On the Little Women: Atlanta episode ‘Counterfeit Monie,’ Tiffany “Monie” Cashette is getting grilled. When her maid of honor Miss Juicy proposes a toast to Monie and her fiance Morlin, not everyone raises a glass. Morlin never did ask Monie’s father for his blessing before proposing to his daughter.
Meanwhile, while the ladies go tubing down the Chattahoochee River, Monie is challenged by Ashley “Minnie” Ross. Minnie questions Monie’s status as a little person. Monie is 4’6″ tall. (Minnie is 4’3″ tall.) The organization Little People of America (LPA) defines dwarfism “as a medical or genetic condition usually results in an adult height of 4’10” or shorter.” LPA explains: “The average height of an adult with dwarfism is 4’0, but typical heights range from 2’8 to 4’8.” So yes, according to the LPA, Monie fits the definition of a little person. Little Women: Atlanta airs Wednesdays at 10pm on Lifetime.
