Margaret Cho: 'Dancing With the Stars' was 'scary'

Margaret Cho, Louis van Amstel talk after the third 'Dancing With the Stars' elimination. Margaret Cho says following her elimination from Dancing With the Stars on its third week that performing on the ballroom dancing show was "scary" but that she was proud she got to do it.

The 41-year-old comedienne joins ousted contestants David Hasselhoff, who was eliminated on September 21 at the first results show of the 11th season, and pop singer Michael Bolton, who was voted off last week and sang at Tuesday's results show.

"It was an emotionally very fulfilling experience, a very trying experience, a very scary experience," Cho told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "It's a really incredible show because you're able to do some many different things. You see what you can do with your body. I'm so proud that I got to do it."

One thing she won't miss? The damage that weeks of dancing has done to her feet.

"I can't wait to get these calluses shaved off," she said. "I feel like Fred Flintstone. I can start a car with these feet. I mean, it's just really disgusting. But now I can have my beautiful feet back."
