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.

Reba Reveals Her “Malibu Country” Guest Star Wish List
January 15, 2013
Starstruck Reba is having a blast playing “Reba MacKenzie” on Malibu Country opposite Lily Tomlin and Sara Rue, but she hopes to have some of her famous friends guest star on the show at some point.
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.”
Reba also named William Shatner as a star she’d like to have on Malibu Country along with Alec Baldwin.
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.
