Betrayal! Humiliation! Rage! Yes, Miley Cyrus could be feeling all these disturbing and conflicting emotions if the reports that her mother, Tish, had an affair with Bret Michaels, are true! Here's why!
No matter how big a celebrity Miley is -- the bottom line is that she is still a 17-year-old teenager AND there is almost nothing worse for any child than to have their family security destroyed. The rug has just been yanked out from under her feet in the most mortifying way: The world now knows Miley's shameful secret -- her mother is an alleged cheater.
"Teenagers are mortified enough by their parents' behavior even when their parents are perfectly fine," points out Beverly Hills psychologist Julie Armstrong. "Her mother has brought public shame on her."
Her mother may also be responsible for Miley's over-sexualized transformation in both her professional and personal life in the past year.
In her recent performances in three new videos, "Can't Be Tamed," "Who Owns My Heart," and the new "The Big Bang," Miley has groped men and women, writhed around on a bed, simulated girl-on-girl kissing, and dressed in corsets, tush-high skirts and over-the-knee boots.
For all those wondering, "Where are Hannah Montana's parents?" we now have an answer: Either busy with an alleged affair with rocker-bad boy Bret Michaels, or being suspicious about Tish's alleged affair.
