Dixie Carter, the "Designing Women" star who used her Southern charm, quick wit and stately beauty in a host of roles on Broadway and television, died Saturday. She was 70.

...

A native of Tennessee, Carter was most famous for playing wisecracking Southerner Julia Sugarbaker for seven years on "Designing Women," the CBS sitcom that ran from 1986 to 1993. The series was the peak of a career in which she often played wealthy and self-important but independent Southern women.


What a loss. I loved her on Designing Women. Her character was famous for these long speeches that put people in their place. Very well done.

I loved Dixie Carter. She was sexy, smart and sassy and to my knowledge was the first woman on TV who voiced strong opinions about Womens Lib, politics and Feminism. Boy could she argue too. I absolutely had a crush on her.

I was for a year in the US when I saw that show for the first and only time. I think it was around 1993. It was never shown in Germany but I still remember the few episodes I saw. The chemistry between the actresses was great they always made me laugh.

Exactly Athena. The show centered around four women, who were depicted at smart, capable and opinionated. It was truly the first time I can remember that happening on TV and with success.

She could sing and act. Plus, she was a strong southern woman, spoke her mind, and a good role model. She will be missed. I have the collection of Designing Women DVD and watch them many times mainly because of her.
