    Is that really Reba? She looks strange, pun not intended.

    I only have the Twain and most recent Reba album- love the Shania one, just kinda like the Reba one. Reba’s latest was a little too all over the place for me.

      Yes, that’s Reba. It is sort of an odd picture. Looks almost like a PeTA ad because she’s wearing a fur stole and it looks like the wall behind her is splattered with red paint.

    OMG! I actually really love this photo. A glamorous diva shot. Where did you find it, J.R.?

      That photo comes from a Vanity Fair photo shoot and article they did on Reba circa 2005. It was also shown on the big screen on the Giants special – right at the beginning I think.

      This is one of my favorite pictures of Reba too – she’s just gorgeous here. I just remembered it from the Vanity Fair piece, Michael. Glad you like it.

      I’ll add that one of the reasons I like this photo so much is that Reba looks like the mature woman she is and isn’t adorned with leather wristcuffs or vintage t-shirts. This style is a lot more becoming to her.

    Definitely, she’s got a great figure and this dress is much more flattering than the look you described (see Reba #1s and, even though I haven’t seen the photos, I’m guessing the new album too?). Leather wristcuffs. LOL. I’ll have to seek out the other photos and the interview from that shoot. Vanity Fair usually does a great job.

    Glad to see that she is number one. I’ve been excited about her album since I saw her interview on Soundcheck [] and listened to some snippets. I’ve yet to go pick it up though.

    Thanks for another fab article – I  enjoyed  it! its amazing what you can find with bing, by the way how do i subscribe to the rss feed?

    • Razor X March 5, 2010 at 11:28 pm

      I just added an RSS widget; it’s at the top of the screen on the left just below the title banner. I’m not sure if I set it up correctly, so if it doesn’t work for you, let us know and we’ll tinker with it some more.
