‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Suffered a Wardrobe Malfunction Right Before Her Daughter’s Wedding

In 2020, Drummond posted photos of her daughter Paige wearing her wedding dress, writing, “I have a daughter who’s getting married… but it’s not this daughter! But that didn’t stop her from trying on my circa 1996 wedding dress this afternoon. (Alex tried it on, too, but I’m not posting that photo because we’re tryna keep the mystery over here.)”

She continued, “I don’t think the dress will work out for either of my girls, but I’ll save it for a granddaughter or goddaughter or maybe I’ll wear it when Ladd and I renew our vows, just kidding. I’ve watched enough Real Housewives to know that’s never a good idea. Paige, you look beautiful even though this was just for fun!”
