Gene Simmons And Shannon Tweed: Is It Over? (VIDEO)

Is Gene Simmons' relationship with longtime love Shannon Tweed on the rocks?

It sure looks that way, if you believe what they said during what is surely one of the most awkward (or awkwardly rehearsed?) segments in "The Today Show" history Monday. The couple of 28 years, whose ongoing show "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" premiers Tuesday on A&E, traded jabs about Simmons alleged infidelities; Tweed even told hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford that their relationship has "pretty much unraveled."

"Those last two [years together] were a bitch," Tweed said.

Simmons and Tweed have lived together since 1985 and have two children together--Nicholas and Sophie. Tweed suggested that the pair lasted for nearly three decades for their children's sake.

"My kids are in college, they're cooked," Tweed said. "We held it together until they got to college."
