Gene Simmons Family Jewels: Joy Behar Questions Show’s Reality

June 15, 2011 08:08 PM by Shayla Perry

Gene Simmons has been making a lot of headlines since the premiere of his A&E reality show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels. There have been secrets, lies, and more awkward television appearances than we care to count. But is the drama for real? That’s exactly what talk host Joy Behar wanted to know when Simmons’ long-time (soon-to-be ex) partner,  Shannon Tweed, walked out of the interview on her HLN show. What do you think?

On Wednesday (June 15) night’s episode of HLN’s Joy Behar Show, KISS rocker Gene Simmons and his partner of 28 years, Shannon Tweed, make an appearance to talk about the new season of their show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

When The View co-host brings up Simmons’ “philandering ways,” and his claim of having sex with almost 5,000 women (we’re still working out the math on that one), Gene makes light of the er– lifestyle he’s led over the years, sending Shannon into a quiet rage, and eventually right off the set.

Gene blames Joy for the “set-up,” but the comedian quickly tells him that she has her doubts as to whether or not the exchange was genuine.

We’re the first to admit that reality television has its share of tawdry shows that have more writers and staged scenes than the average sitcom, but what do you think…

Is all the drama between Gene and Shannon real, or not?

Check out this clip of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed on The Joy Behar Show, and let us know your thoughts. Real, fake, or as Joy would say, “So what? Who cares?”

    I have always kinda liked Gene. He’s not perfect, no one is. But he really needs to get his head outta his behind here. If this is fake, it is beyond insulting to his partner. If real, he has some major problems he needs to address. I guess it should come as no surprise, he never was willing to marry her, so maybe it is time to dump her for two twenty somethings. No commitment. Apparently to anything…

    Go Joy……….. hold em to it! Gene Simmons needs to pull his head out of his butt and realize that he is not 25 anymore and there are things in this life that are more important than knockin off every sweet thing that walks by…… Hold him to it Shannon and if he doesn’t like it, take all his crap……..

    Gene is slut,Shannon need to get the heck out of there ASAP. She is also not very smart to stay with Gene!! She could have done better years ago.She is as much at fault for staying with such a creep AND
    don’t Joy at ll. Shannon knew what she was into and should have left thee sicko (Gene) years ago, but of corse, like all mothers..she stayed.

    I think Joy is a total Bitch and I cant stand her one sided views and the way she struts around like a male turkey with the feathers all out for show. I stopped watching HLN and CNN because of her and I would not have seen this if not for YAHOO, but as it always is around this woman stir up drama and make other people sad for being in her presenance. A real Drama Queen..
    I think Gene is in love with her and she has this mans heart, ok this will probably change him for her good and she will be happy if she can forget the bad and look for the good.

    That type of philandering lifestyle will only get you so far in life. Poor guy… he’s filling this empty soul with all the wrong things…

    Forgive me for noticing the obvious; if you live together and refrain from getting a formal marriage arrangement, that implies a temporary or non exclusive arrangement.

    GENE IS VAGUE, VAGUE, VAGUE,. HE WILL NOT ADMIT ANY WRONG DOING. HE SKIRTS EVERY QUESTION AND THEN WHEN HE STATES ON BAHAR THAT SHANNON KEEPS HIM GROUNDED. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!!!! THAT IS HER JOB TO KEEP HIM GROUNDED? THIS IS ALL ABOUT HIM GETTING CAUGHT AND TRYING TO MAKE JOKES.
    HE JUST DOESN’T GET IT, HE HAS HURT SOMEONE WHO HAS STOOD BY HIM FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND PUT UP WITH HIS BULLSHIT ABOUT NOT BELIEVING IN MARRIAGE TO KEEP FROM MARRYING HER. WHAT A SCHMUCK.
    HE IS JUST ONE BIG EXCUSE. HE IS A DISGRACE. AT LEAST HAVE THE DECENCY TO LET HER GO AND GET A LIFE.

    Hey, when they filmed in Whistler a few years ago, when they “accidentally” booked into the same space as another family. Well a script was accidentally left behind. Yes a script for the “family” who they were supposed to have crashed in on.

    The dialogue might not be scripted on the Simmons side, but the scenarios are. They are smart savvy business people, Shannon included. They know what it is all about. Not buying it….
