Smooth move, Gene!

Last night’s sixth-season finale of Gene Simmons' reality show Family Jewels was quite a doozey. Gene proposed to Shannon Tweed … and then it cuts to BLACK! Dun, dun, DUN!

But even without Shannon's answer, people still tuned in in droves! It was the most-watched episode of the franchise with 3 million viewers and the highest-rated ever with 1.7 million viewers in adults 18-49. Now those 3 million people have to wait just over a month to hear if Shannon said yes or not.

SPOILER ALERT - She says yes!

    Stunt…no Perez everything you do is a stunt…pink green purple hair. retarded outfits…Gene and Shannon have been together for 28 years as pointed out. He has baggage but he did this for Shannon, they love each other. Most women would have not put up with this behavior or waited this long for a proposal if it wasn't real love. She deserves a little more credit than they did it for ratings…they don't need a tv to live the lifestyle. For unlike many others they didn't need a reality show for money or fame. They had both.

    I wish she said no. She deserves better. He hurt his wife, daughter and son. I saw his daughter who is so young express to her dad what he an older adult should have known. No matter what Shannon says, they or she did a good job as a parents. Their kids are amazing.

    I think the whole fighting and wedding thing has been done for ratings. However, the recent shows of Gene meeting his family in Israel, and the one last season where they go to the Ann Frank house in Amsterdam have been excellent. Those emotions are not faked. And it highlights what an amazing lifestories Gene and his mother have. I also love Gene's patriotism.

    Gene is an egotistical JERK! I like the show for Shannon, Nick & Sophie. Good job raising those 2 to be what seems to me like well rounded, not stuck on theirselves young adults.

    I heard she caught him screwing around since then and has moved out of the house permanently.

    I believe she said yes because I saw that she was wearing a huge diamond while they were talking. I don't think she will say no, she been with him for 28 years!

    I don't believe he will ever marry her.. its publicity.

    No matter what you think of Gene Simmons, &*^%, resurrection of Kiss, etc., he's a smart businessman and knows how to work TV. Just like he's pimped Kiss gear all these years. I can appreciate him and yes he definitely knows the game. Keep getting the $crilla Gene!

    Is that really true? After all those years together, they split up?

    Whatever happens, the last few shows were riveting, extremely well done, and excellent t.v. I don't usually bother with reality, if this actually is. I like their family very much overall. I hope they make it.

    I love this show!!! Good for them! I'm happy he finally proposed! :)

    Get off the stage, Simmons. You're 15 minutes of fame should have been over hours ago. How much mileage can you suck off of that shitty KISS band anyway?
    And Shannon Tweed is waaaaaay too good for some narcissistic ass like you.

    with gene, it's always a publicity stunt. you think he cares about a piece of ass?
    he's sold out kiss so many times it's ridiculous. they cashed in on their "Farewell Tour" over 10 years ago, and now they're still touring with a fake ace and a fake peter.
    and this playboy pet of the month? PAHLEEZ!!! she's all about the money.
    watch gene cheat on her again, and she'll get a diamond bracelet to go along with that diamond ring.
