“Tip Tuesday” Advice to Gene Simmons (Part 16)

Gene, 61, and Shannon, 54, have been together for 27 years and have two children, Nicholas, 22, and Sophie, 19.


Fans of Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels may be asking themselves “Are Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed engaged or what?” This comes after a rocky season for the high profile couple on the show and a shocking proposal during last night’s finale.

While it was a touching moment to see the KISS frontman actually open up and commit fully to his longtime love (something she’s been wanting from him for a while), the moment may be bittersweet considering it happened months ago and a lot has changed since they filmed that scene.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Tweed revealed that she had moved out of their home and that the chances of them getting back together were “slim.”

As the finale aired last night, Tweed opened up to her Twitter followers with a few messages like “Thank you for watching and supporting me. It means the world” and “We are taking it day by day. Stay tuned.”

The real question in the back of everyone’s minds is whether the whole breakup/proposal situation was simply a storyline for the show and an attempt to draw publicity to a show that’s ratings may have been seeing a decrease.

If that was the plan, it worked.

In the photo above, taken on July 18 and posted by Tweed on Twitter, she seems to have a ring on her engagement finger (although it is bright pink – I didn’t get to see the finale last night, did they show the ring?). I’m sure she wouldn’t be wearing an actual engagement ring at that time with the risk that some might notice and ask but wearing any type of ring on that finger is very symbolic and may be a hint that they’re still together.

By the looks of this photo – Shannon and Gene are still very happy.

Seems like they’re definitely still together, although exact wedding plans may be put on hold. Gene tweeted, “Shannon and I work on our relationship every day. One day at a time. Thanks for watching. When we figure out our lives, you will know.”

Do you think Gene and Shannon are better off together or apart?


It is obvious that Gene has been guilty of affairs all during the last 28 years. Will he straighten up and realize what he has in his family and be faithful to his wife?

In the sermon at Fellowship Bible Church at July 24, 2011, teaching pastor Brandon Barnard made a great point about the two choices that you have. You can walk down the pathway of purity or impurity. The pathway of impurity is both persuasive and inviting. 

Proverbs 5:3

English Standard Version (ESV)

3For the lips of a forbidden[a] woman drip honey,
and her speech[b] is smoother than oil,

Proverbs 6:24

English Standard Version (ESV)

24to preserve you from the evil woman,[a]
from the smooth tongue of the adulteress.[b]

Proverbs 7:10-20

English Standard Version (ESV)

  10And behold, the woman meets him,

dressed as a prostitute, wily of heart.[a]
11She is loud and wayward;
her feet do not stay at home;
12now in the street, now in the market,
and at every corner she lies in wait.
13She seizes him and kisses him,
and with bold face she says to him,
14“I had to offer sacrifices,[b]
and today I have paid my vows;
15so now I have come out to meet you,
to seek you eagerly, and I have found you.
16I have spread my couch with coverings,
colored linens from Egyptian linen;
17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh,
aloes, and cinnamon.
18Come, let us take our fill of love till morning;
let us delight ourselves with love.
19For my husband is not at home;
he has gone on a long journey;
20he took a bag of money with him;
at full moon he will come home.”


After his marriage to Shannon will he be faithful? Is Gene Simmons going to continue to have affairs with other women that are evil? However, the Bible calls her an “evil woman.” What kind of future will have with an evil woman that is not your the wife of your youth?  Later in chapter 7 Solomon says, “All at once he follows her,    as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast[c 23till an arrow pierces its liver; as a bird rushes into a snare;    he does not know that it will cost him his life.27Her house is the way to Sheol,    going down to the chambers of death. ”
