‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Poses in Rare Picture with Her Sister

by Leanne Stahulak

“Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond spent some quality time with her sister this past weekend, per her most recent Instagram post.

The cooking phenomenon posted a sweet pic with her sister Betsy last night. The two look almost identical, both in black tops, sunglasses, bright orange earrings, and similar lipstick. Even their smiles look the same, which is no surprise for sisters. The only difference is Ree’s fiery red hair and Betsy’s chocolatey brown locks.

“What would I do without my sister? Don’t know, don’t want to know,” the “Pioneer Woman” captioned the post, along with a little heart emoji.

We know Ree Drummond’s been busy lately, between the new Food Network movie she’s filming, creating recipes, and seeing her kids off to school. So, it’s nice that she was able to squeeze in some time to see her sister.

According to Betsy’s Instagram account, the “Pioneer Woman” also saw her sister earlier this summer in Vail, Colorado. The two took a trip just for them (separate from the one Ree took with her husband Ladd). Betsy shared a photo of Ree sitting across a restaurant table from her, looking cute as ever.

“It’s not very often that we get to spend a few uninterrupted days together just hanging, laughing, walking, talking, eating, drinking, shopping, etc,” Betsy shared in a moving caption. “But man, it’s such a gift when we do.”

She continued, “I don’t even have the words for what an amazing sister she is. No matter how busy things get and how much exciting stuff she’s got going on, not one iota of our fun energy together has ever changed. —I’m not gonna cry! Love ya, Ree. Thanks for the best time ever in the mountains doing a whole lotta nothin.”

‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Gives Marriage Advice to Her Kids

The “Pioneer Woman” released a book of essays called, “Frontier Follies: Adventures in Marriage and Motherhood in the Middle of Nowhere” earlier, in November 2020. When the book came out, she also did a Q&A with fans to promote the book and the lifestyle content it contained.

One fan eventually asked Ree Drummond, “What’s the biggest piece of marriage advice you have for your kids?” 

“In marriage, you often hear that it’s 50/50, you have to meet each other halfway. But I found through the years that it actually needs to be 100/100,” Ree replied. “If you approach it as 100/100, you’ll fill in the gaps during those times that your partner isn’t capable of giving their all, or they’re tired, or they’re sick, or they’re overloaded—and those things happen to married couples everywhere. That could be a very antiquated marital concept, but I’m 51. I’m a little antiquated myself.”

Ree’s advice must be solid, considering she and Ladd have been happily married for 25 years or so.
