LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Comedian Margaret Cho and her artist husband Al Ridenour have decided to end their 11-year open marriage and go their separate ways.

The bisexual entertainer talked about her relationship and why it worked on an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? in January.

"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 said. "I don't really think about it more than that, it's just family."

"It's been really, really hard for her," Us Weekly quoted an unidentified source as saying about the couple's breakup. "She's going through a really rough time and she's really sad about it."

No reason was given for the split.

Cho, 46, is best known for her standup act and performance on TV's Drop Dead Diva.
