Last week I officially launched my memoir, “The Day It Snowed In April” on my life and time with rock star Prince. It was my way of paying tribute to his unique style and music legacy with a purple theme party in Beverly Hills. The event was held at the home of Brad and Tina Hillstrom, who are natives from Minneapolis. I wanted purple carpet instead of red and for everything to be colored purple in honor of Prince. I even dressed little Prince up in a custom outfit so that he could live up to his namesake for photos.

We had so much rain in the days leading up to the event, I wasn’t sure if the weather would clear up? But it seemed like Prince was surely smiling down on us that day as the sun started to shine! Many long time friends enjoyed listening to Stereo Mike Creamer spin some of Prince’s music that he made during my time with him.

Purple love was in the air and even though it was “Fashion Week” and Grammy week, the purple unicorn singer, Justine Skye stopped by looking fabulous, along with America’s favorite letter turner, Vanna White and classic rock singer, Al Stewart.

Guest enjoyed vegan appetizers by Deliteful meals and chef Karen and purple cupcakes from Swirls. We had a purple punch compliments of Purple Haze and Blackhorn imports. A big thank you to publicist Tiffany Ladner and Anolan for all the organization that went into creating such a memorable afternoon. I gave autographed copies of my book in giftbags along with sponsored gifts from ThinEssence, Delightful meals, Parfaire, Green Leaf, and Expert Insight Publishing.  My gorgeous purse was compliments of Grace Nowak and my hair and makeup was done by Emily and the Four Season’s Salon in Westlake, compliments of Yamaguchi. My hair had a shade of purple in it compliments of Louise at Urban Dyebar and I was driven in style to the party in a Rolls Royce compliments of Royal Exotic cars. Special thanks to William Kidston for all the lovely photos and to my Playmate sisters, Deborah Driggs, Barbara Moore and Sandra Taylor for all the love and support!

Half of the proceeds from my book will go to benefit Prince’s charity, #YesWeCode. This is my way of paying it forward and keeping his desire for children’s education in the forefront of his legacy. I thought it was fitting to officially launch “The Day It Snowed In April” in February, the month of love because of the pure love that I know we all shared for Prince and all the amazing music he gave us. You can get “The Day It Snowed In April” now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in Hardcover, Paperback and Kindle and the Audio version will be out soon! If you enjoyed the book, share the purple love and give it as gift and please don’t forget to give me a review on Amazon

This past week has been so beautiful watching the flowers bloom everywhere and enjoying the essence of a real Spring for a change here in southern California. Ronn and I have been very busy with various charity events such as, the Unstoppable gala that he was asked to present at. Unstoppable provides education for children in Africa and has made the difference already is so many children. It was a black tie affair with Ann Archer, Bob Proctor and Dyan Cannon who hosted the gorgeous gala.

Devin and Ronn Moss

Ronn then performed with Peter Beckett at the Canyon Club, as Player, who joined Ambrosia, Stephan Bishop and the one and only Michael McDonald and his wife Amy to benefit a little girl named Darcy who is battling cancer. I think you guys know by now how much we lend our time and efforts to charities that benefit children and animals. The Canyon Club event was a great success and a lot of fun and we were honored to be a part of it.

Player and AmbrosiaAmy & Michael McDonald

Then we got to spend some quality time with Creason and Calee due to their spring break and I managed to do some cooking for them and the band when they came over to rehearse with Ronn for upcoming gigs. The feeling of excitement was in the air all week leading up to the 5 Emmy nominations for our series, “The Bay” which includes “Best Digital Drama Series” and “Best Actor, Kristos Andrews” along with “Best Actresses, Mary Beth Evans, Lilly Melgar and Patsy Pease.”

The Bay Emmy Nominations

The thought of adding two more Emmys to our household is just so surreal! In addition to “The Bay” Emmy nominations, we are in getting ready to shoot more episodes in May and have even more exciting news to share with you guys soon on the amazing progress our Bay family is making! There are many exciting new beginnings for our Bay family and our own family to share with you soon!

Right now we are just excited to be healthy and happy to celebrate this Easter weekend with our wonderful friends, as we look forward to what’s ahead in our future both personally and professionally. Wishing you all a wonderful Passover/Easter weekend!

It seems as if Spring has sprung earlier than usual this year. I’m not complaining because it’s one of my favorite seasons. It’s so nice to see the flowers blooming and the time change has made our days longer. However, Spring for us means more parties to attend and this past week we attended two amazing parties starting out with our dear friend fashion designer, Sue Wong’s fashion show.

IMG_1648

 Sue was kind enough to want to dress me for her big event, but I had no time due to too many business meetings we have been having recently for Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce. So I found my own Sue Wong dress and enjoyed the festivities of her amazing after party that Jawn Star attended with us, along with Gun’s n Rose’s keyboardist, Chris Pitman. Sue always has great entertainment at her beautiful home, “The Cedars,” which can only be described as a work of art from the décor to the history of it.

IMG_1624

 Last night we attended the Mayor’s Mask Ball and got to wear our amazing hand painted and designed masks. Our masks were gifts and made for us by Sergio Boldrin. Sergio is the premiere mask maker in Venice, Italy. This event was for the UNCF and we were happy to catch up with our friend singer, Freda Payne. Also in attendance were the gorgeous Jayne Kennedy and Jeffery Osbourne. Ronn’s mask was a bit scary, but he got tons of compliments on it.

IMG_1644 IMG_1645 IMG_1646

 So now that Spring has sprung and our taxes are done, I’m finally have some time to focus on writing and more creative endeavors. We have some amazing projects forming that I will tell you about soon. Right now our focus is stopping to smell the beautiful roses that are blooming in our yard. I feel like there hasn’t been much down time for us and I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed. It’s important to take the time to spend with family and friends.

