Holy Shit Ya’ll!

Pie Near Woman got mentioned in the New Yorker Magazine!


I am DYING!!!

I Die!

I Die!

I am DEAD!

But at least I died happily!

A six page spread about Ree Drummond appears in the current issue of The New Yorker Magazine. It goes on and on and on and on about Ree and her boring blog and yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah…


Like a golden orb wallowing through the mist… shattering the mind numbing inanity of a mild mannered reporter’s attempt (and failure) to make The Pioneer Woman compelling enough reading to justify taking up room in one of America’s most prominent cultural/literary magazines.


As her success has grown, the Pioneer Woman has become the subject of caricature and satire. Web sites (The Pioneer Woman Sux) and even a fictional Twitter feed (The Pie Near Woman) have sprung up to parody and critique her, some in poisonous and obsessive ways. Her detractors jeer at her self deprecation, lampoon her repetitiveness and psychoanalyze her posts for signs of darkness repressed.

Unfortunately, you can’t read the ‘long version’ of this article unless you are a New Yorker subscriber. But here is the link, to the ‘short version’ , which doesn’t mention Pie Near (so why bother?).   Jezebel referenced the article too.


And one more thing!

Pie Near Woman has her own blog now.

She was just getting too big for her britches around here.

Go visit her!

She is so isolated and alone!

And the internet is her only friend!


The first chapter of her romance novel, which I think is going to be called ‘black pumps to rotting stumps’ is ready for your enjoyment as well as a few more insightful articles that will totally change your life.

Off to comment all the hell over Jezebel and the New Yorker!



Way to get ‘em back Mr. President! More! More! MORE!!!!!
