cutting too heavy cactus

Hi, So I have a parodia cactus and it has grown too much. The bottom part is too thin to support the bigger top half. It cannot hold itself upright. I tried supporting it with sticks and such but it keeps growing more to the side since it's too heavy. Without the support the cactus would be laying down. I think it's time to cut the cactus. I was thinking it would be a good idea to cut it in half and then replant the top half while trying to keep the bottom half as well. Please let me know if that is the right thing to do.
