Richard Simmons Might’ve Given an Oily Body Massage to a Porn Star in the 80s

Is the National Enquirer really expecting to move copies in the checkout aisle with a story that, even 10 years ago, wasn’t a scandal? Richard Simmons, the sequined fitness instructor, allegedly purchased the services of gay porn star Bruce Headrick, who performed under the name Blake McDonald in films such as Big Boys of Summer and Butt Stuffers, “four fudge packin’ hours” of “full-on anal assault.”

How much did Headrick earn for telling this little story? A thousand bucks? Two thousand? For about one one-hundredth of that price (or the price of a few Enquirers), you can sign up to take a class with Richard at his Slimmons fitness studio in Beverly Hills — and actually do something worthwhile with your time.

      I better pick up the Enquierer when I go to the store. This is such scandalous news. Richard Simmons gay?? LOL Good to know the old guy is getting some though, even if he has to pay for it.

      This is old news.

      In 1992, pioneering gay porn star Daniel Holt told the Globe (? or one of those similar rags) that Simmons had paid Holt to spank him, and Simmons was wearing a babydoll nightie at the time. Holt then went on the Howard Stern show (via phone) and stood by his claim, hinting (but not confirming) things went further.

      After that, and until I stopped listing in the spring of ’94, Simmons, a habitual Stern guest, had not reappeared.

      Holt was effective in his films but it’s tough to watch them now while trying not to imagine Simmons’ hands on him.

      Blech! I mean, we all knew Miss Simmons was gay as a goose, but did we need to have a mental image of it? He’s got to be in his 80’s by now….

      Richard Simmons is an very old gay Queen. He never had a gym body, therefore I don’t why his excercise program took off.

      Richard Simmons probably has AIDS and had thousands of white cocks to go up inside him the last 100 years. He always had to pay male hustlers for sex.

      @Jesse Helms:
      Fool. He’s going to be 62 years old, does not have AIDS, and despite not having a conventional gym body, he has energized a lot of people to exercise and get up off the sofa. He has done a lot of good in this world. His sex life is his own business.

      No.

      Richard Simmons is the lowest form of celebrity: desperate to be in show business, but without a thimble-full of talent, the only thing left is to exploit the hardship of others, in this case fat others.

      He’s a bottom-feeder of the order of Maury Povich, but even Povich once had mild cred as a journalist, before he sold his soul for DNA/lie-detector tests, “out of control teenage girls,” and “husbands who treat their wives like slaves.”

      Face it, gay brothers, Simmons is our embarrassing Aunt Jemima till he sweats to his last oldie.

      @Patrick: Did I hurt your gay feelings? You must be a fat, old, ugly, lonely, and childless homosexual man. Richard Simmons is about 200 years old living with AIDS like Rupaul. You too have the virus Patrick and is ashamed.

      wow are you dumb.
      i mean really…. and your english sucks.
      you need to study up on when to use plurals, and proper use of past tense…

      plus, and I know this might be difficult for you- but you could think of something more original than the same tired homophobic insults

      @dvlaries: Exploit? I would like to think he helped a bunch of overweight people. Of course, the best testimony or criticism would be from those who actually needed his help and went to his studio, bought his tapes, etc.

      Who among us has NOT given an oily body massage to a pôrnstar at some point ?!

      Ok, I haven’t. But this guy *has* helped a lot of people. He is fierce.

      Look at the before & after photos of him [actually, you may not want to do that, being honest, but you should]

      Despite being the punchline of many bad & mean jokes he has kept up his mission to help inspire people to lose weight for a long time. He wasn’t selling surguries or detox diets or miracle cures. He was preaching the value of exercise & watching what you eat.

      Compare him to Dr Phil who despite being overweight sold all kinds of sham products [and got sued for it -- there is some justice.]

      Let’s not pick on him for doing some good no matter how corny he might seem to some people.

      Queerty, what’s the point of having a “Flag the comment” option if it’s not correctly enabled?

      There are plenty of comments here that are completely inapropriate and should be removed since they are only written to push people’s buttons and are not contributing anything relevant to the discussion.

      There’s a big difference between freedom of speech and HATE speech. Way to run a “pro-gay” media property!

      @PLAYS WILL WITH OTHERS: Yeppers, I keep getting posts thrown into the sad slow he££ that is ‘MODERATION’ and yet Jason Helms gets to rant freely about us.

      The subversive COUNTER-measure is for everyone to post under its screen-name to drown it out. We could have a full-scale revolt on our hands…..

      Richard Simmons is a 200 year old gay troll that paid for sex with a young male prostitute. This old gueen will end up in a cemetery soon because I know she has AIDS like Rock Hudson.

      @Jesse Helms:

      You do nothing but sit in your apt. all day and think about “The Gays” don’t you? Obsessive, it is obvious that you are gay and terrified. You do realize that coming on here and continually attacking gays doesn’t make you look straight. Straight men are bored by sites like this. The only people that get upset by them are cloested gays.

      @Cam, you are so wrong fool. I am already dead and I don’t live in an apartment. I live in an cemetery in Raleigh, North Carolina. You know nothing about straight men or what we think and how we live. You are a fruit cake and take a man’s private part up your do do hole. That’s nasty! You and this 200 year old Queen will make a good couple.
