JoAnna Garcia Swisher was recently interviewed by Monsters and Critics; check out an excerpt from her interview below!

JoAnna Garcia Swisher, along with the rest of us, is clamoring for Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias, which is slated to air this spring.

Sweet Magnolias takes place in the fictional town of Serenity and focuses on a working mom of three, Maddie Townsend (Swisher), and her two best friends from childhood, restauranteur Dana Sue Sullivan (Brooke Elliott) and attorney Helen Decatur (Heather Headley).

The three close pals have seen one another through romance, marriages, divorce, career, family triumphs and tragedies, and a lot more. And it does all of this with a great deal of heart, relatable characters, and real-life ups and downs that make us want to keep coming back for more.

The series is based on the popular Sweet Magnolias novels by Sherryl Woods and was developed by Sheryl J. Anderson. Sweet Magnolias premiered on Netflix in May 2020 and became a place for “comfort TV watching” appreciated by the entire family.

When the three besties — Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen — sit around bearing their souls and “pour it on” during frequent “Margarita nights,” many viewers feel like they are sitting there providing a lot of laughs and a shoulder to cry on when the three women are sharing the chips, dips, and libations.

Being back together to film Season 3 was something that Swisher truly appreciated. “It’s the best. I love it. Brooke and Heather are two of my favorite people, and I love working with them,” Swisher recently told Monsters and Critics. “We just have this unique chemistry that felt like it was pretty instant. I can’t wait for everyone to come back to Serenity for Season 3.”

Read on for why we all need self-care time, how she has bonded with the actors on her hit Netflix show, and what she is excited about for Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias this spring.

Hey everyone! First, I want to apologize for my absence recently. I have been adjusting to starting a new job and finishing up my academic career, so my fan sites had to take a back seat for a few months. I’m now trying to play catch-up and get things back on track.

In November, JoAnna and Nick attended the premiere of her latest movie Christmas with the Campbells. Check out the photo gallery to see 18 photos from the event.

They know what’s real. JoAnna Garcia Swisher has plenty of romantic kissing scenes on Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias with leading man Justin Bruening, but her kids know the smooches are just for work.

“It doesn’t confuse them,” the former Reba actress, 43, exclusively told Us Weekly while promoting her partnership with Mrs. T’s Pierogies. “Especially with Justin on Sweet Magnolias, they know Justin and his family and his wife so much. So we’ve kind of explained it in that way.”

Garcia Swisher (who plays Maddie Townsend on Sweet Magnolias) shares daughters Emerson, 9, and Sailor, 6, with husband Nick Swisher, who she married in 2010. Bruening (who plays Cal Maddox), meanwhile, has been married to wife Alexa Havins since 2005, and they share daughter Lexington, 12.

“I don’t think they’re super excited about it,” Garcia Swisher admitted to Us. “They’re not like, ‘Oh, that’s so fun to see, Mom,’ but they get it. They totally understand it. It doesn’t traumatize them — at least I don’t think.”

Between finishing filming season 3 of the Netflix drama late last year and raising two little ones, the Florida native knows that she has to make time for self-care.

“Lately, I’ve been trying to walk a little bit more, just get out of the house,” she told Us, noting that winter weather makes that more difficult so she has some indoor alternatives. “I like to read. I like to take baths. I journal. But I definitely am adamant about my space. It’s, like, there’s certain things in my recharging space that cannot be infiltrated, like my cozy blanket, a nice pillow, a comfy chair, chargers. My kids know not to steal the chargers from mommy’s recharging space.”

Having a space that’s all her own is key. “I think it’s so important to have your own little corner of the universe, because inevitably, as a mom, things get so crazy and we’re running around and firing on all cylinders,” Garcia Swisher explained. “It can be exhausting and it doesn’t take long to just give yourself a minute and recharge and it just makes everything so much better.”

That’s why she teamed up with Mrs. T’s Pierogies to share design tips and cash prizes to help moms create their own “recharging room” in their homes (as well as easy pierogi recipes to make family dinners simple). One deserving mama will win $20,000 and a personalized design by the actress for the ultimate “recharging room” in their home.

“I actually am a huge fan of Mrs. T’s Pierogies, and I have them in my freezer right now,” Garcia Swisher told Us. “But I was so excited when they said that they wanted to support moms, and so they created this All-Star Moms campaign and asked me to be a part of it, to help design recharging stations and inspire moms to take some time for themselves. And I thought, ‘This couldn’t be more of a perfect partnership.’”

