Richard Simmons Breaks Silence After Two Years - Listen Now!

Richard Simmons Breaks Silence After Two Years - Listen Now!

Richard Simmons is breaking his silence after two years in hiding in a new phone interview with The Today Show.

Reports spread the other day that the 67-year-old former fitness guru was being held hostage in his own home after he cut off contact with his friends.

“No one is holding me in my house as a hostage,” Simmons told Savannah Guthrie. “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!”

The report said that Richard‘s housekeeper was controlling his life and he responded to those rumors.

“That’s just very silly,” he said. “Teresa Reveles 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,” Richard said about the reason for his disappearance. “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.”
