    Chastity Bono to Become a Man—Big Surprise!

    Which is more shocking: That Chastity Bono plans to become a man, or that Cher's rep lied about her client not shopping around a reality show on the ordeal?

    TMZ today confirms the semi-stunning news that Chastity has decided to undergo a sex-change operation. Too fab! (Of course, we reported this two months ago, but whatever, right?) Just glad Chastity is happy and...

    ...settled with her/his decision in switching her female condition to his male, as Bono's rep has confirmed.

    But the Bonos' request, via this same publicist, is amusing, at best:

    "We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time" is how he put it, exactly.

    I mean, before all the news broke, Cher and her offspring did supposedly shop the very painful operation required around as a reality-TV show. Not exactly the most "private" way to go about it, eh? Either way, we wish ya luck, Chaz!

    GLAAD has just released a statement also applauding Chaz' important step forward, "both for him personally and for all who are committed to advancing discussions about fairness and equality for transgender people." 

    Well put. We'll have more deets for ya pronto!
