Gene Simmons returns for an all-new season of A&E’s hit series ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels,’ with a special one-hour episode on Monday, May 28 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. The longest running celebrity family-based series on television (now in season 7), begins with a shocking moment for America’s most traditional, non-traditional family. After going through their most tumultuous year of their 28-year history, Gene and Shannon finally tied the knot. However, that doesn’t mean all their troubles have magically gone away.
In what promises to be the most explosive season ever, Shannon decides she wants to adopt a child, and the entire family battles over her decision. Gene, Nick and Sophie are against the adoption, and for the first time in her life, Sophie is at drastic odds with her mother. Meanwhile, Gene is trying to learn to be a better husband but is still battling with his rock-star ways as Nick is striving to emulate his father’s good qualities, yet finding it hard to avoid the bad ones. From the family’s adoption battle, to Gene and Shannon’s honeymoon in Africa (where Shannon has an ulterior motive planned), to Gene on tour for the first time as a married man, fans will have an all-access pass as America’s favorite rock family unfolds personal layers of their lives that they have yet to reveal.
Last season ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’ had its most watched season ever, with an average of 1.8 million total viewers per premiere episode with Gene and Shannon’s engagement and wedding episodes representing the #1 and #2 telecasts ever for the series.

Here’s a recent CNN Money video report on Gene and the addition of KISS Monster Mini Golf in Las Vegas to the KISS empire:
While we’re on the golf kick, here’s a photo of guitarist Tommy Thayer with none other than Olympic and sport icons Sugar Ray Leonard and Bruce Jenner at the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic on Monday (May 7) at Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake, CA. The Golf Classic supports the George Lopez Foundation.
