Cher has been openly supportive of her son, Chaz Bono, joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars.
Should Chaz be worried about those who aren't quite so supportive?
TMZ reports security will be tight tonight for the first live show of the season, and that means ABC has taken some extra steps in case anyone with a thing against Chaz Bono might decide to try something crazy. Chaz will have personal security both on and off the dance floor.  That means, security where the show is filmed, and off the premises too.  No specific threats have been reported, but with all the talk and people fired up about having Chaz on the show, every precaution will be taken.

This isn't the first time DWTS has had to deal with security issues.  The show provided security for Bristol Palin after an anthrax scare last year.
