Her dirty little secret?? She's a closet Democrat.


Rocky Mount Barbie: This tobacco chewing, brassy-haired Barbie still has not learned that you can't wear high-heeled sandals from Payless with no pedicure and without breaking a heel and falling while you chase your beer-gutted, hollow-gold-chain-wearing boyfriend.

Raleigh Barbie: This True Blonde shops exclusively in Saks Fifth Avenue. She drives her Land Rover (sold separately). She has an MBA from Duke but has never worked outside the home. Her child's stroller is bigger than your house and her tennis trophies are discreetly hidden behind CEO Ken's golf trophies. She knows enough Spanish to talk with the nanny; Tagalog to speak to the cook; and Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean, to talk with the gardener, house painter, and housekeeper, respectively. She is a lifelong member of the Junior League and her home is featured in Architectural Digest. Her dirty little secret?? She's a closet Republican.
