"i find it a wee bit fascinating that i legally, formally, and across the board, changed my name to Etheridge years ago. and yet, as all of these reports are published about the 'Prop Wait-We-Changed-Our-Minds-Git-To-The-Back-Of-The-Bus-Again'. all the articles are talking about melissa etheridge married to tammy lynn michaels. which i find interesting. what if they were to report all of this with my REAL NAME: ETHERIDGE. it wouldn't make much sense, would it, if they wrote about 'Melissa Etheridge can't marry Tammy Etheridge'.

how stupid does that sound? pretty stupid. and they know it."

--Actor and blogger Tammy Etheridge
