Speaking of my family, Billy Ray is still in NY singing his little heart out as Billy Flynn in the Broadway show Chicago. He tells me this has been the most challenging and rewarding thing he has done in a long time. As he started his stint on Broadway, and moved into his apartment in the city, Sandy hit hard and left behind lot's of destruction. Being there during that time, really let him experience NY as a community and how they pull together when times get tough and always come out stronger than ever!
Billy Rays last day as Billy Flynn is December 23rd and I'm sure it will be bittersweet for him. Glad to come home, but sad to say goodbye to Billy Flynn and all the amazing friends he made during his time in NYC!
As for the rest of the crew, Noah just ended her horse show season and her end of year banquet is tomorrow night. It's going to be a great night for her! She worked hard this year and it paid off BIG TIME! I will take lots of pics so I can be a proud Mamma and post them Monday!
Braison, has been busy rehearsing with his band and finishing up his portfolio. He has another photo shoot to finish before his issue of Troix comes out!
Brandi drove cross country with her dog and everything she owns and moved back to Tennessee! It was hard letting her go, but its something she's wanted to do for a while now! Im sure she will be back and forth a ton because Frank and Derol is based here in La. They will be playing along the west coast again very soon!
As for Miley, its been a really tough week. As you all know her beloved baby girl Lila passed away. Everyone has been so precious and so supportive of her and I love you all so much for that. Miley loved Lila more than anyone can imagine. I know some people were saying its JUST a dog, but to Miley she was so much more. In Miley's life, as you can imagine, its hard to let many people into your tight circle of family and friends. Anytime, that Miley is sad or having a hard day, Lila was her angel. The one that always loved her unconditionally no matter what was going on in her life at that time. She would always just curl up in bed with Lila for a few hours and then everything would always feel better! She always made me feel better too. I gave her the nickname Lila Sue Pumpernickel! lol I have no idea where that come from, but it stuck!
The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible. Sometimes things happen that we just cant understand. Miley still isn't ready to talk about it, but I thought you guys should know what happened.
For some unknown reason, Ziggy........ grabbed Lila. Not really sure if she was playing or what? She grabbed her in just the wrong spot and Lila didn't survive............. Please understand that Miley isn't ready to talk about this and we dont think Ziggy is a mean dog........ We took Ziggy to SPOT dog rescue and they found her a new home with no other pets or children just in case it wasn't a fluke. So not only did Miley lose Lila, she feels she lost Ziggy as well.
Anyway, Im really happy that VH1s Divas is tomorrow because being in rehearsals for the last few days has really been a huge blessing. It was a way to distract herself for a little while each day.
I know you guys are going to love her DIVAs performance.... I must say, IT KICKS TOTAL BUTT!!!!!!!!!! Make sure and tune in tomorrow night!
xoxoxxoxo Blessings, Tish
PS thanks to all of you who continually support my baby girl thru the good times and the hard time!
