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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Angie Everhart

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

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

Michael Moebius

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

 

This Thanksgiving was the first time Ronn and I have missed having turkey, but due to Katherine Kelly Lang’s schedule on B&B, we were trying to make this campaign for Chiarelli furniture work, thus traveling the day before Thanksgiving to Italy. I figured an Italian Thanksgiving wouldn’t be so bad, given how much we love Italian food. And traveling abroad the day before Thanksgiving wasn’t bad at all and quite pleasant actually.

We first stopped in Milan for Ronn to do an appearance on the popular Italian show, “Verissimo.” Then we would travel on to Bari, Italy which is in Puglia. How I wished we had more time to visit our special place, Borgo Egnazia, where we renewed our vows last year, but due to my upcoming surgery, we couldn’t stay in our beloved seconda casa longer. Ronn was asked to make a special appearance on “Ballando Con Le Stelle” and to do a Ski show, but it would be impossible due to my surgery, thus our trip was only a week this time. You can view the Verissimo interview by clicking the link below.

Visiting and catching up with Katherine Kelly Lang was fun as usual and the Chiarelli campaign was a big success that put a nice touch on our Italian Thanksgiving weekend. We had the most wonderful food and made some new friends that we are planning to revisit Puglia next year to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and our 10th year together. I was quite to surprised to have so many fans asking for my photo and autograph this trip. Seems we have quite a lot of followers for the blog out there and Ronn is obviously loved more than ever, so taking photos is always endless. It’s so beautiful to see and feel the love from Italy, as always.

As always, our trip is never complete without visiting Rome and our soul sister, Lavinia Biagiotti at the gorgeous castle she shares with her mother Laura. We are so at home there and it’s a great place to relax for Ronn. So even though we didn’t have turkey this Thanksgiving, we are still thankful for having visited our seconda casa surrounded by such loving fans and friends. 

 

It had been 10 years since I’d done an autograph show on the east coast, but I knew from fans online that we were welcomed with open arms. Ronn had never done a show before and his dear friend Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira was a veteran of them, so it was a great excuse to visit with her and see a little of Boston. Dennis “Fly” Amero from the group “Orleans” lives there and Boston has always been a city both Ronn and I wanted to get to know better.

I had planned this show months ago and now with our tight schedule of traveling to Italy, we only had one day in between these two trips before my big surgery. So I wanted to have a little fun also. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun at the Boston Megafest and east coast fans are awesome. Ronn ran into Three Dog Night’s lead singer, Chuck Negron and Mark Lyndsey from “Paul Revere and the Raiders” who both performed at the kickass Boston Megafest afterparty Saturday night. They all wanted Ronn to join in and perform, but he was a bit tired from the overwhelming fans that day.

So tonight we had drinks with Cassandra Peterson and caught up with her as we relaxed and just watched the “American Music Awards” so that we can do a bit of sightseeing in the morning before flying back home tomorrow. The highlight of my weekend was meeting the one and only  Barbara Eden. As a kid I always watched, “I Dreamed of Jeannie” whenever I was sick to feel better and laugh. I told her this and she was gracious enough to sign a poster with Bill Daley for me, as well as take a much cherished photo with me for my upcoming hospital stay.

Ronn & Cassandra Peterson.11.2013 Devin & Barbara Eden.11.2013

Boston Megafest will always be special for us now because of this weekend and the fact that so much love and fun was all around me sending positive vibes for my upcoming surgery. We got to see the first snow flurry of the season and really enjoyed our weekend with so many amazing characters from the Boston Megafest show. We want to thank Dave and Brian for showing us around Boston and being so awesome in making our weekend special. 

This past weekend we had so much fun with old friends like German pop/pinup artist Michael Moebius, as we attended several fashion related events. We started with the book signing of fame musician photographer, John Varvatos and ran into Brooke Burke and David Charvet, along with other notable musicians, such as, Lionel Richie and “The Scorpions Bass player, Ralph Reckerman. Then we went to Flaunt magazine’s party for Selena Gomez. Rock n roll never looked so good and fashion and rock is still the place to be.  I could tell that being around all these musicians and artistic people that Ronn is embarking on an exciting new chapter of his life. He is still running into many familiar faces from the past, such as one of Player’s photographers  Brad Elterman.

Bobbie Eakes had asked Ronn to be her surprise guest in her Palm Springs concert along with “The Cars” guitarist, Elliot Easton and ex-Thorne, B&B castmate, Jeff Tracta. This would also include a private after party that seemed like a class reunion. Eva LaRue, Sean Kanan and Tristian Rogers were just a few that were in attendance.  Bobbie put on an awesome performance that included rock, pop and country songs, which  earned her a well deserved standing ovation. It was my first time seeing her perform and let me tell you that girl can sing her cute little tush off! So I’m happy to announce an upcoming concert next spring that will include her singing with Ronn and a few other notable soap stars. This could also become a European tour of it’s own.

Bobbie & Ronn

Bobbie’s concert showcased her background as Miss Georgia, her musical roots with her band, “Big Trouble” and songs from her favorite musicians such as, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Davy Jones and Adele. Bobbie named her show, “Turn The Page” and gave an amazing rendition of Bob Seger’s song, which symbolized her journey from music to acting and back to her passion, music which she does so damn well. I predict we see more of Bobbie’s amazing talents musically in this new chapter of her life and was so happy she could share this with Ronn and her former B&B husband, Jeff Tracta.

 

Speaking of new chapters, Jeff Tracta has become the world’s greatest voice impressionist, comedian and singer in his own sold out live performances in Las Vegas. He is incredibly talented and we can’t wait to catch one of his shows. I think Ronn joins the ranks with Bobbie and Jeff in starting new exciting chapters of their lives doing what they passionately love and showcasing their God given talents and with that you can never go wrong.

