Dancing with the Stars: Margaret Cho Says Bristol Palin is a “Cool Person”

December 08, 2010 07:00 AM by Shayla Perry


The social-networking spat between Dancing with the Stars co-stars Margaret Cho and Bristol Palin seems to be over. After writing on her blog that Bristol’s mother, Sarah Palin, forced her to do the ABC reality show, Margaret Cho appeared on Access Hollywood to set the record straight about how she feels about the 20-year-old single mom.

“I had a lot of time to gossip because I wasn’t dancing, because I got voted off early,” Cho told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood.

“I didn’t know if it was true, I was just reporting on stuff that I was gossiping about,” she explained. “I just wanted to say what I thought and mostly I just wanted to say that I was upset because people were criticizing her because of her body, because I felt that before and I hated that when it happened to me. So, I wanted to say, ‘She’s not fat she’s a beautiful girl!’

“She was great, what she was doing and she did her best,” Cho continued. “But, you know, there were other things at work, and if Sarah Palin is trying to run for President, I wish she would just admit it, because I want to stop it.”

After news of Cho’s post spread, Bristol responded in an open letter to the comedian on her Facebook page, telling Cho that it was her own decision to do the show.

Bristol went on to write:

“If you ever have a question, call me, girlfriend… You say you ‘don’t agree with the family’s politics at all’ but I say, if you understood that common sense conservative values supports the rights of individuals like you, like us… you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert.”

“Which is good, cuz I’m trying to ask KD Lang out for a date,” Cho joked. “The way that [the statement] was written, it also sounds like it was written by somebody in Nigeria who has a lot of money for me.”

Still, Margaret made it clear to Access Hollywood that she has no bad feelings about Bristol, saying, “I like her, I’m a supporter of Bristol. I’m not a supporter of their family’s politics, but I think she’s a cool person.”
