Richard Simmons told HuffPost Live that he was rejected during his attempt to join Michelle Obama in the “Let’s Move” campaign, a program developed by the First Lady to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity.
“I’m just not their set of sheets,” he explained to host Ricky Camilleri. Camilleri suggested that perhaps the White House doesn’t want to be associated with the Simmons’ “flamboyant” nature.
Hours later, Simmons visited Fox News to join Neil Cavuto for an outrageously good time. One could only assume Fox News caught wind that Simmons was rejected by Obama and immediately brought him into the studio. It is almost impossible to describe all the details within this ridiculous pre-holiday madness, but in short: Simmons breaks down in tears, climbs over the news desk, suggestively licks cupcake frosting, pulls his leg over his head, breaks out in song, and waves to imaginary fans outside the studio.
