Sweatin’ to the Richard Simmons mystery

What happened to the workout icon, and should anyone even be looking for the answer?

Long ago, in a kingdom far away, a magical king named Richard Simmons lived with two Dalmatian statues, an eccentric masseuse, and a (possible) witch. Then all of a sudden, the king went mysteriously missing. The eccentric masseuse says the witch is to blame. Can this possibly be true?

To get the bottom of it, Outline staff writer, Emmy winner, and former New York Daily News reporter Andy Martino wrote a 2016 story about the case. Now the podcast Missing Richard Simmons has the public interested in the mystery once again. So, for episode 86 of Tomorrow, Josh Topolsky sits down with Martino to get some clarification on Richard, his disappearance, and, weirdly enough, fairytale witchcraft.

Can the king’s magical friends break the evil witch’s spell? Probably not, because magic isn’t real and she’s likely just a housekeeper. But Richard, if you’re reading this, please let us know you’re okay.
