Following her divorce, Margaret Cho was once set to marry fellow comedian Rocco Stowe, though surprisingly little ink has been spilled about the couple’s romance. However, we know that the two were still engaged as of 2018, as Cho mentioned in an interview with The Business Times.
Back in June 2017, Stowe addressed the relationship during an episode of the “Second Chances Podcast.” “I had a date last night,” Stowe said. “… I’m dating this girl, she’s boiling, she’s amazing, and last night was the first time I spent the night in her bed.” He explained that he wasn’t in love with her yet, since they’d only been together for “three weeks” at this point, but that he was really into her nonetheless. Stowe added, “She’s a caretaker. She’s really nice and sweet and just very giving.”
That October, Cho returned the favor and publicly spoke highly of Stowe. “It’s fun to have a comedian. We laugh and sing, do yoga, cook, and have a great time together,” the comedian told The Scotsman. But, notably, she added, “I’ve outgrown having an open relationship because polyamory is not exactly who I think I am now. I think it’s cool that people do it, but I’m so jealous of this relationship. I think people do it [polyamory] because they don’t want to miss any thrill, but the jealousy is part of what real intimacy is.”
