A Roaring 20s Party

As we dip into the heat of summer parties, Ronn and I are always up for a good time and getting dressed up is super fun! So when our friends Caroline and Mike Cusumano invited us to their family’s annual summer bash, we were ready to go, especially when it was a roaring 1920′s theme. This was one great party! You were welcomed with champagne at the entrance and everyone was dressed to impressed in their flapper and gangster garb. Cigarette girls passed around jumbo shrimp and a variety of appetizers, specialty drinks included, “Old Fashions”, “Lynchberg Lemonade” and “Peach Martinis.” The buffet dinner included a variety of pastas, salads and lamb chops, while we enjoyed flapper girls doing the Charleston with a live band performing. It surely felt like we went back in time and we enjoyed every minute of it!

Tina Hillstrom joined us and as always when Caroline, Tina and I get together we have a blast. I felt like this was the topper to my birthday month and one of the best parties I’ve attended this year so far. To my demise, I woke up with a head cold and have been coughing and sneezing ever since, but hey I have great memories of a wonderful finale to my birthday! Although it sucks to have a summer cold, at least it’s not the flu and I’m hoping to be better by for the fourth of July festivities. We have several parties to attend for the 4th, including Hef’s amazing fireworks at the Playboy mansion.

DSC00022 DSC00061_pp_2 EZ0A1254_pp

However it’s not all fun in the sun for us, we do have some work involved. Ronn and I have several upcoming magazine shoots and I’m doing a calendar shoot for Shelter Hope Pet Shop. Ronn is also doing a music video for “Addiction”  and we are preparing for an exciting upcoming trip to Europe. Will give you more details as they firm up. So summer is flying by for us already, but we are indeed having a good time. We hope you have a wonderful and safe fourth of July and that your summer is as much fun as ours without any of the coughing or sneezing.

Birthday Bliss

I seldom celebrate my birthday on my actual birthday. It seems to always be on the weekend before or after, and given the blow out I had for my big 50th last year; it would have been hard to top that, so I didn’t even want to try. However, some of my longtime girlfriends thought we were in dire need of a potluck. Now most of you know by now what my potluck parties are like, as I’ve posted many pictures from my holiday ones. They consist of all girls who bring over yummy dishes to share, so that we can do what girls like to do and chatter, while we drink and eat to our hearts content!

Poltuck girls

My girlfriend Sue, who loves to cook more than me, brought over her spicy chili with tri-tip and someone else brought mac n’ cheese and suggested I try this combo. I must say chili over mac n’ cheese was an addictive combination. Creason and Calee made “Grape Leaves” and other dishes included, summer salads, bow tie pasta with chicken and my favorite, cupcakes!

We whipped up a pitcher of spicy Bloody Mary and a summer Bourbon Smash with peaches, lemonade, orange juice and mint to give everyone a summer buzz. Ronn was the only man allowed because he takes great photos. Potluck parties are for the girls only, but I make exceptions every once in a while. Barbara Moore wanted to bring her dad, so I thought Ronn could use a little male energy to help him out and allowed him to join us also.

Needless to say, the party lasted all day long and it was  fun to spend some great quality time laughing it up with these great gals! I’m lucky to have so many amazing girlfriends. They are beautiful, talented and smart, but most of all they have the best hearts and are all so loving and giving. I admire and adore them all! So nothing please me more than to spend the day catching up with each of them.

I got amazing gifts too! A gorgeous bath robe from Barbara, a Kate Spade purse and lavender/Rosemary scented dispenser from Caroline, a beautiful orchid from Joanne, flip flops from Kim, a handmade knitted hat and waist purse from Lisa, the perfect summer dress in my favorite colors from Sue, candles, body lotion & a summer beach towel from Blanca, the hottest fashion tote bag from Mona, a gorgeous picture frame from Eden and the funniest cards galore!

I’ve never had such a perfect day spent with such lovely friends, so I’m feeling extremely blissful and happy today basking in the aftermath of it all. The birthday bliss continues with other girlfriends treating me to spa days and the celebrating will also continue this weekend. I think the older we get and the more people we know it surely becomes a birthday month of celebration.