IMG_1647-1

 We took the day off to spend with our friend Tina Hillstrom, who was our Matron of Honor. Tina, as most of you guys know loves to socialize and entertain. So I’m happy to share a video of her amazing afternoon lunch that she threw in honor of Ronn’s birthday. She taught her pet rabbits how to walk for their treats and it’s just too cute! So if Spring has already sprung for you, please take the time to stop and smell the roses. If you are still experiencing the harshness of winter, try to stay warm and look forward to Spring and all the beauty it brings!

The past couple of weeks have been rather hectic for us. I spontaneously threw a fund- raiser for the “Songs of Love” charity on Grammy night and it was quite a turn out! However, it wasn’t without tremendous help from our very own publicist from “The Bay,” Tiffany Ladner who spent days on end putting it together.

It was also to launch Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce, which we all are very proud of. We had some amazing sponsors for what we believe will be the first of many Kickass parties! It was held at a lavish private mansion and in honor of seven year old, Neel who has leukemia. As you know by now, “Songs of Love” provide tailor made songs for children who are terminally ill. So we all got to sing the chorus to a tailor made song that Ronn recorded for Neel who beamed with joy.

I came up with the theme “A Taste of New Orleans” and want to make this an annual event for “Songs of Love” in hopes that they bring more smiles of joy to children just like Neel. I think combining Cajun food, good wine and fun people around Mardi Gras is a great way to kick off a Grammy party and I think most of the guests that attended would agree! Ronn performed with Jawn Star and Jimmy Carnelli and we had a host of exotic cars from Cluricane 490 Wine and Spirits club membership who donated a $1300 door prize to some lucky winner to drive one of those babies!

The night was awesome, but I’m rather tired from a entire weekend of charities. We had also attended the Charity For Charity event in Temecula, which was also a lovely evening celebrating the wishes of children with disabilities. Speaking of wishes, I know how much you guys have been wishing for more Ebay items directly from us, so there are tons of things in both of our Ebay stores just in time for Valentine’s Day. More personal things are coming for auction like Ronn’s very own Samsung Notebook phone!

Devronns A Taste of New Orleans Invite

I have some exciting news to share with you guys that will be coming up in our Valentine’s newsletter when you sign up on our DevRonn website. Now that you have been introduced to Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce, it’s time to fire up that grill and have a kickass party of your own!

RoNN's BBQ Sauce hot***** - Version 2

We always like to start the year off with not only becoming more organized, but in seeing what areas of life we can give back to. Our passion for animal rescue, children’s charities and our troops are most near and dear to both Ronn and I. So we look for ways to volunteer our God given talents, time or presence to these causes. Lately, we have been attending so many parties that we have become utterly exhausted from socializing. I have a sort of introverted side to me that needs to be alone at times, even from Ronn. He has a side to him that needs time to devote to his love for music, photography and editing. So we try and give that to each other, as much as possible.

calendar pic copy

It isn’t always possible to have that alone time with each other and time for our passions. So we must make the time and take the time to do so. It’s all part of living a balanced life. Ronn and I strive to do this in every area of our lives. So giving back is just as important. We must protect our children, animals and environment because this is our future. Part of the way DevRonn strives to give back is with our spice, music, time and creativity to encourage others to do the same with their passions.

It is the reason we do a lot of the things we do that makes us happier people in general. I volunteered my time to helping Shelter Hope Pet Shop gain more visibility for the wonderful work they are doing and have done to save the lives of a lot of animals. Our combined efforts created the 2015 Shelter Hope Pet Shop Calendar, which 100% of the proceeds go to the shelter to save even more lives. Ronn and Player gave back to “Songs of Love” on the Home and Family show recently when they recorded their 25,000th song for 11 year old, Amber, who is terminally ill with brain cancer. It warms our hearts to know that just that bit of our time and effort helped make a difference, put a smile or saved a life.

So, this new year has brought some amazing opportunities for me to do something I do well and that’s throwing parties. DevRonn will help host a few fund -raisers this year that will benefit some of our causes such as, “Songs of Love” and Shelter Hope Pet Shop.” It’s also a great time for you to help us by sharing our posts and blog links to help create more awareness for these great causes. No matter how big or small, your voice helps and we welcome you to join us in giving back to our causes or ones of your own. Only by giving back can we truly prosper as a whole.

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.

DSC00046 

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.

 DSC00015

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.

  DSC00054

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!!

So I’m finally feeling the sense of cool change in the weather and thought we needed to do some cool changes to our websites. It has been a while since Ronn’s site has had a makeover and was a way overdue. I felt like most of our websites needed a bit of something and wanted to make sure you are all with us in spirit if not in person on the OZ tour!

 Ronn-Moss_Devin-DeVasquez_0525.jpg

I can’t believe we leave just before Halloween so we will miss all the awesome parties around here, but we will be going to the prestigious Melbourne Cup! Apparently, there is a horse named after Ronn and it’s quite like our Kentucky Derby, so I must now decide on a hat to wear. There is a cool change coming to “The Bay” and we know how much you all are in love with the one and only John Blackwell. As producers on the already hit web series, I can tell you that these will be amazing chapters and there will also be a new music video of Ronn’s single, “Addiction” and all will be out before Christmas!

 Player

Ronn has a cool change coming with his very own “Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce!” And when we say “Kickass” we mean it! This sauce is great with our “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” and we are already addicted to it in our household. It’s also made in Louisiana and has a sweet and spicy flavor that is also Gluten-Free! I hope you guys are enjoying the newest interview on Woman to Woman featuring Shauna O’Brien and her gorgeous organic garden. She and Kelly Emberg have inspired me so much in that area, so we are looking forward to more from our own organic garden. Since our health is indeed the most important thing, I do hope you all stay safe from the flu and that scary Ebola, but please do not live in fear over it!

