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


Barbara was a classic gold-digger. 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 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.

Early Life

Barbara was born in 1948. ("A Very Sunny Christmas")

Frank started a company with his partner, and stole all the money from his partner. ("A Very Sunny Christmas")

Barbara tricked Frank into raising the twins because she thought he was wealthier than their biological father, Bruce Mathis. ("Dennis and Dee Get a New Dad")

Season Two

During this season, she reconnected with the twins, divorced Frank, and slept with Mac.

Season Three

Barbara's Grave


Barbara died of a botched neck-lift in 2007. (Dennis and Dee's Mom Is Dead) Frank delivered the news to The Gang armed with champagne.
