For whatever reason I had a flood of visitors yesterday who found Surrenders by Googling “tammy lynn blog.” These sightseers were searching for Hollywood Farm Girl, the not-so-anonymous blog by Tammy Lynn Michaels (née Mrs. Melissa Etheridge), which I wrote about back in October. This piqued my own interest so I took another look. What I found was a pretty fascinating post on embattled stars Isaiah Washington and Rosie O’Donnell (who aren’t mentioned by name, but come on). Apparently, they’re both friends of Melissa and Tammy’s.
i forgive his words,
because truth be told
i do not believe
lives in his heart
she is far braver than i
perhaps she has less fear than i
but either way
i do not recognize the fictional character
the media has been developing
Tammy also ruminates, as she frequently does, on the nature of fame. So, thanks random readers for inadvertently tipping me off. That was worth a look. I’m still not sold on the inexplicable trend of famous lesbians blogging in verse, but since I’m feeling uncharacteristically nice today I’ll let that one slide.
