Sam Allen is Rex's illegitimate son. Conceived shortly before his father, Rex, met and became engaged to Bree Mason , Sam grew up in a poor household and spent most of his early years living in a small house with no central heating with his mother, Lillian.

Along the way, Andrew ran down Carlos Solis 's mother in a drunk driving accident but was never punished. And, Bree absolutely flipped out when he told her that he is gay.

But, over time, Andrew has grown from a spoiled child of privilege into a talented young man whose keen business sense has helped his mother build her catering empire. But, with so much history between these two, tension could flare up at any moment.
Orson Hodge was Bree 's second husband. Orson has met some basket cases in his time.

Having served his time, Orson found it difficult to find a job until his wife came to the rescue.
