Today in Orlando B-list celeb history: Delta Burke

Posted By on Thu, Feb 13, 2014 at 1:02 PM


On this date in the history of Delta Burke (Colonial High Class of '74), "The Naked Truth" episode of "Designing Women" aired in 1989. Fans will naturally remember this classic entry where the ladies unwittingly take on an interior design contract with a nudist colony. In the b-story, Suzanne and Julia's nieces visit, offering a glimpse into an alternate universe of bickering Sugarbaker sisters. With jokes about Dan Quayle, castration, and "perky self-righteous flying bimbos," this episode is not optional for true students of situation comedy.

Standout Delta line: "I hate men with buck teeth!"
