Only on News 9, Oklahoma’s own Reba McEntire addresses her recent split from her husband.

Country music icon Reba McEntire has spent nearly 40 years entertaining us all. So when I sat down with Reba in Nashville, we talked about her time on the ranch in small town Oklahoma to her latest album, which is number 27 of her career.

But recently her personal life was thrust into the spotlight as she and her husband of 26 years Narvel Blackstock announced their separation. That was back in August and we wanted to know how she's doing now.

"How are you doing?"

"I'm doing great. I've got my, my faith is strong. And I’ve got my friends, my family and Cullen Bohannon to help me out. So I watch him every night to help me out because I got all of the four seasons downloaded and I watch Cullen Bohannon,” Reba said.

"And he's helped you through this?"

“He’s helped me through this,” Reba said.

"How so?"  

“Well you just got to see him. He's really good lookin' he kind of diverts my attention,” Reba said.

Cullen is actually a character on a popular show on AMC. We have a lot more from Reba on the split and also what she's up to now and she plans to do next. The full interview will air on News 9 at 10 p.m. Thursday.
