Gene Simmons and MLM


During my cardiac rehab I admit that I am watching more television these days. One show that I have picked up on is Gene Simmons Family Jewels on A&E. For those that don't know, it's a reality show that documents the various activities of the Simmons/Tweed household. It took a while but it has grown on me.

The episode last night centered on Gene's recovery from recent cosmetic surgery. Following the suggestions of those around him, he opts to try some holistic alternatives to aid in speeding his recovery. Predictably, several radical treatments are attempted which included a topical salve that included Goji juice. As Shannon Tweed and her sister Tracy are whipping up the miracle cure, the camera zooms to close-up to the contents in the refrigerator. Lo and behold, top shelf - a bottle of Goji juice.

I am certain that the show producers contacted Freelife International about using their Goji product on the show. I can't wait to see how this works it's way into the next product testimonials.

Very cool that it was featured on the show! I just wonder whether it was paid product placement or not as that's a common occurrence these days.

So how are you coming along? How's your rehabilitation doing? Hope things are good and ever-improving.

Shine on,

Hi Aaron,

You may be right about the product placement. It would be a little out of character for Gene Simmons though. With his knowledge and marketing expertise, I doubt that he would promote something that didn't include his name......Gene Simmons Goji Juice....

Rehab is going well. Some days the work load kicks my butt....I guess that's what "naps" are for, right?

Otherwise, I am feeling great and getting stronger. Amazing what an 8-way bypass can do for one's gas mileage.