Elliot Easton, Ronn, Bobbie & Jeff

We ended our lovely weekend attending a birthday party for publicist, Anthony Turk and it was so fun to hang out with Patrika Darbo, David Sheen and Eva LaRue.  As we turn the pages of our lives into exciting new chapters we are quite sure music and fashion will be a part of that.

It’s been a fun and busy week starting out with supporting our friend photographer Christopher Ameruoso and the charity, “Last Chance For Animals.” It was a lovely event held at “The Simpsons” producer Sam Simon’s home. A wonderful vegan meal and memorable performances by Jose Filiciano entertained friends like Tippi Hedren and Steve Valentine. We then visited our Playboy family at the mansion and met up with German artist Michael Moebius before we went on to attend a dinner with Anna Strasberg at her home.

I started to come down with a slight sore throat and wanted to take it easy so I didn’t get sick for Halloween and our upcoming Live chat on Livestream. This is something Ronn and I are looking forward to doing with you guys each and every week, even when we travel.  Speaking of travel, we have our first upcoming autograph appearance together in Boston, for the Boston Megafest. I just love Boston and can’t wait to see everyone on the east coast! And we may be in Italy shortly afterwards for another campaign Ronn is doing.

Michael & Dev copy

I have Finland’s famous chef Henri Alen coming to do a gumbo battle with me in a couple of weeks for his show, “American Food Battle.” This really should be fun and it’s something I’m especially looking forward to. But in the meantime, I’m looking forward to a great Halloween party tomorrow evening and our live chat with you guys! So here’s to wishing that you all have a safe and happy Halloween!

Our road trip to the beach towns of Northern California had wonderful moments of clean fresh air, great seafood and beautiful sunsets. We really enjoyed our stay at the West Cliff Inn in Santa Cruz and we plan to stay there every time we visit Creason. The West Cliff feels like you are staying at your own home. They have a wonderful breakfast variety of home made muffins, quiche, eggs, french toast and juices that is included in your stay. Afternoon wine and cheese along with home made cookies in the late afternoon and a great view of the beach.

West Cliff Inn

UCSC with Creason

We loved strolling around the campus of UCSC while Creason gave us a tour of their amazing library and the redwood forest. The shops and restaurants were lovely and we even found a great Cajun restaurant! As we made our way back home, we decided to stop in Monterey to see the aquarium and have lunch in Carmel. It’s so easy to fall in love with these quaint little beach communities and window shop in their cute little boutiques. We made our way back  south to Atascadero, which is outside of Paso Robles and stayed at the Carlton Hotel. This hotel is so adorable and is a mini boutique hotel that is very comfortable. 

Santa Cruz Sunset

Since we stopped off in Paso Robles on the way up to Santa Cruz and had a great tour of the Opolo vineyard that was personally given to us by owner, Rick Quinn, we wanted to see Atascadero before stopping for lunch in Santa Barbara. I think if you are traveling by car for more than a couple of hours this is a great way to see smaller communities and experience a bit of their culture, plus it’s romantic and fun.

Opolo Winery & Rick Quinn

Although this was our first time visiting most of these Northern California beach towns, we now have our favorite spots that we will stop off and revisit more often. This was a special weekend for us for it was a lot of firsts for me. It was my first time in Santa Cruz, the first time I saw sea lions and my first visit to UCSC. Ronn and I are now looking forward to more road trips to Northern California and hope to make it up to San Francisco next time.

It’s hard to believe that Ronn is a native Californian and there are many gorgeous places he has yet to visit. We wanted to find a free weekend to visit Creason who is away at college and both of us have never been to Santa Cruz. Creason has been telling us how gorgeous it is for months now, and Ronn loves a colder climate, so we thought this would be the perfect time of the year to make our journey to Santa Cruz.

Joe & Marsha copy

It’s a journey being in a car for five hours with even with the best of mates, this can sometimes be challenging. How many of you can relate to what I’m trying to say here? You’re giving out directions to a place you both have never been and he passes up an exit and thinks you don’t know what the hell you are talking about? Get my drift?  So since I’ve been with my amazingly adorable husband for nearly a decade, I can safely attest being with him in a car for five hours under these circumstances is not always fun for me and I sometime want to scream from frustration!

devronn vineyard copy

So we decided to break our trip up and make it fun. As you know by now, we love red wines and wine tasting in Paso Robles sounded great since we would of course be passing through on our journey to Santa Cruz. Plus it broke the trip in half, so I found the cutest bed and breakfast that overlooks a small, but picturesque vineyard called, “Honey Oak House at Laraneta Vineyards in Templeton, just outside of Paso Robles.

vineyard copy

The owners are Joe and Melinda who started their winery and flavored olive oil on their 20 acre vineyard.  You feel like you are staying over at your best friend’s house for the night. We had a lovely wine tasting of their superb wines and shared a bottle of Cabernet with Bob and Marsha who were traveling from San Francisco. Turns out Bob was from Louisiana with family from guess where? Finland!

joe & Melinda copy

So after a few laughs about some of our coincidental stories and a  bottle of wine watching the sunset, we were ready to settle in for the evening. Tomorrow we will be in Santa Cruz with only a couple more hours in the car, hopefully with no directional issues. I told Ronn maybe I should drive and he could navigate, but he didn’t seem to like that idea very much, hmm I wonder why?

