Looks like Maksim Chmerkovskiy isn't the only dancer on Dancing With the Stars to feel frustration with the judges this season.

Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer still had a few choice words of their own to share with us after the show, and you won't believe what message Chaz's mom, Cher, had for the judges...

"We were upset, not with the scores but with the comments toward me personally," Chaz told us after he got eliminated tonight, referring to Bruno Tonioli's likening Chaz to a cute, fluffy penguin. "We thought we did a good job [last night]."

"The judges always have a favorite or two," Lacey lamented. "We are just not that couple this season."

So what went wrong? Why did the judges feel compelled to get personal? Chaz said only that he knows that their commentary certainly can affect the voting, and Lacey agreed.

"For Middle America who knows nothing about ballroom dancing," she explained, "they look at these three judges and think they know everything there is to know about ballroom dancing. And when they make comments like that, it does influence how people will vote or support or view the show."

Chaz's sorta-kinda famous mom Cher (heard of her?), lashed out via Twitter tonight about having to hold her "temper," writing: "Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility. You are beautiful inside & out ! To the Gentleman?I didn't know who u Were b4 which I guess is a blessing ! Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT."

Cher went so far as to say to Chaz via Twitter, "Your mom could cut a bitch!"

"Yeah, she tweeted out that she was pretty upset," Chaz told us with a smile backstage. "But you know, I had a good long run. I lasted a lot longer than anyone thought I would, including myself."

"We've had amazing followers who have kept us in here and that's a beautiful thing," Lacey added.

Do you think Chaz was treated fairly by the judges? Cha-cha down to the comments with your thoughts!
