LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- He’s the son of Cher, but don’t expect Chaz Bono to opt for wild get ups on “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I’m a little bit more conservative than she is,” Chaz told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover on Monday evening, when asked if his mom’s glitz wore off on the 42-year-old. “So [I’ll be wearing] tasteful suits, nice lines, that kind of thing.”
Chaz said he told his mother about competing on “Dancing” recently and like a typical mom, Cher had a lot of questions.
“I told her via phone and her reaction was that she thought it was cool that I was doing it and wanted to know how I felt when I started, if I was nervous – all of those things,” he said.
The famous offspring was sporting a bit of a beard at last night’s announcement and he was proud of it.
“Thank you, I appreciate it,” Chaz said when Kit said she liked his scruff. “It’s the first thing I could grow, so I’m pretty psyched about it.”
Chaz said he is looking forward to taking on the ballroom as a leading man.
“It feels great,” he said. “It feels so good. I mean, it took me so long to finally get comfortable in my body and to be able to challenge it in this way, and dance with a beautiful woman, it’s gonna be a blast.”
The “Dancing” pro partners will be announced on Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America.” The new season will premiere on Monday, September 19, in a two-hour show, from 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.
The following night ABC will air “Dancing with the Stars: Meet the Cast,” which airs at 8 PM, followed at 9 PM by the first “DWTS” results show.
