I'm kind of excited about the guest judge tonight. Cher starts the show singing "Believe" high up in the air on a lighted pedestal. This is just and right, as Cher is above us mere mortals and we are lucky when she lowers herself to our level. Also, she's 67 years old and the bosoms are high, as is the hemline. LOVE HER. The cameramen are clearly beside themselves over Cher, as the introductory walk-ons are completely botched camera-wise.

Cher has been away from the movies for a few years now, and she chooses to come back via . . . this?Bad career move. If this is the sort of movie she'd been making until now, she'd have no career to come back to.That Cher pretty much slums her way through "Faithful" is possibly the least of its problems. Her co-stars fare little better: Chazz Palminteri, who wrote the screenplay, is undone by his own words, which may have looked good on paper, but are no more than cliche after cliche on the screen.

I WAS madly in love with Robert. I would have married him. I wanted to." "Really?!" "Yes. If it hadn't been for the press, we'd be married." That was part of a conversation I had with Cher years ago. I was interviewing her, and she was speaking of loneliness and the difficulties of being the kind of star she is - how stressful relationships can be, undone by the imbalance. After all, how many iconic figures marry other iconic figures? I mentioned the wonderful Robert Camilletti, whom Cher had dated for a number of years.

Five thousand dollars is not bad for a day's work, particularly when all it involves is sending a fax to Cher and asking her to call a radio station.But that's pretty much all 9-year-old Erin Williams of Essex did to win the "Who Do You Know?" contest on WWMX-FM (106.5)."We just kind of did it and forgot about it," says Connie Williams, Erin's mom. "We did not know in advance she was going to call, and we didn't hear [the call] the first time. My older daughter's fifth-grade teacher called the house and told us about it."

Cher continues her inexhaustible march back into the public eye with a scheduled appearance on Letterman tonight."World Of Discovery" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- "Last Charge of the Rhino" documents the inexcusable and heartbreaking tragedy of the rhinoceros, which has been hunted close to extinction by poachers because some idiots with money to burn covet the animals' horns. ABC."Long Island Fever" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Wonder what kind of show is so bad, network programmers won't even take a chance on it?

"Tattoos are the big hair of the '90s -- Wake up!"-- Graffiti scrawled on a men's-room stall at a Boston club"That is so cool," says Cher, when told of this bit of mid-'90s pop-cultural wisdom. And she should know. Cher is Ms. Original Rose Tattoo.Cher has six tattoos, including, as she puts it, "a garden on my butt."She got her first one in 1972."My mother was appalled. Everybody was appalled. And that suited me just fine. Now everybody has tattoos. I bet Dole has got a tattoo someplace," she says, referring to Bob Dole, the presidential candidate.

Tonight, thousands of fans will pour into Washington's MCI Center to behold the latest incarnation of Cher, as pop-rock's ageless chanteuse kicks off the first week of touring for her latest album, Living Proof. Many will carry with them - or perhaps snap up from vendors - something from among the huge variety of Cher-inspired ephemera: Cher Barbies, T-shirts, stuffed bears, watches, buttons, even Cher tarot cards. But for at least a few others, merchandise isn't enough. They want to be Cher, emulating her, um, unique style.

Remember in Clueless when Dionne asked Cher if she were suffering from buyer's remorse and, looking horrified, Cher said no? Well lucky you, Miss Horowitz, because I certainly am.  Knowing nothing about wedding dress shopping, I was surprised when in February, a week after my engagement, my stepmom insisted we begin the search. We visited a total of two places, and I had my dress deposit down in less than a month.  I love my dress. I can't really detail it here because my fiance wisely reads this blog (Hi, Rob!

So the charming, the unique, the indestructible Cher is coming back! The Oscar-winning Cher, at 61, has had career success and longevity like few others. Remember this: She is the only artist to have a hit song in each of the past four decades. And as she preps to make a super splash at Caesars Palace in the Celine Dion venue, she is working on her 27th studio album. She told Nightline's Cynthia McFadden that her regrets are the things she didn't do -- like taking up Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando when they made a pass.

OUR FAVORITE singing/dancing/glamour-puss/Oscar-winner/survivor and genuinely nice human being, Cher, has been lying low recently. One of the things I love about Cher - and miss when she's out of touch - is that she speaks spontaneously and truthfully, but never tells too much. She's so appealingly earthy, frank and funny you think you're seeing her soul. But you're only seeing what she allows. The real woman is far more interesting and complex. Anyway, soon fans of Cher will have one, perhaps two offerings.

One of the surest signs of summer in Baltimore arrives this week with the opening of two (and continuation of two more) free outdoor film series. Remember to arrive early and take your lawn chairs. The 2007 Little Italy Open-Air Film Festival kicks off tonight with the traditional Moonstruck, starring Cher (in her Oscar-winning role) and Nicolas Cage as impassioned lovers who are as star-crossed as they are meant for each other. Directed by Norman Jewison, the 1987 romantic comedy also won Oscars for Olympia Dukakis (supporting actress)

The bionic babe created in an operating orgy is writing a self-help manual on how to be fit and fetching? Isn't that a little like Tammy Faye Bakker exalting the virtues of natural beauty?No fair, cries Cher. She knows the press and public write off her sinewy slinkiness as medical editing, but "I've killed myself in the gym to have this body. It isn't like I have some amazing secret that nobody else has. And when I don't want to exercise, I look like hell. It's not anything you'd want to see."

Stories about works of art discovered in forgotten corners of cluttered attics never fail to pique our interest. But what if a treasure-trove of such works, hidden in plain sight in downtown Columbia, were to appear in a new, temporary setting -- all of it available for purchase? That's what happens this weekend and next when works from the Artists' Gallery of Columbia -- usually exhibited in the lobby of the American City Building in Columbia Town Center -- come out to be viewed and sold at the home of member artist Cher Compton and her husband, Craig.
