Richard Simmons’ illness rumor sparked imaginations everywhere after the fitness guru showed up on DWTS to support the celebrities’ exercise routines. To most everyone’s surprise, Simmons appeared to be extremely skinny, which caused the rumor mill to churn that exercisin’ celebrity was ill. But is he?
According to Richard Simmons’ longtime representative, “He’s the healthiest he’s ever been.” Really? Now c’mon, the guy is 63 and pushing 64, and he is the “healthiest he’s ever been?” No one really believes his rep; after all, Simmons’ rep gets paid to speak positively about him.
So is Simmons really ill? Probably not! He is just getting older, and his “healthy” is not so attractive anymore. Right?
Richard Simmons’ representative, Tom Estey, made this statement: “He’s actually at the weight he was when we launched the original Sweatin’ to the Oldies. He is completely healthy, happy and fit as a fiddle.”
Estey really emphasized the fact that Richard Simmons’ feeling “happy.” He also explained that “Everything with him could not be better.”
Okay, of course, Richard Simmons is not on his proverbial deathbed, but does anyone believe the exaggerated statements of his representative? Does anyone else think there is actually something wrong with Simmons’ health and his rep is hiding something? After all, aren’t they supposed to lie for their celebrities? Sound off below!