 Spice.large&small365349

Ronn and I drink warm lemon water each day as a cleanse and natural boost to our immune system. We highly recommend it, especially now. I want to be strong and healthy to get through the OZ tour and I’m hoping to see many of you down under. So get your tickets now! Player is performing at the “Last Chance For Animals” fundraiser Oct 25 and Shelter Hope Pet Shop just released its 2015 calendar featuring me. Both these animal rescue charities are wonderful ways to help our little furry friends find homes, medical care and love. So if you want to help please purchase a calendar or make a tax-deductible donation. I’m hoping cool changes are also coming your way and we hope to bring Player to a city near you soon!

 Darko and DevLCFA

 

Man On Fire is the new single from Player’s “Too Many Reasons” CD and they have just released a new video, which includes scenes from the upcoming 411 movie. Now 411 won’t be completed until next year because Ronn has so many projects in various countries and an upcoming Australian tour for Player. I guess you can say he is truly a “Man on Fire” these days.

Ronn Moss

Player just honored music legend Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues Saturday night and helped raised one million dollars for the mental health of our troops. They were joined by Aussie Guy Sebastian, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr and Taylor Dayne singing Smokey’s most famous songs. Player sang “Tracks of My Tears” and it’s so good that they are now recording it!

Player

This week Ronn will debut as former District Attorney, John Blackwell on the acclaimed series, The Bay as they launch their new season. The Bay Series has been a hit on the Internet and now will have longer episodes and soon will be going to television. John Blackwell may become an ongoing character and the new episode will air May 1st.

Clara & Ronn

We had a lovely Easter celebration at the Playboy mansion with pop artist Michael Moebius and Swedish artist Clara Hallencreutz who is just as gorgeous as she is talented. It was a lovely day filled with sunshine and an exotic petting zoo of animals that included lots of bunnies, miniature ponies and owls. We have just completed our audio version of our humorous relationship book, “My Husband’s A Dog, My Wife’s A Bitch” and it will be up on Amazon in the next few days.

Devin & Sandipix Easter_0001

In the meantime, enjoy the new video of Man On Fire and know that I will keep you posted on Player’s upcoming tour dates, as well as, details of our new adventures around the world!

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since my big 5-0. Last year at this time, as we were planning my event, Kira Lorsch was beginning the brainstorming of the 2014 Thalians event. Kira and I were hanging out have a much needed girls spa when she said, “Devin if you were to pick someone to honor as “Mr. Wonderful”, what icon of music or entertainment industry would you pick, that people of all ages like, now and respect?” I immediately replied, “Smokey Robinson would be great! Everyone loves Smokey.”

Dev & Kira

The seed was planted. And here we are a few weeks away from the big Thalians Smokey Robinson Tribute Concert benefiting UCLA Operation Mend at the House of Blues Sunset Strip on Saturday April 26th.  You won’t want to miss the Smokey Robinson Tribute. I mean there are music legends and then there’s Smokey Robinson! His name is synonymous with Motown. “Shop Around,” “I Second that Emotion,” “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “My Girl,” and “Tracks of My Tears” are just a few of his amazing hits!

Kira LorschPlayer

On Saturday April 26th, Smokey will be honored by the longtime mental health charity, The Thalians who have been around  forever. Debbie Reynolds founded it and this will be a star studded event! A stage full of musical artists will perform Smokey songs for Smokey himself! PLAYER will perform “Tracks of My Tears,” along with other performers that include, Guy Sebastian, Taylor Dane, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Natasha & Cheech Marin, Florence LaRue of The 5th Dimension, Joy Enriquez and Bobby Arvon with musical director Todd Schroeder and the Thalians Orchestra plus some surprise guests! (Sorry but I”m sworn to secrecy.)

Last night we had the honor of participating in a wonderful charity called, “Songs of Love.” It was their first west coast gala and “Songs of Love” is a special cause because they create tailor made songs for children with terminally ill diseases. Everyone one there was touched by the effort that is put into each song created for a child and we all got to participate in recording one ourselves for a child named, Logan.

DSC00006 DSC00037 frank stallone-2

Amazing musical performances by Frank Stallone, JC Love & Player, Amanda Steinberg, Blu Cantrall and Alana and Those Fine Gentlemen made the evening extra special. Player now wants to donate “No More Rain” as the theme song to this charity and shoot a music video with many of these special children in it.

Image 5-1 IMG_5730 ronn peter.1

My pals, Brad & Tina Hillstrom, Keiko Noah and Peggy & Micah Tanous were there to lend their love and support. We all had a wonderful time and intend to do more to help creator John Beltzer continue his lovely mission. “Songs of Love” have now written over 24,000 songs for terminally ill children and these songs are given to the child as a double dose of medicine. They were featured on 60 Minutes and formed in New York almost 18 years ago by John Beltzer.

DSC00005 DSC00015 IMG_7457

Writer, producer, director, Nick Vallelonga was the master of ceremonies and put this first west coast gala together and we thank him for his wonderful efforts and including us in such a worthy cause. Although we have participated in several worthwhile charities, we think “Songs of Love” is a perfect fit for Player and look forward to helping to write more songs for these children.

Slumber party

I had a slumber party with several other Playmates from the 1980s celebrating the 50th birthday of Playmate Alana Soares thrown by her sister Leilani Soares.   We had such a great time laughing and telling past stories with Playmates, Ava Fabian, Cathy St. George, Kimberly Paige, Roberta Vasquez, Lynn Austin and Debi Johnson. Some of these girls I hadn’t seen in decades and few of them flew in from other states just to surprise Alana.

Ava & Leilani DSCN0042 Alana's cake DSCN0022

There is a sorority like sister bond that goes with girls who have posed for Playboy, at least from our era and it felt like we had gone back in time except for talking about men and parties, we now talk about kids and health. We giggled so much that I had to take a nap before heading to the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge to meet famed photographer Terry O’Neill and artist Michael Moebius for dinner.

