It been a while since I’ve been able to blog because I had computer issues and had no choice but to learn to be without constant communication with the world here for a few weeks! Yes I have my Ipad and phone, but I’m just not able to do some things that I’m use to doing, such as the blog on them. I think the universe wanted to make me do without such constant instant communication to the entire world for a while, so that I could truly focus on other things that needed my attention fully. One of those things has been my new little love that I adopted from the Shelter Hope Pet Shop, Prince!

IMG_6190

Prince is my little tea cup Chorkie who some think it the smallest dog they have ever seen. He is only 2 pounds and is fully grown at two years old. A Chorkie is half Chihuahua, half Yorkie and his owners sadly passed away in a car accident about a month ago, so the family dropped him and his big mutt brother, Chester off to the Shelter Hope Pet Shop for adoption. Many of you know how much I love to do to help save our animals and my girlfriend Kim Sill, who started Shelter Hope Pet Shop is the poster child for saving as many as she can. Kim produced the documentary, “Saved In America” and told me all about this amazing little Prince on my recent birthday. As many of you know, I lost my Shih-tzu, Romeo three years ago and just didn’t want to take on the life-time responsibility of another pet because of the amount of traveling Ronn and I do these days. However, when Kim described the story of how she acquired Prince and his personality, I just had to meet him! Turns out we were a match and he’s been such a joy of love and tranquility that the whole family adores! Ronn, Creason and Calee all love the little guy and I decided to change his name from Spencer to Prince because he reminded me so much of the rock star, Prince. His personality is so quiet, yet he is full of energy and so smart for such a little dog. He also so sweet and lovable and sleeps with Ronn and I, but he’s also quite possessive already of me and barks when Ronn kisses me, which I must Periscope soon because it’s quite funny to watch!

So my summer has been flying by with dog day afternoons, doggie play dates and doggie cuddling as I’ve been bonding with my new little guy. I’ve also had to shift my attention to real estate this summer, as we are trying to consolidate and simplify our lives by selling off homes in order to down size and get rid of things we aren’t using or don’t need. I’m a firm believer in doing this yearly in all areas of life because sometimes having less is actually more. It’s a sense of freedom from too many issues that need to be addressed that take up time you could be spending with family. As we get older, it’s important to spend more quality time with friends and family because each and every day becomes more and more precious.

IMG_6121

So this summer hasn’t been as social as we are use to because we have had to shift our priorities to focus on new additions to the family, changes in our lives and more quality time with each other. I guess having the computer problems was good for me because it has forced me to put more energy and intimacy at home. Summer has also brought us two more Emmys to add to our home as producers on “The Bay,” which is launching on Amazon Prime next month! If you have an Amazon Prime account you will be able to catch new digitally remastered season one of fourteen episodes and binge into Bayhem! We couldn’t be more proud and excited for you guys to join in on all the exciting things coming up for “The Bay” this fall when the new season two is launched before Christmas! “The Bay” will also be available in Germany, Austria, Japan, UK/Ireland and China. Unfortunately, we do not have distribution in other areas yet and you will not be able to view episodes on the website anymore. We will be adding more countries as we get distribution in those countries. We will also be shooting more episodes this fall and I will keep you guys posted with behind the scene Periscopes from the set!

IMG_6172

In the meantime, I hope your summer breeze is making you feel fine and that life is treating you well with all the love and joy that life has to offer. It’s really the most important thing we can have and the feeling of love and joy will make all things possible even the impossible.

 

We now are counting down the days until Bayhem mania returns with all new episodes of The Bay on December 1st! And these new episodes will blow you away with what is about to happen to some of your favorite characters! I know many of you are wondering how Sara will do in prison and what happens to Janice after she’s raped? I’m sure you may be wondering if John Blackwell is bringing them all down and how he will do it? Well all I can tell you is that you won’t be disappointed and you will be drooling for much much more Bayhem in 2016!

Our Bay family and selected invited press will be treated to a private party at Doma in Beverly Hills the day before our big release for a premiere of The Bay’s new debut. You will be able to see The Bay on their website every Tuesday and Thursday in December and we will be filming more episodes also in December! I will of course be periscoping live for you behind the scenes of what’s happening with some of your favorite actors as they prepare for what is surely to be our best season!

Ronn and I are so grateful to be part of a such a creative team of talent and look forward to sharing some more surprises that is in store for The Bay. Our creator, executive producer and writer, Gregori J. Martin has personally said he is extremely proud and excited about these new episodes! We are so thankful to be spending our Thanksgiving holiday this year at home with family and friends after being away the past two years. So we want to wish our American friends a wonderful and safe holiday!

As we get ready for holiday cooking, decorating and parties, we wanted to add some items to our Ebay Stores in time for Christmas, including Ronn’s ipad! So be sure and check the store often as I plan to put up new items throughout the next couple weeks! Also be sure and leave a comment on Ronn’s guestbook and sign up to become a Player Angel on his newly revised website!

It’s been six years since Ronn and I have been to the Netherlands and I have never been to Belgium, so this will be a trip I’m looking forward to. It was always difficult to take in the gorgeous cities Ronn and I would travel to in the past due to his demanding schedule on B&B. But now we are free to take our time and enjoy each and every city we visit. As most of you know, Ronn will be performing in concert with DeRomeos on October 24th. There will be an exclusive meet and greet for our DevRonn Fanclub members and you will be informed on more details soon.

DevRonn Meet & Greet

Ronn Moss Meet & Greet

We have various meetings of interest on projects that are forming and DevRonn related interest in Ronn’s BBQ sauce and my spice, along with business dinners and lunches. However, we will have time to take in the sights and beauty of the fall weather and we are so looking forward to that! The heat has been unbearable and we both are really tired of the constant summer that we have had to endure in Southern California recently. Our city desperately needs rain right now, so we hope that change comes soon for us.

Tristan, Caroline, Jackie, Celeste

This past week has been rather busy due to a shoot for the cast of “The Bay” in Malibu at the new home of my best friend Caroline Cusumano, which made it an ultra fun shoot. Look for “The Bay” to release their new shows real soon and be prepared to be in awe! These will be the most intriguing season jam packed with suspense, excitement, drama and sex appeal. I see nothing but praise for our amazing cast and crew!

I plan to scope the highlights of our trip on Periscope so you can feel like you are there with us. So please follow both Ronn and I on Persicope so you don’t miss out on all the fun! We look forward to sharing our adventure in an up close and personal way. We plan on keeping our fanclub members meet and greet small and intimate so we can spend some quality time with you guys that’s why being a member has it’s privileges! There is also a meet and greet opportunity available for those of you attending the concert to meet Ronn! There have been revisions done on Ronn’s website and more surprises coming!

Ronn Moss & DeRomeos

 

It seems Ronn Moss has had a love affair with Italy since the very beginning of his acting career. He shot his first movie, “Hearts and Armour aka “I Paladini on Mount Etna and Rome, which was years before “The Bold and The Beautiful.” So it’s only fitting that he begins a new chapter in his career with a sitcom. I think you know by now just how goofy and funny my husband can be. I know it was hard to see Ronn any other way, but as Ridge Forrester because that is all he did for so long. But now, Ronn wants to play as many different roles as possible. You have seen him as John Blackwell on our Emmy award winning series, “The Bay.” Now you will see him play a much lighter character as John Wright in the upcoming sitcom, “Bruna In Beverly Hills.”

11222291_1631968837043212_960464729851502255_n

When Ronn was given “Bruna In Beverly Hills” to read, he wanted my opinion and I thought it would be totally an awesome role for him to play. Bruna is the Italian mistress of a highly political man in Italy and she is full of passion. She runs away from her lover to America and works as a maid for the Wright family bringing all that is Italian to her new American family.  This project is indeed a family affair and was written by the woman who will play Bruna herself, Laura Fuino. Together with executive producer, Kim Kopf who stars opposite Ronn as, Sally Wright and Valentina Kamenov, as their daughter Stephanie makes this a typical looking Beverly Hills family.

BRUNA IN BEVERLY HILLS banner

Ronn is also a producer on this project, which is directed by another Italian, Max Leonida. You may have remembered Max from his appearance on “Celebrity Wife Swap” with us. I suggested my naturally funny friend that most of you guys know now, Tina Hillstrom to play Sally’s best friend, Elaine and then there’s Elvis, Bruna’s gigolo brother who rounds off our amazing cast. After a read through of the script, we are all totally excited to get this pilot shot next week!

IMG_2965

“Bruna In Beverly Hills” will be unlike any sitcom you have seen and totally hilarious. We are looking forward to giving you a sneak peak next week into these awesome characters and bringing “Bruna In Beverly Hills” to life. “Bruna In Beverly Hills” adds a little spice to everything she does and spreads love and laughter everywhere she goes. I know how much Italy has been missing Ronn and think this is the perfect role for them to see him in next. Who knows what other surprises we may add to “Bruna In Beverly Hills,” maybe a little trip back to Italy is our future?

 

After an intense week of shooting “The Bay” we wrapped last Friday and I can honestly say; it will be the best season ever to look forward to! Ronn had a blast with John Blackwell and I think we will look forward to adding more Emmys to our mantel next year!

 With Summer just around the corner, it was time for some Barbeques and that meant having a few friends over to celebrate the season finale of “Game of Thrones.” I kinda wasn’t feeling it most of the season and didn’t really enjoy it until I saw the last two episodes. The finale was an excuse for some of the die- hard watchers to come over to eat some meat and drink some wine. Ronn has his own goblet with a dragon on it, so he was pumped and ready!

This month is also my birthday, so we decided to do one of our Potluck Jam Parties so that we can visit with many of our friends before Player starts their tour with Little River Band and Ambrosia. This will be a great way to kick off celebrating summer because there is nothing like great food and friends hanging out by the pool with barbeques and great music!

FullSizeRender  

Ronn and I enjoyed meeting author, Charles Dubow of the novel, “Girl In The Moonlight” at the home of my pal, Tina Hillstrom and it was also there that Ronn was presented with an original painting of John Lennon, compliments of artist, Josee Nadeau. If you recall, Josee was a guest on “Ronn’s Garage.” So we are looking forward to more gatherings this summer with friends as Player embarks on their tour, maybe at a city near you? In the meantime, you can keep up with us by subscribing to this blog or following us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

We hope you will celebrate summer with your friends and family and a little bit of DevRonn at your next barbeque, because that’s what summer is really all about, right?

We are gearing up to start shooting “The Bay” and there is quite a bit of excitement in the air for this new season of shows. After a relaxing Memorial Day weekend at home, Ronn and I will be working long hours this weekend with our Bay family.

_Z0A0018_pp _Z0A0022_pp

It’s hard to believe that almost half of 2015 has just flown by already and summer is just around the corner! This means Player will be touring around the USA with Little River Band and Ambrosia soon. Ironically, Baby Come Back was the song of choice that four friends were singing on their way from Miami to Los Angeles, when their tire blew out on the freeway! Thankfully they were all fine, but the video went viral with almost 5 million views thus far! This has caused many fans to request Player to appear on talk shows!

Ronn and I are really excited to go to NYC together in July when Player is on tour because after eleven years, we have never been to NYC together! So this will be super fun for us! Ronn has also been in the mood to do his photography and I’ve done a little modeling for him recently, we are now trying to find some more time to shoot more photos together soon!

Rock the Yacht

Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce is starting to get quite a buzz and those of you who have tried it, know why. We will be informing our Fanclub members of some exciting news soon! When you signup for our Fanclub, you will get a FREE Cajun Spice and sample size BBQ sauce, along with a FREE Ebook of autographed photos and 10% off all DevRonn products that you buy from our store! Plus you get to know first where and when we will appear next, so if you aren’t a member, what are you waiting for?

We are looking forward to rocking out this summer with Player and friends and enjoying more BBQs with Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce, not to mention, some amazing surprises just for our Fanclub members!

Our Bay family has been on a world wind of energy since our first Emmy win for “Best Drama New Approaches” and our producing team is stepping it up a notch this season. We have all been working really hard to get ready for the best season ever! And after reading the next two chapters written by our talented executive producer/creator, Gregori Martin, I can honestly say it’s going to be quite awesome!

brandnewbanner_hard

We are all excited about the Bayhem mania that is taking place on the Internet. Seems there is quite a buzz about “The Bay” and what will happen to Sara Garrett. We know you are also wondering about Janice now that her daughter knows that her mother has been sleeping with her ex-boyfriend Peter and of course the dark and mysterious John Blackwell’s vendetta against his father who is the mayor of Bay City.

karrueche-tran-the-bay-daytime-emmy-gregori-j-martin-kristos-andrews-table-read-cast-member-joined-chris-brown-prophecy-sunofhollywood-01-1

I can tell you there will be alot of suspense, surprises and of course dramatic moments in store for the new season, and some exciting new characters added to our already amazing cast. As a result of our Emmy win, it seems Bayhem mania is just beginning around the world, as more and more countries get interested in “The Bay.”

