He broke down barriers and now "Dancing With The Stars" says goodbye to Chaz Bono.
Chastity Bono turned Chaz Bono after a gender transition, the only child of Cher and Sonny Bono, said goodbye to his new DWTS family this week. Chaz explains how important it was for him to break barriers and be on this show...
“I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man....I know that if there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different.”
Although Chaz said he was not bitter towards the show, he expressed his anger about harsh remarks by the judges.....saying that he gets angry when the judges compared him to a penguin and an ewok.
“Bruno [bleep] makes comments every week ... like I’m some fat troll dancing with this beautiful woman every week, and I’m sick of it,”Chaz vents.
Chaz wasn’t the only one upset by the critiques. Allegedly his dance partner, Lacey Schwimmer cried backstage during Monday’s episode.
“Every week he gets referred to as an animal,”she said.
“They always comment on his personality, and last I checked, this was a dancing show.”Cher was likewise unhappy about the comments, according to her tweets...she's PISSED!
“Is it ‘DWTS’ or looking perfect ‘WTS?’ It’s easy for him to take cheap shots at Chaz! Let him come to ‘my’ stage,’”Cher tweeted.
“I could teach his little arm waving [butt] some manners! Critique Chaz’s dance style, movements, etc. But don’t make fun of my child on national TV.”
Congrats Chaz! Just you being on the show was a BREAK THROUGH.
