one of the best selling...[edit]

no citation needed. it's common sense. She's sold 60 million records, Dolly has sold 50. I'm sure no one would debate for a country artist that is huge. How much has Shania sold? about 50-60.

→I believe a reliable source is needed as citation. If she really is one of the best selling, someone must have put her in a reliable list! Larsenbagvendt (talk) 13:58, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

No mention of the TV sitcom?[edit]

There's no mention of the TV sitcom Reba stars/starred in. - Ageekgal (talk) 22:09, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Yes there is under the section 2001-2002: Success in other media. --Caldorwards4 (talk) 22:51, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Date of birth[edit]

Her IMDB page says she was born in 1955, so please don't change teh DoB unless you have a reliable source stating otherwise.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Falcon8765 (talkcontribs) Revision as of 01:54, 27 August 2009

  • 2 sources for full birth date.- sinneed (talk) 21:20, 28 August 2009 (UTC)


Hey readers and users. Just wanted to let you all know that I rewrote the entire article with better references and now it looks way better. Let me know what all of you think. =) Dottiewest1fan (talk) 20:27, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposed edit about Reba dating married men[edit]

Here anon editor attempts to add a number of bits cited to wordpress blog, angelfire anonymous self-published page. There may be valid content here, but it is all done as one large edit. The wp:BLP-breaking bits MUST have more than one wp:RS or a very STRONG single one. wp:BLP is an exception to wp:3rr, and the content is going to stay out unless there is consensus against me. If restored again I will remove it again. If needed, I will eventually take it to the Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard, or if one of the anon editors thinks I am abusing them, they may choose to do so now. I don't think that will go well for them, though. Also, wp:NOT a tabloid. - sinneed (talk) 20:01, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Reba dating married men isnt an idea. It is fact. Im trying to look throught microfilm from the 80s but it is prooving difficult. But it FACT that Charlie with kids when Reba dated him. It is FACT that Narvel was married with kids when Reba dates him as well.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:07, 8 September 2009

  • Wikipedia cannot assess truth or falsehood. WP can only assess whether content is based on generally wp:reliable sources and in compliance with Wikipedia rules. Blogs and self-published sites will not generally meet that requirement for controversial content about living persons. I must point out that if digging in 1980's microfilm is needed for a source, that source is unlikley to meet wp:Verifiability for this content.- sinneed (talk) 21:18, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Anon addition conflicting with Billboard[edit]

An anon editor appears to be taking an Examiner /x-15710-Sacramento-Country-Music-Examiner~y2009m12d22-Reba-earns-34th-No-1-with-Consider-Me-Gone blog post to heart, and hammering "Consider Me Gone" into the number 1 country slot. However, it appears to remain in #2 slot. - Sinneed 22:51, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

It has reached the #1 slot as you can see from your own link. Conflict resolved. Dottiewest1fan (talk) 17:46, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Reverted edit[edit]

I reverted this edit [1] as explained. In particular the cited source claims 1975, not 1976, and I checkted it on Google Books. If there is a reliable secondary source supporting 1976, it should be added to the article or mentioned here then we can work out how to handle the conflicting sources. While I have no doubt she has some involvement with charity work, the only mention I could find of anything related in this article is a charity single. If she isn't particularly notable for her charity work, I don't think we need to say her occupation is a philantrophist. Similarly I couldn't find any mention of her being a fashion designer in the article. 'Author' is perhaps the only one with some mild justification, as the article does list two books she wrote, however as there's no discussion of these books and she doesn't seem particularly notable for them, it's IMHO unnecessary (although I won't object if someone adds it back). Nil Einne (talk) 12:50, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

You have forgotten to mention a charity that she says is close to her that is Habitat for Humanity link to confirm authenticity is here

No article for All The Women I Am?[edit]

There was no article for this album, which is strange because it is coming out in a matter of days, there has already been a single and the album art has been revealed. I have done the best I could with my lacking editing skills but it would be great if an experienced editor could go over it and fix it up properly.

This woman is over fifty years old, and is STILL one of the most sexy women in country music. Why is there not section of this article about her sex appeal? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:17, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

lol.... I agree. Seriously. ;) --Pschannes (talk) 08:52, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