DevRonn

Thank you guys  for all the amazing birthday wishes throughout the day! It was hard to see them all because they kept coming in, so if I missed saying thank you personally, please forgive me. But, know that I deeply appreciated seeing them. Now I have a present for you guys with a special announcement! Ronn and I will make a rare guest appearance on the ABC prime time show, “Celebrity Wife Swap” which will air July 22nd! We swapped with General Hospital‘s Prince Nicolas Cassadine aka Tyler Christopher and I think you guys may just get to see Ronn make his now infamous “Ronnacinno” among other surprises! This will be one funny show that you won’t want to miss out on! I’ve got other surprises to share with you guys, but I think I’ll wait until the next blog, since this one was filled with so much bliss!

Man On Fire

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.

Ronn Moss

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!

Player

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.

Clara & Ronn

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!

PLAYER Honors Smokey Robinson

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since my big 5-0. Last year at this time, as we were planning my event, Kira Lorsch was beginning the brainstorming of the 2014 Thalians event. Kira and I were hanging out have a much needed girls spa when she said, “Devin if you were to pick someone to honor as “Mr. Wonderful”, what icon of music or entertainment industry would you pick, that people of all ages like, now and respect?” I immediately replied, “Smokey Robinson would be great! Everyone loves Smokey.”

Dev & Kira

The seed was planted. And here we are a few weeks away from the big Thalians Smokey Robinson Tribute Concert benefiting UCLA Operation Mend at the House of Blues Sunset Strip on Saturday April 26th.  You won’t want to miss the Smokey Robinson Tribute. I mean there are music legends and then there’s Smokey Robinson! His name is synonymous with Motown. “Shop Around,” “I Second that Emotion,” “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “My Girl,” and “Tracks of My Tears” are just a few of his amazing hits!

Kira LorschPlayer

On Saturday April 26th, Smokey will be honored by the longtime mental health charity, The Thalians who have been around  forever. Debbie Reynolds founded it and this will be a star studded event! A stage full of musical artists will perform Smokey songs for Smokey himself! PLAYER will perform “Tracks of My Tears,” along with other performers that include, Guy Sebastian, Taylor Dane, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Natasha & Cheech Marin, Florence LaRue of The 5th Dimension, Joy Enriquez and Bobby Arvon with musical director Todd Schroeder and the Thalians Orchestra plus some surprise guests! (Sorry but I”m sworn to secrecy.)

Spring Forward

I can’t believe spring is here already, seems this year is flying by so fast! I love spring, seeing all the flowers bloom and preparing for the warmth that summer will bring. It makes me want to entertain and so we are having our first party of spring this Sunday to kick off the new season of “Game of Thrones.” Peter Beckett got us hooked on that series and I promised I’d kick it off with a nice shindig of a party.

So I’m cooking some Cajun grub and having a few friends over who are also die hard “Game of Throne” fanatics to drink some ale and see who gets the ax in the first episode. We are also springing forward with so many new and exciting projects. Seems many countries are missing seeing Ronn on their TV sets since he’s no longer Ridge Forrester and we are formulating new and interesting things on a daily basis with many different countries.

Player

Player is excited to do a tour in Australia this November and 13 shows are now locked down with more being added that could take us into New Zealand for December. There will also be new Player merchandise available especially for this “Too Many Reasons” tour and I couldn’t be more excited, so Player Angels get ready to rock!  I visited Melbourne back in 2005 when Ronn did the berry juice commercial, so this will be a such a treat for me to explore OZ and really spend some quality time there. The new “Man On Fire” music video with previews from the upcoming 411movie will be released soon so you can get more excited about the upcoming tour!

There is also a movie in the works with Italy’s best comedy writers who is tailoring a script especially for Ronn. I can’t tell you details on that yet, but it’s going to be quite comical and I will also be in it. We have a TV show in the works for Finland and South Africa and there is a possibility of a campaign in the Netherlands. However it’s all being formulated so I can’t give you dates of when we will be in those places just yet.

