Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on Good Morning America yesterday and somehow resisted the urge to throw a chair through a window following his sit-down with Robin Roberts.

After coming across as loonier than Tila Tequila in an earlier interview with GQ, we need to give Billy Ray props for standing up and taking responsibility this time around.

Billy Ray Cyrus on Good Morning America

Referring to his messy marriage (now on the mend), Billy Ray says he was "surrounded in darkness" when he claimed Satan was attacking his family. Now, after re-assessing his diatribe, Billy Ray explained his point in clearer terms:

"Fame can be a dangerous animal... And it's a delicate thing... [But] I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. I wouldn't change anything."

It sounds like there really is hope for the Cyrus family after all.

A few months after seemingly splitting, Billy Ray and Tish are both ready to patch up their relationship. The former attempted to do so in a public setting last week, saying on The View that he was withdrawing his petition for divorce.

Now, Tish has issued a statement via Facebook that also makes it clear she wants to work things out. Miley's mom writes:

Big thanks to all of our family, friends, and fans who have kept us in their thoughts and prayers. I feel so blessed to have so much support from all of you. Our family weathered a huge storm and I feel we are stronger than we have ever been. Much love to all of you guys! You're the BEST.

Miley, meanwhile, is busy making plans of her own: she'll set off on an international tour this spring.

During an appearance on The View that will air today, Billy Ray Cyrus made a startling announcement: he said he's called off his divorce from wife Tish.

"I want to put my family back together," he told the hosts and the audience, adding: "Things are the best they've ever been."

That's quite the departure from how things have been recently, considering the interview Billy Ray gave to GQ last month in which he blamed Hannah Montana for destroying his family and said Satan was attacking Miley.

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."

  • Destroyed by Fame?
  • Destroyed by Daddy

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:

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."

Billy Ray Cyrus may have come out and directly blamed his daughter's involvement in show business for recent troubles, but Rosie O'Donnell doesn't think he meant it.

Asked about the country singer's rant to GQ this month, in which he said Hannah Montana "destroyed my family," Rosie told Access Hollywood that Cyrus was just being a concerned parent.

“I think he’s doing what a lot of us are doing that have teenagers, including me, [saying], ‘What the hell is going on here? I thought I was in control of this place and now the kids are acting out. The animals are ruining the zoo!’”

Does O'Donnell think Hollywood is responsible for Miley's behavior? No. It's just a teenager acting like a teenager.

“A 16 or 18-year-old girl is going to separate from the parents no matter what. They’re going to smoke some salvia... they’re going to drink some beer. This is what happens when kids are 18 and they’re trying to separate."

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 ...

Miley Cyrus is angry. Really angry. Peeved even.

A friend tells Pop Eater that the former Disney star simply can't believe her father opened up to GQ this manner in such a disturbing, strange manner.

"To say Miley is angry is an understatement," a pal says. "She's furious that her own flesh and blood would make a private matter so public. Who does he think he is, Michael Lohan?"

  • Billy Ray
  • Aspiring Movie Star

Reports claim Miley and her father have not spoken since December. We can't confirm that, but this same source says Miley has labeled her dad's comments as "unforgivable," adding:

"This isn't what a father does. He never said a bad world about Hannah Montana all those years it made millions for the family, and now that Miley has turned 18 and is making her own decisions, he does this. Unforgivable."

It's hard to argue with this insider, isn't it?

In a wide-ranging interview with GQ this month, Billy Ray Cyrus says he and his kids are under attack by Satan.

He also says the casting of Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana "destroyed" his family and that he'd take it all back "in a second" if he could. How does Disney feel about these remarks?

Miley at the Mic

“We saw it coming for a long time,” a company source tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She wanted to mature herself, but it kind of backfired. Her future without Disney is TBD.”

As for Billy Ray's assertion in the same article that he made no money off Miley, the Disney insider says that's “ludicrous.” That pretty much sums up most of the country singer's quotes in that interview.

We mean, seriously: if an attack by Satan simply results in some skimpy clothing and bong smoking, this Lucifer guy has been been way oversold for awhile now.
