Chaz Bono and his Jennifer Elia, his fiancee, have broken up.
The couple have called off their engagement and “are no longer a couple,” a rep for Bono confirms. Howard Bragman, Chaz’s publicist, said the following:
“Chaz Bono and Jennifer Ella leave this relationship mutually and with great love, respect and affection toward one another. No further amplification will be forthcoming and they ask that you respect their privacy at this time.”
Jennifer Ella and Chaz Bono got engaged earlier this year, but were a couple since 1999, long before he underwent gender reassignment surgery to becomeMore >
Vinny Guadagnino from Jersey Shore released his debut rap song earlier, entitled “Rack City Mix” today … and it’s already been taken down by the reality star.
Read the lyrics below to see why.
The Staten Island product rhymed about going to a strip club and working his magic with one of the dancers. Seabiscuit then proceeds to do his thing …
“I ain’t got a girl … You ain’t got a man …I’ve got a date for ya … and it’s in my pants.
Oh you a fan? You wanna take a pic?I like your crack girl … I wanna take a hit.”

Former Dancing with the Stars contender Chaz Bono isn’t fading from the reality TV sunset just yet. He’s starring on his own show premiering tomorrow night!
That’s right, Cher’s son is letting the cameras in on his life again for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN series Being Chaz. The big event scheduled to air on the premiere?
His proposal to longtime girlfriend (and now fiancee) Jennifer Elia!
According to People, Chaz proposes in a “special” way by not overtly popping the question, but rather prefacing the big moment as a “birthday present.”
Jennifer Ella‘s reaction to the ring is almostMore >
Chaz Bono’s media appearances and stint on Dancing with the Stars won over many people this fall. The transgendered son of Warren Beatty is not one of them, though.
Stephen Ira, who was born a girl named Kathlyn, is 19, and is the child of Beatty and Annette Bening. He writes a blog titled Super Mattachine. Why’s he mad at Chaz?
Because Bono told the New York Times that being transgendered is essentially having a “mismatched” brain and body, akin to a “birth defect like a cleft palate.”
“I do not have a birth defect. If you feel you have a birth defect, fine. That’s how you feel. Go feelMore >
Will Chaz Bono die young because he became a man?
That’s the implication of a story in the National Enquirer. One that has him threatening to sue, claiming the article is a “smear campaign” and “blatantly false.”
The “story” is plastered right on cover of the November 11 issue with a headline that screams, “Chaz Bono: ONLY 4 YEARS TO LIVE.” Pretty overt, and awful.
The article cites “expert” opinions about Chaz’s weight, stress and medication linked with gender reassignment, concluding he’ll likely kick it by 2015.
The Dancing With the Stars cast member, understandably, is royally pissed,More >
Chaz Bono did not leave Dancing With the Stars on the best of terms.
He and partner Lacey Schwimmer were fired up after their performance this week, with the usually reserved duo saying the judges’ comments were “disrespectful.”
They weren’t complaining about the scoring that left them in last, but in particular to the way Bruno Tonioli compared Bono to a cute, fluffy penguin in his critique.
But after Chaz Bono’s elimination became official, he gave a really nice farewell speech, and it seemed he and Schwimmer had put any hard feelings behind them.
“I was quite angry,” Bono, 42, said.More >
What do Chaz Bono, the girls from ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars and Vinny Guadagnino of Jersey Shore fame have in common? This new PSA for GLAAD!
The aforementioned stars are among those featured in Amplify Your Voice, a new anti-gay bullying campaign being launched last night by the group.
Shay Mitchell of Pretty Little Liars and Modern Family‘s Ariel Winter kick it off.
“How would you feel if others treated you like you just didn’t belong at school, on your sports team, at church or even in your own home?” Shay says.
Vinny Guadagnino,More >
For Chaz Bono, the most defining year has been this one.
Bono said ’11 has been his most meaningful because “I’m happier than I’ve ever been,” then danced a rumba to a song that his father wrote, “Laugh at Me.” Its message: “If you have a problem with me, then it’s your problem, not mine.”
Unfortunately for the 42-year-old activist, who’s drawn both ire and support as theMore >
Chaz Bono battled gamely through the pain of inflamed knees last night on Dancing With the Stars, but couldn’t top his previous week’s score of 17.
Whereas last week, that was good enough to best some others, it was at the bottom of the heap last night, casting serious doubt on his hopes tonight.
“My knees just hurt so much,” Chaz Bono said Monday. The judges praised his attitude, but said his quickstep was simply too slow and not up to par.
Here’s the performance that left him in jeopardy, well behind Ricki Lake and every other contestant who took to the parquet floor last night …
Dancing With the Stars is set to kick off its 13th season in a matter of hours, and ABC is on high alert for “crazies” who have a thing against Chaz Bono.
Given the surprising backlash against the transgendered star’s casting, network execs and producers are taking no chances for Monday night’s premiere.
There have not been any credible, specific threats against Chaz Bono, TMZ reports, but the unprecedented level of hatred and controversy he’s generated are no joke.
Until further notice, Chaz will be given extra security while he’s on the CBS Television City lot, where the show is filmed,More >

Dr. Keith Ablow recently suggested that watching Chaz Bono on Dancing With the Stars could “confuse” American youth and make them consider a sex change.
Not the case, a major industry group says.
The American Psychiatric Association says Ablow’s assertion that seeing Chaz on DWTS will cause a spike in Gender Identity Disorder (GID) is unfounded.
John M. Oldham acknowledges that GID is a psychiatric disorder but told TMZ that as far as watching Chaz do the samba is concerned, there’s no connection.

Will Cher perform on Dancing With the Stars this season? That’s unclear, but she’s made it clear she will be there at least once to support son Chaz Bono.
Sources connected with Cher and Chaz say the criticism over a transgender contestant has given the star even more resolve to stand behind her child.
Cher is not saying which day she’ll show, or if she will sing on one of the results show, but has made it clear she will be in the audience “at least once.”
Insiders say Cher’s motive is not to drive votes for her son but simply to show support and make a statement against what sheMore >