TERRI+2

We will start shooting our next season at the end of May into mid June and Ronn and I are really looking forward to it. The wonderful energy that has organically been created by our amazing team of producers is infectious and there is no doubt we will be looking at winning a few more Emmys next year!

banner_about

Needless to say, Ronn and I will be total busy bees for the next few weeks. So I hope you all will go watch the past season of “The Bay” if you haven’t yet, so that you can get into the Bayhem spirit and understand why Bayhem mania is just beginning! So fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride.!!

Ronn and I have been on a winning streak both personally and professionally in this past week. Starting with the Paul Newman event “Winning the race for charity” that we attended with Peter Beckett and Eden Ayers. Peter and Ronn performed at the Roosevelt Hotel along with members of “Little River Band” and “Toto.” Then we took off to Las Vegas with Peter and Eden to attend a private birthday party and got to see Winsor Harmon.

It was a rare weekend for us to reflect and celebrate winning some personal issues that we have been battling for quite some time, as well as, winning that Emmy nomination as producers on our amazing series, “The Bay.” We were in such gratitude and on a natural high just being with friends and enjoying the awesome music Peter and Ronn participated in along with other great artists, such as Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of the “Doobie Brothers” and “Steely Dan.”

IMG_2257

When we arrived home it was time to celebrate with parties that were leading up to the Emmys. I was thrilled to see our long time Aussie friend, Fiona Horne and spend some quality time with her, while Ronn went to the festivities for Pop TV and got to see alot of his fellow soap stars. Since “The Bay” was put in the category of “New Approaches” and held with the creative Emmys on Friday, it was not televised. Apparently, Pop TV which is the former TV Guide network only wanted shows that were broadcast on television on the actual Emmys this year. We didn’t think that was fair considering it wasn’t that way last year, but nevertheless, it’s the same Emmy! Turns out “The Bay” beat out shows from Hulu and Youtube  and took home that Emmy!

daytime-emmy-awards-post

We couldn’t be more than thrilled for this amazing cast and crew! It is more than well deserved and TV Guide said, “The Bay blurred the lines between prime time and daytime television.” So I predict “The Bay” could find a home soon on primetime television and maybe be the first show to win both a daytime and primetime Emmy in the coming years.

Ronn and I chose not to attend the awards and instead see John McCook’s daughter Molly’s show, “Cruel Intentions the Musical.” It was an awesome musical and we got to see Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, Scott Clifton and Kim Matula there. By the time we arrived home to the news that we were now Emmy winning producers, it made our evening even more special.

11094221_10153312120543156_4906574508475612635_n

We then attended the Emmy gifting suite and ran into more B&B soap stars we hadn’t seen in quite a while such as, Jacob Young and Ali Mills. Ronn and I will both get our Emmy in the mail soon and look forward to shooting the new season of “The Bay” next month!

 

 

This past week has been filled with important, but mundane paperwork that has been needed for various things before we get ready for the Player Australian tour in November.

 

It’s all been part of clearing the past to make our future a bit brighter and for our focus to be consistently more creative. I’ve found it hard to concentrate on creativity when dealing with paperwork involving business.

1504053_556595951099244_1409139383_n

 

Nevertheless, we must sometimes focus on the mundane things in life if we are to keep things in balance. I try to do this in every area of our lives as much as possible. Thus, the inspiration for my book, “True Age, Timeless Beauty.”

10006597_281857031981052_287548002_n

 

When we clear the past of all things that aren’t needed or wanted, we make room for new things and tell the universe we are ready for a brighter future.

 

Ronn was swamped with press interviews from Australia, including an exclusive for the magazine, “New Idea.” He’s also very busy putting his musical set together for the solo portion of his upcoming Aussie tour. We also entertained friends from Belgium and Italy about possible projects relating to music and television.

10599572_10152672712008156_8153915665991390464_n

 

In addition to that he is preparing to shoot new episodes of “The Bay” in October, as well as, preparing for other film and TV projects that are in development for next year.

 

It seems like this year has flown by so fast and we have been working so hard at making all the projects happen, but there is only so much time in a year. We did take some time out for fun with artist Michael Moebius, photographer Terry O’Neill and our introduction to the one and only Raquel Welch on her birthday.

