Chaz Bono CONFIRMED For Dancing With The Stars!

| Filed under: InspirationReality TV


Ah-Mazing! He is going to KILL it!

We're delighted to report that it looks as though Chaz Bono will definitely be appearing on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, and according to sources, he's signed his contract, and will be partnered with a female professional dancer!

As he should be!

Such an incredible achievement!

Hopefully by appearing on such a popular show, he can help ease some of the stigma that many still out there have about gender-reassignment!

Start shaking those hips, boy!

We can't wait!

    i dont want to see this fat ass anymore then i wanted to see kristy alley…..has nothing to do with gender.

  3. 3

    I'm glad he got the gender thing figured out, he needs to work on the weight. seriously.

  4. 4

    Re: markho – I know really.

  5. 5

    The only reason you care about him is because he got a sex change Mario.

  6. 6

    Sonny & Cher sure did mess up that one….

  7. 7

    Kirtie was big, but beautiful and she could dance, Does Bono have a deep love of dance and performing? Or does he just want to prove he can slug around w/ a girl?

  8. 8

    This is getting ridiculous what they'll do for ratings..

    I thought this was a dance show not a FREAK SHOW!

    Who's next? How about "Wee-Man" from Jackass?

  9. 9

    Re: frrf – simple solution, don't tune in.

  10. 10

    have you seen the documentary "Becoming Chaz"? he's definitely not a good representative of trans people…. He just seemed like a depressed sad person that can't get over it. Its kind of pathetic and not entertaining…

  11. 11

    What a joke. Lets all pretend this is normal And by the way Dancing with the Stars is not called dancing.

  12. 12

    LMFAO…. let the circus begin!!!

  13. 13

    Chaz is gonna win the mirror ball trophy!

  14. 14

    Which of the lucky female dancers on DWTS get to dance with the handsome Chaz?
    Would love to be a fly on the wall, upon hearing which of the lucky ladies get to dance with this freak?
    Karina Smirnoff, definitely not.
    She'd tell the producers to go fuck themselves with their mult-iculturism crap.
    Lacy Schwimmer, yes, they would have such chemistry.
    Great Tango Chaz.
    Only Libs could come up with this big pile of turds.
    Looks like the anti-Midas touch of President Downgrade is catching on to casting all the freaks in the woodpile.

    That has to be a trip. The usual pandering comments about their partner.
    Karina Smirnoff: "Yes, I love dancing with Chaz. He is so wonderful, catches on to the new steps. I'm so glad he's my partner. Oh heaven. Lucky me.

    Re: Rohan – Obviously.

  17. 17

    Well this will be frightening to watch. I bet all the girl dancers were like, "Not it!!"

  18. yeez says – reply to this


    Yes, a Z-list celebrity appearing on a reality TV show should really easy stigmatization surrounding the idea of gender reassignment surgery. Yes, absolutely.

  19. 19

    This guy is morbidly obese. Sad. Gonna be funny to see him dance though.

  20. 20

    Well, maybe the show will help him lose some weight and in a direction of healthy living.

  21. 21

    Re: NotSoGay – Not a bad idea:)

  22. 22

    LMAO @ "As he should be!" You try too hard, Mario. Relax.

  23. tasha says – reply to this


    I don't see how Chaz can even be considered to be a man. So he's taking male hormone injections to deepen his voice and grow facial hair. He's had both his breasts removed. Woman with breast cancer have double mastectomys but are still considered to be woman. Chaz still has his vagina and has no plans as of yet to have it removed. That, as far as I'm concerned, makes he a she. Chaz is still a woman.

  24. 24

    And how is he a star??? I think Dancing with the Stars needs to refocus on the Star part of of the show, instead of getting people like this, who is only "famous" because of his parents, and more famous because of his gender. Its pathetic what this show will do for ratings. I don't think I'm gonna tune in this year. and sorry to say, I wouldn't be surprised if he's out within the first couple of rounds due to the fact that people don't agree with his life style.

  25. 25

    Sad that people can be happy with who they really are…

  26. 26

    can't WAIT.
    not a fan of the show BUT I WILL BE THIS SEASON chaz LOVE YA

  27. 27

    Chastity took private lessons where my kids took dance classes. She was so cute at recitals in her fluffy tutus and her mom sitting proudly in the audience just like all the rest of us. Sean Astin was in an all boy tap class with my son. Chastity grew up to become Chaz and Sean grew up to be a Hobbit!

  28. Wrenn says – reply to this


    Total freak…nothing more…nothing less.

