Chaz Bono survived another week on Dancing with the Stars, the same day his mother Cher promised she’d be cheering on her son in the audience if voters could forgive a pair of sub-par performances, and keep him alive in the competition.
They did, sending The Hills star Kristin Cavallari home Tuesday night, setting up a dramatic cameo for next week.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Cher tweeted Monday: “God hope Chaz hangs on till next week so I can come sit in the Audience & Watch.”
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Chaz wrote: “This is the most amazing experience. #SAFE #DWTS… I wish I could thank each & every one of you personally for your votes. YOU are the reason @LaceySchwimmer & I ARE DANCING AGAIN next week!!
The 42-year-old author/activist — who’s been hobbled with injuries to his knee, ankle and right leg — has finished in the bottom of judges’ scoring the past two weeks, earning 17/30 points last week and 18/30 this week for his efforts.
Dancing With the Stars returns to ABC at 8/7c on Monday.
