Casting Chaz Bono in 'Dancing With the Stars' has apparently besmirched the dignity of a reality TV competition to some people, enough that Cher felt the need to take to Twitter to protect her son. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb read Cher's Tweet on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) and discussed their thoughts about Bono's appearance.
After reading a lot of hateful commentary from Internet commenters about Chaz's appearance, Cher tweeted, "bet VAST MAJORITY of People will LOVE CHAZ on DWTS ! & it's took (expletive) Guts 2! Chaz isn't exactly the 'Gotta Dance Gotta Dance' kina Guy."
