Margaret Cho Separates From Husband Of Eleven Years

Margaret Cho has separated from her husband, Al Ridneour, of eleven years. According to US Weekly, sources have confirmed that the couple, who have been in an open relationship since 2003, decided to split.

Cho isn’t taking the impending divorce easy either. According to someone close to the comedian, “It’s been really, really hard for her. She’s going through a really rough time and she’s really sad about it.”

Back in 2013, she opened up to The Real about her unique marriage. “I’m married to a man but I’m bisexual so I like both. We got together because… we both have this [idea], ‘I just don’t want to have sex with the same person my whole life. That’s just gross.’”

Cho continued, “We have a really big house. It’s kind of like if we wanna have that, it’s like, ‘You can stay on your side or I’ll stay on my side.’ When I see her, I’ll make her dinner…. Oh yeah. I’ve definitely been in the house.”

She spoke about the idea of emotional monogamy instead of physical monogamy back in January of 2014.

“I think when you have an open relationship you have to have boundaries, but ultimately, you want emotional monogamy with somebody no matter what. I don’t really think about it more than that, it’s just family.”

Margaret opened up to Queerty about facing criticism about her open marriage. “A lot of people have questioned my marriage and questioned the validity of my marriage, but I’ve been married 51 times longer than Kim Kardashian and that guy she was with. 51 times longer. 51 times! I mean that’s, like, significant.”

In the wake of her split, Cho took to Twitter to address the unfortunate haters that are leaving comments about her marriage.

Prior to her marriage with Al Ridneour, Cho dated Quentin Tarantino.
