Newly eliminated “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Chaz Bono has some serious beef with the show’s judges, and he’s airing his dirty laundry with the media. He appeared this morning on “Good Morning America,” where he alleged that the judges treated him unfairly.
“I got a lot of references from [Bruno Tonioli] about things that would indicate the fact that I’m overweight, you know, a roundness,” Bono said. “I was called a basketball, a penguin, an Ewok, and I just didn’t appreciate it.” Bono also called Tonioli “disrespectful.”
Chaz Bono maintains that he isn’t against criticism of his dancing — just the personal attacks: “If you want to critique my dancing and give me constructive advice so I can try to improve the next time that I’m there, that would be great. But I don’t really know how to be less penguinish, and so I kind of took offense to that.”
Whose side do you take, Bruno’s or Chaz’s?
