"Designing Women" actress Dixie Carter (May 25, 1939 – April 10, 2010) the tough-love mother hen on Designing Women who became the mother-in-law from hell on Desperate Housewives, died Saturday at age 70. Her publicist says she passed away in the morning from complications arising from endometrial cancer.
"This has been a terrible blow to our family," husband and frequent costar Hal Holbrook said in a statement. "We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy."
I use to say she is a CELINE DION look alike don't know if any one shares same view on that though...
May her soul rest in peace..
