KISS bassist Gene Simmons struck the right romantic chord when he proposed to his long-time love Shannon Tweed during the season finale of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, and on October 1, 2011 the rock ‘n’ roll romantic will finally wed the former Playboy Playmate of the Year.
Invitations embellished with a caricature of the Simmons clan drawn by son Nick and a playful poem penned by daughter Sophie announced that the happy couple will celebrate their 28-year love story with a wedding at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Fans who vicariously flew to Israel with Simmons aboard El Al Israel Airlines for his heart-tugging trip back in time to his childhood days as Chaim Witz from Haifa and witnessed the reality personality’s proposal on his hit A&E series will get a glimpse at all the pre- “I do” preparations when the new season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels debuts on October 4, 2011.
A look back on the day the pair became betrothed on a beach in Belize:
