Melissa Etheridge's Ex Unleashes!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineWhen Celebrities BlogMelissa EtheridgeLGBT


She's back on the blog… and this is some hardcore shiz!

It's no secret to anyone who has been following along that Tammy Lynn Michaels was completely blindsided by Melissa Etheridge and their breakup last year. For the most part, Melissa has been the only one talking trash about their relationship and if we may say so, pulling some very low punches.

But today, following the news that Melissa has started up a relationship with Nurse Jackie creator Linda Wallem, Tammy took to her blog to unleash a lot of unresolved feelings and divulge some secrets that the public might not even be aware of.

It's pretty long, so let's hit you with the HIGHlights.

First, she recaps her readers on the fact that Melissa made it seem like they were taking a trial separation from one another to work things out when she was actually tossing her out for good:

i moved out november 23rd 2009
she said it would help
i was convinced it would
too and i trusted there was
no one else
i didn't know
there was someone moving in
as i was moving out


three weeks later a box of new toys
was delivered and her assistant brought
it to my rental house as a mistake
i opened it
and that's when i felt something was up

Then, she goes on to reveal that this was the moment she learned that Melissa was cheating on her with someone else. Though she doesn't outright say Linda was the woman, she hints that after listening to the songs on Melissa's album, she had a feeling she knew who it could be:

and then i listened to the album
and i understood
you don't want to work it out
oh you already have someone in the wings
oh you already have pined for another
oh you are done here

oh i have become another one of your exes

Then she starts to talk about the aftermath of their breakup in which she "begged" Melissa not to let the story break too soon after their split. Tammy writes that she wanted some time to "process my feelings before the public did" and that their "divorce should not be a mass emotional project." But her pleas were ignored and the story "leaked" three weeks before Melissa's last album dropped.

Obviously, this rant that seems much too late has been ignited by two things: time to heal and the report calling Melissa and Linda a "new" couple. Tammy addresses both situations in her poem, saying:

but i have had some time to let it digest, rip my stomach apart,
digest some more, and i think i'm in a better spot now.
sometimes reality takes a moment to settle in. you know, like if
you were standing in the pitch black, and suddenly you threw
on some intense 1500W bulbs around you?? you'd need to quint
and adjust and maybe be blind for a minute? okay. maybe vomit up
your stomach until you have a brand new lining, but hey, who
doesn't do that when their world turns upside down? :-)

so. you know. people magazine tries to get things right. they try to
clean things up for the famous folk- their sources are usually the publicist
for the celebrity. i'm here to clarify. well… i want to clarify without
dealing with getting sued for SLANDER (and paying someone), which would include
me saying that the two were involved while I was living there (it is still my house, by the way).
and i haven't gone just that far yet.

since april of 09? mmm…. one of my little sweet peas told me otherwise much
earlier than that, Pooper magazine.

they should have shut the bedroom door.

She goes on for much longer, explaining that she loves her kids and despite everything, they still come first and then casting blame on Melissa for all the pain that has befallen their family.

But this was the one line that stood out for us the most: "speak true, spread the peace, and have faith that we all walk the talk. "

Now, we hope she really lives up to that.

    As difficult and unfair as things may be, it is ALWAYS better for the kids to keep things private.

  2. 2

    My advice to Tammy is to get back to work, look fabulous so she can get someone wayyyyy hotter than Melissa (shouldn't be hard to do), quit the
    blog and the poems because we don't like them, and quit hating and move on.

    Best of luck to Tammy.

    i couldn't read the whole thing, its none of my business whatever drama is going on should be private for her sanity HOWEVER!! i hope this kick starts her career. For some damn reason she became Melissa's woman not known as Tammy! I would like her back on tv or doing something :)

    cold ass lesbian!

    you say that melissa etheridge has been talking crap about their relationship, but i know i've seen several of tammy lynn's crazy poetry style rants on here. in fact, the last one i recall is where she was complaining that she didn't have enough money for food. i was once given some good advice that i never forgot and everyone should also remember, "don't get into a relationship that you can't get out of". tammy lynn should have put some money away for a rainy day. shit happens, relationships end. if you're with someone who is the primary money earner, don't get caught in a situation where you're out in the cold if they decide to trade you in for a new model.

