Reba McEntire, the legendary country music diva, was born in a tiny Oklahoma town and reared on her family’s ranch, cooking, cleaning, and caring for livestock. Reba’s mother had ambitions of becoming a country singer; however, Reba instead went to school to become a teacher.
Reba followed in her mother’s footsteps into public school teaching and eventually realized her ambition of being not only a country singer but one of the greatest stars, receiving worldwide prominence.
She also showed her strength by surviving her 26-year divorce from her music manager husband, moved to Nashville, and launching her own company.
Moving on from a marriage she didn’t want to end couldn’t have been simple for Reba, but one glance at her lovely house and the new life she’s built afterwards demonstrates her resilience and ability to achieve no matter what.
The singer got a good bargain when she sold her Beverly Hills home. She paid $9 million for it in 2009 and sold it for $22.25 million to an unidentified bidder in 2015.
She describes her new house as African Cowboy-inspired, and it is loaded with Western décor as well as photos from her numerous journeys to Africa. Her house is decorated with dark woods, expensive leathers, and cow skulls.
The home is decorated with well selected art and pleasant textures. A breakfast bar with marble countertops and oak and leather stools is located within the kitchen.
The kitchen has classic cream cabinets with black knobs, coffee cup racks, a huge fridge, and white flowers. The kitchen opens into the dining area, which has floor-to-ceiling windows and an attractive oak table ideal for family gatherings.
The home, which is filled with books and family mementos, also has a yard with a black wicker dining table and matching chairs.
McEntire began dating Hollywood actor Rex Linn in 2020, although the two had known each other since 1991, when they met on the filming of “The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw.”
Linn promised Reba she could contact him whenever she wanted to chat after her terrible divorce and her mother’s cancer diagnosis, and the country singer took him up on his kind offer to provide a listening ear, comfort, and guidance.
During the epidemic, the two texted each other to get to know each other better and even had virtual coffee dates since Reba was in Tennessee and Linn was in California.
Reba claims Linn has been sending her food from all over the nation, including ice cream, lobster rolls, and pecan pie.
During the second season launch of her Spotify podcast “Living & Learning with Reba McEntire,” with Linn as the first guest, the pair discussed the beautiful routines they have as a method of staying together despite the pandemic and living in separate places.
Linn is most known for his role as Frank Tripp in the television series CSI: Miami, but he has also appeared in films such as Cheaper by the Dozen, Rush Hour, and Django Unchained. The 65-year-old actor, like Reba, was reared in Oklahoma when his parents relocated from Texas when he was 13 years old.
McEntire said in an interview that they have lovely nicknames for one other and that they have no intentions to marry.
She is ‘Tater Tot,’ he’s ‘Sugar Tot,’ and together they’re the ‘Tots, McEntire said. Amazing storyteller, gentleman, and hysterical.
Reba said that if they were married, they would have to perform many ceremonies to accommodate all of their guests.
The pair both have a strong desire to work, and Reba shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. She released the box set “Revived Remixed Revisited” in 2021, which includes a duet with Dolly Parton, a Lifetime Christmas movie, and sold-out gigs in Las Vegas with Brooks & Dunn during the Wrangler NFR.
Reba is an example to anybody who has been dealt a bad hand in their relationship, but she has demonstrated that with the determination to achieve, one can conquer anything and come out even better.
