Although Drummond is usually open and honest, there’s one part of her life she says she refuses to talk about. For her, this subject is completely off limits. Here’s the one thing The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond says she will never discuss.

Drummond says her readers feel like friends

If you read Ree Drummond’s blog, you’ll instantly feel the warmth and openness come through in her writing. It’s like she’s sitting across from you, talking about her day. Drummond says that’s the type of feeling she wants to create with The Pioneer Woman blog.

Drummond says she is so comfortable opening up about her personal life because her readers feel like friends to her. In a Forbes interview, the Food Network star spoke about how natural it felt to meet fans at a book signing after she released one of her cookbooks:

I feel like they are my friends, even though I know just how weird that sounds. The day I launched my cookbooks I was interviewed in Oklahoma at a book signing, and I felt like I was getting ready to meet 500 of my friends. That’s the way the Internet is now–people connect to the world around all the time and make up these communities.

She’s not shy about sharing things she and Ladd talk about

Fans agree Drummond’s blog is so welcoming because gives a peek into her daily life, even sharing what she talks about with her husband, Ladd (or “Marlboro Man,” as she likes to call him). Drummond said she and her husband discuss things such as her dreams, the Bible, and her favorite actors.

This is the topic Ree Drummond won’t talk about

Drummond doesn’t mind sharing some of the details of her life on her blog and television show. However, she does have a limit when it comes to certain topics. Drummond told Forbes she is not comfortable talking about sex. This is a topic she says she doesn’t even talk about with close friends.

The Pioneer Woman star is so shy about addressing the subject of intimacy that she refers to it as “hanky-panky.” Drummond had this to say in her Forbes interview: “I don’t write about hanky-panky, but I’m not the kind of girl to talk about it with my friends either. I’ve found a comfort level there of sharing. There’s a line that’s there, for sure, but for me it’s sort of innate and undefinable.”
