Meet the Cast of “Little Women: NY”

Little Women: LA, Lifetime’s hit series about sexy and sassy little people, is expanding to a new city — the franchise’s spinoff, Little Women: NY, introduces seven friends who face the challenges of America’s toughest city with their unique perspectives and outlooks.

Fans of the original show may recognize Lila Call from an appearance on the L.A. series. Her visit stirred up so much drama that it led to punches being thrown, and dinners erupted into screaming matches. “I was an outsider coming in,” reveals Call. “It was like being released into The Hunger Games.” And while Call says she and her N.Y. castmates experience their fair share of drama — “We’re girls, we get jealous, we get hormonal, we get angry,” she says — at the end of the day, they’re all close friends who support each other. “We love each other and it’s worth it for us to make up and move on and move past.”

A major change to the new show’s dynamic is the inclusion of a male cast member. “I definitely can’t help but be one of the girls, when I’m surrounded by so many women,” laughs Jason Perez. “But I definitely try to maintain my unique perspective on things.” Perez says that even though he’s privy to a lot of girl talk, he tries to stay as impartial as possible. “He’s like our voice of reason,” says Call. “It’s nice to have the male perspective on a female problem, but he gets his little butt in trouble, too.”

The show also introduces some of the unique challenges that living in such a large city poses to its smaller residents. “It’s hard living in New York as an average person, but as a little person, we have to deal with more,” says Perez. And he reveals that living at belt height can lead to some awkward situations. “I could be standing on the subway, holding on to a pole, and then someone puts their butt on my hand!”

In Call’s opinion, she and her castmates differ from their West Coast counterparts because “We’re tougher; we’re grittier. We’re not in this superficial ‘Tinseltown,’ the plastic fantastic. We’re just making our way, we’re catching the subways, we’re getting our hands dirty on the banisters. It’s not all beautiful here. It’s very tough, and we deal with it.”

  1. Dawn is ridiculous to ridicule the others for being in the entertainment business, (they all need to start somewhere). Take our own Warwick Davis here in UK, he has appeared in numerous films, including Star Wars and Willow, but is so popular in the UK (he is a really nice person), he now appears as the host on some quiz programmes. At 3ft 6in he may have a small frame, but boy does he have a lovely personality. Don’t knock the entertainers Dawn, it is so wrong!

  2. I’m not sure why they got so mad people were taking pictures,,,they are on a t.v. show and like any entertainers, if someone see’s someone from t.v. or movies or course they want a picture.!!! This show has so much drama.. It would be nice to see them all getting along better. Dawn tells it like it is. She might come off kinda mean, but you know where you stand with her, she just has to watch how she puts things to her friends. Just wondering if this is all real, or is it a script?

  3. Jason Perez Is wrong for what he did to Jordanna not to mention always in the lady’s Conversation…

  4. The cast members are so attractive each had their own opinions and outlook they makes the show more interesting and appealing! They have so much courage and karma! I say Right on Girls and Jason you are great !!

  5. Dawn has control issues along with her own little people syndrome and the rejection of her boyfriends parents, seek some help and stop trying to control your sister in law. Go Jordanna! How exciting for your career and Misty needs to grow up real quick or she will never be successful; she was not chosen to wear the money dress which had nothing to do with Jordanna; remember what was said by the fashion designer ” lose some weight and maybe next time” so stop whining and move on.
    And I just adore Lila and her crazy sense of humor, she has issues, but she also has a heart. Stay on track Lila and if you fall, just get back up and start over. I think you’re awesome!
    Jazmin your so sweet; you are the one with more common sense and maturity than all of them.
    Jason is a trouble maker and thinks he’s all that and more, but you’re not……And I’m still trying to figure Kristen out, why did you think it was your place to tell Misty about the text you received from Jordanna? I’m thinking you come across as a sweet loving trouble maker.

    • Kim I TOTALLY AGREE, with your assessment of the cast; I couldn’t have said it betterms myself.

  6. I hate Dawn, I tried to give her a fair chance, but there is nothing likable about Her at all!

    • Phyllis, I totally agree with you, Dawn is a cold hearted human being with severe control issues. Just because Jazmin is married to her brother does not give her the right to bully anyone; I say replace her; she’s nasty!

  7. 1=GROW UP MISTY, JORDANNA DID-NOT STEAL THE DRESS, THE DESIGNER “TOLD HER” WHAT SHE WOULD WEAR ! !
    2=AGAIN = GROW UP = JORDANNA DID NOT “ASK” TO GO TO PARIS
    THE DESIGNER WENT TO HER.
    ********************************************************************
    MISTY, IF THIS IS THE BEHAVIOR YOU HAVE WHEN THINGS DO NOT GO YOUR WAY = YOU HAVE ALOT OF GROWING UP TO DO. ASK YOURSELF THIS = IF THE SAME OFFER CAME TO YOU WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE ? ? ? ? AS AN ADULT WOMAN I WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED THE OFFER AND “SO WOULD YOU”

  8. I find program very informative as well as entertaining, keep up the very excellent work!,

    • The more I watch the show I’m beginning to like Dawn, she’s beginning to show her true self.. Keep it up girl…
