Chaz Bono is the latest star to exit 'Dancing'

By SANDY COHEN, The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- Chaz Bono has gotten his walking papers on "Dancing with the Stars."

Tuesday's edition of the hit ABC show marked the last dance for Bono. Despite his cheerful, spirited style, he had struggled from the beginning and came in last in the judges' assessment the night before.

The transgender activist said he came on the program "to show America a different kind of man."

Soccer star Hope Solo, who also was in jeopardy, avoided dismissal and will stay in contention. Six celebrities remain in the contest.

Judges' scores combined with viewer votes determine who is kicked off the show each week.

From GLAAD blog:

Unlike many of his competitors, Chaz Bono didn't come into Dancing With the Stars with a lifetime of training in performance or athletics behind him, but nevertheless he showed how far someone can go and improve through hard work and perseverance.  What's more, Chaz allowed millions upon millions of viewers to learn a little more about him with each passing week and quickly became the world's most well-known transgender person.

I voted for Chaz and think he did much better than Hope. Wish he could have stayed longer.
