Gene Simmons proposes to Shannon Tweed

It looks like Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have managed to smooth things over.

The longtime couple got into a tiff so nasty on "The Joy Behar Show" in mid-June that it won a spot on our list of the top 10 best interview "walk-offs." You see, Simmons, lothario that he's rumored to be, joined in a joke about his philandering ways, ticking Tweed off so much that she stormed off the set.

But in an upcoming episode of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," the KISS star is trying to put a ring on his love of 28 years.

As seen in a clip of the show, Simmons sets up a romantic scene with Tweed by heading to Belize.

He tells her, "I come with so much baggage, but you're the only friend I've got, you're the only one I've ever loved...I've never said those words to anybody. It's funny, I used to watch movies where they say I can't live without you, but for me it's true."

And then Simmons drops down on one knee as Tweed gives a gasp of surprise. Although she looks like she's about to shed tears of what we hope is joy, the clip ends before we get to see her answer. We've got an idea on how it all plays out, but you'd have to watch the episode tonight on A&E at 10 p.m. to find out.

    First off, the common law 7-year is a myth. And only 16 states recognize it – California is not one of them. Check it out on many websites. And it's only good in those states "if you hold yourself out" to be married – such as telling the community. They didn't. For whatever reasons they stayed together, kids, cash, whatever – it's their business.

    I guess most people are not realizing that not only is Tweed an awesome Mom and always stood by Her Man BUTTTT seems to me that she has also made herself a nice fortune.. Gene has always had a goal in life to do all that he can to take care of his Family financially, the family that Shannon taught how to LOVE!!
    Best wishes!

    Gene appears to be a very nice person and Shannon is just so cute. They seem to have done a great job raising their kids... while it may have all been for the show, I am excited for their family and especially for Shannon. I am totally impressed by these two and their success together. I have been with my husband for 30 years. Married for 26 of those and believe me it hasn't all been a rock concert. I do enjoy this show and wish them all the best and cannot wait for the wedding. Gene is a generous man and best of all a PATRIOT! I love that most about him. Too bad all who come to our country couldn't express their love and appreciation for this GREAT LAND OF OURS like he does. I would love to just hang out with them for a day... they are genuine.

    Tiger & Arnold & Jese James get caught...but a man who sleeps with thousands of women doesn't? He didn't cheat. It is simply a matter of his fame eclipsing hers and her resentment of that. She knowingly or unknowly is using the woman as an excuse. 28 years and NOW it's a problem? ok..sure Joan Rivers, I mean Shannon..sorry the plastic surgery messed w/ me.

      I'm sure he did, but obviously that kind of love wasn't the "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" love. I think this marriage business is to make the relationship official, legal and finally PROVES that he really loves Shannon (aka "Sharon").

    I don"t believe that this season was staged . First of all they have to have loved each other to have raised two beautiful kids who have grown up to be solid grounded individuals. Gene is someone stuck in his ways who refused to change until he had no other choice. He realized he was about to loose the family he couldn't live without. Shannon is a gorgeous women who devoted herself to raising her kids and making a real home life for all of them. Do you think this happened by accident .No it takes is hard work and devotion to achieve that. She is not a gold digger by any means , if that were true she would have been gone ages ago. I think she was ready to stand up for herself and get what she probably wanted from the very beginning. She deserves to be happy and Gene knows this.

    I love how none of you have even mentioned love. People stick around for 28 years out of love. Believe me, there is no other reason in the world to stick around on either person's part. They love each other and they love their children. It's obvious. Love isn't seldom if ever perfect, but it is one of the most powerful forces in the world. Whatever their motivations for airing this on television, I don't believe either of them are that good as actors. There was some powerful stuff on the part of their children as well. To set either person up as a villain is counter-productive. Regardless of what he makes or who he is, he is only human. So is she. So are their kids. Give them the benefit of the doubt and be happy for them at this time. One more American family is working on survival. Simply wish them well while they do.

