Write On, Mississippi! Chapter 9: Helen Ellis

Season 1, Ep. 9

Southern ladies have a code: If you don’t have something nice to say, say something not-so-nice in a nice way. Join author Helen Ellis, a New Yorker who clings to her Alabama accent like mayonnaise to white bread, as she tells you the unvarnished truth about what you think Southern ladies mean and what they really mean when they say things like, “Bless your heart,” and “He ain’t right,” and “You don’t need to get me anything!” Subscribe and take an unforgettable journey into the inner sanctum of the Calgon-scented, onion-dipped, monogrammed art of living as a Southern Lady.

Helen Ellis is the author of "American Housewife" and "Eating the Cheshire Cat." Raised in Alabama, she lives with her husband in New York City. You can find her on Twitter @WhatIDoAllDay and Instagram @americanhousewife.
