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?

Chaz Bono's joining the Dancing With the Stars cast gave the show major publicity, but it wasn't just done as a stunt or a favor to the LGBT community.

Based on what we know of past seasons and those who have made long runs on the show, Chaz - if he can dance at all - could be among the favorites.

Below, THG breaks down the prospects for the man formerly known as Chastity Bono (with girlfriend Jennifer Ella, below) and the rest of the dancers ...

Favorites: David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Ron Artest, Hope Solo, Ricki Lake

If anyone has the notoriety that they can utilize to gain interest and build fan support, it's Bono, who will be paired with a female professional dancer.

David Arquette is probably the show's second biggest "get," especially after his separation from wife Courteney Cox and subsequent bizarre behavior.

We don't know if either one can dance, admittedly. But assuming there's any kind of rhythm there, each could go on fairly sustained runs this fall.

George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis has joined the cast of the upcoming 13th season of Dancing With the Stars, according to E! News.

Officially, ABC does not comment on casting rumors prior to its official unveiling of the new cast, who will be announced on Bachelor Pad August 29.

However, insiders say the Italian model will be on board, unlike Snooki and Queen Latifah, who were said to be on board, only to deny the rumors.

DWTS could be about to get a lot more beautiful.

In June, George and Elisabetta Canalis called their two-year romance quits. Maybe he can be talked into sitting in at the judges' table this season?

Okay, definitely not.

Interestingly, Elisabetta would be following in the footsteps of Clooney's rumored new girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, who starred on Season 2 of DWTS.

Since his divorce in 1987, no woman has been able to hold George Clooney down. So it should come as no surprise that he and Elisabetta Canalis ended their relationship this week.

But a friend of the actor says the split was due to more than mere commitment fears: the model was making the actor crazy!

"She drove him nuts," the source tells Us Weekly, adding there was "non-stop bickering over little things" and Clooney was "creating distance" for months.

However, another insider reveals to E! News that the break-up was based on no other reason that Clooney being Clooney. The guy enjoys his single life!

She tried her best. But despite the efforts and beauty of Elisabetta Canalis, it's looking more and more likely that no woman will permanently hold down George Clooney.

After two years of dating, the actor and the model announced their split today.

"We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy," Clooney and Canalis said in a joint statement.

The news isn't unexpected, and should be exciting for both men and women around the world. The latter will line up to try and tame the handsome bachelor, while some lucky guy will have a chance to hit this body.

Elisabetta Canalis is the latest celebrity to plead for animal protection by taking her clothes off.

The beautiful girlfriend of George Clooney will campaign against fur this fall, when her official photo shoot is released, but she's already gone on record with her reason for participating in the ads.

"I was a kid, a little girl, and was watching TV at home and they showed a documentary. And in the documentary I saw how they killed little animals, like electrocuting them, drowning them, bludgeoning them. I was shocked because I was a little girl, but by that moment I thought that I would never, never, never wear fur in my life."

Go behind the scenes of the sexy model's shoot with PETA below.

This is what George Clooney goes home to every night...

During the final night of the 61st Italian Song Festival in San Remo on Saturday, Elisabetta Canalis got up on stage and performed a dance to Ciara's "Like a Boy." Based on what we see here, we no longer feel sorry for Clooney when he came down with malaria.

After all, just consider who was bringing him tea and medicine in bed. Yowza!

While Elisabetta Canalis is at the center of a cocaine and prostitution scandal, the gorgeous Italian model often finds herself answering questions about nothing but her year-long relationship with George Clooney.

Simply put, "there are some people who just don't want to see me happy," Canalis says in the new Italian Vanity Fair.

On the Red Carpet

Such criticism causes the aspiring actress - she recurs on TNT's Leverage as a character referred to as "The Italian Woman" - to feel insecure at times, but Clooney never fails to make his feelings clear.

"If you are loved then you always feel great," she said. "[George] reassures me all the time. He is very close. I feel more embraced than ever before."

Adding that Clooney has "given color back to my life," Canalis said she doesn't understand why so many seem so jealous of her relationship. (THG note: We know why. Just take a look at your boyfriend, Elisabetta.)

''I know some women, very high profile women, who have taken his picture off their computer desktop," she says. "Maybe I should not get so stressed over it. At the end though the best way to confront this envy is to be happy, but it's just that they won't forgive."

Up until now, Elisabetta Canalis has been known as the gorgeous woman on the arm of George Clooney for the past year.

But the Italian beauty suddenly finds herself in the news for other, far more sordid reasons: a fellow model (turned prostitute) claims she saw Canalis snort a couple lines of cocaine at a Milan nightclub in 2007.

Referring to a 2007 incident at The Club, an establishment under investigation for allowing drugs and sex, Karima Menad told prosecutors two years ago: "I remember taking cocaine with Elisabetta Canalis and two others."

This admission is part of documents obtained this week by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Canalis started dating Clooney last July, but Menad was referring to a night in December 2007 in her testimony, adding:

"We had been at a party of some famous, rich celebrity whose name I cannot remember. I don't remember who brought the drugs but we all took it."

The Club was shut down on July 26 amidst reports that women were brought in to entertain customers.

"Their job was to encourage these customers to drink alcohol as to increase the table's bill, followed up by sex off premises," said prosecutor Frank Di Maio. "They were often given cocaine for free by those who want to sit at a table of famous people... they want the visibility that comes from being seated at a central table, and to be seen with models, or celebrities from fashion, entertainment and sport."

Canalis is yet to comment on her alleged role in this scandal.

Katy Perry has been named No. 1 on Maxim's 2010 Hot 100 List. That is awesome for her. We are big Katy fans, and don't mean to discredit her here, but ...

Blake Lively is fourth. Megan Fox fifth. Marisa Miller is tenth. Tenth.

Last year's winner, Olivia Wilde, fell to 20th. Was she in an accident we're not aware of? What gives? How did the future Mrs. Russell Brand pull this off?

Perry is "a triple - no, quadruple - kind of hot," Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy says. "It's like that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking."

You buying that?
