The 'Little Women: LA' Cast Proves Age Doesn't Matter, Because They've All Accomplished So Much
The cast of Little Women: LA are all at exciting points in their lives, be it because of an unexpected pregnancy, a surprising new direction for their careers, or a new marriage. But seeing how they sometimes struggle to make things happen, it's a reminder that the ages of the Little Women: LA cast doesn't impact how much they've been able to accomplish. The show may be designed to show that little people live completely normal lives, but it also shows how normal it is for a group of women to all be in different stages of their careers and personal lives at different times.
By the time most of these ladies made it through their 20s, they'd already made (and often changed) successful careers, but most of them hadn't met their husbands or started a family — and even those who were married or had kids didn't always see things work out perfectly. This season, we're seeing that some of them are still looking for the perfect relationship or aren't totally satisfied with their jobs.
And you can always count on their Instagrams to deliver truly adorable Throwback Thursdays... memories from growing up, embarrassing school photos, very '90s hair — anything that lets you know it all just gets better with age. Here are some timelines of the cast's lives to show just how much they've each accomplished, and how different all of their paths have been.
