Meanwhile back in California something crazy is going on. According to a little birdy, his girlfriend, the lovely Shannon Tweed clicked on the TMZ and saw Genie Gene cavorting with some young ladies probably born in the 90s. Doggone it. What happened after that was some gripping reality TV drama. Between you and me, I think the TMZ clip was a ruse. I think Shannon Tweed got some more hard evidence of Gene's just "hanging out" with women. Big shock huh, he's been doing that since always...
What was interesting is how his family reacted to Gene being a dirty, lying, cheating snake in the grass. Unlike a lot of "scripted" reality dramas, we saw the family's disappointment on their faces. It was palpable--and that's very interesting. While some people said it was fake, I don't this so, really. I've seen all of Shannon's episodes on 1st and Ten and she's not that good of an actress. Really no one is. And you know what? I'm very cynical and hate mostly everything but seeing this kind of familial disarray was oddly upsetting to me.
Grade *** 1/2
An Update: Here's a recent clip, looks like they're doing good!
