Melissa annoys the living **** out of me. She is worse than any male whore I know. Gets married, had kids and then gets bored and looks for new young blood and moves on. She gives lesbian/gay marriage a bad name.

Umm, yeah, "marriage" trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes. Either she's having it, or "causing" it.

Melissa is aging a bit. She won't be able to attract the pretty young things much longer. Better find one and settle down instead of hit and run 'partnerships' that produce kids left to be raised by a single woman.

Tammy Lynn Michaels is a very good actress who was on her way to the top after her hilarious role in the TV show Popular. I was disappointed she took herself out of the game by hooking up with that old hag. Good riddance. Come back to acting.

Melissa wants to sow her wild oats before she turns into Joan Rivers. She likes the single life, screw the mate and the kids. The primary problem is that she hasn't had a real hit in years.

The world is going to find out that Tammy is mentally unstable and that is why Melissa broke up with her. Go read Tammy's blog. Sad, but this is true. She is getting worse. I seriously doubt Tammy had to borrow money from neighbors. Give me a break.

Melissa Etheridge SUCKS and has been over for years now. All of her "New" songs sound exactly like the old ones. She is also hideous looking in that pic. In that photo you can really see what an overly made-up, pock-marked, crater-faced Witch she really is. EWE

@Jules... how do you know she didn't have to scrape for money. Tammy made the choice to be a stay at home mom - she ditched her career 5+ years ago. She has no income and Melissa obviously wants to leave her high and dry.

How would you feel if this were a hetero couple and a man left his housewife to care for his kids with no income? Definition of deadbeat dad, right?

Melissa seems to be taking advantage of the "domestic partnership" status if their relationship by trying to walk away scott free. Not fair to Tammy who gave up her livelihood for Melissa and their family. It's certainly not fair to those babies.

#11...if that is true, Melissa should be helping her partner, not leaving her. However, there have been accusations of infidelity by Melissa which she hasn't refuted as far as I know. And if Melissa tries to walk away without paying alimony, that is not going to help the cause for gay marriage rights. She needs to take care of her spouse who put her career on hold to be the wife.

Oh well, two women aren't in a real marriage anyway. Law or no law. So who cares? BTW, when did partner start meaning spouse?! Whenever I heard that I think they are talking about a business.
