Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed Finally Tie the Knot on 'Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'After many long years, Gene Simmons is finally growing up and ready to settle down with the woman he's known it was going to be the whole time. And finally, the wedding day was here on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 9PM ET on A&E).

Shannon Tweed was a gorgeous bride on this day she'd waited so long for. We were a little surprised she left that bit in the vows where she made a commitment to serve him all the days of their lives.

At least Gene understands what it really means, though, because she closed the vows talking about her father's ring which she melted and reshaped into a ring for Gene.

Hugh Hefner and the PTC Speak Out on 'The Playboy Club' Cancellation

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 5th 2011 6:00AM
'The Playboy Club' castAs was widely expected, NBC's new drama, 'The Playboy Club,' has gained the dubious distinction of being the first cancellation of the new fall season.

It will reportedly be replaced with repeats of 'Prime Suspect' until Brian Williams' news magazine series 'Rock Center' starts on Mon., Oct. 31 at 10PM.

Now 'Playboy' founder Hugh Hefner says he thinks he knows why 'The Playboy Club' struggled in the ratings and failed to ignite with audiences.

Six Reality TV Stars Who've Gone the Distance

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 28th 2010 12:01AM
Cloris Leachman Think about reality TV, and what usually springs to mind is a bunch of youngsters living in homes together, performing on talent shows, or trying to get their careers rolling -- sometimes all at the same time.

But let's not forget the elder statespeople who already had a stunning career behind them, only to come back into the public eye by participating in a reality show. Perhaps these celebrity veterans helped to pave the way for 'Sunset Daze,' a new show premiering April 28 at 10PM ET on WE tv that follows a group of people at a retirement community in Arizona's Sun City.

Lest you think it's all pudding and painkillers, rest assured there will be sex! Guns! Skydiving! And motorcycles!

Another Girl Next Door gets a spin-off

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 15th 2010 4:30PM
The Girls Next DoorHolly Madison, one of the Playboy playmates from the series The Girls Next Door, will be getting her own reality series on E! called Holly's World. The show will follow her around as she does her daily routine and works in Las Vegas in her topless revue titled Peepshow. She plays Little Bo Peep. Get it? It's one of those double entendre things.

Since other playmates from the show have gotten their own successful spin-offs (Kendra), it makes sense that other such programs would, ahem, "arise" given the relatively low cost to produce and the extreme willingness of the women to expose themselves both literally and figuratively. It makes me wonder why such a concept hasn't made it to HBO or Showtime where certain body parts are less likely to be blurred.

Perhaps NBC could have solved it's problems by giving Holly or one of the other girls the 11:35 timeslot on NBC and get rid of Jay as well as Conan? Okay, maybe that's not such a good idea.

Hugh Hefner is like the kindly grandfather girls have sex with

Hugh Hefner and his Girls Next Door
Apparently, I've gone over to the dark side and have somehow morphed into a person who watches the E! network. I've commented on the Kardashians, Leave it to Lamas, and Chelsea Lately (which I love by the way). I've finally moved to the bottom of the barrel -- The Girls Next Door.

Here's the thing about this show. Who really knows what goes on when the cameras are turned off (or possibly, we don't want to know), but it seems like Hugh Hefner is a really nice guy. All of his girlfriends and ex-girlfriends have only good things to say about him, and they rave about how cool it is to live at the Playboy mansion.

And if you can get past the part where he has several girlfriends at the same time, and is, like, 103 years old creepily having sex with 19-year-old girls (if he can still have sex, that is), he just seems like a nice guy. The kindly grandfather girls have sex with. Oh, and he loves to scrapbook.

Kendra's the biggest thing since Anna Nicole for E!

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 10th 2009 7:28AM
Kendra Wilkinson and Hank BaskettEverybody knows Kendra as one of Hugh Hefner's former girlfriends. The one-time stars of E!'s The Girls Next Door have left the mansion and moved on to their own projects. Bridget Marquardt has moved on to her own Travel Channel show, Bridget's Sexiest Beaches, while Holly Madison was just on Dancing with the Stars. It looks like E! went the right route by choosing to follow the youngest and wackiest of the bunch, Kendra Wilkinson.

Her self-titled new show premiered Sunday on E!, and Kendra set a ratings high not seen since the premiere of The Anna Nicole Show in 2002 with 2.6 million viewers. People love their former Playmates, apparently. As an admitted follower of The Girls Next Door; my wife has a thing for all things Playboy and I got sucked in despite myself; Kendra was always the girl that I found the most annoying. She was so childish and superficial... and that laugh! Oh my god, that laugh made me want to reach through the screen and strangle her! So no one was more surprised than me to find that I actually enjoyed this premiere.

The Girls Next Door continues without the girls, but they're not gone either

by Jason Hughes, posted May 21st 2009 9:10AM
Kendra WilkinsonBridget Marquardt is already traveling the world showing us Bridget's Sexiest Beaches on the Travel Channel. Now it's Kendra Wilkinson's turn. Easily the most annoying of The Girls Next Door, Kendra's new E! show will premiere this fall. Now that all the girls have left the mansion, it's time to see what's next for them. And for Kendra, who was only 18 when the show premiered, it's about time she learned how to be an adult who isn't pampered by the staff at the Playboy Mansion.

And that's just what her show, cleverly called Kendra, will do as she prepares for her wedding next month. My wife is a fanatic for The Girls Next Door, so I've seen more than my fair share of them, and the show is actually much sweeter than you'd expect. One of my questions was what they would do with it now that the girls have left the nest. Apparently, the show will continue and presumably feature Hef's new girlfriends, the twins (not those twins, though I'm sure they're featured as well; they really are twins!).

Will The Girls Next Door end with a wedding?

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 28th 2008 1:01PM
girls next doorI've been watching The Girls Next Door for a while and it presents such a quandary for me. I feel like I'm betraying the feminist movement every time I tune in. If I knew an old man who had relationships with multiple young girls and made them "kept women," I would think he's a sleaze ball and wouldn't want to have anything to do with him. However, I fully admit that I find The Girls Next Door fascinating.

It's probably because the life that's portrayed is so far beyond my frame of reference that I can hardly believe that it's real. In any case, I've been a semi-regular viewer and I've found myself even rooting for the girls. I want Bridget to finish school, and yes, I've even been rooting for Holly to get Hef to marry her. Well, I believe Bridget has gotten her Master's degree, and it seems like Holly may even get her wish too. Bridget was recently overheard dishing about a "huge wedding" coming up on the show.

Hef requests a favor from Miley

by Brad Trechak, posted May 9th 2008 9:01PM

Hugh HefnerHugh Hefner, founder of Playboy Enterprises, has given his consent for Miley Cyrus to pose for the magazine that is the cornerstone of his empire. This is only once she's of legal age of course.

Miley Cyrus is the 15 year old daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and star of the Disney Channel show Hannah Montana. She is already well on her way to becoming a billionaire and I don't think she needs the publicity.
