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.

Years ago, my daughter loved to listen to KISS. One look at Gene and I was certain he was not only dressed like the devil himself - but in fact, HE WAS THE DEVIL!!! I was sure he was a drug addict, evil, and a immoral human being. BUT, now that I have watched many of the Family Jewels shows, I have changed my opinion of Gene. I know for certain he loves his children and I hope he understands how lucky he is that Shannon has stood by him and loves him as much as she does. She is a beautiful, exceptional woman that has managed to not trash her life. And she deserves tons of credit for raising 2 great kids.

Publicity whores? I am 68 years old and I'm ridiculously obsessed with this couple! If they go off the air I'll have withdrawals.
