If you’re a fan of Dancing With the Stars, you know Little Woman: LA star, Terra Jole, is still hanging in there after week seven. But is the little woman having a big breakdown?

Sources are saying the closer Terra gets to the finale, the more she is buckling under the pressure.

“Terra is constantly complaining that she feels like her disability makes her a burden when in, in fact, it doesn’t at all,” the insider told Radar.

Turning on the waterworks in nothing new for Terra, but insiders say that even when the cameras aren’t rolling, Terra is still crying.

“She has been crying non-stop lately and it seems like she just wants to be cut,” revealed the source.

Terra gave birth to her second child, a boy named (after much deliberation) Grayson on August 1. Rehearsals began three weeks later and Terra announced a few weeks ago she’s been dancing with “several hernias.”

Watch Terra Jole and her partner Sasha Farber dance a Jive to “Stuff Like That There” by Kelly Clarkson. The pair scored a 25 out of 40 for the routine. From the Season 23 Premiere of Dancing with the Stars.

Is Terra doing too much too soon? Do you think she’ll make it to the finals? Tell us what you think?

    I don’t follow this woman’s career and really know nothing about her, but from the first time I saw her on DWTS, there seems to be something ‘off’ about her.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      She shouldn’t have joined this season. She just gave birth via C-section 3 weeks before the show started. Shouldn’t she be home healing and bonding with her new son? She also has another baby (a 2 year old) who is totally dependent on her because she can’t walk or talk, etc. On top of all that, she was in the midst of moving out of her home and into a new one and her husband took off to another state for work. Apparently she likes to play the martyr. I think she should have stayed home and focused on her family. She could have done DWTS next season, but she was probably afraid someone else would beat her to it and she wouldn’t be the “first little person” anymore.
      I don’t watch DWTS, but I watch LWLA and she isn’t exactly the nicest person on that show. I hear she puts on a good act on DWTS.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Well this viewer is seeing through her act. So basically, she’s a garden variety fame ho’ and needs the cash, even though she has personal family issues (and probably suffering from post partum).

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Exactly! I’m thinking that’s why she is doing so much crying on DWTS. Her hormones are probably all out of whack.
          I don’t watch DWTS anymore, but I hear they are trying to make her out to be this nice girl and on her show, she is a nasty bitch!
          Kind of like how they didn’t show the whole truth about Kim Zolciak or Nene Leakes. Lol. ABC wouldn’t show how they really act on HW’s. No one would watch them otherwise.

          • SMDRN66

            This is ABC, who is owned by Disney. It wouldn’t be in their best interest to show a dwarf in a negative light. They have 7 of those things running around the Magic Kingdom! Actually, those dwarfs were mean. My mom wanted to take a picture of me, my brother, and my uncle (her youngest brother was 3.5 yrs older than me) and they just walked away from us. So my mom kicked one in the ankle. Now I know were I get it from.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Haha…that’s funny! I never thought about it that way. Lol
            I don’t remember ever seeing the dwarves at Disney, but then again, I don’t think I’ve been there for over 25 years! Isn’t one supposed to be “Happy”? Lol

          • chacha1

            I never saw them either and Disney along with Las Vegas are my favorite places to vacation.

            Oh please I am dying here LOL, “Happy” LMAO I haven’t seen one happy one on that show LWofLA that’s for sure

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Haha….there is no “happy” in that group! Lol

          • Sandy Mersinas

            She’s a mean little shit!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            She is! Lol

          • chacha1

            yes she is !!!

    • loriann760

      I watch Little Women: LA, she can be quite nasty. She thinks nothing of calling people names and being mean, but now that they are showing her talking about doing DWTS, suddenly she is turning over a new leaf and says she wont be calling her “frenemy” names anymore.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Hmmm interesting … I’m not surprised.

      • chacha1

        she was brutal and violent and then tries to lie to the camera about being so so nice and even said she didn’t have a mean bone in her body, yet she flung a beer bottle so hard at Lila that the bottle neck stuck in the door, it would have killed Lila

      • RHONJ Fan

        I noticed the sudden change of character in the recent episode also. Terra the terrorist is not fooling anyone.

  • SMDRN66

    I had to laugh when she lied about not knowing how to be mean because she’s so sweet and nice. (Insert eye roll here) I thought she looked ridiculous in the team dance. Crawling through and around their legs? But I will give credit when it is due. She has done better than I expected. In each little film before they dance, she cries about wanting to be seen for her ability and not her disability. She’s pulling out the sympathy card and she’s getting scores way too high for what she is doing. It’s like Noah Galloway. He really was pretty good for a person with both arms and legs, let alone being an amputee. But after a while, it was just Sharna dancing around him and him lifting her. His scores began to fall as the crowd dwindled.