Me. Terry O'Neil & Keiko

Terry O’Neill was the first photographer to photograph Sir Elton John, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, so Ronn was very excited to meet him and we are attending an exhibition of his work this week at the Mouche Gallery in Beverly Hills. Terry was also married to actress Faye Dunaway and now lives in London, so the history alone is exciting to Ronn because as you know he loves photography, music and Ronn’s father was from England.

We are catching up on so many projects before we leave for the Player and Yacht Rock Revue rock cruise to the Bahamas this week. And I will not be taking my computer or be online so you guys will just have to miss us for a few days. When we return I am finalizing a documentary I am producing on the pinup from a pinup’s point of view and Player will perform at a wonderful charity called “Songs Of Love.”   

 

Devin


Songs of Love is special because musicians write individual songs for children with terminally ill diseases. Watch the 60 minutes video above for more information or click on the invite if you’d like to attend or donate to this wonderful cause.  Check out the newly redesigned makeover of my personal website where you can find this blog and everything else on me all in one place. Special thanks to our web designer Gea who is now working on a redesign of Ronn’s site as well. 

Songs of Love Invite

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, love is in the air and we are celebrating it with KISS, Mel Gibson and Tom Jones for a benefit concert at the House of Blues. My pal Tina Hillstrom has been working for months putting this fundraiser together and it will be night to remember for sure. The benefit will be televised and is for Mending Kids. 

This wonderful organization brings surgery to kids in need of it around the world. Love is in the air for us as well as we release our humorous relationship book entitled, “My Husband’s A Dog, My Wife’s A Bitch” just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a funny look at relationships from our point of view and you will surely laugh alot reading it. I got the idea a couple of years ago to do this since I trained Ronn to make me cappuccinos every morning and joked that you must train a man like a dog. Ronn came up with the title and wrote his point of view of which he just showed me a few weeks ago. I laughed so hard I cried, so we hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing it. Our first autographed copy is now up for auction on Ebay. Ebooks and audio books are coming soon!

My Husband's A Dog, My Wife's A Bitch

Love was in the air this past weekend when we joined former Housewife of Orange county stars Peggy and Micah Tanous for a weekend of wine tasting in Temecula as we joined them for the event, “Charity For Charity.”

2014 is off to a great start for us as we each use our God given talents and start painting our artistic endeavors. Ronn kicked off this year with the Yacht Rock Revue boys at the House of Blues and did a new Ronn’s Garage on them. He got a new camera and will be taking some killer pictures of me for some artistic endeavors of my own. 

 

Seems like more and more producers are contacting me for future film roles. I have a drama and a possible psychological thriller for this year that I may do. There is also that relationship book that Ronn and I are trying to get out to you by Valentine’s Day! We have the upcoming Thalian’s charity event honoring Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues with Player in April and that cruise to the Bahamas next month with Player and the Yacht Rock Revue. 

Devin & Kira at Yacht Rock concert

Some other artistic endeavors include my upcoming partnership in opening a fashion and modeling school with a renowned Italian designer. I may also be the reporter for red carpet events for the fashion channel and may even do some speaking engagements around the world. Since I won’t be plagued with anymore illness and hope to have lots of energy; my future artistic endeavors will include more travel, writing, appearances, acting, producing and maybe even some modeling. Oh and let’s not forget cooking!

I am thrilled to be a part of “American Food Battle” in Finland and that should air next month. More livestream videos are coming from me in this area, as well as, DevRonn chats and Woman To Woman interviews. 

Angie Everhart

Right now, Ronn is reading scripts and planning the upcoming 411 movie projects, which is now a trilogy. Angie Everhart is his sexy co-star and the second 411 will film in Italy. So he’s trying to get all of his projects for this year scheduled to block out time to focus on his directorial debut with these 411 films. 

We re planning to go to the Netherlands, Australia and hopefully back to Finland and Italy in the coming months for various projects that are formulating. And I’m proud to see my brother and pop pinup artist Michael Moebius doing so well with his artistic endeavors. Seems he’s got all of Hollywood interested in his art now including, Rhianna, Paris Hilton and of course Playboy. 

Michael Moebius

I’m almost recovered from my surgery and slowly getting back to my normal routine. I am producing a documentary this year also on the Playmate in honor of Playboy’s 60th birthday and will start producing a documentary on Player later this year! So stay tuned for much much more from DevRonn and many other surprises!

 

Last night Ronn and I attended the annual Thalians Christmas party held at the Bel Air Country club.  It was our second appearance and a special evening for “Player” who performed a few songs to kick off what is coming in 2014.  Hosted by Ruta Lee and Kira Lorsch, the Thalians has been honoring all of Hollywood for 60 years now. They raised over 1 million dollars for their event at the Playboy mansion that honored Hugh Hefner and will now honor the one and only Smokey Robinson at the “House of Blues” on April 26th. Player is proud to be a part of the headlining acts that will pay tribute to Smokey’s legendary songs.

The Thalians has been giving proceeds to help the mental health of our troops and is committed to this cause that enables our troops to heal in both mind and body. They have honored stars like Clint Eastwood, Sammy Davis Jr and Lana Turner in the past 60 years and are now looking to honor young Hollywood in the future. This prestigious and generous charity is what makes Hollywood the unique and powerful club that they are and we are proud to be a part of them.

I was happy to see my dear friend, Mary Ann Mobley there last night, along with Cheech Marin and Kerry Gordy who will also be celebrating with us on April 26, 2014 as Player headlines in honor of Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues. I can’t wait for that evening will be one night to remember and it just may be televised!

We had an absolute blast at the first annual Heroes Awards Dinner held at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City. Our amazing and generous friends, The Cusumano Family were honored for their contributions to our wounded vets. Actor/musician Gary Senise from CSI/NY rocked the house with his awesome band and my always life of the party friend, Tina Hillstrom joined us and danced the night away, looking fabulous in her very own, Wannawear line. 

