'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.

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'Gene Simmons' engagement to Shannon Tweed brought an old friend back into their lives on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 9PM ET on A&E). Tony wanted to emphasize to Gene that not only was he doing the right thing, but that he has to cherish every moment he has with the woman he loved.

Both Shannon and Tony's wife Donna had breast cancer scares, but while Shannon came out with a clean bill of health, Donna lost her battle.

"Without the one you love, you have nothing, man, and I don't want you to be lost," Tony told Gene. "All your success, it doesn't mean anything."

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' wedding proposalWell the media kind of spoiled the answer on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E), but for those who didn't keep up with the celebrity news, or just wanted to see it go down themselves, we finally got to see Shannon Tweed's response to Gene Simmons' marriage proposal.

We have to say it is possibly one of the greatest responses we have ever heard to this question. Tweed said through tears and thick emotion, "Who'd want to marry an a****** like you? You're so stupid."

Was the Gene Simmons-Shannon Tweed Wedding a Ploy for TV Ratings? (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 3rd 2011 3:00PM
Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed got married this weekend after living together for 20 years. The wedding ended a year's worth of public bickering that played out on their reality show 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' and 'Today,' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) where they got into an awkward argument a few days before their show's premiere.

Hoda, Andy Cohen and Khloe Kardashian discussed the up-and-down relationship, and wondered if all the drama, and reconciliation, was an elaborate reality TV setup. Khloe, who knows a thing or two about made-for-TV weddings, said the Simmons-Tweed situation doesn't ring true to her. "That's my only thing, it's just different when you get every single thing on camera," she said.

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed'Family Jewels' fans left hanging by the "will she or won't she?" Season 6 finale need wonder no longer.

We watched Gene Simmons propose (finally!) to longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed back in July and now, instead of settling in for the long engagement some may have expected, the reality TV stars have announced that they're tying the knot next month.

The pair have released a wedding invitation, which reveals that the ceremony will take place on October 1 at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, and that there's a dress code.

"Classy Cocktail Attire Requested ... although we know some Rockstar attire will be worn." (Hey, could that mean that Gene will get hitched in full KISS makeup and boots? We hope so!)

We learned a lot this week. We finally saw how much jibberish the 'Real Housewives' can yell before Andy Cohen reached his breaking point. Jessica Alba learned that she can indeed have sex while pregnant. Gene Simmons learned the hard way that in order to propose to your long-time girlfriend, you must not be so exhausted that you can't form coherent sentences. Lady Gaga confirmed that a 'So You Think You Can Dance' contestant is actually talented. And Kat Von D taught us all the valuable lesson that it might not be the best idea to get a tattoo of Jesse James's face. Check out the clips after the jump, and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb react to Gene Simmons proposing to Shannont Tweed on 'Today'Last month, it appeared Gene Simmons' relationship with Shannon Tweed was on the verge of ending when the two sparred over Simmons' infidelities on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). This week, we saw a much more humble Simmons get down on bended knee, proposing to Tweed on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels.' Thursday on 'Today,' Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb wondered if the couple's appearance on the show had anything to do with the proposal.

They also questioned whether the whole thing had been a set-up to generate ratings for the reality show. "I believe it," said Kotb. "I believe the whole thing." Gifford was suspicious, wondering how the cameras were there to catch the whole thing. Despite the fact that she liked both of them more than she expected, she said, "I don't know what to believe."

Watch Gene Simmons' Hilarious Missed Opportunity to Propose to Shannon Tweed (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 27th 2011 3:17AM
'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'We've already seen the clip when Gene Simmons finally proposed marriage to the mother of his children, Shannon Tweed, in our exclusive sneak preview of yesterday's season finale of 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E). But before that, there was a hilarious non-proposal.

Gene Simmons asked their tour guide in Belize the best place to propose, and he was advised to do it on top of the main temple. All of that was fine and dandy, until Gene started running up the steep steps like he was in his 20s again.

"I ... am tired," he declared, before stumbling and crawling the rest of the way to the top.

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' Finale Preview: Gene Proposes to Shannon

Gene Simmons: Family JewelsIt hasn't been the best of times for Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed on this season of their hit A&E reality show, 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tues., 10PM). However, all that may change with one simple question: "Will you marry me?"

In the sneak peek at Tuesday's episode below, the KISS frontman, who has openly denounced marriage, proposes to longtime girlfriend Tweed.

Over the last few weeks, the duo made some disastrous talk show appearances -- 'Today' in particular -- and Tweed even walked out on Simmons in an earlier episode. Can marriage solve their problems?

"I used to watch movies where they say, 'I can't live without you,' but for me it's true," Simmons says in the clip.

Things Are Still Far From Good Between Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2011 3:35AM
'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'Things are still very tense between Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed. Even though she did stop in to see him on tour, along with their kids, the tension backstage when the two met was palpable on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E).

Simmons seems unsure of what to do to win her over, but we're not sure he's even fully grasped what he's done to be on the verge of losing her. He may understand on some intellectual level, but at a visceral gut level he doesn't seem to fully comprehend her position.

Tweed was there for him in person, but she was hardly there emotionally, and barely there at all. There were long moments of silence. When Gene asked her to stay and have lunch with him, she was quiet. She did not want to go back to his room with him, but did stay with their daughter.

Gene Simmons Meets Shannon's Ex-Boyfriend, Who Took Nude Pictures of Her (VIDEO)

Shannon Tweed, 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'A happy and fun reunion between Shannon Tweed and her old high school boyfriend was more awkward for someone else on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E). Gene Simmons joined the pair and was regaled with giggling stories of their misspent youth.

John Puderak was an old friend of Tweed's brother, and he dabbled a little in photography. In fact, he nabbed the first nude shots of Tweed even before she appeared in 'Playboy,' which seemed to come as a bit of a surprise to Simmons.

Tweed was giggling almost constantly throughout this meeting, and leaning into John, as if Gene's discomfort made her happy. Considering the turmoil in their relationship of late due to his own antics with women, she very well may have been enjoying watching him squirm.

Shannon Tweed Has Perhaps Too Much Fun at the Dead Sea on 'Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'While the Simmons family was clearly having fun on their visit to the Dead Sea on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E), son Nick seemed to be having an experience that was part enjoyable and part traumatizing. This is because his mother, Shannon Tweed, was having a fantastic time.

First, she liberally applied a rejuvenating mud all over her body. Nick joined in the fun, putting some on his face like warpaint and running down the beach. But he returned to find papa Gene Simmons rubbing the mud on Shannon's posterior ... without the cover of her swimsuit.

The Kids Take Their Mother's Side on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 22nd 2011 2:59AM
'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'Things took a very serious turn with the return of 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E) for its sixth season. Gone was the light-hearted tone and silliness that had permeated much of the series, replaced by a relationship that appears to be genuinely collapsing.

In our jaded society, we're quick to say reality television is staged and fake, but this feels very real, and their recent talk show appearances have been less than frendly as well, with Shannon walking out on Gene during one.

Nick and Sophie, who've spent much of their lives seeing their parents as this perfectly blissful union, were suddenly caught in the middle of an emotional rift through the center of their family. As was to be expected, considering the cause of the split, they sided with their mother and even felt Gene should have been the one to leave.
