This week on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars viewers caught a glimpse of Chaz Bono’s rehearsal struggles. Chaz and his partner, Lacey Schwimmer, had a tough week overcoming Chaz’s aching body. Keep reading to find out what his famous mom, Cher, is doing to support him.
Although Chaz grinned through his fast-paced quickstep on Monday night, you could tell he was in a lot of pain. Chaz had a rough week of rehearsals, with his knees being his main source of pain. The Dancing With The Stars rehearsals are grueling, especially for someone who is not in the greatest condition. Chaz wants to keep dancing, and losing weight! He hopes the weight loss will help improve his joint pain. Chaz plans to keep chugging through the rehearsals, but will have a lot of breaks to ice his knee.
As most moms would be, Cher is very concerned about her son’s health. Chaz told US Weekly that Cher was very stressed out about his performance on Monday night. He went onto say, “she called me up and she’s sending her doctors to help. She’s just trying to be as supportive as possible.”
Chaz told co-host, Brooke Burke-Charvet, that he will continue to work through the pain because he wants to stay on the show. Hopefully next week’s dance the rumba, which is a slower-paced dance, will allow Chaz’s knees some time to heal.
What do you think of Chaz on the show? Did he deserve to go home last night? We know you have an opinion, so let’s hear it.
