Phoenix Press/Simmons Books will release a long-awaited autobiography from Shannon Tweed this August. Packed with never-before-seen photographs, Kiss and Tell is the candid story of one of the world’s most beautiful women. One of the best-known Playboy pinups ever, busy actress, and working mother, Shannon tells the story of her life from rural Canada to raising two children with a rock star in Beverly Hills in her own straightforward, no-holds-barred style. KISS star Gene Simmons, with whom she has happily cohabitated with for more than twenty years, penned the foreword.

Kiss And Tell

Shannon Tweed was raised on a mink farm in Newfoundland, Canada with six brothers and sisters, moved to Los Angeles at age 24 when she was named Playmate of the Year, and lived for a time with Hugh Hefner in the Playboy Mansion. She soon became a very successful actress, starring in countless movies and various television shows. She met Gene at a Midsummer Night’s Dream party and still lives with him today, along with their two children, Nick and Sophie. Shannon will appear this summer on GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS, a reality series on A&E.

Phoenix Press/Simmons Books will release the updated paperback version of Gene Simmons’ bestseller SEX MONEY KISS in conjunction with KISS AND TELL in August of 2006. Watch for both titles.