    Same thing is happening to Terra. Dances that are mainly jumping around with quick steps are easy for her. She was awful at the Paso Doble. I’m sure she does have several hernias. There is a reason why you aren’t able to resume normal activity until at least 6 weeks after surgery. All this dancing isn’t her normal activity. I can’t believe her OB/GYN signed off on her doing this. I’m sure she also ruptured the incision as well. She did just have a baby. Terra’s hormone levels are haywire right now. I understand this was a great opportunity for her, but this mean girl needs to put her children as her priority and not herself anymore.

    I had to laugh at Brianna’s comment on the show this week that DWTS were interested in her last season. Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      They showed her discussion with her doc on LWLA and he wasn’t too thrilled about her doing DWTS. He even told her on the show that it is very risky, especially after a c section. She could tear her incision, start bleeding, etc. Not a smart move. She basically told the doctor she didn’t care and she was going to do it anyway whether he wanted her to or not. I’m sure he signed off on it in a way that covers his ass if something should go wrong. I’m surprised the DWTS producers allowed her to compete this season knowing that she is a high risk. I’m sure she had to sign tons of paperwork so she doesn’t sue if something should happen.

      • SMDRN66

        Actually, he set himself up by signing off on allowing her to compete. Yes, Terra definitely had her mind made up, but she still needed to get medical clearance to compete. Even though he was pretty thorough about the risks and complications, he still okay’d her to do it. A credible doctor would have refused to give her approval. Instead of covering his ass, he just wrapped it up in a sling for her to sue.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          That’s not good!
          I worked on an ambulance as well as in a hospital for many years and patients would sign themselves out or refuse treatment “AMA” (Against Medical Advice) all the time. As long as they signed that, our asses were covered. I’m really surprised her doc would put himself at risk like that. I’m sure if he didn’t sign off on her DWTS contract, she would have doctor shopped around until she found one that would. It’s not smart that she is being tossed and twirled around while recovering from a c section. Smh. Everybody thinks it won’t happen to them until it does… She is selfish and only cares about herself- I’m not surprised.

          • SMDRN66

            I was shocked as well. I was a paramedic and did volunteer EMS for years before going back to school to become an RN. I worked in the ER and ICU. Now I work in mental health. I’m am very familiar with the AMA form. We had patients that would even refuse to sign that. So we would have a police officer or fire fighter sign as a witness that it was read to the patient who refused to sign it. It would have been one thing is Terra was a professional dancer, and someone who danced up until she was ready to give birth, I could see the doctor being a little more willing to release her. But as you well know, that wasn’t the case here.

            When Jennifer Gray was asked to compete, they found something wrong with her neck. I can’t remember if it was a tumor or a fracture but it was something undetected that could have really caused severe injury. So she had the surgery and competed the next years.

            Since Terra just stopped taking her BCP, and decided that she wanted another baby without asking Joe, it doesn’t surprise me that she put herself first. Remember when she asked Joe about having another one, and he basically, and quite rationally, told her no. Penny was going to need another surgery. He was going to have surgery and wouldn’t be able to help her with Penny. There money situation was still an issue. They couldn’t get credit to buy a house yet. And he said it was a bad time to have another child. Then she cried and told him that she was pregnant. Schmoe shouldn’t be surprised since she did the same thing with Penny.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I did pretty much the same thing as you. I worked as an EMT for years (paid and volunteer) and then went back to school and became a RRT. Then about 5 years ago, I went back to school again, got my masters and became a JHS/HS Biology teacher…lol. I have some medical issues of my own and can’t work in a hospital setting anymore.

            I haven’t really been watching DWTS the last few years- I read about it on the blogs, but I don’t even know who half of these people are…lol. I know Terra because I watch LWLA. I didn’t know that happened with Jennifer Gray, but it would have been smarter for Terra to wait another season. Don’t they have the show twice a year anyway? (fall & Spring?) She could have waited until the spring session- at least until her incision was fully healed.

            She seems very selfish to me. I’m pretty sure Joe still needs to have spine surgery and Penny’s health isn’t so great either. I don’t understand why she needed to have another baby right now. Smh. It seems like she kind of trapped him when she got pregnant with Penny- I don’t think he had any intentions of starting a family. He didn’t seem like he wanted to settle down any time soon, so this was her way of forcing him to settle down with her. I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before she is pregnant again. Smh. Unbelievable.