    Keep your personal family problems to your self for the sake of your kids. No one else cares. Your children will suffer.

    Boo hoo… life's a bitch. Get over it and move on. She needs to shut her hole. She's as bad as Michael Lohan

  9. 9

    Where is Nicole Julian? She would not take this.

  10. 10

    gay marriage is not the answer

  11. 11

    Bitch please, what you failed to include as part of the post is that the box of toys turned out to be a box of new dildos adn Tammy called whomever and told her to come and pick up the box of new dicks. Shit, if you're going to copy and paste the long ass dumb story then include the part about the new dicks on the kitchen counter. Idiot.

  12. 12

    I like iloverickymartin's advice - Melissa is one fugly broad, really, and Tammy can and will do better as well as do what is right by her children.

  13. 13

    Well your hope of "equality for all" is getting there, just as bad as normal hetrosexuals with the sniping, bad blood, accusations and such…congradulations….what will be even funnier is when Elton and his butt buddy have the outs….now that would be the shiz as you say

  14. 14

    Isn't it obvious Melissa Etheridge is a MAN stuck in a womans body (well kind of a women body)
    My GOD I would count my blessings to be out of the relationship…
    There's nothing WORSE than a LESBIAN that looks like a man with long blonde hair..

    I'm sorry but that's why civils unions would work alot better for Gays than marriage. Just sayin'. BTW, Tammy needs to get over it and move on!

  16. 16

    lol whats with the "poetry"—-I would be kicking her ass out as well!

  17. 17

    if i had money i would have a womanfriend like that

  18. 18

    Lives up to what? That last line is gibberish - it doesn't mean anything!

  19. 19

    Whaa whaa whaa! SHUT UP!!! Whining crybaby bitch and get a job. I don't think I've seen anything from Melissa but this girl is constantly putting out jibber jabber bullshit that makes little sense and calls it poetry. UGH She's annoying!

  20. 20

    Sickening Dykes–Burn in hell, all of you!

  21. 21

    Re: penny1206 – UMMM…I pretty much guessed what they meant by "toys" lol
    I was thinking that Melissa at least gets points for buying new ones and not using the old ones with the new girlfriend

  22. 22

    They shouldn't be having sex anyway- they are too old!

  23. 23

    My God your pathetic. Do u think your the only one in the world that has been ditched? Get the FUCK OVER IT!

  24. 24

    lol wow tammy's really going after her…funny what gay men in lesbians have in common lolol.

  25. 25

    She needs to move on. She isn't Jennifer Aniston, no one cares about their breakup.
    Maybe they are Brangelina to the Gay and Lesbian community but the rest of us do not care. I hope the best interest is paid to the children.

  26. 26

    melisa looks like a fukin hoot owl

  27. 27

    Finally some truth! Thank you Tammy. Hollyweird is so full of spin I'm surprised it's hasn't spun itself right out into the ocean. Mel is a lying bag of toxic waste. Why anyone would buy a ticket to see her do anything is beyond me. She's a wash up and she's dealing with a mid-life crisis. 49 going on ancient. Do us all a favour and fade to black

  28. 28

    Re: BELLA blue – LOL! I AGREE!

    I wish Tammy so much peace. It's going to take her a long time to process everything that's been done to her (we don't even know the half of it, I'm sure). Everyone should stop judging her and telling her to move on - she can't do that unless she's ready. It's obvious that her heart is still in shreds over this betrayal. Some women can get stuck in that anger, and I hope for the sake of her sanity and her children that she's able to begin healing and moving past the anger and on to the grief stage. But, until she's ready, venting out her anger is helpful and should be encouraged - so long as there's no physical violence that comes along with it (toward herself or others). It's a hard thing to come to terms with. For some it takes years and years, and I have a feeling Tammy might be one of those. Give her some understanding and sympathy - her life was torn to shreds by someone she loved, and with no warning. Tammy - you deserve so much better than Melissa Etheridge. I hope you are able to grieve properly and thoroughly so you can move on and find someone who is going to love you and your beautiful family - and appreciate you all.
