PR SAVVY RICHARD SIMMONS: IS HE PULLING A FAST ONE ON US?

Awhile back when Richard Simmons went into hiding under mysterious circumstances, we felt sorry for him – sensing he was having some sort of physical or mental problems. The fact that he has not been SEEN for years makes everyone assume his is radically changed somehow – perhaps grossly overweight, crippled, or like the Enquirer suggested, living as a woman. He’s had two suspicious hospital stays this year – were they really for plastic surgery, liposuction, transitioning? This week’s exit from the hospital suggests that Richard is turning into some sort of melodramatic Sunset Boulevard character and enjoys every moment of it. Imagine being hustled out of the hospital covered entirely by a blanket with a police escort to shoo the paparazzi! SOMETHING was under that blanket! Richard just upped the ante – the first photo of him is now worth BIG BUCKS! Is he manipulating all this or is he an innocent recluse?

THE RICHARD SIMMONS MYSTERY MAY BECOME A TV SERIES

We can’t help being fascinated by the podcast Missing Richard Simmons and the possibility, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that it might become a TV series. Is he at home CRINGING or chortling in delight at this news? Becoming a hermit has brought him almost as much attention as his high profile life as an exercise weight-loss guru and inspirational speaker. We remember in the early 90’s boarding the same plane to New York as Richard. One look and he exploded with excitement, loudly announcing up and down the aisle that the gossip reporter from Star magazine was on the flight! It was a little embarrassing, but fun. You had to love him. We’re not buying that Richard “retired” in 2014, simply abandoning his Slimmons studio. We ended up with the same knee problems that Richard has had- possibly due to excessive aerobics. We don’t think he’s having a sex change like the National Enquirer stated. But he went from EXTREME extrovert to introvert – and that’s not normal. Is he wallowing in self-pity? This weeks hospitalization for gastrointestional problems makes us think of drugs. Painkillers. We hope we are wrong, but will continue to keep whatever tabs we can upon Richard.

RICHARD SIMMONS: THE MYSTERY DEEPENS…

Richard Simmons’ exercise studio closed last year – he hadn’t taught a class for almost three years – and hasn’t been SEEN for that long. At one time it was the most famous aerobics classroom in the world. It made Simmons rich and famous – his workout videos raked in loads of money and celebrities flocked to his studio. What happened? One day the loud and outgoing Simmons suddenly locked himself in his house and refused to be seen. His “housekeeper” Teresa does his errands in his Range Rover and carries a Vuitton handbag. The Enquirer speculated that Richard was having a sex change, and WAS going out, disguised as a woman. But we fear it’s more serious than that. Teresa called 911 and he was briefly hospitalized in June. No explanation to speak of. Is he bi-polar and currently depressed? That would explain his occasional high octane-exuberance. It’s a real Hollywood mystery. Meanwhile Dancing with the Stars’ Kym Herjavec (she married well!) is taking over the space and opening her first dance studio.

RICHARD SIMMONS FANS WOULD HAPPILY “SWEAT TO THE OLDIES” WITH EITHER FIONA OR RICHARD

Some of Richard Simmons’ longtime aerobics class members were excited to hear that he might be transitioning into a woman and they immediately started speculating about what “Fiona” would WEAR if she returned to teaching classes! Many of Richard’s followers credit him for helping them lose weight and change their lives and they hope to “Sweat to the Oldies” with Simmons again! They hoped classes would resume soon but it doesn’t look promising. Richard denies that he’s transitioning but still has no explanation for his odd behavior and withdrawal from society. Remember, for YEARS, Bruce Jenner and his family scoffed at Enquirer rumors that HE was transitioning. And look how THAT turned out. Richard has lots of fans who will be happy to welcome him back in ANY form.

IS RICHARD SIMMONS LIVING AS A FEMALE?

The National Enquirer dropped a BOMBSHELL today and it was almost like old times! The tabloid says Richard Simmons, 68, has been out of sight because he’s been having hormone treatments and secret surgeries to turn himself into a WOMAN! That explains a LOT! They claim he is now living as a female and calling himself Fiona. The Enquirer says lately he’s been going in and out of his house totally unrecognized. (She might be the woman next to you in the supermarket!) Apparently they have juicy photos to illustrate the story. And this scoop could easily be TRUE – remember the Enquirer wrote about Bruce Jenner having a sex change for YEARS before it happened! And the fact that the Enquirer’s lawyers okayed this headline story is another indication that it’s most likely accurate. If Richard wants to live as a woman – you go, girl! Live and let live! Can a reality show be far behind?

RICHARD SIMMONS: A WHOLE NEW LOOK

We had to look at this familiar face twice before we realized who it is. Richard Simmons looks very different without the tank top and shorts we usually see him wearing for all occasions. Richard was photographed with friends at The Grove. And yes, he still teaches zany aerobics classes in Beverly Hills three times a week to music like “It’s Raining Men.”
