Bruce Jenner is headed to the ballroom...in heels!
According to a new report, the former Olympian will make his debut as a woman on Dancing With the Stars next fall.
He “wants his public debut as a woman to be very big, and there is no better platform than going on 'DWTS,'” an insider tells 'Radar.' “He’s taking a cue from Chaz Bono. Bruce was so impressed with how he handled himself on the show.”
As a contestant on season 13 of the hit series, Chaz was the first openly transgender man to appear on a major network television show.

“Recently Bruce had been in talks to appear on the current season, but the timing didn’t work out,” the source adds. “Since he is planning on undergoing a sex change operation this summer, the fall would be a perfect time for Bruce to introduce himself to the world as a woman.”
And his family, it seems, couldn't be more thrilled! His sons “think it’s absolutely wonderful Bruce is going to be on DWTS,” the insider tells 'Radar Online.' “Just to see Bruce smiling again is everything to them.”
