Richard Simmons made an appearance this week on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, and the fitness guru tried to help Chaz Bono overcome some of his physical ailments. Despite the fact that Richard Simmons looked sick in his appearance, his rep claims the star is perfectly healthy! Read on for more!

This week on Dancing With The Stars, we saw what appeared to be an ill Richard Simmons, as the frail looking star attempted to give Chaz Bono some help with his knee issues. Despite his thin and frail look, Richard Simmon’s long time rep told People Magazine: “He’s the healthiest he’s ever been,” and “He’s actually at the weight he was when we launched the original Sweatin’ to the Oldies. He is completely healthy, happy and fit as a fiddle.”

63-year-old Richard Simmons is currently still offering his signature Simmons classes to the public in his dance studio in Beverly Hills, and the fitness guru was thrilled with Chaz and Lacey on Monday night. Richard Simmons Tweeted after the show: “Thank you for your kind words about my cameo on DWTS! It was so much fun to tape.” Sounds like all is going well for Richard Simmons, as his rep also stated: “He’s happy,” and “Everything with him could not be better.”

We are so relieved to hear that Richard Simmons is not ill in any way. Keep up all your good work Richard, you are an inspiration to everyone!

    DWTS has become a show that promotes sex, dating game, popularity, weight loss, with all this touchy touchy, huggy huggy feelings, displayed among the contestants on the show with 3 stooges as judges.

    Simmons does look sick, is it anorexia? Does he
    still collect Barbie dolls?
