"I Said "I Do"!!"  October 25, 2010
I admit, my hands have been a bit full lately with wedding plans...  I've been just awful about catching up with all of you! My apologies for being so long-lost!  Today, People.com broke the news of my "tying the knot"... On the 10th of this month, (10-10-10 to be exact) I married the love of my life, Brad. He is truly the most generous, kind, and honest man I have ever known. More importantly, he loves me for all of my idiosyncrasies- and there are many! We are incredibly blessed to have shared our special day with our closest family and friends, back in my hometown in Connecticut. Our day was perfectly intimate, and we had more fun than we could have possibly imagined! Even Bruiser got in on the activities, as he served as our ring-bearer. (Miraculously, he was incredibly well-behaved!)  I realize this is a very brief introduction to an important chapter in my life, but I look forward to sharing more of our excitement with you soon... -Jenna


"My Episode Of "Til Death" Airs On April 25th!"  April 14, 2010

Here’s a preemptive strike for those of you who always write in saying “Why didn’t you tell us you were going to be on an episode of  (insert name of television show or talk show here) !”  I know I'm terrible about keeping you in the loop, so...  A few months ago, I did an episode of the FOX show Til Death. The show stars Brad Garrett & Joely Fisher, and let’s just say that this particular episode boasts a fun little Blossom reunion!!   If you feel like watching, it’s slated to air on  Sunday, April 25th.  You will have to check your local listings for a time...  -Jenna



"My EP is Finally On iTunes!!"  October 15, 2009
If you've been waiting to digitally download my new EP "Coffee & Men (An EP For Childish Adults)", it is finally available on iTunes! It took a little longer than scheduled, but as the old cliche goes, " better late than never"... I also received a wonderful editorial review on Amazon, so check it out when you have the chance! Thanks for all of your continued support... -Jenna


"My New EP Is Going To Be Released On August 4th!!!!!"  July 28, 2009
I am finally releasing the EP I have been talking about for the last several months!! On August 4th, it will be available on my site store, here at www.jennavonoy.com!!  It is entitled"Coffee & Men (An EP For Childish Adults)", and it definitely brings out my sillier side. I like to say "It's Feist meets a really warped Norah Jones, with a little Betty Boop thrown in"... how's THAT for a description? I would hate to disappoint the country fans, but this album is a far cry from country. I wrote and recorded it specifically for TV & film placement, so it's a bit quirky and left of center. I hope you will appreciate it just the same...it is definitely a side of me you haven't seen before!  Please visit my site store on August 4th, to purchase it! Don't forget you can listen to an exclusive sneak peak, if you are a Fan Club member!!



"A Caffeine-Induced Update..."  July 06, 2009

I hope you all had a safe and fun 4th of July weekend!  Thanks to the overdose of caffeine I had this morning, this month’s updates are going to happen at warp speed...

 1. You’ve waited so patiently for my upcoming EP, “Coffee & Men (An EP For Childish Adults)”, that I wanted to find a way to show my appreciation...  I’m giving you a chance for a sneak preview (or rather, a sneak listen...)! I’ve posted three of the songs from the album on my Fan Club “Home” page. Being a fan club member is the only way to access the songs, so If you haven’t already joined my fan club, you can buy a membership on my site store. Being a fan club member gives you access to all sorts of fun anecdotes, news, photos, and sneak previews... including, of course, those three songs from my EP!

 2. A few months ago, I filmed segments for a new show called “The Great Debate” on VH-1. Those episodes begin airing this evening, July 6.   Lord only knows what crazy comments I made (you all know how caustic I can get...), so watch it at your own risk!

3. Check back soon for a new & improved version of this website, complete with brand new, unpublished photos!!!!! 

On that note, I think I'll go get another cup of coffee... 

 

 



"My "Springing Into Summer Sale, Peculiar Pug Prose, & Other Absurd Alliterations..."  June 02, 2009

I’ll bet you thought it was going to be another three months before I posted more news, right? Well, hold onto your hats...here I am with a new one! I like to keep you all guessing. Here's what's new...

The “Springing Into Summer Sale”...

Brad (my fabulous Fan Liaison) & I recently put our heads together, and decided to come up with some fun new sales for my e-store... From now through August, if you buy a T-shirt or tank top, you will automatically receive a free, autographed photo! The photo I chose isn’t available for sale anywhere else, so the only way to get it is... yep, you guessed it... to become a Fan Club member! Subtlety has never been my strong suit :)

The Peculiar Pug Prose...

