Richard Simmons: Unstoppable Brilliance (Not Just His Shorts)
Body Oil, glitter, and shorts are on their way back! From fighting fat jokes to guiding us through airplane safety, the fitness guru is on a mission to change the world!Richard Simmons is a loving man who FIGHTS for what he believes in! Recently, he backed up Kirstie Alley after she was the subject of a fat joke by George Lopez. While he claims no malice was intended, Alley didn't buy it at all. Here is what the compassionate Mr. Simmons had to say:
"I am a big fan of George Lopez. I think he is a terrific comedian. I have watched many of his shows, and they made me chuckle...I was so sad to see the recent clip where Mr. Lopez made fun of Kirstie Alley's weight. I actually was shocked at what he had to say. And I felt very sad for him...Kirstie has been up and down the scale many times, and right now she is on an upswing. She has lost 60 pounds getting ready for her appearance on 'Dancing With the Stars,' and she will continue to lose weight because she will be on the show for quite a while. She can joke all she wants in response to Mr. Lopez's unkind remarks, but I know they hurt her."
Richard Simmons wants to ROCK your flight, as well as your world! Air New Zealand recently released a video with the fitness guru to help get passengers "fit to fly". Mr. Simmons tells you what to do when you fly. Of course, this isn't the typical boring airline video: it's a PARTY! He even suggests "ponying" to evacuate. Who knew that surviving a plane crash could be so much fun?!?!
I won't lie: I wanna party with Richard Simmons. Don't you?