It seems like the summer flew by so fast for us and it’s already almost Halloween, where does the time go? Ronn has been in and out of town with the “Sail Rock” tour most of the summer and is about to finish it with a Canadian concert date scheduled for Oct 8th in Toronto. During the summer actress, Victoria Rowell, known for her role as Dru on “The Young And The Restless” called Ronn about a role on a new project she was writing. Victoria was anxious for Ronn to read, “The Rich And The Ruthless,” a satire comedy about the making of you guessed it, a soap opera. Apparently, Victoria wrote a part especially for her “Diagnosis Murder co-star, Dick Van Dyke and Dick just couldn’t do the part even though it was written especially for him. But, Victoria thought Ronn could totally fill in for Mr. Van Dyke, are you following me here?

So “The Rich And The Ruthless” will shoot sometime before Thanksgiving and Ronn thinks the project is hysterical. In addition to writing for television, Victoria has written a best selling novel, “Secrets of A Soap Opera Diva.” and just released her latest follow up novel, “The Young and The Ruthless.”  So I think she’s well qualified to bring such a project to fruition and with Ronn on board, their Aussie fans should be very happy indeed. What’s cool about “The Rich And The Ruthless” is that you can contribute and be a part of the making of this pilot. Check it out and see how here. I’m thinking Victoria and the cast of the “Rich And The Ruthless” can all join Player in the Bahamas next February on the Norwegian Pearl Cruise Line to rock out with “The Yacht Rock Revue and Player! together on this trip of a lifetime. You too can join us in the Bahamas!

In the meantime, we will look forward to the filming of Rich And The Ruthless and I of course, will keep you guys posted on any and all Player appearances! 

We had a wonderful weekend spent with several friends we hadn’t seen in a while, such as Katherine Kelly Lang. I was happy to cook a fun dinner for her and our young talented writer/director Ivan Silvestrini who is the writer/director of the acclaimed webseries, “Stuck.” Ivan is developing the perfect project for Ronn and Kelly to star in and just completed his first feature film, “Come Non Detto” a comedy about a gay guy who has a hard time coming out with his parents. We think Ivan is a sheer talent and a wonderful person and really enjoyed the film.

KKL and Ivan SilvestriniIMG_0072

So I think good vibrations are in order for Ronn and Kelly to reunite in a say a romantic comedy? Then Ronn and I attended the birthday party of producer David McKenzie at the Staple center for a hockey game that was held in a private suite. It was such a lovely evening and so nice to see one of my favorite gal pals, Kira Reed Lorsch. We met English actor, Gregg Sulkin who starred in the Disney series, “Wizards of Waverly Place” as Selena Gomez’ boyfriend.

Gregg SulkinIMG_5785

Ronn is getting ready to read a script for a 10 hour mini series that he will be working on with David McKenzie which I will give you details on soon. But what I can tell you is that this will be a terrific, amazing project that you will surely love and you will get to see Ronn on TV again soon! In addition to trying to finish the “Sail Rock” tour, Player will now do a possible tour in Finland this January.

IMG_0487

So as you can see, there are good vibrations everywhere with music, movies and television projects in the works. We are just trying to find the time to fit it all in before and after the upcoming holidays which is just around the corner. I can’t believe how fast this year is going by! Tomorrow night we ride our Harley’s to the DVD release party premiere of “Easy Rider, The Ride Back” in Marina Del Rey at Bartel’s Harley Davidson. The producer of that film is also the producer/writer of the upcoming “411” movie that Ronn will be directing.

In addition to all of this, Ronn and Peter Beckett did a very cool photo shoot with photographer Christopher Ameruoso in Elvis Presley’s actual sunglasses as part of a cool book of talented stars all wearing Elvis’ glasses, and you all know how much I love Elvis! So I think there will be good vibrations in celebrating all the exciting new upcoming projects and as usual I will keep you posted as they continue to evolve, but in the meantime enjoy the second installment of “Finland’s Game of Emotions.”

 

As you all know we went to Finland last month for Ronn  to do a secret project that had all of the Finns guessing. We now know that the first of this series has been released and we are able to talk about the experience we had doing this wonderful, creative project. Ronn was hired by Veikkaus known for their lottery commercials that run with many of Finland’s athletes.  They decided to do a series with some of their most famous athletes portraying characters in “Game Of Emotions.”

pix2

“Game Of Emotions” will continue to release other segments online and on TV in Finland as an ongoing campaign for their lottery. Apparently, Finland has never seen their athletes as actors and with each segment ending with Ronn as their long lost father, the drama will continue to unfold into even more hilarious segments that will have you on the floor laughing. This shoot went so well and was so fun that it kept all of us laughing on the set and we could feel this was indeed a winner!

 

So I’m sure as it continues to unfold you will see a different side of those Finnish athletes and a different side of Ronn in this satire of a serial drama that was so cleverly done in an ad campaign for the Finland lottery. “Game of Emotions” is unlike anything Finland has seen in TV ads. As we move into our own sports season with football, Finland moves into soccer and ice skating, so having their familiar athletes portray characters like this is very comical and unusual for them to see.

pix6

We are hoping that “Game of Emotions” will be enjoyed this season as much as we all enjoyed the making of it. And we hope to have any excuse to visit our beloved Finns again!

IMG_0334

 

It was a short, but really impressive trip to Finland, especially for me because I’d never been there. We arrived early Saturday morning from a pleasant flight on Finnair, an extremely nice comfortable airline with great service. This is a must for us traveling abroad. Ronn was shooting a mystery project that I’m not allowed to reveal yet, but can tell you it’s very clever and will be a big success from what I can see. The weather was a bit cold and rainy at first, which is never a problem for Ronn because he loves it. But the sun shined towards the end of each day which made us able to do a little of sightseeing in between shooting.