Bruiser finally updated “The Tails of Bruiser... And Bailey Too!”  I swear, he’s as terrible about writing new updates as his Momma. (Wink, wink...) For the latest & greatest “Pupdate”, click through on the pawprint on my home page. If you have never visited “The Tails of Bruiser”, I encourage you to scroll down and start at “Tail 1”... I hope you are as amused by them as I am!

The Endless EP Excuse...

I’m still working on the artwork for my EP, so please don’t give up on me! I know, I know, I’m moving at snail's pace over here, but I want everything to look just right... I am, however, planning to post a few audio clips of the new EP on my FAN CLUB SITE ONLY! Translation: if you do not already have a Fan Club Membership, you will need to order one from my e-store! Those clips should be up in the next week or two, so get that membership, and you can listen to them before everyone else!!

 I hope you all have a safe & fun-filled summer!  -Jenna

PS. Forgive all of my absurd alliterations... I do love them! 

 

 

 



"Thank you!"  May 28, 2009

   A belated "Thank you" to all of you who sent birthday wishes my way this month! It always amazes me how many of you remember... you really know how to make a girl feel special! I appreciate you all, and it means more than you know... 

More news coming soon!  



"A Little Spring Update..."  April 13, 2009
Hey,  everyone...   I just wanted to give you a quick update on what I've been up to for the last few months. I spent the end of 2008 recording an EP (which, according to my friend, Cindy, cannot be considered an EP if there are ten songs... oops!). It is tentatively titled "Coffee & men: An EP For Childish Adults". Please don't be disappointed, country music fans... it is NOT country music!!  My intention was to do an album strictly for television & film use, so I went a bit left of center & quirky on this one! I like to say "It's Feist meets a really warped Norah Jones, with a bit of Betty Boop thrown in".  Though it isn't a sequel to my first album, I wanted it to be available to all of you anyway, so I'm working on that... please check back for the release date! 

          I also just got back from Los Angeles, where I spent a month working on various projects (including a fun show for VH-1, called The Great Debate, on which I am my silly, caustic self!).  I had some incredible experiences while I was out there, not the least of which is, I got to meet President Obama! It was quite a thrill for me, as I’m sure you can imagine. In fact, I received my official White House photo yesterday in the mail… in it, President Obama is laughing, and as usual, I have a goofy expression on my face. Lord only knows what I was saying to the man! I know you are all thinking “why is she telling us about this if she isn’t going to post the ridiculous photo? Shouldn’t we ALL be able to make fun of Jenna?” Well, the answer to that is: sometimes bad photo moments are meant to be kept to ourselves. I promise I‘ll be self-deprecating enough for all of us!

 

         I know you guys ask about the pups often… they are doing great! They (especially Bailey) have been a little worried over the tornado-inducing thunderstorms we’ve had lately in Nashville, but they are happy to have their Mommy back home from the West Coast. Mia (“The Moo”) turns two years old next week, can you believe it? I would say it feels like just yesterday that I got her, but I’ve been through the ringer with that one, so two years seems about right! Fortunately, there haven’t been any recent vet trips, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she’s growing up a little...

 

         I hope you are all doing well… Please don’t forget that I posted some really fun merchandise on my site store, so visit if you have the chance!  Stay tuned for more info on the EP… -Jenna



"Five Reasons Why You Should Buy "Blossom" On DVD..."  January 27, 2009

Everyone loves a shameless plug, so here's mine... "Blossom" is being released on DVD tomorrow ( January 28, 2009), by Shout Factory!!  It certainly wouldn't hurt my feelings if you all went out and bought a copy, so I'll give you some incentive, by providing a handful of reasons to do so...

1.  You can spend hours indulging your inner child. It will be like jumping into a time machine, and rediscovering the 90's... scary though that may be.

2.  You can make of fun of all of my crazy, ridiculous dance moves. Turns out, there was actually a time when I thought doing the "Roger Rabbit" could be taken seriously.

3.  You can be reminded, as I was, why you will never again sport a flowered hat or bright purple cowboy boots.

4. You can reminisce about Joey Lawrence, back when he had Fabio-like status... and hair.

5. You can support little ol' me! 

 



"Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, & All That Goodness!"  December 17, 2008

   First and foremost, I wish all of you a safe, happy, and blessed holiday season. I hope you are spending it as I am... surrounded by the ones you love, laughing endlessly, and stuffing yourselves with good food.  I am looking forward to a fun 2009, and here are a few things I hope you will look forward to along with me...

   1.  For all of you long-time "Blossom" watchers, the DVD of seasons 1 & 2 is finally being released on January 27th! Currently, I only have a few episodes in my possession, so I am waiting for this release with bated breath. I must admit to some minor amounts of fear and dread as well... there's something about having all of your goofy, awkward years on tape that is a little terrifying. That being said, I was thrilled to be a part of the bonus features, and I even got a little cast reunion out of it! 

