Dolly Parton talks lesbian rumors and gay rights
Dolly Parton has a new book out tomorrow so we will be seeing her pretty face out there promoting it in the coming days.
I say the more Dolly, the better!
The book is called Dream More and it’s a memoir.
Dolly will be on ABC News Nightline tonight chatting about the book and more.
On persistent rumors that she and Judy Ogle, one of her oldest childhood friends, are lesbians (similar to the Oprah and Gayle chatter) Parton says: ‘Like Gayle, (Oprah’s) friend, Judy, my friend, they just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody. Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade. We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we’re not romantically involved.’
On hosting a ‘Gay Day’ each year at her Tennessee theme park Dollywood: ‘When it first started there were people giving us threats, I still get threats. But like I said, I’m in business. I just don’t feel like I have to explain myself. I love everybody.’
