Demi Moore stepped out in public for the first time in months last night to support Amanda de Cadenet. She signalled her return the previous day on Twitter after a staying quiet for months, asking followers to suggest a new name, declaring that it was time for a change. Demi is currently still @mrskutcher. Initially, after confirming her split from Ashton Kutcher, Demi wrote that she was in no rush to call herself something else. Ready now?

As you know, there was a trip to rehab followed by a vacation. During that time there were virtually no decent pap shots of her and definitely none with decent resolution of her features. So, you see, even when they are desperately hunted, they can hide if they want to. If they want to.

Demi, it appears, has come out of hiding. In time to promote her show The Conversation With Amanda Cadenet on LifeTime. The Conversation is supposed to feature honest, raw discussions with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Eva Longoria. Amanda gets to ask the questions that no one else would ask and confront her subjects in a way that they’re apparently not accustomed to on camera, in order to, as they say, present an “alternative” new interview series. Demi is an executive producer.

Have you seen the trailer? It’s below and worth the two minutes, if only to hear Gwyneth feign shock when she’s asked about her favourite sex position. I do love it though when Amanda pretty much tells her that she dated a series of losers. Am I lured by the prospect of what a real discussion might sound like between celebrities? Of course. Can it happen? Well...

They say that The Conversation was “inspired by” Demi and Amanda’s relationship - the conversations they had between them and the truths that were revealed as a result of them. Demi wanted to share that experience with other women, as a way to empower them, us, all. But... so far, in all these denials, in all this avoidance, has Demi been an example of that? “I was never airbrushed, I was enlightened, I found peace, I was just exhausted and had to get help” - what happened to her wasn’t embarrassing; her bravado was embarrassing (what’s up Troy Dyer?).

I wrote the other day in relation to Ashley Judd that women don’t like to be played by other women. If Demi Moore is promoting a show about honest conversations, is it too much to ask to (finally) hear hers?
