Joan Rivers Talks Cher's 'Dancing With The Stars' Appearance

Cher may have been full of emotion last week as she watched her son, Chaz Bono, glide across the "Dancing with the Stars" ballroom floor, but her tears aren't saving her from comedian Joan Rivers' watchful eye.

"Cher was crying and no one knew,” Joan joked, pulling her face back, implying Cher has had a little work done. “Tears were coming out the side of her head. Chaz is now the son she never had -- oh yes, she has the other one.”

Sonny and Cher’s only child together, Chaz Bono, was born on March 4, 1969. Divorced in 1975, Cher then married her second husband, rock star Gregg Allman, the same year before welcoming their son, Elijah Blue Allman.

“I feel sorry 'cause Richard Simmons was also at 'Dancing With The Stars' that night,” Joan laughs. “And a gay man in the same room as Cher loses focus. All the gays were in a tizzy.”

Chaz and his partner, Lacey Schwimmer, earned a standing ovation from a teary-eyed Cher and a score of 21 from the judges --putting themselves in a tie for second-to-last place, which was an improvement from the week before.

And it’s not over yet. Cher took to twitter to tease she might be coming back to the show again: “YEAH! CHAZ GETS 2 DANCE ANOTHER WK! THANK U'S! DOES THIS MEAN IM ABOUT 2BCAST MEMBER OF DWTS. I might HAVE 1 MORE CAMEO UP MY SLEEVE.”

We can’t wait!
