In the Little Women: LA episode ‘March Madness’, while Elena Gant heads to Russia to be with her father and family in crisis, Christy Gibel and her husband Todd seek medical advice about losing weight. On a lighter note, Tonya Banks “questions the legitimacy” of a couture line designed by Mary Russell, Terra Jole’s fashion designer friend from London, UK.
Mary Russell is known as Britain’s small model — she is 4’1” tall. Since 2014, Mary has been working with Models of Diversity (MOD) which is committed to diversifying the catwalk. Mary, now a 47-year-old single mom, says “when I’m doing catwalk shows the adrenaline kicks in, and the excitement helps to numb the pain – but as soon as I’m backstage I need to sit down and have a break because my back’s playing up.” All the more reason for Mary to transition into a career of fashion design! Little Women: LA airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Lifetime.
