Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed

After 28 years together, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed finally tied the knot yesterday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Among the nearly 400 guests were Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher and the members of KISS ... including Paul Stanley, who was in the wedding party.

We're told Tweed was wearing $2.5 million of diamonds for the first dance ... and that does NOT include engagement ring. Michael Raven handmade the jewelry -- which included 13 pieces for the bride and bridal party, consisting of earrings necklaces and a $420,000 bracelet.

The couple's two kids -- Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19 -- were also there, with Sophie serving as maid of honor.

Gene Simmons is a very savy businessman. No way they are 'legally married'. He's not going to give whatever he's made, maked or will be making and Tweed would be entitled to half just because they are married. Don't think so.

Guaranteed their marriage dies within 2 years. He wants an "open relationship", where he can boff as many groupie sluts as he wants, and marriage ain't it. Say goodbye to this relationship...

This is a business man. This is a business marriage and fodder for the continuation of the "Simmons" reality series. This does not wipe away the fact that Simmons denied Tweed her due respect over the years, nor does it rectify her acceptance of it. This is Hollywood and Rock & Roll, folks. Long live Rock & Roll!

On a serious note, Gene Simmons is a crusty old pig that sowed his wild oats at the expense of other peoples daughters, sisters and friends. He now will be restless in his sleep....Jewish guilt, guilty conscience, and dirty behavior makes for a restless soul. Night-night....zzzzzz

Shannon is a good example of what REALLY happens to the scores of women that do Playboy and the whole, sexist Playboy philosophy on women.

She hooks up briefly with Hef. Now she's his sloppy seconds, so she hooks up with the leeches that hang around the Playboy House of Herpes looking for seconds, like Simmons. She has no talent, no education and no career hopes. Simmons is the best she can do, and he cheats on her non-stop for 28 years. It wasn't written about because no one cared about either of these has beens until Simmons conned a reality show out of A&E as an alternative to the Osbornes. Then a sex tape of Simmons and another girl surfaces, and he marries her to prop up the ratings. In the meantime, she spends a fortune on botox and bad plastic surgery. Not what girls aspire to in 2011.

I am so happy for Shannon & Genie & family!! It's about time Gene, in some states, if your living together after 7 years, its considered a "commom law marriage", but who cares, Shannon deserves it. God Bless Both of you and your families.

Congratulations you two. Never mind alot of these comments on here. Shannon, your still a doll baby. Gene your the man. And congrats on 28 years so far. Proud of you two. Most of Hollywood can't make that claim! Daughter being the maid of honor was a neat idea. Dave
