Chaz Bono took the stage on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars, but where was his mom, Cher? Everyone expected to see her sitting in the front row, cheering for her son, but she was nowhere to be found. Well, that’s not entirely true. She was on Twitter.
“WOW ! HOW GREAT WAS MY SON? ‘THE GREATEST THING, GREATEST THING, GREATEST THING NO MATTER WHAT! WHAT! WHAT!’ HES A WINNER ! I Was So Nervous (sic),” Cher tweeted after Chaz danced an impressive Cha-Cha.
Chaz Bono wasn’t alone by any means, as the audience looked on, thoroughly entertained by his dance with Lacey Schwimmer. His longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, was in the crowd, cheering loudly and getting emotional as she watched her guy make a bit of TV history. He is, after all, the first transgender contestant on the popular ABC show.
While there is no explanation for why Cher wasn’t there rooting for her boy, she certainly was watching him. She tweeted her love and asked her followers to vote. Perhaps she will make it to the ballroom next week to watch because, despite the controversy, it seems many people fell in love with her son. And he deserves to have his mom cheering him on from the sidelines!
