Family Jewels: Shannon Says Yes

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed To Tie the Knot Three Days Before Family Jewels Premier

By , Contributor
Could there have been any other ending? When the Family Jewels Season 6 ended in July, showing Gene Simmons on bended knee asking Shannon Tweed to marry him, did you actually think she’s say no?

We can’t say that we were sure, but today we can say goodbye to all your doubts, since the invitation to the long-time couple’s nuptials are in the mail for a ceremony that will take place on October 1, just days before their A& E show returns to the air on October 4. So really, how long do you think this event was planned?


In case you aren’t one of the glitterati invited, the wedding invitation will take place at the rather posh Beverly Hills Hotel, at half-past five. The couple asked people to don “classy cocktail attire,” adding, “although we know some Rockstar attire will be worn.” Like the groom?

Along with the invitation, there was a rather tongue-in-cheek note from the couple’s two children, Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, which said:

“After 28 years of two loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot,” the letter reads. “Our Mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our Father’s life… well it doesn’t change much.”

You can see more excruciatingly cute details when the series returns to the air on October 4. The action will pick up right where last season left off in the one-hour premiere. And yes, we get to see her give her teary assent.
