Designing Women: Dixie Carter Dies at 70

Dixie CarterDixie Carter has passed away at the age of 70. Her last acting role was just a year ago in the film The Evening Sun with her husband, Hal Holbrook. Of her death, he said, “This has been a terrible blow to our family.”

Carter was best known to TV audiences as Julia Sugarbaker from Designing Women, a show about a group of women running an interior design firm. She starred along with Delta Burke, Annie Potts, Jean Smart, and Meshach Taylor.

Her television career included many other series as well, both before and after the popular CBS sitcom. They included stints on soaps One Life to Live and The Edge of Night, the 1977-78 CBS sitcom On Our Own, and Out of the Blue for ABC. In the early 1980s, she starred with Delta Burke in a parody of Dallas called Filthy Rich. That didn’t last and she went on to star as Conrad Bain’s new wife on Diff’rent Strokes. She left that show after a year to move to Designing Women, which lasted for seven seasons.
