How tall is Shannon Tweed

Shannon Tweed's Height

5ft 10 (177.8 cm)

American Model, Play mate and Queen of the B-Movies said on Playboy.com "I'm 6' tall and there aren't many men or women who want to stand next to me", and on twitter "Gene is 6'2". I am 6'."

In a 2012 twitter post, she claimed "Dr says my bone density is that of a 25 yr old and I grew an inch and a half?!Is that even possible?", with Gene replying "Amazing. Shannon grew an inch!!! Now, 6'1". And hasn't gained a pound since 2008!!! Work out. Work out. Work out.

In a 1981 playmate datasheet, she described her height as being 5ft 10.

Rob, Do you think Shannon Tweed son Nick Simmons is really 6'7?
Editor Rob
At times he's looked extremely tall, 6ft 6-7 range

Rob would stand next to her, and then we would know!

She actually claimed to have gained 1.5 inches...

Well...Gene Simmons is 6'2" and their son Nick is 6'7" so either way she's tall.

She is definitely tall by Hollywood standards but a barefoot 6'0" woman looks HUGE when wearing high heels.

5'10" is obviously closer to the truth.

i think 5'9 is more accurate Gene has almost 4 inches on her and he is a strong 6'1.

I'm on this site checkin her height, clearly she's tall. I watch the family jewels episodes..her height is obvious, low heels on occation and she's always just a few inches (5?) shorter than Gene. P.S. Sophie is almost as tall as Mom!

Well, bad news, all you scoffers (sp?) are wrong! I am only here because of seeing her with Kelsey Grammer on an episode of Frasier. Given his height (which I looked up and is 6'1") I got curious as to hers. She quite clearly is 5'10". She, in fact, stuck to very low heels throughout the episode. Mystery solved...don't believe me? Watch the Frasier episode called "Scratch my book". 'Nuff Said.

I met Andrew Stevens in person and I'm 5'9" & he was shorter than me by at least 3"-so they must have "helped him look taller" than Tweed in the movie they played together.

Trust me... I am 5' 11" and met Gene, his son Nick, Shannon and Tracy. The only one shorter than me was Nick (who was like 3 - 5 yo at the time). I remember them being very tall. On the "Gene $immons Family Jewels when she's wearing heels she is almost as tall as Gene (who always wear boots)... she's no shorter than 5' 10" - NO WAY!!!

Shannon tweed looks taller because in most of the movies, she has worked with actresses shorter than her. But in some of the movies like "Rowdy Girls", "Victim of Desire" she has worked with taller actresses julie strain like & in these movies shannon tweed is dwarfed by julie strain's height which clearly shows that shannon tweed is not amongst the tall actresses. Julie strain clearly towers over shannon tweed.

I think she's 5'9. Maybe she used to be 5'10. She was in a movie with Andrew Stevens in the early 90s and I don't think she was much taller than him in that. It looke obvious that they were trying to make him look taller next to her.

5 ft 10 is probably more accurate than 6 ft. This is the height imdb has her listed in as well.

Shannon has claimed this for years. She is the longtime partner of Gene Simmons from KISS who claims to be 6-2. Their 16 year old son just hit 6'7", and their daughter is starting to grow too. Maybe Shannon is lying, but those kids do have major height in their genes, and all of it is not from Simmons!

Pish! A short man (around 5'6) standing next to a woman of similar height would always look around 2-3" shorter than her. I think she is flattering herself somewhat. She is around 5'9 but because she weighs some 120lb she looks alot taller. She's probably 6 with heels, if not, then she'd be 6'3 with heels and i think thats hardly likely!

[Editor Rob: I'd never checked the 'truth' of her 6ft claim, but did have a quick look just now and yes she simply does not look near this 6ft...]
