The man who claims to have slept with over 4600 women has finally settled down to marry.

Gene Simmons proposed to his long-suffering partner Shannon Tweed in July, following a dramatic incident on TV where Tweed dumped him live on a CNN chat show. It may have been a publicity stunt for their reality TV show which follows their home life much like The Osbournes did with Ozzy's family, but brash comments from Simmons appeared to genuinely upset his partner of 28 years.

The pair patched up their differences and married at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday.

Among the 400 guests where Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher, and of course his fellow Kiss bandmates. Tweed stunned the guests as she entered the ceremony in an ivory white Priscilla Of Boston gown.

The couple's children played a major role in the ceremony, with their son Nick acting as best man and daughter Sophie serving as maid of honour. Sophie also sung the song for their first dance, performing "At Last" by Etta James.

Cynics might think the marriage is yet another ploy for their reality show, but we're pleased to see the couple finally tie the knot. Congratulations Gene!

    Even if she did take half of everything, he would still ave more 10X more money than everyone in this forum combined!

    Oh yeah, I didn't mean to say KISS suck or anything, they're great, he's great, a good businessman and a good bass player and songwriter. But I thought the "no marriage" thing was the one thing he'd hold on to That was like... his personality.

    Gene Simmons, the man is the ultimate troll. He doesn't care that you think he's a sellout, he's probably richer than all UG users combined. Regardless of the man's personality, KISS' music is great fun.

    I dunno, do they have a new run of KISS caskets out? I know they sold out quickly (kinda funny, guess KISS fans know there time is up soon) but I do know that Gene's KISS casket was used to bury some guy named Darrell Abbott dunno if you know who he is

    No matter what you think about the situation itself, this article is what UG news should be about. A neutral-standing news article pertaining to rock n' roll.

    "but we're pleased to see the couple finally tie the knot." Why? Because you can't mind your own business? I mean really, what are you, some kind of marriage Nazi? Personally, I think Shannon threatened a palimony action (which would have little chance of succeeding, btw) and rather than go through the same kind of circus that was the Lee Marvin-Michelle Triola trial, Gene caved and married her. Either that or Gene was a far bigger pussy than he tries to let on.

    after living with someone for 2 years they become common law spouse, basically your wife without marrying them, entitling them to any settlement a wife would have in a divorce

I think he married her for his own reasons not for the shows reasons.
    Well put and true.

    Gene Simmons is ridiculous and if anyone watches that schmuck's show they are ridiculous as well. He is all about making money, thats it. And it shows. Get some new hair...you are ridiculous

    I heard Gene Simmons invented marriage way before it went mainstream .. \m/

    Of course it's a ploy. Would he have married her if he didn't have a show? How many people wait 28 years to get married? 5, yes. 10, sure. Even 15. Twenty eight? You either get married or you don't, if you don't believe in marriage. He obviously didn't, since he went around screwing women. He wasn't married, hence, according to that swine, "it's alright". The fight on tv was a set up and so is this marriage. Gene Simmons is feeling heat from other reality shows and thus must make his life more dramatic. Congratulations, Gene Kardashian.
