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.

The big question here is: Would Disney-owned ABC allow a male transgendered person who was now legally female to dance with a man? I don't think so. Two females dancing together on TV, even kissing on TV, is not so offensive to most people that it would be banned. But let two men do that and it is unacceptable. There is a massive double standard in this country that won't be going away any time soon.

Its her daughter, not her son. If you have a vagina you are a female. There is no debating that.

I can't get over how much Shiloh Jolie/Pitt looks like a young Chastity Bono. Seeing how Shiloh loves to dress like a boy, I'm wondering if she'll also have gender issues. At least now society has begun to educate themselves about this issue, instead of being stupid, intolerant and hateful towards people with gender identity issues.

I believe your statement or Cher's is better stated "daughter". Because that is what she was born. Man cannot change what our creator has created. Chasity will always be Chasity. OR whatever her name is. No amount of operations will ever change that. Why is the media, TMZ, Radaronline and the like so ignorant. Oh, you all want to be politically correct.

The only reason this "thing" was chosen to even be on DWTS, has always been, with the hope that Cher would attend and possibly even participate.

And the producers now have what they were looking for when they hired Chaz - they have her a list star mother on their show.

Cher, I've also loved you and I can understand supporting your child, but he/she is gross and not normal, no matter how you look at it....Just my opinion.......

Better be early in the season or she might miss her daughter's performance.

Cher doesn't make me feel sorry for her daughter turn son Chaz, to whom I have personally nothing against if that's the way Chaz choose to live his/her life. But whenever Cher open her fly trap all I can think about is how her own ignorance and bigotry against another woman she didn't know personally came shinning through when she gave her negative thoughts on the show ET. Cher's a hypocrite imo, in her mind it's okay for her daughter to pretend she's a man, dress/act and spin thousands on sex change operations then exploit ITS ways to the public for attention while making money off her twisted situation. But damn anybody else who choose to live their lives they want to. In fact, when this story first broke about Chaz, I read Cher in the beginning didn't speak to her daughter for years because she couldn't accept Chaz being gay yet alone wanting sex change, now she's preaching to others? Cher shut your old arse up! :D

Radar Online: Cher Slams 'Bigots' Who Are Attacking Her Son Chaz Bono

Oh great, Cher doesn't like "haters" having a negative opinions about her daughter oops son. But she's all to willingly and happy to give her hateful, prejudice, negative opinions and advice about someone eles's daughter and grandchildren's. What's a matter Cher, afraid Nadya Suleman daughters might grow up to be like your disgusting, confused daughter? UGH!


Perhaps if Cher had giving Chaz up for adoption years ago instead of exploiting Chaz on her show, she wouldn't had turned into a man. Some nerve Cher!!! You hate on someone else's daughter and you don't want people to hate on yours? Guess the shoe doesn't fit well on the other feet, hun? Now you Cher must have some idea how Nadya Suleman must've felt when you were being a total bigot against her.
