The woman who self-claimed the “southern belle” title on season three of Bravo Television’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta is looking to expand her brand into the literary world.

Entertainment attorney Phaedra Parks is reportedly seeking to improve the gentility of her fans through the publication of an upcoming self-help book, says.

“It’s about being a southern belle and all the accouterments that go with it,” Parks said. “It’s a modern-day twist on etiquette and being a lady. And it’s alright for women to embrace their ladylike side.”

Parks believe the time is right for her book to hit the market.

“It’s high time that women start enjoying being ladies again. People have moved away from that,” she said. “I want to give my tips. So many people over the years have asked me about how to have it all without losing yourself.”

Not only is Parks looking to push her brand into the book business but she is also interested in changing the face of television with more positive programming. The former Real Housewives star is working on pitching three new “uplifting” and “empowering” reality television series.

“The first show is a docudrama and will take a group of women and empower them,” Parks said. “The second show is more of a documentary that deals with serious issues of dating. And the third show is more fun and lighthearted focusing on alternative lifestyles.”

    I am glad to see a woman of color is taking the initiative to get into the literary world and write about how to be a modern lady. I have read books on etiquette and manners and so far none of the authors have the same color as me and the guide is a bit out dated. I look forward to when her book comes out and read what she has to say. I am not surprised that some women disagree and disappove of her publication but I recognize when you are trying to uplift yourself and others people will always want to bring you down, especially those who are of color. Pheadra, I support you and hope your book can teach women how to be ladies, don’t let others get in your way of improving the lives of women.


    Phaedra can write the book and gives copies to Basketball Wives to read. That’s about how much etiquette this book will have in my view. She has no class herself, she just put on alot
