Country music star Reba McEntire recently went public with her new romance with Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo, 68. And now, in an exclusive new interview with Closer Weekly, Melissa Peterman, the singer's former Reba co-star, shares her thoughts on the relationship.

"I see her completely at ease with him," Melissa tells Closer. "He adores her wholeheartedly, which is what we all want, right?"

Reba, 63, was still recovering from her 2015 divorce from her husband of 26 years, Narvel Blackstock, 61, when she met Skeeter while on vacation in Jackson Hole, WY in 2017.

Skeeter, who is a retired oil executive, was less familiar with Reba's celebrity lifestyle but he doesn't appear fazed by her glittery life. "I don’t think it even causes a stir," Melissa tells Closer. "He's a confident guy. And when you're hanging with the crazy crew that Reba has, you gotta be a good sport and be able to roll, and he totally does!"
