Malibu Country Episode 12 “Adventures in Babysitting” airs Friday, Feb 8 2013, 8:30 p.m., PT/ET on ABC.
Episode Synopsis: In order to keep her from losing her deal with the record label, Reba agrees to collaborate with superstar bad girl singer Shauna, who demands to move into Reba’s home for awhile in order to get to know her better. But her bad habits start to rub off on the kids when she asks Cash to buy her some alcohol and encourages June to stop being so dependable. Meanwhile, Lillie Mae begins to think that Reba doesn’t miss her when she moves into Kim’s house for a few days after agreeing to housesit for her, on “Malibu Country,” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8 (8:31-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Show Summary: When Reba Gallagher (Reba) discovers that her husband, Bobby, (Jeffrey Nordling) a country music legend, has a cheatin’ heart, her world is turned upside down. Reba dreamt of becoming a country star herself, but put her career on hold to raise a family. Now she’s questioning all of that, big-time. With the ink on her divorce barely dry, Reba packs up her sharp-tongued mother, Lillie May (Lily Tomlin), her two kids and the U-Haul and heads for sunny California to begin a new chapter.
Leaving Nashville in the rear view, they start over at their Malibu residence — the last remaining asset they have. Reba gets to know her new open and loving neighbor Kim (Sara Rue) and her son, Sage, but also discovers that relocation to Southern California is going to be quite an adjustment for a traditional southern belle: the West Coast seems like the polar opposite of Music City, and Reba feels like an outsider. Still, with the support of her family she sets about finding her voice, jump-starting her music career with the help of her new music agent, Geoffrey (Jai Rodriguez), and embracing this chance to begin again.
