How Ree Drummond’s family feels about her fame

How does Drummond’s family feel about her celebrity status? Do they treat her differently now that she has her own show, cookbooks, and millions of adoring fans? Apparently, Drummond’s family isn’t affected by her fame. She told “Parade” magazine her sons only get excited about her celebrity status when someone famous follows her on Twitter. Overall, the family doesn’t care that much about her being a celebrity:

I’ve earned no cool points with my kids for being The Pioneer Woman. I think the only time one of my boys was really impressed was because someone famous, like an NFL player, followed me on Twitter. They thought that was the coolest thing ever. But other than that, they’re pretty unimpressed. And that’s actually the way I like it.
