Richard Simmons Breaks 2 Year Silence: "Wanted To Be A Loner For A Little While"


He speaks.

On Saturday, the New York Post broke a story that legendary fitness guru Richard Simmons had become a hostage in his own home. The report stated that Simmons' housekeeper, and manager were keeping the media away and forcing him to stay holed up in his house.

There were reports last year, that Simmons' health had drastically declined due to a knee injury, and that he was also possibly depressed .

Today though, Richard is setting the facts straight with a phone call into the 'TODAY' show.

Richard said:

“No one is holding me in my house as a hostage,”

“You know, I do what I want to do as I’ve always done so people should sort of just believe what I have to say because like I’m Richard Simmons!”


“That’s just very silly,”

 “Teresa Reveles (housekeeper) has been with me for 30 years. It’s almost like we’re a married couple.”

“I just sort of wanted to be a little bit of a loner for a little 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.”



And there you have it.
