Miley Cyrus has laid down the law at home and has banned her father Billy Ray from doing reality TV.

Billy Ray - who rose to fame in the 1990s with Achy Breaky Heart - is said to have been offered several fly-on-the-wall shows but has so far resisted the offers.

“Billy Ray has turned down what must be his sixth reality show offer in the last four years because Miley has been very strict with her parents about not doing them, even though they have been offered a fortune by all the big players, including Bravo, Lifetime and E, to open up their home to cameras,” an insider told

Miley fears that a reality show featuring Billy Ray could result in the kind of car-crash TV that former US Olympian Bruce Jenner manages when he appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

“Miley would much rather do a Christmas special or a concert at the Hollywood Bowl with her dad rather than watch him embarrass himself like Bruce Jenner on TV every week,” the insider claimed.

“Miley is a student of the mistakes of the people who have come before her, and she always thought Britney Spears’ decision to do a reality show was the beginning of her downfall.”
