Airing Tonight: “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” Season 7

“Oh Yeah”; “Oooooooooooh Yeah”; “Well alright”; Sorry for using one of Gene Simmons own trademark phrases during a KISS show but the A&E Network’s reality program “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” begins airing its seventh season tonight on the A&E Network. Are you still watching? Have you even started yet? If it’s the latter you best get onto Netflix or something to catch up with the world around you as you are missing out in some key happenings in The Demons life.

The premise largely remains the same as the previous four seasons and in case you are just jumping on board I will avoid any previous season spoilers. I will say that it follows the life and times of Gene Simmons, musician and businessman along with his significant other Shannon Tweed and gives you an inside look into his happenings. It’s pretty fascinating to see what Simmons does to keep his name in the public eye and as I’ve mentioned in a previous season announcement post his kids are actually also a lot of fun as they are well rounded individuals too. Ciao for now my friends, I am once again trying to clear up some space on the tape that I record my shows on during the week so I can fit this on there. I went out A LOT this past week. It happens.

Rating: 4.5/5

Watch out Ozzy Osbourne because here comes Gene Simmons with a reality show about family life of his own and based on the content it is sure to set a higher standard for such a program which is more than your own was ever able to do. Like most of you readers out there I sat through “The Osbournes” reality show every week and was glued to the television for the duration of the series. When I watched this program I was fascinated at how insane life seemed to be in that not so little mansion of theirs in Beverly Hills, California and more surprised at how much the buffoon it made Ozzy to be and how his children seemed so unappreciative of the amazing things that had been put in their lives. In that, I hardly missed it when the show stopped filming. When I heard that Gene Simmons, noted co-founder of KISS, and his family would be doing one of their own my expectation levels rose to greater heights about the kind of show that he would deliver. Lucky for all of us I was on target with this assumption as while he is one of the more worldly of Rock Stars and a definite wunderkind in the realm of business dealings, his family life is quite normal and in tune with most regular people. Yes this is all going on in an opulent mansion as well but the larger sets of circumstances that happen to him are the same that many of us deal with if we are married and have children. The show finds Simmons and long time partner Shannon Tweed (the beautiful Playboy model who he has been with for decades but never officially married) and their two children, Nick and Sophie. The series is interesting because while possessing the wealth that Simmons had earned because of KISS and all his various business dealings, the family is surprisingly well-grounded and the kids are not as spoiled as we found on Ozzy’s show. The level of appreciation that they have for their good fortune is visible. The secret star of the show is actually Nick because he is often seen busting his Father’s chops or helping to set him up in some fashion when he intervenes too much in the way he lives his life or in that of his younger sister Sophie. Simmons of course shows he can do the same as he entrenches himself in their affairs and sometimes has interesting circumstances become the result. The show airs on the A&E Network and given the positive reception has been renewed for a second and third season at the time of this release for the season one boxed set.

For those who are unaware of the premise even after three seasons have run, I can quickly say that it follows the life and times of Gene Simmons, musician and businessman along with his significant other Shannon Tweed and gives you an inside look into his happenings. I’ll admit I am a little bit behind in the program myself but I love it. Of course I’ve been a KISS fan since about 1977 or so and as a former business student I love getting the chance to see what Simmons does to keep his name in the public eye. His kids are actually also a lot of fun as they are well rounded individuals and show no signs of being spoiled by good fortune. I think if you enjoy these kinds of shows that you should find some interest as the show reaches its fourth season. That’s all I have for you right now my friends, its time for me to set the VHS Recorder now in case I cannot stay up from all these shows.
