Is Ree Drummond Launching a Beauty Empire?
The Pionner Woman settles the Facebook rumor.
We love Ree Drummond for many, many reasons: Her adoration for her kids (and sweet dogs!), her sense of humor, and her Food Network show, The Pioneer Woman, of course.
But Drummond fans may have been alarmed recently when they heard she was calling it quits with the TV show and leaping into the realm of beauty products. On her blog this weekend, Drummond set the record straight: "There is a wacky rumor circulating around Facebook that I have decided to quit my Food Network show and devote my life to selling facial cream. The source of the rumor is an unscrupulous company trying to trick people into buying (you guessed it) facial cream," she writes. "I have nothing to do with this facial cream (please don’t buy it!), and more importantly: I am not quitting my Food Network show! On the contrary: I’m just getting warmed up, man! The past seven years have just been one gigantic dress rehearsal!"

"You want recipes, cookbooks, pretty plates, pans, and Basset Hound cookie jars? Head my way!" she jokes, adding, "You want facial cream? Head to Walmart, Ulta, Sephora, or a department store. Don’t head to Pioneer Woman. I get my facial cream at Walmart, Ulta, Sephora, and department stores! (Which is to say I rotate a lot. I think it’s healthier for the skin. Hey, maybe I should sell facial cream! Just kidding.)"
Ah, our relief is palpable. Here's to looking forward to a new episode of The Pioneer Woman on the Food Network every Saturday through the end of the year — well, with the exception of Thanksgiving, when you'll be busy following her cooking advice, anyway, right?
