Ree and Ladd take their friendships very seriously. In an Instagram post, Ree wrote about the strong friendship she has with Hyacinth, the first friend she made in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Here’s what Ree wrote about their special bond:

Hyacinth was my first friend in Pawhuska, when I was newly married (and newly pregnant, thanks to my honeymoon). In a way, our friendship was preordained, seeing that our husbands’ parents, grandparents, and great grandparents had been friends before us. Hy and I clung together quickly, and as our daughters (and later, sons) became close friends, she and I would marvel that none of us had to like each other, but our hearts just gravitated that way.

Hyacinth is one of the closest and most treasured friendships in my life, and I love her children like my own. Her daughter Meg is getting married in a week, and Alex (maid of honor!) and I threw her a party a couple of weekends ago. The first and last photos sum it all up. Love these women. (Stephen, you’re great, too. Ha!)

Ree Drummond’s fans went crazy over Ladd’s best friend, Bill

When Ree posted a picture of Ladd’s best friend, Bill, her Instagram followers went crazy. Many commented on how handsome Bill is. Other Pioneer Woman fans made a point to mention their marital status and let Bill know they’re single and ready to mingle. Many couldn’t believe Bill isn’t married yet. “Bill is single???? Boy is he handsome!!!!” wrote one excited follower. “Wait. Not married? How did I miss this cute guy?? I lived in Chicago for a long time and thought I dated every single guy in that city,” said another person. Here’s what Ree posted about Ladd and Bill’s friendship:

Bill and Ladd, Ladd and Bill. Friends from college, great friends still. Ladd is married, Bill not so. Ladd lives here, Bill Chicago. Still, when things in life go down—good or bad—Bill comes to town. To celebrate, to laugh, to mourn. Their bond is strong; it can’t be torn. Bill shows, and I see with my eyes how much that trait can mean to guys. Words don’t count like actions do. And one more thing I know is true? I’m grateful Bill is in Ladd’s life. Signed, that handsome cowboy’s wife. (Special shout out to Tony, not pictured…ditto the above!)

Ree Drummond’s fans want a date with Ladd’s best friend

Ree’s fans didn’t hesitate to shoot their shot. Messages to Bill came pouring in after Ree’s heartfelt Instagram post. “Love the rhyme, Ree! And the friendship. And to Bill–I’m single too!!” Bill even got a nickname amid all the excitement. “Hey there, silver fox!” wrote one fan.

Some of Ree’s followers were so smitten they forgot they were already married: “I’ll marry him! Oh wait… apparently, I’m already married,” joked another fan. Bill is causing such a frenzy, we wouldn’t be surprised if Ree’s fans start a petition for Bill to have his own Food Network show.
