LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn gives us her final thoughts on the Morocco trip and Alex's outburst.

on Jun 9, 2011

I worked very hard to plan that dinner with the staff and I thought it was insulting to the staff and to the other women when the girls didn't show. The girls knew that dinner was at 8 pm without a doubt. Ramona's excuse that she forgot was lame. If they wanted to have dinner in their rooms, that was fine -- but they needed to let me know.

The reason I wanted to speak with Ramona had nothing to do with her fight with Jill. I wanted to talk to her about what the fortune teller said and I wanted her to know that I was there for her because she was obviously upset by the fortune teller's prediction.

I think Jill and Ramona did move past their fight, and it looks like they both have work to do regarding their relationship. I certainly hope they will get past this.

We made one our meal ourselves in Morocco, and we learned how to make the perfect tangine. What was great about this lesson is that we can take our new-found culinary skills back to the U.S. and recreate some of the food magic we experienced in Morocco. Although I wonder how you could make a tangine in a toaster oven, I'm sure that Sonja will figure it out.

I loved the caftan, the Moroccan makeup and they way they put up my hair. I felt like an Arabian Princess and all the women looked beautiful.

The Moroccan people were so gracious and made our trip one to remember. I had hoped for less drama but with seven women in one house, I guess that was too much to hope for. The house was perfection and the camel ride at sunset was certainly something I will never forget.

You'll see us back in New York City next week where the fun continues.