10644811_10152734188563156_8766084167563636054_n

 

Ronn also enjoyed presenting a best actor award to Daniel Baldwin at the Burbank International Film Festival last weekend. So we are finally enjoying some creative time at home this weekend.

10645050_10152738879803156_7099105741580752258_n

 

I try and pay attention to things that are required in clearing the past even though some may be mundane because I know it’s the universe’s way of saying better things are coming as a result.

 

I want to congratulate Julie Wooldridge on winning an autographed copy of “True Age, Timeless Beauty” for subscribing to my Woman to Woman website and thank you all who continue to support my writings. I’m so happy the book has been a inspiration and have already begun a follow up to it that I believe with help change lives.

10488002_10152159943515686_8555333630078111202_n

 

There is still a can of Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning to give away for subscribing to this blog so that you never miss another post!

 

I’m working on a FREE ebook of Gluten-Free recipes to give away soon! And we want an Aussie to get the chance to win dinner with Ronn and be featured on Ronn’s Garage! Details coming soon!

20140705_182656_resized

 

It seems clearing the past has already been bringing new and interesting things into our lives and Ronn has been asked to host a show called “Hot Package” for the cartoon network. We have also been asked to guest star on a new celebrity cooking show that will film this October, so I will keep you posted on that! In the meantime, we will post a new livechat this week, so stay tuned!

 

 Ronn

I want you guys to know that I’m writing this particular post as a fan of “The Bold and The Beautiful” myself and not as Ronn’s wife.

 

We have been bombarded with emails about how upset our beloved seconda casa Italy is about seeing a Nu-Ridge on their TV sets. It seems they are not happy with this and it’s causing an uproar with fans.

 

I see the good, the bad and the ugly from soap fans on a daily basis and from the looks of things the majority of fans are starting to really speak out about the stupid storylines and the fact that they miss Ronn so much.

 IMG_9082

I saw this video that was clearly posted a while back on Youtube and shared it on Facebook because it made me cry. A fan obviously went through a great deal of trouble to make a video of precious and heartfelt moments between Brooke and Ridge that was intercut with sound bites from Ronn. It was so moving and heartfelt that I could feel the pain most fans are going through, as I was a fan myself.

 

One of our devoted fans from Slovakia posted the video on our fan page and suddenly the video was blocked with a message that the content was owned by “The Bold and The Beautiful” and has been blocked on the grounds of copyright.

 

Wow!  Could this be more obvious? The whole world has been watching this show forever and look for their daily fixes of the past now on Youtube and suddenly a video that has been up for months is suddenly taken down once it was shared by me?

 

This video was made of clips that had been on the Internet for years and was a beautiful expression of love. So the fact that B&B has taken it down speaks volumes don’t you think?

 

 

 

 

 

celebrity_wife_swap

Most of you that saw the recent episode of Celebrity Wife Swap got to see a piece of our real lives and it seems like you were excited about that. It also seemed like most of you enjoyed it as entertaining television. But what you didn’t see was all the moments that were shot only to end up on the editing room floor.

 

I don’t watch much television because Ronn and I prefer watching movies, although we are into some shows that we have caught onto from Internet buzz such as, “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones.” I use to watch the soaps, but find them quite boring these days and I never follow reality shows.

 

So when Celebrity Wife Swap approached us to guest on their popular ABC show, Ronn was skeptical. I did my research and actually spoke with a former guest star, Eliza Roberts who is married to Eric Roberts. She had nothing but praise for the PG rated Disney primetime series that fans seem to love.

 

Most reality shows tend to want people to create drama and make themselves look foolish, as this is what they think viewers want to see. Celebrity Wife Swap is a show that places two wives into each other’s homes to run their households in their shoes.  The differences between the two families, is what the show likes to embrace and show what each family got from the experience at the end.

 

As with most reality shows, what you end up seeing on screen isn’t always literally what happened or a correct picture of who the person is or what really happened. They shoot so much footage, ninety percent of which isn’t shown to get a story that they want to tell.

 

By the time it goes to the editor only a fraction of that is chopped up to give you a show. And the editor can decide to make someone look a certain way depending on how it’s edited because so much it taken out of context.

