Looks like a skinny little coke whore...Most likely high tops and acid washed jeans on her too. Must look good in her 89 Camaro!

Miley is no Lindsay Lohan. They have very little in common in regards to their personality, talents, families, work reputation, or anything else. This is pure garbage promoted by the gossip industry that mindless people with no knowledge or not wanting to get any knowledge of either of these young women repeat. As Dari said, Miley spends little time partying. She definitely spends more time doing charities than partying. There are work-related gatherings, like movie wrap parties and cast gatherings or on-the-road touring gatherings that she'll attend, but that isn't Paris Hilton days of partying type of clubbing. She's a workoholic and much tougher-minded than Britney or Lindsay ever were and also has the two talents to use. Lindsay, while having a few albums, is primarily an actress, not both actress and sell-out stadium type of recording artist/performer. Miley's so-called "scandals" do not affect her work where Miley is known as a consummate professional.

Billy Ray admitted he was in a dark place during that GQ interview, should not have done it, has made mistakes parenting like anyone else. And all of you self-appointed know-it-alls that think you know how to parent a megastar teenager, where's your resume? Parent your own kids, you haven't the faintest idea of what it is like in the cut-throat, manipulative Hollywood world and the impact that has on a family. Yes, most of you are here to hate for entertainment. But, some of us here are entertained by the celebs and wish them well and set the record straight for those of you who are spreading falsehoods and want to be entertained by wishing a seriously special young woman to turn into a train wreck. For those wishing the worse for her, take a bow.

See this is why I don't have a big problem with the paps. Because a lot of you delusional fans think Miley is some perfect angel. 1) Grow up! 2) Stop worshiping these people! 3) Get some good morals! 4) Live your own life!

I wonder what Miley's Bruncles think of this mess. They probably passed this thing around the trailer like a joint.

#56 contd. And 5) Find Jesus and make him your Lord and Savior, not these people you see on TV or see in a movie or hear on the radio. When push comes to shove, they don't give a crap about you!!! All you are is a dollar to them.

That's wonderful! It makes much better sense for Billy Ray Cyrus to focus his energies on repairing his marriage than blaming Disney for wrecking it. His marital problems were probably already deeply embedded beneath the surface before Miley became famous. He played along with Miley's handlers because the money was just TOO GOOD TO PASS UP!!! I sincerely wish him and his entire family the best of luck. I hope everything works out.

I don't think so. neither of them Billy or Tish were at fault. Neither was it's Miley fault. It just one of those normal things married people go through. Glad they are getting back together. both deserve each other.

Good luck to them. Once people decide there really is something worth salvaging in a marriage, it's amazing the obstacles they can overcome. I've known some real success stories that way - trust can be rebuilt if both parties are determined to do it. Sometimes one partner is just too difficult and the best thing to do is for the other partner to walk away - but I don't think that's the case here. They're both normal people and have a chance to reconstruct.

@#62Ned, please let me let you in on a little secret: each article has a headline above it so that you can tell what the article is about. That way, if you don't like the subject, you can skip to the next article. So, next time, I hope I don't have to waste my time reading a post from you telling the world that you are such an idiot that you don't know how to read a headline and skip to the next article if it's on a subject you don't like!

Sarah at #16: " Maybe he should have been parenting rather then getting himself on his kids coat tails!"

There's no evidence that he was riding Miley's "coat tails". Miley herself always said that her dad paid for her normal expenses. He was not poor himself, and doesn't seem to have extravagant tastes.

He legitimately auditioned for the role in Hannah Montana (separately from his daughter) and definitely was an asset to the show - a good counterbalance to the Disney School of Overacting that afflicts all their kid actors. It wasn't his first acting job, either. If he wasn't doing that show, he would have found plenty else to do.

The guy was just hurting, his marriage was falling apart and like any dad - he was worried about his daughter's activities. He was just trying to figure out what he could have done differently. But honestly, Miley is nowhere near Lindsay Lohan trainwreck status, despite TMZ's hoping for it. For one thing, she's serious about learning her crafts (both acting and singing) and has a chance of developing adult-level skills as a result. She has the raw talent, but as we see with LL - that's not enough. You have to work at it. Miley will. And I doubt very much that, despite some experimenting, she will waste her chances like Lindsay by boozing and drugging. Miley just doesn't have Lindsay's deep-seated problems driving her. Sorry, TMZ. Look elsewhere for your next trainwreck.

Good to hear Billy Ray acknowledge that being his daughter's "friend" was the wrong way to parent. He knows he has to rethink his family/marriage management skills.Most Hollywood types cling to their mistaken beliefs. It's nice to see someone evaluating his choices and focusing on repairing his marriage.