          • chacha1

            what a great comment and I can relate to everything you said regarding EMS because it was my life for close to 30 years. Terra once said she toured with Miley Cyrus as a dancer but then I read that she was a mushroom on that Miley Cyrus Tour …..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Lmao….Terra the Toadstool. 🍄

          • chacha1

            Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa

          • MsM

            I think Terra strong armed the OB into signing off with AMA. She’s THAT big of a bitch!

          • chacha1

            I know just what you are saying, I also worked as a paramedic as my career, Terra is very selfish and she is not a nice person at all.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            She is some piece of work. Only cares about herself.

          • MsM

            I just mentioned AMA too Why. I’m sure that’s how he covered his ass. He signed off under AMA that way she can just go do what she wants and he’s ok because he warned her not to and signed off because she wanted to, not because it was a medically sound idea.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That’s what I thought too. No legitimate/ethical doctor would risk his license and a major lawsuit because a patient of his wanted to go on a tv show. I would hope he covered his own ass legally just in case something bad were to happen to her. It really wasn’t a smart move on her part to participate this season. Doctors don’t just make up those post surgical guidelines for the hell of it!

            Clearly she is a very selfish person- heck, she just gave birth and she basically left her husband and 2 kids (one being a newborn no less) to go on a tv show. Just goes to show where her priorities lie and they are certainly not with her family.

            I have always hated non compliant patients like Terra. They don’t do what they are told and then wonder why things didn’t turn out the way they were supposed to. Smh.
            Noone ever thinks bad things will happen to them until they do. I’ve seen it way too many times in my career. Not a good idea to tempt fate for something as unimportant as DWTS. Your health is nothing to gamble with, especially when you are mother with 2 little babies who are fully dependent on you.

            Sorry for the long rant…lol..she just pisses me off!

          • chacha1

            rant away ITA with everything you are saying

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Thanks Cha! 😘

          • MsM

            It’s okay – she pisses me off too!! loll She’s one of those mean girls that just does what she wants when she wants and lets the chips fall where they may. I’ve had patients like her in the past as well – granted, my patient load is a lot different than what an EMT would have but we have patients that do the same thing.,. They go off their meds against advice, they do things that will put them square in the face of their triggers without proper preparation and then they get upset with everybody else for their choices. It’s irritating as hell!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            You are so right about Terra.

            As far as patients go- I didn’t see it so much with the emergency patients, but more so with my patients at the hospital. I worked in a hyperbaric and wound care center, where mostly diabetics would come for their chronic non healing wounds- the majority of them were there due to non compliance. Most wouldn’t watch their diet or take their meds the right way and then would wind up with amputations because of it.
            Also, my respiratory patients would complain they couldn’t breathe and an hour later, they’d be outside with the IV pole in front of the hospital having a cigarette. Smh…some people never learn…and some learn when it’s too late.

          • SMDRN66

            If her doc had Terra sign an AMA, she wouldn’t have been able to compete. You have to have full medical clearance from all your doctors to be able to be on the show. DWTS is pretty strict about that. Not so much that they care about the contestants, but it can causes problems with shooting if a contestant has to drop out too soon due to illness or injury. Years ago, NBC had a show called Stars Earn Stripes. There was so much controversy over this show because assholes said it promoted war. It was a star who was paired up with a combat vet and or police officer who would compete in missions. The stars were playing for military related charities.

            The late Chris Kyle was on it and partnered with Dean Cain. Jack Osbourne was supposed to be on it, but he had just recently been diagnosed with MS. Even though his neurologist signed off that he was in remission and could compete, NBC felt is was too physical for him and they would not be able to get insurance on him. Jack offered to buy his own insurance, but they declined. It was a big deal, and that’s the reason Sharon left AGT as a judge. She refused to work for NBC after what they did to her son. I’ll be honest. I watched the show, and I agree with NBC. This went far beyond the mountain climbing he had done, and the chance of him having a flair up was pretty darn high.

            Terra wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to be the first little person on DWTS no matter what the costs to herself and her family.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I didn’t know about that show Stars Earn Stripes, but I totally understand why medical clearance is such a big deal. I didn’t know that that had anything to do with Sharon leaving AGT.
            I know Terra wouldn’t miss that opportunity. Even if her own doctor wouldn’t clear her to dance, she would find one who would. I find it hard to believe Briana was offered a spot last year.

