We love Chaz Bono just the way he is, but if Dancing with the Stars helps him trim up, then we say go for it! In fact, it seems he’s already shed a few pounds courtesy of the rehearsal schedule. Read on for the details…
Chaz Bono is paired up with Lacey Schwimmer for season 13 of Dancing with the Stars and if we’ve learned anything from her past with Kyle Massey, Schwimmer is a high performance dancer. Maybe that’s why Chaz has already dropped some pounds.
“When I first met him, he didn’t want to do anything that made him look silly,” Schwimmer told People of her dance partner.
She added, “Now he’s all for it. He’s goofing off and he’s pretending to be Maks [Chmerkovskiy] in rehearsals. It’s really funny.”
Chaz Bono is so comfortable, check out how much weight he’s lost in the few short days he’s been rehearsing: “He’s lost five pounds in six days,” Schwimmer revealed. “It’s so great. He says he’s not eating any differently, he’s just dancing.”
With all the controversy surrounding Chaz’s ABC casting, it’s great that he has the support of his dance partner! ”He’s such a great guy. He is so nice, and he’s such a kind person. He’s awesome. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner this time,” Schwimmer gushed to People.
While performing to one of his famous parents’ songs is out the question for now, Lacey Schwimmer does hope to meet Cher.
“Chaz has already told me he doesn’t want to dance to any of his parents’ songs. But the show really wants it to happen, so we’ll see.”
Perhaps, I Got You Babe is in the future? Schwimmer added, ”Rumor has it that Cher wants to come to the show. So I hope that’s still in the works. I’d love to meet her.”
What do you think of Chaz Bono’s early weight loss?
