September 27, 2004


You've seen the public side of Cher. But who is she as a woman, daughter and mother? In honor of Dr. Phil's new book, Family First: Your Step-by-Step Plan for Creating a Phenomenal Family, Cher welcomes her good friend, Robin McGraw, into her home for a candid conversation about family, parenting and motherhood.


On Growing Up:

"We ate beans for a week; we didn't have shoes sometimes. It was rough."



On Being a Single Mom:

"I screwed up like crazy."

 



On Her Daughter's Sexuality:

"She came out to everybody but me. You can't do that ... I'm Cher."

 



On Her Son's Intervention:

"I would say to him, 'Are you high?' and he'd say, 'Yeah.'"

 



On Being Single:

"Nobody wants to be Mr. Cher."
