Cher to Chaz

I Got You Babe!

Cher will make a surprise appearance on "Dancing with the Stars" to support her son, Chaz Bono ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with both Cher and Chaz tell TMZ ... the criticism over a transgender contestant has given Cher even more resolve to stand behind Chaz.

Cher is not saying which day she'll show up, but has made it clear she will be in the audience for at least one show.

And, we're told, Cher's motive is NOT to drive votes for her son -- rather to make a statement of support and a statement against what she considers to be bigotry.

Good job raising your kids you freaky looking bitch. Oh and what's up with all the boohooing at Sonny's funeral and now you're dogging him? Are you crazy?

I wonder why Cher has had the change of heart. I thought, in the beginning, she was really against the whole Chastity to Chaz thing. I realize we all have the power to change our mids, I'm just wondering what Cher's reason is.

Love Cher, an amzing performer, but, I totally disagree on having her daughter on DWTS, she is NOT a star! and has profitted on her having a sex change, that shola been kept personal, and low profile. Just my opinion!

The producers knew she would appear. That's why Chaz was cast. If not only for the fact of the controversy.

A parent should support their child no matter what! It is really weird but when it comes down to it, you love them no matter what even if you do not agree or like it! It's their life!

This he/she thing is really getting on my nerves. If you don't want criticism for what you changed to - then don't go get into the lime light for heaven's sake. Media hounds both him/it and Cher.

THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE WITH CHAZ IS THAT HUGE UGLY FROM HEAD TO TOE THAT HE/SHE IS SPORTING. HE/SHE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CHOOSE HIS/HERS SEXUAL PREFERENCE BUT HE/SHE CHOSE THE WAY HE/SHE LOOKS. UGGGGGGLY

Cher, where were you last year when people were criticizing Bristol Palin's appearance on DWTS? When people were saying she was to fat and ugly to dance? That was pure bigotry. Where were you then?

I don't really see what all the flap is about Chaz being on DWTS. No one on that show introduces contestants by their sexual orientation so children wouldn't know unless they heard it somewhere else. And the entertainment industry has always had variant sexual orientation and that hasn't changed the orientation of the youth of America. Just let
Chaz dance until voted off like any other contestant. If you are going to refuse to watch someone on tv with a different sexual orientation, then you won't be able to watch sports, news casters, politicians and some preachers.
It's all around us. If you don't agree with it, don't agree, but don't make a big deal out of opposite life styles. As long as Chaz behaves decently and respectfully and conducts himself in a mannerly way, leave him along.

Uhgg. It is not her SON. It is her daughter. Chaz/Chastity was born without a y chromosome, ipso facto she is female. No amount of surgery, drug treatments or politically correct missives advising how we should describe transgender people can chase that. No dispense with this nonsense from your site.
