WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New York Times bestselling author Celia Rivenbark takes on modern manners in her new book "Rude Bitches Make me Tired."

Not sure why this made

Not sure why this made wwaytv3 news but.... Loved this book :)

If she doesn't even have a

If she doesn't even have a broad enough vocabulary to avoid a cuss word in her title, then her writings aren't worth the read.

etiquette?

Taking advice on etiquette from a book with "bitches" in the title seems rather ironic.

Celia

Is returning to the well once too often.
She needs to take a break from the Southern Humor continuous ranting to find some fresh material.

Celia

Really, have you read her books? They are hilarious, and true, and we all need to laugh at ourselves once and again! She is a treasure to our area! I can't wait to read it!

Yes I have, and they have become boring and tedious.
"Bless your heart, Tramp" (her first) looks and reads the same as "The Height of Rudeness".

What used to generate laughs now barely garners a snicker. She is no longer worth the time, effort, or money to read.
She does what many authors do - stick to what they know best. In her case it's a low brow attempt at country humor.

Like I said - it's time for her to take a break.

Vog...

Man, you sure have some inner anger bubbling about this subject. Why so? Is it possible that her approach to "country" humor hits home? Or is it that you are a Yankee transplant who would never be able to laugh at the truth of how a Southern woman thinks? My guess is the latter. So, don't buy her books, but some of us like them and will continue to buy and read them.

As a man I can't understand how ANY woman thinks - southern, northern, eastern or western. I raised three of my own and don't understand how THEY think now that they're grown.....

Inner anger?
Absolutely not. But honestly bored with her writing - as I am with Grisham.

Celia

Vog, It's what she does. This is her brand. That is like trying to tell John Grisham to stop writing about court dramas. Have you ever read one of her books? You need to find another topic to comment on,,,oh that's right, you comment on all.