Caroline & Mike CusumanoDevRonn

Ronn as most of you know, always looks amazing in a tux and I had an excuse to wear an evening gown. Since we recently celebrated Veterans Day, I thought it was fitting to have such a terrific charity event at this time of the year. It reminds us all of how much our troops have sacrificed for our country. We met Nathan who lost both is legs, but still has a wonderful fighting spirit for life. He is a real life, Lt. Dan and it’s a privilege to have met him. 

Tina, Caroline & DevinAmy Dugan & Tanner Cusumano

This was the first Heroes awards dinner, but I”m certain not the last and since alot of our troops are starting to come home, it’s important to help integrate them into society and make them feel at home. The Goodwill gala was truly a first class event that I hope with bring joy to our Thankful hearts each and every year by helping our troops. Please visit http://www.goodwillsocal.org/2013-goodwill-gala-for-heroes for more info on how you can help be a part of this worthy cause.

Ronn & Mike.Gorgeous gowns

This week Ronn and I are preparing for our first ever autograph show together at the http://www.supermegafest.com/. I did this show many years ago and look forward to seeing alot of our east coast fans. They have a great after party of musical performances and are doing a tribute to the Beatles music, so this should be one fun show! Who knows maybe Ronn will join in?  After Boston we will journey back to our second home, Italy where Ronn is doing another campaign with Katherine Kelly Lang. So we won’t be home for Thanksgiving this year, but our hearts are indeed very Thankful for all our blessings. It was also great to do our DevRonn Chat on Livestream with you all before we left for this event. We hope to do these kinds of chats more often!

I was asked to speak at an animal rescue event yesterday that had a Mad Hatter theme. So Alice In Wonderland came out to greet us on the red carpet with friends Regina Russell and Frankie Banali. Sky Valencia put on the event for St. Martin’s charity that helps move homeless neglected animals into no kill shelters until they can find loving happy homes. With over 8 million animals that are put to death each year in the United States alone, it’s facilities like St. Martin that help raise funds to help these innocent creatures find love and affection.

It was also great to see my dear gal pal Donna Spangler there who is always rescuing animals. She has a huge heart of gold and we need more people like her in the world to open their hearts and educate others to over breeding and the over population of pets that are neglected, abandoned and abused. This is part of the reason I wanted to do something to help this great cause for my 50th birthday and teamed up with Shelter Hope Pet Shop to do just that with Player performing on June 3rd. So please know that every little bit helps these poor innocent animals get the help and care they need to survive in this world. I hope you will join us in our quest to bring this staggering numbers down with your support.

Ronn & Frankie 

Me

I love this time of the year when the flowers are blooming and summer in on the horizon, but it always gets so busy with events, parties, movie screenings and BBQs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining because I love having a full life, it’s just the beginning of being a busy bee and it’s already started for us. Ronn is a busier bee than ever with Player rehearsals for the upcoming June 3rd charity event at the Canyon Club in honor of my big 50th birthday. I have so many girlfriends flying in from Louisiana, Texas, Chicago and New Jersey who are staying with me, so we will have a full house the weekend before to celebrate. We have quite an interesting guest list of people coming to the event, so it should be a terrific evening!  Putting together an event like this one is time consuming and requires every detail to be attended to in advance. I want everyone to have an excellent time and have Shelter Hope Pet Shop raise alot of money to save as many animals as possible in the next year. They saved over 400 last year!

In addition to planning this event, I’ve made some changes to the 411 website and haven’t announced Ronn’s leading lady yet because there are some scheduling issues to deal with due to other offers that Ronn has been receiving, and we are trying to fit everything in. Ronn will also be touring this summer with Player for the US Sail Rock tour with other artists such as, Orleans, Christopher Cross, John Ford Coley and Firefall. So he’s is going from one event to touring to filming and there are no breaks in between.

images-3images-4PLAYER

As you know, we are also going to Italy in mid June for the Taormina Film Festival in which he doing a speaking engagement that he must prepare a presentation for. And there’s always Ronn’s Garage to edit and film, so my dear wonderful hubby is a busy busy bee. I’m also working on a new website devoted to everything that women love called, woman to woman. I will feature amazing women in all areas that we women want to see such as fashion, health and beauty. So see I’m a busy bee too, but I also want to try and have some fun!  So I think as busy bees it’s going to be a great fun filled summer that I for one am looking forward to and I will try and keep you updated as usual on things as they progress!

I found out yesterday that my book, “True Age, Timeless Beauty” was entered on the Elit Awards.  My publisher entered the book and it won the gold award in the sexuality/relationships category. The Elit Awards is for digital books and there’s a gold, silver and bronze award in each category of different genres. This award will provide me with a certificate and stamp for my website as one of the winners for 2012. I’m very grateful to have received this award and happy so many of you are benefiting from this book.

Everyday is a challenge in relationships for we must all work at them in some way. Whether they are love relationships or friendships, relationships are important to our overall growth as a human being. I certainly try to be in gratitude each and every day for all the blessings in my life such as my amazing husband, great health, good friends, a loving home and prosperity. When we have our lives in balance it’s easy to see where we need to place our energy and focus and giving back to others is part of being in gratitude.

My goal for putting together the PLAYER concert around my birthday is to give back and I chose Shelter Hope Pet Shop as the charity to give to because they are so unique. The only animal rescue center in a mall with over 400 dogs adopted in one year, shows their passion for saving animals and finding them good homes. The poor homeless animals need our help and having been a foster child in my own life, I know what they are feeling. The need to have someone love them is all they want in this world. 

IMG_2103

So please go to the Shelter Hope Pet Shop and take a look a their website and see all the wonderful work they are doing to get these animals adopted. They specialize in dogs and rabbits and no one cares more about finding good homes for them then Shelter Hope Pet Shop. I’m in total gratitude to be a part of such a wonderful cause and looking forward to seeing many of you at the PLAYER concert on June 3rd to benefit this wonderful charity. Remember your ticket to the PLAYER concert is tax deductible and you will receive a letter from Shelter Hope Pet Shop  for this. My birthday is just icing on the cake!

