    FEARS FOR NO-SHOW RICHARD SIMMONS

    In the ’80s, flamboyant Richard Simmons was sweatin’ to the oldies, but today his friends are the ones sweating — about his well-being!

    His pals and millions of his fans are worried about Richard’s mental state, as the workout guru hasn’t been seen in public in two years.

    The 67-year-old fitness fanatic, who made dozens of aerobics videos and hosted the popular, Emmy Award-winning “The Richard Simmons Show,” is known for a bubbly, larger-than-life personality. But now he’s virtually dropped off the face of the earth, and friends and neighbors said that’s just not like him.

    “We have not seen him even walking around outside in years,” a neighbor told The ENQUIRER.

    Even the remaining patrons at his Beverly Hills workout studio, known as Slimmons, have voiced their worries about the dilapidated building that lacks air conditioning and has nostalgic photos and T-shirts hanging on the walls with pushpins and tape.

    “Hardly anyone goes there. There are only a few devout, elderly members of the gym,” said an employee.

    “You can’t even find a pen to write with. There are cutbacks. The instructors volunteer their time and don’t get paid, as far as I know.”

    It didn’t always used to be this way.

    Richard, with a wild mane of curly brown hair and skimpy exercise outfits, shot to fame in the 1980s with his Deal-A-Meal cookbooks and nutrition programs. His exercise tapes and health shows only added to his image — and bank account.

    But now pals fear the once-joyful celebrity who built a multimillion-dollar empire based on good health is in bad shape himself. Some even fear Richard is living as a shut-in at his ritzy Sunset Blvd. mansion high in the hills above West Hollywood.

    Neighbors said the trouble began after the end of a brief love affair that left him devastated — and his housekeeper and assistant were left picking up the pieces.

    One of Richard’s fretful neighbors just wants him to know how much he is loved.

    “We love him and we miss him. We are waiting for him.”

    I hope he doesn't end up like that woman who died and was just a pile of dust with a feather sticking out of it when a neighbor finally decided to stop by three years later. :eek:

    He moved into Charlie Sheen's place. That's why his neighbors haven't seen him.

    They trade tiger blood on the regular.

    I feel bad for him. Unless it's all schtick, he seems like a tortured soul.

    For a total recluse, his official Facebook page is remarkably active. From just a few hours ago:

    That guy also had a detailed blind item about Philip Seymour Hoffman's drug house that he used to get away from his family and how he forgot to pick up his kids at school because he was so wasted. Turned out to be 100 percent true when PSH died.

    Yeah, that doesn't sound like a crazed recluse. Maybe he's just settled down and hanging out.

    Hopefully he's not decomposing to the oldies.
