GENE SIMMONS TOO BUTCH FOR A&E?
As I understand it, Family Jewels, the show about Gene Simmons, pushover softcore porn star Shannon Tweed, their plagiarizing son Nick, and their daughter Sophie (who, amazingly, I currently can find no ways to insult), is still going strong – but I guess the execs at A&E thought that if one show about a grown man who plays dress-up for a living was a hit, a second would be twice as nice. ‘Cause Blabs is saying that Dee Snider and his family are getting their own A&E reality program, to be called Growing Up Twisted.
I’d be slightly more interested in watching Dee Snider and his clan than Simmons and his brood, if only for the following reasons:
- Dee Snider is not a total embarrassment to the Jews.
- If it’s successful maybe Dee will forget about ever making another movie.
- I need advice about which type of mascara to use for the MetalSucks Mansion Glam Night, and I’m hoping Dee has some good make-up tips.
No word yet on when the show will debut, but I’m sure we’ll be beaten over the head with promotion as soon as it does.
