“Little Women: LA” star Terra Jolé sat down with Radar Online for an exclusive interview about Briana Renee, one of her cast mates from the Lifetime reality show. The two used to be close friends, but had a falling out when Briana started to date husband Matt Ericson. Even though the relationship caused tension in their friend group, Terra said she is trying to work on things.
After finding out Matt was sexting other women, Terra suggested Briana leave him. Instead, a wedge was placed in between the two women. “My relationship with Briana is something totally separate than my relationship with Matt, and I try to keep the two separated this season,” she said. “I try my best to figure out where I’m going in my relationship with Briana because we’ve been friends since we were in our late teens, early twenties. So it’s hard to just give up a relationship like that.”
While the sexting was a huge issue for Terra, she’s willing to let it go if it will make things between her and Briana. “That was my biggest — that was a huge issue for everyone I think,” she said about Matt’s disrespectful behavior. “But Briana loves the guy, so if he’s good to Briana then we have to respect that until things change.”
It doesn’t mean she’s willing to forgive him. “Do I think Matt’s a good guy? Probably not,” Terra said. “Would I put him in my best husband list? Hell no!”
Ultimately, it’s all about what Briana wants, even if Terra doesn’t agree. “Would it be my choice [getting back together with Matt]? No,” she said. “Is her life my life? No. But if that’s what makes her happy, then she needs to go for it. But, it’s definitely caused tension in the group.”
Terra is currently pregnant with her second child. Her story and more will unfold on Season 5 of “Little Women: LA” when it premieres on Lifetime Wednesday, July 13 at 9 p.m. EDT.