  29. 29

    It's sad, really. Deplorable too. She's a psychological nightmare, fucked up to its core. There's absolutely no justification for altering one's sex. It's a scientific catastrophe. Humanity is seriously screwed if these abominations continue to convince others that mutilation is acceptable. What happened to being "born this way"? Accept your demons, be proud of who you are. Do not change because you believe it to be right, to be proper. Love yourself, it's that simple. Chastity/Chaz is a mental case, changing her sex (as if she ever could) will never diminish or quiet the hell that boils inside of her. She needs extreme therapy. She needs to accept the fact that she's unique, that she's special, but, unfortunately, it's too late. She'll forever be a freak and lucky for her, it was her choice to become such a thing.

  30. 30

    Chaz cut off her boobs but still rocks a vag…she's a woman…she needs help. I won't watch DWS anymore. They are exploiting a sick person.

  31. 31

    utterly, utterly, UTTERLY ridiculous. Or should that be rid no dick ulous. Any last shread of repect I could've had for it has disappeared as it steps into the fake gay staged world of Celebrity , Reality TV.

  32. Jai says – reply to this


    Good for him. I hope he has fun and experiences some success on the show.

  33. 33

    They seriously need to change the name of this show. There are never any "Stars " on it. It is just some z-list losers looking to make a pacycheck . . .As for Chaz, I am relatively convinced she became a he after her stint on Celebrity fit club becuase she just didnt want to lose the weight. EIthewr way he / she is very unfortuante looking, not a star at all and defintiely not someone I would want to watch dance. YUCK!

  34. 34

    That sick freak doesn't belong on television.

  35. 35

    male or female she's still fat. yea i said SHE!

  36. 36

    Okay..Can "Chaz" quickly get her GTL thing going on??? Like the least u could do upon making these unecessary changes is look decent. DAMN! And whats up with the wierd facial hair growth on her double chin?? Like the peach fuzz is EVERYWHERE BUT WHERE IT SHOULD BE!

  37. 37

    your blocking my comments again Perez…what happened to free speech.

  38. 38

    if she wanted to be a man then why so fat…surely a man can be muscular not fat basically is just a fat woman with a beard… at least she /he wont lose her his hair..
    that abortion is looking pretty good right now right cher? why why whyyy

  39. 39

    except 4 his mom he'd (she'd) be a total nobody…sorry, just not interested.

  40. 40

    Unbelievable! This person isn't a man. If you don't believe me, let's check her DNA, it doesn't lie. She's a terrible insult to women who have been forced to have their breasts removed because of cancer. They aren't men. She is just a very, very sad grotesque example of a mental patient with too much money.

    Oh, and Dancing with the Stars HAS jumped the shark with this pick.

  41. 41

    It's just going to make it a freak show. Sorry but gender reassignment surgery has nothing to do with being 'born this way'; it's a sign of mental illness. Sorry. I can accept and go along with most things but with this I draw the line.

  42. 42

    Good luck to the cast members! Always an enjoyable show. Looking forward to the season!

  43. 43

    Uggh, definitely not watching this season with this creature on.
    And I am not calling it a he, it is a she.
    It was born a woman and is still a woman.
    Take a DNA sample and it is still a woman.

  44. 44

    Wow thought it would be another season before DWS jumped the shark …guess it is this year and instead of a shark it is a humpback whale.

  45. 45

    O.K. - This is getting weird ! First, David Arquette, now Sonny & Cher's Transgenered son/daughter ? ! WHAT is this ? - 'Dancing With The Stars - The Freak Show Edition' ? !

  46. 46

    Again - WHAT did Sonny & Cher DO to this poor girll ? ! ? !

  47. 47

    Re: Angus8 – LOL !

  48. 48

    Wow. Just, wow. How is this setting ANY type of transgender progress in today's world? Chaz still looks very much like a woman. & I always thought "transgender" came after the reassignment surgery. Like…when Chaz gets a dick and males get a vagina?

    I agree w/whomever said "be happy with who you are." I don't have any problem whatsoever with gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transvestites… but I truly do think it IS a mental issue for people who feel they were "born the wrong gender." I understand political correctness, but to a certain degree. If people can be "born the wrong gender", who is to say they can't be "born the wrong race?" COME ON! These people need intensive therapy… not to be condoned for their "bravery!"

  49. 49

    That's a heart attack waiting to happen. Needs gastric by-pass to take that massive amount of fat off the body.

  50. 50

    I thought DWTS said they were going for a higher caliber of stars this season? CHASTITY Bono is not it. Alter your body, take hormones, legally change your name, and try to grow a beard all you want. Your still a female.

