Michael Lohan to Billy Ray Cyrus: I Feel Ya!

by at . Comments

Michael Lohan has just reached out to fellow embattled celeb dad Billy Ray Cyrus in an open letter. We have no earthly idea why, so don't even ask.

Billy Ray raised eyebrows earlier this week when he told GQ that Satan and daughter Miley's star-making gig on Hannah Montana ruined his family.

He says he's desperate to get his famous offspring "sheltered from the storm." Those words clearly hit close to home for the father of Lindsay Lohan.

The Douche Store Called

If anyone knows what it's like to help his little girl follow her dreams into show business and explode into a bigger star anyone could've imagined, it's MiLo.

If anyone also knows what it's like to see that little girl's innocence stripped away, and for her to become embroiled in one scandal after another, it's MiLo.

If anyone knows what it's like to become estranged while in prison, then resort to ridiculous stunts like booking her on Letterman without her consent ...

Okay, Billy Ray didn't do that. But there are some similarities, people!

They're spelled out in Michael's open letter to the Cyrus patriarch ...

Billy Ray,

Oh My God! Am I seeing and reliving almost the same exact situations, scrutiny, pain and willingness to sacrifice yourself, for the sake of your family?

As hard and frustrating as it is, believe me when I say, it's a road worth traveled. Even if it may have its’ bumps and grinds along the way.

As I was raised, there is nothing like the love a man has for his family nor is there any length he will go to save or protect them.

The hardest part is, experiencing the pain that comes from the resistance of the very one(s) you are trying to save.

The one(s) you love so much, and are willing to die for, are too blinded by the "bright light" and people who use our loved one(s) while everyone thinks you are supposed to sit back and pretend it goes unseen.

As I don't see you as any one of the three monkeys with their hands over their ears, eyes and mouth. I, nor you, are the type of men who will sit back and do or say nothing at the risk of being persecuted.

When I look at what you are going through, I am forced to see myself. Two men who know what divorce and alienation, have done to our families.

Why I ask, if it so hard for our wives, children and even the public, to see that all we are trying to do, is to be there for our family and try to make things right?

Isn't it clear that the answer is so easy but the people who don't matter, make it so hard? While all we want is our family and normal lives back, others forsake that for so much more.

Why is it that people don't put themselves in or shoes? And say to themselves, “How would I feel if that was happening to me?”

The sad part is, they don't and they probably never will. But that doesn't mean that men like you and I should ever give up.

While we can't change the world, our example just might touch a few, and maybe even the one(s) we seek to save.

To that end, I want to say, that I know what you are going through, I feel your pain and frustration, and I also admire your strength, dedication and love, for your family in the name of God.

Best and God Bless,
Michael Lohan

Billy Ray Cyrus and Michael Lohan are both pathetic and by refusing to keep family problems private, they have both only added to the stress in their families. The same is true of Britney and Jamie Lynn's mom. Instead of supporting their daughters and protecting them, they try to make themselves look good and profit off of their children's problems. So sad. And then they wonder why their daughters turn their backs on them.

WOW ok? AKWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Um... "Bumps and grinds" is probably not what he meant to imply. I hope. Awkward...

Well both their daughters are on a "crash and burn" streak.

Neither of theses men have sacrificed anything for their famlies. In fact they profited off their kids when they were minors!! Both had the ability to shut it down when things started to get crazy but neither did. Their divorces are not their kids fault and how dare they suggest it! I might have a bit of sympathy or maybe think more of them if they owned up to their part of the problem and admitted it. But until then I will continue to see parents who allowed their children to do unacceptable things and basically let the kids run the show while that money went to them and are now upset to be cut out. how can they they wonder what happened when the example they gave was so bad? Though I must say Miley Cyrus is nowhere Lindsay Lohans wackjob-ness and I hope she never goes there.

Damn Michael Lohan! He'll do anything for publicity! But that letter does have some truths to it. Good luck to you, Mr. Cyrus. Keep on fighting for your kid!
