Chaz Bono

Chaz BonoChaz Bono, Few, if any, of the millions who first found a blond boy called chastity in “The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour” could have predicted that one day this little girl become a big man named Chaz.

But then, who would have imagined that his father shaggy hair someday be a Republican Congressman? Or that her mother would win an Oscar funny? Clearly, attitudes and perceptions can be adjusted. And, like Oprah Winfrey began her OWN Network Documentary Film Club series tomorrow with “Being Chaz,” a film about the physical and legal Chaz transition to adulthood Bono, of attitude is largely agenda.

That’s understandable – why would someone who grew up in the center undergo a review of their most intimate relationships and feelings, but to try to win hearts and minds of strangers? – But not as interesting as the settings themselves are produced and about Chaz.

From his girlfriend, Jenny, which began years earlier in a relationship with someone he thought was a woman and is now living in a testosterone-laden atmosphere, for the first time in years (and with someone whose sexual desire and exceeds their own).

Women used to have too many aspects of life the expression of “hormones” may be less surprised to see how men can influence the chemistry of the personality of a man, but it’s still interesting to watch.

Chaz, whose doctor talks about his transition as a “second puberty” and believes that gender identity disorder as something like high blood pressure or diabetes, “a medical condition that needs treatment, presented here so their most extravagant parents have never considered probable.

Cher, that except for a brief scene at the end, appears in the film only as someone whose adult child, literally, go on a TV screen, but speaks fondly of Chaz, who is still referred to as “she”.

She suggested that Sonny, whom she divorced when Chaz was 4 and died in a skiing accident in 1998, “would have been supportive. He was much more favorable in the beginning of his being gay…. She told everyone before she said, because she knew there would be so happy about it. ”

Certainly, it is difficult to imagine the image-conscious star each while allowing a film crew to record the before and after surgery, as Chaz did when her breasts were removed.

Surgery, of course, is the aspect of not-going-back sex change than most of us cannot help but wonder about, and “Being Chaz” does not flinch from that curiosity – or the inherent disorder to any surgery.

Or, for that matter, the disorder inherent to all life that exists apart from what we might think we see on television.

“I do not remember my early childhood,” Chaz tells a skeptical interviewer at the beginning of the film.

There is a pause.

“You’re thinking of show ‘The Sonny and Cher,” he says firmly. “You’re not thinking in reality.”

“Natalia” is still missing
Two years ago, the life of film Red scored what was then its highest audience to “Natalee Holloway,” a film about the upper secondary Alabama who disappeared in Aruba in 2005, Tracy Pollan, in which she played the mother of Natalia, Beth.

Tonight, Pollan is back, this time in the main channel for life, in the sequel deceptively titled, “Justice for Natalee Holloway,” which tells Beth’s efforts to wring a confession from the man he believes responsible for the disappearance her daughter (and now awaits trial in the 2010 murder of a woman in Peru).

For people who can not get enough of this sad story – I’m afraid I can not really count among them – “Justice” serves as an introduction to the premiere of a new Lifetime series, “Vanished with Beth Holloway,” in Holloway real life highlights the cases of others who have disappeared.

(After tonight, the show moves to 9 pm on Wednesdays.)

The first episode, which tells the story of a family of San Diego in the area that may or may not have gone through the border with Mexico, leaving behind a home to 100,000 and the bank, is a puzzle, all right.

But if Holloway brings something more to this life project what he calls his “unique vision empathy,” I cannot find it. *