        • chacha1

          There is a player on the Chicago Cubs who had major surgery 6 months ago and the other night they allowed him to play …. today they said his doctor said NO WAY can he play …. Terra’s doctor is up sheets creek if he did sign off on her dancing .. DWTS show is brutal with a lot of practice and last week she had to learn two dances ….. I do not believe in the vote and they keep her on because she reps the LP community, I always thought she would come in third but she needs to leave now

        • MsM

          All she’d have to do would be sign a waiver waiving her right to sue him should something go wrong because he signed off. He could have also signed off AMA, that would protect him should she almost kill herself while dancing.

      • chacha1

        and for once I feel sorry for jerk off Joe her husband because he can barely walk himself and he was pushing a buggy with 2 babies in the stroller …. I hope he has help .. Terra is all about Terra and she was never a nice person, she is a violent person who needs anger management before dancing

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I’m sure they have a nanny or two to help. Neither one of them could do it alone, especially with 2 kids who can’t walk. She seems to put her own wants and needs above everyone else’s.

          • chacha1

            I agree

    • chacha1

      Great comment and ITA ….. If I remember correctly her doctor said not to do it but she talked him into signing off for her, I do not know of an ethical doctor who will jeopardize his career by signing off for a very stressful dance show with alot of rehearsal and many moves she has to make …. Poor Sasha is trying so hard to adjust to her height plus he has to be extra careful due to her surgery …..
      Tonya wanted to be on the show and I feel inside she is very jealous and you are right, I did not believe a word of that arrogant asshole Brianna who loves a pervert saying they wanted her 3′ high stank ass …. yep when monkeys fly out of my butt also

    • MsM

      Damn straight SMD – I highly doubt that DWTS approached Brianna for anything. Like Dani and I were chatting on another string – I’m sure there was an open call for LP’s and Terra was the only one with the balls to show up for auditions. Brianna has no talent save for being a loser magnet….

  • Oh Snarky Me

    It’s funny to read all the comments on here and compare them to how I see her on the show. I’ve never seen the Little Women show so I had no knowledge whatsoever of Terra’s personality. I see a new mom who is going through postpartum coupled with being away from her new baby all day so she can work–a bad combo. Add to that the physical issues of doing this show so soon after a C-section and it adds up to a perfect storm for a serious meltdown.

    Because I didn’t have any idea of her personality prior to the show, I see an underdog trying super hard. I felt awful for her in the team dance rehearsals when she said “I know they’re speaking in Russian so they can talk about me”. Very sad :o( She seems so sincere and nice, but apparently not?! Have I been bamboozled???

    Anyway, Sasha is doing an amazing job and he and Terra seem to get along well.

    • chacha1

      I have watched the show since the first episode, she is also a producer of the LP shows, NY, LA, ATL ….. she has never been nice and once told Todd to go and “suck his _____ ” yes she did, right on the show, then her husband was oinking at Christy and her husband and a fist fight broke out where Joe hid behind a chair and Todd and Eric tumbled around …. that is just two of many many horrible things Terra has done, but as a producer, what disgusts me even more is that she keeps a PERVERT named Matt Grundhoffer on the show after he called them OOMPS and then continued to send dick pics to other women and got caught ….. twice …. he did this while married to that other asshole Brianna, they call themselves Bonnie and Clyde and Terra and Joe socialize with them

      • Oh Snarky Me

        Holy crap!! I’m LMAO! I see this sweet new mom working her tail off on DWTS and she’s actually a nasty violent person?? Seriously, her husband was oinking at someone??? OK, so who is the real Terra? The terror on Little Women or the sweet insecure new mom on DWTS? I seriously wonder, I mean they tell you to do awful things on reality shows to “stay relevant and interesting”, don’t they? I’d like to think she’s actually the nice Terra, but I don’t think any of you will believe that one!

        • CeeJay

          She had no business putting her health in danger to be on DWTS. From what other LP on the show have said, DWTS had been negotiating with other cast members too. She didn’t want any of them to claim the title of “first little person to dance on DWTS”. She’s a violent woman who throws shit at people if they dare to disagree with her. I’ve recorded DWTS this season only so I can fast forward through to the end of each episode where each week I hope I’ll see the footage when she’s eliminated.

