Reba McEntire Reveals She’s Dating Someone New
Having a podcast is very trendy these days. Country singer Reba McEntire recently jumped into the podcast arena. On a recent episode of Living & Learning With Reba McEntire, the topic of the day was dating. Melissa Peterman co-hosts the podcast with Reba.
Melissa Peterman, a close friend of the singer’s, likely wasn’t surprised by the news. During the podcast, Reba revealed that her friend was present at one of the new couple’s first dates in January.
Reba’s new man is CSI:Miami star Rex Linn, Taste of Country reports.
Once the pandemic hit, they had to take their romance virtual with “Facetime” dates. But Reba doesn’t mind. She said that talking and texting is a “really good way to get to know” someone.
While the singer doesn’t have any photos of her new man on her social media, he has one from their January dinner date.
It sounds like things are going great for Reba McEntire and her boyfriend. She says that he is “very interesting, very funny, very smart.” And he’s into her, too.
Melissa Peterman chimed in during the discussion to say that the couple are “real cute together.”
