Overview

Brought into the media spotlight by her great-niece Pamela Anderson, Auntie Vie burst onto the scene as Pamela’s biggest supporter on “Dancing with the Stars.” Unexpectedly, Auntie Vie’s distinctive balance of earned wisdom and chic glamour quickly charmed the media and viewers of all ages. Her door suddenly stormed by cameras and reporters, Auntie Vie never missed a beat. Having harnessed the power of simply being herself, she has captured imaginations and inspired people with her rare pedigree: a down-to-earth farm gal and a sassy tinsel queen bee. And now, author Cathy Converse has captured her story.

Discover Auntie Vie’s life story, along with her fashion advice, best recipes, words of wisdom, and thoughts on aging and the power of dance. This glamour grandma is revealed in a scrapbook, packed with full-color photographs, about one woman’s life, lessons, and infectious sparkle. Born in a time before television, and now a media sensation, Auntie Vie’s pearls and pickles philosophy is sure to delight and inspire.

“Remember, all life needs a little sparkle once in a while.” —Auntie Vie
