Barbra Jean "BJ" Hart (nee Booker) (Born: 1970) is a fictional character in the television series Reba.


"BJ" was Brock's dental hygienist and had an affair with him as his marriage with Reba was deteriorating. The result was her getting pregnant, and marrying Brock even though he and Reba were not officially divorced yet. Her comically religious behavior was phased out over the course of the first season. Barbra Jean is even less intelligent than Van, more oblivious than Jake, and is often an easy target for Reba's and Kyra's sarcasm. Despite being noisy and annoying, Barbra Jean is a kind-hearted person with good intentions. She has a tendency to tell "over-the-top" results, and often shares many random and often bizarre facts about her childhood and past. The most that can be understood is that she was born in Friendly, Texas and was known as "the biggest baby in Juno County." She has a currently married sister named Katie Ann, a brother named "Buzzard," and a father ("Big Daddy") who enjoys drinking and hunting. Brock is afraid of both "Buzzard" and "Big Daddy" because he knows they don't like him. She also claims to have an aunt who spits professionally, ironically named Aunt Silvia. In the last season, she lost a considerable amount of weight and became a weather girl (with the stage name "Stormy Clear-weather") at a public-access cable station. Her meteorological expertise came from the fact her "butt-rometer" could accurately predict rain ever since she was struck by lightning in her, "be-dazzler-studded backside," in 1982. In the last episode, she was traded up as a roving news reporter at her station, calling her segment "Babs Janson: Street Walker." 


Dr. MorganEdit

Barbra Jean has had a crush on Dr. Morgan since they met. Dr. Morgan says that she has underwent "transference" with him, a situation where the separated spouse becomes attracted to their therapist. She has on two occasions kissed him, stole his bubblegum and gave it back, and then afterwards sang "Amazing Grace". She is revealed to still have a crush on him when she sees him again later.
