The Drop Dead Diva alum, 46, opened up about the couple's relationship and her sexuality in August 2013. "I'm married to a man but I'm bisexual so I like both," she said during an appearance on The Real. "We got together because we both have this [idea of] 'I just don't want to have sex with the same person my whole life. That's just gross.'"

Cho later explained that she and Ridenour decided on a non-monogamous marriage as soon as they met, and it always "worked out" for the both of them. "I think when you have an open relationship you have to have boundaries, but ultimately, you want emotional monogamy with somebody no matter what," she explained during an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? in January 2014. "I don't really think about it more than that, it's just family."
