Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed Marriage Appears Unlikely
First, we were excited by a video preview of Gene Simmons' marriage proposal to longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed on last night's season finale of 'Family Jewels.' Then, the reality show teased all of us by letting Tweed's answer be a cliffhanger. Now, we find out that the engagement may be on the rocks since the taping of the episode.
According to People magazine, the taping of the proposal was several months ago and it's been a bumpy ride for the Kiss singer-bassist and the actress/model ever since. In a recent interview with People, Tweed admitted, "You're seeing this happy family, but in my heart, I am dying." She also said she moved out of their home and gave the relationship a 'slim chance.'
More recently, as in the last 12 hours, Tweed herself tweeted, 'We are taking it day by day. Stay tuned.'
And for those of us who thought we cleverly spotted an engagement ring on Tweed's left ring finger during the confessional portions of the show, it turns out we were were greatly mistaken:
"And to everyone who thinks they know," tweets Tweed. "I AM NOT wearing an engagement ring in the couch interviews. Just an every day ring. Sorry."
So, it doesn't look like a marriage will happen anytime soon for Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed. But with this unpredictable couple, we never know.