20130818_163053_resized

 

The Fins have what is called, “Restaurant Day” in which anyone can go online and feature their dishes on that day to the public and I’ve never seen so many people outside enjoying the sunshine as I did that day. We ran across a bunch of guys cooking Mexican food who wanted us to join them and of course take photos with Ronn. Seems the Finnish people love Ronn very much and we couldn’t have felt more welcome.

Ronn in Helsinki copy

I was very impressed with how organized and efficient the Finnish people are with almost everything. Their food and design was very unique and interesting to their culture and they seem to appreciate a variety of things. I find them also very creative and learned alot about their culture. The extreme weather they have learned to endure makes them very strong and also extremely creative I think.

soccer copy

We had  lovely weather when we attended the soccer game and Ronn presented the Helsinki team with a huge trophy. Seems everyone was speculating on what brought Ronn to Helsinki and the press was super curious. We have all laughed at all the speculations which ranged from Finland’s TV version of “Big Brother” and “Dancing With The Stars” to a new Finnish soap version of “The Bold and The Beautiful.”

soccer trophy copy

We also had the chance to see Yoko Ono in concert last night in a covered tent. It’s not everyday you get to see Yoko Ono who is 80 years old perform in a tent, but it was quite nice. Her performance is nothing short of eccentric and unique to her and I really enjoyed it. I feel you must listen to her with your eyes closed to really grasp the spirituality of what she does with her voice.

yoko copy

We then had the most unique and interesting coincidence in finding a restaurant after the concert. Apparently, most of the restaurants in Helsinki are closed on Monday and Tuesdays and our production crew wanted to find a good place for us to go. Ronn had retweeted fame chef Henri Alen who owns the restaurant “Muru” and the producers called him to ask if he could recommend a place for us to go. Henri generously invited us to his second and newer French restaurant, “Pastis” and had the most amazing dinner. I had steak and french fries cooked in truffle oil that was to die for.

Henri Alen copysteak copy

Henri explained that he was a bit in shock when the producers called him because he was a big fan of Ronn’s music and the chefs in his kitchen listened to Ronn’s solo CDs all the time. So it was a thrill for him to have us there and he happily gave me a private tour of the kitchen along with a cookbook from “Muru” which I look forward to visiting the next time we are in Helsinki, which could be very soon! I challenged Henri to a gumbo cook off and Ronn and I are considering bringing, “Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning” to Finland for a BBQ on restaurant day.

Devronn Pastis copy 2

So as we board our flight back to Salt Lake City in time for Player’s performance tonight, we bring a little bit of Helsinki with us in our hearts. The producers of this project presented Ronn with a Suunto watch that he absolutely loves and will cherish. In time you will all know what the secret project is in September. We have fallen in love with this endearing place and hope to return to visit again very soon.

This past weekend to Paso Robles was a first for both Ronn and I. We were there for Player’s concert lineup on the Sail Rock tour along with Firefall, Orleans, Al Stewart and Christopher Cross. So Peter and Eden thought we should naturally go up a day early and do some wine tasting. The drive was a pleasant one and the weather couldn’t have been more beautiful. There are so many great wines from the Paso Robles region and for years our neighbors who own the wine, “Opolo” has invited us to their annual wine festival of grape stomping, music and BBQ feasting galore. But, somehow between Ronn’s schedule of work and travel, we have never been able to make it to the winery until this past weekend.

We happen to also know the Hunt family which also produce a terrific wine from Paso Robles and stopped off at their vineyard for a tasting, along with the Ancient Peak, Cass and Tobin James wineries. Needless to say we had great time and I can attest to the fact that the wines of this region are amazing.

The concert drew a terrific crowd that enjoyed the fair and the moonlit breeziness of the night since the concert was set outdoors. My girlfriend Sue and her friend Brenda had a great time and joined us backstage afterwards where we were hanging out with Al Stewart and his girlfriend Jill. As we were saying goodbye, Jill miss her step into the van and fell backwards in a hard fall that ended up breaking her finger! It was a quite a hard fall and a terrible freakish accident. We all felt terrible watching her finger swell as the ambulance came to take her to the hospital. She was remarkably calm and all she and Al could talk about was having us all get together for a dinner party at their place once the tour was over.

Such a lovely couple that we are sending love and light to right now for Jill to have a speedy recovery. I don’t think any of us will forget our past weekend in Paso Robles for many reasons. Great wine, friends old and new, music and serene scenery made it memorable enough to say, we will be back!

This has truly been the most magical birthday ever for me and I’ve been celebrating it the entire month of June. Kicking it off with the success of the Canyon Club’s Player performance and extending it to our seconda casa in Roma, Firenze and Venezia with some of our most cherished friends. 50 was always a number I was afraid of in the past because my mom died of breast cancer at that age. I had times when I thought I wouldn’t make it in life to see that number and now I’m so happy and vibrant with my life that it’s indeed just a number to me. I think I will truly love my 50s and will never forget all the love and celebration surrounding this birthday.

IMG_1012IMG_1010

The profound synchronicity of events, people and places that we have experienced during this trip is too much to put in mere words. I feel like the universe has bestowed an array of beautiful gifts, new friendships and love that I just can’t explain. Only to say it’s been pure magic. The fact that we had a huge full moon to boot with me being the ultimate Cancer moon child was no coincidence. It was meant to be a sign that my thoughts, passion and love of life will continue to flourish and I plan to give even more of myself to this world with great eagerness and compassion.

