Chaz Bono faced elimination on Dancing With The Stars on ABC after the Broadway performances this week. Chaz Bono was more upset over the comments by Bruno Tonioli than his elimination, and now Cher is speaking out about it all. Read on for more…
Dancing With The Stars fans watched as Chaz Bono was eliminated this week, after some very harsh comments by Bruno Tonioli, where he referred to Chaz as a “penguin,” and many folks, including Chaz Bono found it disrespectful. We knew that Cher would have something to say about it, since it is her son, and she is not happy with the way it all went down this week either. According to People Magazine, in a phone interview, Cher stated: “I just thought they were rude. And it was gratuitous rudeness, and I was just pissed off. I was just really upset. Not that Chaz was voted off, but that they were so disrespectful.”
Cher went on in her interview to chat about Chaz Bono’s transition from female to male, since many viewers were turned off to the show by this. Cher assures us though that Chaz Bono is just like everyone else and she added: “As a mom, you have a child, and then all of a sudden you have a different child. But you have the same child. And so, it’s very hard to kind of twist your mind around to the adjustment. But then, when you look at it and you’re around your child, you just think, no difference. Same child, different wrapping.”
