EXCLUSIVE

Richard Simmons just came home from the hospital ... with a little help from the LAPD, and under the cover of a blanket.

Simmons checked himself in on Monday for gastrointestinal issues. He returned home Thursday afternoon ... but there was a problem. Simmons longtime housekeeper called the LAPD and said she was followed by paparazzi, and ended up driving into the garage and hiding because she believed they might be on her property.

Cops arrived and found Richard and the housekeeper inside the garage in his Range Rover. They formed something of a human shield -- and Richard threw a blanket over his head -- and went inside the house.

We're told he's in good spirits, was laughing and seems fine health-wise.

He continued ... "I reached out and hope you will too. I'm sure there are people in your life who love and care for you and would do anything to help you with the challenges you face."

He posted a pic with his message -- though it appears to be an old shot -- and thanked fans for well wishes and added he should be back home in a couple of days.

As for the future, he said ... "Hope to see you again soon!"

We broke the story .. although he's been secluded for 3 years, we're told Richard leaves his Hollywood Hills home from time to time in disguise, and walks with a cane.

Richard Simmons Hospitalized For Gastrointestinal Issues

4/18/2017 7:58 AM PDT

Richard Simmons went to the hospital Monday for "severe indigestion" ... according to his rep.

Richard had been battling "discomfort while eating" for several days, and finally decided to get treatment at a hospital on Monday.

His rep, Michael Catalano, told ABC News ... Richard was already doing much better and expects to make a full recovery.

Our sources say the "gastrointestinal issue" wasn't serious enough for an ambulance, and Richard's people drove him to the hospital.

This is the second time in the last year Richard's had to leave his home -- where he's been sheltered for years -- for hospital care. Last summer, he was at Cedars-Sinai for 3 days after his housekeeper said he'd become incoherent.

His people said that was a case of dehydration ... which seemed weird for several days of treatment.

Richard Simmons Friend Says He's Fine But His Knee's Not

4/16/2017 7:55 AM PDT

Richard Simmons is "perfect," and "happy," but he's still dealing with a knee problem that has kept him in virtual hiding for the last 3 years ... that's the takeaway we got from one of his closest friends.

A woman named Denise -- who says she's known Richard for 35 years -- was at Richard's gate delivering flowers where she said the former fitness guru is doing great.

But then she says Richard's been dealing with a medical issue for years -- his knee. TMZ broke the story back in November, 2014 -- 8 months after Simmons just disappeared -- that he had 2 bad knees and an operation on the first was so painful he was delaying the second.

It seems that based on what Denise is saying ... Richard was bedridden for a time because he never got the second knee operation. Unclear if he's gotten it done yet.

The mystery continues.

United Flight Attendants Dao's Injuries Easily Preventable IF Cops Knew Better

4/12/2017 9:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

United flight attendants are shocked David Dao was brutalized and bloodied because police could have prevented any injury if they had a clue about the plane they boarded.

We spoke to several United employees who say the officers should have known the armrests on those seats are movable. Remember, Dao's head slammed into the armrest, causing at least some of his injuries.

The flight attendants point out the cops could have effortlessly lifted the armrest before forcibly removing Dao ... who appeared to get hung up on the middle seat armrests before hitting the one on the aisle.

The employees we spoke to made it clear they believe Dao should've been removed, but they're fuming at how it was handled.

United's CEO says they're reviewing its procedures in these situations, but flight attendants think it's the police who need more training.
