Margaret Cho: 'I Didn't Want to Live' When I Was Bullied

Originally posted 10/05/2010 10:00AM



Following a series of suicides by gay teens in recent weeks, Margaret Cho and Louis van Amstel chose a theme of gay pride for their Dancing with the Stars samba on Monday – and later spoke to PEOPLE about the bullying they suffered as kids.

"When I was a teenager, I was bullied a lot, and I felt very insecure and very scared, and I didn't want to live," said Cho, who is bisexual. "And I just want to reach out to these kids and make sure that they stay with us."

Van Amstel urged gay teens to find strength in their talents. "I've been bullied for being gay when [I was] 10 years old because I loved dance," he said. "You just have to find out what you're really good at. Put your mind, body and soul into that. For me, it was dance, and it was great therapy."

She may be known for racy jokes, controversial political commentary and her role on Drop Dead Diva but Margaret Cho is bringing on the heat to the dance floor and going full throttle to win the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

"It's definitely one of the most intense things that I've ever done," Cho, 41, tells PEOPLE. "To go from zero activity to six hours a day of dancing is really crazy. My muscles are so worked now that I feel like a furnace."

Plus, she has to brush up on dances like the Viennese Waltz and the Cha Cha with partner Louis Van Amstel in between her "Cho Dependent" comedy tour and a headlining gig at the New York Comedy Festival on Nov. 5.

A week after Miley Cyrus addressed her photo flap, the singer continues to draw criticism from some in the Asian community – including Korean comedian Margaret Cho.

Cyrus denied she was mocking Asians when a photograph of her pulling at the corners of her eyes surfaced on the Internet. "There are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces," Cyrus wrote on her official Web site. "Well, I'm sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!"

In turn, Cho took to her blog on Wednesday to condemn Cyrus's actions, posting the lyrics to a song she wrote about the Disney star.

"I am so upset by Miley Cyrus, I think it warrants a song," she wrote on her blog.
