Chastity Bono - Chaz Bono Voted Off Dwts

Chaz Bono was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (25.10.11).

The transgender son of pop legend Cher and his professional dance partner Lacey Schwimmer left the show after coming in at the bottom of the leaderboard when they failed to wow with their tango to the theme song from 'Phantom of the Opera' on Monday (24.10.11).

Chaz - who found himself and Lacey in the bottom two with Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy -was  disappointed with the judges' comments on his performances, including Bruno Tonioli comparing him to a cute, fluffy penguin while his partner claimed the people of "middle America" don't know anything about ballroom dancing and so are too heavily influenced by the panel in deciding who to vote for.

He said: "We were upset, not with the scores but with the comments toward me personally. We thought we did a good job [last night]."

Lacey said: "For Middle America who knows nothing about ballroom dancing, they look at these three judges and think they know everything there is to know about ballroom dancing. And when they make comments like that, it does influence how people will vote or support or view the show.

"The judges always have a favourite or two. We are just not that couple this season."

Meanwhile, Chaz's mother Cher took to her twitter page to blast the results and the male judges Len Goodman and Bruno, although she did have some praise for Carrie Ann Inaba.

She wrote: "I Have Got 2Hold my TEMPER ! MY Tears R OK ! Congratulations Chaz I'm SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Quest...& u Followed your Star

"Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out ! To the Gentleman?I didn't know who u

"We're b4 which I guess is a blessing ! Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT ! As for the Older Gentleman ....every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man !

"Sorry my Tweets came out of Sequence ! But u can figure it out if u try!Condensed version ...The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck (sic)"

Len Goodman is not a grumpy old man! Has Cher not heard of constructive criticism? She would change her mind if she saw Strictly Come Dancing, the original show that DWTS spun off from. Len is as nice as this Carrie Ann in comparison!
