Engaged: Melissa Etheridge, 52, and her TV producer girlfriend Linda Wallem, she announced on Twitter while cheering the DOMA ruling. “I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties and getting fully, completely and legally married this year to my true love of over three years,” the singer-songwriter wrote. Now, there is some complex history: Wallem, creator of “Nurse Jackie,” was an attendant at Etheridge’s 2003 commitment ceremony with ex Tammy Lynn Michaels, with whom she shares six-year-old twins. (Etheridge also has two kids via previous girlfriend Julie Cypher and sperm donor David Crosby.)
