In the Little Women: LA Season 5 finale tonight, Terra Jole breaks down in tears over her appearance on Dancing with the Stars as she reveals she thinks people don’t think she’s a real competitor.
Terra started on DWTS just after shooting for Little Women finished, and in the final episode which airs tonight the stress of the upcoming ABC show seems to be getting to her.
The conversation with the ladies comes at the time she was attending rehearsals with dance partner Sasha Farber just a week before the ABC series’ premiere.
And she tells BFFs Tonya Banks and Elena Grant in the dance studio: “Everybody was talking about teams being a competitor and I felt like they were dismissing me.”
She then wept as she said: “I don’t want to feel like I’m not competition.”
Terra’s fears were unfounded as she is still very much a competitor on Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars, alongside Marilu Henner, Laurie Hernandez, James Hinchcliffe, Calvin Johnson Jr. and Jana Kramer.
The next episode airs on Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
Meanwhile, the Season 5 finale of Little Women: LA tonight on Lifetime also sees Terra try to have a kiss-and-make-up chat with co-star Christy Gibel — but it doesn’t go quite to plan.
Terra admits that she’s also been in the wrong while trying to make amends after she and Briana Renee fell out with Christy earlier in the season.
But Terra’s attempts fall on deaf ears, as Christy tells her: “We can’t be friends.”
The heart-to-heart between Terra and Christy comes as the ladies get invited by Elena on a trip to go land-sailing in the desert.
But it seems there’ll not be any winds of change in their relationship any time soon.
The finale of Little Women: LA Season 5 airs tonight at 9/8c on Lifetime.
