Chaz Bono and Ellen DeGeneres Decry Bullies; Cher Lashes Out at DWTS Haters Again

by at . Comments

Chaz Bono stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show today to chat about competing on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, and the hurdles he's faced.

While he knew that, as the show's first transgendered star, some people would have a problem with him, he never expected the backlash to be this bad.

After he explained what it felt like to be in his shoes, Ellen was less diplomatic in pointing out the ridiculousness of those (cough, Dr. Keith Ablow) who are anti-Chaz:

Later in the interview, they received a phone call from his biggest fan - mother Cher, who didn't hesitate to lash out, like she has before, at the haters.

"If you got that excess time and that amount of hostility, I'm not sure I can say anything to you that would make you change your feelings," she said.

"I don't know that I would have any magic words to soothe you, to comfort you into not being terrified of my child on Dancing With the F--cking Stars."

How awesome is Cher?

She did admit that she's worried about one thing: Chaz's dance moves. "You doing this dance is about as scary as you making 'the change,'" she says.

As far as I'm concerned, people who bully other people, just don't have anything better to do. Bill, your thoughts are way worse than a person who just wants to be "him"self. Leave others alone! And when you become "PERFECT", then maybe you'll have something intelligent to say. At least Chaz could have an operation to better himself. I'm not quite sure there's anything to fix you Bill!

There are some people in the Universe who court controversy. Are we to believe that Not for 1 moment did Chasity Bono (excuse me,Chaz) expect Not to hear some questions regarding "her" decision to go Dancing with the Stars? By all indications, she has been chosen to be a "guest performer" this season. Unless she plans on dropping out of "her" commitment to dance,she Needs to be practicing with the intentions of winning that Silver Ball Championship Trophy instead of making the talk show circuit because she feel picked on and unaccepted. The best that Chaz can do Now is to go out there, kick up her heels and be the best dancer she can be, and maybe by some show of her dancing talents, viewers will look upon her as Chaz the dancer instead of concentrating on her "private,yet very public life". PEACE!!

Holy Cow! Chaz is a real pig! Makes me wonder if dyke Ellen is putting the moves on "it" so Portia can have an extra playmate who can handle working that six D-cell vibrator of theirs.
