Chaz Bono: "It's really the internal changes that I think are the bigger changes"

Coming up this evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes author and transgender advocate Chaz Bono for an honest and engaging exclusive interview.

The only child of Sonny and Cher, Bono was born a female, but has since undergone the physical and social transitions to become a male, and was legally recognized as such by a California court in 2010.

Joining Piers Morgan from Los Angeles, Bono opens up about recently becoming single, detailing the role his transformation played in the recent break-up:

"I think it put some pressure on the relationship, but ultimately, you know, the reasons why we split up had really nothing to do...with that," says Bono. "It was issues that we were dealing with and...just stark differences in the people that we are and what we ultimately wanted out of life."

After spending nearly four decades as a woman, the 43-year-old further detailed how this experience affected him, both inside and out:

"I have changed a lot. And, you's really the internal changes that I think are the bigger changes," says the man originally known as Chastity. "I went from being, you know, really uncomfortable and kind of, you know, damaged for my whole life to suddenly not being that way anymore."

Tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as the author of "Transition: Becoming Who I Was Always Meant To Be" shares candid insight into his new life, and also spills details of his recent run on "Dancing With The Stars."

    Why has Pier's show been removed from the broadcast in Brasil?

    Im sorry Chaz,,,,you will never be a man, take all the shots and drugs you'll always be a woman. All you donow it to try to suck up and air time on any show that will have you, get a life, and ger real. The reason you broke up with your girl was exactly as you said and you didnt even realize what you said..."I didnt want to do "it" with her anymore" because everytime she touched you as a lesbian she wanted the female part of you and this only reminded you youre not a man!!!

    I just watched the interview.
    Chaz said, in response to his relationship, "I didn't want to do it anymore." I interpretated that as meaning the relationship was over.
    Objectively speaking, it must be trying, to change gender yet keep organ idenity.

    I changed the channel (out of CNN) upon enduring 15 seconds of this ... So pathetic.
    and will probably stay out for the whole week.

    Hey thanks, I rlaely appreciate the feedback! It seems like most people tend to agree with my sentiments, even if they do enjoy some kpop. It's not all bad, and some sound original, but not most. I mean, that's true of any music industry in general, but in Korea, only the same kind of music gets played everywhere and all the time, so it's much worse.
