Cher as a producer of a reality TV series? Variety reports that the pop icon is putting her well-publicized sense of style to new use by serving as executive producer of a TV pilot based on a British TV show "Style Challenge," the rights to which Cher acquired. On the series, two guests are made over each week by a team of fashion experts. Cher reportedly wants to have the show ready for syndication in America next year, and may step in as host until a permanent emcee is found. Meanwhile, an ABC insider has told PEOPLE.com that the diva is indeed anxious to play madcap Auntie Mame in the TV version of the Broadway musical "Mame" that is due to air next May. (Barbra Streisand is the project's executive producer and, until recently, had been considering the role herself.) An official announcement regarding the project is expected soon.
