POMONA - Billy Ray Cyrus was having his $400 shark-skin cowboy boots fitted with brand new heels when he ran into his old friend Texas singer Shake Russell.
The two had actually toured together in the late 80s and had become good friends singing on each others albums, hunting on each others ranches, and plowing on each others tractors.
Shake had even named his favorite rooster King Billy Ray after Cyrus and Cyrus had repaid the honor by renaming his favorite bird dog Shaker after Russell.
The two had double dated many times and had even had several fun-filled picnics with the extremely popular Bubblewood sisters Jenna and Puma of Galveston. Jenna would later marry famed Houston attorney Buffington Homer Heart.
Jenna actually named her first son after Billy Ray's most famous hit song "Achy Breaky Heart."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Achy Breaky Heart, who is now 13, has a country band named the Rattlesnake Kickers and they do cover songs of older country artists such as Billy Ray Cyrus, Alabama, Restless Heart, and Woodchuck Chuck & The Woodchuck Chuckin' Cowpokes.]
As Cyrus and Russell sat in a booth at a Burger Bandit in Pomona, Cyrus confessed to Russell that he thinks that he has fallen in love with a certain blonde woman who he thinks hung the moon.
Shake shook his head. He asked Cyrus if her initials were K.G.
Russell guessed that it was Kate Gosselin star of the reality show Kate Plus 8. He started laughing so much he spilled his Coke Zero fountain drink on Billy Ray's curly fries. He mentioned to BRC if he knew that Kate's got some baggage.
Billy Ray replied that he knew but he added that she had lost most of that weight since her trip to Australia and New Zealand.
Shake said he was not referring to her muffin top, thunder thighs, or her expansive ass but instead to her eight unruly-as-hell brats.
Cyrus put down his double cheeseburger hold the onions, and told Shake that he is in love with Kate "The Great" Gosselin.
He pointed out that he knows that once she knows that he is in love with her that she will tell him that she will turn over full custody of the eight kids to her ex-husband Jon "Mr. 3 Inches" Gosselin.
