Margaret Cho Talks About Body Issues On Dancing With The Stars

Even though Margaret Cho was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, she took some valuable lessons about body-image issues away from the experience.

She wrote on her blog:

“One thing I learned about myself on “Dancing with the Stars” is how startlingly insecure I am about my body. I am thin enough, I suppose, but I know I am not as healthy as I can be. I felt clumsy and awkward among the svelte, swanlike figures of Jennifer and Brandi and Audrina – I am not ‘in’ my body as they seem to be, and my dancing was heavily influenced by that.”

Cho struggled with dancing on stage due to her self-image issues:

“What sucks is I danced beautifully in rehearsals whenever my wonderful partner Louis and I were alone, but this was completely frustrating because when we would get out on the ballroom floor I couldn’t replicate it because I felt so weird about the way I looked. This hit me as so strange because I thought I had left all these physical insecurities and self doubt behind, but what truly happened was I was just in denial about how much self hatred I had left in me.”

Despite all of her problems on the show, Margaret has learned a lot and improved her life because of the experience:

“I will be back in the audience next week to cheer on the stars and their pro dancers, feeling radiant and confident and happy, knowing I will dance again another day. And though it was hard, I have fond memories of dancing on that floor. Although it unearthed a world of pain I didn’t even know existed, there were moments where I have never felt so beautiful (especially in the gay pride rainbow flag dress).”

We love it! You’re beautiful, Margaret! Keep doing what you do!
