What is Ree Drummond’s net worth?
Ree Drummond is an American media personality, blogger, and celebrity chef who has a net worth of $50 million. Ree is unquestionably much wealthier through her husband’s family.
One of the largest land-owning families in America is the one from which Ree’s husband Ladd Drummond hails. According to a list of US landowners, the Drummond family is ranked as the 23rd largest. In the US, the Drummond family is the landowner of more than 400,000 acres.
Outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, she, her husband, and their four kids maintain a working ranch as their home. On the Food Network since 2011, her program, “The Pioneer Woman,” has been broadcast.
William “Bill” Smith, an orthopedic physician, and his wife Gerre Schwert Smith welcomed Ann Marie “Ree” Smith into the world on January 6, 1969, in Oklahoma.
Ree was raised in the Oklahoman town of Bartlesville along with her two brothers, Doug and Mike, and sister, Betsy. The community, which is about 50 miles north of Tulsa and not far from the Kansas border, is largely recognized as an oil town.
In 1987, she received her high school diploma from Bartlesville. She registered at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
She belonged to the Pi Beta Phi sorority throughout college. She earned a gerontology bachelor’s degree in 1991.
With the intention of moving in with her ex-boyfriend and attending law school in Chicago, she returned home for the summer.
When she ran upon Ladd Drummond one evening in a bar, that idea was abandoned.
‘The Pioneer Woman.
The Pioneer Woman
In 2006, Ree Drummond started a blog where she discussed homeschooling, shared recipes, and provided step-by-step directions and pictures for every step.
Her blog, now known as The Pioneer Woman (it was previously called Confessions of a Pioneer Woman), has since gone on to earn numerous accolades, including first place at the Weblog Awards.
Also recognized as the top weblog of 2010, the blog. In addition, she established “TastyKitchen.com,” a well-known recipe website.
Having written 15 books to date, she is a prolific author, known for her bestsellers such as “From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels,” a memoir detailing her journey from Los Angeles to a rural ranch in Oklahoma, which reached the second spot on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Although there were discussions about turning it into a movie with Reese Witherspoon as Ree, that project never came to fruition.
In addition to her memoir, she has also authored other popular books including “The Pioneer Woman Cooks Food from My Frontier,” “The Pioneer Woman Cooks A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations,” as well as children’s books like “Charlie and the Christmas Kitty” and “Charlie and the New Baby.”
The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and BusinessWeek have all cited Ree’s blog. She was recognized as one of the “25 Best Blogs” in the world in 2009 by Time Magazine for her blog Confessions of a Pioneer Woman.
In 2010, Ree made her debut on television by challenging celebrity chef Bobby Flay to a Thanksgiving cook-off on an episode of Throwdown! Flay traveled to Ree’s Oklahoma ranch for the event, which was broadcasted on the Food Network in November of that year.
Ree emerged as the winner in a close competition against Flay. The following year, in 2011, Ree’s cooking show “The Pioneer Woman” premiered on the Food Network.
