Daisy Duke

Fictional Hillbilly Babe

Born: 1979
Best known as: The hubba-hubba cousin on TV's The Dukes of Hazzard

Daisy Duke was the cheerfully buxom hillbilly cousin on the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard. The country-fried car-chase show was a prime-time hit from 1979-1985. Daisy mostly wore halter tops and extra-tight denim cutoffs (which became widely known as "Daisy Dukes"). Daisy Duke was played by Catherine Bach; her cousins Bo and Luke Duke were played by John Schneider and Tom Wopat. In a 2005 feature film version of the story, Daisy Duke was played by pop singer Jessica Simpson.

Extra credit:

Daisy Duke’s shorts inspired the 1992 double-platinum single “Dazzey Duks” by the rapper Duice… According to The Hollywood Reporter, Britney Spears was considered for the role of Daisy Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard movie before Simpson got the part.
