Billy Ray to Miley: Don’t Be a Jamie Lynn Spears

By: Betsy Waldman / October 30, 2008

Star reports that Billy Ray Cyrus used teen pregnancy icon Jamie Lynn Spears as an example to his sophisticated 15-year-old daughter Miley Cyrus of how NOT to further your career.

Tish Cyrus reportedly had a secret heart-to-heart with harried mother of two Lynne Spears in which Lynne described dealing with her two daughters—both experiencing life difficulties and with children of their own.

Billy Ray allegedly caught Miley making out with live-in underwear mannequin Justin Gaston and felt the need to set her straight about a few things.

“I told her in no uncertain terms that her career would be over if something stupid were to happen,” Billy Ray told a friend. “I think I made an impression on her—at least, I hope so.”

He might have a point. Have you seen any new episodes of Zoey 101 lately?
