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 and Shannon Tweed Display Unraveling Relationship on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford asked Gene Simmons Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) if he were in "deep pooky." There are all sorts of slang definitions for that word, and we're assuming Gifford did not mean Garfield's beloved bear. But Simmons is in deep trouble, if his longtime partner Shannon Tweed's responses in Monday's interview are any indication.

The interview centered around Simmons' infidelities, starting with a photo of him with other women. "Oh, kill me now," Simmons said, fiddling with his collar. Tweed looked angry to be there. Hoda Kotb asked Simmons about his assertion that he didn't know the women except from that photo. "Please," said Tweed. "What he means is he didn't know their names."

Tweed said the relationship has pretty much unraveled, but in the interest of the upcoming season of 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' which details the situation, she didn't want to say too much. "I don't want to give away everything," she said, "but it's not looking great."

Shannon Tweed Nearly Smothers a Snoring Gene Simmons on 'Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

Shannon Tweed on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels'It's the middle of the night. If this were during the KISS glory years, Gene Simmons would still be wide-eyed, perhaps backstage after a concert and surrounded by groupies.

But on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Sun., 9PM ET on AETV) he's in bed and snoring heavily. Longtime partner Shannon Tweed turns him over. The Demon still won't shut up. She grabs a pillow, lunges toward him and plants it firmly over his face, holding it there with the full weight of her body.

He snorts and muffles, "Stop it!" She quietly removes the pillow and returns to her side of the bed. "Mom tried to kill me, you know that?" Gene later tells their son Nick.

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' 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 ...
