He knew from a very young age that he wanted to be an entertainer. What exactly he didn’t know. Until he ran into Miss Abby OMG and Reggy B was born.
After. one guest spot at one of Abby’s shows everything went very quickly for Miss Reggy B.
Reggy is shady and has a big mouth at times but secretly she is a sweetheart. She is the epitome of a fierce baby queen with humor, inspired by pop culture.
Her favorite thing is to host her own show, where she can entertain the crown all night long. A true entertainer at heart.
