Listen up, haters.
You can gripe, hiss and stomp your feet as much as you want—nothing is going to keep Chaz Bono from competing on Dancing With the Stars.
"I think that we have really good chemistry," Bono told us of DWTS partner Lacey Schwimmer at this weekend's Creative Arts Emmy Awards in L.A.
"I have a really good time with her. She's a lot of fun. She's really easy to be around. I think she's a great teacher and I'm really glad that I got her as a partner. I can't imagine going through this hell with anybody else."
Some of that hell includes physical "soreness," but luckily nothing serious in the injuries department. "You'll definitely see a more light-hearted side of me," Bono said. "And you'll see a dancing side of me which no one has seen before!"
For as much hate as there may be, Bono continues to take the lead from his supporters.
"I don't really dwell on the negative stuff nor do I go looking for it," he said. "I've just been getting a tremendous amount of positive tweets and emails. It's been great."
It shouldn't be any other way.
