Reba McEntire and Rex Linn Can Go From Glam to Hillbilly Just Like That [Pictures]
Reba McEntire and Rex Linn are two peas in a pod. They like to have fun — whether it's dressing to the nines for a red carpet, or dressing way down, redneck style, for an old-fashioned chili cookoff.
On social media, McEntire shared an all-too-real "Instagram vs Reality" moment. In one photo, we see the country legend and Mr. Linn dressed in their Sunday best for the 2022 Academy Awards. McEntire is dazzling in an emerald green sequined gown, while Linn looks dashing in a monochrome black suit ensemble.
But swipe right and you'll see a much different look. The country artist is wearing bedazzled overalls, a leopard print long-sleeved shirt, a lavender scarf, sneakers and a yellow trucker hat that reads "Hillbilly Chilly Cookoff." Her actor boyfriend is dressed like a chef — complete with black pants and a white shirt — boots, sunglasses and a giant red pepper hat on his head.
"Swipe right ➡️ to see what a difference a week makes. From red carpets to red peppers, we have fun either way!!!" McEntire writes in the caption.
When they say find you someone who can do it all, perhaps this is what they mean. Find a partner who cleans up nicely, but who is just as comfortable being silly with you. After all, Linn and McEntire's pet names for each other are Tater Tot and Ketchup.
The couple have been dating for about two years, though they have known each other for decades. They first met on the set of Kenny Rogers' film The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw in 1991. Over the years, they have remained friends, talking and texting occasionally, but it wasn't until a dinner in early 2020 that a romance began to blossom.
