Chaz Bono gets people talking about "Dancing With The Stars", because he is transgendered. The new series airs on 19 September.

This week “Dancing with the Stars” announced the lineup for their next series which includes Chaz Bono the son of Sonny and Cher, although he was born a daughter. The inclusion of a transgendered person is of course causing controversy, as have shows in the past when the inclusion of Bristol Palin and Kate Gosselin caused people to question the sanity of the producers.

However, selecting Chaz Bob, who is 42, is certainly getting people interested in the series which will air on ABC on Monday September 19 at 8/7c. Comments are being made all over the internet, with some groups claiming that the inclusion of Bono will stop the program from being a family affair.

Conrad Green is the executive producer who explains that they always try to choose people from all areas of life, and when it comes to Bono he said, “He’s a remarkably strong character. I think once the show’s underway, people will either root for Chaz because of his dancing or not. I think one of the joys of our show is you see a different side of people. You see them struggling to try and achieve something positive. You get to know them differently.”

It has certainly given people something to look forward to and to talk about before the show even airs!
