Reba McEntire Opens Up About Her Divorce Saying 'Not My Idea'


Reba McEntire Opens Up About Her Divorce Saying 'Not My Idea'

Keep your head up, girl.

When news hit that Reba was getting a divorce, it shocked us. When we found out that her ex was getting on with her former best girlfriend, it made us angry. But this? This news? It darn near breaks our hearts.

In an interview with CMT, Reba said that the divorce was unequivocally not her idea. “The divorce was not my idea. I didn’t want it in any shape, form, or fashion.” After 35 years together, Reba and Narvel Blackstock split seemed sudden in August of 2015. “I just want everyone to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable.”

Reba did credit her faith and relationship with God for getting her through the darkest times. “I prayed every day to help me have the strength to move one foot in front of the other to continue on with what I’m supposed to be doing and why He put me on this Earth in the first place,” Reba went on to say during the chat with CMT’s Cody Allen.

While it sounds like she’s had some dark days, it also sounds like they’re behind her. and Reba’s got a great relationship with God and a healthy outlook on life. Go get ‘em, Reba!

That is disgusting that your “best friend” got involved with your husband. Nonetheless Reba, you are such a strong woman and with God by your side, you can’t fail. We pray that your new journey is an absolute awesome one. We love you dearly Reba.

Reba you are a strong and beautiful women. Your faith in God will guide you now and forever. Remember he is the one that has lost the most. Not you. My husband of 49 yrs passed in 2008. We were soul mates. He said he would always be watching over me. I feel his presents everyday and night. He said I will take care of you and send you pennies from heaven. I said pennies will not buy much. He said did i say copper pennies? I will send you gold pennies and watch over you all the time. I will not remarry because he was the best. At 16yrs old my dad gladly signed for us to get married. The best thing my Dad ever did for me. every time I see a penny on the ground I pick it up and save it. My son said Mom why do you always pick up those pennies. I told him they were pennies from his Dad. My son is just like his Dad taking care of me in every way he can. God has richly blessed me. Thank you God for being there for me. Clara

Reba, you are the most beautiful person I know. I don’t mean this in a mean way, but your X is an idiot. However, God is setting you on a different path and that is going to be as beautiful journey. May God Bless you each and every day. God will always be by your side. I have been a fan of yours since you first sang your first song. I have come to know that you are a good person inside and out. Never chance that. Stay strong.

I’m sure you’re ready know this, but God will never give you more than what you can handle! He knows us better than we know were selves. I am not much of a religious person but I do believe that he does not give us more than we can handle. He has a plan for you that none of us can foresee .Keep your smile your faith and your beautifully written songs. some people may say that the experiences we go through is what makes us, but I believe that it’s our choices and our faith that make us who we are.

Please. Stay. Strong. Reba. We. Love. And. Adore. You.

I have been a fan, appreciates your music and admired your career since the late 80’s. Your music gas got e through some pretty rough patches in life. Like you, it was difficult, but with faith, and by the grace of God you get through it. Like your sign says, Wish,bone, funny bone, most of all you have “backbone”!
No doubt you’ll stay on top of your game with grace and dignity.

You have so much to be thankful for. I am a true believer things happen for a reason. God is definately getting you ready for your next adventure. I hope one day to be as classy as you are.

@Reba: the man is not worthy of you. Who knows what goes through people’s minds. The grass is NEVER greener on the other side. People think it is easier to leave than to address issues. Trust me it will come back to bite him in the butt. And personally I can’t wait.

Dear Reaba, I am a single mother I was married for 12 years, I have raised my children by my self. I turned to God and your music. When I fill alone and when i need a pick me up,I listen to your songs,and even my girls listen to you music when they are filling down. My son loves you music to,but his favorite is Fancy, My one wish is that I could meet you in person. I am such a big fan of yours. I wouldn’t mind meeting all the ones on your Reba show either.
