Dolly Parton: I’m Not Lesbian
Recently Dolly Parton made it absolutely clear in an interview that, she isn’t gay. Basically, Parton says she’s well aware of the rumors that she’s in a secret relationship with her friend Judy Ogle, but that simply isn’t the fact. “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”.
Parton also revealed how she bonded with with Oprah over the lesbian rumors, since Oprah has also been hounded by false rumors that she’s in a secret relationship with her friend Gayle King. “Like Gayle, her friend, Judy, my friend … [people] just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody” Parton was quoted as saying. For those who are still in doubt, here are a few facts: On May 30, 1966, she and Carl Thomas Dean were married in Ringgold, Georgia, on May 30, 2011, they celebrated their 45th anniversary.

She had met Dean at the Wishy-Washy Laundromat two years earlier on her first day in Nashville. His first words to her were: “Y’all gonna get sunburnt out there, little lady”. Later, she said, “We’re really proud of our marriage. It’s the first for both of us. And the last”. Dean, who runs an asphalt road-surface-paving business in Nashville, has always shunned publicity and rarely accompanies her to any events. According to Parton, he has only ever seen her perform once. However, she has also commented in interviews that, although it appears they do not spend much time together, it is simply that nobody sees him.
She also commented on Dean’s romantic side claiming that he will often do spontaneous things to surprise her and sometimes even writes her poems. The couple partly raised several of Parton’s younger siblings at their home in Nashville, leading her nieces and nephews to refer to her as “Aunt Granny”. She has no children of her own. Interestingly, Parton is also the godmother of actress and singer Miley Cyrus.