IMG_1044

It’s always been my desire to make my life have meaning beyond mere success of just what I’ve chosen to do in this lifetime. I want to leave something behind that is much bigger than me and nothing is more important to me than giving back to those in need. I so admire women like Audrey Hepburn who did that in spades during her lifetime. So I believe this birthday of my turning a half of a century will mark what my new clear path is from now on and that is to continue to inspire and enlighten others through example. This is a true blessing to have my life take this new path now.

IMG_1029

Because of this new path I have developed a new website for women that is about other dynamic women of this world that are making a difference and it’s called woman to woman. I’m happy to launch it with two amazing women that have already made such great marks on society in this world, supermodel, Kelly Emberg and Hollywood icon, Mamie Van Doren. So please take a look at www.womantowoman.tv and leave a comment on what you think.

Here are a few photos from our trip to gorgeous Venezia and our stop in Firenze for the Laura Biagiotti Doll Collection presentation, which was absolutely amazing! Always the perfect ending to our stay in Roma is when we spend time with our beloved Lavinia and Laura Biagiotti, whom we think of as family. Thank you as always for your wonderful hospitality and for the birthday blessings you have given to me on this milestone. A new Ronn’s Garage is coming with more details from our trip!

It’s been another amazing adventure in the southern part of Sicily here in beautiful Taormina for the prestigious annual film festival. Arriving here was quite an ordeal because Ronn’s luggage was lost the first few days and he had no clothing at all. Thank goodness there was a Taormina film festival t-shirt in his gift bag! Every night has started out with cocktails and photos with some of Europe’s most elite that have gathered to view different films every night in the 2300 year old outdoor theater that holds about 5000 people.

20130618_101532_resized

The first night’s premiere of “Man of Steel” honored Russell Crowe with an award for his body of work and featured the cast of the newly released, “Man of Steel” which I must say was amazing to watch in such an outdoor arena.  After the screening there was a private elegant dinner held at the roof top of an amazing restaurant. This has been the routine each night as a different star has been honored with an award, including my hubby Ronn who has had a group of young teenage girls following him around since we arrived. They seem to be everywhere and it’s amazing how much they seem to adore my hubby.

It’s become impossible to walk around Taormina with Ronn because he draws a huge crowd for photos and autographs constantly, which he’s very gracious about doing, but it can become rather stifling at times to get from place to place and the crowd seems to get larger and larger with tons of young women!

It was a pleasant surprise to see Prince Albert of Monaco here for a special presentation of his green energy foundation and as a result we have now been invited to Monaco for other interesting appearances that Ronn will be making in the future. Each night has truly been a wonderful beautiful presentation of awards and films both American and Italian that have been followed by the most amazing dinner parties. Tiziana Rocca put on this event and we are proud and honored to have been a part of this wonderful week.

Last night Jeremy Irons was honored and tonight Meg Ryan is being honored, but I felt the need to relax and stay in for the evening. Each night’s dinner is at a different restaurant or hotel around Taormina so it’s easily becoming a very special week for us. We have been meeting some terrific and interesting people from all over the world and there is many  wonderful opportunities brewing for Ronn to work in film, as well as, invitations to bring PLAYER to perform in places in and around Europe.

We are still celebrating my birthday and will continue to celebrate with a party being thrown for me next week in Rome by Prince Bassam Omar Salame’, his gorgeous wife and Lamia Khashoggi, one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met. Turns out it was also Prince Salame’s birthday and he wishes to continue to celebrate my big milestone in Rome and also in Monaco later this summer. Needless to say, this is turning into the most amazing birthday ever for me and one I’ll never forget and am truly grateful and blessed to be celebrating with these amazingly beautiful people.

Sadly we have lost one of our guests who was coming in to attend the festival, James Gandolfini, aka Tony Soprano had a sudden apparent heart attack last night in Rome. So a special tribute is being paid to him tonight at the festival.

I know you’ve heard us say that Italy is our second home and it is looking more and more that way. The Italians have had a love affair with Ronn for decades now and he seems to visit that country more than any other. It’s hard to say no to any invitation because there are so many beautiful places to visit in Italy. This upcoming invitation is one that I am extremely excited about because it falls around my big 50th birthday in June and it’s a place I’ve never been in Sicily. 

Ronn has been invited to attend the prestigious 59th Taormina Film Festival held in the beautiful scenario of the ancient Greek-Roman monument “Teatro Antico”, facing the Etna volcano, in the heart of the Mediterranean area. Past actors such as,  Robert De Niro, Oliver Stone, Sophia Loren, Colin Firth have had the honor of being asked to do a presentation at this beautiful theater that is embedded in a rock and only holds about 19,000 people. Here is a link to the festival for more information Taormina Film Festival 2013

I take this is as another gift from the universe that we are on the right path in our exciting new career ventures and the fact that this invitation falls near my big birthday makes me so happy to again visit another beautiful place in Italy. So here are some pics of the beautiful outdoor theater and the coast of Sicily. I’m imagining my morning cappuccinos now.

Dev & Lori at the Tuscan villa

The past few days spent with our Italian friends who are very much family to us felt so surreal.  Our last days in the gorgeous countryside of Tuscany was set in a quaint “Eco-chic” Boutique farm , TENUTA CHIUDENDONE . Our host was Francesco Cavallini, owner of Emilio Cavallini who has been the premier fashion tights company to many designers all over the world since 1972. We got to tour the factory where they make them and was given so many designs to take home. Lori was in sheer pantyhose heaven and Francesco’s father is a true artist in the unique world of fashion tights.

