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.

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....


Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!

And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:

Louisa Johnson Drops Banger "YES"!!!

Get into this!!!

You may not know Louisa Johnson, but the singer won season 12 of the UK 'X Factor', and while she's always consistently delivered bops, she's gone dropped her best yet!
'Yes' is a sure fire hit for Louisa, which takes us straight to the dance floor. The instant earworm of a chorus is contagious immediately, her vocals soar, and it's somewhat reminiscent of Christina Aguilera's 'Dirrty'.

'Will & Grace' Revival Renewed For Season 3.....AHEAD Of Season 2!!

Our fab 4 aren't going anywhere!!

In an amazing move, NBC has announced that, while 'Will & Grace' will see additional episodes added to season 2, it's always been renewed for a 3rd season!!

There are still currently 2 episodes left of the revival's 1st season, and the show was already picked up for next season. Then comes the amazing news that we're getting a THIRD season!

This now puts the revival up to 52 episodes when everything is added together. Season 1 will clock in at 13 episodes, season 2 has now been upped from 13 to 18, and season 3 will deliver another 18!

Who's excited for more 'Will & Grace'??

'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3: Your Champion Is.....


That happened.

Tonight marked the end of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3, and yours truly has quite a bit to say.....

It's not exactly going to be positive.

In a finale that saw Trixie Mattel crowned champion, it took us awhile to get there. With plenty of drama. And some bullshit new format courtesy of Mama Ru.

After a bit of a rocky & uneven season that saw BenDelaCreme bow out after being the clear front runner for the crown, the final 4 of Shangela, Bebe Zahara Benet, Kennedy Davenport, and Trixie Mattel battled it out.

The queens took part in an epic music video extravaganza set to RuPaul's 'Kitty Girl', but that wasn't the big shocker of the episode.

RuPaul revealed that the eliminated queens would return for one final time, judging the final 4 and making the decision as to WHO would make top 2.

There lies our issue.

Let's be real:

Along with Dela, Shangela was the front runner this season, and while Trixie had the fan base, …
