Six Reality TV Stars Who've Gone the Distance

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!

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.

While Gene Simmons may be best known as the long-tongued bassist from Kiss, he's slowly but surely proving he also has a knack for reality TV, as 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' sails into its fourth season Sundays at 9 p.m. on A&E.

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 talked to AOL TV about his disdain for marriage, why he could take anyone's girl and how Adam Lambert may have already killed his post-'American Idol' career. -- By Katy Kroll

Family matters for Gene Simmons and the Sopranos

Gene Simmons doesn't want more kidsWhen it comes to the birth of a new KISS licensing opportunity, Gene Simmons is open arms. When it comes to the discussion of a birth of another Family Jewel, he has a completely different reaction.

Matriarch Shannon Tweed prodded Gene about bringing another bundle of joy into the Simmons' clan. Less than excited, Gene suggested they adopt a child and bet that she'd drop the idea after enduring a year-long process.

Following in the footsteps of Madonna and Angelina Jolie, Shannon brought home an innocent African-American baby. This is where the situation stops being funny. Although there were very cute moments between the baby and Gene, it's really become unpalatable to watch another celebrity bring home a child like a pet. Even if it was in jest, it just seems in bad taste to make adopting a baby such a cavalier joke.

Last night, we also welcomed back the Sopranos family into our homes ...
