chaz bono cher dancing with the stars Chaz Bono advising Cher on 'Dancing With the Stars' guest judge gig

Cher will be appearing as a guest judge on “Dancing With the Stars” on Nov. 4, so she turned to someone close to her heart to prepare her for the role. The legendary performer admits that her son Chaz Bono, who competed on the ABC reality show in 2011, has been giving her advice to help her get ready for the gig.

“He’s coming tonight to give me tips!” she tells reporters. “He said, ‘Mom, you don’t understand how seriously people take this. I’m coming over tonight and … I’m going to tutor you.’ Obviously, I’m going to need all the help I can get.”

Among the items they’ll be studying is a “huge binder” filled with all of the contestants’ biographies and a history of what they’ve done so far on “Dancing With the Stars.” At the end of the binder, there is a scorecard.

“Someone’s going to have to do some cramming with me,” Cher jokes.

Are you looking forward to Cher’s appearance?
