Watching a movie is Drummond’s favorite way to spend Saturday night with her husband. She says their love of movies is what brought then together. One thing she thought was interesting is that Ladd pointed out her tendency to watch what she calls “cheatin’ movies.”

Drummond says she seems to be drawn to movies where infidelity is involved. However, Drummond makes it clear that this is just a coincidence. She says she doesn’t purposely look for movies where cheating is a theme.

The Accidental Country Girl adds that these types of movies draw her in because of the good acting and writing. The Age of Innocence starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Wynona Ryder, and Michelle Pfeiffer is one of her favorite movies in the “cheatin’ movies” category.

4. Ladd Drummond loves Dr Pepper

Drummond says her husband has almost no vices. According to her, he doesn’t take drugs, he doesn’t smoke, he rarely drinks beer, and he doesn’t drink coffee. However, one habit he does have is drinking Dr Pepper. She says he loves it so much it’s like his morning coffee.

5. Ree Drummond once only spoke ‘cat language’ during an entire party

Another interesting story Drummond shares in Frontier Follies is about the time she dressed up as a cat for a Halloween party when she was in college. She was so committed to being a cat that she would only speak in meows and purrs when someone tried to talk to her. She says some people thought she was weird, but that didn’t stop her from continuing with her act.

At one point, Drummond says she annoyed her roommate so much that she decided to leave the party without her. Her roommate couldn’t find her car keys, and when she asked Drummond if she had seen them, she responded by meowing and purring instead of using her words. So, her roommate decided to get a ride with an acquaintance. Drummond says their friendship didn’t last.
