Man the dude is going through a mid life crisis. I too went through the same and have just got out of it. Infact the girl that I met was 25 and I was 45, needless to say it didn't last. But since then I purchased the car of my dream,that I have fllen in love with. At least I can claim that I can't drive the 300,000 dollar house that I lost to my wife, but I can live in my car.

the truth    

I saw earlier pictures of Tish and she was really quite stunning. I think Miley favors her in the mouth area only; the rest is all Billy Ray. I feel for this family, as I would any family going through this of course. My parents divorced when I was 16 and it affected me in the way of getting away with anything because no one cares what you're doing anymore because the other problems are too big.

I wish Miley the best of everything; who knows, maybe this will ground her and she'll take on a more parental role with her siblings.

Good luck to the Cyrus family.

I cannot imagine how this guy can blame Disney with a straight face for the choices he made as a father. He alone is responsible for his daughter's career path, his personal fortune FROM his daughter's career path, and any fall-out thereof. Man-up Billy, you did it to yourself!
