“She’s the voice of reason on the Bravo’s massively popular The Real Housewives of Atlanta, known for her major career, happy home life, redonkulous caboose—and for being the ultimate Southern Belle. Phaedra Parks has spark, but she’s also got serious savoir faire. She’s spent her entire life as a Southern Belle and she has a lot to share. What’s more, she honestly believes life as a Belle is simply better, for you and for the people around you.
As Phaedra knows better than anyone, if you are a Southern Belle, men would find you fascinating and women would want to be your friend. You would always be perfectly put together and never at a loss for words. You would have access to the very best of traditional Southern ways as well as the freedoms and opportunities of the twenty-first century. You would be charming and impeccable. You would never wear sneakers outside the gym.
In Secrets of the Southern Belle, Phaedra dispenses invaluable advice about fashion, etiquette, dating, and the workplace, giving a modern twist to traditional values and Southern etiquette. From nailing an interview to hosting the perfect backyard barbeque to the art of playing hard to get, Phaedra will help you tackle whatever comes your way—without ever breaking a sweat.”
The publisher is Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. In a press release, Phaedra promised that SOSB will help women an every aspect of their lives.
“This book is Southern Belle Savior Faire 101 and is sure to school you on how to leverage the wit, grace and charm of a true Southern Belle in all aspects of your life.”
Vice President, Editor-in-chief of Gallery Books, Jennifer Bergstrom also boasted her confidence in Phaedra’s capabilities to help the women of this generation.
“I think Phaedra represents the new Southern Belle—confident, poised, fun, smart, opinionated, and ladylike – that women in all parts of the country can aspire to. I’m thrilled to be publishing her book.”
After doing some digging, we found that the book was originally scheduled to be released this spring, but got pushed back to the fall. As of today, Secrets of the Southern Belles official release date is November 12, 2013.
I’m not going to lie, the nosy girl in me is a little curious about what she has to say.
