Richard Simmons well after weekend scare

Fitness guru Richard Simmons was rushed to hospital on Friday after exhibiting "bizarre" behavior.

We can all rest easy though as he has now been released and, according to TMZ, the drama was all because he was severely dehydrated.

He must have been pretty bad, as his longtime housekeeper called 911 because he was acting so strangely and was incoherent.

The paramedics even thought initially that he may have suffered a stroke, but apparently this was ruled out, and after being re-hydrated he was released from Cedars-Sinai within 24 hours.

This doesn't do much to reassure his fans and friends who are concerned for his well-being, together with the fact he has not been seen in public since early 2014.

Come back Richard—we love you!

American Horror Story: Freak Show star Ben Woolf has died at the age of 34 from injuries suffered last week when he was struck by a car.

Woolf, who played Meep on the hit show, had been heavily sedated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since the accident, and finally succumbed to his injuries on Monday afternoon. The cause of death was a stroke.

News of his death was all the more devastating to family and friends considering doctors had upgraded Ben’s condition to stable over the weekend.

Woolf was jaywalking in Hollywood when he was hit in the head with the side view mirror of a passing SUV. No charges will be filled against the driver.

His family told TMZ;

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben. He touched so many hearts in his 34 years."

Family members tell us they're planning a memorial service in Santa Barbara.

Ben's organs are being donated and will help about 50 people.
