Lois Frankel, author of 'Nice Girls Get the Corner Office,' is taking things one step farther. In her upcoming book, entitled 'Nice Girls Just Don't Get It,' she says that although it's not necessary to be a mean girl, you can't be a doormat and avoid conflict if you want to achieve just about anything in life.

"There's a continuum, or a spectrum, from nice to b---h," she said in an exclusive interview with AOL Jobs on This Week in Careers. "On one end of the spectrum is Sally Field, the quintessential nice girl. On the other end of the spectrum is maybe someone like the late Leona Helmsley, who people knew as 'The Queen of Mean.'" Or maybe Omarosa from 'The Apprentice.'
