Plot Synopsis

LITTLE WOMEN: LA is a one-hour reality series that follows a group of little people, as they deal with relationships, parenting, careers and especially the ups and downs of friendships. They laugh, cry, compete and fight with one another, but through it all they share a special unbreakable bond. The women are: Tonya Banks, a single mother born and raised in Carson, CA, who has been an actress, stuntwoman and celebrity impersonator for more than 30 years and whose 22-year-old daughter, Angelique, is of average height; Elena Gant, born and raised in Russia, who moved to California a few years ago, is a full time actress and celebrity impersonator, and is currently married to Preston Gant, a 6'2" African-American; Traci Harrison, a Christian from Southern California, who has worked as an actor and regular stand-in on movies and TV shows for the past 13 years and is currently engaged to Erik Tsou, also a little person; Terra Jole, an animal activist originally from born in San Antonio, TX, who is an entertainer and a well-known celebrity impersonator and who has been dating her boyfriend, Joe Gnoffo, for the past four years; Briana Manson, a recent divorcee originally from Corona Del Mar, CA, who is a devoted full-time, stay-at-home mom with a 4.5-year-old daughter; and Christy McGinity, originally from Burbank, CA, who works from home as a financial advisor after acting for several years and who is in a relationship with Todd Gibel. On Tuesday, July 22 at 10pm ET/PT, Lifetime aired the Season 1 finale of LITTLE WOMEN LA, featuring Christy and Todd's wedding, one of the first televised little people nuptials. As Christy finalizes her last minute wedding details -- from the dress and flower arrangements to the venue -- she quickly realizes her mother is a momzilla. With wedding bells in the air, Terra and Joe feel pressure to discuss if they are really meant to be together. Finally, the ladies speculate why Elena isn't drinking...could there be a baby on the way? On Tuesday, July 15, 2014 -- one week before the Season 1 finale -- Lifetime announced that LITTLE WOMEN: LA had been renewed for a second season.

On New Year's Day 2015 (Thursday, January 1) at 9pm ET/PT, Lifetime premiered the second season of LITTLE WOMEN: LA. When a shocking baby announcement is made and there's a new little lady in town, the group's friendships are pushed to the limit. In each hour-long episode, viewers get a unique glimpse into the lives of these girlfriends as they wade through the ups and downs of life, supporting one another every step of the way as they prove, once again, that height is just a number. In the season opener, "Baby on Board," the Little Women embark on a booze cruise, but it's not all smooth sailing. Traci accuses Briana of lying about why she didn't attend Traci's wedding, but are Briana's mysterious medical reasons true? Terra gets an offer that could change her career, but it would require a huge sacrifice she might not be willing to make. And the baby race is on between Elena, Christy and newly married Traci. But after a pregnancy test comes up positive, the question is, who's pregnant?!? Just before the Season 2 premiere, Lifetime aired a one-hour "Season 2 Kickoff Special" from 8-9pm ET/PT.

LITTLE WOMEN: LA returned for its third season on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime, immediately following a nine-hour marathon (Noon-9pm) of encore episodes. Season 3 brings new faces to this close-knit crew. Gossip girl Brittney arrives with dirt on everyone while Jasmine, an Orange County mom, surrounds herself with men of average size, including her son. As Terra and Joe go through the trials and tribulations of being first-time parents, Christy struggles to have a child while Tonya tries to find love with the right man. But, through thick and thin, nothing can keep these little ladies apart.

Season 4 of LITTLE WOMEN: LA premiered on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime, immediately following an all-day (7am-9pm) encore presentation of the third season. After ending last season with a touching vow renewal, Preston and Elena find themselves back in LA and they are now at odds over Elena's preoccupation with launching her fashion line and DIY makeup tutorials. Christy and Todd are finally pregnant, but fearing the backlash from the little people community, they have yet to reveal that they have pre-selected an average size baby through IVF. Meanwhile, Tonya and Jasmine continue their on-again, off-again friendship and Tonya's relationship with Ja becomes stronger than ever. In the season opener, "MotoCrossed," Jasmine hosts a 'Mommy Cocktail Party' so the women can trade tips for raising children, and leaves Elena off the guest list; cracks begin to appear in Briana's relationship with Matt; Tonya gets the girls together for a dangerous motocross race.

The fifth season of LITTLE WOMEN: LA premiered on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime. With new babies on the horizon for many of the ladies, all is well in love and friendship until the new season forces everyone to come face-to-face with the hard truth about their relationships. The curtain is pulled back, exposing all the lies, deceit and backstabbing to reveal more about themselves than they ever expected.

Season 6 of LITTLE WOMEN: LA premiered on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime. With the ladies focusing on their growing families and forging new career paths, making time for their friendship has become increasingly difficult. When new opportunities arise for some, jealousy and old drama reemerge, affecting both friendships and marriages. Can the women come together and extinguish the fire before they all get burned...again? In the season opener, "Ballroom Blitz," the girls feel that Terra has changed since she began competing on DANCING WITH THE STARS, and fears she is sacrificing her family, friendships, and her little body for the wrong reasons. Terra is blindsided when Elena demands she quit the competition. Meanwhile, Tonya receives a concerning diagnosis.

The seventh season of LITTLE WOMEN: LA premiered on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Over the past six seasons, these ladies have seen success and failure with their relationships, families and careers. This new season is all about female empowerment for Terra, Tonya, Christy, Elena and Jasmine. From fierce competitions and emotionally challenging events, life is too short to waste time or energy where it's not needed. The ladies are looking to take on new adventures, pushing boundaries, tackling prejudices against dwarfism and conquering their own fears. In the season opener, "Lucky 7," trust issues are still looming, and Tonya finds herself at a crossroads in her relationship with Kerwin. Christy throws Autumn a graduation party, but when Autumn wants Terra there, Christy struggles to let go of past issues and invite her. Meanwhile Terra accuses Elena of taking advantage of her, causing the fragile progress they've made in repairing their friendship, to come crashing down.

On Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, Lifetime premiered the eighth season of LITTLE WOMEN: LA. Season 8 is all about the Little Women showing that it's never too late for big life changes, so they vow to leap out of their comfort zone and push themselves to new heights. For Tonya that means finally defining her relationship with Jaa, while also getting back to her roots in acting. For a 35 lb lighter Christy, it's a new body and a new outlook on a dream she's had for years. Meanwhile, Elena it's pushing her entrepreneurial skills to the next level with a make-up line and a children's book while Jasmine is recommitting to Chris in an elaborate vow renewal. It's all about giving back to the community for Terra, as she works with younger Little People and eventually launches her own Little People retreat. In the season opener, "Uphill Battle," after taking a few months away to focus on her marriage and weight-loss, Christy goes hiking with the girls, and reveals her physical transformation. Meanwhile, when Jasmine plans a spa day centered around Terra, Tonya realizes their friendship is even more damaged than she thought it was. And after months of being in and out of the hospital with their daughter Penelope, Terra and Joe brace themselves for whether or not Penny will need yet another brain surgery.
