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!!

Hanging Down Under

This past week was a hectic one as we scrambled to prepare to head down under for a month. It was crazy busy for us because Ronn was shooting late days on “The Bay” as John Blackwell up until the day before we left home. So we didn’t get much sleep and there was so much to do before we left. I was busy putting the finishing touches to our newly revised DevRonn website in preparation for the launch of Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce. There is still a bit more things I need to finalize before we can start taking orders and I will let you know when that is soon!

 So as we continued to prepare to hang down under for the next month, I started to get excited about how much of an adventure our Australian stay would be for all of us. There are a lot of first time things that we are all doing down under. It will be Player’s first tour and it seems fans are super excited for them to hang down under with them! Ronn and I saw our first soccer game tonight as Sydney won against Mariner. It has been such lovely weather and I could see the excitement building as the friendly Aussies welcomed us with open arms.

 Tomorrow we head down to Melbourne for the elite Melbourne Cup as guests of Emirates Airlines. And then we will meet the band back in Sydney to kick off the tour. The Aussies have been super sweet and they seem to have missed Ronn greatly. The concert is selling out and Ronn has been doing tons of press on a daily basis.  New Idea magazine came out last week and this week Player will go on “The Morning Show” to sing “Baby Come Back” live. It’s so beautiful to see the reaction to fans here in OZ, they are just so genuine and down to earth. I have met so many amazing women and men who have a real admiration for Ronn and who seem super excited to see the concert!

 Baby Come Back is now running in a Toyota commercial and has been for the past three years, so it made sense to kick off this tour down under. There is also a horse named after Ronn running in the Melbourne Cup and as guests of the Emirates Airlines we are proud to be here and looking forward to a great day! So far hanging down under has been nothing but fun and we are having a blast! I know the tour will be a slam dunk kickass fun time for everyone and can’t wait to share lots of pics and videos with you guys! Who knows I may just surprise you with a livestream soon! In the meantime, stay tuned for the launch of Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce and more amazing surprises!!

A Bitch Called Karma

 

Ronn recently said he saw a great saying on Facebook that said, “Karma is only a bitch if you are.” I thought that was a fantastic saying and so profoundly true.  I think you know me a bit better by now and know that I use the word bitch with humor most of time. Since I’m into animal rescue it kinda goes with that and I love to call my husband a dog, affectionately and also with humor. So he sometimes calls me a “bitch.” I know he means it affectionately depending on the tone of his voice.

 

However the phrase, “A Bitch Called Karma” I think has a different meaning and the timing of how karmic things happen and to whom they happen to and why, is what I mean by this phrase.  There has been a lot of that karmic thing happening to many aspects of our lives both professionally and personally due to the choices we make in life.

 

Our decisions and choices play a big part on how karma works in our universe. “You reap what you sew” as the saying goes.  Lately karmic timing has been playing a big part in our lives and the universal magic has been testing us with wonderful lessons. It is during these life lessons that I am feeling most grateful to learn from them and grow my soul. Life isn’t always unicorns and colored lights in a fantasy atmosphere, well maybe sometimes it is.

DSC00020_2 

Life isn’t always about how successful you are in the world’s eyes, because as we know true success comes with happiness from within. This happiness is at it’s greatest when shared with others.  It is sometimes during our greatest challenges that we learn our greatest lessons. And it is sometimes the journey of getting to your biggest goals that is the most exciting.

 

I’ve always had an adaptable personality regarding change. It didn’t matter where I lived or what I did as long as I felt happy and well, I could easily adapt to the change.  Some people cannot do this and live their whole lives in fear of the unknown. How can you know what’s out there if you don’t reach out and explore?

 

It is usually fear holding us back and keeping us safe. Recent career choices have been a lot of trusting our inner gut and the universal energy to guide us. It has led both Ronn and I to sharing more of ourselves with you, and have led Ronn back to his roots with music. The past couple weeks has been hectic because Player’s new drummer has had to learn their whole set of songs and Peter Beckett is a perfectionist when it comes to the music. Ronn loves having the guys over and everyone usually stays overnight because of the long drive for Johnny. So this means lots of male bonding that includes, action movies and of course buckets of wine.

