Richard Simmons was hospitalized this week with some gastrointestinal issues, but yesterday afternoon he was cleared to go home. But that proved a little difficult. At least to Richard and his
somewhat notorious housekeeper, who was behind the wheel bringing him home.
TMZ reports the paparazzi made things difficult. And yes, I see the irony in that. Not sure if Harvey Levin get that, though.
According to TMZ the house keeper drove Richard in his Range Rover onto the property and into the garage. Once there she feared photogs and noisy onlookers were on the property so she phoned police.
Cops arrived and found Richard and the housekeeper inside the garage and set about helping them in. They formed something of a human shield — and Richard threw a blanket over his head — and went inside the house.
All word is he’s ok, but the mystery of his recent bought of reclusiveness is left unanswered.
