    EWWWWWW!! yuck!

    Umm…he’s in an open relationship. Who cares??

  4. Nancy • February 21, 2008 @ 1:19 PM

    He has admitted yesterday on his website that the tape is from his past and that the appropriate legal action is currently being taken. These sex tapes are not a big deal anymore. Thank god his kids are old enough to laugh it off! Hey, Gene is always looking for a new business venture……Bikini Car Wash; selling bull semen, etc., so why not sex tapes? Now he just needs his lawyer to sue and go after the revenue from this tape.

    To Anonymous above: Gene may not be a looker, and I am about 99.9% sure that all of the women he has been with were not with him for his looks! Some were with him for his fame and fortune but mostly, I would say his tongue is what attracts!!

  5. KISSfan • February 21, 2008 @ 2:00 PM

    Gene Simmons is the man! If anyone can have a hard core sex tape @ 58, it’s him!

  6. tributegirl • February 21, 2008 @ 2:54 PM

    Exactly, Nancy! His money is quite attractive, but that tongue, apparently there ain’t nuttin’ like it!
    Everyone’s got sex tapes these days, it’s no shocker anymore. The only way it would be shocking is if the blonde model was a man.

    first of all gene is not in an open relationship, he is happily unmarried and has been to the same woman for close to 20 years. She is aware of all of his past sexcapades and if this is supposidly a new sex tape the first person who should be upset is shannon and the two kids. i hope for their sake this is an old tape and that all legal action is taken so that this tape is taken off the internet and that it doesnt effect his relationship with his family.

    Paul Stanley, not Simmons, is the band’s frontman.

    Nancy and Tribute Girl. If you keep those comments up we will have to limit Tribute on line after 10 pm!

    Anyway Gene Simmons never really cared about what people thought. Did you know he launched Van Halen in the 70’s?

  11. Bernie • February 21, 2008 @ 8:14 PM

    It’s not fair to blame KISS for Van Halen.

  12. Poppa John • February 21, 2008 @ 8:23 PM

    BLAME kiss for Van Halen? what are you Bernie, a dance fruitcake? Man, Your whole family must be disappointed in you.

  13. Nancy • February 21, 2008 @ 11:57 PM

    LOL Poppa John!
    Hannah: Gene Simmons is definitely NOT gay!!
    Anonymous: Technically….yes, Paul Stanley is the frontman of KISS….BUT….Gene wrote and did lead vocals as well. He was, and still is, the most popular member of KISS!! As for Mariah Carey….her legs are probably plastic like the rest of her!!

  15. Gene's Da Bomb • February 22, 2008 @ 7:15 AM

    I find it pretty amazing that even some youngsters care about Kiss and/or Gene Simmons. It was in the 70’s when I was in Graphic Arts in junior high that friends and fellow students made a comment that KISS was GAY and my silk screening of the group’s logos etc. was gay too. Unbelievable that people young and old still care enough to slam such a group and I’ve often commented over the years that even 15 year olds today will start listening to this still-happening group. What’s this say about longevity? Over 30 years now and I often pop-in a CD and listen to deafening levels of Detroit Rock City and FYI, soon enough there’ll be some movie on the horizon that’ll utilize this groups awesome rock songs. Also another FYI, I was never into extremely heavy/raunchy metal music but you know what, this groups really kicks butt.

    When you hear about groups like this and their stars who never seem to really vanish now do they, is says a lot about LONGEVITY! If Gene or Paul etal had some sort of scandal once in awhile, very few are shocked or surprised or remotely concerned. When morons like Spears or Hilton or Richie hit the news or idiot Ledger is mentioned, people are shocked. None of these ones ever had as much popularity as say KISS and I doubt if many of us will give a crap in 30-40 years. KISS might still be talked about then, when all members are passed on.

    And to the little twit who thinks 58 is “ewww, gross!” ha-ha, Hef’s still got it and he’s what now, 80 or close to it?

    I wanna rock and roll all nite and party EVERYDAY still makes little teeny-boppers move now don’t it….

    Young girls should take a look at a guy like Tom Jones and I’d win this bet everytime, teenage girls at a concert of his would be stunned when their same-aged friends would swoon (yes, I used a really old term, so what) just as older/mature ladies/women would too. The guy’s happily married and has forever been faithful and when some of you little brats grow up, maybe you’ll understand what maturity really means. And if Gene’s so old, gross, hideous etc., do you really think it’s just the money that women or girls would find attractive? Ha-ha, you are SO wrong, like TOTALLY fer sure LOL

    Shannon Tweed was no angel herself. Let’s not forget all the “soft porn” movies she made as well as posing nude in Playboy…I’m sure she;s seen her share of other men’s tongues…and things…

    You are right about both Gene and Shannon’s past. They both have put it out there and so because of who they are they are always in peoples mind to find the gossip or scandal. Gret overit already people they are no different than you and I except they have a hell of alot more money and happen to have fallen into careers that made them well known to all! Get on with life and stop worrying about what these people are doing! We the average joe and the press make more out of this crap than it is worth. This all to sell papers or make everyone jump on the internet to read the gossip…such small minded & stupid people we have become. And chances are it could be fake or blown way out of context of what it really is. Brittany and Paris are just a bunch of blonde losers with a pack of idiots falling at their feet! GROW UP PEOPLE! Get a life and stop getting caught up in crap!

