Richard Simmons Tells His Fans That He’s Sure He’ll Be Feeling Okay Soon 

April 19, 2017 / Posted by:

The sparkly cloud-topped Pixy Stix that is Richard Simmons hardly ever speaks directly to his loyal disciples ever since he retired from the spotlight, but today, he left a message for his fans on his Facebook page. Richard very briefly responded to the podcast Richard Simmons Is Missing and mostly thanked everyone for praying to their Santo Simmons candle while he’s laid up in the hospital.

Richard has been in the hospital since Monday and his rep says he’s got digestion issues. In his Facebook message, he also gifted his fans with words of inspiration about reaching out for help when they really need it.

Hello to everyone who has shown concern for me and sent their good wishes. You will never know how much it means to me. Aren’t you sick of hearing and reading about me?! LOL Well by now you know that I’m not “missing”, just a little under the weather. I’m sure I will be feeling good and back home in a couple of days.

This has reminded me that when you need help you can’t be afraid to reach out and ask for it. We all think we should always be able to solve our problems all by ourselves and sometimes it’s just bigger than we are. I reached out and I hope you will too. I’m sure there are people in your life who love and care for you and would do anything to help you with the challenges you face.

Just knowing you care has already made me feel better. Hope to see you again soon!


I need to text those words of kindness from Santo Simmons to my family, because whenever I call and say, “I need your help,” they suddenly get a case of diarrhea and tell me they need to call me back and they never do. Yes, I’m usually asking for another loan I won’t pay back, but still!

TMZ says Richard isn’t holed up in his Hollywood Hills home every day, all day. They say that he does get out, only he wears a disguise. Most people don’t recognize him, apparently. Yeah, TMZ really shoveled a load of bullshit into my eyes with that one. It’s not possible for a human to not recognize Richard Simmons, even if he’s wearing a disguise. If you threw a fedora on a rainbow, you’d still clearly a rainbow. If you threw Groucho Marx gag glasses on a star in the sky, you’d still clearly see a star in the sky. If you threw a scarf around a firework, you’d probably burn down half of the neighborhood, but you’d still clearly see a firework. The same goes for Richard Simmons. He’s undisguisable!
