Beautiful and elegant, my favorite dance that Ronn and Sara have done so far. I hope the judges gave them good scores!
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. Check out this link for more details and come and see me!
Ronn and I skype after his shows and he tells me how it went for him. Last night was a hard one. He said he was surprised that he was called at the start of the show to do last week’s dance, the “Paso Doble” by himself! He did so well, the judges gave him high scores for a change.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XkrwaJKqak&feature=sub] This score was added to his score for this week’s dance, which put him at the top three of this week’s scores. As usual, he was near the last to dance his dance for this week, which was the “Salsa.” Now keep in mind “Ballando con le stelle” is nearly 4 hours of live television, so the waiting around is grinding for him. Not to mention, he’s been down with a cold/allergy type of problem now for weeks. I was very worried about him getting through this week of dancing. The flying back and forth alone has taken a toll on him, along with doing 8 shows in two days on B&B. This schedule hasn’t given him much time at all with me and the kids when he is here. He will be home tomorrow to work on B&B for two days and do 7 shows. He will then leave on Thursday for 10 days in Rome to do the next two shows for “Ballando!” As you can see, my husband is a superman! He makes it all look so easy and he’s wonderful because he never wants to disappoint his fans. I love how generous and hard working he is with all that he does. Please send him your love and support on twitter/ronnmoss57, he needs it right now.
Ronn Moss’s Italian fan base loves him, and on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars Italy (Ballando con le Stelle) the ballroom competition dance show won the night in the ratings department. Saturday evening in Italy, the hit show had an average share of 29.75%. Ronn Moss’ dance performance of the Quick Step achieved the highest audience numbers of the show with a peak of 7.3 million viewers. (36.54% market share). The show began with a 32.19% market share with 6.2 million viewers.
B&B’s Moss, was elegantly dressed in a tuxedo, and did not miss a step of his routine. In the end, Ronn was tied with three other competitors for 7th place after the technical jury’s scores were tabulated, and was not in the bottom four. After the final audience voting tabulations were combined with the jury scores, Ronn was not eliminated. He did not achieve immunity. Ronn has largely been the main focus of the reality show’s media campaign, and has graced several covers, including GENTE (the first time ever that a B&B actor has graced the cover of this magazine). The magazine Gioia covered Ronn Moss with a four page feature, and this is the first time ever that this magazine has covered an actor from B&B. Ronn will commute back and forth from Rome, Italy, where “Ballando” is broadcast live every Saturday evening, to Los Angeles, California, from now until the end of March, in order to continue taping episodes of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” as Ridge Forrester. The next live show for Dancing with the Stars Italy is this Saturday, January 16th! Good luck, Ron!
Make sure to check out On-Air On-Soaps Video of the Day with Ronn, in training, behind-the-scenes, and in rehearsal, on Dancing with the Stars Italy!
It was so great to be home and cook for Ronn and the girls. Calee had a growth spurt and is almost as tall as me now. Ronn unfortunately, had to work late on B&B, so we didn’t get to actually have dinner with him. Nevertheless, it was great to be home and all together, if only briefly. Ronn left in the wee hours of this morning to head back to Rome and will have an intense day of dance rehearsals tomorrow. I’m down with a dreaded cold and have been resting all day, drinking hot tea and slowly catching up on business matters. Please send Ronn all your love and support, he needs it more than ever right now. Here are a few of the magazines that have featured Ronn in the past week for any of you that read Italian. I’m proud of how well I’m doing with my Italian lessons and intend to keep practicing everyday. I understand a lot of words, but need to work on pronunciation and putting sentences together. I feel like a little kid again learning to speak.
Here are some clips from Ronn’s first movie that he shot in Italy with Barbara DeRossi who is also competing on “Ballando con le stelle.” Barbara played Ronn’s love interest and he of course played a Prince. This film was shot on location in Sicily in 1983. It’s amazing to me how much Creason looks like her daddy here.
Ronn and I are heading home today and I can’t wait! Rome has been a wonderful experience, unlike any of my other trips here and Ronn feels the same way. We have made some terrific friends, like gorgeous Nancy Brilli and her adorable husband Roy, who cooked us an amazing dinner. Our beautiful dear friend, Lavinia Biagiotti treated us like royalty on Christmas, in her beautiful castle with her mother Laura and our new friend Loreto took us on that wonderful private tour of the Vatican and Sistine chapel and turned us on to a wonderful little restaurant we will never forget. Ronn is now having an emotional and unique experience with all the dancers on Ballando con le stelle and is having a lot of fun. Although, it’s alot of hard work, he is challenging himself with it and is excited to show Italy who Ronn really is. For so long, Italy has loved “Ridge” but hasn’t known the man who has brought him to life. I was very proud of him last night and thought he did a fabulous job, in spite of the critical comments made by the judges. They don’t understand that Ronn has had to work twice as hard as everyone else; in a shorter amount of time due to also shooting B&B. He will be flying back and forth every week to do B&B and will only have one good day to rehearse his dance for that week, whereas all the other dancers will have the whole week to prepare. I think what he did in the amount of time he has had to prepare is simply amazing! I’m sure as the show progresses, everyone will come to see who Ronn really is and how dedicated he is to his work and his fans. He appreciates so much the fans in Italy who has cast their votes for him. Until our next trip together…..
