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.

Christy opened up about her mini-stroke in an interview with Radar.
Christy had the operation on November 29, 2016. “I am not the same, and may never be,” said Christy, months later. “Every day is an uphill battle to do things in my life that I took for granted, like speaking.”
Nowadays, Christy has multiple therapists to help with her recovery, but she is putting her focus on her home life. Christy explained, “How can I take care of my family? I am still the mama bear of the house, and expected to run it, sick or not.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Christy has received support from her fellow cast members – and to be honest, that isn’t surprising given how things ended last season. So it should be interesting to see how much of this ends up on the new season and how the ladies treat Christy in front of the cameras.
As a very dedicated viewer, I feel like Elena Gant and Jasmine Sorge will be there for her in some capacity. They’ve always been the sweethearts of the show, but who knows? Christy has a way upsetting everyone in the cast, but if anyone is going to bend for someone during a time of need, it would be those two.
Christy even said, “I work with these girls. Fighting or not, I am concerned with their well-being. It’s called being human.” Yikes. It sounds like the viewers are in store for some drama – and not the entertaining, trivial kind.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK CHRISTY’S CO-STARS SHOULD BE THERE FOR HER EVEN IF THEY AREN’T ON GOOD TERMS?