  51. 51

    So, was becoming a man just an excuse to guzzle beer, lay in a recliner all day, and eat several large pizzas a day? Oh, and I love how (s)he goes on Oprah and says "I don't understand why my mother can't just accept this. That's her problem. I'm happy…she's just gonna have to learn to accept it." Hey, fuckface: of course Cher is going to need time to adjust to your grotesque life choice. Selfish prick.

  52. 52

    Ick, I don't want to see him dance with anyone, male or female. Gross!

  53. 53

    LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

  54. 54

    DWTS has the right to put anyone on their show, but I don't have to watch it. That's the only way to stop them. I lost respect for that show a long time ago. For what reason would anyone want to watch Chaz on dancing with the stars? And why does she want to do it…she did what she felt she had to do to be happy…so go enjoy yourself Chaz…If you feel you did what you had to do/the right thing…why do you feel that you have to keep telling everyone? Who are you trying to convince Chaz…the PUBLIC or YOURSELF?…I call her "she" because that's the way she was born…I don't care what she did to alter that…she was BORN FEMALE and nothing she can do will ever change that. I DON'T HATE ANYONE but her being on DWTS isn't going to CHANGE MY MIND/MAKE me understand/accept her or her lifestyle.

  55. 55

    Re: KingBublo
    AGREE 100%

  56. 56

    Maybe when she was young, Sonny & Cher would have sex orgies at their home, and she saw all sorts of celebrities nude and high - Dean Martin, Farrah Fawcett, Lee Majors, Mackenzie Phillips, George Burns, Bob Hope, Joey Bishop, Johnny Carson, Pam Dawber, Esther Rolle, Jean Stapleton, Carrol O'Connor, …all those 70s Stars. This really played with her mind, and confused the HELL OUT OF HER/HIM !

  57. 57

    Again, WHAT did Sonny and Cher do to her ? ! ? ! !!!!!!!!!

  58. 58

    ….he has SUCH a pretty face !

  59. 59

    Sorry, didn't watch the show before and for sure won't watch it now. Seeing a morbidly obese person sweating and gasping for air while trying to dance is not entertaining. Shame on the producers for allowing this.

  60. 60

    Re: MeganKBowen – BEST COMMENT EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. 61

    Re: NotSoGay – lol

  62. 62

    They are gonna have to re-inforce the dance stage, just like they did when Kirstie Alley was on the show …and, also, have medics standing by with a defibrilator…..

  63. 63

    She/He has more chins than a Chinese telephone book…he has to iron his pants on the driveway..he had a suit made, and there was enough material left over to slip cover Phode Island..he stands in front of the micro-wave, and yells 'Hurry!'…he went to the beach, and people kept trying to push him back into the ocean…he wanted to be 'cool' so he had his one ear pierced, and out came gravy…he went to Canada, but the customs officials arrested him for drugs…they pulled down his pants and found 40 pounds of crack…small children stand under him in hot, sunny weather for the shade he provides….he really has to lose some of the poundage !

  64. 64

    Re: luvs2tango – Marc Balaz "Dragging Bristol Palin around the floor was a wonderful challenge, since she continually gained weight week after week after week. It was Brizdull that changed the credibility of the show with the introduction of cheating on the ballot."

  65. 65

    and why is he a star?

  66. 66

    This should help him/her with the weight issue…let's be sympathetic to his struggle….being born in the wrong body must be horrible…no need to make fun….geez…

  67. 67

    I usually watch this show every time it is on even though I say that I will not. Well this year I definitely am not. This is such a terrible pick for a celeb dancer. It is beyond ridiculous. Chaz Bono? Give me a freaking break. I say she has a heart attack before the show even goes on the air.

  68. 68

    Re: kitkath – You need some sensitivity training….don't judge…especially with a topic you know nothing about….Yes, it must be difficult for Cher, however have some sympathy for all involved…..Thank you.

  69. 69

    Good for him not giving a crap what people think! I admire people like that! Go Chaz!

  70. 70

    i actually think this is kinda cool. Glad he figured out what he needed to be happy…..don't know how good he will be, but I give the guy a lot of credit for putting himself out there, as I do with anyone who has done Dancing with the Stars. All you negative posters here, how would you feel if you made yourself uber vulnerable and were shot down by a bunch of people who didn't know you? You'd feel like crap. Stop being so narrow minded……it's ugly.

