Did Reba McEntire win a hot dog eating contest? Does she have an aversion to eggplant parmigiana? Did she give up a role in the 1995 blockbuster Titanic?
The answers to those questions are: No, she didn’t down a ridiculous number hotdogs. Yes, she dislikes eggplant parm. And yes, she gave up the role of Molly Brown in Titanic.
Reba had accepted the role and blocked out three months for filming on her calendar. But when the production schedule changed, she had to make a hard decision.
Last night (Thursday) on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, she said, “We were on tour and I had a lot of people on the payroll and we had these three months to do the movie. And then they got behind on scheduling and said, ‘No, we’re going to have to move it in this time.’ So we couldn’t reschedule all the arenas and everything.”
The role went to Kathy Bates.
