Fitness guru, Richard Simmons, apparently left his house for the first time in three years, but not to soak up the sunshine. Simmons was rushed to the hospital after battling severe indigestion.
It has been three years since Simmons has come outside his home since he retreated from the world.
Simmons’ representative, Michael Catalano, spoke with ABC news and stated, “After a few days of battling severe indigestion and discomfort while eating, we agreed it was best for him to seek treatment. He’s already feeling better and is expected to make a full recovery.”
However, this incident happened just weeks after a rumor spread that Simmons was finally going to be ready to come out of hiding, and also that the guru had just signed a major deal with Prominent Brand and Talent.
This new deal will give Prominent the rights to represent Simmons for licensing, merchandising, and endorsement opportunities around the globe.
An unnamed Prominent representative expressed, “Everything he stands for has been the gold standard in health and wellness. He has paved the way for every subsequent fitness personality in this country, yet none of them have matched the impact of Richard’s indelible imprint on America’s psyche.”
Simmons is expected to make a full recovery.