We were treated to the finest  Tuscan wines at a wonderful wine tasting compliments of, Varramista Winery  and then the highlight of our trip there was a visit to the local supermarket with Ronn. I wanted Francesco and his girlfriend Isabella to show me how to cook a whole fish Tuscan style, so we stopped at the market and even the butcher wanted a picture with Ronn! Lori and I laughed so hard at the reaction from everyone,  including grandmothers and children who seemed to be drawn to Ronn for photos. I will show you guys what I learned about cooking a whole Sea Bass later on Ronn’s Garage. We traveled Saturday by train back to Rome for our final two days in Italy so that we could spend some quality time with the lovely Laura Biagiotti and my Italian sister Lavinia.They always make us feel so at home at the Biagiotti Castle. We topped off our evening with champagne at the Biagiotti boutique. Katherine Kelly Lang joined us and then went back to the castle for an amazing home cooked dinner with Laura. It was such a pleasure to introduce KKL to Laura and turns out, it was a special holiday for Italy was honoring St. Raffelle. The moon was so bright and full that we all felt the aura of excitement and anticipation deep into the night as a flutter of rain drops softly kissed us. Soon a pouring rain storm washed away the smoldering heat and humidity of the summer, and a change of season seemed to happen before our eyes with the breeziness of fall that is so welcomed now.  I started to feel a bit of a cold coming on so I decided to rest in between lunch and dinner on Sunday. Ronn and Lavinia went for a walk and to my surprise, Ronn came back with a perfectly small heart shaped rock he found on the Biagiotti property from their afternoon stroll. I was so amazed and surprised to get this from him and took it as an omen to all the wonderful things that are happening in our lives now.

My Heart shaped Rocks

It’s my gratitude rock, a symbol of our rock solid love that has conquered so much in the past few months. As some you may remember, Ronn found a large heart shaped rock walking on the beach in Malibu a few years ago, so now I have that one next to me in our bedroom and this little one with me at all times. I showed Laura the rock and she said with great flair, “Now, let’s go find a Picasso at the flea market!” Because I admire so much Laura’s wisdom, knowledge and sixth sense, I knew our trip to the flea market was something special she wanted to share with us. And there I found the cutest outfit in the latest fashionable color of deep green for this fall that I will can’t wait to wear with pride. Lavinia wanted to take us to the wedding of chef Filippo La Mantia and his bride, Stefania, which was hailed the most elite party in Rome, and such a glamourous end to our  awesome trip. Lori and I got dressed up for the party and made quite an entrance with Ronn, who epitomized Rock Star.

Dev, Eleonora, Ronn & Lori

There we met some of the most prestigious people in Rome, including ballerina, Eleonora Abbagnato.  Lavinia grew up watching Eleonora dance and to meet her was an honor, especially since I’ve never seen a ballet. So she invited me to see her dance in Paris! Being at this party was like seeing a fashion show of the most beautiful people, each designer dress prettier than the next and the most delicious food. It was hard to move because everyone was coming to meet Ronn for photos, but Lori and I watched the whole scene in awe of every minute. Lavinia was so proud to introduce Ronn to everyone there and thus put a thrilling end to another memorable trip in our second home. This change of season is looking very promising and bright, so I’m sure another trip to Italy will be happening very soon!

Lori, Dev, Ronn, Lavinia

We spent a lovely afternoon with Lavinia Biagiotti and Katherine Kelly Lang, who gave me the most beautiful kaftan, literally off her back!

KKL’s Kaftans

Love those girls so much and am grateful to have such friends. Lori was in awe of all the shopping available in the center of Rome, so the whole day was great, although quite hot. Last night we arrived by train from Rome to Florence, which was cooler and rainy and then drove by car to stay with our friends Isabella and Francesco at his bed and breakfast farm. We are in our own spacious apartment surrounded by what seems to be vivid green vineyards. So peaceful and relaxing, it’s just what Ronn needs right now.

Lori & her white truffle pasta

We had dinner at the “Rosso Antico Osteria Moderna” restaurant, which was our best meal so far. I was so impressed with the white truffle sauce that I had to see the kitchen and get the recipe from the chef Claudio Buglioni. Apparently, the rare white truffle is only found in this area and they must be found by special trained dogs because they are deep in the ground. The rare white truffle is very expensive and only in season between September and November. If you haven’t tasted white truffle, it’s delicious and has a distinct taste and smell. This region supplies all the white truffles to exclusive areas of the world from this tiny area and the competition to find white truffle can be fierce because it can make the person who finds it very wealthy.

Claudio & Dev

I find Tuscan food to be some of the very best food in the world and have always adored this part of Italy because of it. Last time Ronn and I were here, we brought the kids and stayed with Ronn’s dance partner on “Ballando Con Le Stelle” Sara DiViara, so we hope to see her today. In the meantime, the quest to find a giant white truffle may be on our agenda.  They have offered to have Ronn as the guest star for the annual, “White Truffle Fair” in November, so we may be back then.

Can’t believe we have only a couple more days left of our trip before heading home. Tomorrow we head back to Rome to visit the castle of Laura and Lavinia Biagiotti. I always look forward to the wonderful talks I have with Laura. I can listen to her all day talk about history, art and her rare finds at flea markets, which she is taking us to on Sunday before we attend a wedding. So our trip is nice and relaxing now and the memories are truly special because everyone makes us feel so at home. It’s funny because every time we come to visit, I have to bring more spices to give to friends that are addicted to it like we are, especially Laura’s cooks. I’m looking forward to perhaps doing a Ronn’s Garage segment from the castle with Lavinia!

