PEOPLE’s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman

Richard Simmons hospitalized… One year anniversary of Prince’s death… Will Amanda Bynes return to Nickelodeon?… Club wants $30K… and World’s Most Beautiful Woman 2017

Richard Simmons was taken to the hospital Monday to be treated for severe indigestion. His rep says he’s doing much better now and should be back home soon. Richard has been MIA for about 3 years, which has caused people to worry a great deal about his well-being. But sources say Richard actually gets out of the house all the time. He just doesn’t get recognized because he’s usually wearing a hat and regular clothes. He’s also gained a little weight and walks with a cain because of a knee injury that’s plagued him for years.

In honor of the one year anniversary of Prince’s death, six of his previously unreleased songs will be available for downloading this Friday. The EP is called “Deliverance,” which is also the title of one of the songs. In fact, the title track is now available on iTunes and Apple Music, but you can also pre-order the entire EP on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. The physical EP will be released on June 2.

Amanda Bynes seems to have found her way back to a sense of normalcy after a very public breakdown. She recently completed her second year at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and seems to be living a very quiet, happy life. So why would anyone want to mess with that!! Well, sources told Page Six that producers have been trying to reach Amanda about doing another TV show for Nickelodeon. At the age of 10, Amanda was on their show “All That” and went on to star in “The Amanda Show.” But a rep for Nickelodeon says they love Amanda and this rumor is not true.

Chris Brown was hired to host a party at a Tampa nightclub and was supposed to stay for an hour. But Chris got mad at the club’s photographer, punched him in the face a few times and then stormed out. He was there all of five minutes! So the photographer is going to press charges and the club wants Chris to give them their $30K back.
