Caitlyn Jenner Gives Insight About Her Transition To Blog Readers.

Not only will the Olympic athlete be honored with the prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award, but she’ll be joined by her children and stepchildren for the once-in-a-lifetime event.

She said, “I’ve met so many accepting people, including many through the ‘Ask Me Anything’ section on my site,” and even caused her site to crash after her first post. “I had all of the issues, but I was growing up in a very different time and I had no information,” she said. “After 65 years, here I was right back with the same problems that I had when I was 10 years old and I had to finally do something about that.” “It’s been both eye-opening and difficult to see firsthand what so many members of the trans community have had to go through just to be themselves,” Jenner said. “I hope to help raise awareness of these hardships so that it becomes a less painful process going forward.” Last year, Drake brought down the house with a hosting performance that included solid comedic chops, original music numbers and some self-deprecation. And that’s not all…all of the Jenner children will be making an appearance to support the reality star as well including Brody Jenner, host of E!’s Sex With Brody”, Burt and Brandon Jenner and Cassandra Marino. “However, being honored with this award, which is named after one of my heroes, is truly special. Before coming out as a transgender woman earlier this year, she was known as Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and reality TV regular on “Keeping up With the Kardashians.” McHale has perfected skewering pop culture and reality TV as host of “The Soup” on E! for 11 years.

As always, the annual event will honor achievements of those in the sporting world on and off the field (or court, etc.) and celebrate those involved in the way only the can. McHale’s other job, hosting The Soup on E!, sees him consistently skewer the network’s own shows while highlighting the vapidity of reality television. “I’m thrilled to be hosting the ESPYs. The show airs live Wednesday on ABC for the first time after 22 years on sister network ESPN. “Everybody is open to have jokes about them if I’m there,” he said recently. “The only thing you really can’t make fun of is the in memoriam” section of the show.

Just ecstatic,” McHale said in a statement. “After my stunning victory in the Iditarod this year by only using six Bichon Frises and a lamb, I think the sports world saw me as the logical host.” Those not familiar with McHale’s acting chops may remember him from the 2014 White House Correspondents’ dinner. While still in the early stages of planning and writing the show, which will be held at the Microsoft Theater, McHale said he had free rein from the network.

So yes, it figures to make for a good time, especially when one realizes the funny man won’t be alone—others such as Jimmy Kimmel, Rob Riggle and Seth Meyers will be along for the ride. That performance drew mixed reviews, as McHale’s barbs often hit a little too close to home for some while others saw it as exactly the type of performance those in Washington needed. Other than comedic acts—which are necessary as a breath of fresh air considering how oh-so-serious the globe treats sporting competitions—the nice thing about the ESPYs is the show incorporates the ultimate sense of fan involvement. Given the way the ESPYs typically tend to avoid brutally honest assessments, it’ll be interesting to see how McHale’s brand of comedy translates to the audience. “Don’t get hurt,” McHale said of his plan for the show, per Hilary Lewis of the Hollywood Reporter. “Because they’re professional athletes and they’re skilled, and they could kill me. Her selection to receive the Ashe award named for the late tennis player who died in 1993 after contracting AIDS from a blood transfusion generated strong debate online. “The reactions have been so extreme to Caitlyn being given this award,” McHale said. “You can’t deny in the ‘70s that Bruce Jenner was the biggest, most famous athlete in America next to Muhammad Ali.

Sheer athletic accomplishment definitely deserves that award.” “It showed me at a very young age you need to work your (rear) off if you want to be good at something, and you need to have supernatural athletic ability, which I didn’t,” he said. “I was really good at making the defense feel good about themselves.” The 43-year-old, who stars on the Yahoo series “Community,” loved the NBA as a kid, but after the SuperSonics left Seattle he latched onto the Seahawks, who lost the Super Bowl to the Patriots 28-24 in a wild finish. ESPN’s Maura Mandt provided her thoughts on the Jimmy V Award in a statement: “This award is a testament to the inspiration Devon and Leah are to all the families who are suffering from similar circumstances. ESPN announced Jenner as the recipient of the award the same week she was featured in a Vanity Fair spread that featured the full realization of her gender transition.

Notables include Best Male Athlete, for which 2015 NBA MVP and Finals champion Stephen Curry will clash with LeBron James and his superhuman effort in the Finals and J.J. Everyone knows Ronda Rousey and Serena Williams, but don’t forget about UConn basketball star and 2015 AP Player of the Year Breanna Stewart or Lindsey Vonn, who owns 19 skiing season titles and a record 67 Women’s World Cup wins.

He clashes with the aforementioned Vonn, Derrick Rose’s return to the postseason with the Chicago Bulls and Rob Gronkowski’s eye-boggling numbers after shredding two ligaments in his knee in 2013. There are no easy answers in the voting process, but it’s quite clear each nominee up for an award deserves the recognition headed his or her way this week.
