(CBS/AP) The A&E Network is kissing Gene Simmons and his family goodbye.

The network and the KISS guitarist said that the "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" reality show is ending after seven seasons. Once one of the network's top-rated shows, it has faded over time.

Simmons said that with KISS on tour and his other business commitments, he and his family have decided to move on from the show. It depicted his out-of-makeup life with his colorful family.

A&E said it thanked Simmons and his family for opening up their lives, warts and all, noting, "We could not be more proud of the unparalleled run."

Simmons married his longtime love, Shannon Tweed, in a one-hour special in May.
