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.

But Billy Ray claims things are much better now: “I feel like I got my Miley back in a way,” he said during yesterday’s taping. “I feel like we are the daddy and daughter that we were before Hannah Montana happened.”

In October, Billy Ray and wife Tish issued a joint statement announcing plans to end a 17-year marriage. Miley has often been seen out with her mom since then – often defending her from paparazzi – but sources say she hasn’t spoken to her dad in months.

We’d be very happy for the family if that’s changed, but we also must be a bit hesitant to believe anything Billy Ray says. The man has proven to often be full of it.

UPDATE: Billy Ray has officially filed the proper paperwork in Williamson County, Tennessee, stating, “The parties are attempting a reconciliation.”
