Richard Simmons Was Hospitalized with Severe Indigestion

Well, we finally SORT OF know:  In the hospital.  Or at least he was yesterday.  There's no word WHICH hospital, but it's somewhere in California.

Simmons hasn't been seen in public in three years.  His people say he just decided to take a break from public life, but there are many conspiracy theories surrounding his disappearance pointing at something far worse.
