on a Richard Simmons tape??
I don't even like my picture being taken...I rip them up..
Can you see me running around trying to find every tape ever made? I would go crazy trying.
Richard Simmons came to Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida during the first Golf war. I was active duty at the time and stationed there/here. (I work here now as a civ. employee of the Navy). Richard came here to do a work-out with anyone that wanted to join in. I had the day off and thought, "what the hell". It was the hardest workout I have ever done in my life!! That man nearly killed me!! and I was in decent shape! But, damn it, I wasn't going to quit! Oh no...I was not to be outdone. By time it was over I was soaked, limping and determined to meet the little sucker!
Well, turns out he was going to tape a segment after the workout for a show...now, this is where I thought..."oh yes!! I am going to get in on this won't Mom just die!!" (She loved him).
So there I am standing there waiting for them to choose me to sit in a circle on the floor with Richard Simmons and talk about the Navy!!!
Who did they choose? Only woman that had husbands in the Navy that were deployed!! They had no interest in a female, serving her country during war time. I lost all respect for Richard, and the media that day.
And yes...he shaves his legs.
