'Gene Simmons Family Jewels': Shannon's Sister Tracy Offers Her Frozen Embryo

As if Shannon didn't have enough on her mind with this whole adoption thing she's been considering -- not to mention her children trying to mess everything up for her -- her sister, Tracy, took her on an emotional ride this week. Maybe Tracy should have thought about her offer a little more before making it on this week's "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on A&E).

Tracy had frozen an embryo a while back, anticipating that she would be ready to have the baby in the future. Instead, she threw a curveball into Shannon's adoption thoughts when she offered her sister her embryo. Now she could have a baby that she would actually be related to. It was an emotional moment between the sister, but it was also a premature offer for Tracy.

She came back to Shannon later and told her that she'd been having nightmares about her earlier decision, and that she was taking the embryo back. Shannon's reaction in both instances was abject shock. It's heartbreaking for her to think now that this whole embryo diversion turned out to be completely pointless.
