Marie Osmond, Billy Ray Cyrus

Pot, meet kettle.

Marie Osmond, that doll-making savior of Middle America, has uncharacteristically lashed out at Billy Ray Cyrus' parenting skills in the wake of daughter Miley's back-baring photo flap.

"My parents never, never left us alone," the little-bit-country one told AOL Television. "We always had some form of a guardian or something with us, a guardian that would represent what they would have done. But in [Miley's] case, her dad stepped out [of the photo session], and that's when it happened.

"How do you say no to somebody like Annie [Leibovitz] when you're a little girl? It's an interesting thing that happened with her."

Also interesting, perhaps at least to Cyrus, is that Osmond's own adopted teenage son checked himself into rehab just last year.

In his defense, when there's no form of a guardian around—when they're busy, say, fainting on national television—it's hard to say no to somebody like Jack [Daniels].
