Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond says the Real Housewives inspired her dress for her daughter’s wedding

Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond is a not-so-secret Bravo fan.

The food and lifestyle expert, 52, revealed how the dress she wore to her daughter Alex’s wedding was a subtle nod to the Real Housewives Of New York in a fun blog post on Tuesday.

Ree purposefully picked a mother-of-the-bride look from designer Jovani because of how the fashion house factored into the reality show’s drama in season 10.

Admitting her obsession, the cookbook author told readers how the ‘Real Housewives are my imaginary best friends and I wanted them to come to the wedding with me.’

The day before she teased her dress story, sharing an Instagram of her look with the caption: ‘if you know the significance of this, raise your hand.’

She later added: ‘THIS WAS NO COINCIDENCE’ with the Luann de Lesseps song Feelin’ Jovani in the background.

Then in her blog, Ree explained: ‘The Real Housewives of New York picked out my mother-of-the-bride dress. Well…sort of.’

RHONY fans will remember how Luann and Dorinda Medley got into a fight after The Countess donned a dazzling Jovani look for her cabaret show.

Her outfit choice upset frenemy Medley, who was also wearing the designer that night and claimed she was the one who introduced Luann to Jovani in the first place.

After a few drinks Dorinda got a bit rowdy in the audience and started clapping and sarcastically yelling, ‘Jovani! JOVANI! Thank you, Jovani! JOVANI!’ while Luann was starting her performance.

Ree couldn’t shake the scene from her head and decided to wear Jovani once her hunt for a mother-of-the-bride dress began.

‘After sifting through lots of glittery, sequined, strapless, and glitzy options, I finally found a Jovani dress that looked like it might work,’ she wrote in the blog.

‘It had an allover soft blue scrolly pattern against a nude shell, and what really stood out to me were the sleeves, which were neither long nor short. Instead, they were open on the underside and gave the impression of a cape or shawl.’

She ordered the look and let in hang in her closet while entertaining other options in the run-up to the wedding.

The Jovani was the winner in the end, as Ree explained: ‘In recent months I’d ordered and rejected/returned about eight different dresses, winding up with one additional (non-Jovani) option.

‘Until the wedding day, I still didn’t know which one I’d wear…but ended up going with the Jovani! I can’t seem to type the name without an exclamation point!’

It was the perfect wedding look for Ree, who wowed in the soft blue number during daughter Alex and new husband Mauricio Scott’s Saturday nuptials at the family 433,000 acre ranch in Oklahoma.

Ree was pleased with her choice, telling readers while it was ‘a little outside [her] comfort zone in terms of being snug’ it was better suited for the outdoor wedding.

‘The other choice was more fancy and glitzy, and it wouldn’t have felt quite right at the ranch,’ she explained, adding ‘And besides…all eyes were on Alex and Mauricio anyway!’

The foodie finished with one last shout-out to her RHONY friends, saying: ‘It was so nice to have my favorite Real Housewives BFF’s at the wedding with me. Even if only in my imagination.’

Drummond through quite the celebration at the family ranch over the weekend.

Ree was emotional as she shared video of her eldest child Alex and husband Ladd Drummond’s father-daughter dance from her wedding this past weekend.

She captured the special moment for fans, writing ‘brb crying’ as she showed the radiant bride, 23, swaying with her dad.

The Drummonds were especially grateful to celebrate after Ladd almost died in a car accident on their sprawling cattle ranch earlier this year.

The rancher, who took off his neck brace for the dance, looked like he was overwhelmed with feelings as he held his girl and whispered into her ear during their dance.

Alex’ dress flowed down as dad lead stepped across a floor decorated with a beautiful crest with the newlyweds last name.

The Drummonds, who are reportedly worth upwards of $200million between her media empire and his family’s cattle business, were feeling blessed to be together for Alex’s nuptials, which happened in the wake of a devastating accident on the sprawling ranch that Ladd’s family has owned for generations.

