She was a gold-digging wh.ore when she married him 17 years ago. We've all been waiting for this to happen and now she can ride on Miley's success, so long to Billy Ray!

Reading comments like the some of the ones here reminds of how very sick and evil some people can be, and no surprise, it seems that the prudish fundamentalists are the worst and most evil of the bunch. They see a family going through a difficult emotional time--a family that has brought much joy to hundreds of millions of people through their music and acting--and all they can think to do is heap defamation at them. The United States has become a sorry country in which hatred-filled religious zealots have been allowed to rule the roost. The more power these sick fundmentalists have, the worse our country becomes.
