Gene Simmons remains coy about possible Shannon Tweed wedding (Video)
Gene Simmons remains coy about whether longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed agreed to marry him after he proposed earlier this year.
The 61-year-old KISS rocker's proposal in Belize was seen on the season 6 finale of the pair's A&E reality show "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," which aired on July 26. The episode was taped several months ago.
"Isn't it a nice day today?" Simmons told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Rachel Smith at the Do Something Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend, when asked if he got his teeth fixed for his wedding.
"Oh, for Kardashian's wedding," quipped his and Tweed's 22-year-old son, Nick, referring to E! reality star and socialiate's Kim Kardashian's upcoming nuptials, set to take place on August 20.
Simmons and Tweed, a 54-year-old former Playboy Playmate and actress, have been together for at least 28 years and also have an 18-year-old daughter named Sophie.
On the finale of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," Simmons gets down on one knee on a pier and asks a tearful Tweed to marry him. Her answer was not shown.
Tweed later posted Twitter messages about the episode, saying: "I love you all!!! See you in the fall!!!! Trust me. It was the hardest decision I ever had to make. My whole life flashed before my eyes. Did you see how long I stood there? Mind racing.."
Tweed said on the season premiere of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," which aired in June, that she was tired of Simmons' "wandering eye." The rocker has famously claimed to have bedded some 5,000 women.
The two bickered during an interview with Joy Behar on her HLN show that month and Tweed was seen storming out.
