Shania Twain is on the edge of a comeback… she’s launched a new psuedo-reality show… released a best selling memoir and now there’s rumors of a Vegas show and new music. So Country Songs Online deccided this is the perfect time to ogle some classic Shania video and remind ourselves just how much of a knockout she was – and still is.
The countdown begins with number five… – “Getcha Good” was never my favorite song but she had me at the skin tight black bodysuit…
Number Four This was just released and is shocking to us just how great she looks after being out of the spotlight for so long. Music’s good too…
Number Three – Shania on horseback… The Woman In Me was never a radio hit but the video sure makes a splash…
Number Two – Man I feel like A Woman
Number One – That Don’t Impress Me Much. Two words: Leopard Print.

***UPDATE- MARRIED – story here
Shania Twain is moving on with her life and into the future with her ex-best friends ex… it’s a kinda complicated story but not too big of a surprise after seeing Shania frolic with the boyfriend in a video she posted just over a year ago on her birthday blog. His name: Frederic Thiebaud.
US Magazine reportedly got a view of Twain’s engagement ring and locked the story (along with the spiffy cover pic).
Shania also just announced a book deal and six part tv special called “Why Not” set for Spring 2011. In the special it is said she “opens up about her divorce.”
Here’s a morsel from US – full story on newstands:
Twain, 45, stepped out with Thiebaud, 40, for a PDA-packed lunch at Serafina’s Fabulous Grill in NYC on Thursday with an enormous engagement ring.
“I’ve never seen Shania so happy,” a pal tells Us of the singer. Swiss-born Thiebaud, a Nestle business executive, popped the question about two months ago in Switzerland, but the couple’s road to matrimony was an exceptionally complicated one. Thiebaud is the ex-husband of Twain’s former best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud — the woman Robert “Mutt” Lange, Twain’s husband of 14 years, abruptly left her for in May 2008. (Both Lange and Marie-Anne denied the affair.) Twain and Frederic reached out to one another in the wake of the stunning double betrayal, and were spotted vacationing together in Canada, New York City and Florida. Finally, in August 2009, Twain — who has a 9-year-old son, Eja, with Lange — came clean about their new romance. Writing on her official website, she called Frederic “a dear friend and true gentleman…We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We’ve become stronger and closer through it all.” Adds the Twain pal: “She has ended up with the love of her life.”

Shania Twain celebrated her birthday by giving her fans a “gift” of a video montage on her website Today… Get a look at what she had to say and make sure you click through to see the home grown video from her and her new beau “Fred.”
See Shania globetrotting! Horseback riding at the Pyramids! Skydiving too! Sheesh… What a life!
Here’s what she wrote on her official Website:
Thought I would drop a line to catch you up on things in my life and what better time than on my birthday.
I feel very much alive and well, ready to take on the gift of another year. I’ve been on a few interesting trips, reading some helpful and motivating books, meeting fascinating people and getting the most out of life that I possibly can. Living, loving, laughing and dreaming have become highest on my list of priorities. I’m looking for places to be and things to do that inspire me to write and be creative, concentrating on moving on and forward.
When I wake up each day I remind myself how lucky I am to have all the beautiful things I do in my life and allow that gratitude to fuel me for the day, taking one day at a time. I try not to worry about tomorrow since I realize I can’t control what it will bring or whether tomorrow will even come. So, I focus on today and treat every minute with the respect it deserves and not take it for granted. I steer my energies toward being productive and finding motivation from every person, place and thing I encounter.
Traveling has helped a great deal. I consider myself on a journey of discovery and recovery. I don’t accept to be held down by the past, nor do I expect too much of the future. This allows me to dream freely with no strings attached.
I recently read something very encouraging to someone like myself, who lives and loves to dream: “PLANS HAVE TO BE REALISTIC, DREAMS DON’T.” Of course, I love this notion and allow myself to dream positive things and plan to live them out.
I make a point of surrounding myself with fun, positive, compassionate, loving people. Loved ones I can trust. After all, good company brings good feelings and feeling good just makes life more pleasant. The love and understanding of my friends and family have pulled me through the recent difficult time. It’s as if several hands grabbed me by the scruff of the neck during my lowest moment and promised not to let go till I was safe. They kept their promise, and I want to thank them, my lifesavers.
So, thank you my dear friends and family. Thank you to the fans as well for your words of comfort and encouragement.
All this has given me enormous strength.
A dear friend and true gentleman by the name of Fred, has been the most constant companion of support for both Eja and me, and having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time under the same extreme circumstances, he understood me better than anyone. We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We’ve become stronger and closer through it all, as have our children Eja and Johanna (Fred’s 8 year old daughter).
“The kids” came along on several of the trips you’ll see in the montage. My mother often called me her little Gypsy so it’s no surprise that travel is working for me in finding inspiration through seeing new and fascinating things. I’m putting that inspiration in to writing and more dreaming.
The best part about my dreams lately, is that not only am I allowing myself to dream, I set those dreams into action and live them out.
Fred filmed and snapped away during the travel adventures of the last six months, capturing the dreams becoming reality. The home footage is full of happy faces, beautiful, interesting places and lots of horses. Yeah!
When I reflect on it all, it’s clear how remarkably active my life has been since last December – a time in the life of someone working hard to “move on” and succeeding. Life has been gracious to me and the images show that very clearly.
Why I decided to share this personal side of my life with you at this point is to answer the questions I get asked so often lately: “how are you, where have you been and what have you been doing?”
A big part of the answer is in the montage. I’m “okay” – yes, I hit a very big bump in the road, but Eja and I are doing well and with all the concern you, my fans, have shown over this difficult period, I want you to see for yourself that we are doing fine, by sharing these personal images with you. Sorry about the poor quality of the footage but almost all of what you will see, both photos and video, were shot on Fred’s cell phone with the exception of the skydive filmed from a tiny, wrist camera worn by the guide. Although the images weren’t originally filmed with the intention of sharing them publicly, in the end I decided it was more fun to share them. We weren’t paying attention to quality, all of it being done on the fly, so I’ve included text in various places to help explain and make things easier to follow. Once again, it’s all very candid footage so be ready to see a lot of me without makeup, no touch ups, some bad hair and looking pretty goofy. There is no glamour but plenty of genuine smiles.
Fred and I have certainly had a lot of laughs through the months and while sharing these images with a good friend of mine after each trip, she now affectionately refers to us as, “Lucy and Ricky Ricardo”.
Hope you enjoy!
Now the big question is will she decide to make some new music? Clearly she’s writing… now HERE’s that video.