 TylerRonWifeSwap

For example, everyone knows I love to cook and I did a four- course dinner that included, crabcakes, tomato basil soup and shrimp Creole none of which was shown on that episode. I also do speaking engagements to empower women and one of those engagements was filmed for Brie to do, which wasn’t shown.  Brie and Ronn went horseback riding and that wasn’t shown. Ronn wrote a wonderful handwritten note to Brie that made her cry and that wasn’t shown. Brie got to sing with Player and had a blast and that wasn’t shown. So many moments with Graysun and me were not shown. Graysun told me he loved me and we had so many playful moments and only a fraction of that was shown.

 

So what you ended up seeing was only a fraction of what really happened. The truth was that we all got along great and there was no conflict, so they edited what little they had to make it seem like there could be some conflict or irritation, when in fact, there wasn’t much of any.

 

ronnmoss_devindevasquez_01_5x4

Since this was a rare episode about two soap stars, it made good television to have them without their shirts on taking about love. It’s what soap fans want to see and I know this firsthand because I’m a soap fan.  What was indeed real were my feelings for little Graysun. How could you not fall in love with that adorable kid?  And I did immediately bond with him and get him to eat what I cooked.

 

Ronn is very much an outdoor guy. He loves to bike ride and is in great shape because he’s been active with martial arts and sports his whole life. But we both are not big on being out in the sun for hours on end. We like to visit the beach, but prefer living in the country or the mountains.

 

However, Ronn does not like bikes made for two people and prefers a motorcycle instead. And the garage is an important place for his creativity with music. So they played on her doing things that would rub him the wrong way and they constantly do these snippets of interviews to get you tell how you feel about it? Then when they edit they can grab what they want to put with visuals and tell a story the way they want to depict it.

 

So just like you can’t believe everything you read, you can’t believe everything you see on reality TV. It’s meant to be entertaining and that’s exactly what it was in the end. We wanted to have fun with what we had to do and that’s what we did. What you saw was fun, heartwarming, sweet and sexy.  So I guess we all did our job and gave audiences and hour of television that is still being talked about.

10515185_475354909234577_9044745736516197243_o

 

Hopefully this will create great ratings for Celebrity Wife Swap and show producers that the concept of having two soap hunks show off a piece of their real lives was a win/win for everyone.  I know you can never please everyone and there are always people who will want to cut you down no matter what, but one things is for certain and that’s love.  And alot of love was presented in spades in this episode. 

 

Our goal for doing this show was to give our fans a glimpse into our real lives. As most of you know Ronn does make me daily cappuccinos with love and is the most generous caring human being to his fans and friends. I am a lucky girl and am more than happy to cook for him, the band and friends because I love doing it.  Anyone that says anything otherwise doesn’t know us, and it doesn’t matter anyway.  All in all Celebrity Wife Swap was sheer entertainment that made us all laugh for an hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s nice to be back home after an awesome weekend in Atlanta to see Peter Beckett and Ronn join those smooth rockin guys of Yacht Rock Revue onstage. We were somewhat worried when we woke up last Saturday morning to a gray colored day that dropped endless raindrops on Piedmont Park.  The concert had already presold 2600 tickets and wasn’t sure if it was a good idea to sell anymore given the look of the day.

10532560_10203535759491272_5872552411461891872_n

But Robbie Dupree predicted the sun would shine that afternoon and the show would go, and he must be a psychic because he was absolutely right! They even ended up selling another 500 tickets at the door to a more than eager audience.

The evening had unexpected fireworks that seemed to coincided with the music, and the warm breezy air made everyone feel like they were on another planet where everyone was feeling as one. Love filled the air with a contagious energy of blissfulness, especially when Player sang, “Baby Come Back.” A bra flew up to hit Peter in the face and  I’ve never seen young 20 something year old men and women scream so loud!

 celebrity_wife_swap

I started thinking it must be because of the anticipation of tomorrow’s airing of “Celebrity Wife Swap.” Seems word is getting around that Player will be featured and I know how excited everyone is to see them in their element at home the way I do all the time.

Ronn and I are so excited to have our friends who participated in Celebrity Wife Swap with us over to watch it with us, that we are making a viewing party out of it; and yes I’ll be cooking along with a few guest chefs that will help me out in the kitchen.

I know the show will be quite funny given the things I made Tyler Christopher do during the rule changes. And I know what Brienne Christopher did with my hubby, so the only thing that can spell to me is sheer entertainment. In fact, Ronn tweets to Tyler now, “Go ahead take my wife anytime you want, just make sure I get her back from time to time.”

