‘Little Women: LA’ is an American reality television series that airs on the A&E-owned Lifetime channel. As the name itself suggests, the show follows the lives of several “little women” or those affected by dwarfism, as they try and live life to the fullest.
A not-so-recent show, Season 1 of ‘Little Women: LA’ premiered on May 27, 2014, and since then, the show has seen an impressive eight seasons air. As it stands, fans of the show are wondering whether it will return again for a drama-filled ninth season. Here’s everything we know about it thus far.
Little Women LA Cast: Who is in it?
Being a reality show, ‘Little Women: LA’ has a limited number of cast members, who all play themselves. The show initially started off by showcasing the lives of six “little women” – Terra Jolé, Tonya Banks, Elena Gant, Christy McGinity Gibel, Briana Manson,and Traci Harrison Tsou. However, Traci exited the show after the second season, and Briana exited after the sixth season. In the third season, Jasmine Arteaga Sorge joined the main cast, and she has been part of the main cast ever since. Brittney Guzman, too, joined the show as a main cast member in the third season, but she exited after one season, and returned later as a guest. Thus, as it stands (as of Season 8), the show revolves around Terra Jolé, Tonya Banks, Elena Gant, Christy McGinity Gibel, and Jasmine Arteaga Sorge.
Additionally, several others have appeared in the show every now and then as guest members or recurring cast members. If the show does get renewed for a ninth season, we expect all the current main cast members to make a comeback and reprise their roles.
Little Women LA Plot: What is it about?
The premise of the show is a very simple one and follows a group of little women, with small bodies but big hearts, going about their lives. Set in the city of Los Angeles, California, the show follows how these women deal with friendship, careers, enjoyment, and the men in their lives. Needless to say, much of these “dealings” involve a lot of drama, which keeps viewers hooked to developments in the lives of the stars.
Yet, while the drama in the lives of these women is a central aspect of the show, ‘Little Women: LA’ also tries to do its part to remove the stigma around dwarfism. Although 1 in 15,000 to 1 in 40,000 people have one of the 300 odd conditions associated with dwarfism, society has historically looked down upon dwarfs and ridiculed them, giving rise to much bias and stigma over the years. ‘Little Women: LA’ and its sister shows – ‘Little Women: Terra’s Little Family’, ‘Little Women: NY’, ‘Little Women: Atlanta’, and ‘Little Women: Dallas’ – all work to try and remove this stigma and usher in a more widespread acceptance of dwarfs in mainstream society.
