If you were wondering how BRUCE JENNER could manage to keep his sexual identity a secret from the family for so long, the answer was he couldn't. Sources say Kris Jenner has known since shortly after they got married that Bruce had these issues and they say his desire to transition surfaced years ago. They say Kris caught Bruce dressing in her clothes and that she wanted it kept under wraps because it would hurt the family brand. Word is that Bruce's sons are ticked at Kim Kardashian because they feel her recent comments about Bruce's journey were calculated on her part and that she stole his thunder.

It's time for Florida's Robert Michael Phillips to update his resume. Phillips recently cut off an unmarked patrol car, nearly causing an accident. The officer discovered Phillips was driving a stolen car, so he followed and observed him conduct a drug deal. When police approached, Phillips sped off, before fleeing on foot into a store where he knocked a woman down, dropped a loaded weapon, and ran out the back. When police finally caught Phillips, they found 22 grams of heroin, $2,300 in cash, 5.3 grams of crack, a drug scale, and hypodermic needles on his person and in his car. On the arrest report he listed his occupation as "drug dealer," although he can add resisting arrest, weapons possession fleeing law enforcement at a high rate of speed, striking a police animal, battery, and driving with a suspended license to his resume.
