Cher’s fam­ily to be ex­posed

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

CHER will spill de­tails about her fam­ily in a forth­com­ing tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­tary. The 66-year-old singer and her mum, Ge­or­gia Holt, have agreed to in­ter­views with Amer­ica’s Life­time net­work that will shed light on their re­la­tion­ship. Dear Mom, Love Cher will also fo­cus on the diva’s fam­ily his­tory, En­ter­tain­ment Weekly re­ports. Ac­cord­ing to the publi­ca­tion, the hour-long doc­u­men­tary will fea­ture in­ter­views with Cher’s half-sis­ter, ac­tress Ge­or­ganne LaPiere Barty­lak, and Cher’s sons, Chaz Bono and Eli­jah Blue All­man. The project will touch on Ge­or­gia’s up­bring­ing in ru­ral Arkansas and how she helped her daugh­ter to kick­start her leg­endary ca­reer dur­ing a ‘‘tu­mul­tuous’’ time of her own. The ma­tri­arch mar­ried six times and was also a strug­gling ac­tress, singer and en­ter­tainer. It will also fea­ture a never-be­fore-heard duet with the mother and daugh­ter and record­ings Cher had re-mas­tered for her mother from early in her ca­reer. ‘‘This project started as a gift for my mum’s 86th birth­day. Like most things in my fam­ily, it was ini­ti­ated by my sis­ter Ge­or­ganne, who asked me if I could up­date mom’s al­bum. So I went big – I’m known in the fam­ily for do­ing that,’’ Cher says. Cher heaped praise on her mother for be­ing a sup­port­ive and re­silient role model. ‘‘My sis­ter and I are proud of our mum and we want to share her with the world,’’ she says. ‘‘My mum is ex­actly like Rocky. She never gives up!’’
