BTWF: Annie Potts in Family
May 21st, 2021 under Before They Were Famous, Designing Women. [ Comments: none ]

Before Annie Potts was a designer on Designing Women, she was a rock star on Family. How gorgeous the 25-year-old in that 1978 episode?


Remember Delta Burke?
February 7th, 2020 under Designing Women, Remember?. [ Comments: none ]

This weekend, Delta Burke and her husband Gerald McRaney came out to sign autographs at The Hollywood Show, and they are such a sweet-looking couple. Can you believe how much in love they look after 30 years of marriage? Especially in a time when most couples cannot even make it to 30 months.

It has been a minute since we have seen Suzanne Sugarbaker, and the 63-year-old actress is still just as beautiful as she was on Designing Women. So much so, I hope a Hollywood producer thinks about giving her a show. Television has not been as sassy since she has not been on it. We need her back on the boob tube!


BTWF: Annie Potts in Corvette Summer
December 6th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Designing Women. [ Comments: none ]

Before Annie Potts was the spunky lady in Pretty in Pink, she was cool chick in Corvette Summer. How gorgeous was the 24-year-old in that 1978 movie?


Jean Smart was offered a lap dance from a 50-year-old female stripper
November 15th, 2019 under Designing Women, Seth Meyers. [ Comments: none ]

On Designing Women, Jean Smart’s character did a lot of interesting things in Atlanta. However, the most interesting thing she did in that city, the actress did in her real life.

She told Seth Meyers on Late Night that her Watchmen co-star Tim Blake Nelson invited her to the Clermont Lounge in Atlanta. A strip club where the dancers are more mature as in their 60’s and 70’s.

All of a sudden one of the younger strippers, in her 50’s, asked her she wanted “a dance.” She did not reveal if she said yes, but it is a night she will never forget. Especially when a drunk man knocked her off of her barstool.

Out of all of the things I did not do when I lived in Atlanta, this is the only thing I regret not experiencing.

One last note, how amazing would it be if they did a Golden Girls like sitcom and based it on the Clermont Lounge?


Jean Smart talks about the Designing Women sequel
September 11th, 2018 under Designing Women. [ Comments: none ]

Since it seems like every show from the end of the last century is getting a reboot, revival or remake, it should be no surprise that Designing Women is one of them. Since there has not been much information about the sitcom, Jean Smart cleared things up on Good Morning America today.

Charlene Frazier told Robin Roberts, “She [Linda Bloodworth-Thomason] is doing, kind of, a sequel more than a reboot. Because unfortunately, we have lost Dixie [Carter], Meshach [Taylor] and Alice Ghostley, and it just wouldn’t be the same without them.” Then she added, “I really think these reboots, people want to see, they don’t want to see a new version of, necessarily, they kind of want to see the original or something completely different. But I think that Annie [Potts], Delta [Burke] and I will show up occasionally.

I would totally watch the sequel if Suzanne Sugarbaker’s pig Noelle was running the design firm now.

As she said, the show has lost three of its main characters, so without them, it will not be the same. Julia was the brains of the operation, Anthony was the yin to their yang and Bernice made them all seem a little saner. Yet, it was their combined nuttiness that kept us tuning in every week.

Now that Smart explained what we can expect from the sequel, does it make you feel better or worse about Designing Women coming back to the small screen?
