Her newly released book "F" the Housewives: Stop Watching. Start Living. “F” The Housewives is a tongue-in-cheek play on the current wave of reality shows that narrowly depict the lives and values of TV “housewives.” More important, it is a step-by-step guide to rethinking how women personally define themselves, articulate and pursue their lives' goals. DeEtta Jones draws on her nearly twenty years of research and professional practice, sprinkled with life experience, to open readers up to a new way of thinking about themselves—as writers of their own life scripts. Housewives is based on transformative concepts and practices used by leaders of some of the world’s most successful organizations. As Jones translates them for individual consumption, consider this a session with your own leadership coach and keepin’- it-real BFF. For more information visit
