While we only have a few days left until the official announcement of the season 13 cast of Dancing With The Stars on ABC, it is now rumored that Chaz Bono is the latest addition to the contestant list. Read on for more!
The official Dancing With The Stars cast announcement will be revealed on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor Pad, but in the meantime, rumors are all over the web about possible contestants. The lastest rumor is that Chaz Bono, the only child of Sonny and Cher is heading to the dance floor for season 13. TMZ said that sources have told them Chaz has signed on and will be partnered with a female professional, and since Chaz is legally a man now, he should be paired with a woman, right?
Chaz Bono, who was originally born Chastity Bono, was outed as being a lesbian by the tabloids, and he officially came out back in 1995 in a magazine cover story. Since that time, Chaz Bono has become a LGBT activist and spokesperson, and in 2008, Chaz Bono started to undergo a physical and social gender transition from female to male. It was legalized in 2010 after all the procedures were done and a court granted Chaz Bono’s request for a gender and name change.
