FAN PLUNGES FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS
WSAW.com
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

About 600 freezing fundraisers plunged into 34 degree water in only 14 degree weather to raise money for Wisconsin's Special Olympics. With warm hearts they braved the cold conditions. Plungers raised pledges as friends and family paid to see them endure a little pain.

Terry Wiersma, dressed as Gene Simmons, went to defend her polar plunge best costume title. Peel back her rock star facade and she's really playing with a passion for helping the athletes in Wisconsin's Special Olympics.

The plunge raised $106,000 for Wisconsin Special Olympics.

MY GENE SIMMONS TATTOO
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello Gene,

I am a huge fan of yours and I really look up to you and all of your success. I am but just a hair stylist, but one day I hope to be doing hair for big stars like yourself, or even you!

I really just wanted to put a picture on here for you of one of my tattoos that I really want you to see. I am going to post it here and anywhere else I can until you get to see my art! It's not completely finished but it's still amazing!

I am also posting a picture of a friend and I dressed up for school when we had an "80's" day. We had the most out there and best costumes in the school! I love what you do and I want you to never stop! You inspire me to make the best of myself and to do anything I have to, to be successful.

With Love,
Manda

Paul Stanley, founder and front man of the legendary rock band KISS and highly-successful fine artist, and his wife Erin, a Los Angeles attorney, announced today that they are expecting a baby girl in August.

This will be the third child for the legendary Star Child and his wife who married in 2005 and live in Beverly Hills, California with their daughter Sarah Brianna (2), son Colin Michael (4) and son Evan Shane (16) from Stanley’s previous marriage.

“There is nothing greater in life than family, and my accomplishments as a father rank at the top of my successes,” Stanley said. “Erin and I are blessed with our expectation of the addition of another princess to our family and a new member of The KISS Army. I may be 59, but the only rocking chair this rocker is getting ready for is the one for my new baby.”

MY HAND-MADE FIGURINES
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello Gene, Paul, Eric and Tommy,

I ’m a members of the Japanese KISS Army. I often look at photographs of KISS. I introduce the dolls of the KISS that I spent about 1 year to produce. Because it was a small thing, I had a very hard time, but when I was finished entirely, I was very happy! I hope you enjoy them.

Sorry for my broken English.
Keep On Rockin!

MAKEUP SCHOOL CELEBRATES
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
COSMIX School of Makeup Artistry

Part of the curriculum at COSMIX School of Makeup Artistry in Ft. Lauderdale, FL is Kabuki, for which I proposed a personalized KISS-style photo shoot. The teacher (also, a longtime fan) & all the participants had a blast.

KISS has been a driving force in my life ever since I was 10. It was love at first sight! KISS has partied with me when I was up, supported me when I was down, inspired me to walk my walk & never take #*%&^ from anyone.

LONG LIVE THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD... KISS !!!

SENATOR SCOTT BROWN AND

KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

We've got two KISS sightings involving Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown.

First up is a quote taken from Senator Brown's new book, "Against All Odds", which was released yesterday.

"At home, I papered my walls with posters of my basketball heroes and KISS and stared up at Gene Simmons's caked makeup and oversize tongue."

The second sighting is pictured on the left, where the Senator was seen on 60 Minutes last Sunday sporting a KISS Apron!

Last August, Senator Brown and his wife Gail attended KISS' Hottest Show On Earth concert in Boston. Here's a photo of them with the band!
