Poor Billy Ray Cyrus.
Not only is Miley's dad under attack by Satan, but his plans to continually make headlines by throwing his daughter under the bus have been thwarted: Miley and her handlers have shot down Billy Ray's scheduled interview on The View tomorrow.
"She went nuts," a family friend tells Pop Eater of Miley's reaction to her dad sitting down with Barbara Walters and company. "Only last week, Billy shot his mouth off in GQ, and now he planned to sit down and talk more crap about his family. No way would Miley or her team let that happen."
Sources say Miley is furious over her father's rant. She was even in denial over his claims and accusations. Until Billy Ray booked this PR opportunity, that is.
"At first Miley defended her dad, wanting to believe he had been tricked into saying bad things by the magazine," added the insider. "Miley truly wanted to give her father the benefit of the doubt, goodness knows she's said things she wishes she could take back. But after she found out about his media trip to New York, no more excuses could be made."
