Billy Ray Cyrus will not be appearing on The View today. His daughter made sure of that.
But the country singer won't let Miley stop him from making like Michael Lohan anyway, going off to a national publication about the importance of his loved ones.
"It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now," Billy Ray told People in a statement. "My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier."
As for saying he wished Miley never signed for Hannah Montana, and that Lucifer himself was attacking his family? Billy Ray says those comments to GQ were "explosive, and unintentionally so."
"It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues."
Seriously, people, stop disrespecting their privacy by reading the interviews Billy Ray continues to give! Sheesh! Wanna catch up on the entire, sordid mess? Watch The Pulse now:
