After last week’s sweet baby shower and the real-time news of the birth of Terra and Joe’s baby, the claws are out in the first hour of the Little Women: LA Reunion, Part 1.
The special was obviously recorded before the birth of Terra’s baby, and she was big and bumpin! Host Tanika Ray is here to ask the awkward questions that we’re all dying to know.
Terra’s still aglow in maternal bliss, and first we take a look back at her “pregnancy journey.” But we’ll get to see this footage about 100 more times when Little Women: Terra’s Little Family premieres on April 8th. Terra and Joe reiterated that they didn’t know if their baby has inherited double dominance. If she does, it would most likely be fatal to the baby. Regardless, she hand Joe love their baby for whomever she is.
Tonya is still meg-bitchy that Terra told Elena of her pregnancy before she told Tonya or Joe. And people are still may that Christy told Traci that Elena knew first. Because seriously, who cares who knew first, second or last!
And, all of the women kept calling Christy “fake” and she looks like she wants to cut these bitches.
Then we’re treated to the intimate details of Traci and Christy’s efforts to get pregnant including Traci’s heartbreaking miscarriage. Brave Traci revealed that she’d had another miscarriage on Christmas Day. It’s so sad to watch these two women compete to complete their families.
And then we got to rehash every second of the numerous fights that we witnessed this season. I’m a little tired of Terra using the phase, “My unborn child.” If you want to pretend you’re made of glass, try to act with a little class. Do you want your daughter’ earlier internet searches to result in her finding your prodigious use of profanity? If you’re gonna claim to be a saint, at least act beatific.
It’s a shame that every fight keeps being Terra pointing blame at Christy. She seems to be the only one who is trying to diffuse the situation.
I had the good fortune to interview Lila Call for Little Women: NY and I found her fun and funny. The things that the L.A. cast is saying about her are terrible. Even Christy, who is her friend, kind of backed away from supporting her during the reunion. Perhaps some of Lila’s past transgressions and questionable texts were due to her alcoholism. She’s newly into recovery, so perhaps people need to give her time to follow the program and get to the point of apologizing for her past transgressions.
Lila revealed that there’s more to their relationship with Joe than Terra says; she visited Joe on a movie set and their relationship extended beyond their one month status as “F@#$ buddies.” Terra admits that neither she nor Joe have been perfect in their lives, but they love one another and are committed to their family. (But, remember last season when Joe hit on Elena? Shady.) And just before the end of the hour, Lila says, “He’s not the guy you think he is… Joe likes women —do you think that’s a noble man to be a father?” Oh Snap! Next week, give those ladies some gloves and let’s have some foxy boxing to solve these problems! (Just kidding, Terra’s pregnant. Wait a few weeks, and then let them solve their differences a little more creatively — like a knitting contest!)
Basically the reunion was a rehashing of the season’s lowest moments and we realized that even after the cameras stopped rolling, the bad feelings didn’t end.
Next week on Part 2 of the Little Women: LA Reunion: cheatings, beatings, and name calling… plus, more Lila!