Ladd, 51, and nephew Caleb, 21, were each driving a Himmat Fire Truck when they collided head-on after winds caused visibility to decrease, with Caleb reportedly ejected 70 feet from the truck, since neither man was wearing a seat belt.

After the accident, which took place on March 10, both men were taken to the St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Caleb was admitted in critical condition with head, arm, leg and internal injuries, according to the report by Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Ree revealed in a March 15 blog post that both Ladd and Caleb were responding to a fire on the ranch when the accident happened.

While Ladd initially refused help, he was taken to the hospital after learning his neck was broken in two different places, which was nearly catastrophic.

Fortunately Ladd was able to attend his daughter’s special day wearing his neck brace.

Ree, who is said to be worth about $50million solo, gushed about her husband as she shared a photo of them watching wedding day rehearsals unfold.

‘Love you, Ladd. (A lot.),’ she captioned the photo.

She also shared another rehearsal day photo with the silly caption, ‘Our honeymoon baby is getting married tonight. (TMI?)’

Ree and Ladd have been married since 1996 and together share daughters Alex, Paige, 21, and sons Bryce, 18, and Todd, 17.

And the Pioneer Woman made sure to use all of her food and decorating skills to make Alex’s day as special as can be.

Catering was provided by Ree’s restaurant The Mercantile, according to Delish, and the newlyweds couldn’t have looked any happier digging into their decadent meal.

The wedding festivities seemed to go off without a hitch, despite strong Oklahoma winds threatening to overtake the event.

It wasn’t quite clear if Ree’s husband Ladd was helping organize or still taking things easy as he recovers from a shocking car crash on the family property in March.

    Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know has made chart history, ten years after it was first released.

    The song was just certified 14-times platinum, tying it with Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road for the most certified song in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

    The news comes just five months after Old Town Road was crowned the most-certified song in music history.

    Old Town Road also holds the record for the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, after spending nineteen weeks at the top spot.

    Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know was first released in Australia in 2011, and took about a month until it reached No. 1 on the ARIA chart.

    It took a bit longer to catch fire in the States, but after fifteen weeks inching up the charts it eventually hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 after a huge promotional push that included an American Idol performance and a cover on Glee.

    It spent eight weeks at the top and a total of 59 weeks in the Hot 100.

    Last year, Gotye was named ARIA’s Australian Artist of the Decade thanks to the success of the song.

    The singer and musician, whose real name is Wouter ‘Wally’ De Backer, thanked fans for support and said that he hopes to release new music soon.

    ‘Sincere thanks to everyone who has listened to and supported my music over the years,’ Gotye said, as reported by The Daily Telegraph.

    ‘In some ways it feels like Somebody That I Used to Know and Making Mirrors came out more than a decade ago.’

    He added: ‘And for anyone who’s wondering – yes, the follow-up album will be released in the next decade. Probably.’

    She is currently in the UK filming a new project.

    And Chloe Grace Moretz wrapped up in a black coat on Monday as she took her dog for a walk around London alongside a male companion.

    The actress, 23, was seen clutching the lead of her majestic raven-haired pooch as she strolled down the road and chatted to the gentleman beside her.

    She kept things casual in denim jeans and Converse trainers, but made sure to prioritse safety amid the coronavirus pandemic by sporting a face mask.

    Chloe’s blonde tresses were swept over to one side in loose waves as she rocked minimal make-up for the outing.

    Her companion kept a low profile in a padded gilet and green jumper which he teamed with jeans.

    He rested a small black shoulder bag across his torso as he escorted Chloe to a vehicle. The pair chatted for some time as her dog eagerly watched the gentleman.

    The identity of the man is unknown but MailOnline have reached out to Chloe’s reps for comment.

    A revitalized take on the 1940s animated franchise about the adventures and antics of a cat (Tom) and a mouse (Jerry), the 2021 film had the second-highest domestic opening numbers of the pandemic.

    According to THR, the film raked in $13.7M from 2,475 theaters and $38.8M globally in February.

