Barbara Reynolds was the mother of Dennis Reynolds and Dee Reynolds, and the ex-wife of Frank Reynolds.


Barbara was a classic whore. She originally dumped Dennis and Dee's biological father Bruce Mathis and married Frank because she thought Frank was richer than Bruce and because Bruce was more generous as he gave his money to charities. Bruce had in fact inherited a large fortune from his father when he died.

She was a cold, cruel, selfish woman with little affection for her husband or daughter. She seemed to favor Dennis over Dee. In her will she left Frank and Dee with nothing and stated that Dee was a mistake (despite the fact that Dennis and Dee are twins). She could be arguably considered to be one of the worst and most despicable human beings in the show.

She also expressed no concern for Dee after seeing her in a neck brace.[1]

She once slept with Mac and instantly regretted it. ("Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom")​ Frank frequently referred to her as his "whore wife".[2]

She told Ari Frankel that Frank used to beat her. ("The Gang Goes Jihad")

Barbara died from a botched neck lift. ("Dennis and Dee's Mom Is Dead")

She had a sister, Donna, and a niece, Gail. ("The Gang Gives Frank an Intervention")

She was the daughter of Heinrich "Pop-Pop" Landgraf who outlives her.
