Gene Simmons - Gene Simmons' Wife Had Wedding Shoes For A Decade

Gene Simmons' wife picked out her shoes ten years before her wedding day.

The KISS rocker married former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed after 28 years together on Saturday (01.10.11) and she admitted buying her ivory Rene Caovilla heels in a boutique in Santa Monica a decade before the big day.

She told People that as soon as she saw the shoes in 2001, she thought: "I am going to get married in those some day!"

The couple - who have two children, Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, together - tied the knot with Goel Talasazan wedding bands, made especially for them and Shannon explained how they hold special significance for her.

She said: "My father died when I was 24 so he couldn't be at the wedding, so I melted some of the gold from his wedding ring and put it in two strands representing our two kids."

Meanwhile, Gene - who claims to have slept with 4,800 women and for decades was adamant he would never marry - has revealed why he changed his mind about walking down the aisle.

He told The Sun newspaper: "At 62 it really is time to think about that. Shannon and I have been together 28 years, and she's put up with a lot of crap. I've always been anti-marriage for me until they become mature. As species we don't mature until we're in out 60s.

"The biggest financial pitfall in life is divorce. And the biggest reason for divorce is marriage."
