Inside Melissa And Tammy Etheridge's Split

It sounds amicable, but still sad.

A source close to Melissa and Tammy Etheridge says of their split after nine years together:

"There's no third party involved. They just drifted apart over time. There's no animosity whatsoever — they are on friendly terms. They're co-parenting their twins [Miller and Johnnie Rose, 3]. They are living apart but share custody of the kids."

No drama there, but it sounds like they're doing what's best for their family.

We hope the kids are doing okay.

    They both need the rod of correction, perhaps on top of a pinball machine 'The Accused' style!

    No drama? Please! Read Tammy's blog. That says it all. She is devastated! This is obviously Melissa's doing. Melissa spent the last 3 albums singing about how much she loved her. Now all of the sudden they have drifted apart? Bull! I won't be surprised if in the very near future there will be another young lady on Melissa's arm. I hope I'm wrong but I doubt it.

    Welcome to January

    Two future suicides like Perezee

    IT WAS NEVER A LEGITIMATE RELATIONSHIP TO BEGIN WITH. HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SICKNESS AND A MENTAL ILLNESS. I JUST FEEL SORRY FOR TAMMY'S KIDS TO HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO THAT TYPE OF PERVERSION. HOPEFULLY THEY GET COUNSELING AND THEIR MOM TURNS HER LIFE AROUND AND FINDS A MAN WITH A BIG COCK

    why is one always pretty and the others a dog ? why, why why….why cant there be two pretty lesbos together or two uglys ??? who made the rules ?



  7. 7

    I HATE THOSE LESBIAN COUPLES WHERE YOU CANT TELL WHICH ONE IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE GUY AND WHICH IS THE CHICK. AT LEAST WITH THESE TWO BITCHES YOU CAN TELL TAMMY IS THE CHICK AND MELISSA IS THE BIG BURLY GUY

    WATCH OUT TAMMY ROSIE'S ON THE PROWL!!

    Re: h8terboi – These girls are fine, 'sides they don't want a big cock, they want a big TONGUE, duh! Is someone being a naughty little attention whore? But you know what? Nothing a big wang chung can't cure for you baby! Once you got wang—you ain't never complain h8terboi! ;) So come on over and I'll bend you over like Rover!

    ANOTHER old story.

    Re: KEEFER – OMG!!! That's EXACTLY what I was going to post! I know, huh? Look at Ellen and Portia, Rosie and Kelly. And lesbos never look like those hot chicks in porn. I don't know who makes the rules, either. I blame Donald Trump. Hey why not?

    Re: JackWad – hahah thats fucking awesome!!!!



  15. 15

    Etheridge was screwing around with some tattooed slut, so I hear.



  16. 16

    This is the most immature bunch of comments I have ever read. A family just broke up. There are two little kids who used to see one of their mommies every day who now won't and all you asswipes can talk about is how Tammy's got big tits and blah blah blah.

    Regardless of how people feel about homosexuality you at least must admit that there are two sad little kids over there right now that don't deserve to have their family talked about this way.

    Grow up and get a heart

    Re: Why_You_Ask? – I can believe that. She's admitted that she can't keep it in her pants.

    Re: Rintendo – NO YOU IDIOT THAT WASNT A FAMILY–IT WAS TWO SEXUAL PERVERTS EXPOSING THEIR KIDS TO A SICK AND IMMORAL; LIFESTYLE. MELISSA ETHERIDGE DOESNT HAVE A COCK, SHE DIDNT KNOCK TAMMY UP, SHE IS NOT THOISE KIDS "DAD". THOSE POOR KIDS, JUST THINK HOW EMBARRASSING THAT WOULD BE TO BE FORCED TO CALL THAT UGLY DYKE "DAD". AND THINK HOW MORTIFYING THAT WOULD BE TO HAVE YOUR FRIENDS SEE THAT YOU "DAD" IS A BIG UGLY DIESEL DYKE. THOSE KIDS ARE PROBABLY RELIEVED THAT THIS SICK LIFE IS BEHIND THEM, JUST LIKE THEY WOULD BE RELIEVED IF A PARENT STOPPED DRINKING OR DOING DRUGS. LETS ALL JUST PRAY FOR THEM AND HOPE THAT TAMMY MEETS AN APPROPRIATE MALE PARTNER AND CAN REPAIR SOME OF THE DAMAGE TO HER KIDS



  19. 19

    I WANT TO DO TAMMY DOGGY STYLE FROM BEHIND WHILE SQUEEZING HER HUGE BREASTS



  20. 20

    Shameful with so may fighting for the right to marry. They needed to set a good example. Why fight for something you won't even hold onto?



  21. 21

    can anyone name a gay couple that has made it? (and don't list ellen and portia…it has barely begun) I mean for real, their whole lives made the commitment. Maybe people would be more open to giving them the option to marry if they were more serious. I realize that divorce in this country is still like 50%, but 50% is still better than what they're tracking



  22. 22

    Melissa gets out of both of her relationships when her children are very young and in the needy crying stages. I bet Melissa will have another girl on her arm in no time if not now in the back ground waiting to come out as a new couple!!



