Former Playboy Model Of The Year Shannon Tweed and her partner rocker Gene Simmons are appearing on The Doctors on Wednesday in an extremely candid interview and has a video preview.

Shannon, who has lived with Gene for 24 years but never married, revealed publicly for the first time that she went through a breast cancer scare.

In a surprisingly emotional plea, Gene directs a message to men, “The person you care about enough to live with, support and do all this stuff, put pressure on her, make her, (sometimes we all get lax) make her understand her health is every bit as important to you -- to her family as to her.”
