Chaz Bono: “I Didn’t Expect This”

The DWTS contestant talks to Ellen about the controversy surrounding his appearance on the show

Chaz Bono sat down with Ellen yesterday to talk about the controversy he’s facing for being on the hit TV show Dancing With the Stars this season (which kicks off Monday).