Tonight is the big night for Ronn and all of the dancers competing on “Ballando con le stelle” and I must say I am very excited for them. They all have been working very hard and I believe Ronn has a new appreciation for dance, even though it’s not his passion. Since he is a musician, he can hear the music and therefore is learning very quickly. He will be saying lines here and there on the show in Italian, so we have be studying together. I don’t think our pronunciation is all that great, but we working very hard on it. It’s raining again today so we are staying in the hotel as much as possible. I hope our flight home tomorrow goes out smoothly. I’m am really missing home now.
Here is a preview of the stars competing tonight.
Today, was a long day. I went into the studio in Roma to do the 2nd fitting for my first suit for my first dance on Saturday night. In Italy, they make all the clothes, for a show like this, from scratch. So the formal suit is made one stitch at a time. Several fitting will take place to make sure it fits like a glove. That’s a lot of pins to stick my hands as I try and take it off each time. Really, these people are amazing in their dedication to making everything custom, and making everything perfect. I’m going to look GOOD even if I dance so so.
Once the fitting was done, I had my 2 hour dance lesson with Sara Di Vaira. She’s really patient with trying to teach me these different dances. She says I’m doing well but I sometimes feel like Quasi Moto desperately trying to learn Jive dancing. We dance in a very well lit rehearsal studio with 2 way mirrors on 2 sides of the room. Behind these mirrors are 3 cameras that follow our every move and frustration throughout the lessons. All of them. Did I mention, it gets up to what feels like about 120 degrees in there because of the intensity of the lights. These rooms double as tanning booths. Anyway, once we’re finished with the daily lesson, we try and dry off from loosing about 3 quarts of sweat, then get ready for going to the main studio where the actual show will be filmed LIVE Saturday night. There, we will rehearse for the first time with the actual live band. There must be 12 different cameras involved at all angles. Over the audience boom view, main 3 cameras on the floor, one semi-circle camera moving with us automatically as we move like they have with race horses along the side of the track. And of course the extreme close up that gets right into the muscles in your face twitching with how much your feet hurt. All part of the show.
Did I mention it was much cooler in this studio than our rehearsal studio. I think it only got to about 115 degrees.
Tomorrow, there’s more 2 hour dance lessons, and more rehearsal in the main studio with the band again. Then interviews and photo sessions for magazines and various newspaper articles. I must say, this band, which includes the typical rhythm section of drums, bass, keyboards and guitar…. Also includes horns, percussion, singers and a violin. They are a kickass band!
All for now, I must try and sleep. It’s almost 1am and my feets hurt!
Love to you all, Ronn
Ronn is feeling better, but still has a runny nose. It didn’t stop him from dancing his butt off on Saturday and I must say he is looking pretty damn good. Although, it’s hard work, two hours of dancing in a heated room due to all the lights and the filming of it, he is handling it all pretty well. Today he had the day off, so we went to see the Colloseum and Pantheon and did a lot of walking around the city. As always, everyone recognizes Ronn even with a hat on and glasses and want non stop photos. We went to the supermarket here for a few things we needed and the guy at the check out counter call his wife to have Ronn say hello. We went to get gelati and the girl behind the counter wanted a photo. We go to restaurants and the owners, cooks and waiters all want photos and autographs. He stops traffic and men, women and children call out Ronn Moss as he walk the streets. Crowds build if he stops for one picture and it can become crazy. It becomes tiring to walk the city with him as a result, so he ended up covering his face with a scarf and that seems to work, especially walking through the crowded streets of the shopping district. I’ve never seen so many people! Seems all the stores have sales of 30%-50% off after New Year’s eve so everyone goes shopping. This week will be non stop dance lessons and rehearsals for the live taping of “Ballando con le stelle” on Saturday night. So I will take a day to myself tomorrow and study more Italian, write and do some shopping alone. It’s been a great new year for us so far and we have really enjoyed touring Roma, making new friends, eating great Italian food and drinking some good vino. I will for sure need to hit the gym hard when I get home! Here is a video clip Ronn did of our trip so far.
