Melissa Peterman will play a character named Gabby. Gabby is described as a bartender who’s “needy and dramatic” and would love to be Bobbie’s sister.

Fans were especially thrilled to learn about Melissa’s involvement in the show, since Melissa co-starred with Reba on her namesake sitcom years ago. Melissa played Barbara Jean alongside Reba’s character, Reba Hart.


Reba didn’t share any details about Rex’s character when she first announced he joined the cast. She simply said, “…now we’re back with Melissa Peterman and Rex Linn, my boyfriend, and [a] wonderful, wonderful cast and crew.”
