Richard Simmons weighs in on 'The Developers'

While it's doubtful Richard Simmons has already finished reading my book, "The Developers," it is worth noting that he already has good things to say about it.

Simmons, who is constantly referenced in the book as a lookalike of one of the characters, Rex Burns, recently responded to the book copy I sent him at his Burbank location.

"Thank you for your kind words and sense of humor," Simmons wrote on an autographed photo. "You are a gifted man!"

In "The Developers," Sarina Metcalfe, one of the main characters, is overly attracted to Burns, who claims that Simmons is his idol. Metcalfe continues to veer back and forth in determining whether or not Burns is actually interested in her.