    The film stars Ken Jeong, Michael Pena and Colin Jost among others. Another hit for Warner Bros was Wonder Woman 1984, which still holds the top grossing slot with $16.7M on opening weekend.

    Chloe— who plays a wedding planner in the film — spoke about the project in an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, saying that she felt it made her a better actor.

    ‘It was so strange. I definitely think I’m a better actor now after doing that project. Half of the time I was improvising opposite nothing because they’re silent characters,’ she said.

    ‘I’d imagine in my head what they’re improving back and then continue forward in the scene. So it was definitely a brain twister.’

    The Greta star also revealed what was used as place markers for the characters during filming, in a November interview with People.

    Chloe said: ‘Tom was a stick with a name tag (seriously) and for Jerry at least I had a little to scale model of him.’

    She said the experience was ‘so much fun,’ also saying that the animators really helped to ‘push the boundaries’ with what they achieved.

    Big Brother Australia has been whipped in the ratings by Channel Nine’s Lego Masters.

    The Channel Seven show hasn’t captured audiences as hoped – and insiders are blaming the cast, an alleged source told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

    A lack of ‘eye candy’ and ‘young, hot singles’ in favour of an ‘all ages’ line-up is the culprit, an insider claims.

    ‘When something underperforms like this, obviously fingers get pointed and there is a lot of chatter that the casting just wasn’t right,’ the alleged source told the paper.

    They went on to say that Big Brother would have done better if it had featured the sort of cast that has been a hit for Nine’s Married At First Sight.

    ‘I think there is some thought that that show could have benefited more from a cast that reflects something like Married At First Sight,’ they added.

    According to The Daily Telegraph, Big Brother Australia is averaging just 500,000 an episode.

    This year’s castmates include fashionista Sarah Jane Adams, 66, Martha Kalifatidis’ mother Mary Kalifatidis, 56, and Real Estate Agent Daniel Hayes, 48.

    Lego Masters dominated the OzTAM ratings in late April.

    The brick building competition topped the demographics and pulled in 739,000 metro viewers.

    The figure put it ahead of Channel Seven’s Big Brother premiere, which launched to just 662,000 viewers.

    The Monday prior, the Lego Masters premiere was the top entertainment program of the night.

    Anna Heinrich has hit back at trolls who slammed her for posing in a bikini just two weeks after she welcomed her baby girl, Elle.

    In November, the same month she gave birth to her first child, the former Bachelor star enjoyed an early 34th birthday on board a yacht on Sydney Harbour with husband Tim Robards, 38, and their pals.

    In photos shared to Instagram, the first-time mother looked nothing short of sensational in a black bandeau bikini top and matching high-waisted briefs – but she gained the negative attention of critics for sharing the images.

    In an interview with Stellar’s Body and Soul Magazine, Anna said of the photos: ‘The intention behind the image wasn’t to say, “look at me, look at my body, look how I’ve recovered.” I put it up because I was having a great time.

    ‘I’m not trying to make anyone feel bad, I’m just living my life. Instagram is a fraction of what I am.’

    Anna went on to say that there is no right way to have a ‘mum body’ or recover from childbirth.

    ‘There is no ideal. We’re all unique, we’re going down different paths and there’s no right or wrong way. I don’t understand why people criticise – it’s a reflection on themselves,’ she said.

    Anna added, ‘We shouldn’t be criticising people for how they choose to live their life and how they recover.’

    In the photo shoot accompanying the interview, Anna posed with daughter Elle, five months, both of them sporting beaming smiles.

    In the picture, Anna wore a grey bodysuit with a multi-coloured woollen coat, while Elle donned a crocheted beige onesie.

    Anna won over husband Tim Robard’s heart in the 2013 season of The Bachelor.

    They wed at a fairytale Italian ceremony in June 2018, and welcomed their daughter in November.

    Amy Schumer has had her hands full playing the role of first-time mother to her two-year-old son, Gene.

