    I know someone who diddled him. My friend said he was all squashy and soft, like f**king a nerf ball.

    It says he hasn`t discussed his sexuality Gerry, are you outing him here and now on I-A-B? or was your friend female?

    goofy as he is I can admire him, he is one of the few fitness guru`s that probably actually believes in his product and has actually lost lots of weight himself, that said im very glad im not fat.

    someone told me that Simmons is actually a straight man, the whole "flaming" personality is just a gimmick...no idea if it`s true, though.

    Annoying he may be, but if he helps people lose weight and he doesn`t seem to much in love with himself then he should be treated nicely. I do not care about his sexuality- it is irrelevant to what he does..

    i feel terrible for laughing about the letterman and stern thing, but in all seriousness, he`s a freaking cancer (zodiac sign). cancers are known for being extremely sensitive

    I love Richard Simmons! :D
    I remember as a toddler, my grandmother used to have some of his exercise videos and I`d dance along to them. I remember liking how happy and excited he was.
    And he`s from Louisiana, too :`) Yay Richard!

    @ britt:

    soooooo he was insulted by Stern and Letterman`s cruelty ONLY because he was a Cancer? if someone sprayed you in the face with a potentially dangerous chemical on national television, wouldn`t you be a tad bit offended?

    it has nothing to do with his cancer sign...Stern and Letterman were just being dicks.

    Yes, because the time of year of your birth determines your personality. What a gullible little girl you are.

    "Yes, because the time of year of your birth determines your personality."

    Not determines. Influences.

    It`s related more to the season, but still, months generally have the same season each year.

    I don`t think Richard Simmons has sex with anyone, gay or straight. But he helps fat people lose weight, and that makes him a hero in my book.

    Yeah, I think that might be right. Some people just don`t need sex. I had a band teacher I think was like that- everyone wondered if he was gay, but I just think music was passion enough for him. We`re all different, so who knows?

    "soooooo he was insulted by Stern and Letterman`s cruelty ONLY because he was a Cancer?"

    No, not ONLY. But cancers are known for being sensitive. I know quite a few cancers that cannot handle a small insult without breaking down. I`m not saying that was the ONLY reason, I was just trying to put the pieces to the puzzle together in my mind... i mean he ran off crying...

    ...

    "if someone sprayed you in the face with a potentially dangerous chemical on national television, wouldn`t you be a tad bit offended?"

    a tad. I`m not saying that`s not a douche bag move.

    "Yes, because the time of year of your birth determines your personality."

    The time, place, and year of a persons birth can give great detail, yes.

    I`ve always liked Richard Simmons. He exudes positivity, positivity that can only come from a person who has experienced deeply negative emotions in his life.

    Wish I could be so damn chipper, instead I just get pissed off.

    Hehe, astrology. Wait, let me get my craniometer, as I`m pretty sure Richard is of inferior lineage, thus his crying.

    he was himself, as a personality, tv or otherwise, when coming out could kill a career, he didn`t have to say where he put his penis for pleasure, he remained true to himself, what may have made him fodder for jokes then, make(to me , anyway) him a symbol of the american dream, he is rich,free, and ......u dont get to know if hetakes it up the butt, `cause that ain`t cho buisness

    @Seastone-
    It`s true- asexuality is on the spectrum of sexual orientation.

    As for Simmons` sexuality, props to him for not giving into pressure to discuss it publicly at a time when people act as if they have a RIGHT to know every single detail of every celebrity`s life.
