That’s right, it wasn’t just a rumor—Chaz Bono’s legendary mom, Cher, showed up in the audience of Dancing with the Stars on Monday night. And after watching her son perform with Lacey Schwimmer, Cher burst into tears. This is big DWTS news, but it’s even bigger news for science, because I’m pretty sure Cher producing moisture is a scientific anomaly.
“She looked so proud!” a witness said of the singer.
This was probably the one and only time Cher was in a room full of people and someone else was performing. I’m half surprised she didn’t grab a mic and start belting out “If I Could Turn Back Time.”
During the show, Cher chatted up Courteney Cox, along with Rosanna and Patricia Arquette. Courtney and David’s daughter Coco was also in attendance.
After the show, Cher hung out on set where she talked with her family, including Mary Bono, Chaz’s step mom and the widow of the late Sonny Bono. At one point, Cher called David Arquette “darling.” Not sure why you need to know that, but now you do.
In other Dancing with the Stars news, Rob Kardashian performed a dance he described as “arrogant, masculine” and “brooding.”
“Cheryl [Burke] doesn’t get too frustrated with me,” Kardashian explains of his dancing partner. “It’s all about having that chemistry. I’ve known her since before Dancing with the Stars, so I’m pretty comfortable.”
Rob says that it was hard for him to get into character for the dance because, “I’m not real arrogant and cocky.”
I guess he just channeled Scott Disick and pretended the E! camera guys were there.
Kardashian says that Burke has been training him to act a little more macho and masculine during their performances.
“You've got to pop the chest up and have the facial expressions," Kardashian told Us.
Which is probably tough for him, because facial expressions aren’t exactly a strong area for the Kardashian family.
All in all, Rob has learned at least one DWTS lesson so far:
"It doesn't matter what the judges say. You've got to have those loyal fans and that support," he says. "I never think that I'm going to be safe any time. You always can be kicked off, so you got to just bring it every dance."
