Richard Simmons has revealed the reason why he did not make an appearance in public for nearly a year. After months of hiding, the fitness enthusiast took to Facebook on Thursday, November 13 to share an update regarding his condition amid reports that a knee injury drove him into depression.
"I am so touched by the outpouring of love and concern I have received today," Simmons wrote. "I have had a tough time dealing with this injury, as it is keeping me from doing what I truly love to do, and that is to teach classes around the world. Keep on sweatin'!"