Ronn and I had the most awesome day at the Vatican with a private tour given to us by our friend Loreto, compliments of our dear friend Valerio Ventura. Loreto is a camera man for the pope so he knows very well the Vatican and we got to visit the Sistine chapel and met father Bruno of the chapel Santanna, check out www.santanna.va which is a lovely private chapel for the citizens of Vatican city. Truly a world within a world Vatican city has so much history of course and it was quite a treat to see some of it privately. We also got to see the swiss guards who have been guarding the pope for 500 years and had a private tour of their quarters, which was quite interesting. It was becoming quite difficult to walk the streets of Rome with crowds of people recognizing Ronn and constantly asking for photos. Loreto then took us to a private restaurant for the most amazing lunch and Ronn and I headed back to the hotel because he is coming down with a slight cold. Because of this, we decided to decline our invitation to Italian actress Nancy Brilli’s home tonight and stayed in with a bottle of champagne to toast the new year. I wanted Ronn to rest because he has a full week of dance lessons before his first competition next week. I will post some photos and video soon as Ronn feels better and gives me something. Hope you all are having a wonderful new year!
Ronn has a full day of dance lessons and promos for Ballando con le stelle and then we will have a home cooked dinner with some friends. So far, Rome has been raining alot, but very romantic. We have officially started our ongoing honeymoon celebrating now three months of marriage on Christmas. Sara, Ronn’s dance partner is very nice and he is learning the quick step and the waltz right now. He has 10 dances to learn, so this is all very challenging for him. We are both learning Italian and he plans to say something on the show in Italian every week. I’m excited to see him in his first dance which will air Jan 9th. We visited the Vatican, but it was raining so much and there was too many people asking for a photo with Ronn that we will do a private tour of it later this week. Here is a little video of our visit to the Vatican.
Ronn and I both got a good night of sleep and feel much more rested today. He has a full day of photo shoots and dance lessons, but after today has the next four days off to relax and enjoy Rome. We have been invited to have Christmas dinner at fashion designer, Laura Biagiotti’s home and will take lots of video and photos of the sites. The sun is shining today after raining and the city looks beautiful. I plan on doing a bit of Christmas shopping tomorrow and will post my singing “Santa Baby” with Johnny English. It seems like Ronn is starting to enjoy the dance lessons somewhat, although challenging, he looks graceful and picks up on the steps rather quickly. I was very proud of him. Watching the other contestants, it is obviously a lot of hard work and everyone has some fear or something that they are trying to overcome. I think this will be a great event in Ronn’s life. We did our first lesson of Italian this morning and it felt good to get familiar with some basic words and phrases. I’m excited to spend this Christmas in Rome, it will no doubt be a special memory.
Our flight from LA to Frankfurt was pleasant and smooth, but it started snowing as soon as we landed, which caused several delays and cancellations of flights. So we were stuck at the airport lounge waiting for nearly 9 hours. Ronn of course had fans from Egypt, Sweden and Germany on hand asking for autographs and photos. But, the lounge was completely full and the desk had a long line of people waiting the whole night for flight changes. It looked as though we were for sure going to have to spend the night in Frankfurt. I guess luck was on our side because we had the last flight out and arrived in Rome at about 1am. Needless to say, Ronn and I both couldn’t wait to sleep and sleep we did. We woke up today at 5pm, so we slept for about 14 hours! We don’t plan on leaving the room until tomorrow morning and am now catching up on emails. Thank God for sleep, it felt so good to wake up rested. Will keep you guys posted on our adventure here in Roma, so check back often.
Okay after a stressful hectic and very exhausting week, Ronn and I made it to the airport only to be told our flight is 3 hours delayed. So we are resting comfortably in the lounge and catching up with emails, drinking bloody marys and trying to learn some Italian. Personally, I never have liked traveling around this time of the year because of all the bad weather, would like nothing better than to stay home in front of the fireplace and wrap presents. Needless to say I got no Christmas shopping done this year, barely got Christmas cards out, but I plan to catch up on that in Rome, as well as, learn some Italian and study for my real estate license, finish my next book and blog of course. The most important thing is that Ronn and I can finally relax at least for the next few hours and maybe catch up on movies while flying. Hope you all are traveling safe and get to your destinations in time for Santa’s arrival.
