Word has it that BRUCE JENNER'S two-hour interview with Diane Sawyer will be "a farewell to Bruce." Sources tell TMZ he'll "present himself" as a woman publicly for the first time, although not necessarily in appearance, as he won't reveal his new name, or dress like a woman on camera. Bruce will talk about his life from age 5, when he says he identified as a woman, and about the difficulties he's had living as a man but not feeling like one. He also talks about the impact his decision to have a sex change has had on his family. Bruce says he's doing the interview to both free himself from the stigma and the criticism and to educate the public so others in his position don't have to go through the pain.