    You guys are all crazy. It's all a publicity stunt. Even the show is mostly scripted. I walked into Bristol Farms in West Hollywood and they were in there with the crew shooting a scene (Bristol Farms is a high end Grocery Store). They would shoot the scene over and over, like a movie. Sure, they are a long time couple, but a lot of this drama is just to keep interest in the show and for publicity. They've been together for decades, the "walk off" on the talk show sounds very fishy. I don't doubt the marriage proposal is serious, I'm sure they are/will get married, Gene's too old to be sleeping around anyway, and she's been putting up with it for years, they are clearly made for each other.

    Why don't you all grow up! First, forget about looks – do you all look gorgeous? Secondly, this is about a family, perhaps falling apart! Gene already took a polygraph, and has never cheated on Shannon since they have been together. Their kids are awesome, no druggies or alchies there.if any of you would bother to educate yourself, you would know that Shannon is a millionairre in her own right. She was a Playmate for Heff and had been in Hollywood for quite some time before Gene came into the picture. She is still earning her own money even though she has been a stay at home mom for years raising Gene's kids. He is a very educated man. He taught middle school in New York. He has a Bachelors in education. Speaks five different languages fluently and everything he touches turns to gold. In addition, no one can tell me that if they had been Gene's gf all those years that they wouldn't have done exactly what she did...Before you speak hurtful words, you should reallly educate yourself on the subject
    It would be wonderful if they got married. it's been one of the enduring themes of the show. Gene has dealt with a lot of demons, and much soul searching. Good for him. Can you all say the same? Not?
    Yes, marriage is just a piece of paper, but, during this stage of her life, things have changed. It happens to all of us, that are smart enough to admit it. Cheers to them both. Please don't even give a thought of all these negative idiots.Congrats to Gene and Shannon!!! I think Gene is finally ready to settle down!!

    Shannon Tweed is the only woman in the world who could tolerate Gene's huge EGO, she is a strong enough woman to take him on and keep on going. I don't think there is another woman alive who would have stayed 28 years with him if she did not love him; I think fate wanted them to be together. And I believe they truly love each other.
    I'm sure the wedding issue was staged, but who cares. And by the way, how come none of Gene's 'girls' have come forward like Tiger's or Arnold's, kind of makes me think all those other women are just stories.

    Jay: There is no "Common Law" marriage in California, however the state will recognize a common law marriage that was established in another jurisdiction. She might be able to pull a palimony suit (a la Lee Marvin's ex girlfriend) but Marvin's ex DID NOT prevail. I would imagine Gene would just do the honorable thing if they split and pay her an allowance.
    As for whether or not she accepts, I saw last nights proposal and during the "couch conversation" portion of the show, you can see that she is wearing a ring. Personally, I don't think she should accept. Now, she can just walk away. After marriage, leaving is more difficult.

    I would like to say I admire both of you for putting your personal lives for the public. I want to tell you Shannon you have so much most women would be happy to have but do not push for a marriage . You and Gene has devoted 27-28 years to this relationship and you have 2 beautiful young adults. To have a commitment like you want my dear you already have. The trust is what I feel you are truly looking for. Paper is not going to keep Gene faithful. Gene you are about 61-62 what is this you need to grow up u r grown. What you need to say is you will be faithful and mean it. I can see the love you have for each other. With a marriage license will not make you love each other anymore then you do.. It is only paper. You made it this far without the piece of paper then why do you want to take the chance in ruining it . Please think about this. If Gene gives in then the love he has for you will diminish . You knew when you got together that in the line of business he is in you would have freaks wanting him. I will pray for y'all that you come to your senses and stop this foolishness.

Anyway, Shannon was not only a Playmate but a soap opera star (Days Of Our Lives). She has money and her pick of men. Honestly, look at Gene Simmons. Pretty hard on the eyes, even if he is remarkably talented and super-rich. If she was only after money, she would have found a good-looking guy with money. Good luck to those two crazy lovebirds.

    Any one ever heard of Palimony?. After a 28 year relationship and two grown chidren togther, I'm sure the so-called "gold-digger" will get a fair share of the earnings, etc. Personally, I think they love each and their children, who appear to be smart and well adjused. Shannon and Gene seem to make their relatinship work. What goes on hehind the scenes I of course do not know, but after 28 years and no reports of spousal abuse that I can recall, the world does not need to know what goes on in their real lives. "Good wishes in whatever you choose in regards to marriage, whiich seems to have lasted way longer than most marriages that include a ceremony and a piece of paper.

