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!

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.

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.

@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.

Your divorce shocked and surprised me. You are a beautiful woman inside and out. Keep your eyes focused on God and he will see you through. You are a woman of faith and Narvel is just a fool!

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.
