Despite a past laden with naked photos, no one said much when Brooke Burke was cast on Dancing with the Stars.
But complaints have been pouring in from certain circles now that Chaz Bono, the transgender child of Cher and Sonny Bono, has been named a competitor on the new season of this ABC hit.
So far, both Bono's mother and Lacey Schwimmer have come to his defense. And we can now add George Clooney's ex to that list, as fellow cast member Elisabetta Canalis tells E! News of Chaz's inclusion:
"I'm so happy to be on this show with him. He represents a big community, so we need it on TV. We need to talk about it, we need to see people."
Do you agree? Where do you stand on the issue?
