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

by Anonymousreply 301/27/2012

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.

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!

Cheryl, weren't you the original Mom of One Milliom Moms?

by Anonymousreply 2102/09/2012

I'm with R13-- he's a hoot and his class is a blast. And honestly, if I had the time and resources, I'd probably dress up like Barbra to lounge around now and then, too. Cut the man some slack.

by Anonymousreply 2202/09/2012

No one is saying it's bad - just unusual. Miss him on Letterman, and before that , Stern.

by Anonymousreply 2302/09/2012

Cheryl is my mother and a closet lesbian. Interestingly enough my genitals do not reek but instead emit a soft glow of good karma that uplifts all of those who are within a 50 ft range of it.

Richard Simmons is EPIC here:

Exactly. Old Southern gays like Richard Simmons and Little Richard tend to be "hush-hush" about their sexuality.

Complains about Letterman -

by Anonymousreply 3004/28/2012

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 3504/29/2012

Could he be anymore flaming? Anyone who still thinks he's straight after seeing these pictures needs their head examined.

by Anonymousreply 3711/25/2012

Damn, that is one hunk o' straight beefcake.

The jealous bitches here only wish they were half the man that RS is.

by Anonymousreply 3811/25/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3902/07/2013

Saw him on a clip from yesterday I believe-Wendy Williams show- hysterical as 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.

by Anonymousreply 4202/07/2013

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"?

by Anonymousreply 4302/07/2013

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.

Sorry, it's all an act.

by Anonymousreply 4802/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4902/07/2013

Look at Richard's single cover for 'Piece of My Heart.'

The song isn't that bad.

by Anonymousreply 5002/07/2013

Richard was a guest on Chelsea Lately tonight. Very funny interview. One of the best for both of them.

by Anonymousreply 5102/13/2013

I didn't see anything really bad about the video R48. I've seen worse.

by Anonymousreply 5202/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5302/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5402/13/2013

I saw a talk show once where he was introduced to Barbara. You could see she was visibly uncomfortable like meeting her stalker.

by Anonymousreply 5502/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5602/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5702/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5802/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5902/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6002/13/2013

Lighten up folks! I've been watching Richard Simmons' interviews for more than 15 years. Being a fool is what he does.

by Anonymousreply 6102/13/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6202/13/2013

I have no use for Simmons. What a cry baby!

by Anonymousreply 6302/14/2013

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.
