Forty-nine years ago, Melanie Diane Gilmore was born prematurely to gospel singer Zella Price and her husband in a St Louis hospital.

Yesterday, through the efforts of Melanie's children, the mother and daughter were reunited amidst tears of joy!

After some misteps, and following 100 questions and answers and a DNA test, it was confirmed that Zella was the biological mother of Melanie.

Bruce Jenner's Interview with Diane Sawyer Will Say ‘Farewell to Bruce’ - Watch Trailer

Posted in: , ,

So ABC has released the first teasers for the interview by Diane Sawyer with Bruce Jenner to discuss his progress to becoming female. Many people are blasting Bruce Jenner for his transitioning journey, but none of us is him or have lived in his shoes and clothes to know exacty how he feels. Let's not even talk about those who believe the problem is with Kris Jenner or the rest of the Kardashian sisters, saying the women have emasculated him to the point he feels like a woman. That makes no sense at all!

Personally, I think his coming out is incredibly brave and shows that his family is a stable and understanding group. We have to remember that Bruce Jenner has been an Olympic Gold medalist which made him an American athletic icon for 40 years. He has also been married twice and has six kids, so the road must have been rough and hard for him. He will discuss all this and more in the interview. See teaser below...