  23. 23

    kids are never ok when their parents split up. never



  24. 24

    Melissa is MUCH older than Tammy. After a while, the novelty gets old too and there just isn't anything in common.



  25. 25

    Re: h8terboi – Yes, you indeed reflect a decent and clean lifestyle with the sorts of vitriolic, hateful, misogynistic posts about doggy style. Yep. That's what she has to look forward to.

    So, if a child had to live with his grandmother, or a mom and its grandmother–thats two women, would you feel the same?

    Kids respond to love. When they get to school they may get picked on, yeah, but they might get picked on if their parents were fat or they were bad athletes, or they had pimples, or they were fat, or they picked their nose once in class, or they couldn't hold it in kindergarten…

    School isn't everything, it shouldn't be. It is where you go to learn. That was all it was ever intended to be. Your family is everything and where there is love, there is a family. They will miss their other mother whether you like it or not.

    As for me being an idiot, well Sir, I hardly think you are about to challenge anyone to a battle of wits anytime soon. Seems you've left the iocane powder at home…

    Re: dreamygrl – heehee!! ;) he NEEDED A GOOD OLD-FASHION DRILLIN! Since I'm actually a chic, I intend to do it with a 12 inch strap on, and tickle his tonsels for being naughty!



  27. 27

    sound of crickets chirping



  28. 28

    Does that mean Melissa will be too depressed to sing tomorrow?? I'm being paid to go to her concert. Fuck it. I'm going to the beach.



  29. 29

    Re: wishperezwasgood4gays – My partner and I for one. We have been together 10 yrs and are just as much in love as we were in the beginning. Shall we start naming all the straight couples that have split?



  30. 30

    Re: h8terboi – I promise you, no homosexual in this world gives a fuck what you think of them. So just keep the ignorant comments to yourself. Thanks.



  31. 31

    those poor kids… not only do they have two moms, they're also getting divorced, wth…!



  32. 32

    POPULAR!
    love that show…



  33. 33

    What else is there to say….Melissa gets bored easily and the population she has to choose from until recently is limited to average people. It is pretty obvious she likes falling in love but living a daily routine of love bores her. My advice….find someone that doesn't want kids, likes to travel and insists on no routine. The writing is on the wall. It is obvious where she goes….never move in with her.



  34. 34

    Re: AnnaNicoleSmith – And we're all to wonder why women are regarded as objects, like bearers of deaths who deserve to be annihilated in every way as you say, and not as Life itself since we were born with the Gift. People here have more problem(s) with homosexuality instead of woman-haters???!!!! How sad and yet everyone wonders why women are treated in the manner they are. Not one to speak for our respect and dignity as human beings and symbols of Love that we are.



  35. 35

    IDK what went on here, or what the truth is, but I DO wish more couples would stay amicable for their kids.



  36. 36

    You wouldn't be so kind if it were a heterosexual couple breaking up. You'd be slashing them left and right and digging up some kind of dirt.



  37. 37

    Re: Rintendo – There are actually more then 2 children in this family. Some years back, when Melissa Etheridge was involved with another woman, Julie Cypher, Melissa was artificially inseminated with the sperm of singer David Cosby, & bore 2 children, a boy & a girl. When Melissa's
    relationship with Julie Cypher broke up, they shared custody of the 2 children Melissa bore. Now it's more of a shame, because it's not only the children that Tammy bore for her partnership with Melissa, it's the children that Melissa had by David Cosby, but raised with Julie Cypher. Being gay has nothing to do with how much a parent loves her children. But these children, especially the ones that Melissa gave birth to, will probably have relationship problems of their own, whether they are gay or straight. The question here is, why can't Melissa hang onto a partner?



  38. 38

    Hell, they were together a lot longer than many folks are! So they should be counting their lucky stars!



  39. 39

    kids suffer when straight or gay parents split up.



  40. 40

    LEAVE IT TO GAYS TO BREAK UP A FAMILY …. THEY 'THINK" they are a couple, parents, but into it for themselves, press and career …. pity the poor children.



  41. 41

    THOSE KIDS ARE FUCKED UP FOR HAVING FROWN UP IN A PERVERTED ENVIRONMET WITH LESBIANS. THEY WILL PROBABLY BECOME HOMOSEXUALS THEMSELVES. SO SAD. ALL GAYS SHOULD BE STERILIZED TO PREVENT KIDS FROM GROWING UP IN GAY HOUSEHOLDS. ITS ABOUT PROTECTING CHILDREN FROM THAT LIFESTYLE



  42. 42

    TAMMY NEEDS TO START SPREADIN FOR A REAL MAN, NOT SOME WANNA BE SICK DYKE WITH A SMELLY KUNT



  43. 43

    Lez B real, Melissas' a weird person, it was probably her fault. Now maybe Tammy can get back to acting.



  44. 44

    Re: cookiepuss71 – Tammy loved the$$$$…so did Julie



  45. 45

    Re: KEEFER – LOL! I AGREE!



  46. 46

    Melissa's been cheating… for months…. most of hollywood knows this. What i wonder is since the "rags" (including this one) usually out EVERYTHING, why AREN'T they naming who the other woman is??? Maybe these inside scoops aren't so "inside" afterall.
