Miley Cyrus doing “Montana” for Disney “destroyed my family,” Billy Ray says

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: In a very candid interview, Billy Ray Cyrus says he regrets letting his teenage daughter, Miley, star on Disney’s “Hannah Montana” program and wishes that the show never existed.

“It destroyed my family,” Cyrus told GQ of the enormously popular television program, which spawned movies and concert tours for leading lady Miley.

“I’ll tell you right now — the damn show destroyed my family. And I sit there and go, ‘Yeah, you know what? Some gave all.’ It is my motto, and guess what? I have to eat that one. I some-gave-all’d it all right. I some-gave-all’d it while everybody else was going to the bank. It’s all sad.”

When asked if Cyrus wishes the show never happened, he confesses, “Yeah. I’d take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just be everybody okay, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I’d erase it all in a second if I could.”

Cyrus’ personal life does appear to be in disarray. He’s recently divorced, and Miley seems to be bouncing from one tabloid scandal to the next. Daddy Cyrus takes some of the blame for that, while deflecting some of it back at Miley’s handlers.

“Every time something happened in Miley’s career, every time the train went off the track, if you will — Vanity Fair, pole-dancing, whatever scandal it was — her people, or as they say in today’s news, her handlers, every time they’d put me … ‘Somebody’s shooting at Miley! Put the old man up there!’ Well, I took it, because I’m her daddy, and that’s what daddies do. ‘Okay, nail me to the cross, I’ll take it,’” he said. “All those people around, they used me every time. It became so obvious that, man, no matter what happens, they’re going to put you up there and let you take the bullet.”
