Now to our "Gma" cover story and the message from Miley Cyrus this morning after her unfortunate split from her husband Liam Hemsworth. The singer sharing a statement and posting on social media. Paula Faris is back with that. Good morning again, everyone. You know they've been married just a little over six months and Miley who's always marched to the beat of her own drum just last month said, quote, I don't fit into a stereotypical wife role.
