Everybody remembers Bruce Jenner‘s iconic Sports Illustrated cover from 1976, but how many people had this gem in their collection? The former Olympian, now 65, posed shirtless for Playgirl in May 1982, gracing the cover with then-wife Linda Thompson, to whom he was married from 1981 to 1986.
“Bruce Jenner: The Fall and Rise of an American Hero,” the headline touted. (Note the other cover lines, too: Anyone else curious about that “Perfect Man,” who’s “Part Redford, Reynolds, Reeve…”?)
The cover was shot six years after Jenner won gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, and two years after he was inducted into the National Track and Field Hall of Fame.
At the time, he and Thompson had been married for just a little over a year, and had welcomed their first child, Brandon, 11 months earlier, in June 1981. They also had a second son, Brody, a year after the Playgirl shoot, in 1983. Read the rest of this entry »

New York Daily News, Feb 8, 2015: Bruce Jenner Reportedly Blamed Paparazzi for the Crash, Sergeant Disputes that ClaimPosted: February 8, 2015
Bruce Jenner blamed a pursuing pack of paparazzi Saturday for a horrific California four-car pileup that left one woman dead and five more hospitalized.
The fatal wreck occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, with one-time Olympic gold medalist Jenner luckily able to walk away from the carnage, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Matt Dunn.
“He is not under any investigation right now as far as driving while intoxicated. Mr. Jenner did not appear to be injured in the accident, nor does it appear he was the cause of the accident.”
A 1-month-old baby inside a Hummer involved in the wreck also escaped without injury, authorities said.
The pony-tailed Jenner, 65, who is reportedly transitioning from a man to a woman, was fleeing five photographers when his Cadillac Escalade rear-ended a white Lexus, sources in his family told TMZ.
The chain-reaction wreck at 12:12 p.m. killed the woman at the wheel of the Lexus while scattering pieces of glass, plastic and shredded steel on the highway.
A witness told USA Today that photographers stood snapping photos of the shaken Jenner — who was driving the Escalade — in the minutes after the harrowing fatal accident.
“It happened so fast,” said Veronica Bermudez, an employee at the nearby Malibu Roadhouse who echoed Jenner’s charge about the chase by the celebrity shutterbugs.
“They (paparazzi) were here right away,” she told the newspaper. “How could they have gotten here that fast otherwise? I don’t know why they have to follow him, and not just leave him alone.”
Photos captured the actual moment of impact when Jenner’s black SUV slammed into the rear of the stopped Lexus. Jenner slammed on the brakes, leaving skidmarks in his wake before the massive crash, said Sgt. Philip Brooks of the sheriff’s department.
But the sergeant disputed the reports of a paparazzi chase preceding the wreck.
“That wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it’s always possible,” said Brooks. “We can’t confirm that.”
The reality show star and former decathlon champion became the center of massive media attention in recent weeks over reports that he was going to become a woman. Read the rest of this entry »
