News of the wedding has put to rest the discussion that raged among fans of their A&E reality TV show Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels, when the last season ended with Gene’s proposal to Shannon but we didn’t get to hear her answer.
The wedding of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed was held outdoors at The Beverly Hills Hotel and of course it was filmed the couple’s A & E reality TV series. A special wedding episode is expected to air later this month.
It was attended by over 400 guests including Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher and Gene’s KISS band members.
Fans of Gene Simmons’ Family jewel saw bassist Simmons (62) propose to his former Playboy Playmate girlfriend (54) with a 24-carat diamond on the finale of reality series in July. Not knowing her answer to the proposal drove some fans crazy! It seems cliffhanger endings really are not popular these days.
Gene and Shannon have been together for 28 years and have two children together: Nick (22) and Sophie (19) Sopie served as Maid of Honor at her parents’ wedding and sang Etta James’ At Last for their first dance.
Gene Simmons told Entertainment Tonight prior to his wedding,
“It is time for me to grow up. I’m 62. I’ve been doing a lot of wacky stuff for an awfully long time…and there’s nobody I’ve ever said ‘I love you’ to. But I love Shannon with all my heart and all my soul, and always will.”
