Remembering Dixie Carter

Posted: 12:00 PM ET

Hal Holbrook’s statement on the death of his wife, Dixie Carter: “This has been a terrible blow to our family. We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy. Thank you.”

Annie Pott's statement: "Dixie Carter was a Goddess. Beautiful and brainy, smart and funny, prim and sexy, wickedly talented and divinely sweet. The kind of wife and mother that every mother hopes their daughter will become and the kind of friend that is absolutely irreplaceable. She loved fiercely and was adored in return. To have known her a little was a delight to all. To have known her well, a treasure beyond reckoning.

And now, a loss beyond measure." – Annie Potts

Jean Smart’s statement: “Dixie was such an amazing person. She was gorgeous, hilarious, incredibly talented and so devoted to her family. There was no one else like her and I was completely crazy about her.  She exuded joy. Richard and I will really miss her and our hearts go out to her beautiful family.”

-Jean Smart, April 12, 2010

(Richard Gilliland and Jean Smart have been married since meeting on the set of “Designing Women,” where Richard had a recurring role.)

Dixie Carter's 'Unworkout' yoga tape has been a part of my practice for years. My friend and I also do the first segment of that tape every week on our noon lunch break. My hope is that Dixie will be recognized for her many accomplishments, including her yoga videos, and that her family can come to realize how those videos truly transformed lives.
