Reba has been an open book with her fans for decades now, so it's no wonder she's comfortable playing what is pretty much a version of herself on her new show Malibu Country . Reba stopped by Good Morning America Monday to chat about her role as single mom Reba Mackenzie saying, "What you see is what you get. I am pretty much that character. I try to raise my kids right. I try to discipline 'em, just like in real life."
Reba's on-screen relationship with Lily Tomlin , who plays her character's mother Lillie Mae, also mirrors Reba's relationship with her real-life mom Jackie .
"We were buddies, best friends, and that's the way we are on the TV show," Reba says of that mother-daughter dynamic. As for working with Lily, Reba says, "She's wonderful to work with. To hang out with. I just love it."
Malibu Country airs Friday nights at 8:30 Eastern time on ABC.
