It was great having Ronn home even though it was only for a couple of days. He really seemed exhausted and said this has been very hard on him, but as always, he seems to blaze through it. Working on B&B non stop and doing 7 shows this week didn’t give him much time with me and the girls, however we managed to have a lovely family dinner of stuffed pasta shells last night. He left in the wee hours of this morning heading back to Rome, this time for 10 days! Peter Beckett joined him on this trip and they will perform a little mini live acoustic concert in Rome. It is the longest we will be apart, since our wedding. I am deep into studying for my real estate license and still into learning Italian, so the quiet time alone is good for me right now. I’m also attending a dear friend’s birthday party on Saturday, so that should be fun. Personally, I don’t mind being alone, because I always seem to get so many things done. It’s been great to get back to the gym and I plan to start pole class again next week. I’m also finishing the edits on my next book, “True Age, Timeless Beauty” which is a guide for keeping your life in balance and finding the fountain of youth and all that you desire in life. I’m very excited to share personal secrets that I have learned over the years with everyone and have been writing this book for the past three years. I finally feel it’s almost finished. The DevRonn website is also going through a makeover and I’m currently taking meetings with potential investors to take it to the next level in marketing. We have a wonderful product that everyone seems to love as much as we do and it was made for a great cause, so I believe with all my heart that it will be in the supermarkets soon. Our dream is to make it available to a mass market. I am happy to announce my first personal appearance in years and will be signing autographed copies of my book, “The Truth About A Pinup Model” along with other memorabilia at the Pasadena Convention center, March 20th, 2010. Other celebrities joining me there are Ozzy Osbourne, Frank Stallone and Shirley Jones just to name a few of over 150 celebrities in attendance.

Saturday night was a emotional night for Peter and Ronn to join their original bandmate JC Crowley to play onstage with them. It was the first time in over 25 years. Due to the fact that JC had throat cancer and had a 20% chance of survival back in 1994, he’s a walking miracle. His wife had never seen him sing, “Baby Come Back” with the band, so this was indeed a very emotional evening for all of them to reunite. This was a tribute to legendary producer, Dennis Lambert, so many artists that Dennis worked with over the past 40 years came out to sing one or two of their hits. Some of those artists that shared the stage with PLAYER included, “The Commodores, Natalie Cole and Connie Stevens. We all celebrated after the show for a private party which included fans who flew in from Italy just to see Ronn! Our very own webmistress, Patti Myers was there to make sure the event was covered for the website. We both think this is just the start of something bigger for PLAYER and hope that JC and Peter will start writing together again soon.
Last night Ronn and I had our second annual “Potluck Jamma Jam” party and I think it was our best party ever! PLAYER was the focus of the Jam, unlike the past Jam parties in which we had a variety of musician just get up and jam. I wanted some close friends and neighbors to experience what I’ve been seeing in rehearsals with them lately. Peter Beckett sang better than I’ve ever seen him and the synergy of their vibe was amazing. Drummer Ron Wixo who has played with “Foreigner” flew in from Austin to Jam and was he kickass! We had some new friends visit for the first time like soap stars Michelle Stafford, Brandon Beemer, Nadia Bjorlin, Don Diamont and Christian LeBlanc. My friend Corey Feldman and his wife Suzi stopped by also. It was a beautiful day and so I started the party out by the pool since we had lots of kids present and we moved inside at sunset. Since it was potluck, everyone brought food and there were tons of it, so it was hard to get people out of our kitchen and into the garage where the jam was happening, but once they were in there, they were hooked. We even had our little flower girl kick off the jam with “Twinkle Twinkle little Star” and she’s only 2 years old, along with Mackenzie Cregan who is 12 sang “Hot Leggs” and “Johnny B Goode” as well as, a neighborhood band joined in. With over 100 people in attendance I am pooped out today, but it was so much fun hanging with all my girlfriends and new friends that I’m already planning another one. This one will be filmed and we will do it to raise money for New Orleans. I’m calling it a “Kickass Cajun Jam” with Cajun food and surprise musical guest. So all of you are invited to come to our next jam party. I’m just starting to plan it, so I’ll keep you posted on when and where and how you can attend. We will presell tickets and this will be an exclusive event and it will be filmed. It will also be a chance for you to try some awesome Cajun food and “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” if haven’t done so already! So please check out for details on it soon!
