Would there anything more like hell than having Richard Simmons gnaw and kiss your toes on national TV? Well that’s what happened this morning when CNN’s American Morning host Kiran Chetry interviewed him about the Csiro diet and New Year’s resolutions. Kiran, who was wearing high heels, had her foot grabbed by Simmons who began loudly slurping and kissing it.

Kiran, always gracious – if not wayyy too kind – awkwardly laughed while Richard shrieked as only he can do,

“Cinderella! It fits! Everyone – let’s have a ball!”

Kiran Carrie Chetry was born on August 26, 1974 in Kathmandu, Nepal so her age is 34. She is a CNN anchor on the daily morning show called ‘American Morning.’

    Personally, I continue to keep bad cholesterol low by avoiding so much crap and doing some routine workouts. Actively playing soccer, jogging, what have you.
