    Loved Ones Fear Richard Simmons Being Held Against His Will

    ‘They are taking advantage of his weak mental state,’ claims former assistant.

    Richard Simmons shot to fame for his energetic personality and fitness obsession, but the exercise guru has mysteriously disappeared from public sight and insiders are worried he’s under the control of a group of people who may not have his best interests at heart.
    In an in-depth expose, the New York Daily News reports that Simmons last had contact with his former assistant, Mauro Oliveira, when he invited the masseuse to his Hollywood Hills home in April 2014.
    “Mauro, we can no longer see each other,” Simmons reportedly told the man.
    Bizarrely, Oliveira said that 67-year-old Simmons’ housekeeper, Teresa Reveles, who has worked for the star for over three decades, demanded he get out of the home, even though Simmons initially wanted him to stay.

    Oliveira said when he asked his former boss if Reveles was controlling his life, Simmons simply said, “Yes.”

    “I feel that Richard is now being controlled by the very people that he controlled his whole life,” he says. “Controlled in the sense that they are taking advantage of his weak mental state. Controlled in the sense that they are controlling his mail, controlling his everything. His brother, the manager and Teresa. Those three people.”

    The last time Simmons sat down for an interview was for a 2013 New Year’s Eve interview with CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, who asked him what his morning affirmations are. “I say, ‘Try to help more people,’” Simmons said in the televised interview before breaking down in tears.

    Simmons rode on a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that following November, and attended a Los Angeles fundraiser for Covered California in January 2014.

    In January 2015, TMZ reported that the LAPD paid a visit to Simmons after they were tipped off that things might be awry at the Hollywood Hills mansion, but found Simmons alert and responsive.

    I wonder why Richard Simmons is not speaking for himself? I hope he knows that his fans are worried and we want to hear from him. He might not be up to it and I wish to respect his privacy but I would like to see Dr.Oz or a similiar caregiver type interview him and maybe offer him support and assistance and give his fans a platform to show him that we love and miss him.

    Where's Richard Simmons?

    Quite an informative article.

    http://interactive.nydailynews.com/2...isted-mystery/

    Is witchcraft behind Richard Simmons' mysterious disappearance?

    The DM weighs-in too.

    I don't know what to think. Seems a well-being check is again in-order.

    Wishing the best for him. (We were neighbors back in his "Ruffage" days.)

    I hope he is OK. I loved him when he was on General Hospital.

    "NBC said Simmons will be interviewed Monday morning on its 'Today Show' program, following a Daily News story...."

    The interview will be audio - Richard will be calling in.

    When I first read this I was reminded of Casey Kasem and Mickey Rooney.

    And, in some ways, Michael Jackson. I have a bad feeling about this Richard Simmons situation. I wish there was a way to foil these types of predators.

    And Beach Boy Brian Wilson.

    Me too, my friend. Also similar to Peter Falk's daughter Catherine. Her efforts appear on her website, here:

    Article has been updated. Richard spoke with ET tonight.

    “I am not kidnapped,” Simmons, 67, told the program. “I am just in my house right now."

    “ET” reported that its executive producer, Brad Bessey, spoke with Simmons by phone. “No one should be worried about me,” Simmons said. “The people that surround me are wonderful people who take great care of me.” CNN cannot independently verify the “ET” claim.

    Late Sunday, a posting on Simmons’ official Facebook account said, “I can’t believe I was trending on Facebook! After some questions about my health and whereabouts, I’ll be calling in to Today Show tomorrow morning. If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to, I hope you’ll tune in!”

    “Today” aired a phone interview Monday morning between Simmons and anchor Savannah Guthrie. He said it was his decision to go into seclusion because “I just sort of wanted to be a little bit of a loner for a little while. You know, I had hurt my knee, and I had some problems with it, and then the other knee started giving me trouble because I’ve taught like thousands and thousands of classes, and you know right now I just want to sort of take care of me,” Simmons told Guthrie.

    While I hope he is truly okay,I do wonder about the motives of the guy that wrote the ebook and wants to make it into a play.