    I admire the genius of Mr. Simmons.
    58 years young and still putting out.
    its no wonder he has been so sucessful after KISS!
    As for being 58.. I will be 50 in December and I am happy to say I look and feel like 30.
    Gene must be at the new 38. There are many benefits to that as well; such as we not only look and feel great; we have the experience, brains and some of us the money to go with it.
    We got er all baby…come and get some!

  24. Sandy • February 22, 2008 @ 9:41 AM

    I’m 58 years old and recently started watching the show. They seem like great parents, they shelter their kids and are up front with them. Gene forget the gossip and continue to be the man I see on your show. It makes me laugh and I enjoy your whole show.

  25. Kiss Fan • February 22, 2008 @ 9:48 AM

    Gene Simmons, should keep his tongue in his mouth!!!!!

    He may be rich & famous, but even with his recent facelift(s), he is anything but “good looking”!

  26. MINNIE • February 22, 2008 @ 10:33 AM

    Love Gene, Shannon and family. The love they show on tv is refreshing and the bond the kids have with the parents is so open, we all wish we had it. (I know I do. )
    I agree if anyone should be worried about this tape, is Shannon, none of anyones business.
    And kids” old people have sex to you ‘ Your time will come lol.

  27. Anne • February 22, 2008 @ 11:02 AM

    First……..the said “model” wouldn’t kiss him (the obvious trade mark of a pro), second I think his tongue is the biggest “organ” on his body and third……..its just wrong hahaah

    I don’t think it was old, it look like current day nipped and tucked Gene to me.

    I’m just sorry I watched it as it kinda burned me corneas!!! 🙂

    Gene’s the man !

    It’s probably not him, but even if it is him, who really cares? He still seems like a good dad and a decent person. I still love him !

  30. Jackie • February 22, 2008 @ 12:46 PM

    Genes Da Bomb, I agreed with “almost” everything you said its incredible that people are still listening to all the stuff we did back in the 70’s. But brinigng a young actors death into it was disgusting and completely ruined your credibility Heath Ledger was someones son, brother, friend and dad. That is just plain meanspirited and wrong freedom of speech or not.

  31. gingah • February 22, 2008 @ 12:51 PM

    well,gene you have alot of fans!!(myself included),one thing you and shannon have is an open and honest relationship. most men lie about their infidelities,but gene has always been upfront and honest with his man-whorism.and that is a man with integrity. i would not be surprised if shannon already knew about the tape. the kids know their parents both love them ,that is all that i love the show!!

  32. Max • February 22, 2008 @ 1:04 PM

    Why is this news? It seems that everyone, to get some form of Hollywood street cred, has to has a sex tape:

    1) Martin Sheen
    2) Pamela and Tommy Lee
    3) Paris Hilton
    4) R. Kelly

    The list goes on and on. Could it be that this is just formula for a “run-of-the-mill” publicity attempt rather than being actually shocking?

    Oh and if anyone thinks Gene Simmons is EW, YUKKO or Gross, you try working 20 lbs. of make up and 1 foot platform boots at his age and see if girls toss their panties at you!

    If still ya got, flaunt it.

    Plus all of those who say EW to him probably are all at XXX Video Stores renting “Granny’s Gotta Get It” or “Granny’s Lusty Weekend”.

    EW! Indeed.

    Gene may not be the sexiest man on the planet but I think it is pretty shallow for those women here who’ve commented on how unnatractive he is, beauty comes within more than anything. I would rather date an average looking sweetheart who treats me well than a drop dead model who thinks only of himself and couldn’t care less about you.

  36. Susan • February 22, 2008 @ 4:14 PM

    Who cares! If it does not bug Sharon, does it matter? If it does bug Sharon, does it matter? If it is true, I think Gene, Sharon, Nick, and Sophie have to pull together and figure out what to do and how to handle this as a family. It is true, then the only ones it effects is their family, and their family alone, whether anyone likes it or not. Sharon is a smart woman, and those kids are surely going to be embarrassed enough as it is, (including Sharon). Let this family deal with this, for Sharon, Nick and Sophie will have enough on their plate, and do not need to be put through the publicity wringer anymare than what they already have been. Gene needs to grow up, and start being an adult like his kids already are.

  37. laughing all the way! • February 22, 2008 @ 5:27 PM

    I’m laughing at the 50-year-old who thinks he/she looks like a 30-year-old. How do you spell d-e-l-u-s-i-o-n-a-l?????

    That’s too hilarious. I’m 44 and look good for my age, but I’d NEVER make a stupid statement that I look 20 years younger.

    But I digress … back to the topic … Gene and Shannon are adults and more than capable of dealing with whatever this is. She’s a Newfoundlander, like me, and all us gals from the Rock can handle ourselves in both good times and bad. No wimps here!

  40. Nancy • February 22, 2008 @ 7:36 PM

    Susan: Sharon…is OZZY’s wife!! Shannon on the other hand, is Gene’s partner.

