During her appearance, Reba revealed she was originally cast as the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown, which was ultimately played by Kathy Bates.

“We were on tour and I had a lot of people on the payroll and we had these three months to do the movie. And then they got behind on scheduling and said, ‘No, we’re going to have to move it in this time.’ So we couldn’t reschedule all the arenas and everything,” she revealed.

Andy Cohen then asked her if it killed her when the movie became a hit: “Well, sure, absolutely,” she confessed, “but you got to take care of your people.”
