After announcing their split last year, Billy Ray Cyrus is now claiming that he and his wife Trish have decided to reconcile, MTV News reports.
“I dropped the divorce,” Miley Cyrus’ dad told “The View” hosts during a pre-taped appearance that aired on Friday. ”I wanted to put my family back together.”
Cyrus was on the show to promote his new album, I’m an American, out in June. He claimed his family are working out their problems. Which is good, because Billy Ray and Trish have been married for 17 years. Counts for something.
“Communication I think is one of the biggest problems that we as human beings have in this whole world,” he said. “And I think for the first time me and my entire family are finally communicating with each other in a way that, it’s been quite some time … and to answer your question, things are really the best they’ve ever been.”
Cyrus also retracted the controversial statements he made in a GQ interview, in which he said that his and Miley’s hit Disney series “Hannah Montana” destroyed his family. ”I feel like I kind of got my Miley back in a way,” he said. “I feel like we are the daddy and the daughter that we were before ‘Hannah Montana’ happened. I love ‘Hannah Montana.’ I love Disney. That didn’t tear my family apart.”
I’ve never been a fan of fathers who discuss every detail of their personal lives with the media. I mean, Michael Lohan anyone? That being said, though, I am glad Billy Ray is talking about these issues. I’m glad he’s moving forward in a positive way and genuinely taking back all the negative things he’s said in the past.
After a tough year, including the flak he’s gotten for the GQ interview and Miley’s salvia controversy, I’m really rooting for this family to get back on their feet. If not, it’ll break my “Achy Breaky Heart!”
Sorry, I had to.
These are the lowest expectations Trish Stratus will ever face.
The wrestling diva will host the 2006 Canada’s Walk of Fame induction ceremonies.
So why are the expectations so low? Tom Green has hosted the last two years. Stratus can mispronounce Wayne Gretzky’s name and still be applauded for her brave efforts. As long as she doesn’t milk a cow on stage, she can’t fail.
The WWE star will host the show on June 3 in Toronto.
Inductees will be announced on March 8.
