Cher Won't Appear on 'Dancing with the Stars' to Cheer on Chaz Bono

| by Michael Allen

Cher supports son Chaz Bono's decision to compete on 'Dancing With the Stars,' but the singer's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said that "there are not plans for Cher to be at the show."

Cher was responding to a TMZ report that she would be in the audience for at least one taping.

She apparently prefers to lend her support for Bono on Twitter, where she has tweeted such gems as:

"As a culture we don't understand transgender, BUT, Imagine u wake tomm a different SEX! Try & FEEL it!"

"Leave MY CHILD Alone !"

"I'm So f--kng Sick of these PEOPLE! A person doesn't Wake up one Morn & say"I'm Bored, Think I'll Change My Sex & Expose Myself 2 Ridicule & Hate."

She also lashed out at Fox News' Dr. Keith Ablow, who claimed that Bono's run on the show would be toxic for children to watch.

Cher has called on her Twitter followers to launch an online counter-offensive: "Can u guys check out sites & give him your support? Bet VAST MAJORITY of people will LOVE CHAZ on DWTS!"
