Tammy Lynn Micheals ‘blindsided’ by Melissa Etheridge divorce papers
HollywoodNews.com: Tammy Lynn Michaels took to her blog twice yesterday to publicly express her hurt and anger over wife Melissa Etheridge filing for divorce. In a poem titled “blindsiding”, she wrote,
FILE FOR DIVORCE!!!!!!
even though we both promised
no filing until after tour
in the fall
her broken promises
told to me by
i’m raising the kids
doing what i can
second set of yours
could you stop blind sighting [sic] me?
unless it’s another art form you’re working on?
Michaels also called Etheridge a “fame crawler”, writing about her bitterness over giving up her own career and raising Etheridge’s children so that “She with the Guitar” could focus on hers, and closing on a note of determination: “i’m going to try to hang on to my honesty and my integrity and my gumption. i also am going to hold on to my balls, i think. if someone tries to make my life a cartoon, i’m going to step in.”
Melissa Etheridge filed for divorce earlier this week, apparently without notifying Michaels. They announced the mutual separation in April. The two had been together for over eight years.
