Bruce Jenner To Come Out As Transgender In Interview With Diane Sawyer

6a00d8341c730253ef01b7c7429d1f970b-250wiBruce Jenner will discuss his transition from male to female in an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, according to CBS News.

Just last week, multiple sources confirmed that Jenner was in fact transitioning and would come out as transgender. The news came after heavy media speculation as to Jenner's changing appearance that included the publication of a controversial photoshopped image of Jenner on the cover of gossip rag In Touch showing Jenner with lipstick, blush and more feminine clothing. 

Jenner, 65, will also appear in a reality series that will follow his transition closely. The series will air shortly after his interview with Sawyer. From CBS:

The interview is slated to air in May, Page Six reports, with portions of it set to begin filming this week.

Jenner's transition is also being filmed for an unscripted series to air on E!, the network home of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" and other Kardashian-Jenner family shows.

"The world will see his full transformation," a source told Us Weekly. "It's a docuseries featuring the Jenner family talking about Bruce 'coming out."

Last week, Kim Kardashian told "Entertainment Tonight" that Jenner is now "the happiest I've ever seen him."

"I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right," she added. "I feel like that's his journey to talk about."

Hillary Clinton Sits Down with Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts: VIDEOS


Hillary Clinton sat down with Robin Roberts to discuss her new book Hard Choices and her interview last night with Diane Sawyer.

Hillary_clintonSawyer asked about her health, her wealth, Monica Lewinsky, and whether she plans to run for President.

Clinton told Roberts that she believes there were "systemic problems" in the State Department that, had they been known about, could have prevented what happened in Benghazi.

Clinton also discussed statements that she made to Sawyer suggesting that she and former President Bill Clinton were "dead broke" when they left the White House. Conservatives have pounced on them, asserting that Clinton is out of touch.

Roberts also asks about Clinton's concussion, her current health, and her relationship with President Obama and ties to his legacy.

In the second part of Roberts' interview, Clinton talks about sexism in the 2008 campaign and her refusal to criticize Sarah Palin, or anyone, for their gender.

Clinton says that she and Bill are together a lot these days and says that she has not pressured Chelsea about what she should name her grandchild.

Clinton also names her favorite Republican and the living person she admires most.

John Boehner Says Obamacare 'Law Of The Land': VIDEO


House Speaker John Boehner wouldn't go so far as to say that he and his Republican colleagues won't waste time trying to overturn President Obama's healthcare law, but the Representative did tell ABC News' Diane Sawyer that the signature legislation is "the law of the land."

"It's pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land," he said, before adding, "I think there are parts of the healthcare law that are gonna be very difficult to implement. And very expensive."

Asked, "You won't be spending the time next year trying to repeal Obamacare?" Boehner responded, "There certainly may be parts of it that we believe-- need to be changed. We may do that. No decisions at this point."

Boehner also told Sawyer, "We don't have a Tea Party caucus to speak of in the House" and insisted failed vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is not the leader of the party. Rather, he's a "policy wonk."

"He's involved in the cause of trying to bring us pro-growth economic agendas for America and making sure that we're doing this in a fiscally responsible way," said Boehner. "I'm glad that Paul Ryan's coming back to the Congress."

UPDATE: And, Boehner walks it back.

ObamaCare is law of the land, but it is raising costs & threatening jobs. Our goal has been, and will remain, #fullrepeal.
