"Why did Bristol do Dancing with the Stars? I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it." That's what Margaret Cho wrote last month about Bristol Palin, and after the Dancing with the Stars finalist blasted the comedienne on Facebook, it seems Cho is ready to back down a bit.

"I didn’t know if it was true," Cho told Billy Bush from Access Hollywood. "I was just reporting on stuff that I was gossiping about. I just wanted to say what I thought and mostly I just wanted to say that I was upset because people were criticizing her because of her body, because I felt that before and I hated that when it happened to me. So, I wanted to say, "She’s not fat, she’s a beautiful girl!'"

"She was great, what she was doing and she did her best. But, you know, there were other things at work, and if Sarah Palin is trying to run for President, I wish she would just admit it, because I want to stop it."

Of course Bristol wrote that most of Margaret's theories were of the crackpot variety, but that doesn't mean Cho actually cares. "I didn’t know if it was true, and I didn’t care. Its just gossip, I’m just reporting on the gossip." And what of Bristol's crack about KD Lang and the Indigo Girls? "[Bristol's joke was good because] I’m trying to ask KD Lang out for a date," Cho laughed. Water under the bridge time?
