Almost 2 weeks ago, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, were finally married, but while many of us were in awe, critics have accused the couple of getting married for the sake of the show. Was the wedding just a publicity stunt? Not according to Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed’s son. Read on for more!
After 28 years and many heartaches together, on October 1, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed were finally married, but now some folks have accused the famous couple of tying the knot simply for publicity. While it certainly sounds feasible, Gene and Shannon’s son Nick says it simply is not true. 22-year-old Nick recently told TMZ.com: “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.”
Like the rest of us, Nick is not quite sure what took his father, Gene Simmons so long, but he is certain that it was not staged for the show, publicity, ratings or anything of the sort. Nick also told TMZ: “All I can say about that is that my mother has the patience of a saint,” as he proudly donned a black t-shirt that read “no longer a bastard.”
Whether you believe it was real or a publicity stunt is up to you, but Nick and the rest of the family assure us that it was not. You can catch the wedding on the upcoming season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, according to A&E. What do you think of the publicity stunt rumors? Do you think this was the real thing?
