Hottest TV and reality TV stories of the week

June 17, 2011 at 7:30 PM ET

Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons' interview on "Kathie Lee and Hoda" was intensely awkward -- and readers couldn't get enough.

Don't be left out of the conversation. Catch up on the hottest stories of the week before you head off to various parties, barbecues and happy hours this weekend!

The most popular story this week with TODAY.com and msnbc.com readers was by far the status of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed's relationship. We kicked off the week with a super frosty appearance by the pair on "Kathie Lee and Hoda" Monday to promote the new season of their A&E reality show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels." The show premiered Tuesday night, and the morning after, readers were abuzz on this very blog about whether Shannon walking out on the Kiss rocker was faked for TV or the real deal.

Another hot topic? "Teen Mom," which also happens to be a show you guys love to hate -- and yet can never get enough of. Amber Portwood's latest troubles proved to be yet another train wreck readers couldn't resist. This time, the 21-year-old landed herself in the ER after a reported suicide attempt on Tuesday. She was finally released from the hospital today, and multiple sources told Star magazine that she was held for a 72-hour psych evaluation. Stay tuned for more, I'm sure.

And of course, Charlie Sheen continues to make news -- sort of. This time, he wasn't going off the rails. Instead, the story that caught readers' eyes was when Sheen's former "Two and a Half Men" co-star Jon Cryer said he had no idea what the future holds for the hit sitcom.