I had a lot of fun at “Hooters” last weekend doing an autograph book signing for the rescue center, “Shelter Hope Pet Shop” which has rescued over 400 pets in one year. My dear friend Kira Reed Lorsch joined me as we pre celebrated Easter weekend with some adorable pups. Shelter Hope Pet Shop is the only rescue center located in the Janns market center in Thousand Oaks. I want to thank everyone who came out to visit us and share the photos and videos from that day with you! Visit Shelter Hope Pet Shop for more info.

Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning 2013

 

Devin's Kickass Cajun Seasoning
Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning

As we kick off a brand new year and almost five years of Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning, I’m happy to know that so many of you love our spice! Most of you know we created the spice because of my love for Cajun cooking and my home state of Louisiana. Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning was created especially to help the city of New Orleans recover from the devastation of hurricane Katrina and we give part of the proceeds directly to help that effort. Last year we gave $14,000 to Brad Pitt’s charity, “Make It Right” who is directly helping New Orleans rebuild ecological housing. This year we hope to top that and with your help I’m sure we can exceed that number as New Orleans continues to rebuild. However, our spice doesn’t just benefit New Orleans, it benefits any other natural disasters that has happened in our country such as, hurricane Sandy in New York recently. We want to be known as the spice that gives back.

 

Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning and Cajun Cookin

In addition to Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning, I created the cookbook, “Cajun Cookin” with a variety of not only Cajun recipes, but appetizers, soups, salads, stews and meats to use with our spice because it’s simply great on everything. Most of our customers actually use the phrase, “We use it on everything.” That’s no exaggeration because I know we do and have for nearly five years now. Our Cajun spice is lower in sodium than any other Cajun seasoning that I know of and has no MSG. I created that way because I was tired of what was in the supermarkets. Most Cajun spices were way too salty and did contain MSG. So our spice is my original recipe that I perfected for that reason. It’s got alot of flavor and a bit of a kick, but not to spicy, so it really does just make you the cook you didn’t know you could be just by adding it to any dish. My “Cookin Cajuncookbook is now available in an ebook that you can download to your ipad or computer and has lots of wonderful photos to go with nearly every dish.

 

 

The Future of Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning

 

 


When we created  Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning  we wanted to start small and grow organically with a product we could be proud of. Since Ronn and I are in the entertainment business, we knew nothing about the food industry, which was a bit of an education in the process of creating “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” and took nearly two years to formulate. My goal is to have it one day be in the supermarkets  and available all over at a cheaper price. It’s very hard to compete with brands that are household names and already on the shelves in supermarkets, however I will not give up on this dream because I know we have a “kickass” product pardon the pun. Most of you who have tried it know what I’m talking about and those of you who haven’t, well you are missing out. We use it for BBQs, in the summer and I love to give it to our new friends and have them come back and rave about how much they love it on everything. So we believe the future oDevin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning is very bright and with your continued help will be the a spice that makes a difference!

Although Thanksgiving is an American holiday, the meaning behind it is universal. We in America give thanks for the freedoms our country enjoy today because of what our ancestors fought for.

We try and remember our loved ones and the traditions that are passed down from generation to generation. We create circles of family and friends around dining on the traditions of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie as the fireplace warms our home and heart to what being alive to celebrate another Thanksgiving means.

Each Thanksgiving that we get to have with our friends and family becomes more precious with each passing year and traditions old and new become revered and passed on for a new generation to carry. This Thanksgiving remember to give to those less fortunate if even a small way and remember all the wonderful things you have to be grateful for.

Today Ronn and I went to the Shelter Hope Pet Shop to celebrate their one year anniversary of saving the lives of so many animals this past year. Many vets and senior citizens have adopted from the Shelter Hope Pet Shop and have found  great therapy and companionship by their adoptions.

We then went to celebrate the birthday of Ronn’s first wife Janet. I happen to adore Jannie as we call her. She is a wonderful, beautiful lady and has known Ronn for almost 40 years.  Many of Ronn’s childhood friends were there and it was a beautiful celebration of lifelong friendship, amazing food and fun company.

That’s really what life is all about, isn’t it? Friendship, food and fun company is something to treasure each and every day. Giving thanks is about sharing who you are and what you love with people you love to be around. And as life gets shorter, that gets more and more precious.

I do know I feel a deep sense of gratitude for each day that I’m healthy and happy and I want to feel that way as much as possible in this lifetime. There is so much to feel grateful for each and every day. Even though some days are maybe not as great at times as others, life is a meant to be joyful and adventurous.

Ronn and I are deeply grateful for all of you who have loved and supported us through huge transitions this year. I for one am grateful for my health and the well-being of my family and friends. We are grateful for the opportunities that are presenting themselves every day with such vigor and excitement. And we are grateful for the love that we share, a love so rare and so deep that it bursting to come out and play.

That’s exactly what we are doing now. Playing, enjoying life and spreading our love and thanks to all of you. Through, music, books, Ronn’s Garage, charity, food and travel we hope you will continue to follow us on this journey called life.

The Groom & Dev

There was a mist in the air over the weekend. One that smelled of rain and gave us a breeziness that said fall was here finally. At least that’s what we thought? Ronn and I anxiously prepared for our love filled weekend.

Don Diamont, Ronn & Adam Gregory
Ronn & Jackie

We were invited to Scott Clifton’s wedding, which promised less drama than one of Liam Spencer’s weddings. And then there was the annual charity event, “The Love Ride.”

