Richard Simmons and Wendy Williams Compare Notes on Hair Care (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 15th 2011 6:30PM
Richard Simmons came to 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) sporting a onesie that looked like it came from Dr. Seuss. After running around and shaking the rainbow-fringed outfit, he showed Wendy photos of his other favorite looks. There was the 'sweating to the oldies' ensemble, a shiny, silvery super-model outfit, and the Kim Kardashian, complete with heavy eye make-up and a bridal veil.

The conversation turned then to Wendy's favorite topic ... hair. "I have twelve hairs that I tease like a salad and spray it with Dove flexible hold ... that's all I can do," Simmons joked. Simmons' now-famous afro has been getting thinner and thinner as the years have gone by, and he talked about getting his first hair transplants at age 19. When Wendy, who also deals with thinning hair, asked him if he recommends transplants, he said, "Absolutely. I would be completely bald with a Gene Harlow (headwrap) and a big rhinestone." He then told the audience, "If you look in the mirror and you do not like what you see, then you've gotta change it."

Khloe Kardashian Goes to Richard Simmons to Lose Weight (VIDEO)

Khloe Kardashian working out with Richard Simmons, 'Khloe & Lamar'With a photo shoot pending and concerns about her weight on 'Khloe & Lamar' (Sun., 10PM ET on E!), Khloe Kardashian took to the world's most famous fitness expert. And despite being rich and pampered most of the time, Khloe actually went to him at his Slimmons Fitness Studio rather than bring him to her.

We're not sure if it was because the camera was on him -- and we all know what a ham he can be for the camera -- but Richard Simmons was cracking everyone up with his crazy motivational shouts.

"Get lower like there's a cookie on the floor!" he shouted at one point. "I'm not happy until your underwear's wet!" If laughter is exercise, then Khloe was getting a double-dose of fitness for sure.

Will the iPad change how we watch TV? Maybe

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 28th 2010 11:03AM
steve_jobs_slates_mosesWill Apple's new iPad really change the way we watch TV? That was one of the big questions that we were asking before Steve Jobs' presentation yesterday in San Francisco. I thought that since he was conferring with network execs to slash iTunes prices for TV episodes, that the iPad would have a major TV viewing component.

Now that we've seen the device and watched it demonstrated, the answer isn't crystal clear. But yes, it should have some impact on TV viewing.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I agree with those that call the iPad just a bigger version of the iTouch or iPhone. On the surface, it is. However, while it's true that someone might prefer a one-hand device like the smaller iTouch or iPhone to watch a show on a commuter train, you have to imagine a different setting for the iPad.

Richard Simmons gets way too close for William Shatner's liking

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 13th 2010 4:30PM
People seem to forget that there's a ninth hour of Today, hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. But maybe you should watch, because something odd seems to happen on the show every other day. This clip shows Richard Simmons and William Shatner getting, um, chummy on a couch.

Maybe Shatner should have gotten out a fire extinguisher.

Richard Simmons and William Shatner's Uncomfortable Encounter on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 13th 2010 11:00AM
On 'Today,' Richard Simmons and William Shatner had an uncomfortable encounter which ultimately prompted the fitness personality to walk off the set.

Simmons initially pretended not to notice that cameras were rolling and held Shatner's arm, nuzzled into his neck and mouthed the words "I love you." But then Simmons acknowledged his antics were being televised and moved away from Shatner, opening a newspaper and announcing a desire to thumb through the sports page in an affected deep voice.

Watch the video after the jump.

Richard Simmons visits Anderson Cooper 360

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 19th 2009 3:25PM
Have you ever noticed that whenever Richard Simmons visits a talk show, he makes everyone feel uncomfortable? Last night he visited Anderson Cooper and Erica Hill to talk about his new health initiative, and he started to dance around the studio, which made the two hosts laugh. He wanted Anderson to dance, but we all know that he doesn't dance! I think Simmons is a little too old for the tank top and shorty-shorts, don't you?

Seventeen random thoughts about TV - VIDEOS

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2008 2:17PM
Suze Orman1. I really enjoy Suze Orman's show (it's a major part of my Saturday night, which tells you a lot about my social life), especially the "Can I Afford It?" segment, where viewers call in to get her OK to buy something like a sports car or a Lear jet or a coffee maker. But I was wondering, what if someone called in and asked, "Suze, I don't have a job and I have student loans to pay off, but I'm thinking about buying 100,000 copies of your latest book, can I afford it?" What would she say then?

2. Two different TV shows in the past week, one a news program that had an analysis of the election and one a design show, used the phrase "do the math." I don't want to do the math. That's why I got into writing.

Bridgestone: "Headlights"

by JJ Hawkins, posted Feb 3rd 2008 10:00PM
This was the funniest commercial I've sen all night. There wasn't quite as long of a buildup as the squirrel commercial earlier in the night, but it was equal to if not funnier.

It started out innocently enough. The driver did a great job avoiding the innocent little deer chilling haphazardly in the street.

Then it got interesting. I couldn't quite tell what I was looking at, then imagine my surprise when Alice Cooper was in crouching in the middle of the road holding a snake. Okay, that was a little random, but I guess that's pretty funny...what could possibly be next?

Top ten F-bombs dropped on live TV - VIDEOS

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2007 1:00PM

Letter FThere are many swears that have started to make their way on to television, and I don't mean just HBO and Showtime. I've heard "shit" and "asshole" sprinkled here and there.

But there's still one word that's a no-no, and that's the famous four letter word that begins with the letter "F." It's banned on network television, and I think even on cable you can only get away with it so many times during one show. In the movies there are limits to the number of times it is used and the context (exclamation or verb?).

After the jump are the top ten videos of the word being used on live television. This Digg post lists the Richard Simmons clip as number one, but that's not accurate because they're outtakes, not live segments. Still funny though!

Funniest Whose Line sketch ever -- VIDEO!

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 5th 2006 5:51PM
richard simmons; whose line is it anywayFeeling blue today because you're back at work following a long Fourth of July holiday? Boy, do we have something for you. Some kind soul posted what has to be the funniest sketch ever from Who's Line is it Anyway? on YouTube. It stars... Richard Simmons. He's a willing (and eager!) participant in the game, Living Scenery. Ryan and Colin get to maneuver Richard and Wayne as props in their scene. If you're watching this at work and your co-workers are a little uptight, you may want to make sure they can't see. It's awfully sexually suggestive.

Video after the jump, baby!
