Using Boobs to Get out of a Ticket on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

Using Boobs to Get out of a Ticket on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels''Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 9PM on A&E) is a reality show dealing with the family life of 'KISS' rocker Gene Simmons. Because otherwise, we would never know what was happening in Gene Simmons' personal life. (And hey! Remember when A&E used to actually show, like, Shakespeare plays and stuff? No? We can barely remember either.)

ANY-way. On the latest episode, Gene's wife Shannon Tweed goes on a road trip in order to visit her husband. Shannon is also joined by her sister. Unfortunately, along the way, they are pulled over by the cops for speeding. Shannon and her sister have an instantaneous good idea. They'll just look all hot and adjust their boobs in order to get out of the ticket! That always works! Unfortunately, the cop who pulled them over is a woman. Uh-oh. Not so good. And the female cop isn't so charmed by their efforts.

Gene Simmons Is 'Smarter Than a 5th Grader'His decades as a member of KISS haven't provided Gene Simmons with much interaction with fifth graders (thankfully). But that didn't deter him from appearing on 'Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?,' nor hinder his raising a record amount for charity in the process.

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!

Angry Band Member on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'On last night's 'Family Jewels' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on A&E), Gene Simmons and the rest of KISS were in New Orleans to perform at the annual Voo Doo Fest. While backstage, Simmons was introduced to a fellow rocker, and the conversation was civil at first. "I'm Jonathan Bell from the Love Rhinos. We're the band that got bumped because you decided to play the Fest."

Gene's Mother Visits KISS Backstage on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

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.

Gene Simmons Shows Off His Tongue on 'Jimmy Fallon' (VIDEO)

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Gene SimmonsGene Simmons stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), and we learned way more about his freakishly long tongue than we really need to know.

For example, it took him a while to figure out what to do with it. Also, it gets musty in there, so he has to air it out. Did we really need to see it, though, Gene? Really? It just confirms what we've known all along – that you're descended from lizards.

The show gives fans and voyeurs a peek behind the makeup into the rock icon's family life with longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed, son Nick, daughter Sophie and dog Snippy.

Gene Simmons to judge Jingles

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 17th 2008 12:26PM
Gene Simmons guitarI've always enjoyed jingles, you know, those catchy commercial tunes that get in your head and never leave. "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." See, after all these years, it's still there. I wonder if Gene Simmons would have liked that McDonald's jingle?

We'll soon find out what the Kiss star likes in musical commercial craftsmanship because Gene Simmons has been tapped as one of the judges on the CBS reality show Jingles. It's a competition show, from producer Mark Burnett, he of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, Survivor and The Apprentice fame. We'll just forget about the ones that didn't fly, like On the Lot (that was painful to watch), Pirate Master (unwatchable) and Rock Star: INXS (truly a train wreck).

Jingles should be pretty challenging for contestants; it's hard to fake it when it comes to writing words and lyrics. The winner gets a contract with an advertising agency and $100,000.
