In a recent statement, the fitness guru shared:

“Thank you to everyone who has reached out with love and concern after hearing I was in the hospital. I was dehydrated and needed some fluids and now I am feeling great! Summer is here – drink plenty of liquids. Big hugs and kisses for caring.”

Huh. While we’re happy to hear that Simmons is doing well, we DO wonder about the reports that claim he was exhibiting “bizarre” behavior before being taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in El Lay on Friday evening. It was initially reported that the 67-year-old’s housekeeper called 911 after Richard “became incoherent.”

Not to mention, this visit to the hospital comes a few months after a close friend claimed the weight loss specialist was being held hostage by his housekeeper. Simmons has since denied those rumors.

Regardless, we’re just thrilled that Richard is a-ok! Rest up, buddy.
