Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed's wedding was the real deal, and 100 percent not drummed up for their reality show ratings. That's according to their son, Nick.
The 22-year-old claims he's not surprised by the rumors it was faked, admitting that "My dad does tend to wear his shameless capitalism on his sleeve."
However, Nick Simmons adds, "I was there when the cameras weren't. My parents went through a dark period and came out still wanting to be together."
Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed married earlier this month after a whopping 28 years of dating and two children together. The nuptials will, of course, air as part of a VERY special episode of A&E's Gene Simmons' Family Jewels.
Nick added, "I can say is that my mother has the patience of a saint."
It also gave Nick the chance to wear this awesome shirt.
