Gene Simmons on marriage: I'll do my best to be faithful
After 28 years together, rocker Gene Simmons and partner Shannon Tweed will finally say their “I dos” this weekend, but if fans of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” think that means the on-screen drama is over for the couple, think again.
In a preview clip for the upcoming season of the show, Simmons and Tweed can be seen discussing their problems, despite having wedding bells on the way.
“He doesn’t promise to be faithful to me," Tweed complained.
“I will do my best,” was all that Simmons had to say about that.
But Simmons showed his softer side in a recent interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”
“It is time for me to grow up,” he admitted. “I’m 62. I’ve been doing a lot of wacky stuff for an awfully long time — the band, the thing, traveling around the world and all that. There’s nobody I’ve ever loved. There’s nobody I’ve ever said ‘I love you’ to. I even find it difficult to say ‘I love you’ to my mother, but I love Shannon with all my heart and all my soul and always will.”
The new wedding-centric season of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” kicks off on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET on A&E.