But first we kicked off our weekend with Scott and his bride Nicole’s outdoor setting nestled in the woods with a babbling water fall. They recited their reasons why their love was perfect underneath a gigantic tree and tea lights. Their vows were filled with humor and adoration that told us all they were meant to be in so many ways.

We felt honored to be a part of it and it was lovely to see some of B&B’s cast such as, John McCook, Jacquline MacInnes Wood, Kim Matula, Don Diamont and Adam Gregory.  Scott and Nicole were in true wedding bliss as we dined on Prime Rib and Salmon in the indoor/outdoor setting.

I chatted most of the evening with Jackie aka Steffy who will be an upcoming guest on Ronn’s Garage. That girl is always amazing me and don’t let the good looks fool ya, she’s one smart cookie! Jackie loves, “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” and can’t wait to cook something Cajun with me since one of her beaus is from Baton Rouge!

DevRonn

Ronn and I had to get up early the next day for the annual, “Love Ride” and hop on his Harley hoping it wouldn’t rain. It seems there is this love/hate thing for rain. We wish for it in southern California, but only when we’re not driving in it, especially on a motorcycle! Lucky for us it was a very pleasant ride to the Harley dealership in Glendale where the ride takes place.

Antonio, Ronn, Winsor & Lorenzo

More hunky B&B cast members were on hand like, Winsor Harmon, Lorenzo Lamas, and Antonio Sabato Jr all ready to ride. They joined Jay Leno onstage to kick off the event before a massive crowd as Lorenzo sang the Star Spangled Banner.

Wally, Lori, Ronn & Devin

Our pals Wally and Lori Crowder joined us as hundreds of bikes started their journey to the park where the event took place. The sun started to shine as we went back to typical sunny southern California weather and our hopes for fall fell back into a brief faded memory. But the love that filled our weekend will be memories that will last forever.

Devin & Lori

Ronn and I attend the 3rd annual Celebrity Gun Shoot in Ojai this past weekend. Our friends at Associated Television put on a first class event as always. It was held at the beautiful Ojai Valley Inn and Spa and we were treated to an amazing awards dinner, in which Ronn First Place in the Handguns. I feel like I’ve improved very much since our first year attending. I managed to get several shots in the Sporting Clays and Trap competitions. “Housewives of Orange County” star Peggy and Micah Tanous were on our team again, along with “Falling Skies” newcomer Peter Shinkoda who was a very good marksman just like his TV character. We hung with old team mates Frank Stallone and Robert Carradine and I was happy to see Kira and Bob Lorsch attend for the first time.  Laura McKenzie who is always terrific and her husband David, daughter Elizabeth and their team at Associated Television makes us feel at home and part of their wonderful family unit with all their events and we cherish them dearly. This event benefited the families of the our military and volunteers of the NRA were on hand to make sure we were all safe. I plan to get some practice in before next year!

On August 23, 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and devastated that region with 175 mph winds that left over 1836 people dead and cost over $100 billion dollars in damages. Many people lost their homes and relocated. This was one of the deadliest and costliest natural disasters in US history. Since then many people have been able to return to their home town thanks to the efforts of the “Make It Right” foundation and Brad Pitt’s passion for New Orleans. The first star studded fund raiser for “Make It Right” was hosted in New Orleans by Brad Pitt, Randy Jackson and Ellen DeGeneres. They showed us the progress that is being made with Green energy efficient homes that has enabled many native Louisianians to return home. This amazing technology has helped many other displaced people all over the world with these kinds of homes and I’m happy to be a part of this with “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning.” It seems the region is coming back and will be stronger and better as time goes on. We are very proud to have participated in the first gala for “Make It Right.” All the performances by Sheryl Crow, Rhianna, Snoop Dog, Seal and Kanye West were amazing and the show will be broadcast later. The gala was totally first class and one of the most fun charity events we have ever attended. Ronn chatted with Portia DeRossi as I re connected with Sean Penn and Randy Jackson, who is from my home town of Baton Rouge. We had the best Cajun food prepared by Emeril and surprise appearances by Football hero Drew Brees and Dr. Drai. There was an open bar and the party went on all night long, so needless to say we didn’t want to miss any of it. By the end of the evening, Ronn was hanging with Jamie Foxx and Rhianna, while I partied with my home girls. One of my first college roommates came to visit me from Baton Rouge. We had not seen each other in 24 years! But that’s okay, because those are my life long friends that I cherish and we know it doesn’t matter if we don’t see each other, we are always there in each other’s heart. That’s how we are in Louisiana. If you are a friend, you are family and the passage of time just doesn’t matter.  It made me so proud to see how much New Orleans loves Ronn as walked around the French Quarter listening to Jazz, stopping for Beignets and eating lots of gumbo.  The culture is still there and the pride of Louisiana is still there, hell it’s a miracle that the French Quarter is still there! When Katrina hit New Orleans I cried and I wanted to do something to help rebuild it, thus “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” was born. I’m happy to see there are others that feel as passionate about New Orleans as me and it’s amazing to the see the progress when we all do a little bit to help. We now have several people helping us get our spice into restaurants and supermarkets. It made us so happy to be able to  donated 1000 spices to the gala’s gift bags and we helped to raise over $14,000!  That was small compared to other sponsors like Google, but we will most certainly be back next year bigger and better. Thank you to everyone who helped and participated.  We are the spice that’s “Making It Right” in New Orleans so please spread the word and help us to continue.


Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning is now a part of Brad Pitt’s charity A Night To Make It Right that is helping to rebuild homes in New Orleans. On March 10th, Brad is hosting a star studded gala with Ellen Degeneres for the “Night To Make It Right Gala.” Performers include, Rhianna, Sheryl Crow, Randy Jackson and Seal. We are donating 1000 spices and have helped raise $10,000 so far. So we want to kick this awesome event off with a bang and get you guys involved to help us help New Orleans come back stronger than ever! We know this is just the start of something big and we know how much you love Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning, so now you have a chance to win a case of spices or a ticket to the “Night To Make It Right” after party, or a luncheon with Ronn and I!!

