Richard Simmons may be transitioning into a woman. However, who really cares? If the guy decides he wants to become a woman it is no one's business except his. I don't understand the infatuation people have with celebrities. What ever the issue, I hope Simmons comes out of his hospital stay healthy.
Everyone knows Richard Simmons is gay, we just didn't realize he was into cross dressing. I won't believe he's transitioning until TMZ puts him on blast because they always seem to know the real deal. If he did decide to transition though, I would be happy for him because you only live once, so you might as well be the true person you were meant to be.
While the surprise that Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner pulled on us is enough to get one wondering, I do not feel Richard Simmons is taking that route. I feel his loud and wild persona was a cover-up for his shyness and lack of self-confidence. So now that he is aging he probably just wants to live out his later years in life quietly and more privately.
It has been no secret for years that Richard Simmons' health has been failing, so the fact that he took a turn for the worse isn't surprising and doesn't mean he's secretly transitioning into a woman. People should mind their own business and not jump to conclusions every time they have a lack of information.
