Shannon Tweed

Shannon Lee Tweed (born March 10, 1957) is a Canadian actress and model. One of the most successful actresses of mainstream erotica, she is identified with the genre of the erotic thriller. Tweed currently lives with her longtime partner Gene Simmons of Kiss and their two children. Tweed was born in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, to a mink rancher. She was raised on a mink ranch in Whitbourne, Newfoundland and Labrador. After her father was badly injured in an auto accident, her mother was left to the children on her own while her father was recuperating. Eventually her mother had to sell the ranch to support her children. When Shannon's father discovered that the ranch had been sold, he was very angry, which led to a divorce. Shannon's mother moved the family to her home town in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Tweed graduated from Mount Royal Collegiate in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and became involved in beauty pageants at a young age.