It feels like a dream being here on the most beautiful Island of Capri. I didn’t even know much about this area except that most of the elite come here to vacation and it’s one of the most unique places to visit. So being here feels surreal right now because we are still a bit tired from the trek here. No one is as tired as Ronn. He is like the energizer bunny who can keep going till his battery needs charging again, which is now. He always handles everything and everyone so gracefully and professionally and it’s sometimes hard for me to keep up with his pace. Between interviews, fans wanting photos, shootings and dinners, he hardly ever stops when visiting Italy. So it’s a rarity to just relax and enjoy. I’m watching my friend Lori embrace the whole experience with child-like eyes and wonder.  It’s a beautiful present for me to share this with someone like her. Ronn is so loved here and it was great to see him reunite with Katherine Kelly Lang. She’s always so sweet and fun to be around. They started the commercial shoot today very early, so it was bit of day for them both. So much so, that we are staying in and not going to dinner tonight. Just want to chill in our room and relax so that he’s fresh for tomorrow.  The Biagiotti fashion show yesterday was truly amazing and we loved the whole collection! Bright vintage 60’s colors and fun flowing prints made it so special and right up my alley. We went behind the scenes and watched Laura choose some of the models the day before the fashion show and it was an education to watch how much preparation goes into doing a collection for 15 minutes on the runway. Now Laura and Lavinia will start working for the next few months to prepare for the fall fashion show in March. As you know, Ronn and KKL did an appearance in Naples the night before so poor Ronn got no sleep and manage to fly back to Milan for the Biagiotti fashion show before Lori and I joined him and flew right back to Naples.  Getting to Capri, we had to take this hydrofoil boat for 45 minutes and I felt a bit nauseous.  Needless to say, after dinner with the clients for the commercial shoot, we were all dead tired. Then Ronn had to start today with only 3 hours of sleep. He and KKL are re-enacting a scene from Jackie O and Aristotle Onassis’ honeymoon here in Capri. They were in a million dollar wooden boat on some rough waters today filming.  Ronn is playing a dashing boatman that catches Kelly’s eye during chance meetings and there is someone else playing Aristotle. So it’s a very cute and interesting campaign that I am excited to see. Tomorrow is our 3 year wedding anniversary, so it’s extra special that we are just here in the same spot that so many interesting people have vacationed and enjoyed for centuries, including ancient Romans. I feel blessed to have had a second wedding a few months ago in gorgeous Puglia and now to experience our original anniversary in  Capri is unique and special. And we are so grateful to be here to celebrate our special day and I’m so proud of my husband and embracing every moment of our short time here. 

We are back from Puglia and a bit jet lagged still, but the memories will linger for a while. I had never been to southern Italy and must admit was a bit excited to see this region. We stayed the first few days at the Masseria San Domenico  which was where B&B filmed. The food was absolutely amazing, fresh home grown vegetables were so great that’s all I wanted to eat there. The weather was a lot like LA with sunny warm days and cooler nights. A few miles away from the Masseria San Domenico is another newer hotel called, Borgo Egnazia and both places are owned by the same people. The Borgo Egnazia is so romantic and beautifully decorated with an award winning spa. The cast and crew were made to feel at home at both places since some of the crew were staying at the Borgo Egnazia. We were treated to complimentary massages, facials and body scrubs and the whole atmosphere felt like heaven. Two other location days were spent at this gorgeous little town, Alberobello, where all the homes have cone like roof tops  and the town of Polignano a Mare. Both places were a must to see and the people are so nice. Puglia provides 70% of the world’s olive oil and has so many amazing olive trees everywhere. They also provide 10% of Europe’s wine and pasta. At the end of the B&B shoot, Ronn and I moved over to the Borgo Egnazia to stay in one of the 3 bedroom private villas that had it’s own pool. The villa was like our own private little mansion. We invited some of our European friends like German artist Michael Mobius and designer Lavinia Biagiotti to come and share it with us. Ronn and Katherine Kelly Lang did a commercial in Bari after the B&B shoot was over, so this was an added treat to our final day there. Puglia has become a very special place for us and we will surly return. An upcoming special “Ronn’s Garage” episode will be dedicated to our experiences there, truly a magical place for us!

It’s been over a week that we have been in our beloved second home, Italy. As always, we feel the love instantly especially with Ronn, as he has always had a big love affair with beautiful Italia. It seems since, “Ballando con le Stelle” he is more recognized as Ronn instead of Ridge, which is quite nice. After all of the press he did for his PLAYER album with Peter Beckett, we celebrated the release of Lavinia Biagiotti’s book, which is a cute and colorful book that displays tips on fashion. Lavinia is like my sister and she and her mom, Laura always makes us feel at home with them. I’m happy to announce that I will be helping them bring back the beloved fragrance, “Venezia” to America. The fragrance has many fans and requests in America and right now isn’t currently distributed there. I love the smell and right away started getting compliments since I’ve been wearing it. Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood who plays Steffy on B&B fell in love with it instantly also. So we are excited to relaunch “Venezia” in the US now. Since we have said goodbye to our friends in Rome, we are now in beautiful Puglia among the olive groves, which feels like heaven. There is an amazing spa that I’m looking forward to trying and the food has been spectacular. Seems like the vegetables are so fresh and flavorful that is all I want to eat right now. The seafood is also amazing and so is the wine. Needless to say we never go hungry in Italia. The B&B shoot is going very well, quite relaxing with gorgeous days and beautiful nights spent with the cast and crew. There are more of our Italian friends coming later this week to visit with us and Ronn and Katherine Kelly Lang are shooting a cute and funny commercial at the end of the week. Italia is always busy for Ronn with shoots, press and trying to fit so much in with friends in such a short period of time. But, we love Italia and their culture and really do think of it as our second home. A home we hope to spend more and more time in future years.

