'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."

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!)

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.

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

'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)

'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.

'Gene Simmons Family Jewels': Shannon Walks Out on Gene (VIDEO)

gene simmons, shannon tweed, gene simmons family jewelsIt looks like Gene Simmons' wandering eye (and hands and, er, other parts) finally caught up with him on the season premiere of 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E TV).

Simmons' long-time partner Shannon Tweed confronted the KISS rocker after spying an online photograph of him cavorting with a pair of blonde babes while he was supposed to be at a "business meeting."

Tweed wasn't joking when she told TV Guide that Season 6 would "show lots of warts this year." After grilling Simmons about his night out, a tearful Tweed said that she was "sick" of living with Simmons and headed straight for the door.

Kathie Lee and Hoda Rehash Awkward Gene Simmons/Shannon Tweed Interview (VIDEO)

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford talk about Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed on 'Today'Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb conducted an uncomfortable interview with Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed that focused on Simmons' infidelity. Simmons was shown photos of himself with other women, and Tweed said their longtime relationship was unraveling. Perhaps they'll be pioneering a breakup-in-progress reality show on the new season of 'Family Jewels'.

Tuesday, Gifford and Kotb read the Twitter responses from both Simmons and Tweed about the appearance. Simmons, not surprisingly, didn't enjoy the interview. "Kathie Lee and Hoda tore into me," he posted. "Shannon is the angel. I'm the devil." Tweed, however, enjoyed herself, asking via Twitter for a couch full of single guys for her next appearance.

Gifford said she had thought they both knew what they were getting into when they started their relationship, one between a rock star and Playboy model. "I think both of them were not children when they got together," she said. "I think both of them went in with their eyes wide open."

Gene Simmons' Mother Visits on 'Family Jewels'Is watching Gene Simmons' tiny mom reminisce with her son while he's in full KISS attire cute or completely bizarre? It could go either way on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Sun., 9PM ET on AETV).

Gene's partner/baby-momma Shannon Tweed thinks it's cute, like when mother Flora hugs the Demon bassist and says, "You're my darling son, God bless you." But not so sweet when Flora then casually mentions all the bras and panties women throw at Gene in concerts.

Later Flora's grandkids Nick and Sophie have their own take on Grandma as she "rocks out" to her son's music.
