Kiss star Paul Stanley refused to appear on bandmate Gene Simmons' long-running reality Tv show because he hated the programme.

The rocker tells the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine that he received many requests to join his friend on Tv during Gene Simmons Family Jewels' run, but always turned him down.

He says, "It wasn't reality. To create a life that isn't accurate and for me to be a part of it, or to help you promote something that I think is questionable... and, quite honestly, waste my time...?

"You're missing out on living a real life if you're filming a fake one."
