Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed

Special is the couple who are OK with fighting in public, and if this clip from The Joy Behar Show Wednesday is any indication, Gene Simmons and longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed are en route to becoming the most special couple ever. There to promote the turbulent sixth season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, the pair awkwardly handle questions from Behar. The breaking point comes when Behar asks Simmons about the rumored 5,000 women he's slept with: "How's your back, Gene?" Tweed doesn't like his joking response ("My back is good, my schmeckle not so much") one bit, so she takes off her mic, walks off camera and continues to bicker with him about it. Behar notes this as a sign of just how real the couple's reality show is. And for that, it doubles as terrific promo.
