Home For The Holidays

DSC00028DSC00050

It has been so good to be home and see all of our dear friends during this holiday season. In fact, we have had non -stop holiday parties that we have been attending. Fashion designer Sue Wong had us at her spectacular home for her unbelievable holiday party last week. We enjoyed the Thalian’s holiday gala where Player sang. Player is now recording the 25,000th song for Songs of Love and will appear on “The Home and Family Show” tomorrow. And we enjoyed our dear friends the Cusumano’s holiday festivities.

Being home for the holidays is what we enjoy the most. It’s always so hectic to travel during the holidays that it is our preference. So this holiday season I am just so grateful to be home and sleep in my own bed. I’m grateful for all the love and support you guys have given us this past year during all of the new endeavors.

Right now we are all enjoying the new episodes of “The Bay” and John Blackwell and as producers of this awesome series, we are anticipating some Emmy nominations next year! We are also excited about Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce and just know that the best is yet to come with that as we launch smaller versions of it, along with other Cajun products at DevRonn.

I’m not struggling to get into the holiday spirit after being in Australia during their summer. It took a while to adjust to being back home during a cooler climate and all the holiday festivities to get me into the spirit of it. I still feel so behind on things like cards and gifts this year and plan to do most of my shopping online! Actually, there is nothing I really want Santa to bring me except peace and love from all our wonderful family and friends. Please know how much we appreciate all of you and that we wish you only the most joyous of holiday seasons! I will post a holiday chat on Livestream soon, so if you haven’t joined Livestream please do so to chat live with us! Wishing you holiday blessings!!

Our Aussie Love Affair

 Australia has had an ongoing love affair with Ronn for decades now. It was seen firsthand during his last two solo tours, but magnified greatly during this last month as Ronn and Player toured around OZ. I saw the constantly quest for photos everywhere we went and from young and old, men and women, seems everyone was thrilled to see Ronn and show their love.

That’s what’s so amazing about Australia, the land and people are truly beautiful and it shows in spades. They are polite with a light and happy attitude that says, “No worries mate, everything is alright.” So as we spent our last week enjoying this love affair, we knew we would have to come back to the reality of the fact that it was just a visit. However, the memories will last a lifetime and what memories they have been! Our Aussie love affair is indeed just beginning with new friends that we have made and new adventures we will be having together.

Player has now made a new stamp on the Aussie’s hearts and it was shown in their smiling faces, as they lined up each and every night to greet Ronn and the band for photos. The Aussies have a stamp on our hearts as well. We all enjoyed their hospitality and warmth everywhere we went.

We were all spoiled to great seafood like prawns and oysters and fish and chips. Aussies also take their coffee seriously and their cappuccinos were amazing! There are even institutions dedicated to Baristas and coffee. However, these cappuccinos were strong and would have you hopping around like a Kangaroo if you had too many. I could only have one a day. The tour took us through some northern cities like Coffs Harbour and Twin Towns where we saw the most beautiful beaches, however we didn’t have much time to spend on them due to the hectic schedule of the band.

Ronn usually had press days on the days off, but Peter and Eden got to go further north and enjoy parts of Queensland. We did all make it to the Featherdale Park to see the animals together. And Ronn and I had a beautiful private tour of the Sydney Harbour compliments of designer, Cristina Nipoti and Vesna Perry.

Ronn and I had a hair makeover by fame hairstylist, Alan Buki and I was given an awesome flat iron for my hair by EVY personalized with my name on it. Our tour promoters Roy and Enza Ortuso treated us to some fabulous dinners and did everything to make us all feel at home. Player had the most fabulous crew taking care of them backstage with our tour manager Stu Marks, sound engineer Andrew Troy and Sam the man who made sure the guys were always in tune.

But it was the devotion from the fans that was indeed beautiful to see at each and every performance. They expressed how much they missed Ronn as Ridge Forrester and let him know how much he meant to them. I saw mothers and daughters, grandmothers and husband and wives tell Ronn how much they loved watching him each and everyday for years.

I think it’s safe to say we will be returning to the land of OZ and I for one hope it’s soon!
