Happy 65th birthday to the great Delta Burke!
Her other signature roles include Noleta Nethercott in the original Sordid Lives movie and Cherry Cherry on Popular.
Delta has had battles with weight and depression over the years but, just like her Broadway character of Truvvy in Steel Magnolias, she has survived. I hope she returns to acting on a regular basis at some point – but only if she wants to!
She’s one of my all-time faves and I wish her the very best on her birthday and always!
Here are a few scenes of Delta as Suzanne and as Cherry Cherry!
