What do you think of Pauly Shore’s Richard Simmon’s short film?
January 21st, 2024 under Pauly Shore, Richard Simmons. [ Comments: none ]

For a while, Pauly Shore has been trying to make a movie about his doppelganger, Richard Simmons. And he finally made a short about The Weight Saint’s life.

The Court Jester had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and then it was released for everyone to watch on YouTube.

The less than ten-minute short is mostly credits and a scene that could be part of the movie which does not have Simmons’ “permission.”

It takes place later in Simmons’ life when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The production is cheap, and the casting of Ellen was atrocious. But the story told was sweet, and makes us miss Simmons even more than we do.

While I am more willing to accept Shore’s potential movie because I think he will honor Simmons correctly. I still wish he would get Simmons’ approval.

What do you think of Shore’s short?


Richard Simmons shares an inspirational message
January 19th, 2024 under Hot Links!, Richard Simmons. [ Comments: none ]

Richard Simmons has been mostly silent for almost a decade. But this week, he broke his silence twice.

First, he made it clear he was not involved in Pauly Shore’s biopic about him.

And today, he posted a message for all of us. “All I want for all of you is to be happy and peaceful. Please don’t let anyone be mean to you or put you down,” he wrote. “You don’t deserve that. Never forget I keep all of you in my prayers every single night. Know your worth.”

And Mr. Simmons, You are in our prayers. I hope you are well because you have made so many people happy. And you deserve to have happiness.


Richard Simmons didn’t give Pauly Shore ‘permission’ to do his biopic

Pauly Shore has been saying that he wants to make and star in a Richard Simmons biopic for a while, so he went ahead and did it.

The comedian even says he reached out to the Weight Saint for permission to make the film. He just didn’t wait to get an answer from Simmons.

Today, Shore announced, “Pauly Shore plays Richard Simmons in biopic. Hey guys, here’s where we’re at in the process. Check out the video. I’ll see you this weekend at #Sundance with @jakevlewis. ‘The Court Jester’ short premiers at @thecabinparkcity this Friday, Jan 19 at 8pm PT and then the world will be able to watch it too. World premier Saturday, Jan 20 at 6am PT on the @lewis_brothers YouTube channel. Can’t wait for you guys to see it!”

After the press picked up the story, Simmons, who has become a recluse, made a rare public statement, “You may have heard they may be doing a movie about me with Pauly Shore.

“I have never given my permission for this movie. So don’t believe everything you read.

“I no longer have a manager, and I no longer have a publicist.

“I just try to live a quiet life and be peaceful. Thank you for all your love and support.”

With that, I think that Shore should pull the short from the festival. But I have a feeling he won’t. I mean, how would The Weasle feel if someone made an unauthorized biopic about him? I am pretty sure it wouldn’t be pretty.

As much as I would love to see Simmons come out of hiding, I think we should leave him alone and let him have his life as he wishes.


Pauly Shore gives an update on his possible Richard Simmons movie
September 26th, 2023 under Pauly Shore, Richard Simmons. [ Comments: none ]

Hey, buddy! Pauly Shore really wants to do a movie about Richard Simmons because he looks so much like him. All he needs is the Weight Guru’s approval. So, the comedian reached out to him. And his people responded.

RICHARD SIMMONS UPDATE. Since many people always told me I look like Richard Simmons, I started this series on all my social media platforms called Sweatin with the Wiez honoring Richard. Then someone made their own meme about me playing Richard in a biopic. The post I did, it was me responding to all that love from you guys. So, I reached out to Richard… and his representatives said that Richard loves me and my mom (he has known us both for decades), but Richard is politely passing. He said Richard, at this time, wants to remain private, which we all need to respect. Richard, we all miss you, love you very much and want nothing but the best for you. You are in all of our hearts. You can always reach out to me if you change your mind. I’m just a phone call away. And since today is Yom Kippur, I’d love to stop by, bring you some yummy warm matzo ball soup and sit at the head of your bed and gaze into your eyes.

Wait a minute, here’s an idea. Why don’t we hit up Dexter Fletcher, the dude who did an AMAZING job directing Rocketman, the Elton John story? Dexter, we can do a test tape to present to Richard and his reps for his blessing? What do you think, you guys? I mean, the movie poster has already been made! Hit up Dexter, doodz.”

So there you have it. It doesn’t look like the biopic is going to happen. That is unless they do an unauthorized version. But that would be royally fucked up if Shore did that.


Pauly Shore makes his case to play Richard Simmons

Hey, Buddy! Now that Pauly Shore saw his two Encino Man co-stars, Brendan Frazer and Ke Huy Quan, win Oscars this year, he wants one for himself. And he has the perfect role to make it happen.

“I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic,” the Weasle wrote.” I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at
@TheAcademy 2025!

Are we shore that Sammy Shore is his father? Because it was the ’60s, and Pauly looks a lot like the Weight Guru.

And when it comes to the movie. I would totally see him as Simmons. Would y0u?
