RIP Dixie Carter

Dixie Carter, best known for her role as Julia Sugarbaker on Designing Women, has died. She was 70-years-old.

Carter had been on television screens since (at least) the 70s, when she had a role on the short-lived series On Our Own. Since then, Carter had roles in various other shows – including Diff’rent Strokes, until she finally got her break in Designing Women. Most recently, people may remember her as playing Orson’s messed up mother, Gloria Hodge, on Desperate Housewives.

Below I have put some clips of her famous portrayal as Julia. RIP Dixie.

    Was she married to Hal Holbrooke? And secondly, is he still with us? What do you think were his best roles? He was great as Mark Twain in that one-man show that might still be going … Woody Harrelson did a bit on that (Twain) in a Cheers episode.
