Southern ladies have a code: If you don’t have something nice to say, say something not-so-nice in a nice way. Join host 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.
||CleanCall Me||“Call me” is Southern Lady Code for: “Anything we text or email can be used against us in a court of law. Or get us socially ostracized. So let’s talk on the phone.” Helen stresses the importance of phone calls over texting when desiring to share secrets or gossip, and finds panty drawers enjoyable.

Southern Lady Code!
I have been a fan of writer Helen Ellis for sometime. Her entry into the podcast Genre does not disappoint. Her biting sense of humor keeps me laughing out loud along with her charming southern accent makes this New York girl dreaming about life in the South. I highly recommend this quick entertaining podcast. DKS
A visit with Helen Ellis is as enjoyable as a sunny day snack of sweet tea, cheese straws, and bourbon balls with extra bourbon. After you’ve listened to a few episodes you’ll be set to conquer Atlanta—or at least your southern hostess’s poolside barbecue. Do read American Housewife, Helen Ellis’s recent book of essays. I died! Can’t wait for the new book.
This is a short and fun podcast to listen to! Helen is hilarious! I loved American Housewife and really looking forward to the new book in April!!!
