Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, like ALL couples, have their share of disagreements, past hurts, and life baggage that affect the health of their relationship. As a last-straw effort to save theirs, Gene & Shannon enrolled in The Marriage Boot Camp where Jim Carroll and David Bishop ran them both through a series of drills and exercises that pushed them to the limits. The experience was intense for all involved; there were even times when Gene nearly took a swing at Jim during confrontational drills. In the end, Gene and Shannon’s lives were changed for the best. This all occurred on A&E’s Gene Simmons Family Jewels, so you can see a lot of the action by watching the episode for yourself.