Linda & Ronn

We attended a wonderful charity event in Temecula’s beautiful wine country to benefit Charity for Charity. This local charity gives a wish to a local family who has a terminal disease. We were invited by my gorgeous “Housewives of Orange County” star Peggy Tanous and her her husband Micah. Ronn really made Linda a happy woman as Linda is in stage 4 of breast cancer and was this year’s recipient.

Micah & Peggy Tanous & DevRonn

We all had a lovely evening and then went wine tasting at the local vineyards the next day .Although we were granted a balloon ride over the vineyards, it was impossible for me to get Ronn out of bed, so I had to just settle for all the wine I could drink. One of the local vineyards was “Cougar” and they are known for a wine called, “The Pink Cougar” which is a sweet Cabernet. Peggy and I couldn’t resist taking a pic in front of their sign. Ronn and I also discovered the best hamburgers just outside of Temecula in a little town called, Winchester.  We had a fun weekend filled with good food, friends and wine and we will happily participate in this wonderful charity again.

This past weekend spent in West Palm Beach was sheer heaven. We were invited to attend the 24th annual “Boys and Girls Club” charity event by our host Jim Glidewell, who was introduced to us by our dear friends Wally and Lori Crowder. Jim flew us in his private plane along with a few other couples and we stayed on his yacht, “Ohana” as we attended the various events all weekend long. We had a lovely cocktail party Thursday  evening and got to tour the other yachts in the harbor and was treated to a spectacular finale of fireworks. Now being on board a yacht is really quite an experience, since the crew pretty much caters to your every possible need 24/7. This beautiful 157′ floating palace has everything that an amazing first class hotel could have!  The boys spent a lot of time having cocktails and smoking cigars, while the girls hung out drinking tea and chatting.  Since Friday was 11/11/11 and Veterans Day, Ronn and I took a moment to meditate on our blessings and our Veterans and enjoyed the rest of the day getting to know our new friends. We then dressed up for a roaring 20s party that evening in held in the amazing Flagler Museum.

The first thing we saw when we walked in was this woman dressed in a red dress with this extremely long red train that went down the stairs.

Our last day was spent on the dock where a clambake of lobster, clams, steak and fried oyster po-boys were served. Later that evening we had our grand finale to this amazing weekend at Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Largo for a black tie silent auction dinner with the “Doobie Brothers” as our entertainment. Needless to say, it all felt like a dream. Perfect weather, food, company and entertainment. I don’t think we will ever forget what we did the weekend of 11/11/11 and will always be in gratitude for our Vets and this glorious weekend spent in West Palm Beach. Thank your Wally, Lori, Jim and Parvina for inviting us along. Truly an amazing memory for us.

Since we returned from PLAYER performing in Vero Beach it’s been non-stop for Ronn on B&B and me so I haven’t had time to blog until now. We had so much fun and want to thank our dear friend Robin Krasny for taking such good care of us with healthy food, wine and video taping the band. Ronn will be editing that footage soon to post something for you guys to see. I also want to thank my amazing friend Laura Poe for the wonderful pics she took onstage. It was nice to see some of my dearest friends like JoNell Gay and her daughter Isabelle who was born on my birthday. It had been years since I’d seen them, so it was very special for me.

Rob Math, Peter Beckett, Ronn Moss

The show was fantastic and we hope to have many more PLAYER concerts coming up! Our anniversary was certainly a memorable one. Thanks to Robin we stayed at the beautiful Vero Beach Hotel and Spa overlooking the beach.

Ronn, me, Peter and Eden

We hung out with Peter Beckett and Eden Ayers and had a fun time until I slipped and fell and hit my chin in the pool, ouch! I was bruised and sore for a few days and jaw hurt badly. Luckily I’m feeling better now, but I couldn’t chew on one side  of my mouth for a few days. The other day Ronn and I attended  a fundraiser for the Humane Society. An invite from our friends Bob and Kira Lorsch.  Many thanks to Ms. Lois Pope who gave 1 million dollars to such a worthy cause.

Lois Pope, her son, Ronn and me and Kira Lorsch

Remember I did a bunny PSA for them. I  was happy to hear that many bunnies have gotten adopted since.  Yesterday I did my first personal appearance in 5 years and saw some wonderful Playmates there, such as Cathy St. George, Corinna Harney, Ava Fabian and Teri Harrison.  It was so nice to see many of you again after so many years and I do hope to do more in future if my schedule permits. Ronn was so sweet to help me set up my booth and lug all my merchandise, as well as, take photos with me and some of you guys. I’m now resting today and catching up on various writing projects. Looking forward to fall and cooler weather so that I can cook some of my soup recipes! check out this PLAYER video. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/user/devronnfilms?feature=mhum#p/a/u/0/uLx0Ub9FfAI]

Ronn and I had a blast at the “Senior Prom Revisited” in Palm Springs. PLAYER was a an honored guest and performed a few songs.

All the band members brought their wives along for this charity event and had a blast. Peter even had a good time with Eden Ayers and Charlie Chaplin.

Peter Beckett

My pal Alana Curry and her boyfriend came along and had a blast.

Later we went to the home of Artist Christina De Musee’ who is a very colorful character.

Palm Springs seems to love PLAYER and they will be performing on a regular basis starting in Jan 2011 on Saturday nights.

They are also putting together a tour with America and Little River Band and will be doing the Hollywood Christmas Parade that will air on CBS.

Right now we are working on new cool PLAYER merchandise and will have more news about appearances, maybe in your area, soon!

The band really rocked their last night in Palm Springs and have been asked to perform at a  prestigious country club’s anniversary party in March.  More appearances are sure to be announced  later as they are confirmed.

We would like to graciously thank Bette King productions for taking such great care of us and all the fans who came out to support PLAYER!
