    Talking Richard Simmons gets in trouble

    Fitness Guru Simmons Cited for Slapping Fighter

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - Flamboyant fitness guru Richard Simmons was cited by authorities for allegedly slapping a man in an airport who was poking fun at his exercise videos, police said on Thursday.

    Simmons, 55, known for his tank tops, curly hair and exuberant demeanor, was ticketed for misdemeanor assault after allegedly striking the man across the face while in line at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on Wednesday night, police said.

    "He apparently said, 'Hey everybody, it's Richard Simmons, let's drop our bags and rock to the '50s,"' said Sgt. Lauri Williams, a reference to a series of Simmons's well-known videos. "Mr. Simmons took offense and said he had to 'bi-tch slap' him."

    The victim, whose name was not immediately available, was described by police as a burly man known to compete in the spectator sport of cage fighting, otherwise known as mixed martial arts. He told authorities that he wanted to press charges against Simmons.

    Police said Simmons cooperated fully with officers at the scene and later was allowed to board a plan to Los Angeles. Police earlier said he had boarded a Las Vegas-bound flight.

    There was no immediate comment from Simmons' Los Angeles-based manager.

    He'll cash in for sure. Maybe they should settle it in a cage match fight! Big burly dude vs. Richard Simmons.

    if he would have shredded him - and I am sure he could - I gues that would be c0** smacking him - lol then simmons would have pressed charges for sure and they would sue each other and the big buy would be seen as the aggressor as is the case usually and he would have probably lost in court.

    sounds like world politics eh?

    Pop quiz:

    If you're at the airline ticket counter, would you rather Richard Simmons:

    a)bitch slap you
    b)fanny slap you
    c)say you look fabulous
    You'll get fewer complaints from over performing than from over promising.
