this season … IF we work them out.”
Hinting that the season ahead will be another rocky one, Terra says it does include “many life lessons.” (Lessons that these ladies actually learn from, though?) She teases, “I’m honored that I get to be a part of it and yet horrified that the world will see secrets unfold.”
