Richard Simmons: Prayers for Paris

You never know who you're going to see driving down Sunset Strip ... you might be next to Richard Simmons! Heaven help us!

The exercise guru pulled over and asked the paparazzo where he was headed, and after the pap told him he was covering Paris' surrender to authorities -- Simmons decided to lead a prayer for the imprisoned starlet.

One advantage to interviewing Simmons in the car -- not seeing those horrid striped shorts! Watch the video for Richie's prayer for Paris in jail, where he tells her to "Come out soon!"
