Richard Simmons is not as reclusive as everyone thought.
The fitness guru hasn't been seen in several years and was believed to be holed up inside his Hollywood mansion, bu TMZ is reporting that Simmons has actually been out quite a bit, albeit in disguise.
Sources say Simmons often goes out in public wearing street clothes and a hat and no one notices him. He's also put on some weight and walks with a cane due to his nagging knee injury.
It was reported earlier this week that Simmons was hospitalized on Monday for "severe indigestion."
You've got to admit, if he's not in his short shorts and tank top, you probably wouldn't notice him either.
He clearly wants to be left alone.
