Chaz Bono Proposes, Chaz Bono didn’t take home the “Dancing With The Stars” mirror ball trophy, but he got the next best thing — another OWN documentary special. And when the documentary airs on Sunday, November 27, fans will see the LGBT activist propose to his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Elia.
During the proposal, Bono told Elia that he wanted to give her something special for her birthday, before presenting her with a giant diamond.
“It’s gorgeous,” Elia said, in clips obtained by People magazine. “Thank you so much. It’s stunning. It’s huge.”
Bono announced on a May 12 episode of “Piers Morgan Tonight” that he had proposed to Elia. Bono told Piers Morgan that the couple planned to wed within the year and had actually been engaged for two years but had to “put things on hold” when he underwent his gender transition.
It was announced in October that Bono would star in a follow-up to his Emmy-nominated OWN documentary special “Becoming Chaz,” which aired in May. The new documentary special, “Being Chaz,” chronicles Bono’s relationship with his girlfriend after transitioning from his female-to-male sex change.
The documentary will also feature Bono’s casting on “Dancing With The Stars” and the controversy which occurred after he was announced as a contestant.
In a different clip, Elia got emotional when she talked about the backlash Bono received upon joining the reality dancing competition
“People feel so angry that Chaz is entering their television. People who make change get shot, and I don’t think that’s worth it” Elia said tearfully. “This is insane. It’s not worth doing a show if you’re going to get shot. I don’t want him to die for a cause.”
Bono, who was born Chastity Bono, is the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono. The 42-year-old also opened up about his struggles in his book, “Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man.”
