Gene Simmons Breaks Down at His Father's Grave on 'Family Jewels' (VIDEO)

This week, Shannon Tweed set up a very special surprise on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E). She took Simmons and their son back to his home country of Israel, a place he hadn't been to since he was seven years old.
While there, they got a chance to visit his father's grave, which brought up a whole world of regret for Simmons. Not only had he never visited his father -- though he did send him money -- he barely knew anything about him or the rest of his family.
Simmons broke down in tears as a letter his father had written to him was read at the graveside, thanking him for the money he'd sent and complimenting his children and "woman." He said of Tweed that she must be "one of the most beautiful in the world."
