Cher is not dead. The Californian singer became the latest victim of a Twitter hoax, when RIP Cher began trending worldwide on Twitter late on Thursday (26 January 2012). The trending topic whipped the micro-blogging site into frenzy, with reality star Kim Kardashian tweeting, "Did I just hear Cher has passed away? Is this real? OMG".
Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger was also duped by the hoax, asking followers, "Is this for real? I don't see it anywhere". A frantic Kardashian later tweeted to followers, "I hope this is a twitter joke and not true. I don't see it on the news anywhere. I'm praying its not true". It appears that the RIP Cher trend began when one user going by the name of Lorraine_Star re-tweeted a fake CNN news story that read, "American recording artist Cher dies at 65 years old. Found dead in Malibu home". However, Kardashian, Stanger, and thousands of worried Cher fans eventually breathed a collective sigh of relief when the singer's close friend, the jewellery designer Loree Rodkin, tweeted, "It's a hoax. She's fine". The 65-year-old is the latest victim of a fake Twitter death hoax. Last year, Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner had to take to the site to dispel rumors he had passed away, and Charlie Sheen was also reported to have died.
Cher, who has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, returned to the stage in 2008 to begin a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in a show named 'Cher at the Coliseum'. She finally completed the mammoth run in February 2011.

Patti Stanger, the host of Bravo's 'Millionaire Matchmaker', has been criticised for comments she made about woman who have curly hair, reports CNN. The 49-year-old said that men were less likely to want to touch a woman's hair if it was curly, which sparked angry responses from websites and online groups.
Speaking to Glamour Magazine, Stanger said, "Curly hair is okay . as long as it's approachable hair, which means he wants to touch it, he wants to put his hands in it", adding, "If you've got healthy hair and it's naturally wavy, you're fine. I'm talking about the frizzy, damaged, really harsh hair". The website NaturallyCurly.com quickly reacted to the comments by sending a letter to the television personality that read, "NaturallyCurly.com has had it with your curl-bashing ways. Season after season, we've listened to you fuel insecurities and spread a notion that you can only be attractive with smooth, straight hair."
Stanger was criticised for making similar comments in 2009, and her rep has yet to respond to the latest wave of criticism.

They're very shallow in LA", and when asked about how she found acting as a matchmaker to the millionaires in New York, Stanger said, "You have to remember there are five women to every one guy in New York. It's completely different than any other city in the United States. it really didn't work in LA. It worked better, way better in New York".