    O.K. think about it. She walked off Behar in June, they probably had already taped the proposal and all that jazz by that time! It was all for publicity to try and buck up an uninteresting reality show. As has been said, Simmons is a businessman and they wanted to come up with a different angle–they thought it was edgy I'm sure. Having said that, they seem like a great family and have done a good job with their kids.

    KISS was fun ... when I was a kid. As an adult, and a bass player, I feel confident stating that Gene Simmons is a lousy musician and a boring sideshow freak. I just wish he'd get back into drugs and overdose ala Amy Winehouse, another poor excuse for a musician. Being rich doesn't make you a good musician ... it just means you're rich. I'd rather make my modest living while being a solid musician than be a public buffoon like Gene Simmons. Can't a bunch of idiot celebrities get together and form a suicide pact, including: Gene Simmons, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, and the entire Kardashian family?

    You guys crack me up! Gene Simmons is such a great dad and a pretty good guy...or so it would seem on television and I don't think he is that great of an actor. He has been with the same woman all of these years and they have created a wonderful family that are not drug addicts or crazy weirdos hitting the clubs for fame. Both kids go to college, seem to respect their parents and are well rounded...most american kids should be so lucky. No gold digger here, just a nice lady who fell in love with a rock and roll guy that is a genius at marketing. Now he's marketing his best asset – his great family!

    Brilliant! Hope you say "yes", Shannon and live a happy life with your lovely family that you created together with Gene. Don't listen to the negative stuff.

      Look, people are complicated. He appears to be a great father. He's also been doing something right to keep Shannon from leaving. He's very bright. But he also has the reputation for being a complete tool who will do anything to make money. He seems to have no respect for women– Teri Gross from NPR said he was the worse interview subject she ever had because he tried to degrade her constantly. It's probably just to keep his image up, but at what price? Treating other people like crap? The show, similarly, is clearly staged, largely for his image. And it's said in the show that he'll do anything to make money too.

    Anyone with any common sense knows this is all staged, he is a great business man and she likes to spend money. She has known for a long time that he sleeps around but stayed with him anyway; she doesn't want to give up the mansion and all the money. You remember her boyfriend Hugh Hefner kicked her out of his over 25 years ago when he found out she was doing coke. Aside from all that I think all the plastic surgery she's had is going against her; she was so pretty once but now starting to look like "The Joker" from Batman

    They seem like a lovely family but most of the stuff on this show looks completely staged. I know if I was having relationship problems I would not want that broadcast to the world. And if she's so upset, why would she continue making appearances with him? I've got a feeling that we won't know Shannon's answer until the beginning of the next season. It will probably be the cliffhanger. Either that or else next season will be about the upcoming wedding. Hard to this all a ploy to make it official and get ratings at the same time? Will they have her say no just to keep the drama going?

    All I know is that Gene Simmons is estimated to be worth $300 million. I've never met him & I'd marry him. She's put in 28 yrs, she would be a fool not to make it official.

      Well, if any of you would bother to educate yourself, you would know that Shannon is a millionairre in her own right. She was a Playmate for Heff and had been in Hollywood for quite some time before Gene came into the picture. She is still earning her own money even though she has been a stay at home mom for years raising Gene's kids. He is a very educated man. He taught middle school in New York. He has a Bachelors in education. Speaks five different languages fluently and everything he touches turns to gold. In addition, no one can tell me that if they had been Gene's gf all those years that they wouldn't have done exactly what she did...Before you speak hurtful words, you should reallly educate yourself on the subject.

      If she wanted to marry him, drop him, and run off with his money, she should have pressured for marriage a long time ago. In community property states (the most generous for spouses), you only get half of a spouse's post-marriage earnings. I could be wrong because there are probably still a lot of tacky KISS shirts being sold, but I'm thinking Gene's income is approaching its post-1975 nadir. Maybe she wants to off Gene and inherit everything?!

    you going to do??? Merry him?? You finally got that ring on your finger, does that make it all better? Once a cheater
    always a cheater!!! Wake up Shannon. Your better than this. He wasn't thinking of you when he was doing her! Let

      Noochie, she's a common law wife, regardless if they get married or not. She can still take him to the cleaners regardless.

