How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment
by Phaedra Parks
Normally, a book like this wouldn’t find its way into my hands, but I will admit that being a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta made me a little curious. A modern day book of manners, Secrets of the Southern Belle is filled with tips on how to live a fabulous life as a “lady” and how to do things “properly”.
Like most books of its kind, there are guidelines on relationships, keeping a home, work life, and entertaining. Parks’ humor and southern twist makes those old standards fun to read. And yes, she gets a few jabs in, like what to do when someone attempts inappropriate communication with your significant other (looking at you, Kenya) and other reality show related tidbits.
I’m not necessarily the target market for this book, but it could be helpful for young women who need guidance on the appropriateness of certain behaviors and situations.
