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.

Make no mistake:

CHAZ WILL NOT BE VOTED OFF AFTER THE FIRST SHOW.

ABC has great discretion in the show bible of DWTS to "manipulate" voting to ensure they don't lose a rating-grabbing "star."

GO CHAZ ! And good for you, Cher. A mother's love knows no gender. Chaz will have my votes. I admire him so much.

"Cher will make a surprise appearance on "Dancing with the Stars". How can it be a surprise if you tell us about it. EPIC FAIL media outlets.

Wow, vicious crowd! I commend Cher for standing up for Chaz, and Chaz for having the courage to be himself. Live and let live. Peace

I wish Chaz the best but I could care less about Cher. She post*****e filled twitter remarks all the time. Cher and her BFF,Kathy Griffin, are mean spirited divas with their own nasty tweets. Now that Chaz has received some bad ones from twitter too, she cries, "oh my baby". Chaz turned himself into a MAN so let him grow up and me his own man. As far as Cher, KARMA is a bitch gal.

Cher, nobody wants to see your fat ugly daughter on any show. Except maybe a freak show.

Publicity is a great gimmick when it works to your advantage! Among our group all I hear is how stupid ABC and Disney is for pulling this tasteless move....if there are any straight viewers left or any viewers at all...maybe next near Cheney, the famous fickle finger attorney, can appear as a pillar of the legal community....he can dance with Casey Anthony. In other words....DWTS has forever tarnished it's reputation.

According to the Daily Rash, Chaz Bono is being investigated by the FBI because they think he's an important figure in the world of organized crime. They think he could be a Mafia crime boss! http://www.thedailyrash.com/chastity-bono-suspected-of-being-mafia-crime-boss

I'm actually a privileged spoiled wealthy brat that was born into a working middle-class man's body. I'm so uncomfortable stuck in this poor dudes body. I'm financially dysphoria. Where's my pill?

The show is called "Dancing with the stars" and I keep on scratching my head because I still have no idea how this talentless fat ass has done to become a star. Can anyone tell me???

Has anyone noticed that Cher is looking an awful lot like "The Joker" (Batman). What a "Side Show".

Cher if you care and love your daughter so much why haven't you taken the time to help her lose some of that fat. Lord her neck is the size of a St. Bernard, it's not NORMAL. She is beyound fat she is huge ! The vest she wears buttoned makes her look like she swallow a cow. She is making a fool of her self going on this show. If it wasn't for you and Sonny she would be az nothing, no one would give the horse a second look. You should have taught her to get a job , not live off your coat tails. She has never done a thing with her life but eat. What talent does she have Cher? She is as big as a house. I would be ashamed if she was my daughter, letting herself get that big.She needs a doctor and a good gym.

Who care's if he or she or what ever . What I thought that your were to be some type of star. Dancing with Stars. Not Dancing with Stars Kids. What has Chaz ever done? What a joke this show has become.
