Vegas marked the first time the Daytime Emmys was held there and I don’t think it will be the last. The Hilton hotel hosted the event with a bevy of stars and fans. Ronn presented a special part of the CBS presentation of “Feed the Children”, a charity that helps American homeless families and Veterans. We visited the LA mission where Ronn interviewed a family with 5 little girls all living in one room. The father lost his job over a year ago, along with their home and all their belongings.  Their 7 month old baby girl was born in the shelter, it was heartbreaking to see this type of homelessness is a realty in our country and we want to do all we can to help!  The production of the Daytime Emmys was different, moved a lot quicker and was more entertaining. A tribute to Dick Clark brought a tear to everyone’s eyes. I met Dick Clark years ago and he told me he voted for me in the finals on Star Search and PLAYER was on American Bandstand with their hit song, “Baby Come Back” in 1978, so Dick is very special to us. We were doing the twist with Chubby Checker and The Bold and The Beautiful won their second “Best Drama” award! I predicted to Brad Bell who was sitting right next to us that he would win again and to get that speech ready at the beginning of the show. Drew Tyler Bell won along with the B&B writing team, so it was a Bell night and a much deserved one. The after parties were amazing. We toured the remodeled ELVIS suite which was 16,000 sq ft and met Marie Osmond, Susan Lucci and Tony Orlando. Then we headed to the B &B/ Y & R bash at the Wynn hotel’s Tryst club. It was the coolest place and everyone danced their asses off all night long! Needless to say, Ronn and I were completely exhausted and got only a couple hours sleep. We believe the Daytime Emmys should be combined with the Prime time Emmys now. Because of the Internet, the networks need to realize how dumb it is to separate the two and the fans love to see all the stars that have been a part of their lives for decades. It’s time for them to wake up to the 21st century and get with the program here. Perhaps from this year’s broadcast they will finally know how loyal and devoted the daytime fans are and how necessary it is to to combine the two Emmys. Here are some highlights from the show.

  1. Hi Devin, Very nicely put, and so true. I was moved by all the points you mentioned, and Dick Clark and I go back a long way, meaning, I used to run home like the dickens to catch AB after school because not only was it a dance show, it was a romantic drama on a daily basis with who was dating and hugging whom.

    I was thrilled to see you and Ronn, and I’m proud to know you. My offer still stands if you want a copy of the show. My daughter will be glad to dub it for you and mail it first class.

    Best to you always, Lilian

  2. So PROUD of BnB!

    PLEASE say hello to Ronn for me. I’ve worked with him on the show as his Background Artist off and on these past 2 years, and he is ALWAYS sooo respectful and kind to all of us at the bottom of the biz. He actually appreciates us, I can tell. It’s as if he totally understands we are just trying to make it in this business, too, and trying to give our ALL in our performance for the betterment of the show, right along with the Cast and Crew. Like I said, it feels as though he appreciates us…and that makes this guy, me, push forward and reach for more challenges in our Industry. I see total goodness in Ronn Moss. He’s just the best…but I guess you already know that. 🙂

    Thank you for this blog. I just love following you guys.

    Respectfully yours,

    Bryan Keith Ponton
