Womanizing KISS star Gene Simmons has finally set a date to marry Shannon Tweed, his long-suffering girlfriend of 28 years, the New York Post reported Friday.

The couple are to wed at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Oct. 1.

Many doubted the pair, who have two grown-up kids, Nick and Sophie, would make it up the aisle after sharp-tongued and spandex-wearing Simmons proposed to Tweed on his A&E reality show, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.”

The show followed their therapy sessions after Simmons’ claim that he has slept with nearly 5,000 women, adding in a later interview, “A lot of them didn’t get a lot of sleep.”

After the proposal was aired, Tweed said there was “slim chance” of them really getting wed.

She told People magazine, “You’re seeing this happy family ... but in my heart, I am dying.”

She added she needed commitment for the relationship to work. Well, now it looks like she might get it with invitations being sent for the wedding.