Ronn

Player is also making an appearance on a popular TV show next week and I can’t tell you what show just yet, but I know you will be excited and will give you details as soon as I’m allowed. They are also looking forward to singing, “Tracks of My Tears” to honor the one and only Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues April 26. This will be a killer show that will include, Taylor Dane and Chaka Khan among others that will make this an exciting televised event to benefit the “Thalians.

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

Ronn is joining the cast of the Emmy nominated webseries, “The Bay” next week when they introduce a new character to the drama. We are also putting the finishing touches on our audio book, “My Husband’s A Dog, My Wife’s A Bitch” and I’m so pleased you are laughing and enjoying the printed version and Ebook. We are planning to release a book of Ronn’s photography in the future and I’ve been encouraging him to continue writing his autobiography. Ronn has led an amazing life growing up in Hollywood and has some incredible stories to tell from his life so this is a must. But as you know, he’s rather slow and moves at his own pace, so that won’t be for a while. In the meantime, as we spring forward into these upcoming exciting projects taking us on a new adventure, that maybe we will be visiting you real soon!

Hooray For The Underdog!

I know many of you thought the Broncos would win the Superbowl and many were disappointed. I had no preference and really love superbowl parties to socialize. So I was really happy for the Seahawks because my buddy and Playmate sister Barbara Moore is from Seattle and explained they had never won a superbowl.

DevRonn with Barbara Moore

I’m always one to root for the underdog and so my congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks for taking home the trophy. Speaking of trophies. My other beautiful girlfriend Sandra Taylor was the official trophy girl that evening and so a congrats to her for having that honor.

Sandra Taylor

We spent Superbowl at the Playboy mansion because it’s always fun. Hef had all my favorite foods, sliders, hot wings, chili and even gumbo! Everyone can participate in the superbowl pool to win the big pot of money and there are always so many friends and Playmates to catch up with. I was happy to see my old friend Steve Bing there along with Nels and Jimmy Van Patten. We named them the mansion puppies because they were so young when they started going up there over 30 years ago and were some of the first guys I met up there when I became a Playmate. Turns out Steve has a new restaurant called, “Crossroads” that’s Vegan and his chef Tal wants me to be a guest chef at the restaurant for a Cajun night, which I’m looking forward to!

Hef & Steve Bing

So now that superbowl is over, it’s time to concentrate on more important things, like love. Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I’ve got romance on my brain, especially since I’ve been incapacitated for months now! We have the Mending Kid’s charity at the House of Blues hosted by my pal Tina Hillstrom and KISS to attend on Valentine’s Day and the release of our new relationship book that I know you guys will love! In the meantime, let’s hear it for those Seahawks!!

Holiday Parties

This past weekend I felt blessed to have the energy to attend a few holiday parties. Since it’s been almost 3 weeks since my surgery and I’m experiencing no pain, my only issue has been lack of energy. So pacing myself has been the key to my success in this department. I didn’t even think I would be recovering so nicely and my sleep pattern is the only thing that needed to get back on track. Since I sometimes feel tired in the middle of the afternoon and would nap, it would be hard to sleep through the night without waking up at 3am. 

Candi and me copy

We managed to celebrate a lovely Christmas with a nice big tree and all the yummy food that goes with the holiday season. Creason and Calee had fun opening a few presents I managed to get on my one day shopping spree and it was great to catch up with some wonderful friends we hadn’t seen in a while.

I met a lot of old friends that grew up with Ronn, which is so cool that he has that connection with people he knew since he was in diapers. And we managed to go to the Playboy mansion for a movie night to see “Anchorman 2″ which happens to be one of Ronn’s favorite comedies. I think I’ve seen Anchorman with Ronn and the kids at least 20 times!

So now I’m resting and saving up my energy for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in which we have parties to attend on both of those days and I’m hoping to be back to my old self by next week and maybe even back at the gym!  We also have the Yacht Rock Reveue boys coming over to visit and do a Ronn’s Garage. Player will also join them on stage at the House of Blues this January 4th as we celebrate Peter Beckett’s girlfriend Eden Ayer’s birthday.

