The National Enquirer, a tabloid magazine, released a story claiming that Richard Simmons is transitioning into a woman and Simmon’s publicist quickly calls the news “bogus.”
The 67-year-old fitness icon was hospitalized for dehydration last Friday, but was seen with a full beard from a picture taken by TMZ this week. Paparazzi have also claimed that he also left the hospital with a full beard as well.
Simmons have been off the spotlight for 3 years and the magazine claims he has been undergoing sex change operations, breast implants, and hormone therapy during the years. A “friend” also told the tabloid magazine that he is now a woman named Fiona.
The cover of The National Enquirer shows Simmons with long, straight, brunette hair, wearing make-up, also wearing white lingerie. It all looks extremely photoshoped, because it IS extremely photoshoped.
