People thought Dolly Parton was a lesbian? Where have I been?
Apparently, yes, there are rumors that the famed country singer is in a relationship with a female friend! But according to Dolly, the rumors are just a load of bull.
Dolly was on Nightline where she set the record straight on the rumors of a secret lesbian relationship with gal pal Judy Ogle.
“Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade,” Parton explained. “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.”
The singer, who has been married to a man for 46 years, then likened her situation to Oprah Winfrey who has dealt with the rumor that she and Gayle King have been in a relationship for years.
“Like Gayle, her friend, Judy, my friend … [people] just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody.”
Dolly says she and Oprah have bonded over their similar lesbian rumors and are good friends.
Uh, I want to be Oprah’s friend…
