It's been nearly a decade since the end of Reba, but JoAnna Garcia Swisher is totally in for a reboot.
The half-hour sitcom starred country star Reba McEntire as a single mother, whose character’s ex-husband married a younger woman. Swisher played Reba’s oldest daughter. Reba aired for six seasons on The WB and The CW, ending its run on Feb. 18, 2007.
“I think we would all be super pumped to get together professionally,” Swisher told ET’s Katie Krause at the Fist Fight premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. “But we all are pretty tight and stay pretty close and connected and spend a lot of time together, so it doesn’t really feel like it’s ever gone away. It airs like 100 times a day, so we’re reliving the moments.”
Last June, the 37-year-old actress welcomed her second daughter, Sailor Stevie, with former baseball pro husband Nick Swisher, and she gushed about how her oldest daughter, 3-year-old Emerson, is adapting to the little one.
“I think her older sister is handling it very well. She’s a really good big sister, but I kind of go a little over the top for the birthdays,” Swisher said, sharing her plans for Sailor’s upcoming 1st birthday. “Kicking around a little Alice in Wonderland theme. Always something a little crazy!”
Swisher also shared the lessons she’d instill in her two young children from her high school days.
“Don’t sweat the small stuff. It all works out,” Swisher said. “But it’s the drama that’s part of what makes high school so great. The heartaches and the falling in love -- hopefully the firsts, but not [the first] of everything.”
As for Swisher’s Valentine’s Day plans, she’ll be busy promoting Fist Fight in New York City. But, as she shared, the city has special meaning for her and her husband, who played for the New York Yankees from 2009-12.
“New York is a really romantic city and has a lot of great memories for my husband and I, so it’ll be good,” she shared.
Fist Fight hits theaters on Friday.
