Cher supports Chaz Bono on ‘Dancing with the Stars’, slams critics

Who is your favorite?

Although not everyone is supporting Chaz Bono being on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ there is one person who is standing strong in his corner and that’s his famous mother, singer Cher.

While Chaz was speaking to Ellen on her show about the controversy surrounding ‘Dancing with the Stars’, Bono got a surprise call from his mother.

Cher slammed the haters that are giving her son a hard time, saying; “If you got that excess time and that amount of hostility, I’m not so sure that I can say anything to you that would make you change your feelings.  I don’t know that I would have any magic words to make you feel more comfortable and to soothe you into not being terrified of my child dancing on “Dancing With The [expletive] Stars.”

Chaz said that dancing was difficult for him at first, but that he’s beginning to feel more confident now.  He said; “My first dance is pretty good. The Cha Cha. The Quick Step gives me nightmares but I’m starting to feel pretty confident. We did it for some of the other people on the show today and they seem to really like it.”
