Number 2: The Real Housewives and Chicken

After they dismounted those spitting creatures (all of the animals in Morocco spit apparently, snakes, camels, etc.), the ladies had a really delightful meal in an enormous tent. It was lovely, except for the fact that no one listened to each other until people were wearing the "Salt Shaker of Speaking," and even then that didn't work too well. But there is this:

But the dinner is not my favorite part of this deal. . . nor was it some of the ladies. The next morning proved to have a bit of stomach troubles for our gals. Sonja and Ramona ate something that gave them a bit of pause, and Jill knew exactly why. It was the fruit, or the meat. But her advice that "If it doesn't start with a chicken and end with a chicken" not to eat it reminded me of one of my favorite moments from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Watch this video and ponder if Jill and Kim Richards should have dinner sometime.

Number 1: "I'm Here! I'm Sorry"

OK, OK. Besides the camels there was another big moment everyone was waiting for in Morocco: Jill and Ramona's "Come to Jesus" (even if Jesus isn't your sort of thing, says Jill). 

Let's get real for a second. Ramona and Jill need to be friends. They've got oodles of history, and obviously have tender wonderful feelings for each other deep down in there. When Jill was clutching that koala bear a couple of weeks ago I was devastated -- not just because I know Ramona would have clipped it right onto her glass of pinot, but because I want them to be friends. They belong together.

However this was not the fight to reunite them. I had a bad feeling based on the tinkling of Jill's Diet Coke as she walked to Ramona's room and then when Scary Island was brought up, it was all over. I don't think Ramona, or that bed will ever be the same again.

So that's it my little camel riders. Next week we close our trilogy with a supersized episode -- a fact you will delight in because it allows more of this scene, which I beseech you to watch now. I've seen it about 9 times.
