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.
