The Halloween prank that almost made Reba “fire” her boyfriend, and Matthew Ramsey’s haunted cabin


Reba McEntire‘s boyfriend, actor Rex Linn, may be her Young Sheldon co-star who plays the high school principal, but he’s also a huge cut-up who’s an enormous fan of Halloween.

“Last year, he ordered from Costco a seven foot werewolf, [with] a motion sensor in it, and he put it in my bathroom,” Reba recalls. “And then when I walked in there, it moved and growled at me and I was very upset.”

“I said, ‘Everybody who had anything to do with it, you’re all fired!'” she jokes. “Then I started giggling. Then I was pretty flattered that he’d went to all that trouble to scare me.”

“Then we took it to every place we could to scare everybody else,” she adds. “We had a blast with it.”

Old Dominion‘s Matthew Ramsey takes things even further for Halloween, though it was something of an accident.

“This happened probably four years ago, when I couldn’t take my kids on a fall break vacation,” OD’s lead singer explains. “So I took them to Home Depot and bought every Halloween decoration that I could possibly find, and we tricked out the woods… like a haunted woods. And so I set a tradition that I didn’t mean to set.”

“Now I spend about $1000 a year on new Halloween decorations,” Matthew continues. “And I don’t have the woods anymore because we moved, but now I told them… we have a little cabin — that I would make a whole haunted cabin for Halloween.”

“It’s like a whole art project,” he confesses. “I spend three days on decking out this whole house.”
