The most shocking aspect of seeing Billy Ray Cyrus with Fred Durst on the Arsenio Hall show last night was only everything. I didn’t know Arsenio Hall had a talk show again after twenty years. I didn’t know Billy Ray Cyrus was still singing. And I didn’t know that Fred Durst was still alive. I’m still trying to process this surreal moment. You can watch the musical travesty here. It’s like some computer program is executing an algorithm for which two crappy singers, when combined, can produce a sound so intolerable, that you’re actually looking forward to throwing back to Arsenio.
I have a theory. You have sex with Brett Michaels and it will kill your marriage. Even if you happen to be married to Bret Michaels. Still, hard to imagine that Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus, the pair who produced such great hits as Miley Cyrus and whatever their other four kids names are that didn’t quite make it, are splitting up after such a long run. The divorce should free Billy Ray to focus on new ways to re-release his single hit and Tish to focus on making more money off of her children. Also, they both can now re-marry younger versions of their former spouse.
Last week Billy Ray Cyrus told GQ that he regrets not being a stronger parent to his daughter Miley, and that he thinks his desire to be her friend instead of her father gave her a certain amount of power which has put her on the wrong path.
Well tomorrow he was supposed to appear on the View. Time to check in on his new found parenting skills. Popeater talked to a source who said…
“When Miley found out her father was scheduled to appear on ‘The View’ she went nuts. Only last week, Billy shot his mouth off in GQ, and now he planned to sit down with [Barbara and Whoopi] and talk more crap about his family. No way would Miley or her team would let that happen.“
I can’t help but be impressed by the way Billy Ray instantly caved to the demands of his 18-year-old daughter. My sources also tell me he bought a new baby hog for their farm and put a sombrero on it and named it Selena Gomez. “Cuz she is a little piggy, ain’t she baby,” he asked. “A fat little Mexican piggy! But you, you’re Americas Sweetheart! You’re my hero, baby!”
