After Terra Jole found out that former bestie Elena Gant wasn’t choosing Terra to be the godmother of her twin boys, all hell broke loose on Little Women: LA. Now Terra explains just why Elena’s move hurt her feelings so much and how Tonya Banks‘ unkind words about Terra’s parenting priorities also drove the knife in deeper. Terra also touches on the moment when she received troubling news about potentially having breast cancer (though we know now she is cancer free).
Terra breaks down the scene at Elena’s baptism, where she found out that Jasmine Sorge would be godmother to Elena’s boys. “Let me set the record straight — I am happy for Jasmine. I’m just hurt that Elena felt she couldn’t tell me. We previously cried about it at the ice-skating rink, and I told her how special that was to me. It’s more about a respect thing. She expresses how our friendship isn’t like it used to be, but this is an example of why!”

Terra thinks it speaks volumes, though, that Elena failed to tell her she wouldn’t be a godparent before the public scene unfolded. She explains in her People blog, “When you’re unable to share news like this with people you love, then I can’t help but think that we don’t have a friendship anymore.”
“Jasmine and Chris will make beautiful godparents to the twins. Congrats to them from the bottom of my heart,” adds Terra, who also apologized later to Jasmine for blowing up at the party and walking out. (Though she hasn’t apologized to Elena yet!)
Even more troubling is how Tonya, Terra’s true BFF, disparaged Terra’s parenting skills when talking with Elena about her choice in godparents. Terra admits Tonya’s “extremely hurtful” words shocked her. “Tonya stated, ‘If Terra can do all of these other projects and neglect her kids, it would be nothing for her to neglect Elena’s kids.’ Excuse me, Tonya? Neglect my kids? The last thing I would ever do is neglect my children. They are, hands down, the most important priority in my life.”
“If Tonya were in front of me as we speak, she would be getting an earful from me and it wouldn’t be nice,” quips Terra, who I assume is putting Little Boss on notice! Eeek.
Truth be told, I wasn’t very surprised at Elena’s messy behavior, considering she’s embracing the “villain” role this season with an oddly amped up gusto. But Tonya throwing Terra under the bus was shocking, especially how she insinuated that Terra is not a good mother (in so many words). Tonya knows what it’s like to support herself and a child as a working mother who is just trying to keep house and home together in a fairly tough industry. So – why the sudden nastiness? Especially directed at her bestie? Not a bright move.
As for the troubling results that Terra received from her mammogram and ultrasound this past episode, she confesses that it was a seriously scary moment for her – but that moment is thankfully over. Terra reflects, “that time in my life was frightening. Being probed and tested every which way isn’t ideal for anyone. I am proud to say that I’m cancer-free, but still testing and checking the area to be safe. Prayers and well wishes to everyone who is going through cancer and dealing with this same grueling process.”
After watching the show back, Terra claims she was “bothered and sad.” Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
