AMERICAN GUNS on Discovery Channel, stars The Wyatts, who are your typical loving family. Except for the fact they happen to own one of the premiere firearms facilities in the world. Rich Wyatt and his wife Renee own Gunsmoke, where they buy, sell and trade guns.
Renee a pistol packing mama, definitely knows how to manage the delicate balance between family and business. Born under the astrology sign of Cancer, she’s a Mama Grizzly Bear, when it comes to protecting her family. More than just a pretty face, she’s warm and affectionate, who deeply cares about her family and friends. With the cosmos shining bright on her next year, Astrochicks predicts new business opportunities for Renee and her family.
Astrochicks, had the opportunity to ask Renee what advice she would give fans who have teens at home. Parenting can be difficult and we thought she might have some words of wisdome to share.
Renee says, “The most important thing is that your child must feel safe in being honest with you. Our kids know that together we can handle ANYTHING…but they must be open and honest with us. We need the information, right away, with all the facts. Then we can move forward from there. Paige recently told me that she went to Kurt a while back to ask about the best way to handle something with her Dad and I. Kurt’s answer was, “Just don’t lie to them”. Right answer. ” Good advice!
In case you haven’t seen American Guns, Renee is absolutely gorgeous. We asked if she had any tips for us girls fighting the battle of the bulge. Renee says, ““First of all, thank you VERY much for the gracious compliment. It’s a struggle, but I am a pretty dedicated individual. I think that feeling good about yourself is very important, and I try to set a good example for my daughters with healthy habits. I am 46 years old and have four children from the ages of 22 to barely 3 years old. I stick to protein and veggies most of the time, I don’t smoke and rarely drink. I take some supplements and I exercise religiously. Like every day. An hour of Pilates and 20 minutes of cardio. I like to do the Stair Stepper while watching the Discovery Channel to catch up with what’s happening on the network.” Oh my, to have that discipline. She needs to do an exercise tape.
Astrochicks noticed on her Facebook page, Renee and her husband recently visited Manhattan Beach, our hometown. I asked her what she thought of our beautiful beaches. She told Astrochicks, “California for the most part is extremely restrictive in their laws, especially with gun ownership, so it’s not a place we choose to go very often (I can’t carry my gun there). That being said, I truly believe it is one of the most naturally breathtakingly beautiful places on earth. The beaches and gorgeous coastline, combined with the shopping, nightlife and restaurants…it’s simply fantastic. Plus my sister and her daughters live in Northern California, so I kinda have to be a LITTLE partial to it!”
