Fitness guru, Richard Simmons, 67, has been hiding out at home for about 2 years & many are assuming that it’s because he is in the process of transitioning into a woman.  Simmons rep says that the rumors are totally bogus.  “Not true and a complete fabrication,” Simmons’ publicist said of the claims.  The National Enquirer’s cover featured a photo of Simmons allegedly dressed as a woman.  The report also claims that he goes by the name “Fiona.”  Rumors began swirling after Simmons was hospitalized this weekend for apparent exhaustion.  A rep for Richard says that he is “just fine” & was released from the hospital on Saturday.  After reports surfaced that he was being held in his home against his will earlier this year, Simmons told Entertainment Tonight “I am not kidnapped. I am just in my house right now,” adding “no one should be worried about me. The people that surround me are wonderful people who take great care of me.”
