Oprah's OWN is shaping up to be quite the diverse network.

The network has acquired Becoming Chaz, the documentary that follows Chastity Bono's gender assignment journey into becoming Chaz Bono.

The doc will premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival where Oprah plans to pick up about half a dozen documentaries for her new network.

Becoming Chaz directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are also producing OWN's Sarah Ferguson reality series Finding Sarah.

Chaz's documentary sounds really interesting. We're glad we don't have to fly all the way to Sundance to check it out.

Will U watch?

    Who the fuck cares about this fat bitch. She is still a woman and not worth even discussing



  2. 2

    *GAG*



  3. 3

    Who the hell would want to watch Chastity Bono's gender assignment journey into becoming Chaz Bono?… I mean really.



  4. 4

    LOL this is to funny. Oprah you are really reaching. One episode is all that is needed. SNIP!!! Done. Look at that thing. A fat female in a suite. looks like a huge fat Kevin James. So fucking grosss. No offense Kevin. Oprah isn't any price either. Her package is bigger then Mario's



  5. 5

    No, I won't watch!…disgusting!!!



  6. 6

    Wow. They'll have to get extra-strong load-bearing beams to support these two.



  7. 7

    No who gives a flying f…



  8. 8

    Sucks. Won't watch it.



  9. 9

    I can't believe Chaz is Cher's child….



  10. 10

    Boy that Chaz is a looker. God Damn, it looks like he caught on fire and someone beat it out with a wet chain. But again, something so ridiculous and pathetic is endorsed by you because…it involves LBGT issues. Shocking, just think, if us hetero's lost our minds every time an issue that relates to our sexuality was brought up. Oh wait, we can compare because it's not equal you want, it's special.

    she looks like a heart attack waiting to happen

    Unfortunately what I see is instead of doing an interesting and educational documentary that could help straights like myself see the trans-gender experience with "real" transgendered people, we will see a Hollywood fantasy production espousing Chaz's dream come true. He will wear designer clothing and wear a Rolex watch and in the end "get" the girl of his dreams. And everything will be happy forever.
    Chaz said he wanted to work in the business- then produce it for Oprah; get great writing, get (great) real people and convenience us this is a genuine quest that certain people say they have to take…let us marvel in the end and be happy for the real transgendered that might have a chance- for once- to experience happiness.
    Somehow I feel the Oprah machine will make it too glossy…

    Chaz has a game this weekend. Doesn't he play middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears?



  14. 14

    Who owns the rights to the subsequent species reassignment, where Chaz becomes Elmer the Safety Elephant?



  15. 15

    GROSS! I remember Chastity Bono as a cute little girl with golden curls. SO SAD! Who wants to hear about Sarah Ferguson?!? Didn't she recently try to sell out the Prince for $$. The guy who is the father and provider to her two girls. OPRAH should be ashamed. I'm NOT watching!



  16. 16

    Chaz needs to sign up for the biggest loser



  17. 17

    Oprah's golden touch is turnung brown like the poo that she is putting up on her TV Network.

    Re: Cashmere Jay

    LMAO. Seriously, what is she now, a man trapped in a woman trapped in a fat man's body? Gender reassignment is one of the most personal things one can do i think, and she chose to televise it? Tacky.



  19. 19

    Re: Swedeheart – it's sad but FTMs have a higher risk of heart attack from taking the hormones the rest of your life (they don't live long, most die around fifty) … so since she's fat TOO, she will definitely have a heart attack.



  20. 20

    Two fat, ulgy disgusting women.



  21. 21

    I'll ask again. If Oprah was born in Mississippi why isn't southern Miss even getting the channel offered even as a pay channel?



  22. 22

    I'll watch anything Fenton and Barbato produce.



  23. 23

    No because I find looking at Chaz repulsive! I don't give a rats ass about the trans surgery either - it's no excuse to be obese. He was too damn fat before the reassignment but now with that buzzcut looks ten times worse. A pinhead on that huge bulky body. He wanted to be a man, he became one. so why not aim higher to be a healthy man — and maybe at least halfassed attractive? If Mario can shape up, why can't chubbo Chaz?



  24. 24

    Will always see that cute lil girl that became something else…



  25. 25

    There are thousands of transsexual women way more interesting that this chick.The only reason shes getting a doc is because shes the overrated chers daughter!!!!



  26. 26

    I see that loss of appetite was not one of the side effects of the surgery.



  27. 27

    I wish Oprah was covering someone else who had a similar procedure. Chaz is a real jerk riding his mom's coat tails. He thinks just because he is Cher's son everyone should worship him as royalty and he must get his way or else his little chick friends will bitch. I won't be tuning in.