TylerRonWifeSwap

I’m not sure if Tyler has continued any of my rule changes, but I know I had fun stepping into Brie’s shoes for those few days and I think she had just as much fun stepping into mine. However, I’m not sure how much fun it was for our husbands with what we put them through, but hey that’s marriage right?

One thing’s for certain, Brie got one of my delicious morning ronnuccinos shirtless! I think it made her blush a bit from the previews I’ve seen. Does that make me jealous? Not one bit, because what til you see what I got from her hubby? Thank God Brie had a great sense of humor because I think I would be in big trouble or then again she may be thanking me because of the things I taught him? So all I can say is you better not miss Celebrity Wife Swap Tuesday July 22nd on ABC to find out how it all goes down!

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!

We will surely be going into Sunday withdrawals for our Game of Thrones parties. It all started because of Peter and Eden, or Peden as we called them. Every time I saw Peter for Player rehearsals all he ever talked about was Game of Thrones. Even Creason and Calee talked about it, so Ronn and I decided to start watching from the beginning and got hooked.  Just the sheer thought of twin brother and sister royalty having sex was enough to grab your attention. Then there was that little prick Joffery who everyone hated with a passion because he became king and wasn’t even a rightful one, but born out of incest. The characters are too numerous and the sword fighting and dragons draw you into a constant adventure every week trying to guess who will get the axe and who do you hate and want to see die anyway.

Now I rarely get into much television, but you couldn’t help but notice this series was bit different to say the least. It cost HBO approx $10million an episode and they took a year filming on location to produce 10 episodes a season. This is like watching an epic movie each week and following an ongoing serial medieval drama that has you excited to see what would happen next. Ronn has always had an affinity for the renaissance period, which may help explain his love to wrap scarves around his neck. The truth be known, Ronn Moss is completely in love with everything about this show, especially the cinematography. So I got the bright idea to have Sunday Game of Thrones dinner parties to have die hard Game of Throne fanatics like us, join in on all the fun!

We went all out for the finale and dressed up as some of our favorite characters. I required everyone to bring chicken in lew of the scene in the bar with “The Hound” when he wanted to eat some chicken and ended up killing a few of the kings men. Our theater was filled with our regular die hards as I call them. My neighbor Sue always brings over the most addicting brownies and included some killer home made mashed potatoes to boot! Dr. Donald and Lisa Waldrep and their adorable miracle twins, Carson and Gracie go beyond and above with their amazing hearts of gold. They always bring so much love, light and laughter to our parties and they have become part of our family.  I think you all know by now who DevRonn and Peden are and we have added “The boys” as I like to call them to our family, Kristos Andrews, Gregori Martin and Derrell Whitt from “The Bay Series” and you complete our Sunday dinner tradition.

Everyone enjoyed getting dressed up for the grand finale and enjoyed the evening. The chatter afterwards about what we thought would happen next season went from speculating that John Snow would fall in love with the mother of dragons, to how much Sansa was changing her appearance with her new short dark hair.  I think we will continue our Sunday gatherings to include our new Game of Thrones game compliments of Carson and Gracie!

DSC00010_pp

Will that royal bitch Sussy ever get the axe? Will Aria reunite her family and use “Needle” to help her do so?  Will that big Bitch fall in love with “The Hound” and save him? Will anyone sit on the throne in Kings Landing that isn’t a little boy? We will all have to wait until next year to find out.

 

 

It seems lately that Ronn and I have been bombarded with all kinds of symbolic things that have been leading us on our life’s path. I believe it’s because we are wholeheartedly following our greatest passions and becoming super creative with many things. Ronn has various projects in the works and we are now producers on the hot new webseries, The Bay and couldn’t be more pleased to collaborate with such talented people. So yes you will be seeing alot more of that mysterious, John Blackwell!

 

I’ve been led to the Cure Center for weight loss and am now doing speaking engagements with Dr. Donald Waldrep and his gorgeous wife Lisa. It seems my book, True Age, Timeless Beauty has taken it’s own life’s path and touched a few people and I couldn’t be more pleased. My first few speaking engagements at the Cure Center was a big hit and I have already helped a few women firsthand. “True Age, Timeless Beauty” is all about keeping your life in balance and how to manifest your greatest dreams and desires.

So at the moment we are following our life’s path and will make a unique appearance on a hit ABC primetime show next week. We can’t tell you details just yet, but it will be very funny, heartwarming and give you more insight on us. Ronn is also gearing up to do a mini series in the fall and Player is starting to rehearse for their upcoming tour to Australia and New Zealand at the end of the year.

