Shania Twain Coming Out Of Dark Times

Shania Twain's reality show on Oprah's new cable network is just what she needs to heal from her heartache!

"I feel like in a way I'm starting over, with everything," said the country star. "This is a very personal experience that I think is important to share. This is an experience of recovery. I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it. I had to force myself back out into life, back out into experiencing things."

After the break-up of her 14-year marriage where he cheated with her best friend, Shania said that for a long time she wasn't passionate about anything.

"There were moments when I really just thought, I don't need anything and I don't need anyone," she said. "I just want to go away and disappear. So, that was a bad slump."

But even the title of the show, Why Not? With Shania Twain, shows how she emerged from her despair.

"One day, someone said to me, 'Do you want to go jump out of an airplane?' " she added. "I felt like I had nothing to lose anymore, so I said, 'Why not?' And every day since then, I ask myself that question."

Shania is getting back on track, but she's not completely healed. She's now dating her best friend's ex husband and has an 8-year-old son to raise.

"There's a lot of recovery to accomplish," she continued. "I'm not there yet. I'm on my way there. I'm not sure I'll ever be there."

Stay strong, bb.

  1. 1

    …because dating your best friend's ex-husband is going to fix a lot.



  2. 2

    Dating her
    best friend's
    ex ??
    Nice friend. pfft.



  3. 3

    She dating her best friends ex husband? that's a little weird.



  4. 4

    Ill comfort her,she'll heal in no time.



  5. 5

    Love her!



  6. 6

    So, the best friends are dating each other's former husbands? Hmmmm….whatever floats your boat, I guess. Hope the kid isn't too confused.



  7. 7

    So basically they all just swapped partners?



  8. 8

    her life sounds like one of those romantic inspirational novels



  9. 9

    Good Canadian MILF!



  10. 10

    After so much silence and her having become so reclusive its good to hear from her!
    Sorry that she had to go through this but many people out there have gone through a very tough break up including myself. It would have been a lot easier for me to go through it with a nice fat bank account to back me up but that wasn't the case at all.
    She lost her parents in a tragedy and then had to deal with divorce but she has had lots of success in her career. You just can't have everything in life.
    It'll be interesting to watch this show and she's the last person who I would have thought to come out with a reality show. When is her new album coming out and shouldn't she be concentrating on that more?



  11. 11

    GOD people soooo damn negative, is all you got from that was that she was dating her best friends ex husband? that "best friend" who ruined her marriage? come on, she's still a human being and I LOVE HER!!!!! my heart is with you shania!



  12. 12

    kind of screwed up the "best friend" cheated and ran off with Shania's husband, and now Shania is dating the "best friend's" ex hubby! All a bit twisted, no? Maybe it's a different ex hubby, who knows. But that sounds messed. So the two who got cheated on and dumped are now an item.



  13. 13

    Re: iknowitall84 – Exactly!!! Sounds like she's got a lot of therapy in order and needs to look at serious co-dependency! Sheeeeeeeeeeehs!



  14. 14

    Re: Beach Bum – That would be the "best friend" who stole Shania's husband, so I'd say her ex is fair game. They probably have a lot in common too since their exes cheated with each other. Weird situation.



  15. 15

    SHE'S FUCKING BOOOOORRRRING!!!! WHO WANTS TO WATCH THAT HOT ASS MESS. MUSIC CAREER IS OVA!!!!!!



  16. 16

    so wait, her husband cheats on her with her best friend so then she starts dating that friend's ex husband. that's a reality tv show in it of itself!



  17. 17

    Although to be fair "swapping" ex's is a lot more common then one might think. I know when my ex wife started dating a a new guy I ended up banging his ex wife a few times.



  18. 18

    mmmmm MILF side boobies….



  19. 19

    She's always been too good for him anyway.



  20. 20

    Love this babe! A total MILF.



  21. 21

    Good for her. now, i hope she sticks to good ol grass roots country and not all that sugar coated bullshit



  22. 22

    classy!!!
    *
    p.s. get a bra with all that money………..or get em lifted…….

    She's still a fox but is possibly the most boring, uninspired singer ever.

  24. 24

    Ya know, I always saw Shania as a gorgeous woman who couldn't carry a tune and got a record deal out of her record-producing husband. Not a good opinion to have! And then, I saw her on American Idol as the guest judge, and I have to say…. it didn't help my opinion of her at all! I think she is one out of line, stuck up bitch! sorry…. and Why not just find someone new? Someone who hasn't been in your stupid little love square? Pathetic.



  25. 25

    oh yes, almost forgot - her boobs are cherry

    Wait…Cheated with her best friend….Now dating her other best friend's ex husband? Wow, she is an awesome person. Sounds very loyal to her family and friends.



  28. 28

    Nice Boobies!
    Nice Boobies!
    Nice Boobies!



  29. 29

    Maybe Sandra Bullock should get together with her. Have a little grl talk.



  30. 30

    she has issues…



  31. 31

    I love Shania and I am hopeful that her life will get better and that she can re-build the happiness she once had with her new man and her son.

    She's had a lot of tough times in her life but she's also been very strong through out them all and I have no doubt she will return to the music scene as the same Shania that the world loves and misses!

    Can't wait for her show…it's going to be great!



