Margaret Cho Is On The Loose

Margaret Cho is on the loose! Where shall we begin? Season five of "Drop Dead Diva" on Lifetime seems like a good starting point, follow that up with new tour dates for her acclaimed comedy show "Mother".

Not to mention her three women fresh out of jail YouTube series "In Transition" and she's baaaaaack co-hosting "The View" Thursday July 25th and Friday July 26th, hoping to take over one of the vacant seats.

There are so many other things I could say, instead of reading my shopping list let's let Margaret tell us herself.

MS: "Drop Dead Diva" is back! Did you think that would happen since Lifetime initially cancelled it?

MC: You never really know with TV. You never know how things are going to go, that's the nature of it. What's really great is the fans really love "Drop Dead Diva" and they wanted to see more.

MS: It's a cute show, I've seen it a couple of times. It puts a smile on your face when you're in a bad mood.

MC: I like that.

MS: Sandra Bernhard is a guest this season.

MC: She's amazing, I'm such a fan of hers. We talked about what a sexist Jerry Lewis is when it comes to women in comedy, it's disturbing. I was talking to her about how amazing she was in "The King of Comedy".

MS: Oh she's so good in that!

MC: Sooooo good! It's legendary, a great movie! I think it's Martin Scorsese at his best. With Sandra as a mad stalker...she is so hilarious and so sexy.

MS: She scared the Hell out of me in that!

MC: I love her when she's scary, that's when she's at her best. She's just fabulous in every way, as a comedian, actress and a musician. She is someone I admire tremendously so it was great to have her as part of our show.

                                               Margaret's YouTube Series "In Transition"

MS: By the way "Mistress Lina" I was on season 2 of "Where The Bears Are" and so were you!

MC: Oh that's great! I haven't seen it yet, what part did you play?

MS: I got some good face time in the Faultline Bar scene.

MC: Oh My God I have to watch it. I'm saving it up to watch it all at once, I hate to watch one episode and not be able to see the next one, I have to see it all at once.

MS: Well I was caught of guard by your role as "Mistress Lina" when you pulled the demure Asian Woman thing and when the Bears fell for it you called them racist. (laughs)

MC: I know, it was fun!

MS: Like, where did that come from?! Sorry I sound like Janis Joplin today, I got the rasps this morning.

MC: That's OK.

MS: So I saw you on "The View" was that fun?

MC: That is the job I want most of all. I am in the running to be a host.

MS: Oh wow, that's awesome!

MC: It's a great thing, it would be so cool, I would love it!

MS: Personally I wished Elisabeth Hasselbeck had been on the day you were I would have liked to see an exchange between the two of you. I don't think she's stupid, I think she doesn't articulate her opinions in a clear manner.

MC: She's great, they're all great for their own different points of view, ideas and jokes. It's a real rock-n-roll sort of thing, they all play their different instruments and I'd really love be a part of that band.

MS: How was doing "In Bed With Joan"?

MC: It was a blast! I love Joan Rivers, and I love going over to her house. It's so exciting, and she is so hysterical. I've know her for a long time, and I respect her and love her so dearly.

MS: Like I told a friend recently when you are 80 you want to be Joan Rivers, she has the stamina of a 20 year old and still has her wits about her.

MC: Totally! She is so cool and has such a strong work ethic. An unbelievable presence, such a cool lady.

MS: Since I know touring is your favorite thing, hit me with when you are doing it some more.

MC: At the end of August I will be playing some gigs in Georgia, Athens & Atlanta - I will also be touring all over Europe.
