I used to love to watch Richard Simmons and his enthusiasm and how he could make working out fun with great oldies hits.-Jami
Richard Simmons has broken his 6-year silence, with his spokesperson telling The Post that the beloved fitness icon is “living the life he has chosen.”
Simmons’ rep, Tom Estey, spoke Friday following the release of a new documentary about the workout king’s sudden disappearance from the spotlight.
“Richard is eternally grateful for the continuous outpouring of love and gratitude he has received from across the Globe,” Estey told The Post. “He is happy, healthy and living the life he has chosen to live.”
On Wednesday, Simmons, 74, published his own short note to Facebook, simply saying: “Thank you, everyone, for your kindness and love. Love, Richard.”
Estey confirmed the message was personally composed by Simmons, and was his first public correspondence with fans in 6 years.