Ronn is appearing on Italy’s version of “Dancing with the Stars” and over the next three months will be making trips back and forth to Rome nearly every weekend. It will be a big challenge for him because he will also be doing B&B and practicing dance routines with his partner here at home. He was on the show in 2007 and did the “Tango.” Although, I thought he did a wonderful job, he had only a few hours to learn the dance, so it was alot of pressure on him and it isn’t something he most comfortable with like acting or singing. So I’m going with him for love and support this trip and it will be nice to celebrate our first Christmas and New Year there together as a married couple. Check out his Tango on the show from 2007
Okay I’m finally getting around to Ebay and I apologize for how long it’s taken to get things going again, but for the next two weeks only Ronn and I both will be putting up some cool things with NO RESERVE, so check them out and start bidding. You can get Ronn’s scarf right now ! and his limited edition tour CD that features “Baby Come Back”, these are limited so when they are gone they are gone! If you haven’t read or purchased my book yet, now is the time. those are also limited for signatures, as I only have a few on hand to autograph. During Christmas through New Year’s we won’t be processing any orders because we will be out of town, so happy bidding for the next two weeks!
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.
Susan Flannery organized a beautiful wedding supper to celebrate our recent nuptials at the gorgeous Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. It was held in the private dining room off of the elaborate kitchen and guests included, John McCook and his lovely wife Laurette, Ian Buchanan, Katherine Kelly Lang and her husband Alex, Maria and Billy Bell and our gracious host Brad Bell and his wife Colleen. The menu was absolutely amazing and the private chef told us about each course before their presentation. We ended the evening wedding cake and more champagne. We have certainly had our share of that in the past few weeks, hahaha. Since this is Ronn’s second family, we were, needless to say, thrilled and grateful for this amazing opportunity to share our joy with them. Here is a clip of the evening.
Last night the whole family got dressed up for Halloween parties. I was a devilish girl, Creason a cat, Calee “Little Red Riding Hood” and Ronn was a second mouse with very large ears. He’s been talking about being this second mouse ever since he heard the phrase, “The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.” So he put in these horrible looking teeth, wrote that phrase on a t-shirt with blood splatters and went around the neighborhood with me. I had a devilish good time with him and was happy to see him bring that second mouse to life. This year was the first time Hef didn’t have his own Halloween party, seems the mansion is now being rented out for other’s to throw parties and Hef is just attending them now with a few of his close friends. Things change and now that I’m a married woman I must now stay closer to home for these times. It’s fun in our neighborhood, kids come from all over to see the decorations and trick o’ treat. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did!
Ronn and I attended a dinner given by Prince Albert of Monaco at the Beverly Hills Hotel last night. It was a wonderful night filled with great sushi, cocktails and various appetizers. Many of Ronn’s cast mates were there, as well as, key producers and various people in the entertainment industry. Prince Albert is preparing for Monaco’s 50th anniversary next year of the “Golden Nymph” awards and has invited alot of Hollywood to attend, as well as, film there in that beautiful country. Ronn is excited about the possibility of performing at next year’s event and Prince Albert seemed thrilled at the prospect of it. Since B&B is the most watched show in the world and received that award this year for it, we are anticipating an exciting year next Summer at the 50th anniversary party. Israel and Dubai also expressed interest in Ronn making appearances in their countries, so we are very excited about all of this. Seems like 2010 is going to a traveling year for the Moss family, hummm maybe we can have a honeymoon in each country???
Today Ronn and I are spending the day with family and going to a street fair, then we are off to visit some friends and then have dinner with our neighbor. I did a lot of cooking yesterday so this is a welcomed delight. I am still car shopping but have my eye on the BMW 328i convertible. Right now I’m driving a rental Kia, hahaha. I can’t believe Halloween is around the corner and I’m not sure what I will dress up as this year. We have several parties to attend, so it should be fun, but it’s always a problem getting Ronn into a costume. With the wedding and family visiting I just haven’t had time to focus on costumes this year, so it may be a last minute thing to put something together. I really enjoy Sundays and just adore hanging out with my family or being alone with Ronn. We always have fun, so today should be a good one. I’m so happy everyone is enjoying the wedding album. It makes me happy to look at each and every picture and I can’t wait to see our wedding video! I feel very blessed, happy and content. Hope you all have an awesome Sunday with your family.
I kicked off the weekend with a night out with the girls for drinks at the Beverly Hills hotel’s 1912 bar and lounge. We had a blast as usual. Then Ronn and I took his relatives visiting from Australia to the Reagan Library. It was a lot of fun and we got to go on board Air Force one. Ronn and I attended the Desi Geestman annual charity event and surprised them with a check for $10,000. We felt so bad we didn’t win the Newlywed Game prize so we gave it to them anyway. It was a lovely evening under the stars with many soap stars in attendance. We then had a wonderful wedding reception thrown for us by our friends Bob and Kira Lorsch It was also Kira’s birthday so we combined it with wedding cake compliments of my dear friend and bridesmaid Cindy Margolis and birthday ice cream, champagne, martinis and yummy appetizers. It was out by the pool and the weather was gorgeous. Many of Ronn’s B &; B cast and crew friends were there. I need to now take a break from too much champagne!
