A delicious, laugh-out-loud funny Southern-fried memoir about growing up a "proper young lady..".or not.
A strict regimen of Southern-belle grooming should have prepared Anna Fields for a lifetime of ladylike behavior.
But it didn't.
As it turned out, Anna-a smart, outspoken, bookish girl- was a dud at debbing. After being kicked out of cotillion classes, the "Rebel Deb" left North Carolina to seek her fortune. Her first stop was Brown University-right in the heart of Yankee-land-and then the crazy world of Hollywood talent agencies and celebrity-packed restaurants. After a disastrous stint as Diana Ross's personal assistant, Anna headed off to the Big Apple, where she worked for one of Bravo's "Real Housewives." It's a rollicking, unlikely success story from a natural-born storyteller.
Sharp, sweet, and sassy, "Confessions of a Rebel Debutante" proves you can take the girl out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the girl