10511205_10203429796082253_8808951499836129072_n

 

I don’t mind because the music these guys make together is magical and I’ve watched the evolution firsthand.  They are all so talented and the music is so good that I never get tired of listening to them. I know our neighbors feel the same way. So I can bet that the upcoming Ramshead concert this Saturday will be most exciting. Women will be throwing their bras and panties to these guys and I can understand why!

 

I will be hanging out with some of my Playmate sisters at the Long Beach Glamourcon and am really looking forward to that. It’s been a long time and it’s okay to be apart sometimes in a marriage. Since we are both working and having fun doing the things we love.

It was a blast as usual to go to Hef’s famous “Midsummer Night Dreams” party. This year party had cirque du solei girls and “Pitbull” as the star entertainment. The party felt more like a gorgeous nightclub this year. It was obviously sponsored by “Patron” and had a more corporate feeling to it rather than the exclusive vibe of going to visit Hef at his home.  Gone are those years never to be seen again. Playboy is now all about the brand. Hell we even got temporary tattoos of gold and silver bunnies on different parts of our bodies that we can’t take off now as a result of that evening! It was great to see a few familiar faces and to run into iconic Playmates like Ola Ray who still looks fabulous and is now blonde!

 

DSC00008_pp

Getting back to that “Bitch called Karma,” I use that phrase to make a point of how things in our lives change sometimes for the best. However, the choices we make and we must make them constantly, can move us forward of backward depending on how we handle others.  Both Ronn and I are extremely straightforward people who try and live our lives better tomorrow than we did today and always with love, respect and gratitude.

 

Rockin & Rollin

10505202_10154313424935096_5059855813795607393_o

We hope you all are having a fabulous summer so far and that your forth of July was awesome! We spent ours at the Playboy mansion and saw Hef’s amazing display of fireworks, and now it’s back to work with a little bit of summer fun in between gigs. Speaking of gigs PLAYER has a couple of awesome gigs you won’t want to miss! Coming up in Atlanta on July 19th, they will be rockin and rollin with those polyester smooth rock boys of Yacht Rock Revue for their big summer blowout at Piedmont Park. Joining them will be Pablo Cruise, Gary Wright and Robbie Dupree so this will be one concert party I am so looking forward to! PLAYER is also doing a concert in Annapolis, Maryland on August 23rd at the Rams Head and you can get your tickets for that one here.

10444687_10203461957086258_8659355781095030406_n

You may also get to see PLAYER make a cameo on Celebrity Wife Swap which will air Tuesday July 22nd on ABC and this is going to be one fun show! I can’t tell you details, but I think you will laugh alot at all the fun we had! Player will be starting rehearsals soon for their upcoming Australian tour  and I can’t wait for that! Get your tickets  for the Aussie tour now!  As you can see PLAYER is rockin and rollin it, and if you haven’t seen them in concert you are so missing out!

Ronn will be rockin and rollin when he shoots a new music video for his single “Addiction” in the next few days and he’s shooting an exclusive for an Australian magazine tomorrow and will be doing a special “Confessions” segment for “The Bay” also. I can’t wait until John Blackwell shoots the new chapter for “The Bay” because he is one bad dude who kicks ass!

A Roaring 20s Party

As we dip into the heat of summer parties, Ronn and I are always up for a good time and getting dressed up is super fun! So when our friends Caroline and Mike Cusumano invited us to their family’s annual summer bash, we were ready to go, especially when it was a roaring 1920’s theme. This was one great party! You were welcomed with champagne at the entrance and everyone was dressed to impressed in their flapper and gangster garb. Cigarette girls passed around jumbo shrimp and a variety of appetizers, specialty drinks included, “Old Fashions”, “Lynchberg Lemonade” and “Peach Martinis.” The buffet dinner included a variety of pastas, salads and lamb chops, while we enjoyed flapper girls doing the Charleston with a live band performing. It surely felt like we went back in time and we enjoyed every minute of it!

