She had never thought that there will be the time she could fell in love again but the cupid had different plans for her.

In love again

Reba McEntire is a very happy woman these days. She not only managed to heal the painful heartbreak but she also made a room in her heart for someone else. The country legend actually surprised herself by how quickly her new romance has blossomed.

She said:

I was not looking. Not even interested.

When the singer met the retired oil geologist Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo in August 2017, she didn’t think it could turn into anything serious. At first, the two were just friends but then their relationship turned into something far more romantic.
