LuAnn de Lesseps

The Countess shares why she missed the masquerade, her thoughts on Ramona vs. Jill -- and on Ramona's pinot grigio.

In this week's episode, you see that you can't hide your true self behind a pretty mask.

With photography, you have more chances to get the right shot, so I'd have to say that Ramona is a better photograph model than runway model. I admire Ramon's confidence, and I thought she looked great.

But Ramona lacks self-control, and she doesn't filter what she says. I don't think she's completely out-of-control, but she is becoming increasingly emotional and angry -- especially when she's had a couple glasses of pinot grigio.

I was planning to go to Sonja's masquerade ball as Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind -- until my cold got the better of me. Wild horses couldn't have dragged me out of bed, not even for one of Sonja's fabulous parties.
