My mother-in-law is super gay."Van pleads with his mother-in-law to go along with the lie for a little longer, so that he can secure Sadie as his agent.Final Mewsings: People’s severe allergies to cats can be exploited for the sake of comedy.
It’s hard to imagine a more middle-America, apple-pie sitcom than Reba, which airs on the WB on Friday nights and stars legendary country singer Reba Mc Entire as the soccer-mom head of a dysfunctional family in Texas, which includes 21-year-old daughter Cheyenne (Jo Anna Garcia), who got pregnant at 17 and married her high school sweetheart, Van (Steve Howey); 15-year-old Kyra (Scarlett Pomers); and 10-year-old Jake (Mitch Holleman).
Rounding out the cast is ex-husband Brock (Christopher Rich) and his current wife Barbra Jean (Melissa Petermen), the dental assistant whom he left Reba for after 20 years of marriage.
Barbra Jean could best be described as a ditzy blonde with good intentions even if her efforts weren't reciprocated.
Despite playing a key role in the dissolution of Reba and Brock's marriage, Barbra Jean desperately wants to be best friends with Reba, regardless of Reba's obvious disdain for her.
Reba’s only concern about being mistaken for gay is that it will hurt Sadie’s feelings, and Sadie’s sexual orientation is clearly not a concern for Reba, nor a barrier to forming a friendship with her.
