Who knew America's favorite TV show, "Dancing With The Stars" would cause so much controversy? ABC sure did, and they are laughing all the way to the ratings bank.
Cher has now stated that she will be making a surprise appearance on "Dancing with the Stars" to support her son Chaz Bono. Chaz has currently come under a lot of negative pressure for appearing on the show from different groups that say his appearance will be "confusing" for children.
What's more confusing for kids is explaining to them why Elisabetta Canalis is famous. Try explaining to your daughters that if they stay committed to one man for several years he will leave them if they even whisper the word "marriage" and will go on to date wrestling stars but somehow in the midst of that heartbreak you can whore yourself out to the media and maybe end up on a reality show. Now, that is a role model! But Chaz Bono, nawww he's confusing!!!
You know what else is "confusing" about DWTS? Rob Kardashian. I didn't know that living at your sisters house into your mid twenties when you have a degree from USC makes any sense. No seriously, that is confusing...someone please explain it to me.
Cher hasn't confirmed which show she will attend but will be in the audience to make "a statement" against all the negative comments toward her son.
Cher wants to make it clear that she's NOT trying to drum up votes for Chaz, she wants to show her support against "what she considers to be bigotry" directed towards Chaz.
Chaz takes the high road and simply says, "I'm just a regular guy. All these ideas that children shouldn't watch me because I'm going to be confusing, all of this stuff, it's crazy and for all of the kids and teens out there with gender dysphoria, I think it's going to have a really positive impact."
"It's a much bigger deal to everyone else that it is to me. People who don't have gender dysphoria aren't going to catch it by watching me dance on television."
Speaking of controversy on DWTS, they airbrushed the tattoos off of Elisabetta Canalis' arms in the promo images for the show.
Damn, this show is trying to be squeaky clean.
Elisabetta has several tattoos of words and phrases on her forearms but they've noticeably been removed from the photos of her and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
Regardless, this is going to be a very popular season of DWTS.
