Melissa Etheridge Announces Plans to Marry

Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels sing wedding bells.

Okay so excuse me if I'm wrong, but haven't Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels been married for a while now? I thought they were one of those couples like Rosie and other  famous gay celebs who ran off to San Fran or Massachussetts and got hitched. Well, Lesbianlife claims they did tie the knot back in 2003, but it was only a civil union. However, according to Reuters, Etheridge has just recently announced their plans to be a "real" married couple (conveniently before the Proposition 8 decision) to celeb TV show Extra. Looks like Melissa is the only one who'll walk across the fire for Tammy Lynn.

The two already have four children together and Melissa also has two with her former partner David Crosby, I mean Julie Cypher. "Yes we have four children and we're trying to find the right time..." Melissa, a survivor of breast cancer is also famous for topping the charts with "Come to My Window" and "I want to Come Over". Her partner, Tammy Lynn played a part in the lesbian TV show The L Word, and who could forget her stellar performance as mean girl Nicole Julian on the old WB show Popular. I know that character will stay with me forever.
