Gene Simmons Family Jewels

I stumbled across the tv show Gene Simmons Family Jewels awhile ago and started DVR-ing it. It is pretty much like "Meet The Osbournes", but with Gene Simmons (of KISS fame) and his family - wife Shannon, ex-Playboy model, and kids Nick and Sophie. Some shows are better than others - I like the ones that seem a little more real and less goofy and/or staged. The kids are great - really funny and down to earth, for the most part. I particularly liked the episode where Nick was rehearsing with his band and Gene kept interrupting - Nick was really embarrassed. Then Gene proceeded to book a show for Nick's band, who had only had minimal rehearsal. In typical over-the-top fashion, Gene advertised the show with an airplane banner ad. Again, Nick - totally embarrassed.

I couldn't find any really great clips on YouTube, but hereyago.

PS: I have a secret crush on Nick! Is that bad? Oops!

I was flicking around channels and came across this show! I only watched about 1 minute of it, but I was very disturbed to discover that I sort of lusted after the son. Nick, I believe you called him.

Um, so me too!

How could HE have come out of THAT!?