Starting February 28 through March 28, anyone can nominate a deserving mom in their life (or themselves) for prizes by visiting the website for Mrs. T’s Pierogies.

December 18, 2022 Interviews

JoAnna Garcia Swisher appreciates her share of family films and romcoms. However, a project like Christmas with the Campbells allows her to flex acting somewhere she seldom ever goes; a raunchy holiday comedy. Another unique aspect of the film is that it’s a female director helming the project when others like it are often monopolized by men. The film follows Jess (Brittany Snow), who gets dumped by her boyfriend right before Christmas, but his parents still want to celebrate the holiday with her while their son is away. Then she meets his cousin, but Christmas gets a lot more complicated once the ex returns. Garcia-Swisher spoke to Bleeding Cool about reuniting with director Clare Niederpruem, how the film is a welcome change compared to her other work, co-star Julia Duffy, Monopoly, her favorite Christmas films, and her two cents on Die Hard as a Christmas film.

What intrigued you about ‘Christmas with the Campbells?’
Garcia Swisher: I love a good Christmas movie, and I’m always up for a little offbeat comedy. So mix the two, and I was in.

Did it feel like kind of a refreshing experience to do something like this?
Yeah, in a ton of ways. It’s working with really funny actors and getting to tell Vince Vaughn jokes and make each other laugh. It was refreshing and a lot of fun. I love doing comedy, but I’ve spent a lot of time as of late in the more heartfelt romance space, and it’s a nice little breath of fresh air for me.

JoAnna Garcia Swisher is a multifaceted talent who is best known for bringing layered characters to life in projects including Reba, Privileged, Fist Fight, and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and the co-founder of The Happy Place. This winter, she stars opposite Brittany Snow, Justin Long, and Alex Moffat in Christmas with the Campbells.

Christmas with the Campbells is directed by Clare Niederpruem and co-written by Barbara Kymlicka, Vince Vaughn, and Dan Lagana. When Jesse (Snow) gets dumped right before the holidays by her boyfriend Shawn (Moffat), his parents convince her to still spend Christmas with them, and Shawn’s handsome cousin, while Shawn is away. JoAnna shines as Becky, a career-driven entrepreneur who knows exactly what she wants.

Pop Culturalist was lucky enough to speak with JoAnna about Christmas with the Campbells, reuniting with Clare and Vince, and how she honors her parents and grandmother during the holidays.

There are so many things to be grateful for this year and one of them is that JoAnna Garcia Swisher is set to be everywhere on our screens very soon. Not only does the delightful actress have Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias in the can, she’s also featured in AMC+’s upcoming holiday feature Christmas with the Campbells (written by Vince Vaughn and A Christmas Story‘s Peter Billingsley), hosting Netflix’s The Ultimatum: Queer Love and building out her home-decor line for HSN.

A longtime favorite of TV Insider, we jumped at the chance to speak with her about taking the leap into design and how she has “battle-tested” her pieces with the help of her two daughters and husband, retired MLB star Nick Swisher. So just in time for your Black Friday frenzy, here she is being as lovely as her collection.

OK, as soon as I saw as ad for your HSN line pop up on my Instagram feed, I was like, “Oh we need to talk about this.” Because this is so exciting!

JoAnna Garcia Swisher: Oh my God, you’re so sweet. Yes, it’s been fun.

So when did this actually all start to germinate?

It really started during COVID. I was approached to kind of start this line and we started talking with HSN. Our original launch was supposed to be in the fall of 2021 but because of shipping delays, we weren’t able to launch then. So we ultimately ended up dropping in the spring of 2022, which was great. And every line has felt like a baby to me now, right? We were looking to do a holiday collection this year, but because of Covid-related issues, we weren’t able to do it. But we are gonna do a holiday capsule collection next year and I can’t tell you how excited I’m about that.

That’s what I’ve sort of been working on lately, that and our fall of 2023 line. That’s how far in advance we’re doing these things.

I am guessing you are sort of used to that kind of schedule with filming? You work on something for so long and then it doesn’t come out for six or eight months.

Well, that’s kind of what this year has been like! We just finished Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias, literally a couple of weeks ago, and then this movie Christmas with the Campbells I shot last January, which is coming out in December. And then I am hosting another show called The Ultimatum, which I shot even prior to that, like a year ago now! So pretty much everything that I worked on last year is coming out now. [Laughs]
