McEntire: Modeling & Movies
Singer Reba McEntire is slated to model both evening and casual attire as part of designer Anne Klein's Significant Women advertising campaign. The print ad, which also features actress Bebe Neuwirth, former Texas Governor Ann Richards, novelist Siri Hustvedt and others, will appear as a 32-page insert in several popular magazines this fall. PLUS! McEntire was the featured performer at the recent A Day On The Courts, An Evening At The Net benefit in Los Angeles. The event is a tennis tournament pitting professional tennis players such as Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras against celebrity players like Billy Crystal and Robin Williams. The annual affair raises money for United Friends of the Children and UFC Bridges, both programs that benefit the more than 73,000 children under the care of Los Angeles' department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). To kick off the evening, McEntire performed "What If," a song appropriate to the "go-the-extra-mile" message of the evening. PLUS! McEntire Movie To Air -- The long-awaited air date for McEntire's next movie has finally been set. The made-for-television movie Forever Love is slated to air on CBS on September 27th. McEntire's forthcoming new video will be for the song of the same title. In the movie, McEntire plays Lizzie Brooks, a young mom who falls into a coma in the late 70s, and awakens some 20 years later to find her whole life has changed. Her young daughter is now a young woman about to be married, and her husband has gone through his own changes.
