Richard Simmons Breaks Silence, Posts Message to Fans on Heels of TMZ Documentary

Richard Simmons is feeling the love, more than 8 years after he disappeared from the public eye, thanking fans for their support and well wishes on the heels of TMZ’s documentary about his life and his disappearance.

Simmons, who hasn’t posted a message directly from himself on Facebook in years, broke that streak Wednesday, saying, “Thank you, everyone, for your kindness and love! ❤️ Love, Richard.”

Richard’s post comes just a couple days after the premiere of “TMZ Investigates: What Really Happened to Richard Simmons” on FOX and Hulu. An in-depth look into Richard’s life, his success and his disappearance from public life.

We’re told Richard watched the special and is extremely moved by the reaction of thousands of his fans who have sent well wishes.

While Richard’s official Facebook account regularly posts old clips and workout vids — usually getting a couple hundred comments — the direct note from Richard clearly had fans excited, with close to 5,000 comments in less than 48 hours.

Many fans’ comments included their photos with the exercise guru over the years with words of love and encouragement, with many emphasizing how important it is that he takes time for himself.
