The following three articles appeared in Star magazine:
Item #1: Pudgy rocker Gene Simmmons sure packs a hefty appetite. The tongue-wagging bass player of KISS was spotted aboard a flight from NY to LA gleefully gorging himself on a chicken entree, two slices of chocolate cake and an ice cream sundae-while flirting with a pretty 20-something flight attendant. Too bad he didn't have the company of another Simmons — Richard, that is!
Item #2: Gene Simmons has an addiction – and we're not talking drugs or alcohol. The KISS frontman likes to have his cake and eat it, too. "I'm thoroughly addicted to sweets," he says. Viennese cakes and babka, a heavy pastry, are his absolute favorites. "The guy who invents cake that tastes like a great Danish and is nonfat is going to be a very rich man," he says.
Item #3: KISS frontman Gene Simmons and longtime love Shannon Tweed were horrified to find an estimated million dollars worth of jewelry missing from their home. Shannon's collection of Edwardian, Victorian and deco antique jewelry, as well as a 26-carat diamond ring Gene gave her, were all gone. Gene told Star he and Shannon have been doing extensive work on his new Beverly Hills house and the place is overrun with construction workers. They've zeroed in on when the valuables were snatched from the vault, and police are hot on the trail. The good news is Gene's book, Kiss and Make-Up, is on the New York Times best-seller list, and Shannon has a new series for WB, Young Person's Guide to Becoming a Rock Star.
