'Gene Simmons Family Jewels': Gene proposes on the season finale, but will Shannon accept?
The season finale of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” is tonight (10 p.m. on A&E) and the network has already released a wowza preview: Gene Simmons, humbled by the events of the season, actually vows his devotion to his “girlfriend” of the last 25 years Shannon Tweed and, wait for it… proposes. It’s a little disconcerting to see the rock god who has staked his reputation on screwing around and keeping his options open staring at Tweed, equal parts fear and longing in his eyes, as he takes a knee and finally acts like a grown-up at the tender age of 61.
Still, I’m not sure this happy ending, if it is a happy ending, will stick. Hey, I hope they live happily ever after. That was their shared wish at the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, each of them tucking their mirrored hopes into the wall. They are, in their way, a cute couple. But I have to wonder if, after two decades spent on tenterhooks, if Tweed, once she can finally take a breath, a hard won ring on her finger, might wonder if it's enough.
