Mister D: Reba can wish, but it’s highly doubtful Bette Midler would guest on a critically reviled show and a ratings disaster. Even if you’re a Reba fan, you can’t overook those two facts.
In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Reba reveals that Lily’s Big Business co-star Bette Midler is at the top of that guest star wish list. She says, “I would just absolutely love to have her because she and Lily Tomlin worked together. I would love to have Dolly [Parton] come on. Jane Fonda — they worked together on Nine to Five.”
Says Reba, “I got to work with Alec Baldwin on South Pacific when we did it in Carnegie Hall years ago. That would be fun.”
She adds, “Working with Alec is a hoot. He’s great. He’s just a very wonderfully talented, mischievous little boy.”
You can catch Reba Friday nights at 8:30 Eastern time on ABC’s Malibu Country.