PLAYER is releasing a new album in Italy and doing press to promote it for a possible European tour. So Peter Beckett is coming to Italy with us tomorrow for some live TV appearances in Milan and Rome. The new album is entitled, “Addiction” and is on the prestigious Frontier’s label. We are very excited about the new released and I’m so happy they used the photo that I took of them! Looking forward to all the exciting things that are happening for PLAYER in the coming year. I know how many fans want to see them play in Europe and now that’s looking like a possibility.  Check out the press release here. Player PR

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LZ0CeB6n80] Ronn opened the show with “Born In The USA” and danced the Quick Step with Sara DiVaira in this opening sequence which was quite nice. We are looking forward to visiting our second home, Italy in the next couple weeks when B&B films in Pulgia. More exciting news coming soon!!

Easter has always been one of my favorite times of the year because it marks the blooming of flowers, spring fashion and new beginnings. There is a freshness in the air and after a cold winter, it’s a welcomed change that makes us smile. This Easter was the first time in eight years that Ronn and I have been apart. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z9YsvpW_Uk] Even though I’ve missed him dearly,  I’ve so enjoyed the quiet stillness of our home all to myself. Good Friday I attended a fun party hosted by Michelle Stafford at her gorgeous home that she has decided to sell. I hung out with Nadia Bjorlin, Brandon Beemer and Christian LeBlanc which always spells out, “Good Time.” Then I had a fabulous dinner cooked by renowned drummer, Frankie Banali and his gorgeous fiance’ Regina Russell. Meanwhile, Ronn flew to Rome for an appearance on a new dance show called, “Ballando Con Te” and spent Easter with Laura and Lavinia Biagiotti. I decided to spend Easter with my neighbor Sue who cooked up a fabulous spread of prime rib and turkey. Her daughter Danielle made some bunny rabbits treats, as we hung out and enjoyed a gorgeous day spent by the pool. So I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Easter. And even though Ronn was missed here at home, he is returning today with many stories from our Italian family I’m sure.

Experiencing Bora Bora was in a nut shell magical. The water is very clear aqua blue that is  absolutely gorgeous and calm. Our every need was taken care of at the St. Regis, which seems to be the honeymoon haven for many couples. I can clearly see why. Upon arrival you are greeted with a flowered lei and taken by a boat that resembles a yacht to the resort where you are then greeted with a drink and a cool towel to feel refreshed. Our over the water bungalow was pretty awesome and a bottle of champagne was waiting for us. We had a candle lit dinner on a sugar white sandy beach and a gorgeous buffet breakfast with everything you can imagine every morning overlooking a pristine private beach. Each day was like heaven waking up to the still water surrounding our spacious bungalow hut. We rode bikes that were all over the resort around and had a couples massage side by side at the spa. We snorkeled and went on an aqua safari, which was quite interesting. You put these space like square helmets on in which you can breath and go down about 10 feet to see all kinds of fish and stingrays. I quite enjoyed that and we took a lot of underwater video and pics. Every evening our bed was turned down and treats of cookies and rose petals that spelled out LOVE was placed on our bed. Each evening we dined at a different restaurant with a different mood. The food on the Island is primarily Asian and French or a combo of both. So one night we had sushi, the next night French and one night we went to a very casual place called, “Bloody Mary’s” which is quite popular for seafood. Mama who owns “Bloody Mary’s” was a big fan of Ronn’s and everyone wanted photos. Seems all of Tahiti loves B&B and Ronn and pretty much everyone we went was the same scenario. I can honestly say Bora Bora is the perfect honeymoon location and we highly recommend it. Hopefully we will get to return for an anniversary. Apparently, they give you a seashell necklace that you are suppose to throw off the boat when you leave that says to the Island you will for sure return again. 

Last night Ronn and I attended a movie screening “Smitty” which starred Peter Fonda, Mira Sorvino and Louis Gossett Jr. It was a heartwarming story about a troubled boy and his dog. This event was to benefit the Ventura Animal Shelter and www.shelterhopepetshop.com. My pals Kira Reed Lorsch and Kim Sill were involved in putting the event together and DevRonn donated spices for the gift bags. It was fun to hang out with Quiet Riot’s drummer, Frankie Banali and his fiancee’ Regina Russell. I was hoping to see Peter Fonda since he directed me in a play many years ago that I did with Vanessa Marcil and Dwight Yoakum. If you haven’t seen “Smitty” it’s a terrific movie that you will for sure enjoy. Today we are packing and getting ready for our belated honeymoon to Bora Bora. It’s been over 2 years since we have been married and we haven’t had time for a honeymoon! In fact, I’ve been with Ronn 8 years and we have never been on a vacation where it wasn’t work related or kid related, so this will be a real treat for us!  We are so looking forward to a quiet time to reflect and enjoy our loving relationship. Ronn is pressed for time right now with upcoming PLAYER press and concerts that are being formulated, as well as, an upcoming remote shoot in Italy for B&B. He is also trying to get the first show for “Ronn’s Garage” on Lorenzo Lamas done so that he can officially launch “Ronn’s Garage” which I’m sure you guys will love. So we take off tomorrow for Tahiti and will take lots of pics and video to blog when we return.

Jim's Plane
Wally and Lori

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

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

Ronn and Devin

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

PLAYER is performing with Bad Company and other groups in Vero Beach, Florida on Saturday September 24th and we are so excited. Our 2nd year wedding anniversary is September 25th so we are staying to celebrate it there. Some of my Louisiana girlfriends will be at the concert so I’m super excited to party with them. If you are around the area and want to see PLAYER this is your chance for a super fun weekend of great music! Ronn is looking forward to meeting many of you there and so am I so I hope if you are around you will come by and see us!
