Melissa Etheridge is a breast cancer survivor and has been cancer free, by her own account, for nine years. She was with her last partner, Tammy Lynn Michaels, throughout her chemo and breast cancer battle and then she got better, cheated on Tammy with a mutual friend, left her and tried to get out of paying alimony or child support. That’s not conjecture, Tammy pretty much aired all their dirty laundry when she found her lifestyle massively downsized in the wake of the split.
I wouldn’t give that full unflattering intro to Melissa if she had just said that she disagreed with AngelinaMore >
On Friday, the Supreme Court finally made their ruling in the Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics case.

Over the past week, Brad Pitt has been to five countries promoting World War Z. And this is pretty much the first time in a week that I’ve paid any concentrated attention to him. I can’t help it, when Angelina Jolie is beside him, she is the only person I’m really seeing. It’s not even that I dislike Brad – I’ve grown to like him so much in the past decade – but when Angelina around, no one really matters. I feel bad for Mireille Enos too – she was at the UK premiere of World War Z and no one paid any attention to her (and she’s Brad’s costar!) because it was Angelina’s big post-surgeryMore >
