On a recent episode of her new podcast, Living & Learning with Reba McEntire, Reba revealed that she is dating CSI: Miami actor Rex Linn. The two initially had dinner together back in January, and have spent most of the pandemic getting to know each other from a distance.
Reba explained in the podcast:
“A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn and we’ve been talking during the pandemic. We had dinner with Rex in, what was it in, January? “Then February on, it was the COVID pandemic and we were talking, texting, facetime…. and that’s a really good way of getting to know people.”
“It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on, discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor and me being an actress. He’s very into my music. I’m very into his career. It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart and is interested in me too.”
Of course, McEntire was married to her former manager, Narvel Blackstock, for 26 years before their divorce in 2015.
In addition to his roles in Django Unchained, Nashville, Waco, Lethal Weapon, Better Call Saul, and of course his main role as Sgt. Frank Tripp in CSI: Miami, you probably remember him as Agent Whitney in the Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan film, Rush Hour.
