NEW YORK — Kiss frontman Gene Simmons held court at Cindy Adams‘ exquisite Park Avenue penthouse during a Thursday-night party to promote his new philosophical tract, “Sex Money Kiss.”
“There’s no substitute for hard work, and women are on crack and should stop torturing us” is the book’s thesis, Simmons told onlookers in a room wallpapered with Adams’ New York Post gossip columns. “What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander. Women are from Mars, men have penis.”
Simmons spotted a young, pony-tailed woman standing in the back. “Can you put your hair down while I’m talking?” he half-quipped. She complied. “That’s what I like, control.”
Others at the soiree included Paul Shaffer, Malcolm Gets, Matthew Modine and his wife, Cari Modine.
