As a big fan of Food Network I couldn’t miss “The Pioneer Woman” cooking show. Even my husband wanted to watch it. His motives were totally different from mine, though. I am not a cowgirl (neither my husband wish to be a cowboy) and do not wish to be one but I wouldn’t mind to have a few animals, my own fruit and veggy garden and to live in the middle of nowhere. Though, that’s a totally different image from Ree Drummond‘a life. I actually think that with my plans and dreams of a small farm I would be more of a cowgirl that she is.
No, I am not Ree Drummond fan. I do not read her blog. I used to be interested in her photography tips but I’m not anymore. I do not have any of her books, btw, from what I’ve read about them they are really poorly written and every single recipe she’s selling in one of her books are available for FREE on her blog.
After watching her show I though: gosh, is she a superwoman or what? homeschooling, cooking, baking, keeping sinfully clean not one but two houses, blogging all about it, editing photos, creating her own Photoshop actions, and tutorials, and much more! How do you do that Ree? In between you spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to upgrading, not your home, but the guest house on your property?
After I saw a few episodes of her show I asked myself: Why living in a cattle ranch (in ranch in general) she always buys meat and eggs and veggies and actually EVERYTHING?! Kinda weird. Isn’t it?!
Then I started reading about her and her life. She has never worked a day in her entire life. She’s got maids to do all the work for her. I wouldn’t be surprise if she had somebody who writes that blog of hers for her. She grew up as a millionaire and got married to a millionaire. She is one of the bored and rich house wifes. The difference is she does not live in Orange County or Beverly Hills or Chicago on New York. She lives in Oklahoma in the middle of nowhere and she is just a bit more talented (smarter) and more bored than those house wifes of big cities of whom BravoTv is filled up with.
… and I got really tired of her fake tv show image of “simple rancher’s wife” living “simple life” in a “simple ranch”. ugh…
… and I’m quite disappointed by Food Network by having Ree on their website list of “chefs” among cooks like Alexandra Guarnaschellli, Boby Flay, Anne Burrell or Robert Irvine. Those people should be really offended.
… and Ree…. thanks for your recipe for “Egg in hole”. That’s the only thing that turned out useful from your show. My husband loves it.
