From Phaedra Parks, breakout star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, comes a true Southern Belle’s witty, practical, no-nonsense guide to life. In Secrets of the Southern Belle, Phaedra tackles topics such as fashion, grooming, manners, dating, careers, family, friendships, finances and more. Combining Southern ways with the freedoms and opportunities of the twenty-first century, Phaedra’s advice gives a modern twist to traditional Southern values and etiquette.
A review of Secrets of the Southern Belle from Publishers Weekly says, “Parks invites readers onto her porch for a dose of good old-fashioned Atlanta etiquette…The author is helpful on topics like table manners, dress codes, parenting, and money management, and downright informative when speaking on propriety at a Southern funeral.” A review from Library Journal claims,”If Parks can be a fabulous homemaker, managing partner of a boutique law firm, and star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you can, too.”

She is the managing partner of the boutique law firm The Parks Group, a licensed mortician and funeral director, TV show producer and cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
