The last we heard, Shannon Tweed had had enough of Gene
Simmons' um... antics, with the former Playboy playmate claiming to have moved
out of the family’s home, saying there was a “slim chance” that the couple
would get back together. Girl power! So it was somewhat of a shocker to see the
KISS frontman finally get down on bended knee and propose to the mother of his
children after 28 long years in Tuesday night’s finale of Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Even more shocking, Shannon actually
seemed to be considering it! Girl power?
Of course, the episode was taped “several months ago,” as a source confirms, which means that the proposal in Belize actually took place around the same time that Tweed famously walked out of the couple’s interview with The View’s Joy Behar on her HLN show. At that point, Tweed made it clear that she was tired of being disrespected by Simmons, who not only admitted to having slept with “thousands” of women over the years (can someone please explain to me how that’s even physically possible?), but also joked about doing so, right in front of her.
Oh, but what woman could resist a long-awaited fairytale proposal from the man she loves; even if it was written by someone else and produced to maximize the ratings of a reality show?
In the show’s finale, Simmons, 61, proclaims:
“I come with so much baggage. But you’re the only friend I’ve got. You’re the only one I love and you’re the only one I ever will love.
“I’ve never said those words to anybody and I don’t ever want to when I used to watch movies and they say, ‘I can’t live without you’ for me, it’s true.”
But is she the only one he’s ever going to schtup for the rest of his life?!
Tweed, 54, says that things between her and Gene weren’t exactly as picture perfect as the “happily unmarried” couple claimed over the years, telling People, “You’re seeing this happy family, but in my heart, I am dying. I need some sort of commitment. Something has to give.”
We’re not sure that there’s such a thing as commitment from a guy who’s openly admitted to sleeping with thousands of women throughout your relationship, or if marriage is really going to change things for them at this point, but, to each his own.
Should Tweed and Simmons call it quits for good? Will
Shannon accept Gene's proposal? Should she? Sound off in the comments below.
