The 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards take place this Sunday, and as always, we'll be live blogging the event. But before the stars walk the red carpet in their Sunday finest, let's take a look at some memorable beauty looks worn by celebrities at SAG Awards past. Some are extreme, while others are simply lovely. Which ones are your favorites?
Margaret Cho knows open relationships can work, and she talked to New York magazine about her 11-year-strong open marriage.
"We’ve been together since 1999, although we’ve always had an open relationship. We’ve never had a monogamous relationship. It’s very comfortable for me, and it feels like something that I need. I just need the idea of the freedom and I need the ability to be myself and do what I want. Conventional marriage to me is scary and I feel like we have more solidity."
Open relationships always sound good in theory (better than bored), but have you ever seen one last for any substantial period of time?
Audrina Patridge isn't the only one feeling the effects of Dancing With the Stars in her entire body. Margaret Cho is getting a full-body workout, too, and it's for the first time — ever! The comedienne-actress, 41, told People that competing on DWTS is her first introduction to exercise: "I'm so into it. I've never worked out — never. Now that I've been moving, I realize how good it feels."
Margaret hasn't been weighing in her progress — perhaps taking a cue from former contestant Kelly Osbourne? — but she definitely sees and feels the difference: "I can see it in my face. I can feel it in my whole body. I have lost a lot of weight." And just like Kelly, Margaret says she is sticking to her newfound love of exercise when the show ends. Margaret and Kelly both have the same dance partner in common, Louis van Amstel. I'm thinking he might be some kind of motivator!
The takeaway: it's never too late to start exercising. So if you've been playing with the idea of joining a gym, hitting the trail, or heading out for a walk, now is the time!

With an all-star cast including Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, John C. Reilly, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, and Margaret Cho, "Prop 8 — The Musical" harmoniously chronicles how California came to pass its gay marriage ban.
Jack Black appears as Jesus Christ to point out that the Bible says a lot of interesting things, like you can stone your wife, or sell your daughter into slavery. He says that Prop 8's supporters simply pick and chose teachings from the Holy Book that support their social agenda. And Neil Patrick Harris points out that the gay wedding industry could save the US economy! This is all explained in song of course!
Check out the musical put together by Funny or Die. Do you think satire or song can help change the minds of those who voted to ban gay marriage?
GiggleSugar Interviews Margaret Cho! The busy comedian/activist/all-around rad diva took some time out of her schedule to talk with Giggle about her many projects, including VH1's The Cho Show, what it's like to have a day named after you in San Francisco, and who is hotter: Lindsay Lohan or Samantha Ronson?

When I think of Margaret Cho, I think of her hilarious standup act in flashes of representative scenes. There's Margaret telling everyone how weird it is to be an Asian American on an airplane with a flight attendant offering you Asian chicken salad. ("That is not the salad of my people!") There's Margaret imitating her mother's cute Korean accent and puzzling over gay men and their, uh, interest in "the ass." And then there's Margaret imagining how period-centric the world would be if men menstruated. The busy comedian/activist/all-around rad diva took some time out of her schedule to talk with us about her many projects, including VH1's The Cho Show (the second episode airs tomorrow), what it's like to have a day named after you in San Francisco, and who is hotter: Lindsay Lohan or Samantha Ronson?

Wanna know Margaret Cho? You're in luck, because the hilarious comedian is getting her own reality series. The Cho Show premieres tomorrow at 11:00 p.m. on VH1 (check the trailer here) and it's a hilarious look into her smart, funny, raunchy, and endearing world.
Cho is known for her riffs on race, sexuality, and saucy topics that most other comics won't touch. And she's not shy about talking about her long journey to self-acceptance — as you'll see here. Read on!
On The Cho Show, you mention that you didn’t feel glamorous as a girl, but now you do. How did you start accepting—and loving—your looks?
It was a process, and it is still a struggle, but I try to compliment myself as much as I can. I try to be as loving as I can toward myself, but it is hard. Growing up and being told that you are ugly and fat — and then going into show business, where when I first came on the scene, all people could talk about was how ugly and fat I was. I realize now that had a lot to do with racism. People had never seen an Asian-American face on TV, so they panicked and said I was ugly because they were so racist they didn't know what else to do. So now I just don't value those opinions. I am beautiful; that is all anyone needs to know about me.
