Richard Simmons

Richard Simmons is a weight loss and fitness guru. Simmons' birth name is Milton Teagle Simmons. He was born on July 12, 1948 in New Orleans, LA. As a child, Simmons was overweight and has used his personal weight loss journey to inspire others. His exercise classes at his now-closed Slimmons studio and video series, titled “Sweatin’ to the Oldies,” blended cardio and dance. Known for his flamboyant personality and wacky outfits, fans have grown concerned about Simmons' health due to his elusiveness and privacy in recent years. The podcast “Missing Richard Simmons” by filmmaker Dan Taberski discusses the star’s disappearance. Simmons resides in the Hollywood Hills with his housekeeper, Teresa Reveles, who is constantly hounded by paparazzi about her employer’s wellbeing.
