Dixie Carter Has Passed Away

April 10, 2010 / Posted by:

Not Julia Sugarbaker! Sadly, Dixie Carter went off to heaven today to decorate God’s sun room in Laura Ashley florals and white wicker furniture. Dixie’s husband Hal Holbrook said that she passed away today at the age of 70. Hal wouldn’t say where she died or the cause of death. Hal issued this statement through his publicist:

”This has been a terrible blow to our family. We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy.”

Dixie is mostly known for playing the refined southern blossom Julia on Designing Women, but she was also in Desperate Housewives, Family Law, and Diff’rent Strokes.

Dixie is survived by her husband and two daughters.

Rest in peace, Dixie.

And somebody grab the smelling salts and put them up to Anthony Bouvier’s nose, because I’m pretty sure he dramatically fainted after hearing this sad news…
