For the women of GCB, the most important book is obviously the Bible. But for many real Southern women, both past and present, there's also the testament of Scarlett O'Hara.
"I feel like if you're a girl in the South, you know Gone with the Wind better than anything," Leslie Bibb, who plays GCB's Amanda, tells TVGuide.com. "Scarlett O'Hara is such a quintessential Southern woman."

About as subtle as a Texas tornado, GCB storms onto ABC with hopes of delivering Sunday-best ratings. While Desperate Housewives limps into the sunset, this gaudy, bawdy send-up of gossipy Dallas church divas has a brash, giddy energy reminiscent of happier times on Wisteria Lane.
