    He has nothing to do all day in a big ole' house with a permanent babysitter and he gets that dehyrdrated?
    Reading Simmon's account, it does sound like he is slipping into delusions for some reason.

    It wasn't too long ago, maybe it's still true, that hospital stays for "dehydration" really meant "overdose"... I don't believe what he's saying bc my gossip experience is just to assume the worst.

    Either way, he seems like such a beautiful soul, I really hope he gets help for himself.

    Well. That would explain a few things I suppose.

    ^^^ yes, like why he would cut his masseuse out of his life, especially if he didn't think he would be supportive of the transition. How sad to go the course alone, but it must have been easier for him to do this without the Jenner like PR circus. good for him, if all true, and he is happy.

    That would explain a ton, I suppose. But like bootspaige said, it's a shame to have to do this alone. Especially given how much support and kindness he's given to others over the years.

    He's many many things, not all good, but big hearted is certainly near the top of the list.

    Richard Simmons denies transition rumors

    Richard Simmons has secretly transitioned into a woman named “Fiona,” The National Enquirer is reporting — in a report that the former fitness guru’s publicist is denying as “Crap.”

    Simmons has widely been reported for the past two years as hiding out from fans in his Hollywood Hills mansion. But the real reason is not that he’s turned into a recluse — it’s because he has been taking hormones and consulting with doctors about “secret surgeries” to diminish his manhood and augment his breasts, the tabloid reports.

    “He’s changed into a woman!” the tabloid says, calling Simmons, 67, “The New Caitlyn Jenner” in its latest issue.

    The transformation has gone well beyond just dressing in drag, as he’s done to comic effect repeatedly over the years.

    Asked about the story, Simmons publicist Tom Estey told the Daily Mail Online, “This is crap.”

    Simmons was photographed wearing a bushy beard as he left Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Monday, Estey noted.He’d been at the hospital for treatment for severe dehydration, his people insist.

    Randomness here, but first time I got drunk we ended up watching and participating with one of his Dancing to the Oldies VHS tapes. I'll never drink peach schnapps again.

    I know some here can't deal with Dr. Drew, but I trust him as a medical professional. Sorry for the caps below, not sure why that happened. This was from 2012.

    ‘Stop The Ridiculous Spin’: Dr Drew Examines Celebs’ ‘Dehydration’ & ‘Exhaustion’ Excuse For Drug Use

    One of my goals in choosing to participate in mass media is to help viewers and listeners wade through the nonsense that is fed to them and help them become more sophisticated consumers of media. As a physician one of the most transparent and troubling lies that I see spun from publicists and then distributed as legitimate news is when a young public figure becomes ill. What we hear from the spin doctors is that the young client is suffering from “exhaustion” and/or “dehydration.” Now, I am not suggesting that merely because someone is a public figure he or she is not entitled to confidentiality as it pertains to health care. Of course they are entitled to that, but please, stop lying to us!

    Just report that the individual is under doctor’s care and will be expected to return to work soon. Stop with the ridiculous spin. The public is too smart for this and deserves better. Young people run marathons, play competitive and extreme sports. They rarely need medical attention and when they do it is for very specific definable medical reasons. There simply is no such diagnostic category as exhaustion.

    Hospitals have very stringent admitting criteria that are reviewed by governmental and private agencies. This assures that hospitals maintain a certain standard of care. This is required for hospitals to maintain their licensure and standing. So they cannot admit a young healthy individual for being tired! Psychiatric hospitals are held to the same standards. There must be some identified medical diagnosis that meets criteria to need hospitalization.

    So when you hear or read that someone has been hospitalized for exhaustion or dehydration immediately read that as a lie. If this is a young person under say 30 years of age most of these fabrications are covering for addiction.

    After 30 it can be addiction or alcoholism but many times this is also a cover for a Psychiatric illness. Somewhat of an exception has been the recent example of Jason Russell, whose family stepped forward and reported that Jason’s recent public breakdown was the result of Reactive Psychosis.

    I am certain that this is in fact what his family was initially told about Jason’s condition and they should be commended for being so forthcoming and honest. The episode looked to have been a Manic episode related to Bipolar Disorder although it may well have been a reactive psychosis. The irony here is that Reactive Psychosis begs the question, reactive to what?

    This still leaves open the possibility of spinning this story as reactive to… guess what, stress and exhaustion. Reactive Psychosis is rather unusual and is more common in those with Personality Disorders or a family history of Bipolar Disorder. They are actually reporting something rather complex about his Psychiatric status but because it is anchored to story about exhaustion and stress somehow it seems more palatable to the spin doctors.

    Bottom line is that celebrities are no different from the rest of us. They suffer the very same psychiatric and medical problems that afflict us all. Paying attention to the reality of the lives that we all watch play out in public has the potential to teach us. Consuming media in a sophisticated manner can provide opportunities to teach our children by looking at the example of others. Celebrity stories can also be cautionary tales from which each of us can learn more medical and psychiatric realities of the human experience.
