Billy Ray Continues His Tour Of Contrition!

Yeah. This is the understatement of the week.

Billy Ray Cyrus really screwed the pooch back in December when he simultaneously destroyed his relationship with his daughter Miley and Disney by claiming that the network destroyed his family, but now that he and wife Tish are hoping to reconcile their broken marriage, he's begun quite the tour of contrition, and is claiming now that he hasn't been a very good father!

He explains:

"I did kind of approach being a dad as a friend. I was a great playmate. I mean, for teaching [my children] how to camp and build fires and ride motorcycles and four-wheelers, and horses, and all those fun kind of things. I was really good at that. As far as sitting down and doing algebra and science, the homework, I wasn't very good at that. So I look back on it and think, 'You know what? Maybe, no doubt, I could have been a better dad.' I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. I wouldn't change anything. What I meant to say, and what I hope I said was … fame can be a dangerous animal. And it's a delicate thing. You know, when you get in this industry and … you strike so hard for that moment. But, fame is dangerous. Miley has a great heart. She's very intelligent. She will make good choices and she knows right from wrong."

Well, we're glad that he's owning up to his mistakes and attempting to make amends!

We're sure that he was feeling lot of confusion and anger when he made those comments, and we can see how what he was trying to say could have gotten twisted because of that.

We just hope that he and his family can make it through all of this without any more pain or heartache, because if they do, we're sure they'll come back stronger than ever.

    It's a lot easier for people observing things from a distance to see what's up, but to the people involved in emotional situations, not so much. He took a little time and distance to get here, but he got to it. Blessings to him and his family.

    Always glad when familys can pull together and work it out. You know it has to be hard to have everything made public. On a lighter note, I can't stand his hair cuts !!! The highlights are just awful too.

    Hey, Billy Ray…..Miley is NOT intelligent, she is NOT making good choices, and she does NOT know right from wrong, so why are you tip-toeing around that? You are still trying to be her friend instead of the father you should be. It is not intelligent, good choices or knowing right from wrong when you mess with the chemical balance in your brain, by infecting it with psychedlic hallucinogenic substances.

    He has nothing to be contrite about. If it wasnt for him, she'd just be another C/W off-spring name dropper hoping for a freebie here and there.

    Not ever having listened to country music, I knew very little about Billy Ray Cyrus - other than hearing Achy Breaky Heart.
    When I happened to read the article in GQ magazine, my first impression is that he is COMPLETELY honest about his feelings. Now that he has probably gotten a TON of flack about his comments from Disney..he has had to change his tune a bit. Miley would be a nobody if it weren't for Disney, and although she is talented, she would have never been able to showcase that talent without Disney. Yeah kids grow up and make bad choices, it's the way of things, especially in Hollywood. The things that happen there in beachy, warm and more open society, generally either make the rest of the country cringe or smile with jealous humor.

    Douchebag. The only reason he's sorry at all is he was about to lose his free ride.

    what a crappy father. he let his daughter do whatever she wanted. he didn't stop her from being a bully in school or a giant slut onstage and now she's a big drinker and probably does harder drugs
