Richard Simmons Death Rumor Debunked: Official Statement

Hey, Richard Simmons enthusiasts, no need to panic. Despite what his unsettling tweets on Monday might suggest, the flamboyant fitness guru isn’t on his deathbed.

Simmons kicked things off with a tweet that raised eyebrows. “I have some news,” he said, urging his followers not to be downhearted. “I am… dying.” You can imagine the shock. But then he clarified, “Aren’t we all?” Every day, he noted, brings us closer to the inevitable. His point? To live life to the fullest, every single day. “Look at the sky, count your blessings, and enjoy,” he advised.

Following that, Simmons dropped some lifestyle tips. He covered the basics: eating well, getting enough sleep, and, of course, staying active.

“Kickstart your day with a hearty breakfast,” he suggested. Maybe oatmeal, whole wheat toast, or eggs? And don’t forget fresh fruit. Lunch could be a refreshing salad, and dinner should be light and balanced. “A big hug,” he added, “can make a huge difference.” He even recommended a song by Tim McGraw, “Live Like You Were Dying,” to inspire his followers.

However, the initial shock of his “dying” tweet caused quite a stir. Many fans and even the media were left wondering about Simmons’ well-being.

A few hours later, Simmons cleared the air. He apologized for the confusion his message caused. “I am not dying,” he reassured everyone. His intention was to encourage people to cherish every day.

Simmons has been out of the public eye since 2014, sparking all sorts of rumors. In 2017, a podcast titled “Missing Richard Simmons” delved into his sudden disappearance. Despite the speculation, Simmons broke his silence in 2022. He assured everyone through the New York Post that he is “happy, healthy, and living the life he has chosen.”

So, there you have it. Richard Simmons is just fine, living life on his terms and encouraging us all to do the same.
