“Richard is enjoying life at home after a 40-year career of traveling the world and inspiring people to take better care of themselves,” Michael Catalano told the Daily News. “In response to 'the housekeeper is keeping him captive,' I can tell you that is 100 percent not true. It's ridiculous. Richard has always been someone who makes up his own mind (about) what he wants to do.”
