Chaz Bono went to high school with Jennifer Aniston, but the activist suspects that if his teenage “Friend” does cast a vote or two during this season’s “Dancing with the Stars,” the actress might be torn on whose number to dial.
“I haven’t seen Jen for a while,” Chaz told Access Hollywood. “But, you know, it’s hard because she’s very good friends with Courteney [Cox] and, you know…”
Courteney, of course, has been rooting on her ex, actor David Arquette, who is also competing, but Chaz’s professional dancing partner, Lacey Schwimmer, has some advice for Jen.
“Say you’re voting for David, and vote for Chaz!” the pro said.
Chaz was saved to dance again after Tuesday night’s elimination ceremony, and his fellow castmates were elated he made it through, sharing their emotions in a way Lacey said she’d never seen before.
“Everyone has been so supportive of Chaz here, and they’ve been so welcoming. Everyone’s just been awesome and it was really cool to have everyone run over to us, because… that doesn’t happen. We’re supposed to stay on our mark and stand there, but it was really, really cool,” she said.
Chaz will carry on the competition, but he’ll miss one of his allies, Ron Artest – now Metta World Peace – who was the first star to get the boot.
“I’m going to miss Ron a lot,” Chaz said. “Ron has been really fun, he’s a great guy.”
