Cher Blasts Judges After Chaz Bono is Booted From Dancing with the Stars


By Michael Lewittes



Cher blasted Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman, the male judges on “Dancing with the Stars,” shortly after her son Chaz Bono was eliminated from the competition on Tuesday.

After first tweeting, “Congratulations Chaz I’m SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Quest… & u Followed your Star,” the singer tore into the two guys. She was particularly upset about Tonioli having compared Bono to a penguin before he was booted from the show.

“I didn’t know who u we’re b4 which I guess is a blessing!” wrote Cher, before directing her wrath at Toniolo, “but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT!”

Goodman, who had been in an heated exchange with Maksim Chmerkovskiy the night before, didn’t escape from Cher unscathed. She tweeted, “As for the Older Gentleman… every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man!”

Cher did, however, thank Carrie Ann Inaba for her “Gentility,” and said she was “beautiful inside & out!” The performer then recapped in a tweet, “The Chick is beautiful & Polite! The Men suck.”

Cher later noted, “I’m Good! Needed 2 Vent! It Would Have Been Blast if Chaz Stayed, but He NEVER Danced b4,so it was a Great Dream 4 a Great Guy!” What do you think of Cher’s diatribe?
