Blooper Resurfaces Showing Reba Struggling To Say “Ice”
Late Night With Seth Myers / YouTube
While promoting the season premiere of her show Big Sky, Reba McEntire stopped by Late Night with Seth Myers to catch up with Seth and talk all things Big Sky, her cameo in Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar, and much more!
During their nearly eight-minute sit-down, Seth brought up the fact that it is the 45th anniversary since the first time she sang on the Grand Ole Opry stage. Reba then told Seth that her whole family piled in the car and drove six or seven hundred miles. They’d gone to the Opry several times over the years for vacation, but obviously this visit was a little different!
Her dad drove to the back to drop her off at the Artist Entrance, but security didn’t have her on the list. They went across the street so Reba could call her agent, who assured her that she was on the bill for that night. The McEntire clan went back to the Opry Entrance and lo and behold, her name was in fact on the list!
She was slated to perform two songs, but after she was all dressed and ready to go, she was told that they were going to have to take away one of her songs. Reba asked the OPry why and they said, “Well, Dolly Parton just pulled in the parking lot and we’re gonna give her one of your songs.
Reba recalled, “I said, ‘Shoot! She can have both of ’em, can I meet her?!”
Something else the two talked about was the country singer’s beloved sitcom, Reba, which ran from 2001-2007.
Seth revealed he had a blooper that was hilarious that he needed everyone to see. Reba’s character was on the stand in a courtroom, trying to say, “He was chewing ice,” but because of her very thick country accent, the word “ice” sounded a whole lot like “ass!”
She told Seth, “Even on my phone when I dictate a message it does that! I say ‘ice tea’ and it goes ‘ass tea.'”
He told her to never do voice orders for Amazon because we don’t need to find out what “ass tea” is! Seth then showed a clip and the actor playing the judge, the late James Avery, was cracking up, and so were we!
“Even the judge thought that was funny!” Reba laughed. Watch the hilarious clip below.