      You guys are all morons. The crap about him with all those women is not true, at least not during the time he was with Shannon. The fighting last month was all to promote their reality show, to try to drum up some drama for the audience, as they usually don't have much drama on their show, certainly not as much as other reality shows. As for his age, he's almost 62, and she's about 55, so there's not much difference there. He's proposing now because he finally decided to do something that she wants. What does it matter to any of you why now, or what his hair looks like or what age he acts? He is an extremely famous rock n roll bass player/singer who is also an extremely successful marketing/business man. He has built his family an empire, and I suppose now he realizes that he's not getting any younger and the love of his life deserves her wedding. As far as Tweed being a gold digger, that's ridiculous and you should be ashamed. If she was, she surely would've left him years ago to find a man who was willing to marry, and preferably one that is more than 8 years or so older than she is. Honestly. Do any of you actually use your computers? Have you heard of google? Do you know anything about either one of these people?

      To Bob,
      Please learn correct grammar and punctuation if you are going to comment on someone's spelling. You do NOT begin a sentence with "and". Also, the correct usage is "it's", meaning it is, not just its.

      LOL, grammar nerds – y'all didn't even pick up "must of" instead of "must have", one of my biggest pet grammar peeves.

      Gene Simmons has always cheated in Shannon. However Gene is staying with Shannon because she'll take him to the cleaners if they break up and Shannon's staying because well she's an idiot and loves the ugly guy. Must be his weiner and tongue keeping her with him. Gross guy. I bet he has a venereal disease. I just wish Shannon would cheat on Gene for revenge. Maybe she has!

      I for one wish them the best. Gene has certainly cheated A LOT, but there was a semi-open understanding of this, as there is with a lot of rockers – especially those of his era. What changed was Shannon's willingness to deal with it. I think it will be hard for Gene, he has enjoyed the 70's rock lifestyle since, well, the 70's, but it's obvious he really loves her and he will attempt to do anything to stay with her. Good luck with being a good husband, Gene, and hopefully you can grow old with the love of your life.

      No such animal as "common law wife" in the state of California. Maybe she would have a "palimony" case ala Michelle Triola v. Lee Marvin - but no common law in California period. Any one ever think maybe she really loves the guy - afterall, why would you stay with someone who has aged soooooo badly? Leave them alone. Let them figure it out. Either way, she won't come out of it poor. And, in my opinion, she deserves anything and everything she can get for bearing two (apparently great) kids and hanging in there for all these years.

      I feel "duped". Even though I knew where all this was going, I fell for it. They are such good actors, but to put their kids in the middle for "ratings" is wrong. I was impressed that Gene had lived such a "clean" life on the road and the family seemed to be so "normal", I have less respect for both of them now. Maybe their is some dysfunction after all. Gene loves the money!!!

      You misunderstand. Gene was a male ho prior to Shannon. She knows about his past. Gene has been faithful to Shannon. He has said so, and I for one, believe him.

      Well it's about BLOODY time! For better or worse, they should've been married in the first place, for Pete's sake! "Shacking up" is SO wrong morally. When they did the trailer for the show...I thought if Sharon didn't say yes, she ought to have her head examined. (Which I'm sure some of you are thinking anyway).
      You go, sister!

      I don't think it was "all made up" for the show, but they filmed the worst of it. Any moral-minded woman would've probably have cut his ball off and out (to put it mildly). I'm afraid there are many non-famous women (married or not) that have to deal with this every day and I feel SO sorry for them. Cheating affects the whole family, not just the two involved.

      To Martin – Actually, you can start a sentence with "And" if used correctly. Google it.

      It is MARRY not MERRY. And it is none of your business why she endured what she endured. The bottom line is, you watch and you care.

      How about a spelling lesson?

      'Merry' him? lmfao! I think she has likely 'merried' him repeatedly through the years. What a maroon!
