Richard Simmons breaks his silence on if he’s transitioning
June 14th, 2016 under Richard Simmons. [ Comments: 1 ]


A few weeks ago, Richard Simmons was briefly hospitalized and then there were plenty of rumors about him. Several tabloids said that The Weight Saint was transitioning into being a woman, and today he denied it.
He said, “Some tabloids have recently falsely reported that I am transitioning. In response, I feel compelled to set the record straight and refute these lies. Although I am not transitioning, I have and always will be supportive of those who are going through their journey. We should not lose focus on showing love, strength and compassion to all of the LGBT community during these tragic times. My broken heart and healing thoughts are with the people of Orlando and all other victims of prejudice, bigotry and hate.”
Hopefully this declaration will get them to stop, but it won’t. I wish that it would because he obviously is going through something and rumors like this won’t help. We should be helping him like he has helped so many others.

Richard Simmons says he is good and not being held hostage.
March 14th, 2016 under Richard Simmons. [ Comments: none ]

Over the weekend, The NY Daily News posted an article about how Richard Simmons’ friends are worried about him and fear that he is possibly being held captive by his maid of 30 years since he hasn’t been seen in over in public or by his friends in over 2 years. Today, he spoke with Today and denied all of that.
Savannah Guthrie started their phone call of by asking him how he is doing and he said, “I’m feeling good, my health is good and I am sort of enjoying the day.” When she asked if he was being held captive, he told her, “No one is holding me in my house as a hostage. I do what I want to do as I have always done. So people should sort of believe what I have to say because like, I’m Richard Simmons.”
Then he explained why we haven’t seen him two years. He said. “I just sort of want to be a little bit of a loner for a while. You know, I had hurt my knee, and I had some problems with it, and then the other knee started giving me trouble because I’ve taught like thousands and thousands of classes, and you know right now I just want to sort of take care of me.”
When asked if this was his decision, he sadly said, “I just really don’t want to do anything, you know. I just don’t want to be traveling anymore. It certainly has taken its toll on me, so it was not like over a day, it was just over some time.”
How is he spending the time? He goes for walks, drives and works out in his own personal gym at his house. In fact, he even told Entertainment Tonight‘s Brad Bessey that he has not gained weight and still weighs 150 pounds.
Before he hung up the phone, he had a message for his fans who are worried about him. He said, “For all the people that were worrying about me, I want to tell them that I love them with my whole heart and soul and that not to worry, Richard’s fine.” Concluding the call with, “You haven’t seen the last of me. I’ll come back, and I’ll come back strong.”
I don’t know what is going and it is not really my place to judge, but I find it so weird for that someone who feeds off of human attention and is so kind to others, suddenly desires to just be alone for so long. I hope whatever he is going through, passes soon. The world is much brighter place with his smile, attitude and and crazy outfits. We need out Richard Simmons back.
What do you think of his phone call?

Richard Simmons has a message for his fans
December 28th, 2015 under Richard Simmons. [ Comments: 4 ]


For the last year, no one has seen Richard Simmons, and people are concerned for him. Back in November, he broke his silence on Facebook and said, “I am so touched by the outpouring of love and concern I have received today. I have had a tough time dealing with this injury, as it is keeping me from doing what I truly love to do and that is to teach classes around the world. Make sure you keep Sweatin’!” And since then he has been silent.
Then yesterday, he took to Facebook to say, “I’ve never forgotten how amazing and loving you guys have been, especially in my tough times. It makes ALL the difference in the world.”
Hopefully, it will be enough to get him out of hiding. We understand he needs some to time heal, but he has made us so happy throughout the years, that we just want to do the same for him.

RIchard Simmons is ready to serve you!

Richard Simmons loves to dress up and his latest inspiration was that of a Victorian maid. The Weight Saint said that if anyone is looking for a housekeeper, he’s available along with that picture. You know what, I so want to hire him because he would turn housekeeping into a workout and who doesn’t need that?
I can’t wait for his next exercise DVD, Sweatin’ to the Cleaning. I know, I would add it to my collection of his workout DVDs! Seriously, aren’t they so much fun to do? Or maybe I enjoy doing them so much because he is so much fun to watch as I get my Cardio done for the day.

Richard Simmons is a knockout!
January 7th, 2014 under Richard Simmons. [ Comments: none ]


Richard Simmons has been posting gorgeous pictures of himself all dressed up like Hollywood beauties and I think his latest might be the prettiest one of them all. Seriously, can he look any more fabulous in this photo? Simmons is even more stunning than a lot of the starlets currently walking the red carpets. Ciao Bella!
BTW I am so jealous that The Weight Saint has better closet of dresses than I do.
