Richard Simmons Denies Rumors He's Transitioning

Richard Simmons is speaking out in a statement to deny rumors that he is transitioning to a woman.

Reports have been surfacing after the 67-year-old former fitness guru was hospitalized recently for dehydration.

“Some tabloids have recently falsely reported that I am transitioning. In response, I feel compelled to set the record straight and refute these lies,” Richard wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Although I am not transitioning, I have and always will be supportive of those who are going through their journey. We should not lose focus on showing love, strength and compassion to all of the LGBT community during these tragic times. My broken heart and healing thoughts are with the people of Orlando and all other victims of prejudice, bigotry and hate.”

Richard Simmons‘ rep is debunking rumors that he is transitioning from male to female, despite rumors that have been running rampant since his mysterious hospitalization last week.

The National Enquirer reported that Richard was undergoing surgery to become a woman, but his rep said, “The story is a complete fabrication and not true,” (via THR).

Richard has not made any public appearances in years, and his sudden absence from the limelight has been a cause for speculation.

Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan, is about an Irish immigrant (Ronan) in 1950s New York who falls for a tough Italian plumber (Emory Cohen), but faces temptation from another man (Domhnall Gleeson) when she returns to her homeland for a visit.

Arguably one of the best films for the year, the new romantic drama explores personal reflection and the driving force of love in this unforgettable tale. Saoirse Ronan really shines in this film, confirming why she received a Best Actress in a Leading Role nomination for the Oscars.

The film can feel simple at times, however, that aspect tends to accentuate the engagement warranted by this film. The drama particularly shines in the more intimate and quieter parts of the film where subtlety becomes a story-telling emphasis. While arguably a fairly soft love story, this film is also a solid date movie while giving a very artistic and sophisticated feel.

Extras from this release include promotional featurettes talking about the different themes of the film, deleted and extended scenes, and the usual audio commentary.

This film is highly recommended for people looking for a solid love story and great acting.

Sisters, starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, is about siblings Maura (Poehler) and Kate (Fey), who learn that they have one weekend to clean out the junk from their old bedroom. Unhappy with the news, the recently divorced Maura and her hotheaded sister make plans to throw one final bash to recapture their glory days with their former classmates. As the raging party begins to spiral out of control, the gals soon realize that there may not be a house left to sell once the dust settles.

Despite being fairly quiet in the theaters, the film grossed over $105M worldwide. The biggest draw being comedic favorites Tina Fey and Amy Poehler teaming up again. Watching them play the part of sisters is very natural in this film, which really helps drive this story. Although the film can be a bit predictable with all the party movie cliches, Amy and Tina shine in the way they react to them. Other notable side roles include SNL alum’s Maya Rudolph and WWE’s John Cena.

Extras in this release include deleted scenes, extended scenes, and a the usual favorite gag reel. Little featurettes also talk about how the cast can improv, while ‘A Teen Movie…For Adults’ explores how the film was created.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip sees music manager Dave (Jason Lee) is not only enjoying a burgeoning career, but a blossoming romance with Samantha (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), a beautiful doctor who works in the emergency room. Through a series of misunderstandings, the chipmunks start to believe that a marriage proposal is on the horizon. Dreading the thought of an antagonistic stepbrother (Josh Green), Alvin (Justin Long), Theodore and Simon embark on a cross-country odyssey to prevent their best pal from ruining their lives.

The 4th installment to the Alvin and the Chipmunks film gives more of the usual squirrel shenanigans while driving the “family” morality tale throughout. Although there isn’t much that stands out with this film, kids will inevitably still love this film. The animated film also throws in some well timed adult jokes too – which makes the film overall entertaining.

If you have kids that love the Chipmunks – this movie will be a welcome addition to that collection.

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.”
