Anyone else know about his Barb Streisand fetish ? I don't mean just another
queen, who worships her. He has a room in his home thats like a museum. But a friend, who used to 'escort' went to his house once, many years ago, and was instructed by RS's assistant, to call him "Barbra". When he showed up, RS came down the stairway, dressed as Babs, in chiffon gown, and 'Clear
Day' syle wig. A table was set for the 2 of them, for dinner, and RS just pretended he was BS , the whole evening, as my friend did his duty, and called RS "Barbra". After, they went upstairs, and RS got plugged, as my friend kept whispering ' Barbra, you're beautiful',etc. Said it was the most bizarre evening of his life. He quit that business, not long after.
I had heard that too, but thought it was a joke
Don't think it's any joke. Heard the same thing from a make-up man years ago. He had seen the Barbra 'shrine' in his house, and told a similar story
about the escorts, coming to 'Barbra's home'. By the way , drive by his home, on Belfast Dr., everyday, and imagine RS at the front door, in Barbra hair,make-up, gown , standing in the doorway. By the way, beautiful place.
SO Straight! Nah, I can't even kid about THAT one!!!
But Cheryl, does his pussy stink?
His pussy stank does not matter because he is all tranny!
I smell minty fresh, R6!
What the he'll is everyone talking about ?
Oh fuckin dear R9
He smells like Skittles.
Who .....Simmons ??? Who's Chavreaux ?
snark all you want, gays! he´s a nice man with a gorgeous home and killer legs and butt for a man his age.
If any of you flyovers are ever in LA, check him out at his Slimmons studio in Beverly Hills. Great fun!
wehoi boi, on the runway of LIFE!
I'm the spawn of Cheryl. Please try to follow along dear.
Who is Cheryl please ?
Cheryl is the Michfest God duh!
I am NOT a lesbian. I like the penis. Everyone here should refer to their Datalounge manual.
I'm not a Howard Stern listener, so I don't know the details of his history with Simmons. But I heard his recent appearance on the show (probably someone here linked to it), and he seems like a total lunatic. He vacillated from sobbing over how much he loved and missed Howard to screeching songs and giggling. It's like he was channeling Eartha Kitt.
If the Barbra story was true, it wouldn't be a surprise.
Richard Simmon has been replaced by the new generation already......
"It would be nice if Richard Simmons officially came out."
Oh please, let's maintain a gossamer-thin veil of plausible deniability over Ms. Simmons' well-used hole, otherwise my Grammy will die of shock.
He used to hold great exercise classes at General Hospital about 30 years ago.
Could he be anymore flaming? Anyone who still thinks he's straight after seeing these pictures needs their head examined.
Damn, that is one hunk o' straight beefcake.
The jealous bitches here only wish they were half the man that RS is.
OMG! Sir Richard is releasing a beautiful little soliloquy for American soldiers! Did one of his grunt paramours get shipped out after schtupping our beloved butch beefcake fitness guru?
But that can't be since he has never declared himself as...fey. I mean it took Jim Nabors forevvvver to officially come out, so why should our little Dickie do it? It's not like it's required or anything, right? He gets a pass, right?
Anyway, check out the waterworks in the vid. He is [italic][bold]the[/italic][/bold] biggest Mary that ever Maryed! And I have no idea how that interviewer chick kept such a straight (pardon the fun) face. It was like she was watching a faces of death episode happen right before her eyes. Eeek.
Saw him on a clip from yesterday I believe-Wendy Williams show- hysterical as usual...love when he hust improvises and love that he wears support panty hose now...a gay treasure that would certainly be the center square if they brought back Hollywood Squares....or at least a regular like Madam was!
Love the comments at the link! LOL
r13, please check up on other instances of "killer legs and butt for a man his age" before making such claims about Ms. Simmons.
Anyone here ever met him? I get the impression he's a good guy who cares about helping people improve their lives through weight loss. Genuine or "marketing"?
I saw him yesterday on Wendy. He's so sweet & kind. There's no way he is not genuine, it really seems like he cares about people.
[quote]It would be nice if Richard Simmons officially came out.
Nice? To what universe would that festering pustule be a welcome addition?
[quote]Old Southern gays like Richard Simmons and Little Richard tend to be "hush-hush" about their sexuality.
Really? I'd never heard that.
Lindsay Graham, R-Closet
He embarrasses me and makes me feel VERY uncomfortable.
[quote]He's so sweet & kind. There's no way he is not genuine, it really seems like he cares about people.
Sorry, it's all an act.
According to Howard, didn't he used to hire escorts and have them dress as sailors? He seems rather like an asexual buffoon, but that's probably just his shtick. Most likely he's a voracious bottom who's lucky to still be alive.
Look at Richard's single cover for 'Piece of My Heart.'
The song isn't that bad.
Richard was a guest on Chelsea Lately tonight. Very funny interview. One of the best for both of them.
I didn't see anything really bad about the video R48. I've seen worse.
Richard gives us all a bad name. Yes, I know its a shtick, kind of. But still most of middle America who voted against gay marriage picture Richard Simmons as all gays.
I used to see him every once and a while when I lived in Hollywood. Usually in his jeep on the way to West Hollywood bars on Santa Monica Blvd.
Always checking himself out, fluffing up his wig, then looking in the mirror to see if anyone knows who he is.
Pretty much your shallow queen with no looks and lots of money.
I saw a talk show once where he was introduced to Barbara. You could see she was visibly uncomfortable like meeting her stalker.
Are you all elder gays who grew up in the closet? I don't think he is funny. No way is he remotely attractive. He is what I don't want to become when I get to that age.
I always thought he was a phony. Sometimes when he cries for those fat ladies you see him going through the motions, but there are no tears. He seems really fake. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think he plays it up for the cameras.
R51 is being facetious I hope.
I knew it would be bad when she had to push him away from her, after the initial greeting hug.
He acted as if he were on drugs, and Handler asked him what he was on, as he babbled gibberish, tried to kiss her on the mouth, and hopped around the stage. She finally told him it was one of the most difficult interviews she's done.
Not funny but rather desperate and pathetic.
Well, Handler is a harridan zero talent whore so the only thing sad is that Simmons would have agreed to go on her show to let that cunt mock HIM. He stepped way way down in class and that's SAYING something.
Nope, you're flat wrong. She tried to calm him down by assuring him she wasn't going to make fun of him.
As it turned out, she didn't need to. He made a complete ass of himself.
His antics have lost whatever "humor" they once had and he now seems to be suffering from dementia--senile, drug-induced, or both.
Lighten up folks! I've been watching Richard Simmons' interviews for more than 15 years. Being a fool is what he does.
Richard Simmons has always made me cringe. He's basically a walking stereotype and what ignorant people think all gay men are like. He's basically a gay minstrel show.
When I was growing up in the 1980s Richard Simmons was one of the only gay men you ever saw on tv - and he was on tv a lot back then. I already knew I was gay, and he scared the hell out of me because I thought he was what all gay men were like. I knew I didn't act like that and I really thought I was the only one who didn't. I was nervous about the future, because I actually thought that when I got out in the world and met other gay guys, they were all going to be flaming swishes like Simmons. It's funny now, but back then it was a real fear of mine.
I have no use for Simmons. What a cry baby!
Bill Shatner, Hollywood, U.S.A.
A friend was a limo driver for him years and years back. He said that Simmons was so quiet he had to check to make sure he was in the back. Very shy and polite but when he got out of the limo, he turned it on and became the queen we all know and love.
