Back in March, The Shmooze reported that the A&E reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” was coming to Simmons’s native Israel. Now we have a glimpse of what Simmons, the former KISS star, found there.
It seems that he was overcome by regret for his estrangement from his father, Feri Weitz, who left him and his Holocaust-survivor mother when he was a child. During a visit to his father’s grave, Simmons became very emotional. “I am so stupid. Why didn’t I go to see him before he died?” he asked.
