Hey Cutters...
First, I want to extend my sincere condolences to the family of Eddie Guerrero. Eddie was unquestionably an underdog at every level and an incredible over achiever. Eddie showed that anything is possible. He achieved every dream he ever sought after overcoming all obstacles. He was one of my favorite people in and out of the ring. As a matter of fact, it was Eddie Guerrero who helped escalate my career. It was my feud with Eddie that put me in front of the wrestling audience as a serious competitor. But more importantly he helped me make a believer of the boys in the back... Thank you Eddie for that I will never forget you. Eddie was such an unbelievable talent that you automatically elevated your game every time you stepped into the ring with him. Not only was hea good guy out of the ring, but he was a straight shooter in the ring. You could trust him, which in our business says everything. You will be sorely missed, my friend. God bless you and your family.
The media tour for my new book starts this week. I will be guest hosting my buddy Mancow's radio show Wednesday morning, the day before Thanksgiving. Mancow's Morning Madhouse is a great syndicated radio show out of Chicago that I love. Check out their official website at Mancow.com.
I know you haven't heard much from me lately because I have been crazy busy ... Even for me. I've just finished filming Danny Trejo's movie “Jack's Law”which will hopefully make the Sundance Film festival. From “Jack’s Law”I went right to Tim Sullivan's “Driftwood”. Think of “Driftwood”as an attitude adjustment camp for troubled kids where parents pay $50,000 for a real man to get their kids on the right track..I am that real man, Captain Doug Kennedy... On the outside anyway... Once you get inside of “Driftwood”it gets a little twisted. This is a supernatural thriller also starring Ricky Ullman (as David) from Disney's hit show, “Phil of the Future”, and reality show star Talan Torriero (as Yates) known for his appearances on “MTV's Laguna Beach”and is a member of Paris's Pack... Paris  Hilton that is... As a matter of fact, he's all over the papers right now since he just got engaged to Rod Stewart's daughter... Oh THAT TALAN...congrats to you and Kimberly Stewart both bro.  My second accomplice in this film is David Eigenberg (Norris) who played Steve in Sex In the City. David's parents are played by the legendary Lin Shaye and Mark McClure. You'll remember Mark as Jimmy Olsen from the Superman movies with Christopher Reeves. We shot this movie in 15 days...it was fast, furious, and brutal... It kicked my ass... but the dailies look great so hopefully you'll get to see it in theaters in the next year or so.

I don't want to forget the lovely Baelyn, who plays my daughter in “Driftwood”. She was wearing her grandmother's antique diamond ring with beautiful diamonds all around the band and a flawless one and a half carat diamond right in the center. Unfortunately, she lost the center stone during shooting. As we were getting ready to film our scene, I could tell her attitude wasn't where it needed to be. After a little bit of "Positively Page" she was ready to work. About 2 hours into our scene, I turned and sat in another chair. I saw a flicker in the four inch tall grass. I thought, nah...couldn't be. I reached down anyway and pulled out... You get it... Her grandmas diamond. Talk about finding a needle in a haystack. I picked it up in shock and cavalierly walked over and asked her, "Is this what you were missing?" She was a beacon the rest of the day. Check this picture out of me and Baelyn with the Diamond in the Diamond Cutter... Bang!
Speaking of movies, the Devil's Rejects DVD is out on sale. Feel free to get one signed at any of my book signings, so long as you have a YRG “Yoga for Regular Guys”book for me to sign in your other hand.

As for YRG (Yoga for Regular Guys), the book officially drops on December 4th and I will be doing a ton of media to support the book in the New York area. The www.DiamondDallasPage.com website is the best place to keep track of where I'll be or where I am headed to. My official spokesperson, Larry "Smokey" Genta has lost 53 pounds to date. Smokey is to YRG what Jared was to Subway... But our boy Smokey did the right way... He's in the best shape of his life thanks to YRG. YRG, CRG (Cooking for Regular Guys... I book we are both writing as we speak... It would be cooking meets “The Man Show”), and Living Life at 90% has changed his life. You will definitely want to go read his latest updated. Smokey is not just a spokesperson, he's also one of the greatest promoters that I know and has put together an unbelievable book signing in Ft. Myers, Florida. It’s funny because my publisher's Quirk publicity person has told me it would be impossible to go into Ft. Myers at this time of the year. Smokey went there and got me booked at Books-A-Million in Ft. Myers along with a ridiculous, rigorous promotion schedule that will run from 6 AM to midnight. The signing itself is from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on November 28th. The book is in stores right now, but the national promotion kicks in on December 4th. I'll also be in Sacramento, CA at the Border's on Douglas Blvd. at 3:00 PM on December 3rd. I want to personally thank my bro Barry Levine. If he hadn't hooked me up with Laurie, none of this would have happened. Not this book or me being in “Driftwood”. Barry has been my manager for some time now and he put me in front of Laurie Dolphin the woman who laid out the YRG concept in book form and Barry put in front of the director of “Driftwood”Tim Sullivan... In both situations he said to me bro I will get you in the door after that it is up to you... Thanks bro.

Even though I've been insanely busy, I found time to hook up with some of my best bros. Los Lonely Boys and Superman's dad himself John Schneider at a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Of course, I had to head out for Halloween with Ang and a buddy of ours named Jana. I went as Toby Keith. The week before Jana got us invited to Heff’s ... Yeah the Playboy Mansion... Here a picture of one of the painted ladies... Yes she is only wearing PAINT... What a life...

Also, on December 4th, my bro RichInKC, the webmaster, and I are dropping a whole new Diamond Dallas Page website. If the current site is a Cadillac. The new site, will be a Mercedes 600. Rich has found a new way to make the photos and the videos so much cooler and easier to use. We've basically outgrown the current design and Rich and I have been working for months to come up with a new design that you will love.
Until next time... it's been your pleasure ... As well as mine...
