Priscilla Ceballos on Today today

America's Still Plenty Pissed Off at Priscilla Ceballos

Seems America (or, at least, Matt Lauer) cannot get enough of Priscilla Ceballos, the mom who faked that dead-daddy-in-Iraq letter to score her 6-year-old daughter some Hannah Montana tickets. More than a week after the 25-year-old mother of three was first busted by WFAA-Channel 8's Byron Harris, Ceballos was on Today moments ago, once more apologizing for her bad decision: "Please accept my heartfelt apology, and please, do not punish my child for my mistake."

Ceballos says she's had to move out of her house -- and shut down her MySpace page. And her attorney and a psychiatrist showed up on Today, begging folks to just move along. The psychiatrist also says she knows why folks are obsessed with the story: "I think the country is very raw right now with young soldiers being killed in Iraq." --Robert Wilonsky

Update: Now, with video. After the jump.
