Is Richard Simmons maybe planning a comeback???
Some signs point to yes!
The fitness guru, who hasn’t made a public appearance in three years and whose reclusive life has been the subject of way too much scrutiny lately, has signed with Prominent Brand + Talent, a management company co-founded by his longtime manager Michael Catalano.
Seems like a positive step, right?
The agency announced Wednesday that they had exclusively signed Richard in order to represent him for licensing, merchandising, and endorsements.
The goal is to “create a collection of Richard Simmons-inspired products and build on the fitness icon’s current lineup merchandise.”
Dan Levin, a managing member of Prominent, said:
“Prominent is proud to represent Richard Simmons. And has plans to launch a global line of thoughtful motivation and inspiration-based products that will achieve the tenets Richard has always espoused├óΓé¼ΓÇ£love yourself no matter what you weigh, make time to do good for others and laugh a little.”
No word on whether Richard himself will help promote the new merch with appearances, but we can hope!
If he does make an eventual appearance, it will help to finally put a lot of those rumors to rest!
But ultimately that’s Richard’s decision to make. We just continue wishing him the best!
