The 61-year-old KISS rocker’s proposal took place in Belize. It was televised last night on the season 6 finale of the pair’s A&E reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” at 10 p.m. ET.
The episode, called “Belize It Or Not,” was taped several months ago. Yet it is not known if Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed are actually married. Simmons and Tweed, a 54-year-old former Playboy Playmate and actress, have been together for at least 28 years and have two children together: Nick (22) and Sophie (18).
In the episode Simmons tells Tweed in a romantic ocean setting, “You’re the only friend I’ve got. You’re the only one I’ve ever loved. You’re the only one I love and you’re the only one I will love. I’ve never said those words to anybody.”
We then saw Simmons get down on one knee and propose. Tweed is seen putting her hand on her mouth and weeping. But her answer was not shown.
That poor editing decision, rather than a cliff-hanger, has left fans furious.
Tweed later Tweeted a plug for the show’s next season in the fall and called her answer to Gene’s proposal, “the hardest decision I ever had to make.”
However, People magazine recently reported that she had moved out of the family home and that there was a “slim chance” of her reconciling with Simmons. She said she was tired of Simmons’ “wandering eye.” The rocker has famously claimed to have bedded some 5,000 women.
Also during the finale, Simmons is seen talking to his and Tweed’s daughter, Sophie, about his upcoming proposal.
“We’ve dated for 28 years. I’m an idiot. I thought maybe it’s time she made an honest man out of me.”
So what do you think Shannon Tweed’s answer will be? Can you wait until the fall to find out?