I’m super excited about 2014 and can feel it in my bones that it will be a huge year for us all. Player has a tour in the works with Little River Band and Ambrosia that they are trying to get scheduled for the US. And Player is honoring Smokey Robinson for the “Thalians” charity gala at the House of Blues here in LA on April 26, which will also be televised. We are heading to the Bahamas on a cruise with the Yacht Rock Revue and Player on Feb 26th, so that should be super fun! And Ronn will help honor Michael Douglas for Unicef on Jan 14th.

Devronn copy

So I think we will start 2014 off with a rockin good time and some damn good music and of course I’ll keep you all posted on all the Player dates coming up. I have lots more to tell you on many other surprises, but that will be another blog. So for now just know that we wish you all the best of 2014 and we are all very excited about the coming new year!

The Thalians

Last night Ronn and I attended the annual Thalians Christmas party held at the Bel Air Country club.  It was our second appearance and a special evening for “Player” who performed a few songs to kick off what is coming in 2014.  Hosted by Ruta Lee and Kira Lorsch, the Thalians has been honoring all of Hollywood for 60 years now. They raised over 1 million dollars for their event at the Playboy mansion that honored Hugh Hefner and will now honor the one and only Smokey Robinson at the “House of Blues” on April 26th. Player is proud to be a part of the headlining acts that will pay tribute to Smokey’s legendary songs.

The Thalians has been giving proceeds to help the mental health of our troops and is committed to this cause that enables our troops to heal in both mind and body. They have honored stars like Clint Eastwood, Sammy Davis Jr and Lana Turner in the past 60 years and are now looking to honor young Hollywood in the future. This prestigious and generous charity is what makes Hollywood the unique and powerful club that they are and we are proud to be a part of them.

I was happy to see my dear friend, Mary Ann Mobley there last night, along with Cheech Marin and Kerry Gordy who will also be celebrating with us on April 26, 2014 as Player headlines in honor of Smokey Robinson at the House of Blues. I can’t wait for that evening will be one night to remember and it just may be televised!

Heroes Awards

We had an absolute blast at the first annual Heroes Awards Dinner held at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City. Our amazing and generous friends, The Cusumano Family were honored for their contributions to our wounded vets. Actor/musician Gary Senise from CSI/NY rocked the house with his awesome band and my always life of the party friend, Tina Hillstrom joined us and danced the night away, looking fabulous in her very own, Wannawear line. 

Caroline & Mike CusumanoDevRonn

Ronn as most of you know, always looks amazing in a tux and I had an excuse to wear an evening gown. Since we recently celebrated Veterans Day, I thought it was fitting to have such a terrific charity event at this time of the year. It reminds us all of how much our troops have sacrificed for our country. We met Nathan who lost both is legs, but still has a wonderful fighting spirit for life. He is a real life, Lt. Dan and it’s a privilege to have met him. 

Tina, Caroline & DevinAmy Dugan & Tanner Cusumano

This was the first Heroes awards dinner, but I”m certain not the last and since alot of our troops are starting to come home, it’s important to help integrate them into society and make them feel at home. The Goodwill gala was truly a first class event that I hope with bring joy to our Thankful hearts each and every year by helping our troops. Please visit http://www.goodwillsocal.org/2013-goodwill-gala-for-heroes for more info on how you can help be a part of this worthy cause.

Ronn & Mike.Gorgeous gowns

This week Ronn and I are preparing for our first ever autograph show together at the http://www.supermegafest.com/. I did this show many years ago and look forward to seeing alot of our east coast fans. They have a great after party of musical performances and are doing a tribute to the Beatles music, so this should be one fun show! Who knows maybe Ronn will join in?  After Boston we will journey back to our second home, Italy where Ronn is doing another campaign with Katherine Kelly Lang. So we won’t be home for Thanksgiving this year, but our hearts are indeed very Thankful for all our blessings. It was also great to do our DevRonn Chat on Livestream with you all before we left for this event. We hope to do these kinds of chats more often!
