Monday Musings on All Things Southern

Another round of "Who Am I?"

I was born in Orlando Florida in 1956 to a single mother. Mom later remarried, my stepfather adopted me; I've gone by his last name ever since. While in high school I competed in the Miss Florida contest and won. I continue to hold the title of the youngest winner in the history of the pageant.

From 1986 to 1991 I played on a highly popular CBS sitcom in which I played one of two sisters and one of four businesswomen. My role earned me two Emmy nominations but my weight gain eventually became more of an issue than my ability to act or make people laugh.

My primary residence (where I live with my husband) is in Los Angeles but I have several other homes, including one in New Orleans.

Who am I?

[Answer for a chance to win a book from my bookshelf. Name will be picked at the end of the week. Last week's winner was Kathleen Bruner!]


  1. It's gotta be Delta Burke.
    I LOVED her Suzanne Sugarbaker!!!!

    1. Jeannie, you are the winner of this week's book. Just message me privately with your mailing addy and I'll send you a book from my bookshelf!


  2. I miss her! Wish she were on TV more often. And, boy, does she have one sexy hubby.

  3. Me, too!!! She cracks me up as that character!

  4. Delta Burke! She played the southern belle completely over the top, and it worked!

  5. Kristie Ally.She's known as the fat actress, but I love her. I also love Delta Burke but someone already claimed her :) She was beautiful, and I loved to watch her. Blessings, BJ Robinson

  6. Delta Burke. I remember watching Designing Women back then. She (the character) had a ton of confidence despite how she irritated everyone else.

  7. Have to agree, a wonderful person and great actress! Love Delta Burke!