   2.  I've been a busy little bee in the recording studio, and I will be releasing an 8 song EP (I don't have an exact release date yet) in the near future. It is tentatively titled   "Coffee & Men (An EP For Childish Adults)" , and it is VERY kitschy and left of center.  I wouldn't want to mislead anyone- for those of you who bought my first album, this is NOT intended to be a sequel... in fact, it isn't country at all.  I wrote all of these songs for the purpose of pitching them for television and film use, so I sort of play a character in all of them. They are, however, quite fun and silly, so I am working on making the album available to you as well... stay tuned!

      3.  I recently did an interview for People magazine's music section, so keep your eyes open for it! 

As the news keeps coming in, I will keep trying to give you as much information as possible... Thanks for your continued support, and warm wishes for the holidays!!!!  -Jenna 



"Ok, folks, it's high time for a serious update on my part."  September 12, 2008
Ok, folks, it's high time for a serious update on my part.  I truly WANT to give you an update.  I swear!  However, I have a whole mess of interesting stuff going on that… that’s right, I can’t talk about.  You ever feel like you have secrets that are just itching to get out?  I’ll give you a few hints though, just to spark some interest.  It looks like the end of this year (beginning of 2009) should see the release of some neat projects for me.  I think I can go so far as to say that one is long awaited, and one is music related.  I know, I know, it’s cryptic.  I’ve made some promises to keep a few things under wraps, as difficult as that is for me.  For now, I’ll leave you with:  The pups and I are doing fantastic.  We’ve been quite caught up in watching the Democratic & Republican National Conventions.  I’m pretty sure Bailey and Bruiser disagree on who they would vote for.  Good thing dogs don’t have opposable thumbs, and cannot drive to the polls!  Lord knows I'm strong in my convictions on this one...  Please don’t forget to register to vote, if you haven’t already…  -Jenna


"news 1"  December 01, 2007
Before I go any further, I would like to announce our September contest winner! Congratulations to Ron Vega of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Ron won a signed, hand-written lyric sheet, by pre-ordering my album and fan club membership!


    As you can imagine, life has been pretty hectic since the release of "Breathing Room".I am still reeling! Some phenomenal things have been happening which I am extremely proud of, including the most recent excitement: "Breathing Room" was listed as a staff favorite on iTunes! What a huge accomplishment for an independent artist! I know you are all wondering when and where I will be performing. Brad (Fan Liaison Extraordinaire) and I are working very hard to begin scheduling some tour dates for next year, so please be sure to give us your recommendations for cool, intimate venues in your area. We'll take all the help we can get!


With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy holiday season. I hope you are all blessed to be surrounded by family and friends, and that your New Year is filled with laughter and love.

Best wishes,
Jenna

"news 3"  July 01, 2007

Welcome to the new, drastically altered, and (I hope you'll agree...) improved www.jennavonoy.com! I realize this has been a long time coming, and I appreciate the patience you have shown us while we cleaned house. The new site brings some very exciting news along with it, namely the impending release of my upcoming independent album, "Breathing Room"! Although I do not yet have an exact release date, I hope you'll all bear with me, and keep checking back for more information. Recording an album is a very long and intricate process, and I want to be sure I offer you the best representation of me that I possibly can. I hope you'll all embrace this new endeavor of mine with open arms... I am very excited to finally be pursuing a passion that I have been forced to put on the back burner for many years! For those of you who have been asking about my acting career, I promise I haven't entirely ditched it... I have been very focused on making music my priority, but rest assured I have not given up on it. I will let you know about future projects as soon as I do! In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy discovering my music...


I would like to take this opportunity to extend my deepest gratitude to Stefan Hellwig, who created the original www.jennavonoy.com, and who has poured his heart and soul into it for more than a decade. Due to an increased workload, Stefan has stepped down as site publisher. I hope you can all appreciate the amount of work he has put into this site since it's inception. Stefan, you have been a devoted website publisher, not to mention an incredible friend. You may not be actively participating in this site anymore, but you are still here in spirit! Considering my infamous lack of internet savvy, this site could never have existed without your lead...


Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Infinite thank yous.


I would also like to give a BIG thank you to Jeff Felchner and Brian Brown, who created this beautiful new site for me. They have put countless hours into this project, and have had to put up with my mischievous behavior along the way ;) Lord knows I can be relentless! They made this process fun for me, and for that I am grateful...


We are still working hard to continue building the new site, so please keep checking back for updates. There's more to come. Without any further ado... drum roll please... I present to you the new www.jennavonoy.com!!!

Enjoy!
