Reagan Gomez-Preston as Roberta
Originally from Detroit, Reagan Gomez was a regular in community theaters by age five. When her family then moved to Philadelphia, she was cast in the films "New Jersey Drive" and Spike Lee's "Crooklyn."
Gomez wanted more than what Philadelphia had to offer, so at age 14, she and her mother made a trip to Los Angeles with "Dateline" documenting their journey for an episode about young actors. Within a few of weeks of landing in Los Angeles, she had booked the remake of "Freaky Friday," with Shelley Long. Shortly after, Gomez landed a starring role on the Robert Townsend series "The Parent 'Hood," and with his guidance and support, co-wrote one of the series' most-watched episodes.
Her other television credits include "Love, Inc.," "Carmen: A Hip Hopera," "ER," "That '70s Show," "JAG" and "One on One." Her feature film credits include "Never Die Alone," opposite DMX; "Love Don't Cost a Thing"; "Beauty Shop," with Queen Latifah; "Hair Show," with Mo'Nique and Taraji P. Henson; "Jerry Maguire"; "Trois 3: The Escort"; "Doing Hard Time"; and the upcoming "Dysfunctional Friends."
When not in front of the camera, Gomez enjoys writing and has penned two television pilots. She also wrote and executive-produced the short film "This Time."
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and their two children.
Roberta is Donna and Robert Tubbs' daughter and Cleveland's stepdaughter. She wants to be famous and hopes one day to be cohost to her idol, Tyra Banks. At first, Roberta doesn't accept Cleveland into the family, but over time, through Cleveland's acts of kindness toward her, Roberta has begun to open up to him. She's one of the more popular kids at Stoolbend High and is often seen with her boyfriend, Federline Jones. Roberta also has the uncanny ability to speak like her father, Robert, and has done so to insult her stepfather, Cleveland.
