Digestive Problems Send Richard Simmons to the Hospital
Fitness guru, Richard Simmons has been placed in a Los Angeles hospital for digestive problems. Michael Catalano, Simmons’ manager, told reporters that Simmons was suffering from “severe indigestion and discomfort while eating” for at least a few days.
Simmons has not spent as much time of late in the spotlight but a popular podcast was put together called, “Missing Richard Simmons.” Simmons is 68 years old and is reported to be otherwise in good physical shape.
Dan Taberski hosted the popular podcast that sought to look into where Simmons was. He is a filmmaker and friend of Simmons. This prompted the Los Angeles Police Department to perform a welfare check back in March. The detective reported that Simmons was fine. He went on to say Simmons “is just taking some time for himself.” He also described the fitness expert as being funny, nice and articulate and that Simmons is in good shape.
Simmons moved from Louisiana to Los Angeles in the 1970s. This is where he developed his interest in fitness and helping others lead a healthier lifestyle. He was disillusioned with the diet fads of the day and wanted to show people how to eat a more healthy diet.
In Los Angeles, he got involved with several television shows and even hosted “The Richard Simmons Show” for several years. That show won a few Emmy’s. He also had a recurring for four years on the soap opera “General Hospital.” In addition he appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Super Password,” and “Win Lose or Draw.” He is credited with writing nine books, one of which was his autobiography, “Still Hungry – After All These Years: My Story.”
Over the course of his career, Simmons has helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off. He still teaches motivational classes, despite his absence from the spotlight, he continues to help people. He is expected to make a full recovery.
