Gene Simmons Proposes To Shannon Tweed (A Top Story)
The episode featured a scheme by Gene to take Tweed to Belize for a holiday, while jewelers in Los Angeles are working on creating a custom diamond ring for the occasion. Daughter Sophie helps ensure the ring is sent to Gene via courier before the vacation comes to an end. After a couple of failed attempts to propose – including once in a plane and once atop a Mayan ruin, Simmons sets up a romantic seaside dinner for their final night in the country.
"I come with so much baggage, but you're the only friend I've got," says Simmons, as he begins to state his case. "You're the only one I've ever loved. You're the only one I love and you're the only one I ever will love; I've never said those words to anybody." The rocker then drops to his knees, when Tweed bursts into tears and holds her hands over her mouth as he asks her, "Please marry me." - Watch video here
