More Trouble Between Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons

July 13, 2011

On last night’s episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, we watched as whatever progress Gene has made with Shannon Tweed went right down the drain. The KISS power couple journeyed to Shannon′s home town of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Canada. Almost immediately, Gene Simmons began to feel ignored as Shannon was getting all of the attention.

A local radio station wanted to interview her, not even asking if Gene would be present. The city tourism board decided to name a street after her. The local hockey team wanted her to drop a ceremonial puck. Not to mention just how her family focused on her with old stories and photos. Gene wound up falling asleep in the Tweed living room while Shannon′s family showered her with love.

To make matters worse, Gene went from just feeling left out to actual jealousy when an old boyfriend arranged for a party for Shannon to reconnect with friends from school. After a mere two days of this, Gene calls his business manager to see if there is anything he can line up for him while in Saskatoon. At the hockey game, Gene embarrassed Shannon when she returns to find two young women sitting on his lap right in front of her family. During the reunion party, Gene dragged Shannon away early, because he had an appointment first thing the next morning. Shannon was not happy at all, especially since the next day was the street-naming ceremony.

So Gene attends his meeting, which oddly enough was with the tourism bureau, whose members offhandedly remarked to Gene as he was leaving, ″We′ll see you at the Art Center.″ So Gene arrives at the Art Center just as Shannon gets her street sign from the mayor of Saskatoon and Gene knew nothing about it. The room was full of her family and friends to honor her and they took notice that Gene arrived late. After the ceremony, they went horseback riding, where Shannon tells Gene that she′s decided to stay in town longer. Before Gene can argue with her, she gallops off leaving Gene in her dust.

With only two more new episodes of Gene Simmons Family Jewels left to go, the situation between Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed is not looking good again. Shannon spends an extra week or so in Canada with her family while Gene mopes about in Los Angeles alone, visiting his shrink. Dr. Ann Wexler is trying to get him to come to terms with his self-absorbed mania, but is it too little, too late? Stay tuned, folks!

    I’m sorry but I think Shannon was completely out of line getting upset about the hockey game incident. I mean come on, it was just a couple of teenage fans getting their picture taken. He’s a rock star! Fans are going to want to get their picture taken with him. It was completely innocent. Just a couple kids. He did nothing wrong in this particular case and Shannon completely overreacted. After that I was thinking maybe he should just leave her. Then again, you have to take all of it with a grain of salt. Previous seasons have been unabashedly scripted and so obviously fake. Who’s to say all or at least some of this tension isn’t also contrived for the show.
