WEB NUGGETS: REBA'S WIERD FEAR....STRANGE LAWS
Reba McEntire is comfortable whether she's on stage singing to a crowd or on a set performing in front of a camera, but she admits that both situations have their challenges. When it comes to acting Reba says she doesn't have too much trouble memorizing her lines, especially if they're conversational, but she tells the San Angelo Standard-Times, "If it's a paragraph of something such as a philosophy, it's hard for me to memorize." And when it comes to singing there are a few things that make her nervous. "The only time I get really nervous is when I have new shoes, a new outfit, lines I don't know, a new song I haven't learned really well," says Reba. She explains new shoes and new outfits make her nervous because, "You don't know if the shoes are going to be comfortable or if they are going to be slick and go with the outfit. Is the zipper going to break? Am I comfortable in it?"
You can see Reba in her sitcom, "Malibu Country," Friday nights on ABC.

If Your Spouse Asks You How They Look....Lie
It's always nice when a survey confirms what we've always suspected. And this is one of those times:
According to a new survey by a coupon website, when your spouse asks you if they look good in an outfit . . . it's a TRAP.
Most people don't ask because they trust their partner's fashion sense . . . they want a confidence boost by hearing how good they look.
89% of people have asked their partner if they looked okay after getting dressed to go somewhere. But they don't REALLY want to know what their significant other thinks.
61% of people have an answer in mind when they ask the question . . . and they want their partner to tell them they look good . . . even if it's a LIE.
LATEST ON THE MINDY MCCREADY SAGA:
Mindy McCready opens up about the death of her boyfriend, producer/musician David Wilson, in a new interview with NBC's Andrea Canning of "Dateline."
Authorities said Wilson was found dead of a gunshot wound on Jan. 14 on the porch of the couple's home in Heber Springs, Ark. At the time, police said they responded to Wilson's home after receiving a report of a self-inflicted gunshot. The investigation, though, remains open, and murder hasn't been ruled out.
When Canning sat down with the country singer, she asked, "For the record, did you kill David? Did you shoot David?"
"Oh my God, no. Oh my God, no. He was my life," McCready, said. "We were each other's life."
When Canning asked if McCready, 38, was "100 percent" certain that Wilson had committed suicide and had not been murdered, McCready said, "I don't know."
Calling Wilson her "soul mate," McCready also detailed the moment during which she said she first found Wilson's body.
"I just started screaming, calling 911," she said. "I lay down next to him and just just pleaded with him not to die."
She also blasted reports that Wilson had been cheating on her.
"David was not having an affair with another woman," she said. "That is absolutely totally untrue."
Police, meanwhile, haven't named McCready, or anyone else, as a suspect in Wilson's death. Authorities are awaiting lab results in order to determine if Wilson's death was caused by a self-inflicted gunshot wound or murder.
McCready made headlines in 2011 in the wake of controversy surrounding custody over her son, 7-year-old Zander, whose father is country artist Bill McKnight.
McCready's debut album came out in 1996. She released her most recent studio album, "I'm Still Here," in 2010.
