Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Fitness icon Richard Simmons is doing better after being hospitalized on Monday for "severe indigestion," his rep exclusively told ABC News. "Richard Simmons was hospitalized on Monday at an undisclosed location in California," his spokesman Michael Catalano said. "After a few days of battling severe indigestion and discomfort while eating, we agreed it was best for him to seek treatment." ... Simmons, 68, who over the past few years has vanished from the public eye, signed a business deal for "merchandising, endorsements and licensing opportunities," Catalano announced earlier this month. Catalano told ABC News on April 6 that Simmons pursued the deal. The new venture comes on the heels of questions about Simmons' health in recent years, including a viral podcast on his disappearance from public view, titled Missing Richard Simmons.

When I saw this on the news I began drafting a ReTort post, but then decided against having it on my profile.

It seems like Richard Simmons is plotting a comeback publicity tour of some kind
