Gene Simmons Shannon Tweed Wedding 100% Real Says Son Nick
So what’s the deal with all of these made-for-TV nuptials? Aren’t weddings supposed to be a private affair tp be witnessed by family and friends, exclusively? Not in reality TV land, where producers want celebrities to share every special moment with millions of reality television fans in the name of ratings surges. We can’t speak for every reality Tv wedding, but in the case of the much overdo I Dos between Kiss bassist Gene Simmons and his longtime love, Shannon Tweed, the couple’s son Nick tells E! News that his famous parents’ wedding was indeed 100% real!
When the E! news cameras caught up with Nick Simmons recently at a Hollywood red carpet event, he had this to say to all of the skeptics who think his parent’s wedding was a publicity stunt and nothing more:
“They got married two days ago, and it’s funny how everyone—not everyone, but a couple people—have surmised that it’s fake…and it’s funny how unfake it is.” Nick Simmons went on to tell E!, “I think just because we allowed them [A&E] to film the ceremony, people think it was some sort of staged thing but my mom [Shannon Tweed] would never allow it. She’s too proud!”
Check out this teaser video clip from Gene Simmons’ and Shannon Tweed’s wedding, which took place at the Bevery Hills Hotel after 28 years together and two children.
