One daytime show known for its medical opinion is spreading a rumor about Bruce Jenner – who now goes by Caitlin Jenner. There is much speculation that Glamour magazine will name Jenner the Glamour “Woman of the Year.”
The hosts of the show, The Doctors, speculated about a reported secret photo shoot with Jenner for the December issue of the magazine. Glamour isn’t talking and will not confirm or deny any contact with the Olympian or whether Jenner is up for the award. The annual award is to honor the year’s most inspiring woman.
Everyone will know whether the transgendered man will be one of the nominees when the list is announced on Nov. 3. The announcement will be made on The Doctors.

If Jenner is the nominee, this will not be a first for the magazine. One of the 2014 nominees was actor Laverne Cox, also a transgendered person. Cox was noted for his portrayal of a LGBT character in the show Orange Is The New Black, a hit show on Netflix. Other nominees were Good Morning America anchor and cancer survivor Robin Roberts, and Natalia Vodianova, who is a model and a philanthropist. The award went to actress Lupitaq Nyong’o. She won an Academy Award for her work in 12 Years a Slave.
Jenner, 65, became the topic of conversation after he and his wife Kris Jenner began living separately. Later, the athlete was spotted and photographed in women’s clothing and accessories. He finally announced in an interview with Diane Sawyer that he was going to transgender into a woman.
Jenner’s new look was debuted on the cover of Vanity Fair earlier this year and ESPN then honored the Olympic gold medalist by giving him the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
