In the Book In the Movie
   Lulabelle shows up at the DAR meeting at Skeeter's house. She mingles with the 95 white women in attendance. She starts to fill in a form to join the group. Miss Phelan quietly asks her to leave and go through the back. She refuses and spits in her face. Miss Phelan tells Constantine that she can't have anything to do with her as long as she is living on the rent that they pay. Constantine is unwilling to leave her daughter so they move to Chicago together. Rachel shows up during the diner and wants to come in. She is told to go to the back door but she refuses and comes in the front. The president of the DAR can't believe she allows a black girl to disobey her like that. To save face she kicks her out and fires Constantine and tells her to leave as well.
   Skeeter is big and tall. Emma Stone, who plays Skeeter in the movie is 5'4" and slim.
   The deadline to get the book to Mrs. Stein is December 21st The deadline to get the book to Mrs. Stein is December 17th
   Skeeter gets a job writing the Miss Myrna column for the paper. She just applies for the job and gets it. She gets the job by showing a rejection letter she received from Miss Stein in New York. It says she needs more experience.
   Skeeter and Stuart break up - he returns to her and tells her he went to see his ex girlfriend and now that is behind him. He tells Skeeter she is now a hippy and she cheated on him and said he was a whore to his daddy. Didn't happen - only the final break up.
