Kelly recalled that during the three months of the diet competition, Chaz's partner Jennifer Elia, was frequently around the set, encouraging Bono.  "She was lovely; a beautiful woman.  "I think it's fantastic that Chaz has had the courage to make this decision.  What a brave human being he is to stand before the world and reveal the truth about himself.  It's inspiring."
