Gene Simmons And Shannon Tweed Are Finally Married

October 02, 2011 06:00 AM by Lisa Princ

The last time we heard from Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, the couple set a wedding date, only after Shannon said she was not sure they would end up married! Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have indeed kept the date they set. That’s right, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed finally tied the knot last night! Read on for more!

After the much anticipated proposal to Shannon Tweed by Gene Simmons on the season finale of Gene Simmons Family Jewels on A&E, Shannon Tweed was not so sure the pair would be walking down the aisle. But, then the couple decided on a wedding date of October 1, and apparently they kept it as they were officially married last night! A rep for the famous couple confirmed to People Magazine that Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed had a ceremony outside on the crystal lawn at the Beverly Hills hotel yesterday.

After 28 years and two children, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed said their vows, which they wrote themselves, yesterday in front of 400 guests, including everyone from Hugh Hefner to Gene’s fellow KISS band members. Shannon donned a beautiful ivory Priscilla of Boston gown, and held a bouquet of garden ivory roses. For their first dance, the pair chose a very fitting “At Last” by Etta James, which was set to be performed by their 19-year-old daughter Sophie.

A huge congratulations to the happy couple – it’s about dang time! A wedding special is supposed to air on A&E later this month for your enjoyment! Are you shocked that Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed finally tied the knot? Share your thoughts with us below!

    All I can say is CONGRATULATIONS! No matter the celebrity status, the drama and pain leading up to the decision or the many years of waiting – 2 people who obviously loved each other deeply married. It is a beautiful happy time for them and their children.

    Did they do it out of love, or for want of ratings? Their airing of personal relationship details, contrived or not, for reality tv was tasteless.

    They should have kept this for themselves, and their families. Now, I guess they’ll have to pair up with the Kardashians to “take it to the next level”.

    Shannon waited a long time and was the love of Gene’s life. Glad to see they’ve joined together as one in marriage. Wishing them nothing but the best from here on out. Also, hope Gene doesn’t regret it!

    Gene and Shannon, Nick and Sophie,

    Congratulations! It is about time, i have been a fan of Gene’s since the 70′s. As i grew up and you were an idol of mine. However, after watching the show i became more of a fan of the entire family, i almost lost repect for you towards the end of the season, Shannon has done a marvelous job caring for you and your 2 children, she deserves only the best. I am so over the moon happy for all of you. You have become a bigger idol of mine, when you stepped up and married her, congratulations again,i pray you have a long and continued happy life. I look foward to tuning in this year to your show.

    Seems they’re screaming law and order when I go with anyone’s daughter. Woman I should like some peace and daddy hold your tongue, I think you’re gonna die of fright when I tell you what I’ve done. I can hear your tales and lies you say I’m bum and scraggy but man this bum and scraggy is your daughter’s baby’s daddy. She’s a lucky daughter such a lucky daughter. Why did I always get the kind of girl I didn’t want to get? Now I got what I always fought for cause I married a rich man’s daughter! Courtesy of DP!

    I’m not surprised. Having recently participated in a reality show myself, I know how they operate. They are out to get the highest rating. One way to do that is to do something spectacular. In the case of the show I was on, there is an on-air proposal of the town’s fire chief to his long-time girlfriend. This show will probably be one of the top-rated shows that week.

    Now Gene keep away from the hotties!! You got a hottie by your side for life now.

    This couple HAS shown their loyalty to each other and their children by completing their cycle. 28 years for a couple to make their commitment shows us all that BOTH of them are COMMITTED TO EACH OTHER. WAY TO GO!!!

    Gene should have had Shannon and the kids live in poverty for one year. Then, if they still didn’t like his behavior, he’d change.

    I am glad they got Married.I think she is the only one that would have put up with him all these years if she didn’t love him, I am sure the kids like the Idea of their Parents being married, finally! Now If will just last! Congratz To the both of them.

    To all of you haters, I have met Gene Simmons and he is an awesome man. He took the time to spend with my son on a Make a Wish trip this past summer. He was humble and gracious. He spoke highly of Shannon when asked and I know that he loves her. I too think it was time after 28 years but that was their decision to make not anyone else’s. I wish them the best and hope that they are together for a long time to come.

    Look I could care less if they wed or not but i’m commenting because of how long it actually took them to tie the knot. 28 years loong friggin years…28?…seriously! Not only does the dude leave little to be desired…especially since he had two kids with her, he should have made her an honourable woman looooong time ago! Seriously! mother of your children deserves a show of loyalty to her, especially as a show of respect to having kids together and commitment that you willing to risk to get the damned biscuit!
    All the best!

    I love you guys and the show. Would you consider helping me have a professional Haarley rider and me get to the place of Harley heaven. I have a motorcycle (Sporster 1200). It would make a great show. I’m a funny lady that is about the same age as Shanon. Please help me reach my goal of a life time. I also love your music and your attitude towards life. Let’s get on with the fun.
