S21E01: Cher and Gregg Allman


All the way back in Season One, Stacie covered the marriage and divorce of Sonny and Cher. But Cher’s marital adventures didn’t end with Sonny Bono, as Alicia shares. After things fizzled between the pair, Cher went on to marry The Allman Brothers’ Gregg Allman – who was unfortunately pretty wrapped up in a cycle of addiction at the time. Things were hard for the couple, and while they gave it a real go (with three divorce filings across their four years!), in the end, they were left merely as co-parents harboring a lot of affection and regret.
