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.

Three cheers for Chaz for having the strength and support to weather his personal changes in the public eye for the benefit of sparking long overdue conversations. I'll be sure to watch DWTS with my children and answer any questions they might have, although, I'm betting my kids couldn't care less what's between his legs.

First, it's good that Cher can support her daughter during her identity crisis; that is just what Moms do.
Second, children won't learn anything from "Chaz" being on DWTS because they won't know the details of this woman's life. All they are going to know is that there is a big looking guy dancing with the pretty lady.
Last, the show is called Dancing With The Stars, right? Then tell me why "Chaz" is on the show because she is not nor has ever been a star. She is known only for being Sony & Cher's daughter who has had an identity crisis and subsequent sex change operation.
I'm just saying

DAUGHTER D-A-U-G-H-T-E-R. Vagina V-A-G-I-N-A. Stop playing the game of his poor mentally ill woman who cut off her tits.

The ONLY reason Cher is going to be on the show is to make sure Chaz(the liar and complete fraud as a truly trans-gendered person)will not be voted off so her fans can see her.
@TMZ: "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."

I say, lets all watch, throw up, and vote that abomination off first!

Pretty bold of Cher to believe her child will make it thru the first show.

There's enough hatred and ignorance on this board to crucify Jesus all over again. Chaz may not be the most handsome man (at the moment, though I love his smile), but you are ugly on the inside. You would be first in line to lynchings and crucifixions, taking your own private aggressions and disappointments out on someone who never did anything to you.


Shame on you.

We will NOT be watching DWTS as it nolonger offers a "FAMILY VIEWING EXPERIENCE" it ONCE did...

INTERESTING that Cher has had a TOTAL CHANGE OF HEART... she has/had NEVER made it a secret (in the not so recent past) that while she loves her daughter she could not 100% support the decision(s) said DAUGHTER was making... WHAT all of a sudden changed her mind? And SO COMPLETELY?

MEN do NOT have VAGINAS... at least no MAN that I know...

Way to go CHER!!!!! Every child should have this kind of support the Chaz has from Cher. The world would be a much better place.

people get a life...leave CHAZ alone...i am routing for him. I can't believe the hatred. Cher is supporting her child regardless. That is what mothers do and i would do the same for my kids. Loving unconditionally. He isn't hurting anyone...so people need to back off.
