KISS member Gene Simmons, wrote the following on his Web site this weekend:
“A few days ago, Barry Levine and World Wrestling Federation’s STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN came over to pitch me a new reality television show…that would feature Stone Cold and his roommate DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE….More news to follow. Levine, it should be noted, is the famed KISS fotog, who first started with the band in the seventies, went on to do the 96 Reunion fotos…co-produced DETROIT ROCK CITY at New Line Cinema…works at Dark Horse on their comics and movie properties…and is developing a few television and movie projects with me.”
