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.
Police attempted to revive him when his body was found, but before that fatal moment, he had been complaining of stomach issues for about two days. There were no obvious signs of injury when he was found, but a friend had allegedly commented that he was covered in vomit when he was found, leading some to believe he choked on his own vomit.
Police also report that no drugs were found at the scene of the death, but it had also been reported Ryan had been partying hard with friends the night before. He had also allegedly told one friend that he was taking "some pills."
Officials are now waiting on toxicology results to get further information.
We hope his friends and family get some closure with this sad passing.
