Tammy Lynn Michaels Backs Isaiah Washington

by at . Comments

Isaiah Washington may hate gays, but not all of them hate him back.

Lesbian actress Tammy Lynn Michaels, partner of rocker Melissa Etheridge, is the first (and thus far, only) voice from the entertainment world's gay community to come out and defend the Grey's Anatomy pariah.

In her blog, the star of Popular and The L-Word writes, in free, stream of consciousness Rosie O'Donnell-style verse, that the Washington she knows - the one whose kids play with her and Etheridge's kids - "is not that man," in treatment for anger management.

Writes Michaels:

he is not a bad man ...
i forgive his words,
because truth be told
i do not believe
the word
lives in his heart

Try telling that to T.R. Knight. Regardless, Washington can use every bit support he can get. Rumor has it that his job is still not safe after his gay slur regarding his Grey's co-star.

But it's nice to see he's got the backing of someone like Michaels. Hey, if we're giving that lush Tara Conner a second chance, maybe there's hope for Washington.

On an unrelated note about same sex celeb couples, Tammy and Melissa are running neck and neck with Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi atop The Gossip's favorites now that Reichen Lehmkuhl broke up with Lance Bass.
