Lifetime’s super popular Little Women: LA returns for Season 3 on July 29 with new drama, a new baby, and two new cast members. To promote the new season all the ladies posed for some SUPER FUN retro beach pin-up promotional photos that should make it very easy for you to create your own Little Women: LA calendar at home!
Above we see the entire cast sporting a woody, or at least posing with one 😉 From left to right is Briana Mason, newbie Jasmine Arteage Sorge, Christy McGinity Gibel, fellow newbie Brittney Guzman, Tonya Banks, Elena Gant, and Terra Jolé.
Check out Christy in this “Bazaar” photo and then read Lifetime’s synopsis for the all new season:
A new season of Little Women: LA brings new faces to this close-knit crew. Gossip girl Brittney arrives fresh from tour with Miley Cyrus and she’s got some dirt on just about everyone in the group. While Jasmine, an Orange County mom, surrounds herself with men of average size, including her son and she starts drama immediately with Tonya. 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.
Let’s meet those Little Women: LA rookies, shall we? (Click photos to enlarge)
Growing up as the only little person in her family, Jasmine never had many friends that looked like her. Now, as she connects with Briana and the rest of the Little Women, Jasmine is learning that making new friendships isn’t easy at any age. While Jasmine tries to fit in with the ladies, she is also working harder than ever to balance her career as a hair stylist and her role as a mother to an average size toddler.
Born into a family of little people, Brittney has always wanted to be a performer. For her first big break, she booked an international tour as a dancer with Miley Cyrus and lived her dream performing in front of millions of people. Now, at 22 years old Brittney is back in Los Angeles trying to get over a breakup with her boyfriend and working to reconnect with her family and a new set of friends. Brittney may only be four feet tall, but she’s got enough personality and independence to live up to her nickname: Freakabritt!
And the returning stars…
After a whirlwind romance and engagement that ended in heartbreak, Briana rekindles her relationship with Matt at the risk of her friendship with the group. Despite not feeling supported by the girls, her new friend Jasmine has got her back and keeps an open mind about Matt. Briana and Jasmine also connect as moms who work to balance their own dreams with those of their kids.
Christy continues to patch up her friendships with the ladies, but her struggle to get pregnant puts her marriage with Todd in jeopardy. Christy also navigates her relationships with the rest of her family who all have their own opinions about her plans to have another child. As she works to expand her family, Christy finds herself on common ground with the ladies she least expects.
Russian bombshell Elena embarks on a new career path, designing and launching her own cosmetics line, while defending herself against accusations that threaten her marriage. Preparing for her U.S. Citizenship exam is also a top priority for Elena, but studying for the exam doesn’t come easy. Elena faces these challenges head on and fights for what she wants, but will she get it?
As the little boss of the group, Tonya is resistant to accept newcomers Jasmine and Brittney despite their efforts to fit in. As her relationship with new boyfriend Jaa continues to develop, Tonya struggles to put her head before her heart in an attempt to not get hurt again. New business opportunities also present themselves for Tonya, but it’s not always as easy as it looks.
With a new baby and fiancé Joe at home, Terra returns to the group and attempts to play peacemaker after some little additions to the group cause big waves. Life as a mother has changed Terra, but will the arrival of an old friend bring out the party girl inside her? Terra is also faced with holding onto secrets that could affect some of her closest friends.

* I’m not sure why the episodes skip from 303 to 305.
In case you are wondering what happened to Traci Harrison Tsou and husband Erik, they left the show for a very great reason — to have a child! After suffering two miscarriages, Traci is currently 21 weeks along with her first child, which is reportedly average-sized, despite both parents carrying the gene for dwarfism. Traci shared a sonogram earlier this week and captioned it “L?VE at first sight!!”
Congratulations to Traci and Eric! Perhaps once the baby is born and her worries about the stresses of doing the show are abated, the family will return for their own spin-off similar to Terra’s. Stay tuned!
And speaking of Terra, her show Little Women: LA: Terra’s Little Family returns the same night! Little Women: LA premieres July 29 at 9/8c, and Terra’s Little Family airs right after at 10/9c.
