Gene Simmons Gets Married ... for His Reality-TV Show

KISS bassist and aspiring Anonymous hacker mentor Gene Simmons has finally married his girlfriend of 28 years, former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed, saying it was finally time "to grow up." The lavish Beverly Hills affair, attended by fellow stand-up monogamist Hugh Hefner and 399 other guests, will be aired as a special episode of A&E's Simmons' Family Jewels. Which, really, if you think about it, is such a classy broadcast venue for sharing your nuptials with the world. Certainly doesn't evoke any unwanted visuals of the rocker's aging genitals, or any such thing. [Us]