PLAYER

As you can see, it’s been busy and getting busier, but we couldn’t be happier to embrace this new and exciting journey doing the things we are feeling most passionate about. I hope to add more Livestream chats and events soon, as well as, Ebay items. In the meantime, please check out last week’s episode of The Bay and see why everyone is talking about John Blackwell when the new episode airs this Thursday!!

By now everyone knows that Ronn will be appearing on General Hospital. We thought his debut would be Friday, but didn’t realize the Nurse’s Ball, which is General Hospital’s biggest show extends into next week. So Ronn will debut on Monday May 12th and it’s something I hope you don’t miss because it truly is special.

As a soap fan myself, I thought the concept and the storyline of this particular part of the Nurse’s Ball was very heartfelt, not to mention entertaining. I know many of you are speculating on what exactly Ronn is doing? Many are wondering what character he’s playing or if he’s singing and I for one am amazed at all the response. It seems alot of B&B fans have missed simply seeing Ronn and many GH fans are tired of new characters and want to see more of their favorites, which is understandable.

Y&R use to be my favorite soap and it’s become kinda of boring and B&B has become unwatchable in my opinion. So I have been watching GH and I love it! GH has more action, drama, suspense, surprises, romance and shocking storylines that the others don’t, which is way more entertaining. I think Internet content is taking over what daytime once was to many viewers such, as myself. A series like “The Bay” seems like a nighttime or primetime soap.

Many shows today that are on primetime such as, “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” are simply high production primetime soaps. A soap is a serial drama and daytime dramas need to change things around to keep their shrinking audience. No longer is television dominating the field, many Internet series are proving that in spades. “One Life To Live” obviously has new life on web because it’s nominated along with daytime television in this year’s Daytime Emmys.

So I think General Hospital‘s marketing campaign was ingenious and they made Ronn an offer he couldn’t refuse, because it was a win/win. Fans around the world that don’t get GH will get to see this on the web after we do next week and the impact I believe could be massive. GH has already tied Y&R in ratings of women 18-49 and they have been number one in that spot for years. So I think GH could knock them down a peg after this airs.

Competition is tough today with so much interesting original content that is currently being self produced. No longer can television dominate, however they can and will start developing content currently on the web for their time slots because it just makes sense. We can produce our own shows like “Ronn’s Garage.” And I know how much you guys would love that to be on television! Just think maybe then you would get a new episode on a more regular basis instead of when Ronn has time for it.

Right now, Ronn is becoming very much in demand all over the world for various reasons. He wasn’t free enough before with B&B to have the time for a Player tour that is now happening. He was under a contract on a role that was taking over his entire life and he wasn’t feeling appreciated for what he was giving to that. Now he’s free to play, create and explore all those countries around the globe that are anxious to welcome him.

He’s also free to show you who he really is as Ronn and to show the world his talent and passions. I really have to laugh at some of the haters that constantly try to put him down. I’ve seen Ronn, Ridge and John Blackwell recently and they are all completely different characters that he breaths amazing energy into.  I’ve seen Ronn in concert and I know things that are brewing that you don’t. So like the new “Too Many Reasons” Player  song, “The Words You Say” I would almost bet some of those words will surely be eaten away very quickly as more creativity is reveal by Ronn.

Too Many Reasons

We all need to feel a sense of appreciation for our work in life. It’s way more important to follow your true passion in life than it is to work for money. The money will surely follow if true passion for what you are doing is present. That is what Ronn is doing now and I think it’s showing up all over the place. So GH was thrilled to have Ronn and it was a super fun and positive experience for him. And I do believe it will be for you too, even the haters.

We have been extremely busy fielding through various projects, some pertaining to Ronn and I together and some pertaining to Player. There have been some that are in development and some that are getting ready to start. All involving a variety of things that include, music, movies, television, endorsements and charity.

Spending time with friends and family has dominated our past week because we know we will start traveling soon and nothing make us both happier than to be home entertaining friends and creating new things that we are passionate about. We hope you enjoy Ronn’s visit to General Hospital next week and continue on this amazing adventure with us. Here’s to wishing all the mamas out there a wonderful Mother’s Day!  We are celebrating our five year wedding anniversary with some quality alone time as we prepare for the excitement of  what’s coming next!
