Cho was married to Evan Mark Gottlieb in 2008 and together they have a daughter Louisa Simone. Gottlieb, the president of GOCO Development was born and raised in Florida. The couple went through a bitter divorce in 2012. They are now doing what is best for their daughter. The television news anchor says she and Gottlieb divorced following a nasty legal battle over the renovation of their Westchester home. Cho says she just walked out of her Yonkers home, taking her daughter along with her. The couple had bought the home, a huge mansion with nine bedrooms and four bathrooms valued at $2.2 million, in 2011, but they did not live there for very long as things quickly went south for their relationship. A contractor sued the couple accusing them of cheating him of over $100,000 for upgrading their home. According to Cho and Gottlieb, they had a verbal agreement that the bill for all construction done would not exceed $343,000. The couple’s lawyer, Matthew Parrott, said that Gottlieb and Cho had not realized the extent of the “damage” caused by the construction company until they bought in another building company to finish the job. He said they are looking “forward to having their rights vindicated in court”. Cho filed for divorce from Gottlieb in 2012.
