Gene Simmons and His Partner Make Us Uncomfortable on ‘The Joy Behar Show’

gene simmons lead singer in kissWe have no idea what is going on between KISS rocker Gene Simmons and his female partner of 28 years…they appeared on the Joy Behar Show, and it was just plain weird. They were either a really sad pair, or this was a poorly acted promotion for their new reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

Either way, it was an uncomfortable interview to watch. Shannon Tweed, who has put up with Simmons for nearly three decades, gets angry when Simmons jokes about the many women that he’s slept with, and she walks off-stage. She seems to really hate his philandering ways – and yet she is starring in a reality show that directly calls attention to Simmons’ penis with its title!

Hypocrite, or just plain f’ed up?

    She’s in a situation that she chose for herself.  I don’t feel too sorry for her.  She at least enjoys the pleasures of living with a rock star, and possibly cashes in on some of the fame/notoriety of being Simmons’ g.f.  It’s true that there is less legal/financial security in being someone’s partner as opposed to being their spouse; but she probably enjoys many benefits of being in the limelight.

    She choose to have his children out of wedlock ,  learn to live with it.

  • “Don’t put this on me!”  Well played, Joy.

  • Okay, let’s be honest here… not many people want to sleep with Gene Simmons. He’s a gargoyle at best. I have a feeling that while he was touring BEFORE the reality show, there were not as many young girls out there hitting on him. Now there are KISS fans AND Gene Simmons fans. I have a feeling that Shannon was young and hot, and not worried about him cheating. Now her kids are gone, and he’s all she’s got left… and he’s out touring again. I also get the sense that this is more than “he’s always been a philanderer.” I think this is an incident bigger than people know about. Just a feeling… maybe not just sex, but a relationship. I honestly feel for them both. She’s clearly upset, and he clearly still cares about her. Married or not, they LIVE like they’re married… and what they’re going through is much like a divorce. I don’t care what lifestyle you choose for yourself, as long as it’s not hurting anyone, you don’t deserve heart ache and pain. I always got the impression they really loved each other and their family. I never thought it was a relationship made of money. I don’t know, I don’t know them… but I don’t wish them ill.

    Shannon Tweed is a biatch! If she’s ‘tired of it’ then she should shut the hell up and leave.

    She knows the gig. She agreed to do the interview. Whether she likes who Gene is or not she has an obligation to go on the air, be civil, do the interview, and act like an adult. Listen, nobody would blame her for leaving him. But she has allowed the lifestyle so she could be rich, have a famous husband, having a Rock Star and live the easy life. Gene is a cad. But she is an irrational drama queen if she thinks that all of America is going to feel pity for her under these circumstances.
