The star of NBC's The Brave sat down for a revealing interview with Allegedly hosts Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss.
"My ex and I have been through a lot," Heche, 48, noted of her relationship with Tupper, 52. " We're still great friends. People change."
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Heche is asking the court for joint custody and "reasonable visitation" for Tupper with their son, Atlas.
Heche allegedly left her former partner, cameraman Cameron "Coley" Lafoon, for Tupper after they starred together in the 2006 dramedy Men in Trees.
While Heche says she could be open to being with a woman, she understands why the gay community rejected her so many years ago after she publicly said she "chose" to be with another woman.
These days, Heche told Allegedly, she's just wants to "play poker and have some fun."