    And on Friday Schumer, who turns 40 on June 1, was seen juggling her multiple roles while on the set of the comedy in New York City.

    Schumer was spotted walking to her trailer in black sweatpants, a long black puffer jacket and matching sneakers.

    She had her strawberry blonde tresses styled long, with some soft waves and a part on the slight left.

    In keeping with health and safety protocols in the wake of COVID-19, she wore a plastic shield while out on the street working.

    New York City comedian Murray Hill was also seen on the set, presumably waiting to shoot a scene. The so-called drag king entertainer was dressed in his Busby Murray Gallagher persona, which includes his retro burgundy tuxedo.

    The streaming service announced the 10-episode comedy back in July 2019, when it was called Love, Beth, according to TV Insider.

    Schumer plays Beth, an unsatisfied Manhattan woman who’s feeling uninspired by her successful New York life and lackluster relationship.

    But when an unexpected death occurs in the family, Beth goes back home to her family farm and discovers her childhood journal entries. The entries help spark reinvention and remembrance of what makes her happy, and eventually empower her to take charge of her life.

    The storyline will be told, in part, through flashbacks to Beth’s teen self.

    Schumer’s co-stars will include Michael Rapaport, who will play Leonard, teenage Beth’s father who’s down on his luck.

    Michael Cera has the role of a farmer and chef named John.

    Peter Andre has shared a video of the ‘screaming and madness’ in his house during 10 ‘crazy’ days of isolation after his son Junior, 15, tested positive for Covid.

    In a new YouTube clip shared on Friday, the Mysterious Girl hitmaker, 48, gave a candid insight into lockdown with his doctor wife Emily and four children.

    It comes after Junior told fans that he ‘doesn’t want to die’ while sharing a dramatic update on how he’s feeling amid his coronavirus battle earlier this week. He first revealed he had tested positive on 29 April.

    Filming at the start of their isolation period and at the end, Peter revealed that Junior and his sister Princess, 13, who he both shares with ex-wife Katie Price, had been isolating at his home.

    While his other two children – Amelia, seven, and Theodore, four, who he shares with his doctor wife Emily, had also been forced to home school.

    Peter admitted that he felt bad for Emily who had to now do all of her Zooms from their house and joked: ‘She’s in all day in one spot in the living room and all she can hear is the screaming and the madness going on in the house.’

    At the start of the video, the musician said: ‘Junior had a PCR test and has tested positive for Covid.

    ‘He had the headaches, the body aches, he really wasn’t feeling great. He’s had it – and now we’ve all got to self-isolate for 10 days.

    ‘The kids are at home and it’s back to homeschooling. Junior’s up in his room not feeling great and Emily has to now do all her Zooms from home.

    ‘She’s in all day in one spot in the living room and all she can hear is the screaming and the madness going on in the house.’

    The candid video then showed an ‘exhausted’ Peter running after his two youngest children as they explored the house, jumped on furniture and lay on top of a pile of laundry.

    Later during the YouTube footage, Princess entertained Amelia and Theodore with an oversized microphone.

    While Emily tried to preoccupy her family by baking a red velvet cake with Peter treating everyone to a tasty BBQ.

    Peter was also every inch the doting father as he checked in on his poorly and coughing son Junior who was tucked up in bed.

    At the end of the video, the musician admitted he was ‘exhausted’ but that he had ‘fun’ with his family.

    Peter said: ‘Well it has been a crazy, crazy 10 days. Today is our last day of isolation and we are like: “Oh my gosh!” We can’t wait to get out and about.

    ‘I want to say thank you to everybody that sent lovely messages to Junior, honestly, it’s been so overwhelming on Instagram, personal messages. People have been so kind.

    ‘I know he really appreciates it, we haven’t seen much of him, I’ll be honest, I think as of tomorrow when we can get out of isolation. I think that will really boost everyone up.’

    Earlier this week, Junior told fans that he ‘doesn’t want to die’ while sharing a dramatic update on how he’s feeling amid his coronavirus battle.

