Tonight, if you venture to watch the season finale of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” you will see a very surprising final moment.

While in vacation in Belize, Gene got down on one knee and said, “You’re the only one I love … and you’re the only one I ever will love.”

“It was a mind trip for me. Olivia is two or three years younger than me, so to have her playing my mother was definitely a head trip. I’d just like to point out that [my song] ‘Mother Lover’ is about sexing up someone else’s mother.”

I really didn’t care about myself. I was borderline suicidal. I was like the walking dead; just smoking and drinking and hanging.

If only she’d been able to turn her addictions around, too. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
