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.
Cher, Georgia Holt
Is fabulousness passed down through the DNA? Apparently so. Oscar winner Cher tells TV Guide Magazine about Lifetime's Dear Mom, Love Cher (Monday, May 6 at 10/9c), the Mother's Day documentary she exec produced to honor the woman who brought her into this world — 86-year-old, six-times-married, totally trippy Georgia Holt.
