Last night’s Bravo episode of “Watch What Happens: Live,” welcomed Cher to his studio and Andy Cohen was bubbling from head to toe. He announced it all week and had a hard time containing himself, but the night finally arrived, and she did not disappoint.
His text poll asked the question: “Do you believe in life after love?” The drinking word of the day was “Cher.”
He invited questions from the audience and had a few of his own. He shared some items from the Cher vault that included one where she and Farrah Fawcett played mannequins on “The Sonny & Cher Show.” Cher said that she remembered it because Farrah had tits, and she did not. On a Cher special on ABC, she played every role on “West-Side Side Story” and the Cher doll that grew hair commercial. Andy then showed his own doll and asked Cher to bless it. She kissed the doll and gave it back to him as he gushed all over.
Andy mentioned that Cher tweeted both day and night and has the most interesting tweets. Cher admits that they are hard to understand, including; “I piss & moan about Ridiculous Things! Wake up & smell 50$ Starbucks bitch! Like is Hard & sad & glorious & bi-polar & Lonely & MAGNIFICENT.” Another read, “& now she is going to pay with her blood & raw bleeding flesh & open bone marrow!” that she admitted being about some chick named Cha-something; did she mean Chastity/Chaz? Another read; “Some poor boy sent me Something that looked like a picture of his penis! 2 words 4 u Dear Heart! PENILE IMPLANT!”
Andy played a game with her called “Gypsies, Tramps and Tea” where she had to say the first thing that came into her mind about the person she knows . Andy put up a picture of, either someone she knew or co-starred with. First was Elvis, she did not really know him, but he invited her once for a weekend, but she was too frightened to go. She is sorry she did not accept his offer. Next, Whitney Houston, she really did not know her either. Nicholas Cage, she loves him; he is crazy, and she quit the movie “Moonstruck” because they were not going to hire him. Meryl Streep is Cher’s idol. Phil Spector, who gave her the first job, he was crazy and paid her $25 for a year’s work. Michael Jackson, she has too much information. Tom Cruise, she oohed, and said he was not a scientologist back then. They were hot and heavy for a minute.
He then played “Truth or Cher” where he asked questions of her. She either told the truth or did something Cher-ish. First question was; out of all of her old flames, who was the best lover? She said she had some of the greatest lovers, and Tom Cruise ranked in the top five. She said it is not a long list, just a good list. A fan asked if she ever had a Lesbian lover, and she replied; “who hasn’t?” She then admitted that she stole a horse when she was thirteen, Andy asked if she took it as a lover? She said she took it to Santa Ana.
A caller asked Cher if she could meet anyone dead or alive and ask them a question, who and what would it be? She said Jesus and she would ask Him, what’s the deal?
Her favorite era was the 80s because she could go swimming naked, not like today.
Another called asked what her bucket list consisted of? After a long pause, she wants to build a Balinese house. Andy told her she could do it now, but she said that was why it is on her bucket list, she has not gotten around to it.
Asked what her favorite movie role was, she replied, “Moonstruck” because she thought she was pretty good in it.
She has a new album coming out in September, and she said it is her best ever.
Andy did the Nick Cage line from “Moonstruck” with her where he told her he loved her, and she slapped him in the face and told him to “snap out of it!”
Andy gave viewers a montage of clips from “The Cher Show” and the poll revealed 93% believed that there is life after love, and only 7% do not.
Andy gave his “Mazel of the Day” to Cher for being on the show and let her announce the “Jackhole of the Day” because of all her rants on Twitter. She gave the distinction to Senator Ted Cruz, who does not like gays nor Americans not born in this country and is so right wing, that he pisses her off constantly.
The word of the day was said seventy-nine times on this episode of “Watch What Happens: Live.”
