Gene Simmons
and Shannon Tweed are total publicity whores but their son Nick is ADAMANT their marriage is 100% legit despite criticism that they only tied the knot for reality show ratings.

22-year-old Nick claims he's definitely not surprised by the rumors telling TMZ, "Dad does tend to wear his shameless capitalism on his sleeve. But I was there when the cameras weren't. My parents went through a dark wood and came out still wanting to be together."

Gene and Shannon had been together for 28 years – before finally getting hitched October 1st with the wedding set to air on the new season of A&E's "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels".

Nick added, "All I can say about that is that my mother has the patience of a saint."

It also gave Nick the chance to wear that awesome shirt.

Sorry Nick baby but GSFJ is one of the most SCRIPTED "reality" shows out there. You might be able to tell that BS to your hanger on'r friends but most intelligent folks know the truth.

.


In fact although GSFW was watchable the first few seasons these last couple of seasons have been a real "jump the shark" show.

.

And Shannon needs to take some acting lessons. That was a HORRIBLE and UNBELIEVABLE performance she gave when she stormed off that cable talk show. Sorry but it was so bad I can't recall if it was Joy Behar or Piers Morgan but a believable actress Shannon Tweed is not.

Listen, Talk to any rock n roll band from the 7os and it;s the same story. Shannon kept the family intact and she did it with class. Both kids are down to earth and not spoiled like Pari******on or Lindsey Lohan. He made some important realizations on the last few shows and they were insightful and honest. He is also a businessman who takes care of his family. Great Job to both of them!

this coming from a kid whose comic was pulled when it turned out he plagiarized the majority of it from Japanese manga artist, Tite Kubo and his manga "BLEACH". http://bleachness.livejournal.com/446299.html

What a joke. They would do anything to keep their show on the air. And I do mean anything. He's always been a pig and it looks like it's rubbed off on all of them. It's nice to see his kid has no class just like his phony parents. Ugh.

This is a good family and sucessful Gene Simmons has done a lot for our Military and has shown a grate deal of love for what they do for our Country. He loves his Mother dearly for what she went through. He is a good man who has never drank alcohol or done drugs. How many stars and especially rock bands can say that? He wanted to be a good son to make his mother proud and show his love by being a good son. I love their show.Shame on you who made such nasty comments just because his Son said something good about his family. Do you think his family has no feelings or do you not care ?

This will be my last post on this awful show so ENJOY! Gene Simmons supports the military because they support him. Not by defending his freedom but by being the social class that buys his awful, cheap made in China merchandise.

I have never met a college-educated person who was interested in KISS. Most consider them a joke-band. I admire that they have been successful and have maybe a good show and loyal following but Gene Simmons doesn't do anything which isn't planned.

The families that serve in the military are the only social-classes that buy his junk music and t-shirts. His merchandise is made for poor, uneducated people who just plain don't know any better and are 30 years behind the times, this isn't to knock the people who support the troops but if Gene Simmons really supported the troops he would send them to Iraq as PART OF the military. But since like every other rich, educated and savvy family they don't. Leave the war to the lowest social-classes, let em' come home to PTSD and cheap KISS merchandise.

Simmons wedding much better and had way more "meaning" than the phony over the top Kardashion/ Humphries wedding! Gene and Shannon had been together for many many years ! AND Gene FINALLY figured out he couldn't live without Shannon. REAL REASONS TO BE MARRIED!! NOT to have a party like the Kardashions wanted! note: SO glad to hear the PRESIDENT doesn't like Kardashion show. Kids to young to watch such filth!! But Michelle allows it? What is up with that Mrs. Pres?
