Scandal! producers described Reggie, saying: “Measured and always neatly dressed, Reggie’s wealth allowed him to retire fairly young although he chooses to live a surprisingly modest life. After retirement, he took up painting, a hobby he had always been interested in. 

There have been conspiracy theories from fans that Reggie might be Dintle’s absent father. She has no idea who her father is and from the script, it appears writers are heading in that direction in finding out who he is.

It might be her husband, Reggie.
