YES I AM... AN ACTRESS

Melissa Etheridge is switching sides. No, the sapphic rocker isn't pulling an Anne Heche and going straight. She's crossing over from music to acting, inking a deal for her very own sitcom. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has ordered a script for a comedy that is being billed as a reversed Will & Grace. Etheridge would play a gay woman who lives with her best friend, a straight dude. But there's a twist: The two of them will be raising the daughter of another friend, setting up the inevitable David Crosby sweeps appearance.
