Reba: How Many Photos She Has On Her Phone (It’s A Lot)
Reba recently released a lifestyle book called Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots. The book includes over 50 recipes from Reba’s family traditions and her restaurant, Reba’s Place (Atoka, Oklahoma), as well as many photos and stories.
When we interviewed Reba last week (10/27), she told us how she gathered stuff for the book, “I mainly at the beginning stuck with the stories through my little app, and then we needed pictures. I have a lot of pictures. I want to tell you how many I have on my phone right now; it’s a lot if I can figure out how to do it. Well, I can’t figure it out, but there are a bunch; they’re in the hundred thousands.”
She added, “I have to go through and delete every once in a while when I’m just sitting around or maybe on a plane; I’ll delete because I have so many.”
Reba even explained the process of getting all the photos just right. She said, “It was starting at the beginning what was on my computer and my phone and just dragging them over onto my desktop and saying, ‘I like this,’ and if it had been out before, we stayed away from that because we wanted new pictures. Lord knows we had em.'”
She admitted it was time-consuming, “I would always go ‘Aw, look at this picture,’ or ‘What do you think about that one?’ I had to stay focused. I do kind of scatter off once in a while.”
Reba’s longtime friend and fellow country star Wynonna Judd has been added to NBC’s The Voice as “Mega Mentor.” Judd will mentor the artists who have made it through the Battle Rounds as teams prepare for the three-way Knockouts beginning November 6.
Reba posted a video clip of her and Wy from behind the scenes at the show on Instagram. In the clip, Reba says, “I love her being on ‘The Voice.’ We’re neighbors in Tennessee, and we have to get out here in L.A. to get to see each other.” She added, “We’ve been on shows together forever.” Wy adds, “I know, and when I found out I was doing it, it’s one of the reasons I decided to do this.”
