Potts ‘fried,’ will quit ‘Designing’

Another “Designing Women” cast member has drafted her walking papers.

Annie Potts, who plays Mary Jo Shivley, will quit after this season, she said during yesterday’s installment of “Entertainment Tonight.”

“I’m sort of fried,” Potts said. “I think seven years is a good number to have done something.”
