As a kid I LOVED Sonny & Cher! My first 45 (remember those) was Cher's, "Baby Don't Go". I had to sneak to my family's competing drug store to buy it, because our drug store didn't have records at the time. I had a Sony & Cher poster on the wall above my bed. I met Cher in 1990, in LA in my "big hair" TV show host days. She was promoting the movie "Mermaids" with Winona Ryder, and a bunch of us "media types" were invited to meet them. It was at a night club that's no longer there on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. I look pretty subdued in the picture, but I was SO excited. She was as cool as I hoped she'd be. We even chatted a bit, I told her the stories above and she got a kick out of it. I asked her if she hated doing these "meet and greets", knowing she'd been doing a bunch, and she said she didn't like pushing the movie so much, but had fun meeting us "media types"...think she was just being nice. Winona was in another area acting shy, so I just went up and said "hello" and "good luck with the movie". Definitely a life highlight for me...meeting Cher!
