Dixie Carter Dies

Actress Dixie Carter has died at age 70.  Although there aren't many details surrounding the cause of death,  Carter's husband and Designing Women co-star, Hal Holbrook issued the following statement, "this has been a terrible blow to our family. We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy."
As a longtime fan of Designing Women (particularly the Sugarbaker sisters played by Dixie & Delta), I had to post one of my all time favorite Julia Sugarbaker scenes. Dixie Carter played this character brilliantly. She always nailed the perfect mix between straight shooter and southern belle!  
Rest in Peace Dixie.

Julia stayed dropping ether on folks. I didn't think she was that old, but I guess the 80s were a while ago. RIP Dixie.

Her tirads were classic...the epitome of maintaining a certain level of decorum and still cutting folks to the white meat! I LOVE IT!! She will be sorely missed...
