Tuesday morning, Howard Stern will chat with Chaz Bono for his first major interview since his exit from "Dancing with the Stars." And what exactly will Bono have to say about letting the Mirror Ball trophy slip from his hands? You'll have to tune in to find out.

"Howard and his audience have always supported Chaz," an insider told me. "As outrageous as Howard is, he has always been a friend of the gay, lesbian and transgender community. He thinks Chaz is cool and can't wait to talk with him tomorrow."

Chaz is stepping back into the public spotlight -- although this time it won't be with a quickstep -- to promote his new documentary, "Being Chaz," which premieres Nov. 27 on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network. "Being Chaz" is a follow-up to the hugely successful "Becoming Chaz" which followed Cher's son throughout the process of physically becoming a transgender man.

"Chaz is a shy guy but has found a lot of confidence since doing 'Dancing with the Stars,'" a friend of his tells me. "He never wanted to be the poster child for the transgender community but is handling all the attention very well. If he can help change the mind of one person or make life better for one teenager then he will, even if that means subjecting himself to the questions of Howard Stern."