    The teen detailed how his symptoms have been changing, explaining that he’s now suffering from a ‘sore throat’ but originally had a banging head and achey body.

    Speaking during an Instagram Live, the son of Peter Andre and Katie Price also reassured fans that although not feeling 100 per cent it’s ‘not severe, just annoying’.

    During the Live video chat, filmed while he’s in isolation with his family at his dad’s house, some of Junior’s followers asked if he was worried.

    Staying positive, Junior replied: ‘Don’t manifest it. Listen, if it happens it happens. But I know God wants me to live my life to the finish, so I’m not gonna die from Covid and if I do, I do. I don’t wanna die.’

    Junior then detailed how his ‘severe… just annoying’ symptoms have changed since he started feeling poorly, before admitting that he’s a little baffled as to why he’s been getting them as a young person.

    He said: ‘The first few days, my head was the worst. My head was banging so much. I don’t know how I got symptoms, because I’m a child, I’m 15. But my head was banging, my body was aching, my throat was fine.

    ‘And then all of a sudden my body’s sort of stopped aching… my head still bangs but not as much… but my throat is so sore. It’s killing me.

    ‘It’s not part of the symptoms I don’t think, but maybe I’ve got something else with Covid. Yeah, I have Covid.’

    Junior also detailed how feeling achey and having a ‘bad backache’ has meant he’s had trouble staying occupied as he can’t play his PlayStation 5.

    He explained that looking at his phone or the TV screen while playing his games can make his ‘head hurt’ so he ‘doesn’t actually know what to do’.

    He then continued that although he does have Covid and is showing a series of symptoms: ‘It’s not severe… it’s just annoying.’

    Junior’s sister Princess also gave fans an insight into their time in isolation as she shared a video to Instagram last week.

    The teenager filmed herself while she was waiting for dad Peter to prepare the family’s lunch, admitting that she was ‘so bored’.

    Showing their close bond, Princess and her doting dad bantered about making cups of tea each evening before having an ‘opera-off’ and him belting out ‘Figero’.

    Princess also received a call from her mum Katie while she was on live with her Instagram followers, but declined the call saying it was probably her sister Bunny.

    Junior announced he had tested positive for COVID-19 in an Instagram post shared on 29 April.

    He posted a message with his followers that read: ‘I have tested positive for COVID.’

    In the statement, which was posted on a black background, the teenager also included anguished and fuming emojis.

    It marks Junior’s third brush with the virus. In March 2020, Junior revealed that he was showing symptoms of coronavirus, just hours after his father expressed fears over his children contracting it.

    Taking to Instagram Stories, Junior said that while he has not been diagnosed, he was making sure he was staying safe.

    Junior said: ‘These aren’t easy times as we know. I am videoing this to tell you I am showing symptoms of the coronavirus. It is not me saying I have it , I am showing symptoms. Everyone please stay safe these aren’t easy times like I said.’

    In November, Junior was forced to isolate again due to a coronavirus outbreak at his school. According to his dad, Junior was annoyed he still had to complete his lessons at home but luckily didn’t have any symptoms.

    The teenager splits his time between his father and mother’s homes, as does his sister Princess Andre, 13, who Peter 48, also shares with Katie, 42.

    Peter split from the former glamour model in 2009 after four years of marriage and went on to welcome Amelia, seven, and Theo, four, with his current wife Emily, 31.

    Katie is mum to Harvey, 18, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke. While she welcomed Bunny, six, and Jett, seven, with ex Kieran Hayler.

    Peter also tested positive for Covid in December, while his wife Emily – who has been working as a frontline NHS doctor during the pandemic – tested positive in June.

    As for Junior’s mum Katie, she received her first vaccine in April alongside her beau Carl Woods, with both falling sick with a fever and nausea afterwards.

    Katie’s eldest son Harvey has now been fully vaccinated against the virus. The teen was rushed to hospital in February after his first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine caused his temperature to sky-rocket.

    He has allegedly suffered little reaction to his second dose.
