Margaret Cho wasn't laughing when she learned Tuesday that she'd done her last dance on "Dancing With the Stars."In the end, it became a devil of a situation for the one who got 6, 6, 6.

Comedienne Margaret Cho is the latest star to go.

She and her partner, Louis van Amstel, are out after three weeks of competition.

Cho said she's proud she got to participate.

"I feel like I opened myself to a whole new group of people and I'm so honored that I got to do this," Cho said. "I'm honored I got to dance for everyone and I had such a great time."

Cho is known for her bold comedy style, but her partner said he is pleased he brought out another side of her.

"Margaret dared to be vulnerable and I think that is a huge victory for every American watching the show that feels weird or different or does not accept her or himself," van Amstel said. "That was what she did in front of everybody and that is a true victory."

Now that she's done dancing on the show -- until the finale -- her feet have time to recuperate from the experience.

"They are so messed up," Cho said. "I can't wait to get these calluses shaved off. It's really disgusting. I feel like Fred Flintstone. I could start a car with these feet."

For the remaining couples, next week brings one of two dances.

"We have the rumba, so let's get ready to rumba," said Kurt Warner's partner, Anna Trebunskaya.

"I just got back from Argentina, so I went there for three weeks to study the Argentine tango," said Rick Fox's partner, Cheryl Burke. "I'm very excited to do it."