  32. 32

    DATING her best friend's exhusband?????

  33. Heh says – reply to this

    GOOD FOR HER.. Her nasty ass X was boinking her best friend. SO why NOT date HER ex.. It wont last but hell they both need each other at this time. Im glad she is coming to TV.. I will watch the show for sure. I have always like Shania.



  37. 37

    How old is this woman? Tell her to cover up! She's 45!!! Tell her to dress up her age!!! (Usually this goes on MC's picture… yet I still have to find anyone to state it on a different artist who wears bare minimum material that they call 'dress') This site is full of hypocrites bitches.



  38. 38

    LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL HER BOOBS ARE. I COULD JUST CRAWL IN THERE AND START SUCKING!!!



  39. 39

    Love her! she is so smart and GORGEOUS!! her ugly ass "MUTT" literally of a husband is a complete loser!!! stay strong girl!!!



  40. 40

    Too bad we will not see it here in Switzerland - remember Shania - UP UP UP, you only go UP - your song saved me so many times!

    And please come back one day for a concert - we miss you!



  41. 41

    god look at those beautiful friggin tits



  42. 42

    Shania is amazing! Atleast Mutt helped with her career now he can buzz right off. Go Shania. We LOVE you!

    Her Boobs look great.Would like to pull them out of her dress and suck on them.



  44. 44

    Hmmm - wonder if there was a bit of swinging action going on with them, and Mutt preferred her bestie to her…seems a bit too convenient to hook up with her best friend's ex right after she steals your husband.

    They've been together for quite awhile though - at least a couple of years, so maybe it's working for them.



  45. 45

    Shania's a huge cheater herself. She got her start in her career thanks to some older MARRIED man who gave her a TON of money and connections. She carried on with him shamelessly in front of his wife. And when she got all she could out of him, she dumped him and left him to his wife (who didn't end up divorcing him). Mutt Lange basically MADE her career b/c he wanted her…not b/c she had any talent. She married him to seal the career deal and barely gave him any sex b/c she wasn't at all into him. WHILE MARRIED to Mutt Lange, she visited her hometown friends in Canada and had an affair with some woman's husband who was ready to leave his wife for her. But she dumped him and went back to Mutt b/c she realized she didn't want to "give up her life". It was in the papers here in Canada. This woman deserves no pity. She's an empty shell of a person who has constantly used pepole for her own personal gain. Good for Mutt that he found someone who loves him….too bad about the woman's husband though. But I'm betting that Shania was screwing the husband before Mutt left her. There's more to this story than meets the eye. Shania is a HUGE USER.

    OMG, I didn't know shania was a serial cheater.
    Picking up you best friend's ex-husband is not moving on with you life. Shania is seeking revenge. She will die an old evil bitch. She should have gotten another man and not some one's husband that's not in the triangle.



  47. 47

    That piece of skin under her arm - pulled by the weight of the implant. Gag.



  48. 48

    As my grandma once said,"It will keep on hurting until it stops." Anyone who has been hurt knows what this means.



  49. 49

    Chin up girl you can do it.



  50. 50

    She sounds unintelligent and uninteresting. She has "nothing to else to lose" oh really, what about your CHILD if that doesn't make you interested in getting on with your life nothing else will. Is she really still that devastated by her husbands cheating? Wow. Remember when she lied about being an American Indian? She is an odd one for sure. Not very talented as a singer either, all she had going for her was her looks and the promotion of her former husband, good luck with the reality show.



  51. 51

    Re: Frau Bullock - Nazi fucker
    Do you have proof that she came here and cheated with someone else while she married? It was in the papers? If you do then post it otherwise STFU…. Shania is an amazing talented person and until you have proof your word is shit!



  52. 52

    Wow everyone here that has said negative shit about her is clearly JUST JEALOUS of her, her monery and her talent. She has sold more albums and made more money because of her incredible talent and her stunning looks. You are all just jealous! All the odds were stacked against her when she started out and clearly she deserved all her success! So stop being so negative and go meditate once in a while. I met her twice and althoguh she seemed very conservative she was very nice and she does a lot of great things for kids charities. How many of you can say that??? Bitches! Your all angry for no reason. She's super hot and has the body to wear whatever the fuck she wants and make you all look like fat losers!

    Re: rudemood
    Hey jerkface, get your facts straight!!! First of all in Canada, where she is from, we don't say "Indian", that's insulting. It is native, aboriginal, or indigenous. Secondly, she didn't lie moron. Her biological father abandoned her when she was a kid. She was raised by a very loving stepfather and her mother. Her stepfather and his family ARE Native Canadian. Her parents (mother and stepfather) died tragically. She always identified with her stepfather's family and used the stage name Shania as a way to honour them. She NEVER said she was Native.

    She's a tough, driven lady who had more heartache and pain in her childhood than most of you could ever imagine. Get over yourselves. I'm sure she and the "best friend's" ex husband bonded over the pain of both being cheated on. Misery loves company. She's a kind woman, who is very dedicated to charity and helping people. I wish her all the best. Love, the peoples of Canada.

    Mutt was aptly named.



  55. 55

    I was with her up until the ex best friends husband thing. In my day this was called wife swapping.



  56. 56

    well I hope she feels better soon. but she's still the least talented "singer" ever forced down our throats
