Drummond took time out to explain on The Pioneer Woman blog that the rumor involved a business she had nothing to do with. “There is a wacky rumor circulating around Facebook that I have decided to quit my Food Network show and devote my life to selling facial cream,” wrote Drummond. “The source of the rumor is an unscrupulous company trying to trick people into buying (you guessed it) facial cream. I have nothing to do with this facial cream (please don’t buy it!), and more importantly: I am not quitting my Food Network show! On the contrary: I’m just getting warmed up, man! The past seven years have just been one gigantic dress rehearsal!”

Drummond made it clear she did not have any intentions of starting a cosmetics line. “You want facial cream? Head to Walmart, Ulta, Sephora, or a department store. Don’t head to Pioneer Woman,” she said on her blog.
