There are unconfirmed reports that the building will house a gift shop (think PW cookware, trinkets and souvenirs), eatery and a bus depot for ranch tours. The Marlboro Woman site is pretty up to date on the goings on at the ranch.  Many of the locals who are, shall we say non-plussed by the fake Pioneer Woman, share juicy details with MW.

I just can't hate on PW. Yes, I'm a WK. Her recipes aren't the most healthy, but she makes no claims on being a "healthy blog!" I don't know…guess there's plenty to snark on about her, but I just can't! I've drunk the PW kool-aid!

 

Ugh. I know she doesn't make claims of being a healthy blog, but her recipes are like Paula Deen levels of artery clogging. If you can even call them recipes. I submit into evidence this shitshow (if you don't want to give her clicks, this is literally a loaf of French bread cut in half with TWO f**kING STICKS OF BUTTER on it, broiled) and this (Club crackers sprinkled with shelf stable parmesan and wrapped in bacon. Yes. Bacon wrapped crackers – GENIUS!). 

And then there's the folksy one line at a time writing!

Because that helps the common folk to understand me better!

I'm just like you!

Only richer.

I watched one of her cooking eps in YouTube she was making Mac and cheese and I just couldn't stand her. She is painful to watch!

I agree she does not translate well to TV. Her husband, on the other hand… [Image Can Not Be Found]

My cholesterol shot up just reading that.

Unrelated: Marlboro Man sounds like Billy Bob Thornton.

Tasty way to die, though.

OMG that emoticon!!  Hahaha.

Personally, I think her husband is gross and comes across as a jerk – but I liked the PW blog much more before I saw Ree on her show…  Or, I should say I liked Ree's personality in writing before I saw her on TV.  (The blog has always been a "meh" for me.)  She is very irksome live for some reason…  Her voice is like nails on a chalkboard, and she seems very awkward/unnatural on camera.

My husband and I were just talking about this. She seems very…Stepford-like, maybe? We just watched the episode where her mom and sister are helping her make dinner, and she is completely unnatural the whole time. It's like she's in the kitchen with strangers!

I read a story on one of the sites devoted to PW about a homeschool blogger that essentially stopped working with PW because the guest blogger was getting hate phone calls to her home and it took Ree too long to intervene on the blog.  

http://www.thepioneerwomansux.com/2011/03/mrs-gs-post/

If you do not want to go to it, here's a summary: the topic the guest blogger wrote about was teaching religion to her high school daughter.  Although a lot of details were left out (she had an agreement with Ree), this woman was atheist and understood most of PW readers that homeschool do it for religious purposes (hence the hate mail and phone calls).  But PW would not allow her to acknowledge in her post that she recognized most of the readers home-schooled for religious purposes, thereby allowing readers to think she was actively trying to reach out to the demographic of right-wing religious conservatives.  

Anyway, it got me thinking:  Does PW homeschool for religious purposes but won't acknowledge it to keep it neutral for those who are not home-schooling for religious purposes OR is she home-schooling for other purposes but does not want to let her readers know so that the right-wing religious conservatives keep coming back to her?

She said once in the past that the main reason they home schooled is the commute time to the nearest school. Her post about deciding to start homeschooling is here:

http://thepioneerwoman.com/homeschooling/2010/03/why-i-homeschool-and-what-my-approach-is/

Marlboro Man and I decided to start homeschooling our kids seven years ago. Our oldest child had just completed her first full year of kindergarten, and we were already exhausted from the transportation challenges we’d had to endure that year. The school bus willingly picked her up, yes. But it showed up at our house twenty miles in the country at 6:45 a.m”¦and brought her home at 4:30 in the afternoon, her snoozing, sweaty face plastered against the bus window. Something about my five-year-old spending upwards of three hours on a school bus each day didn’t seem quite”¦right to me, but the alternative was for me to load up all my rugrat punks in the car and make two round trips to town each day. And something about me spending that amount of time in the car didn’t exactly make my skirt fly up either.

I know lots of people who home school for non-religious reasons and I personally have no problem with it. Her kids seem pretty intelligent, well adjusted, and well-socialized.

I have always taken her blog as entertainment.  There are quite a few large cattle ranches in that area although most are not quite as large.  It has taken them several generations to amass what they own and they do run it themselves (with tons o' help).  Having that much money and land doesn't bother me and she markets herself well.  I use many of her recipes at holidays although not day to day because I prefer my clothes to fit.

I guess they should have built their house closer to the edge of their property.lol
