Don’t expect the little women we know so well from past seasons to fade into the background, though: they’re all stepping out of their comfort zones and re-inventing themselves in their own ways.
Christy Gibel looks like a new woman: She’s lost 35 lbs., and with her newfound confidence she’s fully embracing her body and a dream she’s harbored for years.
Elena Gant and Tonya Banks are both taking their careers in new directions: Elena’s launching a make-up line and writing a children’s book, while Tonya’s going back to her acting roots.
Tonya’s also getting out of her relationship comfort zone: She finally defines her relationship with Jaa, while Jasmine recommits to Chris in an elaborate vow renewal.
As for Terra Jolé, she’s showing it’s never too late to make a difference in the world: she’s giving back to the LP community that helped her by working with younger LPs in L.A. and launching her own retreat.
But her family must navigate uncharted territory in the wake of first-born daughter Penny’s multiple brain surgeries.
