The eighth season starts with Shannon completely surprised at Gene’s marriage proposal. He asks her after being with her for 29 years. Shannon is overcome with emotion, and said “I would, I would.”
She then accepted the 24 carat ring and said “Yeah, sure.”
Gene and Shannon stop off after the Belize trip in New York to see Gene’s mom to let them know about the engagement. Gene’s mom is a busy bee worrying about the table settings and the soup, etc. It was hilarious. Gene can never just come out and say anything straight it has to be a production.
Gene’s mom is happy.
Sophie and Nick plan a surprise party with close friends and they also surprise their parents with flying in Gene’s fathers children with another mother, brother Kobi, sisters Drora, twins Sharon and Ogenia, the from Israel. I started watching last season when A&E had a marathon one day. I was bawling during the Israel trip, yes I admit it.
Kobi, Gene’s brother painted a picture of their deceased father as a gift for Gene and Shannon.
Gene and Shannon continue with their therapy session, which I believe in totally and think it’s great and healthy for Gene and Shannon to participate in.
Shannon mentions in therapy that in order for her to trust Gene completely he can stop deleting texts and the call log in his phone. Gene is how old? Why is he behaving like horny teenager? Gene also wants a pre-nuptial agreement. Shannon sees that as a plan to divorce. Gene states he think Shannon may leave him. She has stayed with you for 28 years; I think Shannon is in this for the long haul Gene.
Shannon wants to marry before the Nick and Sophie go back to school. Gene wants to wait until the Kiss cruise if over. Stall much Gene?
Gene admits that there are a lot of areas to be worked out.
