Man On Fire is the new single from Player’s “Too Many Reasons” CD and they have just released a new video, which includes scenes from the upcoming 411 movie. Now 411 won’t be completed until next year because Ronn has so many projects in various countries and an upcoming Australian tour for Player. I guess you can say he is truly a “Man on Fire” these days.
Player just honored music legend Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues Saturday night and helped raised one million dollars for the mental health of our troops. They were joined by Aussie Guy Sebastian, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr and Taylor Dayne singing Smokey’s most famous songs. Player sang “Tracks of My Tears” and it’s so good that they are now recording it!
This week Ronn will debut as former District Attorney, John Blackwell on the acclaimed series, The Bay as they launch their new season. The Bay Series has been a hit on the Internet and now will have longer episodes and soon will be going to television. John Blackwell may become an ongoing character and the new episode will air May 1st.
We had a lovely Easter celebration at the Playboy mansion with pop artist Michael Moebius and Swedish artist Clara Hallencreutz who is just as gorgeous as she is talented. It was a lovely day filled with sunshine and an exotic petting zoo of animals that included lots of bunnies, miniature ponies and owls. We have just completed our audio version of our humorous relationship book, “My Husband’s A Dog, My Wife’s A Bitch” and it will be up on Amazon in the next few days.
In the meantime, enjoy the new video of Man On Fire and know that I will keep you posted on Player’s upcoming tour dates, as well as, details of our new adventures around the world!
I had a slumber party with several other Playmates from the 1980s celebrating the 50th birthday of Playmate Alana Soares thrown by her sister Leilani Soares. We had such a great time laughing and telling past stories with Playmates, Ava Fabian, Cathy St. George, Kimberly Paige, Roberta Vasquez, Lynn Austin and Debi Johnson. Some of these girls I hadn’t seen in decades and few of them flew in from other states just to surprise Alana.
There is a sorority like sister bond that goes with girls who have posed for Playboy, at least from our era and it felt like we had gone back in time except for talking about men and parties, we now talk about kids and health. We giggled so much that I had to take a nap before heading to the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge to meet famed photographer Terry O’Neill and artist Michael Moebius for dinner.
Terry O’Neill was the first photographer to photograph Sir Elton John, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, so Ronn was very excited to meet him and we are attending an exhibition of his work this week at the Mouche Gallery in Beverly Hills. Terry was also married to actress Faye Dunaway and now lives in London, so the history alone is exciting to Ronn because as you know he loves photography, music and Ronn’s father was from England.
We are catching up on so many projects before we leave for the Player and Yacht Rock Revue rock cruise to the Bahamas this week. And I will not be taking my computer or be online so you guys will just have to miss us for a few days. When we return I am finalizing a documentary I am producing on the pinup from a pinup’s point of view and Player will perform at a wonderful charity called “Songs Of Love.”
Songs of Love is special because musicians write individual songs for children with terminally ill diseases. Watch the 60 minutes video above for more information or click on the invite if you’d like to attend or donate to this wonderful cause. Check out the newly redesigned makeover of my personal website where you can find this blog and everything else on me all in one place. Special thanks to our web designer Gea who is now working on a redesign of Ronn’s site as well.
“Being Normal Is Boring” is a phrase that has been attached to German Artist, Michael Moebius’ painting of Marilyn Monroe blowing a pink bubble gum. This image is on everything from T-shirts, to iphone cases and has garnered alot of attention for Moebius. So much so, that “Glamour” magazine has featured it in it’s Hollywood issue with Jennifer Aniston on the cover.
I’ve known Michael now for nearly 13 years and was his first model. It was easy to recognize his immense talent and wonderful to see how much he’s grown. It’s safe to say, “Being Normal Is Boring” indeed and Michael is far from normal and certainly not boring. He’s been like a brother to me and it’s been nice to spend some quality time together since Ronn is away on tour.
We went to see Helmut Newton’s photography exhibition and it has inspired Michael to do a series of Marilyn paintings in black and white, as well as, a new Audrey Hepburn Tiffany bubble gum painting that I absolutely love. Playboy is now featuring a five page article on his work and magazines such as, “Robb Report” and Cosmopolitan are also featuring his work. He’s now planning an art exhibition of his own this fall in Beverly Hills.
As you know Ronn featured him on “Ronn’s Garage” earlier this year and I’m sure you can now see that Michael Moebius is a shooting star in his own right. I’m very proud of him and love that “Being Normal Is Boring” and hope that you guys will continue to follow his career.
Ronn and I had a fun time with our German artist friend Michael Moebius at the Breguet Watch party in Beverly Hills last night. We then had dinner at “Housewives of Beverly Hills” Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant, “Villa Blanca.”
Whenever Michael comes to visit, we have 3D photos to look forward to and as you guys know, Ronn is a camera buff. So he and Michael always have a fun time.
Seeing Hef and old friends like musician, Ray Anthony is always special. Speaking of pictures, Ronn and I are gearing up to take lots of photos of each other soon.
Since I don’t model anymore, we must find the time and energy to do it. I’m really excited about this new year as it is off to a great start.
Ronn is working on an exciting new project that will be music related and I’ll let him tell you all about that later when it launches.
I am super busy already with real estate clients and trying to find the time to finish writing my next book, cookbook and working on a screenplay. As always, I will keep you informed on what’s happening here first.
