Catherine Bach DAISY DUKE The Dukes of Hazzard Dolly Parton

Actress Catherine Bach created her own iconic DAISY DUKE look for hit TV show The Dukes of Hazzard because she didn't want to be seen as a Dolly Parton knock-off.

The sexy star has revealed she was far from happy with series creator Gy Waldron's vision for her character and begged him to let her style Daisy.

She tells Access Hollywood, "They gave me a poodle skirt with a little turtleneck (top) because the creator of the show... was in love with Dolly Parton and that was on her album cover.

"I'm like, 'OK, I'm not gonna channel Dolly Parton.' I said, 'Please, can I have a chance to show you what I think she should look like.' And he said, 'OK'. I came in the next day with different clothes and he said, 'OK, we got a deal'."

Jessica Simpson has no regrets about gaining weight since starring in The Dukes of Hazzard, insisting she doesn't want to look like DAISY DUKE.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Simpson says, "I love my curves. I'm not going to ever be size zero, and I don't want to weigh 90 pounds."

The Dukes of Hazzard's original DAISY DUKE, CATHERINE BACH has leaped to Jessica Simpson's defence, branding reports about her protege's ballooning weight "vicious".
Simpson played sexy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard movie in 2005, and Bach has been a fan ever since.

She tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, "I think it's a shame that Jessica has been viciously attacked for superficial reasons. It sends a bad message to our young girls that, in order to fit in, you have to be skinny and your outfits better make you look skinny, too.


"What I hope my daughters are learning from me is to respect themselves, honour their bodies, and show compassion and kindness towards others."
