Designing woman cast

Postby Sharn В» 15.04.2020

.

I'm an Internaut, and a general tech geek who's obsessed with creating web content! If you were around during the s, and you were a fan of 80s TV sitcoms, there's absolutely now way you missed Designing Women.

After the Mary Tyler Moore Show and at the beginning of The Golden Girls , the Designing Women cast was giving the world prime examples of smart, strong, independent women who were making it on their own. The series focused on the lives of four self-reliant women who worked together as co-owners of an interior design firm. The fifth member of the group was a self assured hired hand who had sense enough to give the women the lead in their firm, and still smart enough to provide aid and sometimes take control whenever it was necessary.

In this article we'll catch up with the Designing Women cast to see what they're up to today. If there is one woman who made this show the icon it was, for me personally, it was Dixie Carter and the way she played her character, Julia Sugarbaker. Julia was a smart, sharp and fierce woman who loved her family, her friends and her Southern Roots. Julia Sugarbaker was an astute business woman, devoted partner and mother and a passionate liberal feminist. Surprisingly enough, Dixie Carter was also all of these things, but with one exception Dixie Carter began her Hollywood career in the mid s on the soap opera, The Edge of Night and she married actor Hal Holbrook in , and you'll remember that Holbrook played the part of Julia Sugarbaker's fiancee, attorney Reese Watson.

Holbrook was her third husband, and the couple had two children. The premise of the film was that of an aging man Holbrook who was haunted by flashbacks and dreams of his beloved, deceased wife Carter. Sadly, this was Carter's last role. Dixie Carter died of endometrial cancer on April 10, in Houston, Texas, she was 70 years old. Actress Delta Burke's Suzanne Sugarbaker is perhaps the most popular character on the series.

Loud, brash, spoiled and incredibly beautiful, Suzanne Sugarbaker was an ex beauty pageant queen who was often "too much" to deal with for the show's other characters. While Julia could be counted on for the show's wit, Suzanne supplied the slapstick comedy. Due to rumored constant squabbles between the Designing Women co-stars, mainly Dixie Carter, and its executives, Delta Burke was not asked back to the show after its fifth season in Shortly after she was dismissed from the show, Burke donned a blonde wig to star in her self-titled TV sitcom, Delta.

The show lasted only one season, but her feud with Dixie Carter lasted for more than a decade. Burke and Carter reconciled and the two made an appearance together in Carter's Family Law series. She even did another stint as Suzanne Sugarbaker in the series Women of the House.

This time around, Sugarbaker has left Atlanta for DC, to take over her recently-deceased husband's seat in Congress. Burke married actor Gerald McRaney in , and the two are still together today. Delta Burke was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, and in light of the diagnoses, the actress loss weight. Burke and McRaney are the owners of a clothing line and antique store.

The actress has revealed her struggles with panic attacks and lifelong bouts of depression and she recently shared that she is a victim of compulsive hoarding syndrome. Delta Burke is open to talking about her issues, and she credits her husband McRaney as holding her together all these years.

Annie Potts played the former demure housewife turned firecracker business woman, Mary Jo Shively. The character had been married to a man she put through medical school, but once he had become the prominent physician, he cheated on her every chance he got.

As for Annie Potts, the world had already come to know the actress through her roles in the s TV series' Goodtime Girls and Romance Theatre and the blockbuster hit film, Ghostbusters After the end of Designing Women, Annie Potts has been on fire and all over the screen. Currently, Annie Potts is working on Toy Story 4. The actress has been married four times, her last marriage was to TV producer, director and cinematographer, James Hayman. The couple have been together since and they have two children.

Jean Smart breathed life into Designing Women's bold, brassy, wide eyed, romantic dreamer, Charlene Frazier. Often referred to as a "Hillbilly" by Suzanne Sugarbaker and her cousin Allison Sugarbaker, who would come along much later in the series, Charlene indeed hailed from the back hills of Missouri. Frazier was the business manager of Sugarbakers and she eventually met and married an U.

Air Force Officer, the two welcomed a daughter and they presumably lived happily ever after. She went on to even more successful series' like 24 and Harry's Law, and she had a notable run on the acclaimed TV drama, Fargo. Currently she's in post production on four projects, and she shows no sign of slowing down.

Jean Smart has been married to actor Richard Gilliland since You might remember Gilliland as J. Shackleford, the boyfriend of Mary Jo Shively. Smart and Gilliland met on the set of Designing Women, they have two children and they're still together today. Rounding out the Designing Women cast is the man of the house, Meshach Taylor. This section will be short, because there is a full article coming out dedicated entirely to Taylor, but I had to include him here in this look back of the iconic 80s TV show.

The actor portrayed ex convict, Anthony Bouvier. It is important to note that Bouvier was wrongly convicted, and he proved the content of his character time and time again. Oddly enough, Anthony and Suzanne grew close and the wacky pair became best friends - this trend crossed over into real life as Meschach Taylor and Delta Burke were close friends.

Quiet honestly, Bouvier often played the Ethel Mertz to Sugarbaker's Lucy Ricardo, but he was always there for her in the end. In Damien, Taylor had a tiny role as a doctor who's fate is sealed in the memorable elevator scene. Afterwards, he went on to bit parts on typical late 70s TV shows, and the film, The Howling. By far, his most notable film role was as a flamboyant window dresser in the film, Mannequin in Taylor's last television appearance was in Criminal Minds in He married Bianca Ferguson in , and the couple had four children together.

Sadly, Meschach Taylor passed away on June 28, , after suffering with colorectal cancer. Designing Women was an iconic 80s TV show with an amazing cast. Eventually, the show would go through many cast changes, but the original five set the tone for the rest of the show.

As the saying goes, "they don't make them like this anymore," and in the case of Designing Women, nothing could be truer. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account.

Thanks for the comment! I absolutely loved this show. I'm only 36, but it's amazing how times have changed. I'm so thankful to have been exposed to the goodness of the 80s and the 90s, even the early s. As I sit and enjoy the back to back reruns of Designing Women playing tonight on Antenna TV I'm remembering great times and passing this on to my teenage daughter.

Same to you, Rachelle. I will look out for that bio on Jean Smart. Didn't catch her in Fargo. Janis, do you know that I loved this show, but I never really thought of Jean Smart as being the most talented, but indeed as it it turns out I first started noticing how good she was in the TV version of Fargo, did you catch her in that? She really is a talented actress, I think I'll produce a bio hub about her And yes, she was brilliant in Frasier, but I missed Watchmen, I'll be sure to put that on my watch list now.

Happy Holidays to you Janis! I absolutely loved Designing Women. It was one of my favorite comedies. I would say Jean Smart is the most talented and really honed her craft over the years. She was brilliant on Frasier. Look out for her next Emmy. Great summary, Rachelle.