    Lorna: “and Shannon deserves better.” WTF?? She is not being held captive! She is a big girl and can take care of herself. She absolutely has a great life! Gene gives her everything…..except for a piece of paper. He made it quite clear when they first met that he would not get married. Shannon knows that Gene is not faithful!! Why do you think he will not marry her?? Some people actually take vows VERY seriously and if they know for sure that they can’t keep them…then they are best NOT TO MAKE OR TAKE THEM!!! He openly admits on his show that he has slept with over 4,000 women…..he has also been with Shannon for over twenty years… do the math!! She knows he’s unfaithful and yes, probably deep down it p*sses her off, but she loves him and knows he loves her too…he just won’t get married.

  41. Cruz • February 22, 2008 @ 7:57 PM

    Here’s laughing back to you Nufie.
    Been to the “ROCK” and have many friends from the “ROCK”. It’s a shame though that so many men from there look 44 when they are only 20. I am not sure if it is because of kissing their cod, or too many dark and dirty’s afterward to get the tast out of their mouth.I like the women there as they get so
    _ _ _ _ _ when a mainlander comes to town.
    It must be nice to have someone attracted to them that doesn’t seem so…fishy!

  42. Poppa John • February 22, 2008 @ 8:31 PM

    Hey Cruz,

    I doubt that anyone from the rock would have such an idiot for a friend. I doubt you look 30 while you are 50 years old. Men smelling like fish? You are just a typical idiot who doesn’t even know that Native Newfoundlanders do NOT kiss the cod in ANY ceremony. It is reserved especially for Non-Newfoundlanders to “screech” them in. I do not know how they missed you with the cod on your trip there, because we really get a kick out of getting a stupid idiot such as yourself to kiss a wet fish. But I guess being 50 years old with all of that money and feeling like you are 30 really compels you to make statements rife with ignorance. You are rich on ignorance and young on brains. I hope I’ve cleared that up for you.

  43. Cruz • February 22, 2008 @ 8:54 PM

    Yeah. It’s a “type fish restaurant”. Whatever that means in your broken english. I just get a kick out of people who claim to have all these Newfie friends, and then make these derrogative uneducated comments. Rock on , Cruz!! Me proud of you!!!

    she’s spent time in a variety of canadian cities but she’s newfie born!

    you must be mistaking her for that other big-boobed blonde ditz pamela anderson who was born at the other end of the country in ladysmith, bc (northwest of victoria).

I used to work for shannon”s brother and met her once with out even knowing she was the same shannon that is the celb. He of course told me after and i was thinking he was just name droppin cause he could .. oiy i felt silly after when i found out it was true.. Shw seemed to be a very real and sensible person at the time and i hope they can keep to that attitude in this situation .. good luck to them all

    He can have all the face lifts he wants, dye his hair a few more times etc. No matter what he does, he can’t do anything about the ick-factor surrounding him.

    I wouldn’t feel sorry for Shannon. She got what she wanted…. money, money, money…. and no one can spend it like her. No wonder he is so “out there” to get money…. he needs a ton of it to keep up with her !!

  61. Nancy • February 25, 2008 @ 5:16 PM

    Well, I’ve seen pretty much every episode of their reality show and, she doesn’t spend all that much money that I have seen of. Gene doesn’t seem to mind! Don’t forget….she makes money too! All these other Hollywood stars spend way more than Shannon does. Hell, Britney probably spends more on gas, McDonalds and cigarettes than Shannon spends. Not only that, he won’t marry her so, his credit card sort of…keeps the peace!! LOL

    hello gene simmons this is in edmonton. i just want to thank you for the comment you said on the air of your family jewel show. the part when you were sitting around the dinner table and then you said “hi pretty ignorant of ron” i am the guy from edmonton who sent you that letter to your beverly hills gene simmons records address about buklshit gay rumours. i was into kiss as a kid. my first album was kiss double platinum and then others that followed including the priceless collection. i wish i could do in all the hot women you have in your life. as a matter of fact i am just the opposite of you because i have been deprived of that part of life for ten to thirteen years now and i was voted a seven out of ten in looks that is. if you can say hello to chris on the air from your show or on the apprentice. thanks gene.

    p.s. i bought the kissology dvd set vol#2 and it was slick i am impressed. i saw kiss twice live in edmonton as well as two kiss cover bands called hotter than hell and black diamond. i spoke to the gene simmons dude after the show in person face to face with his demon costume on and i told him i went out for dinner with maurice white the lead singer of earth wind and fire down in la and he told me the music industry was small and that he has been aquainted with you the real gene simmmons. cool huh small world. i have also done the cabo wabo not the cobo hall wabo but the one down in mexico with sammy hagar the red rocker. if you lke send me an e-mail to chow gene simmons.

    p.s.s shannon and her sister are hot. i wish i could find myself between the sheets with her. have a nice life dude as i can imagine you will. KISS KICKS ASS BIG TIME JUST LIKE VAN HALEN.

    Gene Simmons has been with Shannon Tweed for over 23 years. The sex tape is not over 23 years old. He cheated. She is still with him. They are a great couple & am glad they could work it out.
