Casual Remark by Shannon Tweed Sparks Attack of the Groupies

Sometimes, great ideas arise from simple, casual conversation. Case in point: the new iPhone-iPad game Attack of the Groupies.

Per an article in St. John’s, Newfoundland paper The Telegram, when Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed attended the Atlantic Brand Confabulation event there last year, they met Gogii Games president George Donovan. The company, based in Moncton, New Brunswick, has created titles such as Escape the Museum and Princess Isabella: A Witch’s Curse.

Donovan asked Mrs. Tweed-Simmons if she had ever thought about doing a video game:

“I’d played some of those games on my phone as a way to waste time, but that’s it,” Tweed-Simmons told The Telegram. “He said, ‘You should do one,’ and I said, ‘Like what — ‘Attack of the Groupies’ or something? He said, ‘That’s a great idea.’”
The game features an animated Tweed-Simmons fighting off hordes of crazed female groupies intent on getting their hands on her man.

Shannon Tweed Lets It All Hang Out in Her Native Newfoundland

What could have possibly been one of the best episodes of A&E’s reality show hit Gene Simmons Family Jewels has instead taken the form of a saucy interview in the pages of Newfoundland daily The Telegram.

Shannon Tweed is back in her native Canadian province for the first time since 1982 (!) to film a guest appearance on the CBC-TV show Republic of Doyle. Gene Simmons is there with her through the end of the week, but because the kids remain back in LA, no A&E camera crews are tagging along. The former Playboy playmate says she does not give a hoot about the “f*cking complainers” (viewers who claim her reality dramas are staged), and has this to say about the current state of her rocky relationship with Simmons:

“I wish someone had let me know it was an open relationship. If I’d have known, I’d have been doing the same thing, but he didn’t let me in on the secret. That’s what makes me the angriest.”

Lights! Camera! Glamour! The Photography of George Hurrell

The show, curated by Louis F. D’Elia (seen with Hurrell’s boom) features the cream of Hurrell’s work, from his earliest shots through his contact years at MGM, and ending with nudes of Shannon Tweed and Joan Collins.

The catalogue’s introduction was written by Virginia Postrel, who’s writing a new book on glamour, a subject she owns.
