This Is The Real Reason The Pioneer Woman Hates Slurping

Ree Drummond, more popularly known as The Pioneer Woman is someone who's known for her expertise on home cooking. The star has strong views and she's not afraid to express them when needed — for example, Drummond really despises bananas. Back in 2011, she explained on her blog why the fruit makes her so angsty.

She wrote that she has always disliked bananas, even as a toddler. Yep. "I happen to believe that this is some sort of genetic aversion, as both my dad and one of my brothers share it, too." She further added that she's never managed to eat an entire banana throughout her whole life. Whenever she did attempt to (or mistakenly) bite into the fruit, she ended up feeling disgusted and spitting most of it out. As it turns out, the blogger and television personality has another pet peeve — she simply can't stand slurping.

The Pioneer Woman has a valid reason to ban slurping

In Drummond's memoir, which was released on November 17th, the blogger describes why she's so averse to slurping. In the memoir, Frontier Follies: Adventures in Marriage & Motherhood in the Middle of Nowhere, Drummond dives into her life at her family's Oklahoma ranch and offers fans a rare glimpse into her personal life. For example, the chef doesn't shy away from cattle castration when it comes to life on the farm (via the New York Post.)

In the new book, Drummond also explains that she has a valid reason for not being able to stand slurping. She has a condition called misophonia, which is when certain noises trigger a strong emotional response. These sounds don't affect most people as much, according to Harvard Health Publishing, but for someone like The Pioneer Woman, they can be unbearable. Drummond wrote about what it feels like when she is triggered by noises. "My sweet [daughter] Paige would eat a bowl of cereal and my insides would come unglued," Drummond explained. "My youngest child, Todd, would slurp and I could feel my blood start to boil."  The star dug further into understanding what could be causing her painful pet peeve and figured out it's misophonia. Now, she simply stays away from slurpy foods like mangoes and peaches
