    Richard Simmons Denies He's Sick After Making Dancing With the Stars Appearance

    Richard Simmons shocked on Dancing With the Stars Monday night—and it wasn't for rockin' that shiny gold onesie.

    The '80's fitness guru, who appeared on the show to coach Chaz Bono, prompted speculation that he might be ill after some commentators remarked on his seemingly gaunt frame and thinning hair.

    So is anything wrong with Simmons?

    According to Simmons' longtime rep Tom Estey, everything is just fine.

    "He's the healthiest he's ever been," Estey said in a statement.

    Simmons showed up in a onsie he said he borrowed "from the Kardashians."

    The 63-year-old weight-loss guru is not only apparently feeling great, he's at the exact same weight he was when he launched his original "Sweatin' to the Oldies," his rep says.

    "He is completely healthy, happy and fit as a fiddle," Estey said. "He's happy, everything with him could not be better."

    Simmons was happy with the tips he gave Chaz, tweeting post-show about Chaz and partner Lacey Schwimmer's routine.

    "Amazing, Amazing Night!! Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey. #DWTS#," wrote SImmons, who currently runs a dance studio in Beverly Hills.

    Also supporting Chaz, was mom Cher, who tweeted that she was so proud, she broke her bracelet clapping after her transgender son's Rocky-themed performance, for which he received 7's across the board.

    "I KNOW THERE R PEOPLE WHO WILL NEVER C HOW WONDERFUL U R, BUT LAST NITE I CRIED FROM PURE JOY! U GAVE EVERYTHING YOURE ALREADY A WINNER," the singer tweeted.