    i don't want to live in this planet anymore jajajajja disgusting…

    Re: KingBublo – 100 % agree

  73. 73

    I can't believe how incredibly Hateful most of you are! Chaz is a Person!
    Doesn't take long for the true Bashers and bullies to surface, does it. You all should be ashamed of how you're talking about him. He did not ask to be in the spotlight, but it was thrust upon him by having famous parents. He actually seems like a very down-to-earth, nice guy. Your comments regarding his weight are just another form of hatred and an example of why our young/teen girls Hate their bodies and choose to starve or shove their fingers down their throats, rather then have someone treat them in the way you're treating Chaz. "It is estimated that 8 million Americans have an eating disorder – seven million women and one million men.”
    And in regard to the Transphobic/hateful comments, I don't even have to tell you how bigoted you are, do I? Surely you know that it's not okay to treat another human being in the way you are.
    Please keep your hate to yourself! If u feel the overwhelming urge to spew this hateful b.s., when u open your mouth, instead of saying it, grab that pointy white hat off your head and shove it in your mouth.

  74. @v@ says – reply to this


    Getting to know someone different shouldn't make a mature person uncomfortable. My guess is that those that are uncomfortable with Chaz's status will tune in the same way they'll rubberneck at a car accident; but will end up liking Chaz for who Chaz is. It's your issue, not Chaz's.

  75. 75

    Re: Tonebutch
    I don't think the name calling is necessary/appropriate either but neither is yours. Calling someone a hateful bully because they are asked to express their feeling on website? They asked for the opinions and that's what they're getting. Some opinions may not be as polished/graceful as others, but non the less the person is expressing the way they feel. If Chaz didn't choose to be in the spotlight…why did she CHOOSE to accept the invitation to be on DWTS and numerous talk shows? She only has herself to blame by her exhibitionist behavior. She's doesn't seem to turn a chance down to exploit herself or her lifestyle. Is this a personal decision she's been contemplating for a long time or a career move? She's the one putting herself under the microscope. What did she expect? I and anyone who happens to disagree you or anyone else has a right to their opinions. So please don't try to make us feel like evil/bigoted haters because our opinions aren't the same as yours. Who's the hater now? Pot calling the kettle black!

  76. 76

    Would you please stop referring to this freak as a he? Sorry, but chopping off your tits and sewing on a fake dick does not make you an instant man. She will ALWAYS be a woman.

    dancing with the stars…. why is he a star? cos his mum is cher? what about chers laundry lady or her garbos? if you can choose chaz as a star then anyone can be..

  81. 81

    Re: hellozio – D.W.T.S. will likely tag him/her as 'a leader and advocate in LGBT rights' ! Yeah…right…..

  82. 82

    you can watch this VMA for free on the internet by clicking this website.. movieavenue.webs.com but this is unlocked for security purposes but you just need to answer the survey atleast 3 for you to watch for free… cool!!! click it.. atleast 3 for you to watch smurfs movie for free… cool!!!

  83. 83

    It's AMAZING to me how much ANGER and HATE is spewed out on here. It's not shocking, though. We live in a world where I guess it makes you feel better to sound like a school bully still? Would you talk like this in front of your own children? Calling Chaz names and saying he is mentally ill is truly your OPINION, not a fact. If you would EDUCATE yourself on Transgender people you might realize there is a lot more to it and saying horrible things about them only makes YOU look UGLY and DISGUSTING…not them!

  84. 84

    My parents chose my gender in the womb. Therefore I was born with male dna and chromosomes, but with a female body. The Lord has told me to transition to become the male He created me to be. If you haven't heard His voice on this subject, you do not know His heart! … Don't hate.

  85. 85

    She will always be a she to me (she has female chromosomes) and just because she got her sweater bumps cut off, does not change that. If I glue feathers to myself and call myself a duck, does that make me one? Chaz says she was a man trapped in a woman's body, a person down the street has trouble telling reality from fantasy, so what is the difference? Technically they are both schizophrenic by definition except one we are suppose to feel sorry for and the other we put in a hospital

  86. 86

    A. Do you have access to his medical records? How do you know what his chromosomes are? Regardless, there are many different conditions that fall under the label of transgender. Why do you cling to ignorance in the face of experience? Get educated.

    B. Who are you to determine that anyone is schizophrenic? You use yours words as if hate for hate's own sake has a useful purpose, but hate only destroys… Pray to hear the Lord's direction. You can be set free from hate, ignorance, and prejudice. Submit to His direction and He will teach you to love everybody genuinely from the heart.

  87. 87

    you people have no life at all its not a freak show. if you feel that way don't watch it. and everyone in the world have mentel illness people. to all the people talking bad i bet have no life but to be up on here and talk junk low life people. And why you people hating for the more you hate the more famous he get. Get a life and get over it. and the one hating are jelly you think he worried about what yall say it his life let him live it. yall have a life well not.
