After seven seasons, A&E has pulled the plug on the popular reality series ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’. Apparently the KISS Army couldn’t pull together to keep this show afloat.
The show gave an intimate look at the life of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, his now-wife Shannon Tweed, and their kids, Nick and Sophie. It started out strong and remained that way for several years, even pulling in over 3 million viewers for the season 6 finale, but according to Deadline Hollywood, it fizzled with season 7 this summer, dropping to just 1 million.
NBC wants to continue making money off of Donald Trump‘s hair and his “you’re fired” catch phrase. According to the New York Post, the network is hoping to launch not another Celebrity Apprentice, but an All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. Wow…there are a lot of past celebrity apprentices to choose from, no?
Some of the celebs being tossed around to return to the mega-show include former winners Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers and Bret Michaels, as well as Omarosa, Gene Simmons, Lennox Lewis, Meat Loaf, Jesse James, Trace Adkins, and Gary Busey. The Donald is reportedly also considering Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, Marilu Henner, Marlee Matlin, and Dennis Rodman. An insider close to the show says that many other past contestants are clamoring for a gig on the show, although both Trump and NBC have no comment. What, no Teresa Giudice?
WOULD YOU WATCH AN ALL-STAR CELEBRITY APPRENTICE? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE RETURN?
