Reba McEntire may be a big-time country star with an amazing personality and drop-dead gorgeous looks, but that doesn’t mean that men are lining up to ask her out on a date.
The musical icon, who recently shared that she’s ready to find love again after splitting from ex-husband Narvel Blackstock, is proving that even the hottest celebrities have to wait for romance.
“You know I put that out about two weeks ago and not a darn thing has happened,” Reba, 61, tells The Insider’s Louis Aguirre about getting back into the dating pool, “So I guess I’m just too busy. Maybe that’s it!”
Perhaps, she’s right. In fact, Reba’s schedule has been pretty tight, as she is currently working on a new television show created by Marc Cherry, the man behind “Desperate Housewives.” Not only that, but Reba also recently dropped her brand-new inspirational double-disc album called “Sing It Now.”
“Timing is everything and everything happens for a reason,” she adds.
And, for those who wish to pursue the “Fancy” singer, there’s one thing you should know. Her 27-year-old son, racecar driver Shelby Blackstock, is the gatekeeper when it comes to his mama’s potential relationships. He has requirement that she cannot date anybody under 50.
“Yes. It’s [true],” says Reba, “I don’t think I agree, because in my mind I’m 35.”
We just love hearing that Shelby is looking out for his mom!
