Chastity joins VH1 Celebrity Fit Club

 

Chastity & Cher

In a tearful mother-daughter reunion, Cher’s daughter, Chastity Bono, promised her she’d drop 100 pounds in a year — and to guarantee her success, Chastity signed on to appear on a national diet/reality show. That’s the real story behind the announcement that Chastity would join the third season of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club. And the news has thrilled her 59-year-old mom, who fears that Chastity’s weight has hit the point of no return and that she is slowly killing herself with a knife and fork. “Cher’s been worried sick about Chastity’s health for the past three years,” a family friend tells GLOBE. “She’s terrified that Chastity’s obesity will ultimately kill her. The weight issue was so stressful that it had created a wedge of tension between them. Chastity avoided her mother for months because she just couldn’t deal with Cher’s concern. The whole thing came to a head several weeks ago, and they finally reconciled after a two-month estrangement. Cher was heartsick. She felt helpless. And it pained her daughter to stay away from Cher for so long,” says the friend. Sources say Chastity made the first move when she went to her mother and told her she was considering taking part in the VH1 show. “Cher burst into tears,” says the friend. “She told Chastity she was sorry and that she loved her with all her heart and that she’d never give her advice again. And that’s when Chastity said the reason she decided to begin the programme at all was for her mother’s sake! And on the spot, she committed to losing 100 pounds. “Chas is 36 now and she’s been hovering around the deadly 300-pound mark for well over a year. She looks horrible. It’s just too much weight for her to carry. At times, she has trouble walking, she’s frequently out of breath and she’s a smoker. Celebrity Fit Club may ultimately wind up being a life-changing experience. And hearing that Chastity was finally going to do something about her obesity has brought her and Cher much closer again.” The show premieres in November and it also features The Woman in Red star Kelly LeBrock, Cosby Show alum Tempest Bledsoe, rapper Young MC and Broadway star Bruce Vilanch. Another pal adds, “This could actually be the best thing that’s ever happened to Chastity.”

  5. Dearest Chastity,
    I have been watching this show, and I have seen what a good job you are doing..It has got to be so hard, just to have a weight problem. Let alone go on T.V. and do it! But you are doing a good thing not only for yourself! But for others that are dealing with the same problem.
    You are a wonderful person inside and out. It has had to of been hard growing up with 2 well know parents…
    I have watched you from the time your Mother was careing you, and your Mom and Dad had you for the 1st time on there show..WOW!
    You must and have had to be a strong person to deal with all that….
    You are doing a GREAT JOB! Keep up the good work for yourself only…..But me being a Mother, I can understand how your Mother feels. She loves you very much..Sometimes that is why we don’t tell our children what they need to here….We just don’t want to hurt them in anyway..But by not telling our children what they need to know…we some how end up putting you in a place you don’t want to be…
    My daughter grew up fighting weight ! NOW! She said Mom, you such of been on me all the time…Well, like I tell her, You just didn’t come with instructions when I had you, so I did the best I could do!!
    I wish you the best in getting yourself healthy..You know you can do it….You go Girl! We all have faith in you..
    My Best

    Good luck Chastity. You can do it. You have a lot of support from people who love you. Your mom will be your rock. Your mom loves you a lot and will help you through this. You say you are doing it for your mom and that is good but you really have to do this for yourself. At the end when you have reached your goal you will love yourself for it. Your mom loves you either way, she just gives you advice because she is worried about your health. You have genes of the two strongest people ever. Your mom and your Dad.
    If Kirstie Alley could do it, so can you. Look how beautiful she looks and in one year from now you will look amazingly beautiful also. i cannot wait until I see your results. I am rooting for you. Go Chastity!

  7. Chas, I thought you were amazing on CFC. I was really rooting for you and I’m really proud at how much you put into it all… Every Sunday,,,,my plans were to stay home so I wouldn’t miss the show. haha and I never did. I know that must have been really hard but you always gave it your all and everyone could see how dedicated you are. I know your mom must have been extremely proud of you and I’m really glad it made you two closer. I wish you the best of luck…Bree
