Melissa Etheridge recently announced that she is calling it quits with her wife of 7 years, Tammy Lynn. The singer opened up about the difficulties, raising her kids and what's coming next.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On the break-up:
“It’s been a long time coming. It’s hard, as any of these things are. It’s hard to do it in public because there’s no easy sound bite to say, this is what happened and so this is what’s going on. And even if I did, the perspectives would always be different so there’s a lot of sadness. And yet, she’ll always be in my life because we have two children.”

On coping with being single again:
“That’s a lot of work, that’s a lot of figuring out.”

On the kids:
“They’re wonderful. There’s a lot of interaction because of the kids and we keep that going and that’s good. Being a mom takes up most of my time and most of my energy.”

On the next step:
“I’m going to be touring all summer and the kids will come with me."

She's doing as well as can be expected!

One step at a time, bb.

    always loved melissa - such a strong woman and I'm sure she'll use that strength to get this also……



  2. 2

    Not wife lesbian girlfriend. Poor kids. Maybe Rosie's on the make



  3. 3

    WHO GIVES A SHIT???????????????????



  4. 4

    Melissa looks like Grandpa Munster in this photo. Seriously, take a look. I'm fan but I really hate that photo of her.



  5. 5

    WHICH kids will come with her? She has FOUR.

    Good one about Grandpa Munster!!

    the only good thing I ever saw Ethridge do was a "letter u" feature on Sesame Street.

    No one should buy tickets to her shows. She's created two fractured families now, enough is enough. Her "look I'm bald" on-stage display was embarrassing and insipid.

    Team Tammy!!!



  7. 7

    She's being as strong as she can be.



  8. 8

    She and Kate Gosselin would make a cute couple.



  9. 9

    The interview could have been titled "When Has-Beens Speak"



  10. 10

    LOL actually they're TAMMY'S children, dumb old fat Melissa !!! Good luck with that one!

    This split is really sad. They both seem like great women, who really loved each other. It's terrible that it didn't last, because Tammy seems utterly devastated, and divorce sucks for kids. I'm surprised Melissa said it was a long time coming, since Tammy said she felt very blind-sided… sad, sad.

    Re: Poindexter-X – LOLROFLMAO That's a goodie



  13. 13

    What kind of a filthy scumbag is Etheridge tthat she is humiliating her wife in public? Etheridge has just destroyed her children's lives. Of course, for an untalented, ugly hosebag- no surprise



  14. 14

    I hope Melissa's screwed kids give her a kick in her fat, sagging, fake rock ass. Those kids will be the ones hurt by this POS.



  15. 15

    No one cares…..it's your business and we don't need to know.



  16. 16

    I FEEL SO SORRY FOR THOSE KIDS TO HAVE TO GROW UP IN A SICK, IMMORAL AND DYSFUNCTIONAL ENVIRONMENT WITH "TWO MOMS". THE BEST THING FOR THEM WOULD BE TO NOT BE EXPOSED TO THAT LIFESTYLE EVER AGAIN AND TO GET THERAPY. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL HEAL WITH TIME AND THIER TRUE AND ONLY MOM, THE BIG TITTED TAMMY WILL MEAT A NICE MAN AND BEGIN HAVING NORMAL PENILE SEX

    Re: iloverickymartin – BWAH!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! *wipes tear*! GRANDPA MUNSTER!! I can just see her giggling and running to the dungeon to whip up a potion to make us forget that SHE was the one who cheated/lied/broke the heart of her children's mother this time! But now I can't be mad at her for it, because I LURVE Grandpa!



  18. 18

    Seriously, who cares and why does Etheridge feel she owes anyone outside her family an explanation as to why they're breaking up? Celebrities say they want privacy but then the minute something happens, they're out there spilling their guts!

    All hail Sandra Bullock for keeping her mouth shut!l



  19. 19

    Lather, rinse, repeat. Her relationships are all the same pattern.



  20. 20

    Melissa's teeth are yellow/gray and small. Must be from years of eating acidic coohcie.



  21. 21

    I just wonder if they worked as hard on working on their relationship as they did on pushing Prop 8?



  22. 22

    Re: iloverickymartin – LOL! I AGREE!



  23. 23

    How many kids does she have now? Four?