DSC00046_pp DSC00055_pp_2

Tina Hillstrom joined us and as always when Caroline, Tina and I get together we have a blast. I felt like this was the topper to my birthday month and one of the best parties I’ve attended this year so far. To my demise, I woke up with a head cold and have been coughing and sneezing ever since, but hey I have great memories of a wonderful finale to my birthday! Although it sucks to have a summer cold, at least it’s not the flu and I’m hoping to be better by for the fourth of July festivities. We have several parties to attend for the 4th, including Hef’s amazing fireworks at the Playboy mansion.

DSC00022 DSC00061_pp_2 EZ0A1254_pp

However it’s not all fun in the sun for us, we do have some work involved. Ronn and I have several upcoming magazine shoots and I’m doing a calendar shoot for Shelter Hope Pet Shop. Ronn is also doing a music video for “Addiction”  and we are preparing for an exciting upcoming trip to Europe. Will give you more details as they firm up. So summer is flying by for us already, but we are indeed having a good time. We hope you have a wonderful and safe fourth of July and that your summer is as much fun as ours without any of the coughing or sneezing.

Birthday Bliss

I seldom celebrate my birthday on my actual birthday. It seems to always be on the weekend before or after, and given the blow out I had for my big 50th last year; it would have been hard to top that, so I didn’t even want to try. However, some of my longtime girlfriends thought we were in dire need of a potluck. Now most of you know by now what my potluck parties are like, as I’ve posted many pictures from my holiday ones. They consist of all girls who bring over yummy dishes to share, so that we can do what girls like to do and chatter, while we drink and eat to our hearts content!

Poltuck girls

My girlfriend Sue, who loves to cook more than me, brought over her spicy chili with tri-tip and someone else brought mac n’ cheese and suggested I try this combo. I must say chili over mac n’ cheese was an addictive combination. Creason and Calee made “Grape Leaves” and other dishes included, summer salads, bow tie pasta with chicken and my favorite, cupcakes!

We whipped up a pitcher of spicy Bloody Mary and a summer Bourbon Smash with peaches, lemonade, orange juice and mint to give everyone a summer buzz. Ronn was the only man allowed because he takes great photos. Potluck parties are for the girls only, but I make exceptions every once in a while. Barbara Moore wanted to bring her dad, so I thought Ronn could use a little male energy to help him out and allowed him to join us also.

Needless to say, the party lasted all day long and it was  fun to spend some great quality time laughing it up with these great gals! I’m lucky to have so many amazing girlfriends. They are beautiful, talented and smart, but most of all they have the best hearts and are all so loving and giving. I admire and adore them all! So nothing please me more than to spend the day catching up with each of them.

I got amazing gifts too! A gorgeous bath robe from Barbara, a Kate Spade purse and lavender/Rosemary scented dispenser from Caroline, a beautiful orchid from Joanne, flip flops from Kim, a handmade knitted hat and waist purse from Lisa, the perfect summer dress in my favorite colors from Sue, candles, body lotion & a summer beach towel from Blanca, the hottest fashion tote bag from Mona, a gorgeous picture frame from Eden and the funniest cards galore!

I’ve never had such a perfect day spent with such lovely friends, so I’m feeling extremely blissful and happy today basking in the aftermath of it all. The birthday bliss continues with other girlfriends treating me to spa days and the celebrating will also continue this weekend. I think the older we get and the more people we know it surely becomes a birthday month of celebration.

DevRonn

Thank you guys  for all the amazing birthday wishes throughout the day! It was hard to see them all because they kept coming in, so if I missed saying thank you personally, please forgive me. But, know that I deeply appreciated seeing them. Now I have a present for you guys with a special announcement! Ronn and I will make a rare guest appearance on the ABC prime time show, “Celebrity Wife Swap” which will air July 22nd! We swapped with General Hospital‘s Prince Nicolas Cassadine aka Tyler Christopher and I think you guys may just get to see Ronn make his now infamous “Ronnacinno” among other surprises! This will be one funny show that you won’t want to miss out on! I’ve got other surprises to share with you guys, but I think I’ll wait until the next blog, since this one was filled with so much bliss!

Man On Fire

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.

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!

PLAYER Honors Smokey Robinson

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.)

