FORGET diamonds.

A mum is really a girl’s best friend.

When Lisa Curry learnt her 20-year-old daughter Morgan had earned a place dancing at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, her next move was easy.

She began packing her bags for the city of love.

Lisa has detailed her planned trip in a four-page spread in the latest New Idea magazine. “Any parent would understand,” she said.

“Morgan’s my baby girl and my plan is to make sure she’s settled in, that she’s happy,” she told New Idea.

“She’s on a 12-month contract to do two shows a night, but she’ll have her mum there if needed any day for the first month while she’s in rehearsal.

“The Moulin ‘family’ is very supportive and she’ll be living with the other girls, but in that time, all she has to do is ring me and I’ll be straight there.”

Morgan will spend the next month rehearsing for the famous cabaret which is known for its risque performances.

Lisa said her daughter’s top would remain on for her part in the show.

However, Morgan’s gymnasics training – with the acrobatic tricks and leg splitting moves the performance house is famous for – would come in handy.

Lisa said her live-in partner, Joel Walkenhorst, will come with her to Paris.

“I could never have left him behind – he’s too much fun,” Lisa tells the magazine..

“All he’ll say is he has a surprise for me when we get there,” she said.

“He won’t tell me anything else, except that it is very exciting.”

Lisa confirmed to the magazine that she and Grant Kenny were “not any closer to divorcing”.

He would be in Paris for Morgan’s opening night.
