Will Shania Twain Sing Again?

Country music is filled with songs of love, loss, and pain. Oh, also mangy ol' mutts, pick-up trucks, and watermelon wine, y'all...
The latest news about Shania Twain may add to that back-catalogue of tears. She's revealed she could be losing her singing voice, and if that's not bad enough, she could also lose her ability to speak!
Shania has dysphonia, a medical condition that hinders the body from producing audible vocal sounds. The condition started and worsened when she discovered ex-hubby, producer Robert "Mutt" Lange (an appropriate nickname!), was having an affair with ex-best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud. In an odd twist reminiscent of Hollywood, Twain married Thiebaud's former husband, Frederic in January this year.
In her new tell-all book, From this Moment On, she writes how she put her "heart, soul and dreams" into her home on a 24,700ha alpine sheep station near Wanaka. Shania and Mutt paid NZ$21.4m for the property seven years ago. It's not known how it was split after the divorce, but Shania no longer has a share in it.
Shania's "heart, soul and dreams" home, Wanaka:
y'all can't "Come On Over" no more...

Mutt seems to like the South Island high country though - he's eyeing up nearby 22,400ha Coronet Peak Station, worth NZ$5.2m.
Meanwhile Shania has a new reality show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network: Why Not? With Shania Twain. And she also has an estimated value of about US$450-500m. You GO, girl!

I (used to be) such a big fan until I read her book .The book is rather boring, but reveals how shallow she actually is as a human being !
