Superstar Cher has knocked back multiple offers to appear on American Idol and The Voice. Seems Cher is not a fan of reality TV and I am with her 100% on this decision!! Cher is too classy for these shows. This is from Liz Smith’s column..
“THE TROUBLE with some women is that they get all excited over nothing — and then they marry him.”
This is one of my favorite quotes from the incredible Cher. The star herself has only married twice — her famous union with Sonny Bono and that roller-coaster ride with Gregg Allman — and that was quite enough. However, years ago Cher stunned me during an interview, confessing that she “absolutely” would have married Rob Camilletti, but neither one of them thought a marriage could survive the press intrusions — he was unfairly characterized as “the bagel boy.” Cher rarely shows her feelings, but on this one occasion, heartbreak was obvious, as well as her bitterness toward the media.
SPEAKING OF Cher, “American Idol” has tried for years to get her on the show, to no avail. Last week, a rumor flew that Cher was still saying “no” to “Idol,” but has agreed to appear as a judge on “The Voice.” Also, she was preparing a musical on her life in the ’60s with Sonny, partnered with producer Ron Dante. Mr. Dante produced, among other things, “Children of a Lesser God” on Broadway. One of his lesser-known credits was singing lead on the 1969 bubblegum hit “Sugar, Sugar,” with The Archies. (This was the song The Monkees refused to do, leading to a break with their management. “Sugar, Sugar” was a huge hit.)
Interesting rumors, yes? So I went straight to Cher’s press rep, Liz Rosenberg. (Liz has also repped Madonna for more than a quarter-century. The woman is a walking mass of Purple Hearts.) Liz said, “Cher is absolutely not doing ‘The Voice.’ And this musical project has been talked about for ages. It is still in its infancy.” Oh, well. Then Liz said, “But I do have something cute on Cher. Her comic book has sold out its second printing and is going into a third, with a new cover. That’s how popular it is!”
What do you think, should CHER go on Idol or The Voice??
