Margaret Cho lets her pansexual flag fly — with details
Margaret Cho is doing the rounds, and when this comic actress does the rounds, the result is likely to be just a little more Cho than you wanted to know.
And while the “Dancing With the Stars” alum and"Drop Dead Diva"actress kept it relatively tame on “The View” last Friday, hitting “safe” topics such as race and money, she let her pansexual flag fly Monday with Wendy Williams.
“I’m really attracted to all different types of people,” Cho explained to Williams. “So I don’t like to say that I’m gay or I’m straight -- I’m just slutty.”
What that means in practice, stated even more bluntly: “I wanna just hit it wherever I am,” she said, “and whoever is in front of me, and ... I’m gonna hit it, I can’t stop, so I’d rather just be honest.”
Monogamy, she said, is an “impossible thing” for her, something she can’t promise to anyone.
Cho explained that she’s in a monogamous-for-now relationship with a boyfriend, while her straight husband — they’re still married, since 2003 — is in a relationship with a girlfriend. And she and her husband no longer sleep together.
Having trouble connecting the pansexual dots? Perhaps it’s best to refocus on her more concrete “View” revelation, when she spilled how much “DWTS” contestants get paid.
“People will ask me about that show,” said Cho, who was the third person voted off in her season, “and they always tell me, ‘Oh Margaret, you were robbed ... ' That’s like saying somebody broke into my house and left me $200,000.”
Yes, she clarified to Joy Behar, she took home “about that” for her work on the show. (No wonder she’s trying to talk Sherri Shepherd into gunning with her for the upcoming “DWTS” all-star season, right?)
“Don’t feel sorry for anyone who gets voted off,” Cho added. “That’s what they made.”
Hear that, Michael Bolton? We still don’t feel sorry for you.
