This is comforting.
While there are many rumors swirling about fitness guru Richard Simmons, his brother has spoken out to refute those.
Simmons hasn't been seen out in public since 2004, but Lenny Simmons is saying that his brother is "doing great" and simply needs a break from the spotlight.
Richard himself spoke out in a phone interview last year, when reports circulated that he was being held against his will inside of his home by his housekeeper Teresa Reveles.
Lenny stated in his newest interview, that Teresa and Richard are very close and those rumors are absurd.
