Margaret Cho Says She's Like Susan Boyle With Dirty Songs on Ferguson (VIDEO)

Margaret Cho, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'In talking about her latest project, Margaret Cho admitted that it's a mix of stand-up comedy and original songs on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:30AM ET on CBS). Craig Ferguson was surprised to hear that she did songs, as she's not well known for that.

"I have a really good singing voice," Cho said. "I mean, people don't expect it to come out of my face. I'm a lot like Susan Boyle that way."

She went on to explain, though, that her songs were far too dirty to broadcast on television, which only made Ferguson want to hear them even more. Maybe Ferguson needs to do an 'Craig Ferguson After Dark' series on Showtime that can show uncensored footage from the show, and could feature original music by Margaret Cho.

Kathy Griffin and Margaret Cho Spar Over Almond Milk on 'Drop Dead Diva' (VIDEO)

Kathy Griffin, 'Drop Dead Diva'Fans of 'Drop Dead Diva' (Sun., 10PM ET on Lifetime) know that Kim can be catty with Jane, and pretty much everyone else on the show. What we learned this week, is that this behavior is a family trait, as Kathy Griffin guest-starred as her sister.

When Teri (Margaret Cho) catches Griffin drinking the last of her almond milk out of the refrigerator, even though it was clearly labeled with her name, Griffin offered no apologies. When asked if she was planning to replace it, she said, "I would tell you to have your assistant buy you another carton, but I can tell by your shoes that you are the assistant."

The two comedians threw a few barbs back and forth, with Cho getting in jabs about Griffin's plastic surgery and wardrobe choices. Griffin is certainly having a bit of a renaissance on television right now, appearing in shows across the dial.

Jeffrey Ross Makes Fun of His Brief, Painful 'Dancing With the Stars' Experience (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 12th 2011 8:30AM
Comedian Jeffrey Ross is best known for his joke-telling and roasting skills, not his dance moves. But he did have a short-lived run on Season 7 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' that brought him to the emergency room with a scratched cornea, dressed in sequined jumpsuit.

On 'Green Room With Paul Provenza' (Thu., 11PM on SHO.), Ross and fellow 'DWTS'-alum Margaret Cho rehashed their less than stellar experiences on the show. "My partner, Edyta, the last rehearsal, she gets fake fingernails put in, and I was doing my last move, and her nail went into my cornea," Ross said. He ended up dancing on the show with, "an eyepatch on ... against doctor's orders, and I got beat by Cloris Leachman."

Ross and his partner were the first couple voted off the show that season. "I got voted off during 'Jeopardy!', before the show even aired," he joked.

Margaret Cho Details Accidentally Sexting Her Mom (VIDEO)

Margaret Cho discusses sexting on 'The View'Margaret Cho said Wednesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) that she loves sexting. So much so that she's hesitant to judge Anthony Weiner for his recent scandal. She's even featured on a song called 'Sexting' by drag performer Sherry Vine (it's an unreleased song fans can get with a charity promotion for her music album 'Cho Dependant' that ends Friday).

But it is a dangerous practice, at least for the easily embarrassed ... and those prone to typing in the wrong phone number. "If you're going to be sexting, check the number," warned Cho. "I was sexting with this guy I was doing it with, and I was like..." Well, 'The View' bleeped the next part. If you can read lips, you might catch it.

The mortifying part was the phone call Cho then received from her mother, to whom she had inadvertently sent the message. Her mom misunderstood the intention of Cho's sexting, because she wanted to make sure she had a meal ready.

Margaret Cho talks about Tracy Morgan on 'Access Hollywood Live'Last week, comedian and '30 Rock' star Tracy Morgan got into trouble for a stand-up routine that contained a homophobic rant. Monday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), Margaret Cho said the comments hurt her, and also talked about the new season of 'Drop Dead Diva.'

"Well, I was really hurt by it," said Cho, who has appeared with Morgan on '30 Rock.' "Any time anybody says anything homophobic in any context, it just murders me." Morgan has apologized, and Cho said she would be willing to work with Morgan on understanding homophobia. "I've had such an experience with homophobic violence, and I can understand that, so I can explain it to him, also."

'Ghost Whisperer' - 'On Thin Ice' Recap

Ghost Whisperer
(S05E17) "What is happening to me?" - Damon

What's happening to you, Damon? You are the haunted character of the week that Melinda and company try to help. Same old, same old. This week's installment of 'Ghost Whisperer' was pretty much a filler episode that didn't offer character or show mythology development. I know, I know, not every single episode can move the year's main storylines along.

Luckily, the culprit of the week was not that easy to pinpoint and the comic book theme was pretty cool, especially when the last shot before each commercial was comic-book panel style. Sadly, these cool tidbits were overshadowed by a really badly done fantasy sequence.

Review: 'Ghost Whisperer' - 'Dead to Me'

Ghost Whisperer
(S05E14) "Who died and made you the expert?" - Avery to Melinda

This last new episode of 'Ghost Whisperer' before the Olympics hiatus (even though CBS is not airing the Olympics) not only offered us funny girl Margaret Cho as Ned's Occult Anthropology professor, who didn't believe in what she was teaching, but also pushed the dark side of the show's mythology thanks to an object Melinda and company don't like at all: a Ouija board.

Even with the introduction of the mysterious Ouija board, the episode didn't offer much new info about how the good and dark sides work, but it was interesting to see Cho's character, Professor Avery Grant, cope with the fact that was she was teaching actually had some truth to it. However, the most intriguing scene was the final one when the Ouija board confirmed something Melinda didn't want to be true...

Margaret Cho Speaks Her Mind on Prop 8, Miss California & Why Brains Trump Beauty

by Katy Kroll, posted Jul 10th 2009 6:00AM
The always outspoken Margaret Cho has tackled issues of race, sexuality and weight in her stand-up comedy, and she was the first Asian-American female to have a sitcom in the U.S., 1994's short-lived 'All-American Girl.' Over the years Cho's brash sense of humor and outspoken support of gay rights have earned her a devoted following.

In the new Lifetime series 'Drop Dead Diva' (premieres Sunday, July 12), Cho plays the sidekick to a recently deceased model trapped in an overweight brainiac's body.

Cho talked to AOL TV about the ideals of beauty, why she thinks Miss California Carrie Prejean deserved to lose her crown and why she's saving her body for Kat Von D. -- By Katy Kroll

Drop Dead Diva -- An early look

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 9th 2009 10:16AM
brooke_elliott_margaret_cho_drop_dead_divaCertain shows seem to be perfect for certain television networks. That's the point of programming, no doubt, and Lifetime has done a good job filling their female-centric niche with TV movies and series like Army Wives. That said, I think there will soon be a new favorite on Lifetime and it's called Drop Dead Diva. It's chick-flick, rom-com for weekly TV viewers, and while men might enjoy the whimsical plot and attractive characters, this is a show that ladies will adore.

If you were talking high concept like a Hollywood pitchman, you could describe Drop Dead Diva as Ally McBeal for the Lane Bryant set. Or maybe it's Sara Lee meets Heaven Can Wait. However, you put it, Drop Dead Diva is a switcheroo story about a vapid, but lovable, gorgeous size 2 model who dies at the exact same time as a brilliant, generous size 16 workaholic attorney, and in one of those wonderful Hollywood comedy devices, shallow Deb's spirit winds up in good Jane's body.
