Our hearts go out to Terra Jolé. After dealing with her daughter’s scary health issues in season 7 of Little Women: LA, the challenges just keep coming. In season 8, premiering Thursday, April 4 on Lifetime at 10 p.m., the reality star has even more issues to deal with as daughter Penny seems to continue to regress health-wise — and Terra’s marriage does the same. In In Touch‘s exclusive first look at the season premiere, the mom opens up that it all “scares [her] to death” — both because of “what it’s going to do to [her] marriage,” but also because her daughter isn’t the same little girl she knew before. “I just want her to be her,” Terra cries. “I just want Penelope to be Penny.” Check out the exclusive clip above, and don’t forget to tune in for the full episode on Lifetime at 10 p.m.
