On this week’s Little Women: LA it’s time for the ladies to attack each other in a mud pit. Which seems a fitting metaphor for their storylines friendships, no? While Terra Jole continues to wave her book releases in everyone’s faces, Briana Renee finds herself pretty much forced to challenge Terra on the name of her book, thanks to Jasmine Sorge’s oddly incessant instigation. She also finds herself accused of poor hygiene again, which I still cannot believe is being put on BLAST on national TV (!!!). But guess who gives absolutely zero f–ks about Terra and her precious book releases? Christy McGinity Gibel, that’s who. She’s had enough of Terra’s messy meddling, so she refuses flat out to sign a release – now or ever. Boom.

Back at the nail salon, Elena Gant and Jasmine are still bickering about why Jasmine is trying to fight Briana’s battles. Yeah, Jasmine, why are you suddenly Briana’s dragon? The irony of Briana wanting to claim the “fierce” title, but relying on others to do the claiming for her is not lost on us. Also not lost on us is the fact that Elena and Jasmine can barely get through this totally manufactured fight without giggling and smirking the entire time. They make up in the end, agreeing to disagree. Because the network requires it Jasmine is the children’s godmother, after all.

Little Women: LA Recap: Fierce Fight

Guess who now owns the word “fierce?” (Well, besides the year 2005.) Terra Jole owns it, dammit! And she makes Briana Renee’s head spin when she reveals on this week’s Little Women: LA that she’s using it in her upcoming book title. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. We are now witness to an argument about who is and is not fierce. Wait – can we abstain from the vote? Or redefine “fierce” as: Without boundaries, self awareness, or the maturity of a fifth grader? Because then, I will gladly get on board.

But last week’s mess still looms large over the group, as Christy McGinity Gibel gets wind of Terra showing her video all around town. As a result, Christy firmly draws a line in the sand, stating that she will not now, nor EVER, sign that book release Terra was waving in front of her face. So Terra will just have to rely on everyone else’s dirt to fill the pages of her “tell-all.” Hmm. It would seem Briana and Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer] could provide sufficient content for a trilogy, so my guess is that she’ll be all set, right?

Little Women: LA Recap: Big Trouble, Little Video

Remember a certain video Kim Kardashian leaked back in the day to launch her dubious career? Well apparently, Christy McGinity Gibel made one of those videos too! Except with way less skin, no sex, and a decidedly lower market value. So when Terra Jole decides to bizarrely out this old footage of Christy on this week’s Little Women: LA, Christy is offended – and rightly so, especially when Terra vaguely presents it as some sort of threat if Christy doesn’t sign her book release. Meanwhile, Tonya Banks is not having the best luck, as her dog is stolen, which, on top of the massive meltdown Jasmine Sorge recently had on her, does not make for a great week in Little Boss’s world.

With Penny turning two, Terra and Joe Gnoffo are planning a big party. At home, they prep decorations as Tonya pops in to tell them her dog, Angel, is gone. She cries foul! Someone’s stolen her, says Tonya. But enough on that, as there’s party drama to discuss – drama between Tonya and Jasmine, that is. Tonya still doesn’t know what to do to make things right after Jasmine screamed in her face at her post-launch party. She apologized, so shouldn’t that be enough? As for Briana Renee’s beef with Tonya not including her in the fashion show, nobody cares.

Little Women: LA Recap: Fractured Friendships

This week we find out a few critical pieces of news on Little Women: LA. Like the results of Terra Jole’s biopsy (she’s fine), and that Tonya Banks actually has an activewear line! But tempers flare when Tonya leaves Jasmine Sorge and Briana Renee off of the guest list of her fashion show. Because Briana is a MODEL in her own mind high demand, don’t ya know?!? Elena Gant and Terra also face off after Terra was last seen storming out of Elena’s baptism party. In short: Everyone screams at everyone. Welcome to another season of Little Women Who Loathe One Another!

We begin on the pier, where last week we saw Terra telling Tonya and Jasmine about her abnormal mammogram. Tonya tears up, then flies into anger about Terra not telling her earlier. Jasmine says nothing. Although Terra wanted to share the news with Elena as well, things between them are fractured since the godparent debacle. Jasmine’s advice: Talk to Elena. Soon.

Little Women: LA star Terra Jole

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!”

Little Women: LA Recap: Baptism Blowout

Last night, Little Women: LA delved into some painful topics, namely Terra Jole getting frightening news that she may have breast cancer. Elena Gant also hosts a party after the baptism of her twin boys, at which Jasmine Sorge announces that she and her husband Chris, not Terra and Joe Gnoffo, were chosen as godparents to the little wee ones. Terra does NOT take the news well, to put it mildly. Meanwhile, Christy McGinity Gibel is busy navigating life with her overbearing mom and daughter as she prepares for Todd’s gastric sleeve surgery.

Tonya Banks – who’s still imagining that her activewear line is ready to launch – is out shopping for baptism clothes with Elena. When Elena reveals who she’s chosen as godparents, Tonya seems shocked. And caught in a bind, as she already spilled the beans to Terra that Elena was thinking of choosing her. Ruh-roh. Elena is adamant that Terra’s priorities aren’t straight enough to be a suitable godparent though, and that’s that. So – this should all go over swimmingly at Elena’s upcoming baptism party!

Terra Jole crushed by Elena Gant

This week’s Little Women: LA cemented a new alliance between Elena Gant and Jasmine Sorge, who started out as bitter enemies on the franchise, yet ultimately forged a bond as new mommies to their boys. When Elena chose Jasmine and her husband, Chris, as godparents, though, Terra Jole admits she was deeply hurt. After all, Elena had initially asked Terra and Joe Gnoffo to fill the role.

Terra confesses, “I’m truly crushed that my relationship with Elena has faded. In the episode, Elena mentions that after Dancing with the Stars, we never talked like we used to, but the phone lines work both ways. We are both to blame for our lack of communication, but conveniently Elena is upset that I’m not calling as much. This makes it easy for her to appoint someone else as a godparent.”

Little Women: LA Recap: Shady Business

OK, I just accidentally watched a Chuck Norris infomercial in its entirety (don’t ask!) and am prepped and ready to go on this here recap. On last night’s Little Women: LA, some alliances shifted while other friendships continued to circle the drain. Excited about her prospects as an author, Terra Jole meets with her publisher to work out the details. Guess who still has a problem with Terra or literally anyone pursuing another gig? Elena Gant! Our Official Season 6 Hater. (What happened to this chick? Seriously.)

Terra also unexpectedly finds herself relating to Briana Renee, as Briana navigates the frightening decision of whether to have baby Maverick undergo spinal surgery. Meanwhile, Christy McGinity Gibel finally battles back from the wreckage of last year (and most of this season, which has placed her on a very cold back burner) by accusing Briana of underhanded moves with her PR firm. Tonya Banks continues to browbeat Kerwin into taking their relationship to the next level – like unpacking his duffel bag, for example.
