Shannon Tweed’s Provocative Career! My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has Her Nude Photo Shoot With Her Sister!

Celebrating An Icon!

Yes, there are certain Cult Movie Queens who have a career that cross over between mainstream films, exploitation gems, and a dash of TV, music, Modeling and more – and for Shannon Tweed, she has a rock star husband too!

Shannon Tweed was born on March 10, 1957 in St. John’s, Canada. By the time she was 21 years old, she was on her way to becoming a Model and star.

Shannon represented the Ottawa Valley in the 1978 Miss Canada Pageant – and if you can believe it, she came in fourth!

However, fame was soon calling as she was featured in Playboy thanks to a Canadian show that was called “Thrill Of A Lifetime!”

She was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in November 1981 and the Playmate of the Year 1982.

She got her acting start in the TV series “Falcon Crest” in 1982, but it’s her cult films that are what we are here to focus on!

“Hot Dog The Movie!”

This 1984 skiing comedy was 80’s goofy fun, and had some revealing moments with Shannon:

“Meatballs III: Summer Job” in 1986 was more of the same, hurt of course by being a Bill Murray sequel without Bill Murray…

“Cannibal Women In The Avocado Jungle Of Death!”

What a title! Tweed starred in this 1989 film, which was Bill Maher’s feature film debut!

The government hires a feminist at the local university to track down the Piranha Women living in the uncharted Avocado Jungle 

OK, as goofy as you think it would be, it’s fun as well!

Shannon appeared in “Night Visitor” before embarking on a string of “Skinamax” films that were direct-to-video or late night cable erotic thrillers – titles like “Twisted Justice” and “In The Cold Of The Night” were just a few of the erotic thrillers she starred in as the 80’s turned to the 90’s and these “Skinamax” type films were the rage…

Here are a few more – since Tweed was one of the most popular stars of this era…here are just a few of the films:

Ultimately, Tweed amassed more than 100 screen credits – but most fans will love her for her modeling work – especially the provocative Playboy photo shoot she did with her sister in 1991!

Talk about a photo shoot! The two Sisters were a pop culture sensation when they did a shoot together – beautifully done and very erotic as well!

The two sisters were clearly comfortable doing this shoot together, and it helped cement Tweed’s reputation as one of the most Iconic sex kittens in Hollywood!

In 1983, Tweed became involved with KISS Singer Gene Simmons.

In 2005, this is what Shannon had to say about their relationship:

“He opted never to marry. I opted not to bitch about it. I’m not the jealous type.”

Well, even though she had that outlook, ultimately they tied the knot.

Tweed and Simmons married in 2011 – and a great career for the Actress/Model as well!

Her career reminds of this Actress, who also starre din some great 90’s erotic thrillers:

Kay Lenz starred in the terrific erotic thriller “Stripped To Kill” and many other cult gems as well..click here to see more:

Victoria Silvstedt was another Model / Actress who had a great run int he 90’s:

I never met her, but here’s the story of how she came to write me a “wet” note on one of her calendars!

Of course, when it came to a cult movie Queen who was involved with a “bad boy”, look no further than here:

Denise Richards made some wild films and married Charlie Sheen too!

  1. I didn’t watch Falcon Crest, and I have never seen her films, but I certainly remember who she was. A tribute to her ‘marketing’ perhaps. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
