Dixie Carter Dies

Dixie Carter, best known for her role on TV's Designing Women, has died. She was 70.

Born in Tennessee, the actress received her big TV break after being cast in the soap opera, The Edge of Night. Of course, she is best known for the seven seasons she spent on CBS as Julia Sugarbaker. In 2007, she also received an Emmy nomination for her guest stint on Desperate Housewives.

Carter died on Saturday. According to The Associated Press, no cause of death was given.

Before her success with Women, she was teamed up with costar Delta Burke for another CBS comedy, Filthy Rich. She also appeared in the popular NBC series, Diff'rent Strokes.

Carter is survived by two daughters and her husband of almost 26 years, actor Hal Holbrook.

"This has been a terrible blow to our family," Holbrook said in a written statement. "We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy."
