Elisabetta Canalis Supports Chaz Bono

by at . Comments

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?


@ risk, THG alwayz single out celebs like that, it aint 2 many ppl that they dont hate on. I dont c anythng wrong wit ChazB. Being on DWTS!! & for the ppl that does have a prob wit it, they will get no where by living off of 'yesterday's' world issues. All of this, racism/discimination, n evry kind of way, is ridiculous!!!


Good for Canalis for supporting Chaz Bono. But I don't see why the author felt the need to single out Brooke Burke to illustrate what they see as an hypocrisy in the Bono controversy. Yes Brooke has some racy photos in her past, but frankly speaking, amongst former DWTS competitors, she is far from the worst offender in that regard. I won't go down the road of naming names, but suffice it to say there are former DWTS "stars" whose resumes have entries that make Burke chaste in comparison. Not that it should matter. The rest of the "stars" could be either porno stars or Boy/Girl Scouts, it is of little importance as Bono has every right to dance on the show.


who the hell is elisabette canalis? i've heard of c bono more than i ever heard of her. chers offspring and clooney's ex. abc you've gone thru the bottom of the barrel and into the flooring. just cancel the damn show and put it out of its misery.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
