She’s gone country! Malibu Country, that is.

Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow, who also goes by Heather Paige Kent, has landed a guest-starring role on Reba McEntire’s ABC sitcom.

In the episode, Dubrow plays Brooke, a friend of Reba’s neighbor Kim Sallinger (Sara Rue).

“Reba finds herself in a bit of a pickle when she says some unkind things about Kim – not knowing that the camera is rolling – and tries to pin the blame on Kim’s friend Brooke,” reads a press release from ABC.

The episode of Malibu Country, which airs Fridays (8:30 p.m. ET), is expected to air in January.

The show also stars Lily Tomlin as Reba’s medicinal marijuana-using mother, Lille Mae MacKenzie.
