It looks like Billy Ray Cyrus and wife of 17 years Tish Cyrus are not getting divorced after all.

Billy met with the ladies of The View for a taping that will air Friday and revealed that his wife and the mother of his five children will be staying with him.

You may recall that Cyrus recently blasted Disney’s Hannah Montana for “destroying his family.” At that time Tish and Billy were estranged and Miley Cyrus was smoking salvia.

Now Billy says of his Hannah statement:

Hannah Montana didn’t ruin my family. Fame did…I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together … Things are the best they’ve ever been. Billy went on to add, “I feel like I got my Miley back,” and, “I feel like we’re the daddy and daughter we were before Hannah Montana.”

He also made amends with Disney:

“I don’t think ‘Hannah Montana’ ruined my family, but to set the record straight, I love ‘Hannah Montana.’ I love Disney. That didn’t tear my family apart. Now fame, fame is a different animal, you’ve got to be careful with that thing.
