I was so sad to hear the news that Dixie Carter passed away over the weekend. I have always been a huge fan of Designing Women, and I watched it every day on Lifetime in college as I got ready for class. I loved Dixie’s character, Julia Sugarbaker.
One of my favorite things about the character Julia was how she would always speak her mind and tell someone exactly what she thought about them. My favorite Julia moment was her "night the lights went out in Georgia" speech.
It is always sad when a show like that ends, but I was very excited when Dixie showed up on Wisteria Lane, playing Orson’s mother for several episodes of Desperate Housewives. I just read that she got an Emmy nomination for that role!
