“It’s actually a funny story, because I was coming out of an audition at the Sunset Gala in Hollywood. And Billy’s dog at the time, Tex, who was the most beautiful German shepherd you’d ever seen. He was We tapped into a divine purpose because we were, you know, just friends at the time and all these years later, that was about 14 years ago, so yeah, all these years later , we just got married.

One of the changes in this universe is that Robby Ray is now married to a young woman named Candace (Sara Erikson)who was Miley’s guardian.

When Miley as Hannah complains to her father about Candace, he responds: “You know your mother-in-law warned me that you might end up resenting her a little. She’s so smart with teenage girls. ” To which Miley quickly retorts:

“That’s because last year she was one.”