Spring Forward

I can’t believe spring is here already, seems this year is flying by so fast! I love spring, seeing all the flowers bloom and preparing for the warmth that summer will bring. It makes me want to entertain and so we are having our first party of spring this Sunday to kick off the new season of “Game of Thrones.” Peter Beckett got us hooked on that series and I promised I’d kick it off with a nice shindig of a party.

So I’m cooking some Cajun grub and having a few friends over who are also die hard “Game of Throne” fanatics to drink some ale and see who gets the ax in the first episode. We are also springing forward with so many new and exciting projects. Seems many countries are missing seeing Ronn on their TV sets since he’s no longer Ridge Forrester and we are formulating new and interesting things on a daily basis with many different countries.

Player

Player is excited to do a tour in Australia this November and 13 shows are now locked down with more being added that could take us into New Zealand for December. There will also be new Player merchandise available especially for this “Too Many Reasons” tour and I couldn’t be more excited, so Player Angels get ready to rock!  I visited Melbourne back in 2005 when Ronn did the berry juice commercial, so this will be a such a treat for me to explore OZ and really spend some quality time there. The new “Man On Fire” music video with previews from the upcoming 411movie will be released soon so you can get more excited about the upcoming tour!

There is also a movie in the works with Italy’s best comedy writers who is tailoring a script especially for Ronn. I can’t tell you details on that yet, but it’s going to be quite comical and I will also be in it. We have a TV show in the works for Finland and South Africa and there is a possibility of a campaign in the Netherlands. However it’s all being formulated so I can’t give you dates of when we will be in those places just yet.

Ronn

Player is also making an appearance on a popular TV show next week and I can’t tell you what show just yet, but I know you will be excited and will give you details as soon as I’m allowed. They are also looking forward to singing, “Tracks of My Tears” to honor the one and only Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues April 26. This will be a killer show that will include, Taylor Dane and Chaka Khan among others that will make this an exciting televised event to benefit the “Thalians.

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

Ronn is joining the cast of the Emmy nominated webseries, “The Bay” next week when they introduce a new character to the drama. We are also putting the finishing touches on our audio book, “My Husband’s A Dog, My Wife’s A Bitch” and I’m so pleased you are laughing and enjoying the printed version and Ebook. We are planning to release a book of Ronn’s photography in the future and I’ve been encouraging him to continue writing his autobiography. Ronn has led an amazing life growing up in Hollywood and has some incredible stories to tell from his life so this is a must. But as you know, he’s rather slow and moves at his own pace, so that won’t be for a while. In the meantime, as we spring forward into these upcoming exciting projects taking us on a new adventure, that maybe we will be visiting you real soon!

Hooray For The Underdog!

I know many of you thought the Broncos would win the Superbowl and many were disappointed. I had no preference and really love superbowl parties to socialize. So I was really happy for the Seahawks because my buddy and Playmate sister Barbara Moore is from Seattle and explained they had never won a superbowl.

DevRonn with Barbara Moore

I’m always one to root for the underdog and so my congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks for taking home the trophy. Speaking of trophies. My other beautiful girlfriend Sandra Taylor was the official trophy girl that evening and so a congrats to her for having that honor.

Sandra Taylor

We spent Superbowl at the Playboy mansion because it’s always fun. Hef had all my favorite foods, sliders, hot wings, chili and even gumbo! Everyone can participate in the superbowl pool to win the big pot of money and there are always so many friends and Playmates to catch up with. I was happy to see my old friend Steve Bing there along with Nels and Jimmy Van Patten. We named them the mansion puppies because they were so young when they started going up there over 30 years ago and were some of the first guys I met up there when I became a Playmate. Turns out Steve has a new restaurant called, “Crossroads” that’s Vegan and his chef Tal wants me to be a guest chef at the restaurant for a Cajun night, which I’m looking forward to!

Hef & Steve Bing

So now that superbowl is over, it’s time to concentrate on more important things, like love. Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I’ve got romance on my brain, especially since I’ve been incapacitated for months now! We have the Mending Kid’s charity at the House of Blues hosted by my pal Tina Hillstrom and KISS to attend on Valentine’s Day and the release of our new relationship book that I know you guys will love! In the meantime, let’s hear it for those Seahawks!!
