Trivia:

Following her firing from Designing Women (1986), she was parodied in a short-lived Fox comedy show, The Edge (1992), in one skit where she was portrayed as a giant who was getting revenge on her former castmates by ripping the roof off the house, pulling them out, and biting their heads off like chickens. Despite the unflattering nature of the skit, Ms. Burke was reportedly very amused by it. See more »
