With many controversies regarding its cast, "Dancing with the Stars" claims it has "the most surprising" line-up ever in a promo for the thirteenth round. Cher's son Chaz Bono is referred to as "the most unexpected", possibly for gaining many negative comments since his participation on the dancing competition was officially announced.
The promo also features the king of "Scream" David Arquette, soap real-life hero J.R. Martinez, reality sweetheart Kristin Cavallari, and the pop princess Chynna Phillips. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian's younger brother Rob Kardashian is dubbed the prince of reality, and Nancy Grace is called the courtroom queen.
"DWTS" received backlash for casting transgender Chaz for the new season, being accused of pushing homosexual agenda. Executive producer Conrad Green has denied this, claiming that "what we try to do is reflect a broad range of the entertainment world in the casting of the show."
An insider recently revealed producers knew "there would be some anti-Bono calls and emails," but they were not prepared for such harsh comments. "This has been more vicious and in larger volume than was anticipated. ... Some of the comments are downright scary," the insider gushed.
However, Chaz would not lose support from his mother Cher who has tweeted, "It took courage to do DWTS! Thank God Chaz has an unlimited supply." Chaz himself said, "It's made me realize I'm really glad I'm doing this, because America really needs to see this."
