Renee 2008 Xena Convention DVD
The following was sent by Creation Entertainment


Here offered for the very first time, is the DVD of The Official Xena Convention appearances of Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor on stage, alone and together at the 2008 event in Burbank, California.

Lucy regales the audience with tales, such as, the Meeting of the Prius and the Deer; she's hit with This Is Your Life as early photos of her youth and a man whose children she used to babysit for show up; and is surprised to find that Xena wrote a book called The Threefold Path to Peace in 1904.

Renee tells stories about, for example, how she came to sing with Lucy at the Roxy as opposed to doing a pole dance; Lucy singing songs to a dancing Iris; that Ghost Town will be released by Lion's Gate; writing stories about her childhood including the saga of the twin turbo red Porsche; returning to martial arts; Cat On a Hot Tin Roof; and does she fall in love easily the way Gabrielle does?

Together, Lucy and Renee ponder such must know topics as does Renee prefer Lucy as a brunette or a blonde? Would they read some fan fiction together? What did Renee learn about her sexuality by hanging around Lucy? And, what's it like to kiss Renee?

And, a surprise or two!

DVD will be released and shipped in August of 2008 and is 1 hour and 15 minutes. DVD will play internationally.

Special Photo Book with Renee!

Lida has created a special photo book that I wanted to share with you all the great news:

 In 2005, Renee O'Connor, Gabrielle from Xena Warrior Princess graciously agreed to attend the fan run Orlando BardCon in honour of writers who have produced quality Xena Warrior Princess fan fiction.

These images were taken at the event and with Renee's permission and the urging of others to share these images, I'm now very pleased to announce the creation of a photo book to commemorate this event. It's an 8 x 10 photo book with 66 pages with over 360 images.

All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to charity which will be divided between Hospice and a charity of Renee's choice.

You all invited to this book release to remember a great event and donate to a worthy cause.

New Renee Painting on Ebay

Renee has posted a new painting "Santorini" on her Ebay page.

This is a view I had while visiting Santorini, Greece. I was on a pathway looking down at a rooftop of a house. The tones of blue and white were so beautiful to me. I thought I would try to challenge myself, and paint something with just a few colors! The dimensions are 12 inches X 12 inches, and it is signed. I will personalize the note of authenticity. Thank you!

Renee is #21 on 2008 AfterEllen Hot 100 List!
Renee has been added to the 2008 AfterEllen Hot 100 List...
Gorgeous pic of Renee!


(No. 63 in 2007)

Six years after Xena: Warrior Princess went off the air, Renée O’Connor is still on our minds. Active in charity work, Renee heads up the Renée O'Connor Outreach Fund, which helps give money and support to families overwhelmed by bills from a serious illness. She’s a fixture at Xena fan conventions, and just when we thought she couldn't get any hotter, she'll be playing a lesbian in a multi-episode arc on Lifetime's hit show Army Wives when it returns later this month. The summer just got even hotter!
