UPDATE 6:03 PM EST: It appears Richard has finally been released from the hospital. Photos seem to show the Louisiana native rocking a beard while leaving the hospital in the backseat of a car.
Shots show the same vehicle — which also had the eccentric star’s longtime housekeeper in the passenger seat — arriving at Richard’s home on Monday night.
We’re just glad he’s actually out of the hospital now, and hope he’s feeling better.
UGH, we hate not knowing what’s going on with Richard Simmons!
On Monday, Richard’s longtime maid Teresa Reveles was spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles DAYS after the fitness guru was allegedly discharged for “dehydration”. Per the icon’s sources, he was admitted on Friday night and allegedly left Saturday afternoon.
Now fans are calling into question Simmons’ actual health status after spotting the maid at the hospital as early as yesterday. It’s just one of the many controversies the television personality has faced after going into seclusion around 2014.
To make matters even fishier, back in March one of R.S.’s close friends alleged that Teresa and a few other insiders are keeping him hostage in his home. The former pal claims Ms. Reveles is controlling everything Richard does or can do.
Either way, it’s alarming to know that the 67-year-old still might be in the hospital three days after checking in. It’s definitely a big departure from just a few years ago when we’d see the beloved figure out and about town.
So, what do YOU think is really going on with Richard?
