Tammy Lynn Michaels is Getting Screwed Over By Melissa Etheridge

Tammy Lynn Michaels and Melissa Etheridge have been broken up for some time now, but their bitter divorce continues.

This weekend, Tammy posted a Rosie-esque blog entry, in which she paints her ex-wife to be a manipulative and cruel person who doesn’t seem to care about the well-being of the mother of her children.

Here’s the post:

just a cornucopia of thoughts.

“pays all the bills”
not entirely true

“pays all the bills she chooses to pay”
“pays all the bills her people thinks
are important enough to pay”
is more accurate

when i went to get cash
just last week
for the three of us to eat

today i was shopping for birthday decor
4th next sunday!
little cash for lunch?
nope- not enough funds
no food

“pays all her bills”
not entirely true

my medical bills?
yes- insurance covers it all
for a small monthly fee
the house? i didn’t pick it out
they did
the kids’ education?
she chose the private schooling
i’m fine if they’re in public

using my kids as pawns? in boston?
i had a choice to come to LA
-see so many thing were bleeding
and i took the choice
her lawyer lies about
me using the kids as pawns –
he should have looked at the schedule
before we left LA- Boston was tentative-
and the silence from her regarding my actions
breaks me, as she lets the world think
(again) something else is true
than what is and was.

she plays the games with her lawyer now
by being quiet.

i sit here quietly watching her people
launch campaigns against me on the ‘net
smudgin’ and sludgin’
but they don’t know nothin’
what i came into the relationship with
commercial cash and television stashes
working here and there in the marriage

and now some sit in tiny judgement
not knowing how much is fact
how far it goes back
how much is fiction
and how much is opinion.

but i can tell you i’ve turned from that machine hungry hungry too many times now– and i might never trust another soul again.

and i don’t think i know what love is, or a promise. and romance? smoke and mirrors, ladies!!! smoke and mirrors! don’t fall for it! it’s all a line up for bull that’ll leave you with saggy boobs and stretch marks in the end.

and to be honest?

what the fuck is marriage all about anyway? i thought i did everything i was supposed to do. support support support. love family, be there, love, right? all for naught or have i still everything to learn about love? and that was nothing? or the letting go of this is THEE LESSON of loving. argh.

someone told me that chemotherapy just messes with a brain chemistry, changes the brain, the person, and makes them just in general different. they might b meaner, or illogical, often imbalanced, or whatever. but they just don’t come out the same. hardly ever, i am told. and they can’t help it. it just is.

and i think about that alot too.

It’s difficult to tell who’s right and who’s wrong in a situation where you’re only hearing one side of things, but this post makes me feel for Tammy. At one point the two seemed so happy together, and I’m sure they both feel like they, at one point, made promises they weren’t able to keep. Still, if Melissa is really communicating to the mother of her children through her lawyers… that ain’t right.

  • People break up and get divorced all the time. Tammy thinks she has a “right” to be a stay at home mother while her ex supports her. Well guess what? Most moms would love that too, but it is not reality. It’s also not a good message to send your kids. They will grow to respect you for working to provide for them. She said she has some help for 8-2 every day, which is so much more than most parents have. She is crying poverty because there isn’t enough money for her to eat out and live like she was before, but her ex is paying the household bills, which leaves her a huge step above most single moms. Tammy admitted the kids schooling was paid for, as well as money budgeted for household expenses. I just think that for all the crying she does about being a victim and living in poverty forever, she should really think about the kind of message she is sending her own kids. Get a job, have your family watch the kids when they get home from school, and start being independent. Just because you had a “hard” childhood doesnt mean you should be taken care of by your ex. Move on and stop feeling sorry for yourself, Tammy. Anyone who really reads your blog will see the self-pity laced in every passage. You wanted to know what the lessons are-take responsibility for your decisions and your life. There are a lot of women who have it so much worse. Try helping them.

  • If they were married in California (don’t know if they were officially married), Tammy might be entitled to alimony / spousal support pending divorce proceedings. Just based on the income disparity, Tammy may legally be due additional money.

    When I divorced my wife, I made double what she made and had to make payments for a period of time (2 years) to her to “equalize” the income disparity in lieu of alimony (after only 4 years of marriage). I also had to pay her off for the difference in the increase in value of MY house (which I bought before we were married) between the time we married and when we got divorced, even though I had always paid 100% of the mortgage, utilities and repairs before, during and after the marriage. Didn’t think it was fair, but that had nothing to do with it in the eyes of the law.

    I tend to back Tammy on this whole issue, simply because Melissa has the resources to get her side of the story out thru professionals (i.e. lawyers & PR flacks). Melissa’s just like a lot of wealthy people, they can be really CHEAP.

  • Riiiight…cause if Tammy would just get suck it up…like all those moms who have it hard(er)…that will totally help them.

    Oh and I’m sure when they were whispering sweet nothings to each other about kids, Melissa was like “I know the yaht and mansion are cool….but if we have kids and break-up…it’s double-shifts at the Dairy Queen for you!!”

  • cry baby, for fucks sake get a fucking job and raise your kids. melissa is already paying for the schoo, the house, the utilities, what more does she want? pity party for u, i dont think so bitch

  • Everything happens 4 a reason, maybe it was mutual, maybe it was not, there are always 2 sides of a story. Maybe people shoud talk and maybe people should be QUIET!!! There are kids envloved and they are going through this change as well. Let melissa be herself which she is amazing, she has gone through enough crap and i and others dont want her to go through anymore. Melissa is being a mother and caring for her kids like a mom should.Tammy is being a mom but with a mommydearest attitude and should stop.
