"Designing Women" actress Dixie Carter dies at 70

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Designing Women" actress Dixie Carter, who used her charm and stately beauty in a host of roles on Broadway and television, has died.

She was 70. Publicist Steve Rohr, who represents Carter and her husband, actor Hal Holbrook, says Carter died Saturday morning.

A native of Tennessee, Carter was most famous for playing quick-witted Southerner Julia Sugarbaker for seven years on "Designing Women," the CBS sitcom that ran from 1986 to 1993.

She was nominated for an Emmy in 2007 for her seven-episode guest stint on the ABC hit "Desperate Housewives."

Carter's other credits include roles on the series "Family Law" and "Different Strokes."

She had been married to Holbrook since 1984.