        • chacha1

          OSM the show where Joe, Terra’s husband was oinking at Christy was at a BBQ and Christy and her husband Todd were at another table when Joe started calling them names and making oinking sounds at Christy, Todd got very mad at Joe and went to shut him up when another LP husband jumped in and they started to fist fight while Joe hid behind Terra, it looked like two duffle bags going thru baggage claim at the airport ….. they were rolling all over the patio and then Traci fell down, OMG it was wild …. Traci and Eric are married and not on the show any more …. and Traci, she just always fell down and then cry all the time, what a menza morta that one was

        • chacha1

          I agree that reality shows have to have some drama but when Terra gets pissed she throws things, she threw a beer bottle at Lila/NY with such force that the bottle neck stuck in the door, she also threw a cup at Christy’s head at a cowboy bar ….. Dawn/NY told Christy/LA what Terra did with a beer bottle and then after Christy heard that she went and filed a police report against Terra because of the cup that hit her head. I do not think any of that is staged for the show, the beer bottle could have killed Lila seriously. Since Terra is producer of that show also I am wondering if it will be renewed.

        • MsM

          Chacha is telling you the truth Snark. Terra is a volatile, violent, potty mouthed gutter snipe who bashes anybody that doesn’t agree with her and she’s not afraid to be cruel in front of the cameras either.

    • K-Mill

      Yes, you are being bamboozled.

    • Havin Nunavit

      OMG

  • RHONJ Fan

    Terra the terrorist is a vile troll. She’s one of the nastiest and violent people on reality tv. I can’t watch DWTS because of the midget terrorist. She’s a bully and troublemaker.

  • TartLemon

    Before Terra had the C-section, they had a scene of a Dr visit where he told her it was not a good idea to do DWTS. Even Terra’s friends, while glad she got the offer, were skeptical of the health perils so soon after the C-section.

    Terra is a vile, nasty bully person. I don’t care what size she is. She’s still a feral human being.

    • chacha1

      Terra brought this show to us to prove that LP’s are no different than us and then proved that the majority of LP’s are mean and nasty …… I love the Little Couple Dr. Jen and Bill Klein, now there is the example of a very successful loving couple … I love that show

      • Jessica

        I love The Little Couple as well. I do nothing but smile watching that show 😀

        • MsM

          Dr Jen and Bill are awesome human beings. THEY definitely show that LP’s an be like everybody else. Terra’s crowd does nothing but reveal the vicious underbelly of the LP world…which is pretty much like the underbelly of the regular world which, I guess, shows us that LP’s CAN be just like average sized folks on every emotional and bizarre level.

          • chacha1

            this is true

  • chacha1

    I do have one nice thing to say about Terra, she does have great hair …. other than that she is a nasty human being

    • Dyan Shane

      Her hair is ALL fake. Weaves. So you can’t even give her that.

  • MsM

    Ok, I’m not one to bash a person’s weight because at one time I was very overweight (strangulated hernia took care of THAT issue…) but what I’d like to know is where does Terra get off bashing Christy for her weight and body distribution when Terra’s thighs are ginormous? Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black? She’s got a lot of balls bashing somebody else for being overweight when she’s actually LARGER than the person she’s bashing!?!

    • chacha1

      ITA

  • RubyT

    i’ve never seen her on her other show, but i enjoy watching her dance on this one. i hope she doesn’t give up.

  • Carolyn Mcmahon

    I am so SICK and tired of Terra Jolé getting high points on Dancing with the Stars! Terra CAN’T Dance, she crystal before every episode and the Judges see the clip of her crying and the FALL ALL OVER THEMSELVES with Praise and admiration for Terra Jolé. They put long skirts on Terra to hide the fact that her feet suck.
    I spend the whole time screaming at the TV.
    But then the Judges dog the other Dancers. And they Danced Good. I have been calling it Pitie Points!
    Terra Jolé is the MEANEST PERSON on TV! And she starts all of the Crap on LWLA. She lies all the time. She lied to Brianna about what the Publicist told her, she was told that Christy had NOTHING to do with the papers being served on Brianna. That she figured it on her own! But Terra ran and told Brianna that Christy did do it! I HATE People like Terra Jolé. Her and Brianna are MEAN GIRLS x1000 and MATT is a #^€.#%€#%€£}#>}%>}>~<!}##£%!|~?#£~**¥^€|#} piece of TRASH! How is the show allowing him to be on the show? Why isn’t he LOCKED up?
    Anyone who has watched the show from day one knows that Terra Jolé is a MAJOR Biatch and is the start of all of the fights on the show.

  • Dyan Shane

    They did a poll and most midgets said that word was not offensive. And it isn’t offensive! It never derived from offense, and just because it was used in carnivals, doesn’t make it bad, it was what they were called and still are.

  • Valhalkarie

    Her narcissism is discussing breeding children that will suffer worse than her because she wants to pretend she’s of able body,it’s so selfish!
