Cher loves her mom. No reason to think Rihanna doesn't, but for now, the career comes first. Two of pop's highest-profile divas take the spotlight in new docu-specials, with Lifetime's Dear Mom, Love Cher (Monday, 10/9c) going for the heart-strings as Cher pays tribute to her 86-year-old mom, Georgia Holt, who uprooted her family from Arkansas to Hollywood to pursue stardom that would take another generation to achieve. Cher performs a duet with Georgia and introduces recordings her mom taped more than 30 years ago that Cher is preparing to release commercially. Think of this as a helpful reminder if you haven't done your own Mother's Day shopping yet. Rihanna's love-fest in Fox's self-promotional vanity production Rihanna 777 (8/7c) is with the fans who follow her on a world concert tour, packing a 777 airliner along with journalists and a film crew capturing her every move.
Stephen Colbert's alter egomaniac on The Colbert Report may be a hawk, but the real Colbert is a peace-loving guy, at least when it comes to the late-night battlefield. We caught up with the Comedy Central cutup — in a rare interview out of character — at the opening-night gala for the Montclair Film Festival in his adopted home state of New Jersey (his wife Evelyn is one of the fest's organizers).
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is almost always a red carpet standout, but at this year's Screen Actors Guild awards the actress turned heads for her somewhat shocking new hair style: bangs. The clip-on style fringe received scathing reviews from critics and fans alike.
On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cuoco explained that the last-minute bangs were actually a cover-up for stitches and a black eye. Apparently she was rehearsing with her co-star Johnny Galecki before the big event, and while the two were supposed to have a fake physical fight, Cuoco actually banged her head.

This week, Jimmy Kimmel interviewed fans at the Coachella Music Festival about some hot new bands — the only problem is, the bands don't actually exist. But that didn't stop festival-goers from gushing about them. Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon did her best Ellen DeGeneres impersonation in front of Ellen herself, and Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi discovered a family connection with the band Vampire Weekend. Also, in random celebrity strokes of genius, Tilda Swinton led the audience at Ebertfest in a dance to Barry White in remembrance of Roger Ebert, and Buscemi's Boardwalk castmate Michael Shannon did a dramatic (and NSFW!) reading of a nasty letter from a sorority president. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of Top Videos:
