Gene Simmons wants to rock and roll all night and party every day, but his woman Shannon Tweed may not be up for the party. In the sixth season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, we find that Tweed gets effing pissed off by Simmon’s womanizing ways and storms off the set of an interview with Joy Behar. Bragging about the number of women you sleep with isn’t exactly something you want to publicly share especially if you are in a serious relationship.
In a recent interview with Parade.com, Simmons talks about his unraveling relationship with Tweed, parenting and much more. We’ve got the highlights from the interview below!
ON HIS ROLLERCOASTER RELATIONSHIP WITH GIRLFRIEND OF 28 YEARS, SHANNON TWEED:
“Well, when you have a cut on your hand, it doesn’t heal overnight. It takes time, and if you don’t take care of it, it gets inflamed. We’re working on it. It’s not easy on the kids, Shannon, or myself.”
ON MEN BEING FROM MARS:
“Men are not reflective. What happened yesterday happened yesterday. We’re in the here and the now. Women are wiser. Women have a 30,000-foot viewpoint. They see the bigger picture, which is why they want to have kids and men don’t. Women want to get married and no man I ever met actually wants to. Women have the ‘Mr. Right’ image, men don’t. There are tons of brides’ magazines, I don’t know of a single husband magazine. We want to be left alone to do whatever we want to do whenever we want to do it without asking anybody. So the hair on our backs rise when the female species says, ‘Where have you been?’ That’s all part of being a kid and immature.”
“We’re very strict. You behave well because you’re not allowed not to. It’s as simple as that. There are no drugs, no booze, and no cigarettes because you’re not allowed to. You don’t talk potty talk because you’re not allowed to. The idea that kids slam the door to their rooms on these TV shows is the height of lunacy. All that dribble that Dr. Spock was mouthing — he was basically farting through his mouth. Negotiating with your children? Absolutely not.”
ON VISITING FORT HOOD IN KILLEEN, TEXAS:
“I’m an immigrant from Israel and my mother is a concentration camp survivor from Nazi, Germany, and America in a very real way saved my mother and my people. Other countries in the world don’t want to hear this, but it’s true. America not only saved the world, but also continues to save the world. Yes, we have allies, but without America, you’d have chaos.”
